  • Mypay before ID?

    I have my AKO account setup but I can't create a mypay account... for whatever reason it is the system's fault because it won't let me and I'm going back and forth with their assistance. My question is that do I require a mypay account to get my military ID? And does it matter where I get my ID from? I live in WI but there's a navy station that issues ID's that is closer than the nearest one in WI.

    It wouldnt let me create one until the system was told I was getting paid. What I mean is, I went to drill then the Tuesday afterward, I was able to create one. It helps to have a CAC when trying to set one up, but I dont think its a requirement.

      You have to be in the system for 30-45 days before you can set one up. But you can still get paid without one, you'll just get your check and ELS in the mail until you set it up. And no, all you need is your AKO set up to get your ID. And I believe that you can go to any base that has a DEERS on it.
