Retired Military ID Replacement

Veterans Tip of the Week – Do You Know Who I Am! – ID Card Replacement

If you ever have to replace your retired Military ID card, here is a good piece of advice. Check the access rules of the ID Office before you go to the base. I had to replace my retired Military ID card and luckily found out before I drove to Pease National Guard Base in NH, that the ID office was inside the perimeter of the base and I could not get on to the base without an escort or a sponsor – which they do not provide! I ended up going to Portsmouth Naval Station in Kittery, ME, instead. They have public access, outside the base – no Military ID (which I had lost) needed to get a new one.

If you don’t check first, you may not be allowed access to the very facility you need to get a new card.

I was told I needed a police report indicating the card had been lost (or stolen), so had to go to the police station and file a report. they generated a one page form for me. Every card is coded and old cards will come up as invalid, and will be seized by the gate guards.

The process itself was easy and painless. I walked in and explained what I needed, and was helped by a nice fellow retiree. They will ask you to confirm your SSN, check your fingerpirints, scan your two forms of government issued photo IDs (I used an unexpired divers license and Passport which worked fine for me), and issue a new card on the spot. They never even asked to see the police report.

You can also update important dependent information in DEERS at most locations.

Check here for locations: https://www.dmdc.osd.mil/rsl/appj/site?execution=e2s1. I would also call ahead to find out if there are any location specific requirements.

As always, please feel free to PM me if you have questions regarding you VA Benefits. If I don’t know the answer, we will find it together. #gogetrated
