NDI 75 - Record of Service ID Card
« on: August 15, 2005, 03:14:54 »
I have a really simple, and really dumb, question.

How do I go about getting a Veteran's ID Card.

I'm totally frustrated searching both the DND and VA websites for information.

Can anyone help?

You should have received it on release.  The release clerk here filled out the forms and sent them in for me.  Th actual card is called a "NDI 75: Record of Service Identification Card".  I actually didn't receive mine for about 6 months after release.

The card requires a photograph, and the appropriate forms.  I would suggest going to your nearest Unit/Base and enlisting the aid of the clerks, the unsung heroes of many of lifes little aggravations.

Good luck to you!

Lance, I have never recieved one, nor was I ever told I could get one. Is this a "newer" thing than when I "booked" it? [88]

Record of Service card

If you are honourably releasing after 10 or more years of CF service and are entitled to an immediate annuity, you will now receive an NDI 75 ROS card at the time of your release.

As a retired member, you can use the plasticized card as a record of service and as a means of identification. It's a continuing link between you and the organization, and can be used to access DND/CF recreational facilities IAW local procedures.

If you elect retirement leave, you remain a CF member until that leave expires. For this period of retirement leave you will be issued a temporary ID card (NDI 10) that will expire when your retirement leave expires. By that time, you will have received your permanent ROS card.

If you do not elect retirement leave, you cease to be a CF member the day of your release. During your final release interview, you will turn in your CF ID card and receive a temporary ROS card, which will include your surname, given name, rank and length of service, a photo from your personal file, and an expiry date six months after your release date. The temporary ROS card will be plasticized by your Release Cell. You must destroy this card when you receive your permanent ROS card.

You may direct questions about the ROS cardâ ”temporary and permanentâ ”to Maj Wendy Barlow (DMCARM 4 Rel & Pension) at (613) 992-1198.

It's certainly not new, although the format has changed.  I saw one that was issued in 1968, so they've been around for a while.

I never received a temporary card, so that part is new.

Thanks for the intel, Michael!

This is sort of related , close enough that I didn't believe that it warranted a new threat. 

Why aren't there ID cards issued for the Supplementary Reserve?  It seems to me that if a person has signed on to the "in case of war break glass" brigade there should be some sort of identity card associated with it.

Anybody else have any thoughts on this one?

It may be a recent thing. I retired in Dec 2005 and received one. All it does is record your name, rank on retiring, your SN, the number of years served and that I was honourably discharged.

Somewhat off topic, but: Does anyone know how to replace a damaged Record of Service Identification Card?

(That's what mine is called - it was issued in 1997 and, as other have said, has my photo, full name, last rank, service number and a serial number on the front and my years of service, release status, force component and signature on the back.)

It is ill that men should kill one another in seditions, tumults and wars; but it is worse to bring nations to such misery, weakness and baseness
as to have neither strength nor courage to contend for anything; to have nothing left worth defending and to give the name of peace to desolation.

This may help, but I am not sure.  The new card is a NDI 75 and would probably be issued through Pass Control.  Here is the CFSU Ottawa Military Police site:  http://www.cfsuo.forces.gc.ca/ope/mpc-cpm/cu-cn-eng.asp

 I served in the canadian military for  only 3 years. Are there any card besides the NDI 75, or CF 75  which require 10 years of service to get that i qualify for.  My situation is with marine atlantic whom has a promotion on where they are giving a discount for military personel, veterans, etc. They are requiring both of these cards, and the vac card of which i have neither. I only have my certificate of service with the date i joined and the date of honorable release. Is there anyone out there that can help me out. Thanks, 8141 chuck.

 An eligible individual must possess one of the following pieces of identification at the time of booking a reservation and must also present it at the time of travel:

• an identification card for the Department of National Defence (cards NDI 20, NDI 30, NDI 50, DND 2262);

• a Record of Service Card (NDI 75 or CF-75) or certificate of discharge (together with photo identification) for retired military; or

• a Veterans Affairs Canada (VAC) Benefit Card for veterans.

In addition to that.. I was wondering if anyone knew if members with less than 10 years service who are 3a, or 3b medical released - are they issued any sort of photo id  - in comparison to the CF 75? I was told in passing once that it was possible to be issued a CF 75 with less than 10 years service if you are  released under 3a, or 3b medical release, and were Reg F.

I have looked every where to support that information, but have had no luck. If anyone knows the answer please let me know!

I'm in a similar boat. As I understand the definition of veteran including any member who completed MOC training, I believe I qualify having served for a year following 3 years training and then on Supplementary Reserve for another 8 years or so.  However, NDI 75 is for 10 years of service, not including Supplementary. Were you able to find another form of card, 8141 chuck?
