Retirees who are flying on a space-available basis need to know that passenger service agents are no longer using Social Security numbers so passengers will need a Department of Defense identification number, or DODID number. Retirees using space-A travel will need to get a new ID card with the DODID number on it. In the interim, retirees can create an account in milConnect and locate their DODID number (which will already be in DEERS) by viewing their profile information. They can print out the page with their DODID number on it to use, along with their current ID card, until they get a new ID card reflecting the DODID number. For more information on space-available travel, visit the dedicated Air Mobility Command website.
Air Force Retiree Services cannot assist Guard and Reserve members who are not yet receiving retirement pay. Guard and Reserve Airmen awaiting retirement pay should call the Total Force Service Center at 800-525-0102 and select Option 3 or 4 to be connected with the Air Reserve Personnel Center, or visit https://www.arpc.afrc.af.mil/retirement/.
