Department of Elder Affairs Clearinghouse web Portal and generate a level 2

Your fingerprints and photo are captured by the technician at the fingerprinting
Kiosk and sent to the Florida Department of Law Enforcement (FDLE). The FDLE
then sends the fingerprints to the FBI for processing. The
results are then disseminated back to the Department of Elder Affairs
You will receive an email providing you with a Transaction Control Number (TCN)
that verifies your live scan submission has been processed. The TCN number can
be given to the company that is requesting the background check as it will help
them track results. Once the results are received from FDLE, the average
processing time for clearance is approximately 3-5 business days.
IMPORTANT: Please save your TCN number for reference.
