1.5 million citizens of Quezon apply for national ID
Around 1.5 million people of Quezon province have been added to the Philippine Identification System (PhilSys) by the Philippine Statistics Authority (PSA), and 602,371 Philippine Identification (PhilID) cards—both the printed and digital versions of the PhilID—have been delivered to them.
Provincial Statistics Officer Airene Pucyutan stated in an interview on Wednesday that “we have distributed 255,283 ePhilIDs and 347,088 PhilID cards provincewide.”
She claimed that numerous government organizations, including the Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD), Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas (BSP), Government Service Insurance System (GSIS), and Department of Foreign Affairs (DFA), have issued directives and memoranda regarding the validity and acceptability of the PhilID in all transactions in their respective organizations.
According to Pucyutan, any institution or establishment that declines to accept a PhilID that has been produced physically or digitally will be punished in compliance with Republic Act 11055, also known as the Philippine Identification System Act.
Pucyutan recommended the public check an ePhilID’s validity via the PhilSys Check link provided by the PSA to prevent the spread of false ePhilIDs that might be printed on a piece of paper.
She reaffirmed that the printed ePhilID is genuine and has the same functionality as the real PhilID.
In order to promote PhilSys registration and provide printed ePhilIDs, Pucyutan stated that his office is now doing mobile registrations at barangays, institutions, establishments, terminals, and schools.
As of 2022, Quezon province is home to more than 2.4 million people.
