State Form This form is for veterans with disabilities and dependents to request a Social Security number for their service animals. The State and Local Veterans Service Commission (SCC) has the responsibility, in all Ohio counties, of providing veterans and their veterans' families with a state identification card with proof of income and employment. Ohio is a qualified state for the veteran service programs in the Veterans Rehabilitation Act, the Vietnam Era Veterans Readjustment Assistance Act, and the Service members Civil Relief Act. It is also required to be in good standing in any county receiving money under the Community Development Block Grant (CBG), the Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program (LIH EAP), or the Special Supplemental Nutrition Program for Women, Infants, and Children (WIC). All veterans have the right to a state identification card with proof of a satisfactory or successful transition to civilian life. The current minimum age for receiving a state identification card is 18 years, but they can be younger if the veteran has reached the age of 18 with a disability (see Section 9 of Ohio Revised Code). The U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) defines an animal as any mammal or reptile, bird, fish, dragonfly or other insect or animal that is native to any one of the continents of the world (see Section 5 of Ohio Revised Code and Ohio Administrative Code Title 8, Chapter 8, Subchapter B, Section 2113.01). A household member is considered natural parent when they accompany the veteran with the service animal and are present throughout their lifetime. If living with the veteran, the household member is responsible for the service animal's care and must notify the service animal provider of any change during this period. This definition does not include dogs unless they have a microchip that identifies them as belonging to the household. The service animal that accompanies the veteran may be a horse or any other domesticated animal with a microchip. The vet must identify and tag each service animal with its U.S. Postal Service (USPS) account number, name, and permanent identification number (PIN).
