– To help educate local residents about the process to apply for a REAL ID, Rep. Marci Mustello (R-Butler) will host an informational session on Wednesday, Feb. 26, at 6:30 p.m. at the Butler Township Building, 290 S. Duffy St., Butler
Beginning October 1, Pennsylvanians will need a REAL ID-compliant license or identification card or another form of federally acceptable identification (such as a valid passport or military ID) to:
• Board domestic commercial flights.
• Enter a military base.
• Enter a federal facility that requires ID at the door.
“Many people ask me questions and I know others still have questions about what the REAL ID is, how REAL ID will affect their future travel plans, and what documents are needed to obtain a REAL ID,” said Mustello. “I put this seminar together with the help of a PennDOT representative, who will be in attendance to answer all of your questions and concerns.”
It is important to note that REAL ID for Pennsylvania residents is not mandatory. Only those residents who fly commercially or want entry into certain federal facilities will need one. Also, residents who have valid U.S. passports do not need to obtain a REAL ID. Passports can take the place of REAL ID for those purposes.
Documents needed to pre-certify for REAL ID include a passport or an original or certified copy of a birth certificate filed with the state office of vital records with a raised/embossed seal – issued by an theorized government agency, a Social Security card, two proofs of current physical address (examples include unexpired PA driver’s license or ID, vehicle registration, auto insurance card or utility bill), and proof of all legal name changes.
Registration is required for this event. Anyone interested in attending must RSVP online at RepMustello.com/events
