Florida Department of Financial Services License Applicants Cautioned on Possible Fingerprint Processing Delay

Apr 22, 2010


The Florida Department of Financial Services (“DFS”) has been notified that the Federal Bureau of Investigation (“FBI”), which is responsible for processing all fingerprint information for federal background checks, will not be available to process any license applicant fingerprints from April 28, 2010 through May 3, 2010.  This is due to a U.S. Census Bureau project that requires immediate attention.  The delay may create a three-week backlog once the FBI resumes normal fingerprint processing on May 4, 2010.

Applicants who are required to provide a set of fingerprints may be affected by this delay.  The DFS recommendeds that these applicants submit their fingerprints before this time to avoid a delay in receiving their license.
