Funeral directors in New York State finally have up-to-date pocket cards.

In July, we reported funeral directors were carrying expired ones while waiting for new ones to be issued. The Association of Funeral Directors in New York told us then the delay was caused by an unexpected decision from the DMV to not print those cards. The DMV said it told the Department of Health it couldn’t' produce the pocket cards when approached last fall.

One of the funeral directors we spoke with, Joe Martin, tells us the cards were finally issued last week.

Funeral directors say these cards prove that a person is a licensed funeral director in New York.
