NDI 75 - Record of Service ID Card Superthread
« 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?

Upon my release in1986,I was issued a CF 75 Record of service and identification which looks like a  service ID card.That document was put away and only recently retrieved and eventually it is long expired.I would like to know if this document still exists and if affirmative can it be replaced?
Where should I inquire about replacement

Many Thanks

Going through the site and saw that you never received a reply to your query.  Hope this helps.

This is the (slightly) dated CFAO regarding the CF 75. Para 14b is probably what applies to you.  Here are two links for the most recent form.  If you cannot access them, you could go to any CF orderly room and have them print out the form.

http://armyonline.kingston.mil.ca/SQFT/143000440002230/3C_CF_75_PAGE_202.DOC
http://armyonline.kingston.mil.ca/LFAA/143000440000643/522F1101.DOC

SECTION 1 -- FORMS CF 54 AND CF 75, CERTIFICATES OF SERVICE

DESCRIPTION

2.     Form CF 54 is a certificate signed by the CDS for presentation to each
qualified member.  The document is of a size and quality that is suitable
for framing.

3.     Form CF 75 is a plasticized bilingual card designed to serve as a
convenient record of service and secondarily as a means of identification
to be carried by the recipient.

4.     Service particulars on Forms CF 54 and CF 75 are shown in the official
language requested by the member.

ELIGIBILITY

5.     Effective 31 January 2000, forms CF 54 and CF 75 shall be issued
to a member who has completed 10 or more years service in any component
of the Canadian Forces (CF) or who, at the time of release, was entitled
to an immediate annuity.  The only exception is that these documents will
not be issued to members released under item 1 (misconduct) or 2
(unsatisfactory service).

REQUEST

6.     Subject to paragraph 5, a request for forms CF 54 and CF 75 shall be
made by the releasing unit on the form shown at Appendix 4 in two copies
(original for NDHQ/D Pers A (Director Personnel Administration) and
duplicate for unit personnel records).  It is essential that the detail
inserted on request forms be accurate (see paragraphs 8 and 12) and
typewritten in upper and lower case, as orthographically appropriate.
Appendix 4 shall be completed in accordance with the following guidelines:

     a.   Rank.  Normally, rank shall be set out in Column 1 of Annex A to
          3-2, Ranks and Designation of Ranks.  However, a member may
          elect to use a previous Service rank or present Naval rank, if
          the member commenced the current period of Regular Force service
          on or prior to 31 Jan 68 or is currently authorized to use Naval
          rank in accordance with 3-2.  If the member is eligible and
          so elects, the rank, as set out in Column II, III or IV of Annex
          A to 3-2, as applicable, equivalent to the rank held on
          release or transfer, shall be shown.  Where a member is
          authorized to retain an acting rank on release or transfer, that
          rank shall be considered substantive for the purposes of this
          annex.

     b.   Period of Service.  Only CF service by component or sub-component
          shall be shown.

     c.   Orders and Decorations.  Only orders and decorations authorized
          to immediately follow a member's surname shall be shown in full
          and in the order or precedence set out in 18-12; Orders,
          Decorations and Medals -Precedence.  Where it is determined that
          a member will be entitled to the Canadian Forces Decoration (CD)
          or a clasp to the CD during terminal leave -

          (1)  the CF 54/CF 75 request form shall be annotated accordingly,
               and

          (2)  for members of the Regular Force, the form at Annex A to
               Chapter 18 of A-PM-245-001/FP-001, Personnel Management
               Information System, shall be completed and attached to the
               CF 54/CF 75 request form.  For members of the Reserve Force
               who will be entitled to the CD prior to release, but
               subsequent to submission of the request for form CF 54, the
               form at Annex B to Chapter 18 of A-PM-245-001/FP-Z01,
               Personnel Management Information System Reserve Force, shall
               be completed and attached to the CF 54/CF 75 request form.

     d.   Address on Release/Transfer (AOR/AOT).  Normally, the AOR/AOT for
          Regular Force personnel shall be shown on the CF 54/CF 75 request
          form.  However, in circumstances where confirmation of an AOR/AOT
          would unduly delay dispatch of the form to NDHQ for processing,
          this section of the form may be left blank, and updated by future
          advice as stated in paragraph 9(b) below.  When the AOR/AOT is
          shown, it is imperative that the address be complete with postal
          code.  (Publications for this purpose may be obtained from postal
          authorities.)


SUBMISSION

7.     No later than 45 days prior to the commencement of terminal leave for
the Regular Force, or 45 days prior to release for the Reserve Force, the
following documents shall be forwarded to NDHQ/D Pers A as applicable:

     a.   the original copy of the completed CF 54/CF 75 request form
          (Appendix 4 to this annex);

     b.   two signed blank CF 75 forms;

     c.   one photograph (no larger than 37 mm X 37 mm) taken within the
          last five years (do not staple); and

     d.   the original copy of the form mentioned in paragraph 6(c)(2)
          above.

8.     Normally, the submission required by paragraph 7 shall be made
subsequent to release approval and when the effective date of release is
firm.  However, when it is known or anticipated that these conditions would
delay the submission beyond the 45-day stipulation, the CF 54/CF 75 request
form may be dispatched showing the projected effective date of release, if
there is reasonable assurance that:

     a.   the release will be approved; and

     b.   the calendar year in which the member is projected to be
          effectively released will not change.

AMENDMENT

9.     Amendments to detail displayed on the CF 54/CF 75 request form for
Regular Force members shall be made by message to NDHQ EXPORT OTTAWA/D Pers
A except as follows:

     a.   Effective Date of Release.  Amendment is required only when there
          is a change in the calendar year of release.

     b.   AOR/AOT.  Where the address was not previously shown, amendment
          is required only if advice cannot be immediately made by means of
          the Release Notification Message.




ISSUE

10.    Forms CF 54 and CF 75, Certificates of Service.  Normally, forms CF 54
and CF 75 will be forwarded by NDHQ to the releasing base or unit in
sufficient time for presentation prior to the member's departure (see
note).  In exceptional circumstances, where processing time will not permit
unit presentation prior to the member's departure on terminal leave, the
following will apply:

     a.   Where the member's AOR/AOT is not within the geographical
          location of the releasing base or unit, forms CF 54 and CF 75
          will be forwarded to the member's AOR/AOT.

     b.   Where the member's AOR/AOT is within the geographical location of
          the releasing base or unit, forms CF 54 and CF 75 will be
          forwarded:

          (1)  to the releasing base or unit if so requested by the
               member's CO or by the member in the appropriate section of
               the CF 54/CF 75 request form, or

          (2)  if unit presentation was not requested, to the member's
               AOR/AOT.

Note -It is essential that the good and faithful service of a member
departing a component of the CF on release be recognized by a formal
presentation of the Certificate of Service, form CF 54.  Where practicable,
and prior to the presentation, this certificate should be suitably framed
from stocks that are available through the Canadian Forces Supply System.

REPLACEMENT/REISSUE

11.    Requests for replacement or reissue of form CF 54 or form CF 75 shall
be directed to NDHQ/D Pers A.


12.    Care must be exercised by the member and the releasing unit when
completing the CF 54/CF 75 request form to prevent avoidable errors.  If a
member requests a new certificate because of an avoidable error in the
original, it will be produced at the member's expense as follows:

     a.   CF 54 -$9.00; and

     b.   CF 75 -$7.00.

13.    Requests for replacement form CF 54 and CF 75 as a result of loss must
be accompanied by a Statutory Declaration or a Statement completed in the
presence of a Commissioner of Oaths (in most provinces any commissioned
Regular Force officer, or a city official) giving full particulars of the
loss.  A certified cheque or money order in the appropriate amount (see
paragraph 12) made payable to the Receiver General for Canada is also
required.

14.    Depending on whether a member is released from a component of the CF
or transfers to another component or sub-component of the Reserve Force,
the following will apply regarding the inclusion of an expiry date on form
CF 75:

     a.   For personnel who transfer to a sub-component of the Reserve
          Force on completion of Regular Force or active Reserve Force
          service, their form CF 75 will contain an expiry date of five
          years from the date of transfer.  These personnel are entitled to
          a new card at the time of release from the Reserve Force to show
          their amended total service.  Furthermore, where such service
          exceeds the expiry date, the member is entitled to an updated
          card at the time of expiry.  This entitlement continues for every
          complete five-year period until the member's final release from
          the CF.  The onus is on the recipient, to make application
          through applicable channels for the updated certificate prior to
          reaching the expiry or release date.

     b.   Personnel who are released from a component of the CF will not
          have an expiry date included on their form CF 75, as the member's
          record of service shown on form CF 75 will remain valid.

15.    Where additional service has been accumulated in another CF component
subsequent to the issuing of the original forms CF 54/CF 75, either or both
certificates will be reissued without cost to the member.  In these
circumstances, the original certificates, together with unit verification
of additional service, a current photograph no larger than 37 mm by 37 mm,
and any other particulars that need changing, must be forwarded to D Pers A
to initiate the reissue of new forms CF 54/CF 75.

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.

I don't believe you are entitled to anything beyond your certificate.

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.

According to Marine Atlantic you need at least one of the fol for the special fare:

Eligibility
 For the purpose of this promotion Canadian Forces personnel are defined as active or retired members of the army, navy, air force or reserves.

 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.


 The Canadian Forces Appreciation Fare 2011 is designed to thank current and past members of our armed forces by providing them with a discount when travelling for personal reasons.

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!

Thanks:)
