    In the AF, you don't need to change your ID with rank.

    Honestly, I don't change it at all. Not my rank, Not my problem.

    You can go without updating your ID for a few ranks up and down.

    You don't ever have to change an ID just because of rank. Since IDs expire every 4 years (or ETS if less than 4 years), you can just update the rank when you get a new card.

    I have always been told that it is required to update your ID card. There are some things that certain ranks are eligible for and not others. eg, at our base we have airmans attic, you can only use it if you are E5 and below and you show your id when you go in. If you do not update you id (and are writing a different rank on the sign in than what is on your id) you can loose privileges.

    DH was told that he's the only one who HAS to update also.
