Kentucky Identification Cards
Identification cards are good for four years and must be issued in the county where you reside. To obtain an ID card, you must show an original or certified birth certificate, Social Security Card (cannot be laminated) or W-2 Wage and Tax Statement or 1099 (most recently issued; full SS number displayed; not handwritten), and proof of address and marriage license, if applicable. Applicants under the age of 18 will need a parent or guardian to sign the application. Guardianship papers are required. We cannot accept laminated or photocopied documents.
All names on the documentation must match.
Name or address changes are required by law to be made to ID cards within 10 days. To obtain a name change, you must show documentation in the form of a marriage license, divorce decree or name change order. You must register your new name at the Social Security office at least 24 hours before being issued an ID card.
