The Register of Deeds office records military separation documents known as a DD214 record.

Military discharges have restricted public access.

There is no charge to record or obtain a copy of a military discharge.

The service member must provide a government- issued ID to record or obtain certified copies of military discharges. However, N.C.G.S § 47-113(2) allows authorized parties to record or request certified copies of recorded military discharges.

Authorized parties include:

  • Subject of the record
  • Widow or widower of deceased spouse
  • Agents and representatives of the subject authorized in writing by the subject
  • Authorized agents of Veterans Affairs
