Grab a good Dr. Seuss book and read a little.
Follow a few of the forums already here with great information.
And lastly for a remedy, lower your expectations cause the People’s Republic of Illinois has!

My wife's application is the same day.  ISPFSB lists a FOID number on her page but is still "Under Review".  I constantly see other applications after hers (and yours) being approved, so it makes me think someone took the apps from that week home to work on and lost them  :blink:

Thanks for the info, acsewalk.  I've sent the ISP foid contact link messages about 3 times, but I'm sure nobody is responding to those.

 

Make me feel great to see others who have applied more recently have gotten theirs instead.  lol.  Glad your wife got hers, max.

In the same boat and tried everything- Representatives and Senators office, ISP Directly, even Molly tried reaching out for me.  
Applied for new FOID and CCL (Same time) June 27th, 2020 and still under review.  Maybe they don't like that I check-in every day and have had multiple sources submit inquiries for me...lol

You may have stumbled upon something there.
Maybe they are so busy replying to inquiries...........

Ah ha ha ha ha ha who am I kidding, they don’t reply to anyone. Just thought I’d bring a little levity to an otherwise sad system!

Nope  3/21/21 

My friend called 2 Sundays ago said his wife was applying- some instructor was doing it for her and I think she started the concealed carry class

He was asking me if I had any firearms for sale, I said check back when she has FOID in hand, well that was today

Guess I'll blow the dust off the shield EZ

Pester the sh*t out of them. I would call roughly once a month or whenever I felt especially ornery. Towards the end of my wait I was calling about every other week. I find it best to call as close to when the open at 8:30 am as possible.

Got this email a few days ago from ISRA.

 

Dear ISRA Members,

Our attorney, who is representing us in the Motion to Dismiss in the Luce v. Kelly CCL application case, is requesting your response.  We are looking for anyone that has been waiting more than 90 days for a CCL (120 days if they did not submit fingerprints).  Please email our attorney  at dsigale@sigalelaw.com by Monday June 21, 2021.

 

They did not leave a phone number on the email.


Void the FOID!

A coworker of mine had payment taken for his FOID 1-12-21 and is still waiting.  He said when he logs in, it always tells him "two more weeks".  Any suggestions to speed things up?

 

Thanks for any advice.

I asked him what he was seeing when he logged in.  It looks like he is "unable to log in at this time"  He tried resetting the password and is having no luck.  The "two weeks" I believe is the generic "System Alert!" message that says you should wait two weeks after "active" before contacting FSB.

 

I suggested he call and try to get through to someone to help him get logged in.

Try registering with a new account instead. Ive read that can reset and blend the account back letting one get back in.
