Default USA passport renewal timeline

State Department website is saying 10-12 weeks for routine(non-rush) service.

I sent ds-82 passport renewal form on 3-23 for both a new passport and passport card with post office 2-3 day trackable service.
Tracking shows arrived in Greenwood IN on 3-26
Check cashed on 4-6
Approval email on 4-8
I'll update when I receive them.
Funny thing, I mailed it to Irving TX. That's the address it shows on the form for people living in Texas to mail it too.

Wife is currently waiting on hers since 3/3. We used the Post Office service though since this is her first passport (at 44 - yes you read that right)

I filled out the form to renew earlier today. This text from the site may explain the Greenwood v. Irving point if the mail facility is in Greenwood?

"
It may take up to 4 weeks from the day you apply until your application status is “In Process.” During these 4 weeks, your application is delivered to a mail facility, your payment is processed, and your application is scanned and sent to us."
On a related issue I was disappointed that we still have to deal with 'hard copy' photographs. They have a site to upload a photo to, but all it does is auto crop, allow manual cropping, then sends it back to your computer for you to print and staple (!) to the form. Would it be too much for them to accept an upload of the digital version?

My parents were around 45 when they got their first passport, so they could come and see me in Canada for my first wedding in 2005. Neither renewed when theirs expired in 2015, as far as I know that trip to Canada was the one and only time my mom used her passport.

Update

Passport received today. Passport was printed on 4-7-21 so valid until 4-6-31. It was printed at the western passport agency in Tucson AZ. The passport page's artwork didn't change from the last one. Good to go for another decade!

Passport came by overnight mail and I got a new passport card in the regular mail. Card is valid for the exact same dates. It came from Houston. Haven't received the old passport/card yet. The process took 1 day less than 3 weeks from mailing to receiving.

Hopefully you will get your old one back, last time I renewed they lost my old one and I never got it back.
