Default IL FOID card delay

Alright, it has been 30 days since they cashed my check and I haven't heard anything back from them, so I attempted to call them yesterday and after 50 calls of getting a busy signal, I finally got through to find out I had a 41 minute wait, sat on the phone waiting for 1 and 1/2 hours and they finally closed by then and I was still on hold, so I hung up. I finally got hold of them today, took me 35 minutes to get through after being told it would be a 17 minute wait......ugh....found out they forwarded my application to a document revision department and was transferred to them to find out that they need more information from me in order to process my application and should be sending me a letter in the next week or so. Hell if I know why it takes 5 weeks or more to send a letter requesting more information. At least I found something out now.

A co-worker and I each got ours within a month. *shrugs* I applied for mine last year, he applied for his last month.
