While ID.me can verify any Veteran, if you served prior to 1985 we may be unable to verify your service real-time via Military Service Record. However, Troop ID is available to all members of the armed forces, and ID.me can verify your service via your DD214. You can authorize ID.me to obtain your DD214 on your behalf by following the instructions below.
Step 1: Sign in or Sign up for your free account.
Step 2: Click on "Add ID" from the dashboard page.
Step 3: Select "Troop ID" from the list of Verification options.
Step 4: Choose the "Verify by requesting your DD214" verification option.
Step 5: Choose the affiliation that best fits your current status.
Step 6: Fill out all of the fields, check the boxes below the fields.
Step 7: Sign the form using your mouse as a pen (click and hold the mouse button to "touch the pen to the paper"). If you have a touch-screen, you can simply use your finger to draw your signature.
Once your signature is complete, click the green "Continue" button.
