PROOF OF IDENTITY IS MANDATORY FOR ALL TYPES OF MILITARY ID CARDS

Two (2) valid, unexpired forms of identification must be presented to receive any ID card if 18 or older.  Refer to the DOD List of Acceptable Documents at the bottom of the page.  All documents must be originals or they must be official certified copies.

 

DD FORM 1172-2 OPTIONS (without being present with dependents)

-Sponsor can sign it in an ID Card Facility and have it put in the system

-Have a valid power of attorney (required for initial adds or see Adding/Nominating Family Members Online below)

-Sponsor can print form out, fill it out, and get it notarized

-Sponsor can fill out the form online (must be a replacement card, not initial) https://www.dmdc.osd.mil/self_service

**Sponsor is more than welcome to come in with dependents to fill out the form**

**DD Form 1172-2 is good for 90 days after being signed by Sponsor for the dependent to get an ID card**

 

SPONSOR UNWILLING TO SIGN THE DD FORM 1172-2

If the Sponsor is unwilling to sign the DD Form 1172-2 for a dependent, the dependent can come in the ID Card facility and receive a 30 day temporary card which gives us time to mail out the needed forms to contact the Sponsor and for them to respond.  After the 30 days is up and the Sponsor has not provided documentation as to why the dependent cannot receive an ID card, the dependent will then receive the normal dependent ID card.  Two valid forms of unexpired ID are required for all dependents 18 and older.  This DOES NOT apply to full time students ages 21-23.  Note:  Need the Sponsor's SSN or DOD ID number to start the process.

 

POWER OF ATTORNEY 

If your Military Sponsor is unable to accompany you to your visit, a valid "General" or "Special" Power of Attorney will allow you to conduct DEERS/ID Card business on your Sponsor's behalf.  A Power of Attorney is required for initial adds to the Sponsor's DEERS without them being present unless they are nominated in ID Card Office Online (see Adding/Nominating Family Members Online below).
