PPS Number

The PPS number is a unique personal identifier and is used extensively by Government Departments and other authorised users to provide the public with secure access to a wide range of public services.

Public Services Card

The public services card is designed to replace other cards within the public sector such as the free travel pass and the social services card of this Department and to make it easy for providers of public services to verify the identity of customers.


Gender Recognition Certificate

The Gender Recognition Act 2015 provides that a person can apply for a Gender Recognition Certificate in order to have their preferred gender recognised by the State.
