Good morning, I’m another one who hasn’t received a replacement physical card yet. My current card expires this coming Monday, August 1. Online it says my card expires in September 2024. haven’t found a way to talk to a human at the FSB phone number. I’m only receiving canned responses from the email address. 
 

A few sites have the image of the current card stored under my profile so I can order ammo. I imagine I won’t be able to do that after Monday. Any image I generate from the FSB site would only be valid for one day it seems and it takes longer than that to get the document approved on these sites. 



With the Sept. 2024 expiration date, the card has been renewed and you should receive a new FOID/CCL combo card but it's hard to tell when that will happen.  Will the sites will accept your CCL for purchases?

If you want to send me a private message with your full legal name, date of birth, FOID number and address, I can submit an inquiry for you.

I still have an original combined cards that has the wrong ccl verbiage in the corner and specifically states that it does not authorize concealed carry...  Are they going to be replacing these eventually?  It's been over 6 months...

 

I have the same issue.  However, mine does correctly have the CCL indicator at the top.  Since my CCL does not expire for a few more years, I wonder if they will send me a corrected combined card when I renew.

I was at the Illinois State Fair today and stopped by the ISP/FSB desk in the Illinois Building. I asked about my FOID originally expiring on September 1, but having been extended to my 2024 CCL expiration. I was told that my CCL will now act as my FOID as well and that I can download and save my E-FOID if I went to purchase a gun and they wanted a recent time-stamped version. When I renew my CCL in a couple of years, it'll be the new combo card. Maybe they'll have that figured out better by then.

specifically states that it does not authorize concealed carry.  that is if you DO NOT  have the CCL Indicator 

 

1. I know that, and you know that, but does the officer that pulls me over in another state know that? Because that's NOT what the card says.

 

2. It DOES NOT have the correct CCL indicator.

 

My ccl card is still valid so I've been carrying with that.

Im coming up on 60 days until my FOID expires. Have had it 50 years.

What am I required to do now? My ISP dash board says my FOID expiration is extended one year to coincide with my CCL.

Walking around with an expired card in the peoples republic of  Illinois does not give one a secure feeling. 

Could one go to an ISP Kiosk and get a new FOID ahead of time? Thanks

Theoretically ISP will send you a new, undated card, but until then your current FOID should be good. The general idea is that the date printed on the card is meaningless. FFLs and cops are supposed to check its validity online no matter if the printed date is future or past. Plus the CCL is still supposed to be good as a FOID, too.

 

The trickier thing is FFLs, particularly out-of-state ones for online ammo. Is there any chance you have an eFOID on your dashboard?

If you have a CCL, you do nothing.  It will automatically be renewed to expire same date as your CCL.

Thanks for the input.

Sooooo, I will get a new FOID in 12 months only when I renew my CCL?

If one doesn’t renew their CCL for any reason how do they get a renewed FOID?

Its not having a valid FOID that concerns me. One can function just fine without  a CCL, don’t carry. FOID is a whole other far more consequential issue.

When the expiration date of your FOID (and CCL) approaches, you can renew the FOID (and not the CCL), same as ever.

 

... hmm ...

Renew just the FOID (as early as possible). Get a CCL=NO physical card.

Then renew just the CCL (before it expires). Get a CCL=YES physical card.

It's not a trick everyone will be able to play. Also you probably shouldn't underestimate the confounding effect of ISP bureaucracy to screw it up.

There is an electronic FOID on my ISP site that has both licensees with no dates. Whats the reason for this, there is no print option, except for the entire screen shot.

The reason for the eCard is so that, eventually, no one will have a physical card. Technically, the plastic isn't the license. "License" is a legal concept that means "permission." The plastic is "proof of license." The government already knows everything about you. Relax in the warm embrace of the all-knowing state.

 

If your browser supports it (which is nearly all browsers), you can right-click the image and select "save as." (The front is a jpeg and the back is a png, although there's nothing much important on the back.) You can also do a screen shot, then crop it in your favorite image editor to just the card.

 

I doubt that the kiosks will get you a card faster, unless maybe you report yours "lost." You could try, of course.

I took my CCL renewal class in June. Then I waited until the day my CCL was expiring to do an online renewal. My wife asked why I waited until the last minute. I told her, I've been busy. LOL The look on her face was priceless. Why do today what you can put off until tomorrow? I did print out my ecard, so I got that going for me.

FOID was set to expire at the beginning of this month but was automatically extended until my CCL expiration in 2024; no new card received at that time. However, we recently changed our address and I submitted the change to ISP last Thursday, 9/15/2022.

 

New card received yesterday at our new address. Only 4-days?!

 

New FOID expiration is 9/15/2032 (not printed on the card) but CCL remains at the original 2024 date.

 

What's the long AL: # on the new card? It ends with 09152022, which was the "Renewal" / "Address Change" date.

 

The new card has my new DL photo.
