NBC Processing Times: USCIS
The USCIS National Benefits Center serves a unique role within USCIS as part of the Field Operations Directorate. This USCIS Service Center opened in 2001 in Lee’s Summit, Missouri, and was originally called the Missouri Service Center. This is why NBC receipt notices begin with the letters “MSC.” Below are updated NBC processing times as of June 30, 2016, posted August 11, 2016.
The primary mission of the NBC 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 conducting background and security checks and reviewing the evidence an applicant submits to support eligibility for a particular immigration benefit.

NBC Processing Times
NBC Processing Times is a bit of a misnomer in some cases, as NBC does not determine processing times for I-485 and N-400 applications, which constitute the majority of the NBC’s workload. NBC does not determine processing times for those case types because NBC does not conduct final adjudication of those cases–a USCIS Local Field Office does. So each Local USCIS Field Office determines processing times for Form I-485 and Form N-400 applications. For processing times on N-400 and I-485 applications, please check local USCIS Field Office processing times.
