The U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) has expanded its myProgress feature, formerly known as personalized processing times, to include Form I-821 (Application for Temporary Protected Status) and Form I-485 (Application to Register Permanent Residence or Adjust Status). Initially, myProgress will be available for family-based or Afghan special immigrant I-485 applicants.
What is myProgress ?
myProgress offers applicants personalized estimates of wait times for key milestones and actions in their case, through their online accounts. These estimates, based on case type and historical data, do not guarantee timing and cannot account for all unique application processing factors.
The expansion of myProgress aligns with USCIS’ commitment to improving customer experience, addressing applicant concerns about the status of their benefit requests, and supporting the goals outlined in Executive Order 14058 on Transforming Federal Customer Experience.
The effort is part of USCIS’ Strategic Plan to enhance the overall experience for individuals it serves, and the expansion of myProgress is expected to increase transparency in the adjudication process.
All myProgress available forms
The myProgress feature is also available for other forms, including I-765, I-131, N-400, I-90, and I-130, for applicants with a USCIS online account. To access myProgress, applicants must create or log into their online account, where they can view personalized wait times for milestones such as application receipt confirmation, movement through processing steps, and final case decision.
While myProgress provides valuable information, applicants are still advised to check the public Check Case Processing Times webpage for eligibility to file an “Outside of Normal Processing Times” service request.
