B. The Department has been notified that due to a system malfunction, one MDE
had received 4,633 applications that originally did not get processed properly.
Some of these applicants (around 1,800) have already submitted subsequent
applications which have been processed. All these original and renewal
applications were mailed to the Mt. Vernon, Illinois processing address and had
original receipt dates of January 29, 30, 31, February 5 and 20. All of these
forms are now processed and ISIRs should be available by May 30.
We regret the inconvenience that this has caused.
