Veterans ID Card
Butler County Veterans ID Card

The Butler County Recorder’s Office is pleased to announce a new initiative that will benefit our United States Military Veterans.

In conjunction with the Butler County Veteran’s Services, Butler County Veterans are able to obtain a Veteran Identification Card from the Recorder's Office. This Card will display a picture of the Veteran, as well as, Service Branch, Address, and Military Discharge Recordation information. As always, there is no cost to record the Original or a Certified Copy of your Military Discharge, or to obtain certified copies of your Military discharge. This card can be carried in your wallet and replace the need to carry the discharge document to verify proof of military service.

Rest assured, military discharge papers are kept in a secure area not accessible to the public, and will only release to authorized parties. Please refer to the Ohio Revised Code section 317.24 for more information about safeguarding your DD214 in the Butler County Recorder’s Office.

In order to receive the new Veteran ID Card, a Veteran must record the Original or a Certified Copy of your Military Discharge with the Butler County Recorder’s Office, and show TWO of the following identifications: (per ORC-317.241), which at least 1 must bear a photograph of the individual. 
· An original or a certified birth certificate.
· An identification card issued by the United States department of veterans affairs.

· A social security card.
· A license or permit to carry a concealed weapon issued by this state or any other state.

· An identification card issued by this state or any other state that bears a photograph of the individual identified.
· A valid passport that bears a photograph of the individual to whom the passport was issued.
· A United States armed forces discharge record.

ID Cards will only be issued between the hours of 8:00 am and 3:00 pm. The Cards will be valid for ten years and there will be no fee to obtain a Veteran ID Card. The Veteran ID Card can be obtained at the Butler County Recorder’s Office:
