Why, rumor is they have more than 300,000 applications to process and not enough staff to keep up with the volume

Is that 300k rumor based on the CCL renewals and new CCL applications in queue? Do we know how long it takes to actually process a renewal/application once it gets pulled from the input pile and started processing?

 

 

 

CCL and FOID renewals.  No, don't know how long it takes to process, sorry.

Applied     03/23/2019 with prints

Approved 07/01/2019

Active       07/03/2019

 

Total time : 103 days + ~3 days in the mail = 106 days in hand

 

16 days past the maximum of 90 days the state has to legally accept it, gotta love it.

I feel like I’ve noticed a trend, if you apply with prints it takes about 4 months if you apply without prints it takes about 5 months.
I applied 4-15-19 with prints so I guess I shouldn’t expect anything until about mid August.

Today I found a post on the Illinois CCL reddit thread with this phone number: ‭(217) 557-8801. It's supposed to be a back door phone line to the Illinois State Police. The operator said that they were about 10 days behind in processing at this point (seems accurate based on what folks are saying here and on reddit). You can add your name to a call back list and maybe get more information about where your application is in the process. A few folks seem to think that their application was sped up after calling the number; hard to separate from coincidence but might be worth a try. I'm at day 126 right now and leaving town for vacation soon. Was hoping that have the card in hand before we left, but I'm guessing that's not going to happen.

Within hours of calling the phone number my status changed to "QC Verified."

I submitted 3/30. Original app had fingerprints attached, so I did not do that again this time. Coming up on 100 days and still...under...review....inspect element shows this: 

 

<span class="SUBMITTED">Under Review</span>

 

Take your time isp so long as i'm legal...

Day 127, morning after calling the "secret" phone number status changed to "Approved." Hope the card is printed and sent before I leave on vacation. Not enough data points to prove that calling the ISP sped things up, but might be worth considering if you're frustrated with your application.

Do you have yours in hand yet?  I was active 7-3 also but nothing in mail as of today.

My time line,
September 9, 2018 received FOID renewal letter from State Police and forget all about it
December 1, 2018 current card expired
December 27, 2018 applied for new card
~February 1, 2019 received new FOID card
February 12, 2019 late evening CCL application
~June 14, 2019 contacted state rep which was ~day 122
June 18 2019 went from applied to approved on “inspect element” but not on front page
July 3, 2019 showed active on “inspect element but not on from page
July 10, 2019 in my hand and shows active on front page
Appears to be about 147-148 days start to finish.

The CCL instructor that I had, encouraged everyone to take it one step at a time and don’t overlap applications because he said it would slow things down.

Board review is not usually a good thing. Cook County perhaps? Any contact whatsoever with them? Its not just about convictions. Any court orders? Maybe an LE objection which you should get a notice on

Just so you have a data point, I applied 3/4/19 without prints and had license in mail today. Hope you get a fair shake from your local LE.
