Did you know that Military Retirees must update their DEERS record and Retired Identification Card when becoming eligible for Medicare, normally at age 65? Once updated, your new Identification Card will never expire.
Additionally, the new Identification Cards no longer display your Social Security Number. There is a new DoD ID Number on the front and a DoD Benefits number printed on the back. If your Retiree Identification Card currently displays your Social Security Number, you may get a new one anytime.
To find the nearest ID Card Office and to schedule an appointment, go to the ID Card Office Online site.
Remember to bring 2 forms of government-issued identification.
