Lenders who will participate in electronic reporting for Farm Service Agency
(FSA ) Guaranteed Loans must do the following:
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 beaddressed.
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 ID.
Once the identity proofing has been completed, your ID will be activated and you can submit completed forms via USDA’s 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 FSA’s 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 ….

Then you can log-on to the Guaranteed Loan System - Level 2 (GLSLVL2) web site located at https://usdalinc.sc.egov.usda.govto 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.
