    All I needed was my marriage license and my social security #. It prob would be helpful to bring the card though. I hadn't changed my name or anything yet and they put my married name on everything. Hopefully you won't have any problems.

    I needed my SS card, photo ID (license), marriage license and birth certificate. It won't matter that your name isn't changed yet on your card/ID.

    I think it has to be your social security card, but I could be wrong. Also I think when I got my military I.D I was auto enrolled in deers but had to go to tricare.

    Just remember DEERS doesn't automatically enroll you in Tricare, they are 2 separate things so you need to go and enroll in Tricare after you get put into DEERS.


    I will miss you SOS...
    Please be wary of what you post remember OPSEC is not just another acronym.

    She is correct, need to go to DEERS first, take your SS card, your State ID, Birth Certificate and Marrige Certificate.

    You dont need to have your name changed first. But all your enrollment and military ID will have your DH last name.
