My DH is gonna kill me. I finally got my act together today to get all our I'D cards. I called the office to see what all I need. And found out I need a POA to get my sons I'D since I don't have an 1172 for him. And since my and DDs 1172s are over 90 days old, I have to get new ones.

DH is going to kill me. He's in AIT so he doesn't get tome to go take care of paperwork. He's got pay issues, issues submitting his citizenship papers, and now this.

How old is your DS? 

I didn't get my oldest her ID card until she was 10.

I have no idea. She said all dependents, regardless of age get a dependent card. When they turn 10, they get a dependent card.

I was like, huh? So, everybody gets a dependent card? Is there a special one at age 10? Makes no sense to me.

Every dependent gets the same kinda card.

Yeah, I know that. It just seems....redundant. why not just say all dependents get I'd cards, regardless of age.

Everyone is right... Your child gets an actually ID card if they are 10. How old are your children?

I think what the woman you spoke to ment was this.

All wives/husbands must have a dependent card.  Children however do not typically get them until age 10 unless their parent's are divorced (in which case it helps for Tri-Care).

Out of our family only DH, myself and our oldest DD have ID card's from the military.

We are all enrolled in DEERS regardless of age (newborn to death/divorce/seperation from branch of service).  All dependents do not get them though until they reach a certian age.  I've asked questions in regards to the policy and was simply told "That's the way we've been doing it."  It's the military, it's not ment to make sense.

Basically though, if you have your POA along with the other paperwork they need (for us it's a copy of his orders) then you should have no problem getting your's.  Don't stress about getting them for your LO's until they are 10.

It's the military, It's not meant to make sense

I know exactly what you mean!!

I'm not worried about the kids I'ds. As long as I can make them doctors appts and show they have tricare, I'm happy.
