Mayor announces IDNYC program will launch an online renewal platform, which will make it easier for cardholders who enrolled in 2015 to renew their cards in 2020.
Mayor de Blasio announced that the IDNYC program – the country's largest municipal identification program – will launch an online renewal portal for New Yorkers who enrolled in the program in 2015. The new online portal will become available to cardholders on December 2nd, 2019, when the opportunity to renew will officially begin.
When Do Cards Expire?
With the fifth anniversary of the IDNYC program approaching in 2020 and many IDNYC cards approaching expiration, the program has created a streamlined and flexible online renewal process. Current IDNYC cards will begin to expire in December, 2019.
When and How Can I Renew My Card?
Beginning December 2, 2019, you may renew your card online up to 60 days before it expires, and up to 6 months after it expires. If your card expired more than 6 months ago, you will need to renew your card in person at an IDNYC Enrollment Center.
Can I Change My Card Information Online?
Most card changes will be able to be updated through the Online Portal, including change of address and adding a gender designation. For change of address, cardholders may be asked to upload and submit scanned residency documents. If you need to change your name, height, or eye color, you may start your renewal on the Online Portal, but must complete your renewal in-person at an Enrollment Center.
