Statement from Mayoral Spokesperson Rosemary Boeglin and Council Spokesperson Robin Levine on Update to IDNYC Record Retention Policy

December 7, 2016

“The IDNYC program will be transitioning to a policy that does not involve the retention of cardholders’ personal background documents. During this transition, New Yorkers are encouraged to continue to call 311 and make an appointment to begin the pre-application process that remains in place. We expect to begin processing complete applications under the new policy in January.”

To apply for an IDNYC, call 311 and say “IDNYC” or visit
