DOD Retirement Identification Card

The Department of Defense (DOD) began the issuance of retiree identification cards (ID) in 2008 for DOD civilian retirees who retired on an immediate annuity. The ID cards do not afford any privileges or benefits. They are for identification purposes only. However, individual installation commanders may authorize use of these cards to access the base or installation.
