PSA reminds registrants on documents to bring to PhilSys Step 2

ILOILO CITY, Jan. 29 (PIA) - - The Philippine Statistics Authority (PSA) Region VI is reminding registrants on the necessary supporting documents to bring during the second step of the Philippine Identification System (PhilSys) registration tentatively scheduled this coming February.

Step 2 registration is the validation of supporting documents and the capture of biometric information of individuals who participated in the first step of the registration phase which involved house-to-house collection of demographic information of these individuals and scheduling of their appointments to the registration center.

PSA VI Regional Director Fred Sollesta said the primary documents that are required for registrants to bring at the registration centers established by the different local government units in the region are PSA-issued Certificate of Live Birth and one government-issued identification document which bears a full name, front-facing photograph, and signature or thumbmark such as DFA-issued Philippine passport or e-passport; GSIS or SSS-issued Unified Multi-purpose Identification Card (UMID); and Land Transportation Office (LTO)-issued Student License’s Permit or Non-professional/Professional Driver’s License.

Secondary documents that can be presented at the registration center include: LCRO-issued Certificate of Live Birth, PSA-issued Report of Birth, PSA-issued Certificate of Foundling, Integrated Bar of the Philippines Identification Card, Professional Regulatory Commission ID, Seaman’s Book, Overseas Workers Welfare Administration (OWWA) ID, Senior Citizen’s ID, SSS ID, Pantawid Pamilyang Pilipino Program (4Ps) ID, License to Own or Possess Firearms ID, NBI Clearance, Police Clearance/ID, Solo Parent’s ID, PWD ID, Voter’s ID, Postal ID, Taxpayer Identification Number ID, PhilHealth ID and Philippine Retirement Authority-issued Special Resident Retiree’s Visa, and a national ID from other countries

Registrants must also bring their appointment slips indicating the place and schedule of their Step 2 registration.

Sollesta said if the registrant lost his/her appointment slip, the registrant must present the text or email message to the PhilSys personnel containing his/her appointment reference number (ARN), schedule, and venue of registration.

With the latest update of Step 2 Registration, the registrants will be duly informed of their new schedules via SMS or email message.

In Western Visayas, around 2.1 million individuals have completed the Step 1 registration of the PhilSys that intends to provide Filipinos with a valid proof of identity for easier accessibility and application for public and private transactions, opening of bank accounts and eligibility to social welfare programs and benefits from the government.
