If the DEERS/RAPIDS system malfunctions at any point throughout the day, please be aware that wait times will be longer than normal. Depending on the malfunction, we may be unable to process any ID card transactions until the issue is resolved. Please note that when the DEERS/RAPIDS system goes down, it is normally a worldwide issue and system outages are beyond the control of the ID card facility.
Please monitor the Fort Belvoir Directorate of Human Resources Facebook page for updates on the status.
CDC guidelines state that masks are no longer required to be worn by persons who are fully vaccinated. Masks are strongly recommended in workspaces or patron service areas where 6 feet of separation cannot be maintained.

If experiencing difficulty with scheduling ID card appointments, please try other browsers (i.e., Google Chrome, Firefox, etc.), as there have been technical difficulties which are currently being worked through ID Card appointment scheduler web master.
To minimize the number of non-essential required visits, the following guidance is in effect:
The Under Secretary of Defense recently signed a memorandum dated 2 June, 2021 extending USID Cards that expired between January 1, 2020 and July 31, 2021 through:
Foreign Affiliates and their dependents through August 31, 2021
Dependents of Active Duty Uniformed Service members through October 31, 2021
Reserve and National Guard Service members and their dependents through October 31, 2021
Retirees and their dependents through January 31, 2022
Common Access Cards (CAC) were not extended.
**Please do not procrastinate with ID Card renewals as we do not anticipate further extensions.**
Common Access Cards (CAC)
- CAC transactions will be limited to initial issuance.
- CACs will not be reissued due to printed information changes (e.g., promotions, name changes).
- The policy memorandum, allowing transferring DoD civilian employees to retain their CAC, will be reissued
Uniformed Services ID Cards (USID) such as Dependent and Retiree cards
- If a cardholder's affiliation is unchanged, USID cards that expired on or after January 1, 2020, and on or before July 31, 2021, are authorized for continued benefit use through the above deadlines.
- Termination of cardholder affiliation with the DoD or termination of benefit eligibility will be verified electronically prior to confiscating an expired USID card with an expiration date on or after January 1, 2020, and on or before July 31, 2021.
- The minimum age for initial USID card issuance is increased from 10 to 14 years.
- Service-specific procedures for remote enrollment and ID card issuance are posted on www.CAC.mil/coronavirus, "DEERS Enrollment and USID Card Issuance During COVID-19."
- Replace lost CAC or ID Cards.
- Initial DEERS enrollment.
- Pin resets and initial DEERS enrollment are the only service that will be seen without an appointment. All other services, to include lost cards, require an appointment at this facility. There are other facilities within the NCR that may not require appointments.
Additional information on CAC and USID card issuance and renewal changes is available at www.CAC.mil/coronavirus.
Dependents and Retirees can renew ID Cards remotely only if the USID expired prior to January 1, 2020 or is lost. If you fall into that category, see the steps below for how to renew your ID card remotely:
