Online Address Change

The online address change form is NOT for international residents. International residents must submit the paper form, which can be found here

As part of ongoing efforts to provide a more efficient and responsive regulatory experience, the Illinois Department of Financial and Professional Regulation (IDFPR) is implementing a new electronic initial licensure, license renewal and license reprint process. By moving away from a paper-based license process, IDFPR will save valuable licensing revenue that can be directed toward providing better service to licensees. Although this is a Department-wide initiative, the Divisions impacted are Professional Regulation and Real Estate.

You may verify your license status by visiting the IDFPR website License Look-Up feature and following the instructions listed. The Department considers License Look-Up to be the most accurate and current evidence of the status of your license as it is updated daily.

IDFPR requires each licensee to keep the agency notified of his or her current address, email address and phone number.

Change of name CANNOT be completed via this online process. If your name has changed, you must submit a written notice to the Department include documentation of the name change(marriage license, court order, or divorce decree).For a copy of this written notice please click here.
