Military ID Cards Now Available To Veterans

Military ID Cards Now Available To Veterans

Forces veterans can now apply for ID cards recognising that they have served in the military.

From today (Monday), any personnel who have left the military since December 2018 will automatically be given one of the new ID cards, which will allow them to maintain a tangible link to their career in the forces.

Veterans who have already made the transition to civilian life will be able to apply for a service leavers ID card by the end of the year.

The initiative is designed to give veterans easier access to public and charitable support including healthcare and housing.

Veterans are also being asked to identify themselves with their GP as having served, so that they can receive appropriate support.

Minister for Defence People and Veterans Tobias Ellwood said: "We owe a huge debt of gratitude to the ex-forces community, and we are working hard to ensure they receive the support they deserve.

"These new cards celebrate the great commitment and dedication of those who have served this country, and I hope they can provide a further link to ex-personnel and the incredible community around them."
