Live in New York City? Apply for a (FREE) IDNYC!

All New York City residents, including Local 338 members, 10 and older can apply for a FREE IDNYC card regardless of immigration status. This ID card has many benefits! You can use the ID to enter all City buildings, such as schools, as well as gain access to City services and public libraries. At certain financial institutions, you can use the IDNYC to open a bank account, including the only unionized bank in our area: Amalgamated Bank. It can even be used as a form of identification to apply for jobs when submitted with proof of work authorization. ID NYC card holders also enjoy free memberships to 40 cultural institutions and museums, as well as access to discounts on prescription drugs, movie tickets, sporting events, health and fitness clubs, animal care centers, Citibike, and so much more!

To apply for a free IDNYC, you can schedule an appointment at a number of Enrollment Centers (mostly located within libraries and community organizations) across the five boroughs. Please note that applicants are only required to present proof of residency in New York City and proof of identity. IDNYC does not keep any of your original documents, all of your documents are immediately returned to you. The City will protect the confidentiality of all ID Card applicants and will not ask applicants for information about their immigration status for purposes of obtaining the card.
