For your convenience...

It is reminded that those seeking New York State Benefit ID cards at the Rath Building may do so on the first floor, 158 Pearl St. side.

How do I obtain my NYS Benefit ID Card?

  1. Go to the self-server kiosk on on the first floor to attain a Photo ID ticket.
  2. Have a seat in Waiting Area D.
  3. Wait for your number to be called.

The Erie County Department of Social Services thanks those in our local community for their cooperation in this matter.
