The Senior Identification Program is a great service made available to all senior citizens (ages 60 and up) in the Town of Hempstead.
The Town Clerk's Office provides FREE Town of Hempstead Senior I.D. Cards, complete with a resident's personal data, physicians' contact information and emergency phone numbers. Allergies and other vital information can also be printed on these wallet-sized cards. Seniors will also get an 8 1/2" X 8" form that can be placed on their refrigerator doors.
These Senior I.D. Cards and forms may be useful in the event of an emergency, as medical technicians can quickly gather pertinent information about a senior and contact his/her doctors and family members.
The Town Clerk's Office regularly travels to area senior centers to provide this service. Members of churches, senior clubs and other organizations can also call the Town Clerk's Office at (516) 812-3046 to set up their own dates.
The service is also available at Hempstead's Mobile Town Hall and at the Town Clerk's Office at Town Hall, 1 Washington Street, Hempstead, NY. For further information, please call (516) 812-3046.;
If you would like to receive a Senior ID card, please visit our office at Hempstead Town Hall on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday, from 9 AM to 4 PM, or Thursday, from 9 AM to 6 PM.
