Starting on July 13, 2020, PHL City ID will host pop-up mobile sites in partnership with community-based organizations. These mobile sites will operate on Tuesdays and Fridays. Those who are interested in getting the ID card must schedule an appointment. On August 3, the PHL City ID team will resume operations at City Hall, room 167, by appointment only.
The PHL City ID provides a secure and affordable photo identification card for anyone living in Philadelphia, age 13 and older.
The card helps create a more welcoming Philadelphia that embraces everyone who lives here. It is especially beneficial for those who have a hard time obtaining other forms of identification because of cost or other barriers.
The PHL City ID displays the cardholder’s name, address, date of birth, and self-identified gender. It assigns a unique identification number to each Philadelphian and displays an issue and expiration date on the card.
Each cardholder may include emergency contact information or medical conditions for safety purposes, space permitting.
Information about PHL City ID is available in multiple languages.
