    Is DEERS required?

    Advertisements
    Is it required for my husband to enroll me in DEERS? I understand I don't have access to any benefits, ID, etc, or any standing as his wife until he does, but is he actually required to? Any time period after marriage that it must be done? I can't find anything about this.

    A reference would be helpful!

    I believe you have to if you want to get paid for dependant BAH. Also...you would never be on his orders.

    Why wouldn't you enroll?

    Like dexie said. If you want to be acknowledge by the military at all than yes. No bah, no base housing, no family sep when he is gone, no pcsing with him on the military's dime when he moves (and if it is overseas that means no living with him for all of the time he is gone) etc etc etc.

    I too am VERY curious as to why you wouldn't. Seems quite odd to me but open to hear reasons.

    Have you introduced yourself in the Newbie section? There's some good info over there regarding the forum.

    There's no mandatory requirement for enrollment. If you never want benefits, ID, or life insurance OR to be notified of his status then it shouldn't be a problem.

    curious as to why, but not my business. hoping it's not one of those convienence marriage..

    Ohhhh good point. But generally isn't the benefits the main reason for one of those marriages?
