How to Get UMID ID – SSS, GSIS, Pagibig and Philhealth ( via SSS Office)

The UMID card, Unified Multi-purpose ID, is one of the government issued ID’s that can be availed for FREE. The government started issuing this unified ID in order to rationalize the identification systems to all government agencies and government-owned and controlled corporations (GOCCs) in the Philippines. This ID serves as a proof of identity, for example, in transacting with SSS, GSIS, Pagibig and Philhealth for insurance, healthcare and retirement benefits.

Application for UMID card through any SSS Office for example, requires that the applicant is an active SSS member with at least one monthly contribution.

    There is a text scam circulating about Fast UMID processing for only P100!
    The SSS already released a statement regarding this that this is not a promo of the agency and the message is a text scam. Let us be aware and not fall prey to these scammers!
