PHILADELPHIA - The Department of Homeland Security is reminding Pennsylvania residents that they will need a Real ID to board an airplane starting in October of next year.
The Real ID will have a star in a gold circle on the upper right-hand corner of the license or identification card.
There are other acceptable forms of identification, such as a passport, that can be used to board flights or enter secure federal facilities.
To get a Real ID, you'll need to visit your local Pennsylvania Department of Transportation office and bring these documents to prove U.S. citizenship and Pennsylvania residency:
- one proof of identity
- one proof of legal presence
- two proofs of Pennsylvania residency
- one proof of your Social Security number, if you’ve been issued one
- a current driver’s license, if you are applying to exchange one issued by another U.S. state.
