January 22, 2018, the REAL ID Act comes into effect, restricting domestic air travel for those with identification that is non-compliant with the Act. These requirements could impact your personal and professional life, limiting your ability to fly.

WHAT IS THE REAL ID ACT?

  • Enacts the 9/11 Commission’s recommendation that the
    Federal Government “set standards for the issuance of sources
    of identification, such as driver’s licenses.”
  • Establishes minimum security standards for state-issued driver’s
    licenses and identification cards
  • Prohibits Federal agencies from accepting for official purposes
    licenses and identification cards from states that do not meet
    these standards

Beat the rush. Apply for your compliant ID early to avoid the lines, and make sure that you and your family are prepared.
