|does not take a long time (as previously posted by some).|
Last year, I put in for it approx. 3 days prior to expiration. Got it on time. See my previous post Msg #628435.
This year, I took the recertification test Monday night (1/10th) after my last signing; received the BGC link Tuesday (1/11th), filled it out and sent. Received my BGC today (1/12th) at 12:04pm. Right on time. My 2021 BGC expires today. <whew>
I know, I know. Cutting it real close. So far, it's worked out and so far, I've not lost any days on the expiring BGC. Besides, if it didn't work out this year, my granddaughter & hubby and my great grandson are visiting from Texas to celebrate my upcoming birthday. I would've been able to spend more time with them.
