How to Apply for UMID Card (Unified Multi-Purpose ID Card)

UMID stands for Unified Multi-purpose ID. It is named as such because you can literally use it for SSS/GSIS/Pag-ibig HDMF, and PhilHealth. This makes transactions with these agencies more convenient because aside from having all of your essential numbers at the back of one card, you can also use it to access data through a kiosk. Another thing that makes owning a UMID card great is it is recognized as a valid primary ID.

Similar to any kind of government-related application, you will need to prepare documents that will serve as proof of identity.

Primary Documents

Bring the original and a photocopy.

  • Passport
  • PRC Card
  • Seaman’s Book
  • Driver’s License

Secondary Documents

You will need these if you don’t have any primary document. Just bring any of the 2 listed below (original and photocopy):

  • NBI Clearance
  • School or Company ID
  • Postal ID
  • Senior Citizen Card
  • Major Credit Card
  • Voter’s ID
  • Savings account passbook
  • Alien Certificate of Registration
  • GSIS Member’s Record
  • TIN Card
  • Certification from the Office of Southern/Northern Cultural Communities or Office of Muslim Affairs

Since the card services 4 different agencies, one may apply in any Social Security System, PhilHealth, GSIS (if you are a government employee), or PAG-IBIG branch. This article, however, will only discuss the steps you need to do if you wish to apply for a UMID card through SSS.

SSS Walk-in Application

  1. Fill up SSS Form E-6. Although this form will be provided at SSS, it is more convenient to download your own copy to save time and energy.
  2. Prepare your E-6 form and the required supporting documents. You will need to fall in line for data capture purposes. In this step, someone will be taking your picture, fingerprint, and signature.
  3. Once data capture is done, all you need to do is to wait for 30 days for your card to arrive by mail. If you are not always at home, it helps to visit your local post office.

Don’t wait a long time to get your UMID card. It’s best to apply for it as soon as you are able.
