Veteran ID Program

Note: We are currently accepting walk-ins and appointments for Veterans to record Discharge Paperwork and/or acquire Photo ID cards. You are required to wear a mask upon entering the building and during your visit, except when your photo is being taken. Please visit our office or call (610) 344-6330 to make an appointment or with any questions or concerns. You can also email us at [email protected].

The Chester County Veteran ID & Discount program provides photo identification cards to Chester County Veterans who record their DD-214 with the office. Veterans who have already recorded their DD-214 may come in to get their photo taken for their Veteran ID Card. Chester County businesses are encouraged to offer our veterans discounts in appreciation of their service to our country and will be listed on this webpage and promoted through other various means.

The Recorder of Deeds, in conjunction with other public officials and business leaders, will also hold events in Chester County to provide our veterans with local opportunities to get a photo taken for their ID Card. More information on these special events will be posted on the Recorder’s website. For more information, please call the Recorder’s office at 610-344-6330 or email us at [email protected].

On Wednesday, August 19, 2020, officials from the Recorder of Deeds office had the honor and privilege to deliver military-printed masks to our county veterans at the Pennsylvania Southeastern Veterans' Center (SEVC) in Spring City. The masks were handmade in the United States, gifted by an anonymous donor, and vary in size and designs relating to the US Army, Marines, Navy and Air Force. Our Veterans' efforts and patriotism have helped our country to remain the free and unconquerable United States of America. We continue to rely on their sense of duty and dedication during these difficult times knowing that their previous determination to serve contains the example we must all follow to maintain and protect our great nation. Due to health and safety concerns, this event was not open to the public and dedicated staff members at the SEVC accepted the masks on the residents’ behalf and distributed them following the event. The event served in conjunction with ongoing development of the Veteran ID & Discount program.
