Default DMV ID - reduced price for people on disability

I have a neighbor who is on disability and she needs to get her ID card renewed. Supposedly people on disability get a reduced rate of $6.00 instead of the $20 or more that the DMV now charges.

Is this correct? If so, what should she do to get the discount? I tried calling the DMV, but the hold time is nearly an hour long.

The DMV requires a form "DL 937" from the Social Security Administration to prove eligibility. Social Security claims there is no form "DL 937"!

From the DMV website:

Reduced–fee ID card

You may pay a reduced application fee for an original or renewal identification card if you meet income requirements from a public assistance program. If you are eligible, the governmental or non–profit program will give you a completed Verification for Reduced Fee Identification Card form (DL 937) to take to DMV to apply for your reduced fee identification card.

See your local public assistance program agency for information about eligibility requirements and obtaining a DL 937 form. (emphasis mine)

When the Legislature wants to raise taxes, upping the fees at DMV are the easiest way to do that--they're called fees, not taxes, but the money spends the same.

The horrid legislature may raise dmv fees again. My registration on my car went from 45 to 55 to 67 to 80. Its 26 yrs old. Cmon now.

Default DMV ID Renewal Disability Reduced Rate

How does my father get the disability reduced rate on a DMV id renewal? Is there a form he needs to obtain prior to going to the DMV. Or can he just provide proof of disability at the DMV? And if he needs a form where and how does he obtain such a form?

He needs to get a completed/signed DL937 form from whichever agency he receives assistance from, and take it to the DMV.
