How Do You Apply for a Senior ID Card?
Procedures vary according to company and card, but it's possible to apply for some senior ID cards online. The Southeastern Pennsylvania Transportation Authority, Clipper and the California Department of Motor Vehicles each provide all provide senior ID application instructions on their websites, and the first two also offer online applications.
To apply for a senior ID card for the Southeastern Pennsylvania Transportation Authority, download the card application form, or get it from an customer service location. The application contains space to add personal information, as well as space to be left blank for a transit agent to fill in. The organization does not accept applications by mail; drop it off at a customer service location. Also be ready to present an approved second form of identification at drop-off. The customer service agent then processes your application.
To apply for a Clipper senior card, download an application and present an acceptable form of identification, such as a birth certificate, passport or military identification card with date of birth. Unlike the Southeastern Pennsylvania Transportation Authority, Clipper accepts applications by mail, email and fax.
To obtain a senior ID card from the California Department of Motor Vehicles, visit a state Department of Motor Vehicles branch and fill out the application.
