In my experience, I filled out the paperwork at the hospital (when I also did the SSN documents) and then they asked how many copies I wanted. I told them what I wanted and they were mailed to my house, it certainly was not 90 days. I would call the hospital and see if they can assist you in any way. Just seems odd to take that long to get a document for a newborn. I know it can take longer for an adult who needs to go back 50 years but newborns should be easier to process. Wishing you luck!

Thank you all for your suggestions. So I called today Cook county clerk's current records unit and the person who I talked to told me to go Daley plaza for the certificate. So I went down there this afternoon, waited 5 minutes and got the certificate. Awesome.

So for future reference, don't go to a suburban facilities if you are in a hurry. Go downtown to room CL-25 in Daley Plaza (50 W Washington rd). Call (312) 603-6623 for help.

Glad it worked out....seemed too odd for you to have to wait 90 days for a birth certificate. Happy travels!

This may sound like a stupid question , but who needs to be present to apply/receive a birth certificate @ Daley Center?

Both parents? Parents + child? One parent + child?

Thanks!

I've always gotten anything I needed for my children by myself. I believe you will have to show ID.

You definitely don't need the child. Either of parents would do. But make sure your name is going to be on the birth certificate. Otherwise they won't give you the BC.

I had forgotten about this thread.. It was actually pretty quick and painless, it took me longer to walk from the train station than waiting for the BC.


Now, the SSN office, that's a different story. Why the heck is Illinois so slow to process SSNs????

SSN for newborns, Average Processing Times by state

Illinois is dead last, 14 weeks!

Then national average is 4 weeks
