We’re excited about the response that we have received to the Veterans Identification Card (VIC) program. If your request is approved, you can expect to receive your VIC in the mail within 14 business days. The envelope will contain 2 printed Veteran ID cards. For requests that have not been approved, we will continue to process them in the order that they were received. To ensure that you receive your card, please verify that your mailing address is correct.
