NYS Developmental Disabilities Identification Card

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 directly from OPWDD  or open it as a pdf file here DD_ID Request Form Updated 5-8-19 dmd.

 

The IDD/ID cards are for NYS residents ONLY.
