The DEERS office is reviewing the process for civilian dependents to get their dependents DBIDS cards for installation access. Below is the process on getting a civilian dependent a DBIDS card:

  1. Retrieve a DD Form 1172 from the DEERS office showing your dependent is on your record.
    • If your spouse is not processed in DEERS, please bring to the DEERS office your marriage certificate, spouse's birth certificate, spouse's SSN card and a valid government photo ID for processing. For a child, please have the child's birth certificate, SSN card and a valid form of government ID (if applicable due to age)
    • For a child to receive a DBIDS card, they must possess a driver's license and need access on and off the installation. Any child without a driver's license will not be issued a DBIDS cards.
  2. Bring the DD Form 1172 to the Pass & Registration office which is located outside of the south gate.
    • Ensure all dependents have a valid government ID as well

Let our office know if you have any questions.

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?
To make an ID card, the Department of Defense RAPIDS system requires the Verifying Official to SCAN two forms of government-issued ID into the record repository. The documents cannot be expired or cancelled. If the two documents bear different names, evidence of a formal name change must be provided.
Are there any other DEERS locations in the local area?
Yes, you can locate a DEERS station closer to your residence by visiting
Select "Site Locator & Appointments section.
What do I do if I lose my ID and need to be issued a replacement?
If there is a lost/stolen/misplaced ID Card, a police report from local/Military Police stating lost Federal ID or First Sergeant lost ID memorandum and two (2) forms of identification can be submitted on the e-ID Renewal Process above. Two forms of unexpired ID must be provided, at least one with a photo.
