I went to the ISP website to renew my FOID card.  It asks different  questions about information that is on the card  and most is already filled in.  I get to date of birth and can only enter month and day and not year.   A message pops up saying please enter a value equal to or greater than 1900-01-01. I keep trying to enter my birth year but it won't let me.

 

BTW I am not over 121 years old!

Plot twist: the ISP software has misinterpreted the age limit of 21 to be 121 and now requires firearm owners to be at least 121.

Does it want/accept your birth date in ISO format, YYYY-MM-DD ? Fortunately, I have a few years to go before I have to wrestle with the quirks of renewal.

It won't take it in YYYY-MM-DD format  or the year in MM-DD-YYYY format. It allows me to fill in MM-DD and no year.

I tried that and it does not work.  Everything on the first page - returning Applicants and the sign in box works and my birthdate is correct.

 

On the next page (User Registration)  everything is filled except the birth date.

Are you using a phone or PC/Laptop? If on a phone, did you try touching the actual year and scrolling to your birth year?

That gives me confidence concluding that you'll have to wait until you're at least 121 years old or until IL repeals the FOID, whichever comes first.

... or try a different browser on a different computer, which is a pain.

Using a laptop    It doesn't give me the option of scrolling to a birth year.  It shows a box with the year 2021 and a calender for July or a box with the year 1900.

Chrome ,  Windows 10 , computer is Dell Ispiron  15 3000     Maybe someone can tell me in a PM how to get a paper application.  The ISP website has to be one of the worst around.

I had this problem on my iPad one time and when I moved upstairs to use the desktop it was fine. I’m thinking it’s a phone laptop/tablet thing. Yes I know they said they fixed that a while back.
I’d ask a friend to use a desktop if you don’t have one available to you. Library maybe?

As for the paper app. I don’t think they have those anymore.

101abn,  there isn't a calendar to scroll thru for the year.   I don't know how to do a screen shot and crop out info.  I'm not that computer literate.   Maybe i can get someone to do it for me.  Where are those teenage grand kids when you need them?

The old order Amish don't have computers, but some have guns.  Why discriminate against someone because they have a religious stand against computers?   I live in the jungle and don't have a library card unless I pay $35 or $40 a year no free library card for me.

I just did a renewal for someone, when I entered the birth date a calendar popped up showing the year and date to click on . . . do you pop ups turned off?
