The design of the cards is not finished, VA spokesman Curtis Cashour told this news outlet. But veterans may still apply for the new ID through a website — vets.gov — and clicking on “Apply for Printed Veteran ID-Card” in a blue section near the bottom of the page.
The website allows veterans to create a sign-in account if they don’t have one already.

Veterans should receive the card within 60 days, the VA said. Delivery status may be checked at vets.gov, and a digital version of the card will be available by mid-December, the department said.
VA is not charging veterans a fee for the card, a spokesman said. Office Depot is donating the printing and shipping of the ID cards once the VA approves an application, Cashour told this news outlet.
