First ID Card for stepchildren and parents

What to bring when enrolling family members:


  • Stepchild: To enroll a stepchild, sponsors will need the original or certified copy of the marriage certificate, the child's original birth certificate, and social security card.
  • Parent: To enroll a parent or parent in-law, sponsors have to:
    (1) Fill out a secondary dependency packet, DD Form 137-3; which you can get at the DEERS /ID CARD Center or Click Here for DD Form 0137-3
    (2) Once completed, send the DD Form 137-3 to the Defense Finance and Accounting Service; either by mail, fax, or electronically. If approved, DFAS will send you back a Determination Letter and an DD Form 1172-2.
    (3) Bring those two forms in addition to the parent's birth certificate, photo ID and social security card (If a US Citizen). We have to show the connection between parent and child so we also need the birth certificate of the child (Who is now the sponsor) of the parents we are enrolling. (Don't forget to bring your parents.)
