Senator Charles J. Fuschillo, Jr. (R-Merrick) will be partnering with Nassau County Executive Ed Mangano in sponsoring a free Senior ID Card Program in North Merrick. 

The program will be held from 12:00 pm- 3:00 pm on Friday, February 8th at the North Merrick Library, located at 1691 Meadowbrook Road in North Merrick. All Nassau County residents ages 65 and over are eligible to participate and receive a free senior ID card.  No appointments are necessary. 

The program allows seniors to obtain a free wallet-sized ID card which includes a photo and the holder’s personal contact information (name, address, phone number, date of birth) and an emergency contact name and phone number which could be useful to emergency responders. Seniors can carry the card in their wallet so that in the event of an emergency where the senior cannot communicate with emergency responders, they will know who to contact.  

Residents who would like more information about the Free Senior ID Card program on February 8th can call Senator Fuschillo’s office at 516-882-0630.
