The Fort Drum DEERS / ID Card Center provides world-class support to the 150,000 eligible beneficiaries throughout our region of support, which includes New York state and the Fort Drum community, Vermont, New Hampshire, eastern Canada, and the northern regions of Pennsylvania. We service retirees, federal civilians, contractors, family members, tenant units, National Guard, Reservists, and all enrollments of family members.


Sponsor must be present for all transactions or family member must have current verified DD Form 1172-2 (Application For ID Cards/DEERS Enrollment) signed by a verifying official or a valid General or Special Power of Attorney. Special Power of Attorney must state ID Cards / DEERS enrollments.

A common prerequisite for the issuance or renewal of ANY identification card to adults 18 or older is the requirement to provide two forms of original identification. One identity document MUST be an unexpired government-issued photo ID from the list of PRIMARY identity documents. The second identity document may be from the primary list or the secondary list. The identity source documents must be in the applicant’s name and cannot be expired or cancelled. If the two identity source documents bear different names, evidence of a formal name change must be provided. An expired Uniformed Services Identification (USID) Card may be used as a secondary identity source document for re-issuance of a new USID card but is not acceptable for initial issuance. A link is provided within each specific scenario that describes what constitutes acceptable identity source documents.

Documents required for renewing or replacing an expiring, lost or stolen card assumes that the individual is already enrolled in DEERS.
