Identification Cards

The Clerk’s Office and Department of Veterans’ Affairs have partnered to provide Passaic County Veterans with a free Photo Identification Card.  These cards identify Veterans who served in our armed forces and received an honorable discharge following their military service.  The ID cards give Veterans the ability to receive discounts or benefits offered by stores and restaurants.  (Click here to view the list of Businesses who are currently participating in the Discount Program)
Many establishments offer 10% or more in discounts to our Vets, who previously had to carry their DD-214 discharge document to prove their military status.

In order to obtain an identification card, a Veteran will need to present a copy of their DD-214 Military Discharge Record along with proof of identity and domicile in Passaic County.  They can also register their DD-214 discharge papers with the Passaic County Clerk’s Office.  Registering this form affords the veteran the security of knowing that his/her records are permanently recorded.
If you cannot locate your original DD-214, you may contact the National Personnel Records Center in St. Louis, MO at (314) 801-0800 for a CERTIFIED copy with a raised seal. For additional information, please visit http://www.archives.gov/st-louis/. 

There is no fee for the ID cards and Veterans may contact Keila Clacken at the Passaic County Clerk’s Office at (973) 881-4788 located at 401 Grand Street, 1st Floor, Paterson, New Jersey or Walter J. Davison at our Satellite County Clerk's Office at (973) 513-9900 located at 1237 Ringwood Avenue, Haskell (Wanaque), New Jersey to schedule an appointment for an ID card.  You may also attend one of our outreach sites for an ID Card.  Please arrive at the office no later than 4:00 p.m. so that our staff can assist you with any transaction

Veterans’ Peddlers Licenses

A Veteran Peddlers License is issued by the County Clerk’s office in the county where the Veteran currently resides. The license allows the holder to hawk or sell goods or merchandise within the State of New Jersey without the need to apply for any additional peddler’s license.

The requirements are as follows:
  • Applicant must bring in his or her Military Separation Papers (DD-214).
  • A copy of the discharge papers will be sent to Trenton for verification of service.
  • After Military service is verified (usually within 3-4 weeks), the applicant will receive a call from the County Clerk’s office to come in to pick up the license.
  • Two (2) duplicate 2” x 2” photos of the veteran are needed. You may bring your own photos, or have them taken at the County Clerk’s office for a $10.00 fee.
