A Birth certificate is a legal document issued by the State of your birth vital records office. The Vital Record is acceptable as a form of identification. Also, being born in the U.S. or born outside the U.S., with at least one of your parents being an American citizen, establishes eligibility for American citizenship.
You can use a certified copy of your birth record to obtain a driver’s license, or to get a passport. Also, when applying for government benefits, a social security card, even making a trip or to enroll in school. As of May 7, 2025, U.S. citizens and residents must have a REAL ID-compliant driving license or ID card to enter federal facilities and to board commercial aircrafts. As a result, requirements to obtain a REAL ID may include proof of identity, such as a certified copy of the birth certificate.
Birth certificates for people born in the U.S. and Record of birth Abroad certificates for people born outside the U.S. both include personal identifiable information, like full name, date of birth and place where the birth occurred, sex and the names of the parents.
