Chester County Veteran ID & Discount Card Processing

Thursday, July 29, 2021

Veterans and guests will be able to shop a community yard sale in the Coatesville V.F.W. parking lot prior to exploring the facility and taking advantage of the Chester County Recorder of Deeds' Military Discharge and County Veteran ID & Discount Programs without having to travel to the Chester County Government office. Veterans who record their discharge document(s) on-site will then be eligible to immediately receive a county-issued Photo ID card. A collection of roughly 100 Chester County businesses partner with the Recorder of Deeds to offer various discounts and specials to veterans who present their County ID Card. The Recorder of Deeds does not charge Veterans a fee for either of these services. Veterans should bring: 1) DD-214 (original or photocopy) or other military discharge document(s), and 2) a current form of Photo ID (i.e. driver's license, state-issued ID, U.S. Passport).

Why is this helpful? If a fire, natural disaster, relocation or other event results in the loss of your original document(s), the Recorder of Deeds will have its image stored in perpetuity,* so Veterans and their families can easily request certified replacement copies from our office at a later time for Veteran's status or benefits. Veterans who resided in another county/state when they were discharged may have had their DD-214 recorded in that county/state, however, it is recommended that the veteran also record the DD-214 in the county where the veteran currently resides.

Post #287 is located behind the Coatesville Police Department with plenty of parking.
