Apply for the Veterans Identification Card (VIC)
How do I apply for the Veterans Identification Card (VIC)?
Veterans must log into VA.gov or AccessVA.gov to apply for a VIC. Veterans may also click the following link to go to sign in page, https://www.va.gov/records/get-veteran-id-cards/apply.
You do not need to request this card if you have one of these:
- Veterans Health Identification Card (VHIC), or
- Department of Defense (DoD) Identification Card (Common Access Card (CAC) or Uniformed Services ID Card, or
- State-issued ID (Driver's license) with a Veteran designation or a state-issued Veteran ID Card. Check with your state to see if they issue a Veteran ID Card.
You can use any of these cards to get the same discounts. If you already have one of them, you don't need a VIC, but you can still apply for it if you'd like.
If you don't have one of these cards, you should request a Veteran ID Card.
