Does your HHS ID Badge (PIV Card) work?

Your HHS ID badge (PIV Card) functions as your “key” to the NIH campus for such things as building access, library services, the perimeter security system and access to the NIH network. It is important that employees and contractors wear their NIH ID badges at all times and make sure the badge is valid – up to date and working properly.

Contact the Division of Personnel Security and Access Control help desk at 301-451-4766 or facilityaccesscontrol@​ if you are experiencing problems with or have questions about your HHS ID Badge (PIV Card). For more information about HSPD-12 and badging services, visit
