New Veteran Health ID Cards

Veteran Health Identification Card

The VA is issuing a brand new Veterans Health Identification Card (VHIC) to protect Veterans by enhancing security and decreasing the possibility of identity theft.

Friday, April 4, 2014

The VA is issuing a brand new Veterans Health Identification Card (VHIC) to protect Veterans by enhancing security and decreasing the possibility of identity theft.

Advantages of the new VHIC include:

  • No Social Security Number on the Card
  • Personalized Card to Include: Branch of Service, Status and Certain Awards
  • Braille Accessible
  • Meets National Standards
  • Displays Important VA Phone Numbers

No action is needed if you already have a Veteran ID Card (VIC) with photo. VA will automatically mail you a free replacement card.  All we ask is to make sure we have your current mailing address.

Veterans will start seeing the new cards in the mail starting in April.  It may take up to 3 months for the VA to replace all the cards. Once you receive your new card, destroy your old VIC as you would a credit card by cutting or shredding it.

If you have any questions or need to update your mailing address, you can contact our Eligibility Office at (909) 825-7084 ext. 5312.
