Military dependents and retirees now have through the end of June 2021 to access benefits using ID cards that expired this year, thanks to an extension of temporary ID card rules issued in response to the COVID-19 pandemic.


Cards that do not expire (INDEF), such as those held by retirees over 65, do not need to be renewed.
