List of Acceptable IDs and Supporting Documents for SSS, Passport, GSIS, TIN

Having valid IDs is very important in transacting online and offline to all offices locally and abroad. Identification is our key and access in everything so we must keep and take care of our IDs and ID cards. In this page, I am sharing the list of acceptable IDs and supporting documents in the Philippines used and accepted by the government and offices locally and abroad.

Are you getting an ID for employment? Or perhaps registering for an SSS membership or GSIS ecard, perhaps you’re applying for a Tax Identification Number (TIN), or applying for a credit card, passport maybe? No matter what you are dealing with, every transaction requires an ID so it’s important we get and be issued for an acceptable ID. Remember your ID must be valid and not expired.

  • Passport
  • PRC Card

  • Local/International Driver’s License

What if you don’t have a valid ID? No worries, government offices also consider and accept secondary or supporting documents to prove your identify no matter what transaction you are dealing with. If you don’t have a valid ID for now, prepare any of the following documents:

Always remember your IDs must not be expired and also contain consistent and similar data like your last name, middle name, first name, birth date and signature on all IDs and documents.

Getting GSIS eCard also requires valid ID (usually your company ID/government office ID) and any supporting document if needed. For TIN, currently there is no official ID yet for Tax Payers and TIN is different from Tax Payer’s ID card. TIN is just Tax ID Number not considered as acceptable ID by some offices.
