ID Cards

The Morris County Clerk’s Office provides Morris County Identification Cards for senior citizens, 55 and older, who may not have a driver’s license or may just want another form of identification. They can even be used as a way for senior citizens and veterans to enjoy discounts at many participating Morris County businesses. These cards are used for identification purposes only and may not be accepted by certain agencies that require a state ID such as a driver’s license.
