To get started, all a Veteran needs to do is bring in their DD214/Discharge form along with a valid photo ID to the Veteran Services Office in MT. Airy for certification then take that certification to the Register of Deeds Office in Dobson, NC. Veterans who already have their DD214 recorded with the Surry County Register of Deeds still must get it certified with Veteran Services in order to receive the Veterans Discount ID card.
**This certification process is, unfortunately, in place to prevent fraudulent applicants. The reality is we do see people trying to pass other veterans documents as their own for benefits. We are simply making sure that does not happen in this case to disrespect the military and our community in receiving discounts they are not entitled to nor deserve.
Simply present the Veterans Discount ID card to participating merchants to receive the discount. A list of participating merchants can be found by scrolling to the bottom of the Surry County Veterans Services or Register of Deeds homepage and placing your curser over the option that reads "Thank A Veteran" Discount ID Card Program." An option will appear to the right under the heading "Merchant List." Simply click "Merchant List" to view participating businesses along with addresses, discounts, and/or exclusions.
Cards will be issued Monday-Friday 9:00 am - 4:30pm.
Disclaimer: The Surry County Veterans Discount Card is issued for the sole purpose of receiving discounts from participating local merchants. It is not a valid photo ID for determining actual identity or residency. It is NOT issued by the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs. It does not entitle the holder to VA benefits.
