It may take up to thirty minutes to receive the verification code in your .mil account.
Some servers will send the verification code email to your SPAM, or junk e-mail folder, be sure to check those folders.
If it has been more than 30 minutes, you've checked your spam/junk e-mail folders, and you still do not have your verification code, it could be that the military servers are blocking the e-mail completely. In this case, we recommend you attempt a different method. If you are currently serving, you should be able to verify using the "Verify using your active duty service date" option or you can upload a copy of your DD214, NGB Form 22, ERB/ORB or an LES by choosing the "verify by uploading military documentation option.
Alternatively, you can fill out a "DD214 Request Authorization" form by following the instructions listed on this page. This form authorizes ID.me to request a copy of your DD214 on your behalf.
