Frequently Asked Questions
My sponsor is on deployment/TDY. How do I obtain a new ID if he/she is not present?
If your sponsor is unable to accompany you to your visit, a valid “General or Special” Power of Attorney will allow you to conduct business on your sponsor’s behalf. You may also provide a signed & notarized DD Form 1172-2.
Once the DD Form 1172-2 is signed, how long is it good for?
The DD Form 1172-2: Application for Uniformed Services Identification Card/DEERS Enrollment is good for up to 90-days.
Why do I need two forms of ID?
