DOD/OS RIN: 0790-AJ37 Publication ID: Spring 2022 
Title: Identification (ID) Cards for Members of the Uniformed Services, Their Dependents, and Other Eligible Individuals 

DoD is finalizing an interim final rule describing eligibility requirements for identification cards issued to uniformed service members, their dependents, and other Department of Defense (DoD) individuals. These cards are used for proof of identity, DoD affiliation, and to facilitate accessing DoD benefits. The rule will also update the Code of Federal Regulations to match revised contents of various internal DoD policy issuances and National Institute of Standards and Technology Federal Information Processing Standards. The interim final rule published in October 2016 reflects the intent of Executive Order 13988, titled "Preventing and Combating Discrimination on the Basis of Gender Identity or Sexual Orientation”; and Executive Order 14004, titled "Enabling All Qualified Americans To Serve Their Country in Uniform.” The final rule will indicate how it complies with and is supportive of these Executive Orders.
