FOID Paper Applications Stopped
Tue, 10 Mar 2015 10:01:45 CDT
Illinois State Police have announced that the agency will no longer accept FOID paper applications as of March 9, 2015.
The ISP is merging the FOID and Concealed Carry License application processes to provide a more streamlined and modernized application process. ISP will begin accepting on-line FOID applications beginning March 16, 2015, through the Department's website or through the paper alternative call center method for those individuals who do not have computer access. Minors under the age of 21 without a state of Illinois Driver's License or Identification card and Amish applicants will be required to complete an alternative call-in paper application.
The ISP has also made changes to the login for both the CCL and FOID applications. Applicants will no longer be required to obtain a state of Illinois digital I.D. through the Department of Central Management Services. This login change will allow users greater accessibility to the new application process. All new applicants and returning CCL applicants will need to register with the Illinois State Police by providing some key identifiers found on their Illinois Driver's License or identification card, creating a username and password, and answering four security questions. The CCL website will be unavailable beginning Friday, March 13, 2015, at 5:00pm until Monday, March16, 2015, at 7:00am in order to implement the new FOID system.
