    Default ltcf never picked up

    This is probably a stupid question but my ltcf expired in 2015 and I quickly renewed it. However I forgot about it and never picked it up. Do they keep them until you pick it up or do you think they threw it out at this point?
    If I get “caught” without the license on me (even though it was approved) do they treat it as I don’t even have one?
    Thank you!

    IMO you don't posses it, you don't have it. IIRC it has to be signed. at least in berks county. You might want to take care of that, ASAP!

    A phone call will answer your first question and possibly your second.

    Even if you went on the theory that if found to be carrying without it, you could later produce it as proof, well... you don't have it to produce, so you're screwed.

    Someone recently mentioned that a LOST LTCF card resulted in the need to RENEW and REPAY to get a new one.
    If HE was made to pay and apply all over again even though he HAD a valid LTCF, I doubt you'd fare too well carrying without the physical card on you.

    My suggestion would be to stop carrying until you get the LTCF in hand. You didn't say whether they cashed your check for the fee or if you need to get photographed for the LTCF. In my view, failure to take possession of the LTCF for about 4 years is being irresponsible.

    "You have 60 days from the approval date to complete and pick-up your permit. After that time, we will need to get a new approval from PICS."

    You need to reapply.
    You are not considered to have an LTCF in your present condition.

    Just a FYI, in Montgomery County. You can no longer do a same day new/renewal, you either have to drop off the app and ID or email the app and ID, then return to the sheriff dept to pick up your LTCF M-F 8:30-12:30.

    I thought they were supposed to send out renewal notifications in the mail? but since OP didn't pick his up the process was probably never completed in the system

    Either way, it's been 4-5 years anyhow so the thing to do is just get one. Renewal process is same as getting one for the first time, it's not like he lost ground in any way. Just don't carry until it's obtained.
    I know where Hunter's been.
