What is involved with getting the Unique Personal Identification number (UPIN) for the 4473 form? How does this work? As I discussed in an earlier forum, I've been thru the Federal instant check system many dozens of times and there is absolutely no consistency in this system with me. Sometimes it's instant, next time it's a day, next time three days, next time one hour, next time no call back, next time instant. I've tried with and without the Social Security number, using middle initial, spelling out middle name, nothing changes. It stays consistently inconsistent. I've considered getting the UPIN to hopefully speed things up but what is the downside to using the UPIN?
