The following guidelines are offered to ensure that your identification card can be issued quickly:
The sponsor has to be with the dependents in order for identification cards to be issued. The only exception is that the dependents have a POA or a DD 1172 filled out and signed by the sponsor in clock 90 and Section IV filled out by either a DEERS issuing facility and/or the unit full timer.
Each person must have two forms of identification (one identification must have a picture). For the primary - acceptable forms of identification are military identification, driver’s license, college identification and passport. For the secondary – acceptable forms of identification are social security card and/or birth certificate or other state issued identification.
