HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE TO VERIFY MY FIRST RESPONDER STATUS?
If you choose to verify using your first responder credentials (for example, National or State EMT license/certification number or NFPA ProBoard certification), verification is usually immediate. If you choose to upload documentation, the review may take longer.
Once we have reviewed your document(s), you will receive an email letting you know whether or not you have been verified; and if verification was unsuccessful, guidance for next steps.
WHAT HAPPENS IF I CAN’T PROVE I’M A FIRST RESPONDER?
This is extremely rare for first responders who are active. All jurisdictions provide some kind of official document that is acceptable to ID.me. In the event you cannot provide us any acceptable proof of validation, we will be unable to approve eligibility.
IS MY INFORMATION SECURE?

IS THE FIRST RESPONDERS DISCOUNT AVAILABLE IN BROOKLYN BEDDING STORES AS WELL AS ONLINE?
Yes, the First Responder discount and any other related special promotions are applied at checkout when shopping in our showrooms.

You may present your credentials at the time of purchase, or work with an in-store associate to digitally verify your eligibility using ID.me.
CAN I COMBINE THE FIRST RESPONDERS DISCOUNT WITH ANY OTHER OFFER?
The First Responders discount cannot be combined with any other promotional codes and cannot be applied to gift card purchases.
