Veteran Identification Cards

Summit County Fiscal Officer Kristen M. Scalise CPA, CFE is proud to offer the veterans of Summit County a wallet-size identification card. The veteran identification card serves as an alternative to the Armed Forces Discharge record known as a DD Form 214, or DD214. There are great advantages to carrying a veteran identification card:

  • It is similar in shape and appearance to a driver’s license, so it fits comfortably in a wallet
  • The card can be used to prove your veteran status and verify your identification
  • Retail establishments will accept it to receive veteran discounts and incentives
  • The magnetic strip on the back of the card can be read by card readers with just a swipe

Summit County veterans can purchase their identification card in-person during regular business hours at the Summit County Fiscal Office, Recorder Division, 4th floor, 175 S. Main St., Akron 44308. The fee for a card is $1. Veterans must be able to show a valid DD214 and two of the following forms of identification (one of which must contain a photograph):

  • An original or certified birth certificate
  • An identification card issued by the United State department of veterans affairs
  • A United States military identification card
  • A social security card
  • A license or permit to carry a concealed weapon issued by this state or any other state
  • A motor vehicle operator’s license issued by this state or any other state that bears a photograph of the licensee
  • An identification card issued by the state or any other state that bears a photograph of individual identified
  • A valid passport that bears a photograph of the individual to whom the passport was issued
