Military ID ...confused.

Hello fellow canucks! It's finally nice and sunny today.

But on another note, I was wondering if anyone has any experience with obtaining US Military ID. Spousal of course.

I've heard of some Filipinos getting it through the embassy in Manila, so I was wondering if the embassy in Ottawa does something similar. If not, should I just pay a visit to the US and go to a base and get it? If I do the latter, will I need a SSN?

But yeah, I'm really confused and clueless!

So if anyone has any information or experience on the matter.

Please share. <33

Thank you.

i've never heard of anyone being able to get a military id issued except at a military base. your spouse will need to complete the paperwork and send that to you, and you go to the nearest us military base to get the id card issued. your spouse may be able to ask at his location what is the nearest location to you.

ssn isn't required, they will give you a temp id card (i can't remember if the ssn field is XXX'ed or if a computer generated one is used) but as soon as you have a ssn you need to get a new card with the corrected number on it.

Well, my plan is, once I have the paperwork, I'll go visit my in laws in Las Vegas, and go to the Airforce base which is a bit north. So, it should be fine if I bring copies of his deployment orders, the papers, and they won't demand a SSN? Hmm.

How positive are you charles?! XD

ask nessa, she didn't have a ssn when she got her first dependant id card. if you know what base you'll be going to, call ahead of time and verify just to be sure things haven't changed in the past 2.5 years.

Ok, just made me pull out my dependant card :-)

It does have social security numbers on it - mine is on the left-hand side and my husband's is on the right hand side below the cards expiration date, husband's status and rank. MIne is on the 1173-1 which is for national guard.

Got mine when we moved here - was on DEERS already just didn't have the card.

Now the thing I don't understand - are you going to get the card before you get your visa or how? I think you want to have visa and the SSN so you don't have to keep coming back to get updates all the time. For SSN, when you go to SSA office and apply for one I believe you can get that NUM IDENT page printed for you with the SSN assigned before you get the real card in the mail.

Not sure if any of this helps you, but wanted to help :-)

I'm pretty sure you don't need a SSN. My best friend's sister married a US Army guy and got her card before she got her CR1 visa. I know for a fact that she didn't have a SSN and I know for a fact that she had the card because she used it when she crossed the border before her visa was issued once when they were giving her a hard time.

Hmm, I will have to give them a call then. Thanks so much for the information! The thing was, I was worried he wouldn't be making the required amount of money...(lame worry, but important!) so I wanted to get the card, so he could begin getting paid for me. Turns out, he is making over the 100%. He's only an E-3, he'll be an E-4 soon, but he'll be E-3 until the end of the year...thank you so much though.

And if anyone else has more information, please let me know and post here. :)

I got my MIL Id card before I got my SSN. YOu need to be registered in DEERS though before the card can be issued. Also now,..dependants cards, are now stating SSN ON FILE, the physical number no longer appears.

Well let me expand on that. My children had their cards re-issued in January, because they got their ITIN replaced with a SSN. Their old cards just had their alien number on them. The new ones now have "SSN on FILe" on them. MyMIL ID still has my SSn on it, til the next time I replace it, then mine will say the same as the kids. Its a new process tahts being implemented slowly, and they have started with dependants.

Is it Nellis AFB? There is another one, I can't remember what it is. My fiance is AF stationed in NE, he spent some time at Nellis last summer, and of course had a great time visiting Las Vegas too!

Yeah it will be hard to get onto the base without a dependent ID card, and your spouse has to fill out some of the paperwork for your ID card as well. Depends if you need access to an on-base office that processes the ID cards. Unless your in-laws have ID cards based on active or retired military to get onto the base and he sends you the paperwork that is needed. The requirement may be for both parties to appear in person??, best to contact the base about it.

Yeah it will be hard to get onto the base without a dependent ID card, and your spouse has to fill out some of the paperwork for your ID card as well.

Hello all,

Am new here on the board, but an old had going through this military red tape (33+ years).

A spouse does not need to be present to get your military ID as long as you have the AF Form 1172 and Assoc. before hand. You will show these documents at the visitors center where you will be issued a temporary base bass. If at the same base as your spouse but they happened to be TDY or deployed, their section chief should be able to escort you if difficulty. Most bases are decent as long as you have the correct documents in possession before hand.

Myself, my Colombian spouse in living in Panama and will need to enter into the U.S. Embassy to get her (and her child) Government ID next week. I completed their From 1172's, they were also issued a temporary ID number in place of the SSN until a TIN is issued (IRS turned down last documents).

We have been married now for 5 years, she has traveled with me throughout the E.U. (U.S. Army issued/D.E. Contractors ID could have gotten a U.S. Military but the contractors ID is a sponsorship by my prior Corp.). Now she desired to join me here in the U.S. Is too bad we have to jump through all these hoops just to get permission for her & her son to join me.

I know if she has any hastles, she will tell them where to actually process this :-) I desire her here, but I have had residency in Panama, and currently processing for her home country citizenship so would depart to visit her either location, and quite possibly renounce my citizenship later..all depends on outcome but with previous years experience the later looks more and more promising.

Need to research on the board about military members processing for their spouses to see what exactly is required. UCIS was very helpful and seems like the process is very easy, especially with the required military documentation. If anyone here has been through this process already (With no diployment orders involved), please get in touch with me, thank you
