* U.S. Coast Guard Personnel in uniform that require a CAC PIN reset only have head of the line privilege.

Eligibility - Armed Forces ID (AFID) Cards are issued to active duty, reserves, retirees, dependents (10 years of age or older unless dependent not residing with sponsor), and 100% disabled veterans (DVA) from all services; DVA sponsors MUST have their commissary letter and DD-214 by the Department of Veteran Affairs.

When applying for an AFID Card the following information applies:

All active and reserve military sponsors now have the ability to make address changes and issue a digital authorization form for their enrolled dependents when dealing with ID renewal and/or ID replacement due to lost, misplaced or stolen ID without physically going to a DEERS office with their dependents.  Sponsors can log-in to RAPIDS Self Service portal using their valid CAC card with access to CAC readers.  (Forms with digital signature do not apply to hard copies and will not be accepted).
