I applied online to renew my FOID on April 25th.  My FOID expires on July 1st.  When I login It shows 'Under Review". I, like others, have tried to call many, many times, but can not get a customer service person and then get disconnected.  I have also sent an email, but have not received a reply.  Should I be worried I have gotten lost in the system or is this normal?  If I do not receive my renewed FOID by July 1st can I still legally carry concealed?  Any suggestions?

I helped my mother apply 04 May 2018 and she received it on 07 June 2018. I know it's not a renewal but 34 days total isn't bad. She got it late Thursday night and she was shooting on Saturday morning at 9:30.

The ISP requested people renew early because they are expecting a boat load of renewals and lots of extra time to issue new cards.  I would not be worried as long as your status says under review.

Yes, you have to upload a picture.  It can be from a phone camera.  Must meet certain requirements.  I found the upload process easy and convenient.

Just an update.  Checked the status of my FOID renewal this morning.  It now shows "Active".  It took 51 days from when I renewed online until it showed "Active".  Now I have to see how it will take to receive it in the mail.

Well..I applied RENEWED...

I would think that regardless of what the status shows on the website that my current card is still 'valid' insomuch that its not 'invalid/revoked/denied' and I have a valid FCCL...
