ID cards can be picked up at requested location once you're notified they are ready (7-10 business days).  

Dependents must be present at pick up to sign for their card. You must bring the two forms of ID provided in the application.

Members are responsible for canceling online applications if individuals obtain a new ID card in person before the online application is processed. Not cancelling the online application will cause a second card to be created, invalidating the card picked up in person.

Please be informed that once we create your new dependent/retiree ID card, your existing ID card would be invalidated. Trying to use the existing ID card where scanning the bar code is required WILL NOT work (i.e. shopping at the commissary, scanning ID when trying to go through the gates, etc..). Therefore, we urge you to plan ahead when it comes time to pick up your new ID. We highly suggest that you have your sponsor or somebody you know that has access to get on base to accompany you.

Thank you for your understanding.
