Get Consumer Application Form (Consumer Flow)

Description

This API is to assist consumers with retrieving an existing application form to view in a Consumer Portal. For programmatic access or to view applications in the Partner Portal, see Get Latest Application Form.

The endpoint returns an application form ID and a one-time-use redirect_url to continue the application in your Consumer Portal.

Prerequisites

Consumers are authenticated as guest users. Because of this, they must supply the following pieces of information to retrieve a previously started application:

  • Reference ID of the application form (XXX-XXX-XXX)
  • Zip code supplied in the application form
  • Last name supplied in the application form
