The IDNYC Card, also known as the NYC Identification Card, is the new municipal ID card issued by New York City. For immigrants, this card will open many doors which were previously closed to undocumented immigrants. For those interested in using the many resources of the library system, this will make it easier. The IDNYC Card, will ¬†also be accepted as identification, for parents who wish to enter public schools to meet with their child’s teachers. Immigrants will have access to discounted prescription drugs from pharmacies throughout the city. This will also make it easier to rent apartments and get access to financial institutions. These are only a fraction, of the many benefits this identification card provides to those who register for the cards. However, the IDNYC Card does not change the legal status of immigrants, that is covered by federal laws.
