Next Steps to getting your LTC
Once you start your LTC application, you have one year to submit your documentation. You will need to submit fingerprints, but you cannot get that scheduled until AFTER you have started your LTC application, Regardless of whether you “have fingerprints on file,” you will be required to schedule a fingerprint appointment for your LTC. DPS will send you a link for scheduling AFTER you submit your application. You must have this done within one year of submitting your LTC application.
