Use DoD ID Number and Not Your SSN on Letters to the Board

Posted on Updated on

Live and learn…

You no longer use your social security number on letters to promotion boards. The middle of this webpage at PERS says:

Also, you MUST use your FULL 10 digit DoD identification number on your cover letter and any document that does not already contain it.

Here is the updated sample letter to a board from PERS.

        I Just submitted my package for E7 board yesterday. The NAVADMIN states use your SSN on attachments but it also references the 220/19 ESSBD. The ESSBD uses the DOD ID number and thats what i went with. I had a couple of CPOs tell me that was wrong but I feel based on the i formation, I submitted it correctly..
