Applicant’s Identity

LIHEAP staff verifies the identity of the person who applies for LIHEAP.

Acceptable Verification

The household may provide anything that “reasonably” proves the identity of the applicant. LIHEAP staff may consult what DHS already has in imaging, what the household submits, or collateral contacts when other verification is not available.

Acceptable forms of verification include but are not limited to

  • a driver license,
  • a work or school id,
  • an id from a health insurance or an assistance or social service program,
  • a voter registration card,
  • a pay stub,
  • a birth certificate, or
  • a Social Security card.
