The City Government of Muntinlupa announced yesterday the launch of an institutional registration of the national ID system in partnership with the Philippine Statistics Authority (PSA) for elected officials and LGU employees.
Mayor Jaime Fresnedi led the pilot registration of the Philippine Identification System (PhilSys) at Muntinlupa Sports Center, Brgy. Tunasan yesterday. At least 600 initial City Government employees and elected officials in the city are set to be registered until May 24.
In compliance to health and safety protocols, the City Government has scheduled registrants in batches to manage the number of individuals present at the registration center.
Registrants will undergo a three-step registration which include the collection of demographic data for Step 1, validation and capture of biometric information for Step 2, and issuance of a physical ID card stored with a 12-digit PhilSys number or personal serial number (PSN) and a 16-digit PhilSys card number (PCN) for Step 3.
Fresnedi expressed his thanks to PSA for facilitating the initial rollout in Muntinlupa and vowed to provide logistical support for the national ID registration in the city. He noted that the PhilSys will help the City Government in improving the public’s accessibility to social welfare programs and benefits from the government.
PSA is yet to announce the exact date on the start of the PhilSys registration process for the general public in Muntinlupa while the local government eyes to set up registration centers in local malls. On April 21, Mayor Jaime Fresnedi signed a Memorandum of Agreement with PSA-NCR Regional Director Paciano Dizon for the rollout of the national ID registration in Muntinlupa.
Joining the MOA signing ceremony were PSA-NCR Chief Statistical Specialist Estrella Vargas, PSA-NCR PhilSys Focal Person Minerva Carpio, PSA-NCR Statistical Analyst John Daniel Flores, and Muntinlupa City Planning and Development Officer Alvin Veron.
The national ID system shall simplify public and private transactions, and shall be a social and economic platform that promotes seamless social service delivery and strengthens financial inclusion for both public and private services.
The public may complete the Step 1 of the registration on https://register.philsys.gov.ph/. A confirmation with Application Reference Number or QR code swill be sent to the registered mobile number and email address of the registrant to be presented at registration centers for Step 2 and Step 3.
