The city plans to issue the cards for people who don’t have other forms of identification, such as driver’s licenses.

Anyone who is age 13 or older can get a PHL City ID. The card will display the cardholder’s name, address, date of birth and self-identified gender.

The cards will be available in multiple languages and can be used as an ID within the city and to access city buildings, city recreation centers and for other situations requiring identification. Users can also link their library card.

The ID cards can be obtained at City Hall. In order to get your PHL City ID, you need to first make an appointment.
