What is the Veterans Identification Card (VIC)?
The Veterans Identification Card Act of 2015 was enacted on July 20, 2015. The Act requires VA to issue an identification card to Veterans upon their request. The Veterans Identification Card (VIC) will not take the place of a healthcare enrollment card, a Choice Card, or any additional identification card that confers VA benefits upon the cardholder - the card would simply confirm Veteran status, and is intended to be used to obtain discounts from retailers.
