  • To transact easily in government offices and agencies –SSS, GSIS, Pagibig and Philhealth
  • It is considered as a valid ID and an acceptable ID – remember how we need a valid ID in everything we do every day? Even domestic aiports and banks accept this ID

Steps and Procedures in getting UMID Card

How to get UMID Card in SSS

Because SSS is the core of this Unified ID system, I am sharing the steps in getting this ID in SSS first. The requirements are:

  • Application Form
  • 2 Valid IDs (photocopy and original)

I suggest you download the application form online so you can already fill it out at home and you won’t miss any information you need like your SSS Number etc. Active members can surely process their application anytime at working hours and days.

Procedures in Getting UMID Card in SSS

Bring your application form at the SSS office together with your valid IDs. They will get the photocopies of your IDs. They will verify you if you are an active member and if you are eligible to UMID right then. Once you’ve been verified OK, they will capture your photo, signature and scan your fingerprints. They will give your UMID application slip which bears the date when you’ll receive it. They will deliver it via mail. The release of this card is faster now. It took me two weeks when I received mine. 🙂

Benefits of having UMID SSS Card:

You can used this card in the SSS Kiosk to view your SSS profile and account you can view your Employee Static Info, premiums, history, loans and balance inquiry.

How to get UMID Card in GSIS

All GSIS members and pensioners are required to have UMID card even if they already have the famous eCard Plus. GSIS has Enrollment Centers servicing UMID enrollment and application. If there is a GSIS Regional Office near you, apparently, you can also apply there anytime during working hours. The requirements are:

  • Enrollment Form (download it online here at the following link below). Note that there is an enrolment form for UMID application with ecard plus and without ecard plus. GSIS UMID New Enrolee. GSIS UMID Enrolment Form for those with eCard Plus
  • eCard Plus or 2 valid IDs

Procedure in Getting UMID Card in GSIS

Present the documents above and have your account/ records verified by the GSIS staff. Have your photo and signature captured and your fingerprints scanned. They will send your UMID card via mail if you are a pensioner or it will be delivered to you by your Agency Liaison Officer if you are a member.

UMID Card Activation:

You need to activate your UMID or else it’s useless. Your UMID will be activated within 72 hours from the time that you have successfully validated your fingerprints at the GSIS GW@ps Kiosk. Activation is done by placing your UMID Card on the ecard reader and your fingerprint on the biometric scanner. You’ll see a Confirmation Message saying your card is now active. If you don’t know how or failed to do the activation process, you can always ask GSIS staff to assist you. They are very helpful.

  11. Hi po. Before I left Muntinlupa, nag-apply na ako for UMID. Unfortunately, nakalipat na ako ng Mandaluyong, wala pa rin nakakarating sa akin na UMID. Months after I left Muntinlupa, nagtatanong ako sa mga dati kong kasama sa bahay if may nare-receive ba silang any mail from SSS re UMID. Unfortunately, wala raw. Can I still get my UMID? Possible ba na mag-request ako na ipadala sa certain address or branch ng SSS? Any helpful information will do para makuha ko yung UMID. Thank you!

  14. Good day, just asking regular payer ako ng sss but ung I’d ko is lost.. Now gusto ko kumuha ng umid pra Isahan na lng. Anong requirements ang nid ko dalhin, pra di na ako MA hazzle pag pumunta ako sa sss office. Hope masagot ang inquiry ko. Thanks

    • Hi. kailangan mo mag pa notary na lost yung id mo.
      valid id lang ang kailangan and sxmpre kelangan alam mo pa din ang sss number mo.
      Kailangan mo din magbayad ng 300 pesos para sa new id.

  15. Meron na po akong UMID. Pero gusto ko po kumuha ng updated version para recent address na yung nakalagay. Same process pa din ba? Wala pa din bayad? What will happen to my old UMID?


  16. Wanna ask if how many months of contribution sa SSS, Philhealth, etc… kailangan para maka kuha ng card?
    I pay monthly contribution for about a year na ata because it is a requirement sa aming company. May ID number na ako sa lahat pero walang card of each kind and I wanna get this type of ID card because it has everything.


    • there is no waiting period. you can anytime to your nearest sss branch to get UMID. no fee for first time applicants. 300php for replacement cards. i hope that helps. you have to bring 2valid ids BC and company id is fine. ihope that helps

  17. Good evening po. Meron po akong concern about sa UMID -ID ko po. Mtatagal na po akong nag apply for UMID ID taong 2012 pa po.. Na recieved ko lang po ang temporary ID ko po, pero ang UMID ID ay hindi pa po..
    Pangatlong balik na po sa GSIS Iligan para po sa UMID ID, pero wala pa rin po. Ang sagot lang po nila ay hindi pa daw nila natanggap from National Manila ang aking UMID ID..Last year 2016 ng Nobyembre binalikan ko ulit wala pa rin po…Ano po ba nga dapat kong gawin? Salamat po sa pagsagot at pagbibigay ng halaga sa aking problema sa UMID ID ko po…God bless us always…

    • Hi, I suggest you approach mismo ang manager ng GSIS sa Iligan, maybe they can prioritize you then. Sobra tagal na kasi ng UMID mo, wala pa din so better approach the higher position 🙂

    • 2009 pa ako nag-apply but temporary ecard lng nabigay. Every time mgttanong din aq sa gsis iligan same answer – i’ll have to wait.

      Just recently while filling up my pds form, i called gsis hotline since i lost my temporary card to ask for my gsis id #.

      Then i asked the person on the line if i can ask for a CRN (common reference number), and he gave it to me right away.

      CRN # is what you need to have first before applying for a umid id. You cant apply for umid if you dont have CRN yet as always been the reason given by gsis employees when i inquire about umid.

      I’m planning to apply for a umid today.

      Hope this helps.

  18. Hi! ask ko lang.. kakakuha ko lang kasi ng ss number(E-1) form and hindi ako pumunta sa ID section umalis ako agad after makuha yung number.. Dapat ba nagpa ID na ko right after magpamember? or hindi rin pwede dahil wala pang contribution? And ask ko na rin kung nagbubukas ba ang SSS kapag Saturdays? yung hindi sa malls. Tska pwede rin ba na sa ibang branch magpaID kahit hindi sa branch kung san ka kumuha nung number. Thanks

  19. Hi,

  21. wala po ba talagang kahit na anong babayadan, kasi sa ibang site eh may nabasa akong may binayadan sila and yet ang bagal pa din ng process

    • Wala pong babayaran kapag magpapa-i.d ka po.
      baka ung ibang articles nagpafixer sila.
      100% no payment required po.
      but you have to wait talaga sa process, madalas kasing maraming tao sa sss offices. so tyagain nyu na lang po.
