    Enrolling in DEERS

    Advertisements
    Okay, Iím new to the military lifestyle and still trying to figure everything out. I searched around and couldnít find it, so Iím hoping you girls could help me figure it all out. Iím trying to figure out if Iím enrolled in DEERS so that I can get my ID. My DH sent me all of our paperwork (marriage certificate, birth certificate, etc) back, but I didnít get any forms or anything. Is there a way I can check to make sure Iím enrolled? Also, is there anything I need to do for the dental program? TIA!!

    he will need to find out- you should have gotten a form to get your ID-

    if you have POA you can try calling your branches nearest base to see if you are in the system.

    same with tricare.

    Yep. Get a POA, you will need it.

    Look for some forms to come in the mail. My forms came separate from what he mailed back to me. You should also get something in the mail stating that you have to make a premium payment for your dental benefits to begin.

    Thank you, ladies! I think I'll wait and see if I get anything in the mail. If I don't, I'll try calling the base since I have a POA.
