Veterans ID card to be rolled out

A new ID card for armed forces veterans to help them access specialist support and services is to be issued to be issued to service leavers.

Any personnel who have left the military since December 2018 will automatically be given one of the new ID cards, which will allow them easily verify their service to the NHS, their local authority and charities. All other veterans will be able to apply for a new ID card by the end of this year.

The new ID card is one of three that are available to service leavers. Personnel leaving the armed forces are also able to keep their military IDs, known as the MOD Form 90. Additionally, veterans can access a range of discounts through the Defence Discount Service, the official MOD-endorsed service for the armed forces.

The cards will complement the NHS’ commitment to providing specialist health support for veterans in every part of the health service, enabling ex-service personnel in England, Scotland and Wales to access treatment where they have been affected by their service.
