Veteran Identification Cards

Veteran Identification cards are issued by the Vital Records Office between the hours of 8:30 a.m. and 4:30 p.m., Monday through Friday at:

Washtenaw County Vital Records
200 N. Main Street
Suite 100
Ann Arbor, MI 48107
Phone: 734-222-6720

To Apply

The Veteran photo identification (ID) card is available to Washtenaw County residents, only.

Appear in-person at the Vital Records office and provide:

  • Original Military Discharge Papers such as DD-214 (unless currently on file with our office) - must show Honorable Discharge or equivalent status
  • Photo Identification (such as Michigan Driver’s license or State ID card)
  • $10 fee - Cash, check, credit (Visa, MasterCard, Discover, only), debit


Many businesses offer Veterans a discount as a way to express gratitude for their service to our country. However, the Veteran must be able to show proof. Veterans are given military discharge certificates, or "DD-214" forms. These are very large forms that do not fit in their wallet and can easily be lost. 

A Veteran ID Card is an easy-to-carry proof of service in the armed forces.
