NBC Processing Times: USCIS
USCIS National Benefits Center serves a unique role within USCIS as part of the Field Operations Directorate. NBC opened in 2001 in Lee’s Summit, Missouri; its original name was the Missouri Service Center. This is why NBC receipt notices begin with the letters “MSC.” Below are updated NBC processing times as of August 31, 2016, posted October 18, 2016.
NBC’s primary mission is to prepare immigration applications for adjudications that require an interview at a USCIS Field Office. Preparing such an application requires considerable time and effort, including background and security checks and reviewing evidence to support eligibility.

NBC Processing Times
The term NBC Processing Times is sometimes a misnomer since NBC does not determine processing times for I-485 and N-400 applications, which constitute the majority of its workload. NBC does not determine processing times for those case types because NBC does not conduct final adjudication of those cases. Rather, a USCIS Local Field Office adjudicates I-485 and N-400 applications. So, each Local USCIS Field Office determines processing times for I-485 and N-400 applications. For N-400 and I-485 processing times, please check local USCIS Field Office processing times.
