Air Force Aid Society is offering $500 grants to retirees and surviving spouses adversely affected by the cold weather snap. Contact your closest active-duty installation Airman & Family Readiness Center for assistance; however, if you’re located more than 50 miles from any installation, you should call the National American Red Cross number at 877-272-7337.

TRICARE beneficiaries can contact their local TRICARE network pharmacy to determine if they may schedule an appointment to receive the COVID-19 vaccine as supplies are distributed in their area. To locate a local TRICARE network pharmacy, visit https://militaryrx.express-scripts.com/find-pharmacy. TRICARE beneficiaries can receive the COVID-19 vaccine at non-network pharmacies -- at no charge -- as supplies are distributed in their area. Currently, under the federal response, pharmacies are prohibited from balance billing patients for COVID-19 vaccines.

Retiree and certain family member identification cards that expire on or after Jan. 1, 2020, will remain valid through June 30, 2021. This extension does not apply to children turning age 21. If your child is attending college full time, contact the nearest Uniformed Services ID card issuing site. For secondary dependency information for incapacitated children, visit the Defense Finance and Accounting Service website at https://www.dfas.mil/ or call Air Force Secondary Dependency at 317-212-8049. More information is available on a special trifold. For a listing of all sites and appointment information, visit https://idco.dmdc.osd.mil/idco/#/.
