FOID App Address Question


Recommended Posts

I have a friend that has that same situation. He tried to order some ammo from an on-line company. He ended up having to place the order over the phone since his FOID address wasn't an exact match to his DL. He got the ammo, he just had to have a person involved rather than the computer.

Ah ok. Yet he was still able to get approved for his FOID, even with the subtle difference? That's what matters to me.

I just submitted two different FOID applications and put the Unit # in both ways: (A) one within Address Line 1, and the other (B) as part of the separate Apt input cell that the ISP website offers. The former results in the usual USPS format when processed, and the latter processes as Random St. #00. Both got approved.

 

I don't think it matters- but if I had to lean one way or the other, I would recommend (A), putting the Apt/Unit # on the same line as Address Line 1. This is because during the CCL application, the system does a check against the Illinois SOS address you have on file, and it tends to match better when it follows the USPS format that your Drivers License or ID will be using. When I first tried my CCL application using (B) above, the ISP website said my address did not match the one they had on file for me (i.e. the USPS-formatted one). But switching my profile to use option (A) allowed it to match immediately within the system and avoided any headache with the rest of my CCL application. It will also help avoid future issues with not matching with your DL/ID (e.g., ordering ammo online).

 

To clarify:

 

Option (A) - My recommendation - "Random St. Unit 00, City, IL" by manually entering the unit as part of Address Line 1

Option (B) - Not recommended - "Random St. #00, City, IL" using the ISP Website's separate cell input for Unit

So I would have to do an address change on my FOID?
