Military Service Members and Spouses
The Illinois Department of Financial and Professional Regulation (IDFPR) knows how critical it is to military families to begin working as soon as they come to the Prairie State.
Illinois law includes several provisions designed to help military Service Members and Spouses who are an active duty member or whose active duty service concluded within the preceding 2 years before application. One of these laws states that once you or your spouse have submitted all the required documents and fee as part of your license application, your application will be reviewed within 30 days.
In addition to expedited review of your application, the Department’s dedicated Military Liaison will work with you and your military installation’s military and family support center to help you through the licensing process.
