  1. My FOID and CCL were renewed before the pandemic hit so I didn't get caught up in all the delays renewing or new app processing. I read additional time was granted for renewals, keeping expired permits valid during the process. Looking at the ISP portal I see my expiration dates show "COVID19". Once all the dust settles on the pandemic will I benefit from these pandemic grace periods / extensions by extending my expiration dates? Maybe the pandemic extensions will have no effect on anyone's expiration dates ... just curious ...


    Got my new FOID yesterday. It is good for 10 years. Guess I got around the fix the FOID limit of 5 years. Sent from my SM-G975U using Tapatalk

    Did you get a letter from the ISP to renew your FOID? Or did you check on the website? Mine is coming up fro renewal soon.



    My FOID came do a month ago. No letter. I have my FOID and CCL renewal on my calendar. Oh yeah, no renewal letter for my CCL either.

  3. Yes, if you apply for renewal of your FOID prior to it's expiration date, and you are not subject to revocation. So, it remains valid, your FCCL is also valid. The law:


    ( b. Renewal applications shall be approved or denied within 60 business days, provided the applicant submitted his or her renewal application prior to the expiration of his or her Firearm Owner's Identification Card. If a renewal application has been submitted prior to the expiration date of the applicant's Firearm Owner's Identification Card, the Firearm Owner's Identification Card shall remain valid while the Department processes the application, unless the person is subject to or becomes subject to revocation under this Act. The cost for a renewal application shall be $10 which shall be deposited into the State Police Firearm Services Fund.

    Thanks for the update! (Should have researched myself before posting ...)



    What happens if you apply to renew before your expiration date and they don't get you processed before your expiration date? Can they pull your FCCL? Sent from my SM-G955U using Tapatalk


    Your CCL remains valid after the printed expiration date if you applied for renewal before that date.


    I think he was talking about your FOID. If your FOID expires while you are waiting for the FOID to be renewed. Would your CCL be pulled for not having an active FOID. My first thought would be yes they would pull your CCL since you have no active FOID.



    As I understand, if your FOID expired, your CCL is now invalid, and you are now a criminal if you possess firearms. So my questions is, does your FOID remain valid past the expiration date if you've renewed and are eligible? I'll have to do some looking....

  5. FWIW on the 2014 CCL the number they used for the CCL was our FOID number with 14 in front of our number as our concealed carry permit number. Soooooooo following this thinking if push came to shove before this is corrected you might suggest this to an officer.


    My CCL and FOID numbers are as Blackcat writes. This post made me curious, so I logged into the new ISP site and both my FOID and CCL (with the different numbers) show active.
