How Long Are Credential Cards & Fobs Used ?

Catch this one:

You can see internal parts (antenna coil) of this busted up ~17 year old card showing.

It is almost a given that this card was issued in 2000, and nothing further has been done since.

In your experience, how long are access cards issued for once activated? Do they look like this before changing?
