* Processing and procedures identified below are specific to DFAS Applicants only. If you are not a DFAS applicant please check with your owning/prospective Human Resources or Security Office for guidance on their suitability and security review process.
MANY OFFICES EITHER ARE CLOSED OR REQUIRE APPOINTMENTS FOR FINGERPRINTING DUE TO COVID-19. IT IS THEREFORE RECOMMENDED THAT YOU CONTACT THE FINGERPRINTING LOCATION PRIOR TO YOUR ARRIVAL.
For convenience, we highly recommend fingerprinting at a DFAS site. Contact information for each DFAS site is provided in the table below.
If using a DFAS site is not feasible, complete an internet search to locate fingerprinting sites/agencies near you. Your first choice should be a federal or state government agency, local law enforcement agency, or a Veterans Administration (VA) facility (such as a VA Hospital) that will provide "courtesy fingerprints."
• There is no cost to be fingerprinted at a DFAS site. Some law enforcement agencies may charge you a fee to take your fingerprints. This fee is not reimbursable.
• Do not pay a third party agency to run a FBI/Criminal History report for you. We cannot use a third party report and you will incur unnecessary costs.
You are responsible for contacting the agency you choose to determine whether they can take your fingerprints using the SF-87 fingerprint card, the FD-258 fingerprint card or transmit fingerprints electronically.
• If the answer is “Yes,” you may use this location to have your fingerprints taken.
• If the answer is “No,” you must find another location.
If your fingerprints are taken and transmitted electronically, the location may need the following codes:
• SON: DD26
• SOI: DD26
• OPAC: 00006551
In all cases, you must bring valid identification (unexpired state ID and/or unexpired photo ID). Check with the fingerprinting agency for identification requirements.
You may request a fingerprint card from the DFAS Personnel Security Office if the agency you choose requires that you provide your own fingerprint card (SF87). Ensure that your request includes your home address or address where you wish to receive the fingerprint card. Our email address is: email@example.com
Mail the completed fingerprint card to the following address:

PRIMARY: A government-issued photo I.D. card such as a state-issued driver’s license or non-driver identification card, U.S. Government military or civilian Common Access Card (CAC), or any other photo identification card issued by any municipal, state or federal agency.
SECONDARY: The second form of identification must be a Social Security card or any government document that has the subject’s name and SSN on it. Some examples would be any tax form issued by the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) or an employer (any IRS form such as a W-2, W-4, 1040 tax return, etc.); a tax bill issued by a government agency; any form from a school, college or university that displays the subject’s name and SSN; or a financial document such as a loan document issued by a bank. This list is not all-inclusive. A Social Security card is always preferred, but the other documents listed can suffice in the event the subject does not have their Social Security card.
