Name and address changes submitted via this form will NO longer be processed. Effective January 1st, 2013, FOID card holders must reapply for a new FOID card within 21 days of an address change and within 30 days of a name change.

Due to the extremely high volume of firearm-related inquiries, we strongly encourage you to visit our Firearm Owner's Frequently Asked Questions. Currently the Illinois State Police Firearms Services Bureau is experiencing a record number of Firearm Owner Identification (FOID) card applications each month. If you do contact us, please be prepared to provide your full name, date of birth and most importantly the 8-digit number stamped on the front of your cashed check. If you completed your FOID application through a firearms dealer/store, please contact the dealer/store to obtain the range of numbers associated with your application.
