Today, we are launching the most ambitious, dynamic and useful municipal ID program in the country, which will have a real and tangible impact on the lives of all New Yorkers.”
The IDNYC program offers a photo identification card for residents of New York City who are at least 14 years old. This municipal ID card connects New Yorkers to services, programs, and benefits, regardless of immigration status, homeless status, or gender identity.
Veterans can also request the IDNYC card with a special Veteran Designation that offers exclusive benefits.
You must apply for the card in person. Appointments are required. You will need to bring documents to prove your identity and that you live in New York City. If you require a reasonable accommodation, IDNYC will contact you about your request.
