4. Veterans ID

Honorably discharged veterans of all eras can now apply for a new veterans
card, officials with the Department of Veterans Affairs said Wednesday.

To receive the card veterans must log in to https://www.vets.gov
using either the ID.me verification system or a DS log-in. Users will then
able to apply for the hard-copy card by verifying their personal details
through the website and by submitting a copy of a valid government issued-ID
as well as a shoulders-up photo to the site.

Once the application is complete, users can expect to receive their new ID
card within 60 days. Officials said users will also be able to receive a
digital copy of the card by mid-December.

The link for the application is found at the bottom of the Vets.gov homepage
under the words “Apply for Printed Veteran ID Card.”

The ID cards are meant to offer a way for veterans to prove their service
without carrying a copy of their DD-214 form, which contains sensitive
personal information, such as veterans’ Social Security numbers.

****The new IDs will not, however, qualify as official government-issued
identification for air travel or other uses. ****
