National Guard and Reserve Members
Are National Guard/Reserve personnel and their families eligible?

Your DEERS records must show activated status for you. To verify your eligibility status, contact DEERS before deployment, if possible, using the information below. Changes need to be made in person at the nearest ID card issuing facility.
