Applications and Procedures
Coordinating and completing the federally mandated yearly “firearm qualification” and issuance of the IROCC card is the only function statutorily granted the Illinois Retired Officer Concealed Carry program by federal law.
We do not offer legal opinions or attempt to clarify information of these Federal Statues.
Step 1: Submit the complete application (New or Renewal) to the IROCC office for processing.
Step 2: Once your application has been processed you will receive a list of all the upcoming qualification shoots. Choose a location and date and attend the shoot. Written notification of approval/denial of an application shall be sent within 60 working days after receipt of a completed application by ILETSB, unless additional information is needed.
Step 3: Your card will be mailed approximately 10 business days after the qualification shoot. The card is valid for twelve months. Renewal notifications are mailed two months in advance of your expiration date the following year.
Please select the correct application packet. If this is your first time applying for the IROCC program, please choose New Application. Please choose Renewal Application if you have previously been in the IROCC program.
