ID Cards

The Clerk’s Office provides Morris County Identification Cards for Gold Star Parents, veterans and senior citizens. They are perfect for those who may not have a driver’s license or may just want an additional form of identification. Veteran’s ID Cards and Gold Star Parent ID Cards can also be used as a way 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 New Jersey Driver’s License or Non-Driver Identification Card.
