My first CEU renewal I did 16 non-mandatory CEUs, I was unaware that in Illinois 3 were mandatory. I was contacted by the Illinois Department of Financial and Professional Regulation when I renewed. I have since taken the 3 required mandatory credits, but now they are late. Now the IDFPR has “offered me to pay $500 for the late credits” or request a trial. Have any of you dealt with this issue? Should I request a trial or just pay? What are my chances of having this fine reduced or dropped? $500 seems awfully steep for 3 credits.
Welcome back to our forum, Danny!..Enjoy!
Thanks LK, I will.
Not only will you get a fine, but you will get a discipline on your public record. It is best to get a lawyer to help with the fine and keep this off your public record. Reach out to me privately if you want help.
