Record of Service card
If you are honourably releasing after 10 or more years of CF service and are entitled to an immediate annuity, you will now receive an NDI 75 ROS card at the time of your release.
As a retired member, you can use the plasticized card as a record of service and as a means of identification. It's a continuing link between you and the organization, and can be used to access DND/CF recreational facilities IAW local procedures.
If you elect retirement leave, you remain a CF member until that leave expires. For this period of retirement leave you will be issued a temporary ID card (NDI 10) that will expire when your retirement leave expires. By that time, you will have received your permanent ROS card.
If you do not elect retirement leave, you cease to be a CF member the day of your release. During your final release interview, you will turn in your CF ID card and receive a temporary ROS card, which will include your surname, given name, rank and length of service, a photo from your personal file, and an expiry date six months after your release date. The temporary ROS card will be plasticized by your Release Cell. You must destroy this card when you receive your permanent ROS card.
You may direct questions about the ROS cardâ â€temporary and permanentâ â€to Maj Wendy Barlow (DMCARM 4 Rel & Pension) at (613) 992-1198.

(That's what mine is called - it was issued in 1997 and, as other have said, has my photo, full name, last rank, service number and a serial number on the front and my years of service, release status, force component and signature on the back.)
