What discount can I get for my vehicle's license plates?

We will tell the Illinois Secretary of State if we have approved your Benefit Access Application. They will send you a notice about the discount. When you go to the Illinois Secretary of State to pay your license plate fee, present this notice; and you will be eligible for a $75 discount on the fee.
