When verifying your Military affiliation using an email address with a .mil extension, we send an email confirmation to that address.
It may take up to 15 minutes to receive that message. Some email services may forward the message to your spam or junk email folders, so be sure to check there.
If you still have not received a confirmation email after 15 minutes, we recommend selecting a different verification method.
- If you are currently serving, select Verify using your active duty service date.
- Or select Verify by uploading military documentation and upload a copy of your LES, ERB/ORB, or current military orders (for activated Reserve & National Guard).
- Alternatively, you can fill out a DD214 request authorization form by following these instructions. This form authorizes ID.me to request a copy of your DD214 on your behalf.
