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 we need to review your verification request, our 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 .gov address) when prompted during online registration. Our 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 our 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 we 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 our system after your membership has been approved. We do not store your documents in our system!
Verification via DMDC
If you are active military or served in the military after 1984, GovX can automatically verify your status with the Defense Manpower Data Center (DMDC for short). This check happens automatically in our system and is the fastest way to verify your status.
