Replace a lost ID card

REAL ID Act

Starting July 1, 2018, all standard cards will be marked with language to indicate they're not valid for federal identification purposes. You may continue to use your marked or unmarked standard card for boarding airplanes and accessing secure federal facilities until October 1, 2020. Enhanced driver licenses and ID cards meet federal Real ID requirements and won't be marked.

If your ID card is lost or stolen, you may get a replacement if:

  • We have your current address on file.
  • and
  • Your card hasn't expired. If your ID card will expire within 90 days, you should renew it instead of replacing it.
