The Golden Buckeye card, honored at 20,000 businesses statewide, has saved cardholders an estimated $2 billion since 1976. All Ohioans age 60 or older, as well as adults age 18-59 who have disabilities as defined by Social Security, are eligible for a free Golden Buckeye card.


How to Get a Card – Ohio residents who hold current Ohio Driver Licenses or State ID cards automatically receive a Golden Buckeye card in the month of their 60th birthday. Individuals who do not have a current license or State ID, as well as people under age 60 who are eligible due to disability, or who otherwise do not receive their card automatically, may apply for a card at public libraries. ID, age and disability (when appropriate) verification required (proof of Medicare, SSI, or Workman’s Compensation). You cannot apply for a Golden Buckeye Card online or by phone.
