Title: E-Government

  • Conduct business online! With a level 2 account
    access you can have 1-stop access to a variety of
    FSA inquiries, including USDA-LINC for lenders.
    Want to know more? Read on.

eAuthentication Advantages to Lenders
  • Faster Service- Documents and forms are submitted
    in real-time. Save mailing time, paper
    generation, and faster turnaround.
  • Access to FSAs Paperless Systems- Loan Status
    Reporting, Loan applications and closing
    documents, Access to borrowers account
    Information, Loss Claim Submission (coming soon),
    and Interest Assistance Renewals (coming soon).
    By using these systems, Lenders will have instant
    access to their borrowers account information
    according to FSA records.
  • Electronically sign documents- By using your USDA
    eAuthentication account, you can digitally sign
    documents so you dont have to sign originals.
  • Flexibility- No software to buy or install. You
    can submit documents and images in any of the
    following formats Microsoft Word, Microsoft
    Excel, Adobe Acrobat PDF documents and images,
    Web Equity Manager exported ZIP files, Images,
    and Text.
  • Secure and Private- eFiling uses 128 bit secure
    socket layer (SSL) encryption technology used by
    many commercial banks in on-line banking
  • We Do Not Use lender employees Social Security
    Numbers. You should change your password on a
    regular basis.

Obtaining Access for Electronic Data Submission
  • Lenders who will participate in electronic
    reporting for Farm Service Agency
  • (FSA ) Guaranteed Loans must do the following
  • Recertify using the revised FSA 2201 Lenders
    Agreement which includes the terms and conditions
    for lender participation in electronic data
  • Ensure that all lender employees who need access
    to electronic reporting obtain a Level 2
    eAuthentication ID and password at this time.
  • Designate an employee as a Security Administrator
    who will act as a point of contact to FSA. A
    lender can choose to designate additional
    Security Administrators to act as a backup. A
    Security Administrator will delegate and assist
    in maintaining the access for the other lender
    employees and will have access to all FSA loan
    information for all branches of the lender.
  • At this time, we are encouraging lenders to
    complete the above three items. The following
    pages provide additional information on
    eAuthentication and Electronic Data Submission.
    Any user who already has a Level 2
    eAuthentication account does not need to
    self-register again.

Click Hyperlink
Enter requested info and click Continue. On the
next page, verify that all info is correct and
click Submit. Even though you are representing
the Lender, you are creating an eAuthentication
account as an individual. Your name and home
address must match what is on your state issued
drivers license or id, US passport or US military
ID card. The alternate phone number field may be
used to enter your work phone number. We prefer
that you enter a work email address, because this
is where all electronic notifications and
reminders will be addressed.

Last Step
  • You must visit a local USDA Service Center in
    person for identity proofing. Please have your
    government issued photo ID (e.g. State issued
    drivers license, State issued ID, US Passport or
    US Military ID) with you when you visit the USDA
    Service Center.
  • Note Your first name and last name as submitted
    with your eAuthentication registration must
    exactly match your first name and last name as
    printed on your government issued photo ID that
    you present at the Service Center. Your address,
    also, needs to match the address on your photo
  • Once the identity proofing has been completed,
    your ID will be activated and you can submit
    completed forms via USDAs eForms web site. An
    online reporting system that will give lender
    employees the ability to input semi-annual
    status reports, default status reports, and
    closing reports into FSAs database is projected
    to be ready for use in the near future. FSA will
    let you know when the online reporting system is
    ready for use and what you will need to do to
    gain access to that system using your Level 2
    eAuthentication ID. Now for the next step USDA
    LINC .

Lenders Security Administrator access to the
USDA LINC Site (Summary)
  • The person designated by the lender as the
    lenders Security Administrator must obtain a
    Level 2 eAuthentication ID and account if that
    person does not already have an ID and account
    established. Also, all other lender employees
    who will need access to electronic reporting must
    obtain Level 2 eAuthentication IDs and accounts.
  • Ensure your lending institution has recertified
    with the revised FSA-2201 Lenders Agreement.
  • Your local FSA Service Center should report the
    name of the lenders designated Security
    Administrator (SA) to the Farm Loan Program
    Section in the State Office. The State Office
    will add the designated SA to the Application
    Authorization Security Management (AASM) system,
    which gives the SA access to FSAs electronic
    reporting systems.
  • The Lender Security Administrator will receive an
    email notification after FSA adds him/her to the
    AASM system. The email includes the USDA LINC
    website address. (See sample email language
  • You have been authorized as a Security
    Administrator in Guaranteed Loan System - Level 2
    (GLSLVL2). Your Guaranteed Loan System - Level 2
    (GLSLVL2) users should go to the following
    eAuthentication web site to self-register for
    level 2 security to obtain an ID and password
  • Then you can log-on to the Guaranteed Loan
    System - Level 2 (GLSLVL2) web site located at
    https//usdalinc.sc.egov.usda.gov to delegate
    access to the Guaranteed Loan System - Level 2
    (GLSLVL2) for all of your users.
  • Note Any user who already has a level 2
    eAuthentication account does not need to
    self-register again. The Security Administrator
    should delegate access using the existing level 2
    eAuthentication ID for other lender users.

  • Ensure you have all other training materials to
    input status reports into USDA-LINC. They are
    available in PowerPoint format at
    www.fsa.usda.gov/ks or you may contact FSA Kansas
    State Office in Manhattan 785-564-4765 or email
    shelly.wolf_at_ks.usda.gov for additional guidance.
  • To submit loan packages online, youll login with
    your level 2 eauth user ID at http//forms.sc.egov
