Can I apply for a FOID Card if I am not 21 years of age?

 

Yes, a minor can apply for a FOID card with a parent or legal guardian sponsor. The parent or legal guardian must be eligible for a FOID card. The parent or legal guardian must also sign an affidavit and attach it to the application

Hi, I JUST applied for my daughter (age 7). She does not currently have a state ID. This is a better deal as you pay $10 for a 10 year ID vs $10 for a 5 year state ID. Not to mention all the benefits of having the FOID. I believe if the minor currently has a state ID you can do it over the web access portal. Otherwise you have to call the ISP number and do the application over the phone for a minor. The number is: 217-782-7980. Once you speak with an agent, they will take the necessary information and then mail you two separate items. One will be the FOID application which will have a spot for his mother (as the sponsor) to sign as well as the applicant. If the applicant cannot sign, you will need to send a birth certificate, I believe. The second form is a minor affidavit form. His mother (as the sponsor) will need to sign this and have it notarized. They will take the payment initially over the phone as well. If you do not have a state ID, you will need to include a picture to use as well. I used a passport photo for my daughter which was taken at Walgreens.

Once complete, send them back to the address on the envelope and wait....that's the part I am at so I can't give you my experience on time to completion, but should be the 30 day window...should be.... I literally dropped it in the mail this morning so I'm hoping to have it in a month.

Hope that helps!

Edit: clarified that his mother is the sponsor and not you.

 

So basically if you have a license they should have that information on file and you can use that for your picture (though you'll still have to send something in I believe). Since you're a minor, you do have to call. You may need to have your parent/guardian call...not sure. When you do call, eventually you'll get on hold (not that extremely busy line where it disconnects you) and then you'll get a person. Follow the advice above and you're good to go. Complete application over phone, sign what they send, mail it back and you'll be set.
