Once you have submitted your online application and have filled all the other requirements, your license application will be reviewed by the state. Your background check from the application will also be reviewed.
If everything is to acceptable standards, your license should be issued. You will receive an email confirmation of approval with steps to print a copy of your license and access your education transcript. If there are any items from your background check that need to be reviewed, it may slow down the process of issuance. If this is the case, the state may contact you to provide context to the issues that they found.
If three (3) days pass after submitting your application and you have not received an email, contact the Illinois Insurance License Office at DOI.InfoDesk@illinois.gov or by phone (217) 782-4515.
