A person seeking restoration as a Licensed or Registered CPA, after it has expired or been placed on inactive status, can request restoration from the Illinois Department of Financial and Professional Regulation (IDFPR). If it has expired or been placed on inactive 5 years or more, you must contact IDFPR for a restoration packet to be mailed to you (which cannot be obtained from their website or completed online) by calling 800.560.6420.

If the license has expired or been placed on inactive less than 5 years, you can restore it without requesting a restoration packet. It will require a letter addressed and mailed to IDFPR along with supporting materials. If your license or registration lapsed 9/30/18, see process. For more details or if your lapse date is different than 9/30/18, contact:
