Time to Renew? DoD Retirees and Dependents Now Getting Redesigned ID Cards

August 12, 2021

From the website

Military retirees and family members renewing or getting their first military identification cards this year are nearly guaranteed to receive the Next Generation Uniform Services Identification, or USID, Card, the first update to Defense Department IDs for non-active duty beneficiaries in nearly 30 years.

According to Pentagon data, 97% of the DoD’s ID renewal offices, known as Real-Time Automated Personnel Identification Card System, or RAPIDS, sites worldwide are issuing the new cards, which more closely resemble Common Access Cards used by troops and DoD civilians.

The transition to the new cards is expected to be completed by January 2026.
