    Beyond recording and archiving real estate documents, the Recorder's Office provides a number of services to the general public, corporate customers and specialized groups including local genealogical and historical societies.

    1)  Veteran's Id Cards

    Hamilton County Recorder Norbert A. Nadel is pleased to offer this service benefiting our United States Military Veterans. This program allows any veteran to obtain a Document Identification Card from our office. This card will display a photograph of the veteran, military service dates, and other pertinent information regarding the veteran's service to our country. This card contains the veteran's specific document number, so the discharge record can be rapidly located by this office when needed. There is no cost for the ID Card. Because of your service we are here to serve you!

    In order to receive a United States Veteran Document Identification Card, veterans must record or have recorded their military honorable discharge with the Hamilton County Recorder's Office. They must show two forms of current and valid identification. The only forms of identification the State will allow us to accept are:

  • An original or certified birth certificate
  • Identification card issued by the US Department of Veterans Affairs
  • United States military identification card
  • Social Security card
  • State issued license or permit to carry a concealed weapon
  • State issued motor vehicle operator's license
  • State issued identification card
  • Valid US passport
  • Appointments to have your ID made are scheduled on the quarter hour, Monday through Friday, from 8:00 AM to 3:45 PM - Please call Tammy at (513) 946-4567 to schedule your appointment. Location to obtain Veteran's ID - Hamilton County Recorder's Office - County Administration Building, 138 East Court Street, Room 205, 2nd Floor - Cincinnati, OH 45202
