The requirements and procedure on how to get an SSS ID card in the Philippines are listed in this page. SSS ID is one of the most acceptable IDs or government IDs required when transacting anywhere in the Philippines. SSS ID card is an accepted valid ID wherever you go so it is important to have one.
It is free and no charge to get this identification card by the way, and all you have to do is go to the SSS branch near you and follow the steps discussed below.
SSS has also joined the feature of UMID ID which is a single ID which comprises SSS, GSIS, Pagibig and Philhealth account in one ID. You can use this card in transacting to the mentioned government agencies nationwide. In this page, I’m gonna discuss the regular SSS ID card issued to all SSS members.
Take note that the same requirements and processing is applied in getting UMID card too. When I got SSS ID card, they issued UMID card already. Read this page to know more about how to get UMID Card for SSS, GSIS, Pagibig and Philhealth: “How to Get UMID Card – Requirements and Procedures”
