Current wait time for FOID card in IL????

For any of you guys who have renewed or are getting one for the first time recently what has been your wait time? I sent it in a little over a month ago and they cashed the check a few days after I sent it. I have not received my FOID card yet and am getting a little annoyed.

By law they are supposed to send your card or a response within 30 days and I haven't received anything yet.

I got mine in 20 days. I just sent in my wifes application a few days ago. They have gotten caught up, but depending upon staffing it might have gotten backed up again.

Here is the State Police # for FOID questions.

<TABLE width="100%"><TBODY><TR><TD class=tmpl_blueshading>Firearm Owner Identification</TD><TD class=tmpl_blueshading>
(217) 782-7980
</TD></TR></TBODY></TABLE>

Last time we did it (maybe two years ago), about 4-5 weeks; oh yeah, the check was cashed in under a week. Good thing you are renewing now... if in the fall (hunting season) figure twice as long.

Glad we don't need an FOID where we live now.

Thanks for the replies. I find it funny they have no trouble getting the check cashed immediately but it takes forever to get the card.

I think mine took four to five weeks,

From Wikipedia http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/FOID_(firearms))
A FOID card legally must be granted within 30 days from the date the application is received, unless the applicant does not qualify. However, by January 2006, the backlog had increased and the State Police were taking as long as 50 days, in violation of the law, to issue or deny the FOID.<SUP id=cite_ref-southern4838_1-1 class=reference>[2]</SUP> Cards issued on or after June 1, 2008 are valid for ten years; cards issued prior to June 1, 2008 are valid for five years.<SUP id=cite_ref-PublicAct095-0581_2-1 class=reference>[3]</SUP> The FOID card will be revoked before its expiration if the individual becomes disqualified as described above.

I had read where they said they were getting around 40% done within 12 days after last years massive delays were over with.

I don't see how they get some of them done in 10-15 days and others take way longer. I can see if they haven't even opened the envelope but once they open it up and cash the check not sure why 1 would take way longer than the other.
