As an employee new to government, one of the things you will need is a government photo identification (ID) card. Photo ID cards are available for all government employees and contractors. This card will help identify you as a government employee, and will often need to be worn inside government buildings, like the Legislative building. All employees are encouraged to acquire photo ID as soon as they begin work. Photo ID cards can be valid for up to five years and need to be replaced once they expire.
