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 Office 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.

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)
