i'm within 2 weeks of retiring and am starting to think of some really interesting things! Like, when i get my retired civilian ID will it still have my same DoD ID number so i can continue to get TSA precheck using my ID at the airport? Anyone who knows the answer i'd appreciate it so i know if i need to go get an official "paid for" TSA Precheck card now! thanks!

My retired military ID has the same number as when active. The number is no longer good for the pre-check benefit. I retired in '16 and haven't had the precheck on a boarding pass since. Thinking about paying the $85.

That's interesting. the number is in the system for all my airline accounts... so i wonder how they would know that i'm retired? did something happen to your accounts that they no longer had that number in the system? i just am not sure how American Airlines for example would know i retired... thanks for the input!

When you check in, the airline runs your pre-check number to TSA -- you only get pre-check on your boarding pass if TSA sends back an okay.

I am curious as to why you would have an ID card in retirement?

Is this agency specific?

I have never heard a retired postal employee talk about an ID card. In fact, management is not concerned that an ID card is expired.

Yeah, DoD.

CAC (Common Access Card).
Military, Civilian, and certain Contractors are issued.
It has bar codes and an integrated chip.

When Military or Civilians retire they are issued a Retired CAC.
Still has the bar codes but there is no integrated chip.

The bar code is something a gate guard can scan for site access to the gym or maybe the PX.
But without the integrated chip you can't stick the card in a computer and start stealing secrets.

Thanks ji_ for that explantion. it makes sense. i guess i'd better haul myself down to get a 'civilian' TSA precheck... i have gotten used to the no line thing! And yes DoD gives retired ID cards if you ask for them.

You can print a Federal Employee Retirement Card from Services Online. I carry mine everywhere, don't leave home without it!

I'm retired military and a Navy civilian.

The same ID number is used on both my retired ID and my Navy CAC.

Can I continue using it for TSA-Pre after I retire again in two years?

Not sure, but my retired military ID with the same number doesn't expire till 2024.

It won't hurt to try. All they can say is no.

TRW - your retired military ID has an expiration date? I retired from the Army December 2011 and my expiration date shows " INDEF".

My original 1998 retired ID card with "INDEF" on it was confiscated at the Langley AFB main gate in 2015 when the security forces portable barcode reader couldn't "read" it.

Supposedly, it was socialized through various sources that older military retiree ID cards without a barcode would be no good after a certain date....yadda, yadda, yadda. I guess I didn't get the word.

Anyway, my new retired ID has an expiration date and TWO bar codes. The expiration date sorta kinda coincides with the month I turn 65 if that possibly means anything.

With the recent change of having to scan your ID card at commissaries now, this has been a good thing, as I use them at least once a month.

Edit: Its a benefits thing. See link below:
