DES PLAINES, Ill. – State Rep. Marty Moylan, D-Des Plaines, is highlighting a newly available online registration process for the Cook County military discount program aimed at increasing military and veteran access to the program.
“The military discount program is a simple way to show veterans how much their service to their country is appreciated,” Moylan said. “Hundreds of businesses in Cook County offer military discounts to veterans, and modernizing this program will help more veterans access those benefits.”
Registration for the military and veteran discount card is now available online for active duty military members, veterans, guard members and reservists through the office of the Cook County Recorder of Deeds. The program is a public-private partnership with more than 200 businesses to honor the men and women who have served. Eligible applicants can register at https://www.cookrecorder.com/militarydiscount/. Once registration is complete, they must mail one color headshot photo and one copy of proof of their service to the Cook County Recorder of Deeds at 118 N. Clark Street, Room 120, Chicago, IL 60602. Acceptable forms of applicants’ proof of service include a DD-214, VA ID, CAC Card or Retired Military ID.

“I have the utmost respect and appreciation for the brave men and women of our military, and this small token of gratitude is just one way to demonstrate how thankful we are,” Moylan said. “I am also thankful to the hundreds of Cook County business owners who offer this service to the brave men and women who have served in our military. They remain committed to honoring and serving the members of our military during these trying times.”
