    Do children of Retired (not separated) military members still hold ID cards? What benefits do they have?

    Hmmmm... i shall creep this thread, this will be us in less than 2 years...

    I know they still get Tricare, so I would assume an ID card...

    Yes I they keep their ID card until their 18th or 21st birthday I can't remember which. And I am 98% sure that is correct.

    I had mine until I was 23 because I was still in school until then, just once I hit 21 I was having to get a new ID every year by my birthday to show that I was still enrolled in college. As far as benefits I had full medical and access to post and all of the stuff that goes along with that (px, commissary, etc). I don't know what the age that they lose benefits/ID card is if they're not in college though, it's either 18 or 21.

    Yes my dad is retired and I got to keep my id card. It was just the same as it was when he was in. I got all the benifits. I believe you get kicked off at 21 unless enrolled in college and then its 23. Dont know if anything has changed but im pretty sure thats what it is.

    I think the cut off is 21 if not in college because my dad retired when I was 16 and I didn't have to get a new ID card until I turned 21 because it didn't expire until then so I'm assuming if the cut off was 18 it would have expired on my 18th birthday.

    Yes, both DD and DS currently have ID cards - we all went to RAPIDS when DH retired to get new, "retired", IDs. They can keep them to 23 if a full-time student of an accredited institution.

    I had my ID as well as my medical benefits until I turned 23 because I was in school.
