The US Department of Defence (DoD) is transitioning from its current paper-based Uniformed Services Identification (USID) card to a more secure version.
Security Document World reports the newly designed USID card will include security features to prevent counterfeiting and fraud. It will also be printed on a plastic cardstock.
USID cards are issued to retired and reserve members, dependent family members of Uniformed Services members, and other eligible individuals in accordance with DoD policy to facilitate access to benefits, privileges, and DoD bases.
According to Security Document World, USID cards in its current form will remain valid until their expiration date.
Individuals with an indefinite (INDEF) expiration date on their current USID card are advised to wait until summer 2021 to have their new USID card issued.
