Hi everybody!!!

My husband and I sent my package for my AOS last friday (January 21st). Since we sent it as certified mail, we were able to know when USCIS received it (they did on Monday, January 24th). Today (January 27th) I received in my email the Acceptance Confirmation saying the following:

Your USCIS application/petition has been received and routed to the National Benefits Center for processing. Within 7-10 days by standard mail you will receive your official Receipt Notice (Form I-797)

About my case: My I-94 expired on January 27th (today). My husband got laid off December 1st and he did a household contract with his brother who is my co-sponsor now. I applied for EAD. I wasn't able to write down a SSN because I'm still waiting to hear from the Social Security office to know if they will give me a number yet or not.

Other than that, there's nothing strange in my case.

Is it normal that they routed it to the National Benefits Center? Any of you have had their case routed there? Will it take longer? Something to worry about?

Thank you in advance and God bless! :)

ALL of the AOS is sent to NBC. It is mostly processed at NBC, then sent to your local ASC for interview or sent to CSC for " faster processing " and generally no interview.
