Did you know Military retirees need to update their DEERS record when eligible for Medicare?

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.

Save time by making an online appointment.  Visit the Appointment Scheduler at https://rapids-appointments.dmdc.osd.mil.  Remember to bring 2 forms of government issued Identification.  If you need to locate your nearest Identification office, use the DEERS/RAPIDS Site Locator at www.dmdc.osd.mil/rsl/

Remember to bring 2 forms of government issued Identification.
