Revoked Firearm Owner Identification (FOID) Cards

PA 98-063 430 ILCS 65/9.5

Your FOID card has been revoked. Within 48 hours of receiving notice of the revocation, the Firearm Owners Identification Card Act (430 ILCS 65/9.5) requires you to: (1) surrender your FOID card to the local law enforcement agency where you reside; (2) transfer all firearms in your possession or control; and (3) complete this Record. Failure to comply with this statute constitutes a Class A misdemeanor.

If you are the sponsor of a minor(s) who has a FOID, the minor(s) FOID card has also been revoked and must me immediately surrendered. If you or any minor(s) you sponsor have not completed this step, you may find a copy of the required form and additional on the Office of Firearms Safety Website at the Forms and Checklists tab.

If you believe the revocation was a mistake or you wish to appeal the decision to the Director of the Illinois State Police, please refer to the Office of Firearms Safety webpage for additional information.
