browser problems lead to lots of errors. Need to try Chrome of Firefox to get by the "Certificate" issue. On line appointments function well, once you get past the false "security" issues. Have tried walk-in in several occasions, long waits, but must arrive early. Once was able to make appointments on line, everything goes smoothly. People working the cards are polite, efficient, and friendly. Have been going there since it was an Air Force installation. better service than at FT. HOOD.

I am an active duty military spouse. My wife was formerly in the reserve and now turned active duty. It is a good thing I don't live on base because of the following: My ID was taken from me at the gate a week ago, my spouse is gone for 6 months, and I can no longer access any thing requiring the ID and cannot get an ID. There is absolutely no need for a pwr of atty when my info is in DEERS and I have all the necessary doc to prove our marriage. I am contacting Congress and the White House.

I arrived at 3:00 to get a ID for wife; drove 150 miles to get here. Told couldn’t “fit” me in. This is the worst customer service I’ve ever seen

Cannot reach the appointment site via internet. Cannot reach a person on the phone number listed. Mail box is constantly "full" and referral "cannot be made to this number". Time for supervision to step up?

still don't answer the phone, still can't log on to the scheduling site, I hate dealing with this incompetence. No better than the VA.

Have been trying for a week to get onto the appointment scheduler. Each time I try get message that this is an unsecured site. Tried to call but the phone only provides a recording with no information about getting appointments. This seems to be an ongoing problem. Needs to be corrected.

The RAPIDS Appointment Scheduler site has a security problem. The Certificates are not correct and that can compromise personal information. The link to it is broken also. It seems the only way to get things done is as a walk in which probably accounts for the high walk in volume.Please update security certificates on the web site and repair the broken link. It will cut down on walk ins.

This office wouldn't accept a recently expired military ID as the second form of verification ID. This is specifically noted as acceptable by CAC.mil in their Pre-Arrival Checklist pdf at the bottom of their page. I went to another nearby DEERS office and they were more than willing to use the expired ID for the second ID along with a current drivers license as the primary ID.

The RAPIDS Appointment Scheduler link does not work. It's been weeks and not been able to make an appointment. Do you know when it will be fixed???
posted almost 2 years ago
Make an appointment 6 weeks in advance, or be prepared to wait 4-5 hours as a walk in. People are friendly.

Only the 1st 60 walk-ins of the day are accepted in. Building opens @ 7AM & office opens @ 7:30. Amount of walk-ins may vary if there are a lot of appointments scheduled for the day. I called to get an appointment 7/17 and they are booked till Sept! I guess we will wake up & drive there on military time to get our things done. Its the military, way get the day started before the rooster crows! This veteran's family will be taken care of. All it takes if a little research before making the drive

They don't answer the phone and the online appointments link doesn't always work. You can't call ahead for an appointment or to make sure they are open. You have to go there to find out. We traveled one hour and fifteen minutes today and arrived 4 hours before closing. A sign said they were not taking any more walk-ins that day.There is nobody there to answer questions or help. Our daughter remains uninsured until we get her ID card renewed, but can't do so. Not a helpful place for veterans.

Friendly people but unless you have a reservation, plan to sit and wait and wait and wait to be seen.
