Keep Your DEERS Information Up To Date
It’s essential to update and verify your information in DEERS anytime you have a QLE. This is especially true during the summer moving season. After you arrive at a new duty station or location, update your information in DEERS. Your Social Security number (SSN) and the SSN of each of your covered family members must be included in DEERS for your TRICARE coverage to be accurate.
You have several options for updating and verifying DEERS information. You can make changes in person, by phone, online or by mail.
