USID Card Extension of Benefit and Entitlement

Due to the continued spread of COVID-19, and the Department of Defense's limited ability to return Identification (ID) Card facilities to normal operations while complying with all safety pre-cautious, the Under Secretary of Defense has approved an extension of the Uniformed Services ID Cards expiring 1 January 2020 through 30 June 2021. Uniformed Services ID Cards are the DD Form 1173 - Identification and Privilege Card for Family Members and DD Form 2 (Retired) - Identification Card for Retirees. This is good news for Beneficiaries. As long as the cardholder's affiliation is unchanged, USID cards which expired on or after January 1, 2020, are authorized for continued benefit use through June 30, 2021 and access to military installations.

This policy is not applicable to the Common Access Card (CAC) or dependents turning 21 years old. Unless an unmarried adult child is attending school as a full-time student with extended eligibility, approved as an incapacitated dependent, or enrolled in TRICARE Young Adult, the affiliation ends when the ID card expires and therefore is no longer eligible for continued benefits.

Tricare will allow beneficiaries to be seen by a provider and will accept claims even if the ID card is expired. Beneficiaries must provide the sponsor's full social security number and benefits number that is listed on the back of the Military ID Card to the provider. No lapse in TRICARE coverage or benefits.

Uniformed Services ID Cards are the:

  • DD Form 1173 - Identification and Privilege Card for Family Members
  • DD Form 2 (Retired) - Identification Card for Retirees

Tricare will allow beneficiaries to be seen with expired ID cards. Beneficiaries must provide the sponsor's full social security number and the benefits number that is listed on the back of the Military ID Card to the provider.
