Updating deers information
You must first register with the Defense Enrollment Eligibility Reporting System (DEERS) in order to receive medical coverage and other benefits.DEERS is a digital database for military servicemembers, their families, and others beneficiaries and dependents, which allows them to utilize TRICARE and other benefits such as entrance to commissaries, and other uniformed services benefits, etc.Address modifications can be completed by any registered family member.
Have birth certificate (or hospital certificate if child is less than 3 months old).
If the DEERS database is not properly updated, you will face problem in getting your TRICARE benefits in a timely manner so it is imperative that if any life changes such as an address change, re-enlistment, divorce, birth of a child, or any other life changing event occurs, it will appear in your digital information files.
You can confirm your DEERS data with regional TRICARE managed care representatives, at a local TRICARE service center, or your nearby Uniformed Services personnel office, or wherever you get your identity card.
United States National Guard members and Reserve military servicemembers who are on active duty are automatically registered with TRICARE.
Whenever your address or the registration status of any family member or any other relevant data changes, it is your responsibility to update the changes in the DEERS database.
