REAL ID Event Planned at Adult Center


Submitted Article

State Rep. Karen Boback (Lackawanna/Luzerne/Wyoming) invites 117th District residents planning to purchase the optional REAL ID to attend a free pre-verification event she is hosting on Monday, April 1, from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Wyoming County Active Adult Center, 101 Dymond Terrace, Tunkhannock.

PennDOT representatives will be processing the documents necessary for eventual purchase of a REAL ID, which is strictly optional,” said Boback. “Those IDs will soon be available but won’t be necessary until October of next year.”

Beginning Oct. 1, 2020, Pennsylvanians will need a REAL ID-compliant driver’s license, photo ID card, or another form of federally acceptable identification (such as a valid passport or military ID) to board a domestic commercial flight or enter a federal building or military installation that requires ID.

Anyone planning to attend the event needs to pre-register by calling Boback’s district office at either (570) 836-4777 or (570) 675-6000.

They also need to bring with them the following personal documents for scanning by PennDOT representatives:

  • Proof of identity (original or certified copy of a birth certificate with a raised seal or valid U.S. passport).
  • Social Security card.
  • Proof of all legal name changes (state or county marriage certificate or court order).
  • Two proofs of current Pennsylvania physical address (current, unexpired PA license or ID, vehicle registration card and a no more than 90-day-old bank statement).
