Registering for PUNS: Transition Skills Tips and Tools
PUNS stands for Prioritization of Urgency of Need for Services. The Illinois Division of Developmental Disabilities uses the PUNS database to identify who needs services and what services they need.
Registering for PUNS is the point of entry to services in Illinois for individuals with developmental disabilities. Individuals who need help from the government to pay for needed Division of Developmental Disabilities Waiver services now, or in the future, should register for PUNS.
The Transition Tips and Tools sheets include information to help you understand and register for PUNS as well as links to brochures from the Illinois Department of Human Services.
