Installation Access

Eligible surviving spouses can have unescorted access to military installations so they can receive benefits they are entitled to by law or policy. Next of kin to a covered member of the Army may also access military installations in accordance with the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) of Fiscal Year (FY) 2018. See Section 626.

If eligible next of kin do not have a military ID card, they will need the Army Survivor Access Card. With this card, next of kin can access services and attend events and memorials. To get or renew a Survivor Access Card, complete the APPLICATION FOR SURVIVOR ACCESS CARD (IMCOM Form 44)  and submit the form to a survivor outreach services coordinator. This is the first step to getting a card.
