I noticed that my FOID card was missing today.  I looked all over and couldn't find it.  Can't remember where I used it or had it out last.

 

Now what?  How does that affect my CCL?  Anything to worry about?  How long / how difficult is obtaining a replacement?

 

Thanks for any help.

If you still have your valid CCL, you shouldn't be affected at all unless you shop somewhere that requires a FOID and won't accept your CCL.

 

I think that you are safe to report the FOID lost (stolen) at your leisure. If it was close to expiration, renew it. It shouldn't affect your CCL at all... same numbers and all. If you aren't close to a renewal... maybe give it a little while so you can find it, see if it turns up. Maybe report it lost right away.

 

If I am wrong, I'm sure someone will be along shortly to provide better guidance.

With the change in the law, you don't have to have physical possession of the FOID as long as you have the CCL, so many leave them at home in the safe or whatever.

I'd do some more checking, to make absolutely sure that you can't locate it, before you start down the path of replacing it. Someone else may be along with recent experience of what will happen if you report the FOID lost.

Out of curiosity how far away is your FOID renewal date?

At one time, I think that reporting FOID as lost or stolen got the CCL revoked, and after a couple month wait for the FOID replacement, you could start the couple year appeal process to get the CCL reinstated. Hopefully it's not that bad anymore.

Illinois' FCCA is a prime example of the maxim that sufficiently advanced incompetence is indistinguishable from malice.

It is valid till 2025...  not even close to renewal.

If you report it lost, stolen, damaged, unless something has changed in the last few months, ISP will revoke the FOID card until a new one is issued. Has caused some  complications in some cases.  Keep looking, it's better to find the missing card.

 He cannot carry on a revoked or expired FOID as well. Is that your understanding as well Molly B?

Thanks Molly..............  I am inspired to put my FOID in the gun safe.  Of course, I will continue to carry my CCL on my person.
