Navigating through your MSB registration form

Notification messages, details, and definitions

As you complete your form, you may encounter indicators that provide you with additional information.

Figure 6 gives examples of three type of indicators that provide additional information in the MSB registration system, such as the notification messages, the Show more bullets, and the dotted underlined words. Each type of indicator is described in the text that follows.
