State Sen. Christopher Belt, D-Centreville, sponsored an initiative that lead to the Illinois Department of Financial and Professional Regulation hiring its first military liaison to help military families through the licensure process.
The Illinois Department of Financial and Professional Regulation created a military liaison position to help service members and their spouses navigate the licensure process. The military liaison will enhance communication and improve the overall application process for service members and spouses when they choose to work in Illinois.
If military families provide all the necessary documents in their license applications, IDFPR can expedite their licensure within 60 days.
“This change will provide better accommodation to service members and their spouses when looking to obtain work in Illinois,” Belt said. “We must continue to make the lives of our military families easier for the notable sacrifices they have made for us.”
