  • MDUdall: New NBC (Missouri) Report is Out


    As you may know from one of my prior postings on the board, the Missouri
    Service Center has been renamed the “National Benefits Center” or NBC.



    I just received the latest National Benefits Center Bi-Monthly Aging
    Report from AILA (Thank you AILA). You can visit my page located at,
    http://members.aol.com/MDUdall/sctimes.htm if you are
    interested in seeing the National Benefits Center Bi-Monthly Aging
    Report numbers for all case types pending at the NBC.



    You can use the National Benefits Center Bi-Monthly Aging Report to
    determine two things, 1) has your case been taken off of the shelf yet
    and given to an officer for processing, and 2) is it overdue. At the
    NBC, a BCIS officer should approve, deny or request additional evidence
    within 60 business days of being given your case for adjudication. If
    your case becomes overdue, than at that time you should notify the NBC
    to bring this to their attention.



    If your "notice" date on your receipt notice is later in time than the
    date listed for I-129f's on the National Benefits Center Bi-Monthly
    Aging Report, than your case is still waiting its turn to be assigned to
    an officer (And therefore it’s obviously not yet overdue). If your
    "notice" date on your receipt notice is earlier in time than the date
    listed for I-129f's, than your case has likely been given to an officer
    for adjudication. I say "likely" because if your case receives an IBIS
    hit, than you cannot use this report to determine an overdue date as the
    National Benefits Center Bi-Monthly Aging Reports can only be used for
    cases that do not receive an IBIS hit. If your case receives an IBIS
    hit, it will be pulled from the normal stream of cases and will
    experience a delay; slight to significant until a BCIS officer
    eventually does the follow up IBIS work required in your case.



    Bookmark my page and check it every few days in order to monitor the
    National Benefits Center Bi-Monthly Aging Reports. As the name of these
    reports suggest, new reports are usually issued twice a month; however
    despite the name, these reports sometimes only come out once a month (or
    even less frequently).



    When you first see a report showing that your "notice" date is earlier
    in time than the date listed for I-129f's, write down the date of
    publication of that particular report. Than take your calendar and count
    off 60 business days from the date of publication of that particular
    report. That is your "overdue" date and you should note that date on
    your calendar. Notify the NBC if your case becomes overdue.



    Ignore any projected processing times you might find on your receipt
    notice, that you might read on the BCIS' on-line status checking page or
    hear on the National Customer Service Center’s automated phone system as
    those are wild guesses made by BCIS HQ (Not the NBC) and often do not
    reflect the reality of what is going on at the NBC at any given time.
    These projected processing times are also subject to change, and are not
    binding on the BCIS.



    Relying on these projected processing times will not give you realistic
    expectations. Instead, monitor the National Benefits Center Bi-Monthly
    Aging Reports as that information actually does come from the NBC, it
    reflects the dates of cases that have been given to an officer for
    processing, will help you calculate a realistic “overdue” date, and will
    thus help you achieve realistic expectations.



    Don’t make any plans, reservations, quit your job, make travel
    arrangements, dispose of property, etc., based on projected processing
    times listed on your receipt notice, listed on the BCIS’ on-line status
    checking page or mentioned on the automated phone system. If you do, you
    do so at your own risk.
