Confused Can't get I.D.

I need/want to get some form of I.D. but A. I don't have a single referee and B. I don't have anyway to pay cause nothing/nowhere accepts cash. Why are things always so difficult for me

I didn't know where to post this but it's genuinely stressing me out.

Hi, I'm in California, so bear with me. You don't drive? Here in the States our primary ID is usually a driving license. If a person doesn't drive, that person can pay about $25 and obtain an ID card that looks like a driving license, but is just an ID.

What is a "referee"?

I don't understand what an ID has to do with cash...I'm wondering if, in the UK, an ID is somehow connected to your bank, or...?

Lastly, who doesn't accept cash as payment? Except for sending cash through the mail (never a smart idea), when I was in Europe and Ireland everyone accepted cash.

I'm sorry I'm not being very helpful. I'm trying to understand your situation.

just did a google search for this....

if you are a resident all you need to do is take your birth certificate which shows you were born there, a photo of your self and the phone number of any of your friends who may have a job who can say you are who you are, even your school teachers can do this for you. cash well that will take some time and effort on your end... here in america we have donation centers where a person can donate to that will pay them (example red cross, plasma donation centers) many people here when they need money have lawn sales where they sell their out grown or no longer needed clothing, jewlery or other items. some people even sell some of their stuff on ebay and craigslist to make some money. I dont live in wales so only you would be able to say what you can do to earn a bit of cash to pay for your ID. maybe there are some low income places that can help you do this.

You can request duplicate birth certificate.

Here you can get a government issued ID quite simply. They usually require one of the following: source documents like birth certificate, baptismal certificate, social insurance card, or healthcard. Proof of residence can be as simple as the provision of a utility bill or other statement showing your name with current address. Surely you have at least one of these.

As for payment, if they won't take cash then get yourself a prepaid credit card. The best place to obtain this is your local post office.

I'm still confused by this post. Who won't take cash? From where are you trying to get ID?

btw, you can obtain your birth certificate (a certified copy) at the county registrar's office where you were born OR you can get it online.

If you have limitations that prevent you from getting an ID, speak to your mental health provider or a doctor and they might advice you on a course of action.

if you look at the posters designated location you will see that they are not in the USA. they are in wales UK, they have a different system then america has.

also many places now require a person to pay check or money order or credit/debit card, handing over cash is rarely used now for things like this. its well known that people who try stealing identities dont want a paper trail. by requiring money order, debit/ credit card or check there is a paper trail to follow. at the very least there will be a store and money order routing number to help locate the person trying to perpetrate identity theft.

my point here in america theres a process now to prevent the wrong people from getting other peoples personal information like birth certificates, ID's and so on. part of that is cash is rarely used now.
