The Department of Defense is now beginning to address the question of extension of benefits and issuance of ID cards to same-sex domestic partners of Military Service members, which commenced with the release of Secretary Panetta's Memorandum dated 11 February 2013, Subject: Extending Benefits to Same-Sex Domestic Partners of Military Members. The Memorandum directs the Military Services to make every effort to ensure that eligible same-sex domestic partners and their families receive these benefits by 31 August 2013, but in no case after 1 October 2013.

Implementation of these benefit changes will require substantial policy revision, training, and in the case of identification cards, possible upgrades to DEERS/RAPIDS. DMDC will notify SSM/VOs prior to the issuance of any DoD ID card conveying benefits to same-sex domestic partners. If you have any questions regarding the policies for same-sex domestic partners, please contact your Service Project Officer.
