2) Upon receiving notice of suspension, the FOID Card holder must comply with the Firearms Disposition Record (FDR) provisions of Section 9.5 of the Act but shall surrender the FOID Card to the law enforcement agency or person listed on the FDR regardless of whether the FOID Card holder owns or possesses firearms.

b) Revocation

 

1) Whenever the Department finds that a person to whom a FOID Card was previously issued is disqualified pursuant to Section 8 or 8.2 of the Act other than as the result of a disqualification as provided in subsection (a)(1), the Department may revoke and seize the FOID Card.

B) their FOID Card has been lost, stolen, or destroyed; or

 

C) they no longer wish to possess a FOID Card.

 

2) If an applicant's payment is rejected due to insufficient funds and the applicant fails to pay all required fees, then the Department will cancel the applicant's FOID Card.

 

3) FOID Cards that are cancelled are not subject to the requirements of Section 9.5 of the Act but must be destroyed or surrendered to law enforcement.
