DOD/OS RIN: 0790-AI61 Publication ID: Fall 2016 
Title: Identification (ID) Cards for Members of the Uniformed Services, Their Dependents, and Other Eligible Individuals 

The Department of Defense (DoD) is finalizing policy for the issuing of distinct DoD ID cards. These cards shall be issued to uniformed servicemembers, their dependents, and other eligible individuals and will be used as proof of identity and DoD affiliation. This rule extends benefits to same-sex spouses of military service members and DoD civilians, at the direction of the President and the Secretary of Defense, based on the June 26, 2013, U.S. Supreme Court decision to repeal section 3 of the Defense of Marriage Act. Additionally, the Department has identified family member and dependent benefits that may lawfully be provided to same-sex domestic partners of eligible DoD civilian employees and other eligible individuals and their children through modifications to DoD policies and regulations. These benefits are extended to same-sex domestic partners and, where applicable, children of same-sex domestic partners, once DoD civilian or other eligible individual and their same-sex domestic partner have signed the appropriate declaration attesting to the establishment of their same-sex domestic partnership. This rule will be finalized by 0790-AJ37.
