Gender Marker Updates

Gender Marker Change Letter

To change the gender marker on federal documents (Social Security, passport, immigration, etc.), you will need a signed original letter from a medical doctor. You can use the same letter to update the gender on a NYS Driver's License or State ID card, as well as New York City birth certificates. Give this sample letter to your doctor.

NY State Birth Certificates

Give this sample letter to your medical provider.  Note that the medical provider must have this notarized.
