BOLLING AFB, D.C. -- After a policy change on April 1, visitors are no longer required to provide their Social Security number on entry authorization lists for events held on Bolling.

"This is in an effort to minimize the security concerns associated with providing Social Security numbers," said Maj. Richard W. DeMouy, 11th Security Forces Squadron commander.

Guests may use their state driver's license number or state issued identification card number in lieu of their SSN. Sponsors must supply the following information for all guests:

● Guest's name (last, first, middle initial)
● The name of state that issued the license or identification card
● The driver's license or identification card's number
● Date of expiration

"The option of which form of identification to provide, be it a Social Security number or a driver's license, should be left to the individual guest," said Major DeMouy. "However, they must provide one or the other to gain access to the base."

The sponsor is responsible for collecting the required information and providing it to the Joint Visitors Center at least three business days prior to the event.

The new policy is now in effect and will be incorporated in the next re-write of the base-access instruction. All other base-access procedures remain the same.

"We hope this added flexibility will improve our ability to serve you and reduce the concerns with providing a Social Security number," said Major DeMouy.
