Military Dependent ID Card Shortage

  • 78th Force Support Squadron

The 78 FSS/MPF DEERS office is in short supply of dependent ID card stock due to a supply shortage identified at the Air Force Distribution Publishing Office. They are forecasted to exhaust their current supply by the beginning of March.

The Air Force is expecting to receive new dependent ID card stock late April 2020.  In the interim, any dependents that have an expiring or expired dependent ID card should stop by the DEERS office (Bldg. 767), with your sponsor, and request to have a DD Form 1172-2, Application for Identification Card/DEERS Enrollment, printed. The DEERS technician will annotate the DD Form 1172-2 stating that the dependent ID card stock is not available and the DD Form 1172-2 verifies the dependent’s DEERS enrollment and eligibility. 

Questions should be directed to the 78th FSS Military Personnel Section DEERS and ID Card Office: (478) 327-5666, option 1.

For base entry: Dependents must visit the Visitor Control Center for issuance of a 90 day DBIDS credential (visitor pass card). Dependents will need to show their expired ID card, DD Form 1172-2 and a valid I9 document to obtain a 90 day DBIDS credential.                                             

NOTE:  Security Forces will confiscate all expired ID cards, so when dependents visit the VCC they will have their expired dependent ID card taken away by Security Forces.

For medical use: Dependents must show a valid photo ID and the DD Form 1172-2 upon check-in for any medical service received on Robins AFB. This includes any medical appointments as well as prescription drop-off and pick-up at the 78 MDG Pharmacy.

For commissary & Base Exchange use:  Dependents must show a valid photo ID and the DD Form 1172-2 at check-out to be authorized to make purchases at the commissary and Base Exchange. All cashiers will have a signed letter stating that dependents with a DD Form 1172-2 will be permitted to make purchases in absence of their dependent ID card due to supply shortage.
