Frequently Asked Questions

1. Does the sponsor need to be present to pick up the ID?  - No, the sponsor does not need to be present, as long as the DD Form 1172 was signed online in DEERS. If it was not signed online with CAC or DOSLogon, the sponsor will need to be present. 

2. Will the dependent(s) need to be present to pick up the ID?  - Dependents age 10 and older do have to be present to sign for their ID Cards, unless they are incapacitated, in which case the technician will annotate “unable to sign.”

3. How long will it take to create my ID card?  - Please allow 7 business days for your card to be processed before contacting the requested pickup location. You will receive an email when it is ready for pick up or if there are any issues.

4. What should I bring when picking up my ID card(s)?  - You MUST bring both forms of identification you provided when completing the renewal application, and any dependents over the age of 18.



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.
