How does one go about sending a letter to the ISP director, regarding delayed FOID wait time? Is it a pen and paper type thing, or should it be typed? What info needs to be given? I pretty much need the basics. Thanks.

 

Typed or handwritten is fine - see attached word doc below:

 

Sec. 10. Appeal to director; hearing; relief from firearm prohibitions.

  1. Whenever an application for a Firearm Owner's Identification Card is denied, whenever the Department fails to act on an application within 30 days of its receipt, or whenever such a Card is revoked or seized as provided for in Section 8 of this Act, the aggrieved party may appeal to the Director of State Police for a hearing upon such denial, revocation or seizure, 

You will need to send a letter to the director and request a hearing on why your FOID was not issued within the 30 day time frame (60 business days for a renewal) prescribed by law. In the letter, give your full legal name, date of birth, FOID number or application number, and the date you submitted the application for your FOID card.

What usually happens is once the director sees there is no reason to delay the FOID card, they simply process and issue.

If, on the rare occasion you are granted a hearing, it is usually a meeting with an administrative judge appointed by the ISP, you may be able to do that as a teleconference or may need to travel to Springfield. You can have an attorney with you, if you think you need one.

Send this all via a mail service that will provide you with a signed receipt of delivery to:

Director Brendan Kelly

Illinois State Police

801 S. 7th Street

Springfield, IL 62703

Renewed: 11/27/20 for 02/01/21 expiration

 

Went active: unknown(stopped checking)

 

Issued: 9/7/21

 

Received: 9/15/21

 

Total wait time: 292 days

 

Only positive is my renewal date is now 8/26/31 so received an extra 6 months and 25 days from my previous renewal date. Hopefully, with any luck this will be my last FOID card ever. ED Sullivan seems to think a current ISRA case pending in the courts will abolish the FOID. Time will tell on that one.

Applied 3 months ago was under review, took your advise and sent in a letter asking for a hearing, got approved in 3 days which is today. Made an account just to say thank you! @Molly B.

That’s a very familiar story.  I don’t think there is anyone who understands all the intricacies of the ISP cobweb of incompetence like Molly B.   She has helped a LOT of people here and asks nothing for herself.  
 

One way people can help is to become supporting members here to allow Molly to continue to do her important work.

Is there some place I can donate to her?

My FOID expired 8/1/21 and, with some help from Molly (Thanks Molly!!), I was able to complete the process of setting up my account/ID with the FSB and renewing my card tonight.

Now the "fun" begins.

Anybody care to make a wager on how long it takes for this card to become active?  Or to be in my hands?

In the mail for delivery today (11/19).

Awesome results- Congrats! For a renewal, this might make some sense. For the month of October, 2021, the average renewal time was at (an astounding) 39 (38.91) days. This could have been because the ISP selected more recent applications to process, or (hopefully) the ISP is though the FOID renewal backlog and we are returning back to a new normal. Here is the history of the processing statistics:
