With security so important today in order to travel in the United States as well as dealing with stores, banks, and any other service providers, photo ID’s are a necessary way of life everywhere we go.
The Sheriff’s Department will provide a color photo ID card to seniors with proper identification, that may be used as a secondary means of photo ID in conjunction with a regular state or federal photo ID card. Additionally, important information such as “Emergency Contact”, “Allergies & Illnesses”, “Living Will”, and “Organ Donor” information along with the cardholder’s descriptive identifiers are contained on the back of this card.
Non-Driver ID Cards
Most commonly accepted primary photo ID cards are U.S. passports, state driver’s licenses, government employee and military ID cards. If a senior does not have a New Jersey Driver’s License, they may also obtain a New Jersey non-driver identification card at any NJ Motor Vehicle Commission office. Information on obtaining a non-driver ID card may be obtained online. In order to obtain a New Jersey non-driver ID card, the applicant must provide 6 points of identification. This information is outlined by going online.
Receiving your ID
Seniors may get their free ID cards at two different locations.
Community Services Unit County Administration Building 49 Rancocas Road Ground Floor Mount Holly, NJ 08060
The Sheriff's Department is open from 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Please call 609-265-3788 to schedule an appointment.
The Sheriff’s Senior ID Card may not be accepted alone as a single form of ID. We recommend that in the absence of a primary form of photo identifications, that individuals carry additional ID information when traveling, such as:
Bank Statement (showing individual's name & address)
Birth Certificate or Naturalization Card
Marriage Certificate (where last name change appears on ID)
Proof of Address (ex. Utility bill showing name and address)
