Where are Municipal IDs accepted?

Municipal IDs are accepted at any municipal institution, including schools, the police department and municipal court. Many financial institutions, including banks and credit unions, accept municipal IDs as primary or secondary identification to open an account. IDs can help in day to day activities like filling a prescription, picking up a package or applying for a library card. They are not valid for federal purposes, like boarding an airplane, or to obtain a driver’s license in New Jersey. In some cases, they may also provide the cardholder with benefits at local businesses, museums, and entertainment venues.
