There are several ways you can verify your status to get approved for a GovX ID. The verification methods depend on your affiliation. You only need ONE verification method to be approved.
Most verifications only take a minute to complete online. However, if for any reason GovX ID needs to review your verification request, their friendly team will work with you to get you through the process as quickly as possible.
Verification via Email
If you have a valid work email address, you can use it to get approved for GovX. Simply enter your work email (like a .mil or .govaddress) when prompted during online registration. The GovX system will either auto-verify the address and send you a confirmation email to ensure the address is valid.
Verification via Document Upload
You can upload any document that reasonably supports your status into the GovX online registration form. This could include a DD214, department ID card, pay stub, award certificate, benefits stub, or another appropriate document. The eligible documents depend on the affiliation you're verifying for and GovX will supply you with a complete list during the registration process.
When uploading a document, you may redact any sensitive information like membership numbers, driver's license numbers, or social security numbers. Please note that any documents uploaded for verification are instantly removed from the GovX system after your membership has been approved. GovX does not store your documents in their system!
Verification via DMDC
If you are active military or served in the military after1984, GovX can automatically verify your status with the Defense Manpower DataCenter (DMDC for short). This check happens automatically in the GovX system and is the fastest way to verify your status.
DMDC stands for Defense Manpower Data Center. The DMDC is a database to catalog the history of personnel in the military on behalf of the Department of Defense. The DMDC processes more than 5 million data requests each day.
