To ensure DoD ID card offices maintain continuity of operations and minimize the number of nonessential required visits, the Department of Defense has extended Uniformed Services ID cards (dependent and retiree ID cards) until June 30, 2021. We have been informed USID cardholders can use expired cards for benefits such as the commissary and exchange services, installation access, and Tricare through that date.

In order to support Common Access Card and Volunteer Logical Access Credentials card holders whose credentials are set to expire on Sept. 30, the Fort Belvoir ID Card Facility will, for the next two weeks (Monday through Oct. 2) only accept services for CAC issuance to Fort Belvoir assigned or place of work personnel in the following categories: Uniform Service members, DoD civilian employees and DoD contractors.

Appointments for CACs are not required and this facility will see people until capacity is reached. Services are available Mon. – Fri., 8 a.m. - 4 p.m. Customers are not admitted after 3:30 p.m., due to the duration it takes to make a CAC. The Fort Belvoir ID Card office is closed from noon - 1 p.m.

Customers are reminded they may check how surrounding military installations in the National Capital Region are operating at https://idco.dmdc.osd.mil/idco/. For additional information, visit https://www.cac.mil/Coronavirus.
