Registration for the National ID System for Bacolod City residents is ongoing from Mondays to Saturdays at the Rizal Elementary School in the city.

“We are currently catering to 15 years old and above,” said Provincial Chief Statistical Specialist Luis Gonzales of the Philippine Statistics Authority – Negros Occidental.

The ongoing registration is the “Step 2” in the Philippine Identification System (PhilSys) process. It involves the validation of supporting documents and capturing of biometric information of registrants.

Step 1 was conducted last year with PSA-commission Data Collectors doing a house-to-house interview to gather the demographic data. An appointment slip for Step 2 was then issued to each interviewee.

For Step 1 in Bacolod, Gonzales said the PSA prioritized members of low-income families based on the list provided by the Department of Social Welfare and Development.

The PSA has made a significant progress in the last quarter of 2020 with over 8.4 million Filipinos completing the PhilSys Step 1 Registration.

Republic Act 11055, or the “Philippine Identification System Act,” aims to establish a single national identification system for all citizens and resident aliens in the Philippines.

Aside from providing a valid proof of identity, establishing a single Philippine Identification System will help transform and streamline the delivery of services, resulting to easier access to and application for social welfare programs and benefits from the government.

The PSA targets to register majority of the Filipinos by the end of 2022.*
