The Designated Agent letter is issued to an authorized person designated by the military sponsor (or surviving spouse). This letter allows that person access to the Base Exchange, Commissary, and Pharmacy for shopping on behalf of the sponsor.

This letter is only valid for one year at a time. Only one person may be designated per household. Authorization cannot be granted solely for customer convenience – an extreme hardship must exist and be validated. Dual military couples (active duty) with children in the household and single parents (active duty) with children in the household may also have a designated agent when a family care plan is in effect.

Base Exchange and Commissary personnel have the right to limit purchases made in their store. Any suspicion that someone is attempting to make purchases in a fraudulent manner (for other than the sponsor and their household) may result in confiscation of the Designated Agent letter and suspension of privileges in accordance with 460th Force Support Squadron Standard Operating Procedure.

The following current supporting documentation must be presented each time a letter is issued and/or renewed: Authorized patron’s presence or valid Power of Attorney: If the authorized patron is unable to be present at the time of issuance, the person obtaining the agent card must have a current Power of Attorney authorizing them to conduct actions pertaining to the military on behalf of the sponsor or surviving dependent.

Authorized patron’s ID card: The authorized patron is the military or retired military sponsor or the surviving dependent of the sponsor. The ID card must not be expired.

Letter from attending physician: When the sponsor is physically unable to shop for themselves, they must obtain a letter from their doctor stating their incapacitating condition or inability to care for themselves. This letter must be current within the year of obtaining the agent letter. This requirement does not apply to active duty military couples with children or active duty single parents with children.

Copy of current Family Care Plan (Active Duty only): Dual military couples or single parents with children must provide this in order to obtain a Designated Agent letter (usually in cases of deployment, unaccompanied PCS or TDY). The designated agent must be someone designated as a caregiver on the family care plan.

Civilians retiring must have SF Form 50 and have TWO (unexpired) forms of ID (No Badges). One must be a state/government issued photo ID.
**Documents must be Original/Certified. Photocopies are NOT acceptable.**

 ANSWER: Through June 30, 2021, DoD will temporarily allow USID cardholders to use an expired DoD ID card to access bases and benefits.

Uniformed Services ID Cards USID cards that expire on/after January 1, 2020 may continue to be used to access military bases and benefits. In order to use the expired USID card, the cardholder must have a current affiliation with DoD and must be eligible for benefits. For example:

 An ID card issued to a spouse typically expires every four years; however, as long as the spouse remains married to the Service member, the spouse continues to have a current affiliation and is eligible for benefits.  As a result, a spouse MAY use the expired DoD ID card to access benefits.

– An ID card issued to a child of a Service member expires when the child turns 21 years old. Unless attending school as a full-time student, approved as an incapacitated dependent, or enrolled in TRICARE Young Adult, the child’s affiliation ends when the ID card expires and is not eligible for continued benefits.

– As a result, a child who has turned 21 and is not eligible for continued benefits MAY NOT use the expired DoD ID card to access benefits.  Please schedule an appt or walk-in into the Buckley AFB ID card facility during the hours above

 NOTE: A child under age 21, or who is eligible for continued benefits, MAY use the expired DoD ID card to access benefits.

USID cards are issued to retirees, family members, and other eligible individuals. If you have questions about whether you have, or are eligible for, a USID card, visit the following website: https://www.cac.mil/Next-Generation-Uniformed-Services-ID-Card/.

If you have questions about the status of your benefits, please use DoD’s online self-service resources before contacting DoD and Uniformed Service help desks by telephone. You can login to mil Connect, https://milconnect.dmdc.osd.mil/milconnect, using the DoD Common Access Card or DS Logon account. TRICARE coverage is found within the “Medical, Dental and Pharmacy” drop-down under “the Benefits” tab.

ANSWER:  Yes, with the following exceptions:

 – If the sponsor signs DD Form 1172-2 (Application for Uniformed Services Identification Card/DEERS Enrollment) in front of a Verifying Official, the family member may bring this form unaccompanied by the sponsor.

– If the sponsor signs DD Form 1172-2 (Application for Uniformed Services Identification Card/DEERS Enrollment) and has it notarized, the family member may bring this form unaccompanied by the sponsor.

– The family member may sign the DD Form 1172-2 (Application for Uniformed Services Identification Card/DEERS Enrollment) using a general power of attorney (P.O.A.).

– If the Sponsor visits www.dmdc.osd.mil/self_service and complete DD Form 1172-2 electronically.

ANSWER:  60 days from date of sponsor’s signature.

ANSWER: Based on COVID guidance Age 14, with the following exceptions:

– Dependent dual active service members

– Sponsor is a single parent

– Dependent is not residing in sponsor’s household

ANSWER:  Up to age 21. At age 21 if the dependent is enrolled FULL TIME in an accredited institution of higher learning, that dependent may have an ID card until the date of graduation of their 23rd birthday, whichever occurs first.
EXCEPTION: if the dependent is incapacitated, a child dependency packet needs to be completed. This packet can be obtained from our office and then forwarded DFAS.

ANSWER:  A Letter from the school registrar’s office stating that the dependent’s (student) full-time status and an anticipated graduation date.

ANSWER:  The sponsor will bring in the marriage certificate, birth certificate, social security card and picture ID (i.e. Driver’s License, State ID, etc.). For non U.S. Citizens a temporary ID number (TIN) will be used in lieu of a social security number. When foreign documents are presented, an English translation is required, no exception. (check with army OneSource or U.S. Department of State for assistance).

ANSWER:  It is dependent on the following:

 – A female sponsor needs only bring the children’s birth certificate and Social Security card.

 – An unmarried male sponsor must have the child’s birth certificate, Social Security card, and judicial determination (i.e. court-ordered child support or divorce decree naming children as his own). If no judicial determination has been made, forms are available at an ID Card Center that must be sent to DFAS for approval.

 – If a male sponsor is married and his wife is already on DEERS, he only brings the child’s birth certificate and Social Security Card.
