  • get the most up-to-date case status information
  • get online updates for an application you submitted on paper
  • change your Sign-In Partner or switch to a GCKey

Not all applications can be linked.

  3. 3. Link your application to your account.
  4. 4. Get updates and messages about your application online.

How to link an application to your online account

To link an application:

  • Follow the steps to sign into your online account or create a new one
  • In your account, under “View the applications you submitted”, click on “Add (link) your application to your account to check your status”.
  • Enter the information exactly as you did you on your original application. If you made updates after you applied, enter the most recent information.

You can try to link an application 5 times. If it doesn’t work after 5 tries, you’ll be locked out for 24 hours.

After you link your application, you won’t receive paper letters about your application. We’ll send messages about your application to your account.

If you’re using a representative, they’ll lose access when you link the application to your account.

Find out how to change or cancel your representative.

Online applications: After we receive your application, it may take up to 5 days for you to see it in your account. We are working to make this wait time shorter. If your application does not appear after 5 days, contact us and report a technical problem. This issue will not delay processing of your application.
