Does anyone know how much in advance you can start the process to renew before it expires? Thanks.

If I remember correctly I believe that the RENEW icon appears on your page on the ISP website 90 days prior to your expiration.

What The King said.  I'm in process of my FOID renewal and the renewal button appeared 90 days ahead of expiration.

Having trouble renewing FOID. Logged in as new user since last time was 2015.

Screen shows correct email address, yet states email has been taken.

Tried to enter "forgot password" and now will not let me go further.

Am I missing something or do I have to contact via phone as they claim?

If you made a new account you will need a new e-mail account as the old one is being used!
It’s taken due to you using it already

Create a new e-mail with a web based service, they are almost all free.
Then get the info you need

You might even have to start from scratch.........IANAL

I seem to recall a prior post on the new account subject that suggested there was a screen where you could change back to the original email address.

An elderly friend (without computer or email account) needed to correct his FOID address. He was advised by a gun shop to wait because his FOID card was needing to be renewed in a month. So he waited and renewed in the middle of July, with his new address and still hasn't received his card.

What is the current waiting time for renewed cards?

Thanks.

If he doesn’t have e-mail or computer how does he renew?

Did he somehow call the ISP and get forms sent out?

He had it renewed at the local gun shop.

Then I’d go back there and see what’s up.
They would have needed to set him up an account and sent it in.

Check back with them as it sounds like a click didn’t take or another issues popped up and they just ignored it!

Renewal FOIDS have 60 business days for processing. If submitted before expiration, card remains active. IMO, needs to get to a computer, log in to FOID portal and check on fee receipt and card status.

If you note in my first post, he needed to correct his address due to his FOID card and his state ID having different addresses listed. He had purchased an M1 Garand with my help before I became aware of the conflicting addresses. A different gun shop would not complete the transfer due to the conflicting addresses and said we'd have to correct this before they'd approve the transfer of the rifle. Then ... before we got this cleared up ... he made a silent bid on a rifle at a NRA function and ended up as the winning bid ... further jamming himself up.
 

The gun shop has said that they've seen renewals take 70 to 90 days to arrive due to under staffing, etc. and that they would look into the current status of the renewal application should we request such. This would require me to drive some distance to his residence to achieve this, so again I'm asking ....

 

What are the current wait times for renewals to arrive?

Renewals according to most all posts on this web site state 60 to as high as 90 days

There is no clear and precise answer, ymmv

Thanks, Bubbacs!  And I realize that at best, i's a guessing game (ymmv).

I just hope that it's not because of he has a state ID and not a drivers license. He's broken no laws, he just doesn't drive anymore.

How can the state justify a driver license as a requirement to exercise the Second Amendment?

Looking at your post count now you already know the next text Ill type! lol

Your best bet is to PM MollyB with ALL the information you can
She will be the only one with a direct contact to ISP

This would be best as we, the posters herein really can only pass along information we have

Give MollyB a shout, she has been known to work miracles.

Damn sleep check

Yes, I do know MollyB's capabilities and I also have her number saved in my phone. We've met many times over the years, as I used to be much more active in the gun rights movement before the accident that left me handicapped. But I also know how busy she is and I feel that her time and attention is not necessary at this point. At best, this will work itself out very shortly, as the wait time is at the maximum expected. At worst, things may go south and it will indeed require MollyB's knowledge and expertise. Only time will tell.

But thanks again, Bubbacs. I know you're trying to help as much as possible.

It's funny (not really, long wait) you should post this. My elderly friend and I went back to the gun shop where he renewed. It turns out it's only been not quite sixty days instead of the ninety he ad told me. He had said it was mid July and the shop said it was Sept 2 when the application went in. And the ISP website says it's still under review.

 

One never knows what these eighty some year old men are up to with these FOID cards.

I was up for CCW renewal early in the year. Took 111 days to go active in the portal. Barely 3 months later I moved...
Took about a month to get the FOID change of address, I’m assuming I’ll get the new CCW permit around Christmas.
