Identification (ID) cards reflecting Retired Reserve (without pay) status for the individual and eligible family members will be issued at any ID card-issuing facility upon presentation of NOE and transfer orders to the Retired Reserve (without pay).

The Reservist will receive a DD Form 2 (Red) ID card, while eligible Family members receive the DD Form 1173-1 (Red) ID card.

Entry into the Defense Enrollment Eligibility Reporting System (DEERS) is essential for proper eligibility verification and future ID card renewal/status changes.
