SheerID Military Verification FAQ


Who is eligible for this offer?

This offer is available to military personnel who have served or are currently serving in the United States Armed Forces.


How do I get verified?

If not instantly verified, SheerID will compare the information provided in the uploaded document(s) against the information entered in the verification form. To ensure a speedy and successful verification, please pay attention to how you enter your information on the form so that it will match what is seen on the document(s). For example, enter your first and last name on the form as it appears on your military document(s).


If your last name has changed since your military document was issued, please upload a government-issued document along with your military document that shows your current last name.


What kind of document(s) do I upload if asked?

You’ll need to upload official government-issued documentation that shows your:

      First name

      Last name

      Branch of service

      Current military status


A hint about choosing your military status: Please select the status that is most accurately represented by your documentation.


I just uploaded a document. When will I hear back with results of my request?

Documents are reviewed in the order received. You will be contacted via email within the next 20 minutes with additional details regarding your verification request. Please check your spam/junk folder if you do not see an email in your inbox. The email will let you know if you’ve been successfully verified or if additional information is needed to complete your verification.


My military status (or branch) is not an option. What do I select?

If your military status (or branch) is not listed as an option to select on the verification form, then you are not eligible for the offer.


My sponsor is deceased, am I eligible?

If 1) you are a currently registered dependent, and 2) you have the options “Military Family Member,” “Spouse,” and/or “Dependent” available for selection under “Military Status,” then you are eligible for the offer. If those options are not available, you will need to contact the retailer or organization presenting the offer to ask if you’re eligible and how best to proceed.
