Service members or eligible family members with an emergent need should contact the nearest NMCRS office to make an appointment. For the most time-critical emergencies, service members may be able to be assisted in an office the same day, but it is best to call the nearest office first to speak with a caseworker to determine how NMCRS may best be able to assist. If available, plan to bring your military identification card, most recent Leave and Earnings Statement, and any documentation that helps with verifying the need to the office. If you are outside the San Diego area and the San Diego area NMCRS offices are closed, or the emergency cannot wait until the next business day, the American Red Cross may administer emergency funds on behalf of NMCRS to qualifying service members and their families.
