Be Sure to Keep Your DEERS Enrollment Updated!
Whatever your military status, your registration in the
Defense Enrollment Eligibility Reporting System (DEERS) is
especially necessary with respect to
establishing your TRICARE eligibility.
Without your enrollment in DEERS or
an enrollment with the correct information,
beneficiaries could find their coverage has lapsed,
leaving problems with TRICARE claims.
Not updating DEERS also hinders your
healthcare team's ability to contact you.
Updating DEERS is very easy and
subsequent updates to the medical information systems
happen almost instantaneously.
DEERS updates should be made every time you
reenlist, transfer, have a change in your dependents' status
(marriage, divorce, or new child),
move or change your phone number.
For changes to information like address,
e-mail or phone number, servicemembers can
