How to get SSS ID – Requirements and Procedure


The Social Security System is a government agency which is an insurance-like system which allows people to loan, and it kind of saves money because every pay we get has an SSS implication taxed from it. One of the first few steps in being a part of the SSS here in the Philippines obviously, is getting an ID.

The SSS ID is not only used for the offices alone; it is considered as a primary identity document and you can use it to apply for a passport, apply for bank accounts, for employment, applying for businesses, and many more things. It is a government issued ID with your picture and signature and therefore, can be used in many cases. In this article, you are going to learn how to get an SSS ID.

SSS ID also has a feature of Unified Multi-Purpose ID (UMID), it is a unified account of SSS, GSIS, PhilHealth and Pag-IBIG members. So if you apply for SSS ID today they will issue a UMID ID.

  • The SSS ID can be used to apply for a different ID like driver’s license, passport, Pagibig, TIN, and many more.
