  • OPT Application Pending for more than 90 days - Security Holds

    Hello ,
    Firstly I would like to thank you guys for creating this forum .I have been following DesiOPT from the time I entered states.I filed my post OPT on June 9th 2014 and it was sent to Vermont Service Center ,its been more than 90 days and yet my application is still under initial review .Yesterday I raised a expedite request and got an email saying "Your request for expeditious processing of your Application for Employment Authorization (Form I-765) is denied

    We have placed your case on a processing hold because the required security checks remain pending. Until we receive the results of these security checks, we cannot move forward on your case. We require the results of security checks before we make a decision on any pending case.

    We cannot predict when we will receive the results of these security checks. Please be assured that we will make every effort to make a decision in your case as soon as the security checks are complete."

    I am afraid since I have job starting from Sep 22nd and I have never heard of this security check ? Did anyone experience this kind of status .Any help and inputs would be greatly appreciated.
