A new state law now makes identification cards available to people who have a medically diagnosed developmental disability. These new I/DD ID cards are meant to be presented to law enforcement, firefighters and emergency medical services personnel to aid in the communication process. If you prefer to use a printable form and mail in your request for an IDD/ID card, download and fill out our IDD/ID Card Request Form. The IDD/ID cards are for NYS residents ONLY.
PLEASE NOTE: DUE TO THE HIGH VOLUME OF REQUESTS IT MAY TAKE SEVERAL WEEKS FOR YOU TO RECEIVE YOUR CARD.
