PSA-Bicol advises the public to double-check civil registry records.

The Philippine Statistics Authority in Bicol (PSA-5) is encouraging the public to check their birth records with their local civil registry offices as the country celebrates Civil Registration Month in February.

On Thursday, Cynthia L. Perdiz, regional director of PSA-Bicol, emphasized the importance of civil registration, which includes a citizen’s rights and advantages.

She noted in a radio interview that a birth certificate can establish civil standing, which will act as an individual’s identification and filiation with his or her parents and other individuals from the moment they start school until they have a beneficiary.

“Para kang hindi legal, na nag e-exist kung hindi ka rehistrado.” As a result, to give a sense of belonging to the ating mga kababayan. (Not being registered is equivalent to being an unlawful or non-existent person.) As a result of the registration, our compatriots will have an identification),” Perdiz explained.

She said that a person’s civil register offers them access to a variety of social benefits based on a single identification.

“Kailangan mapatunayan mo na, kung may criterion or circumstances, ikaw ay taga ganito, ikaw ay IP (indigenous people), so how will you prove that?” How will you verify that you are 18 and above, for example, kailangan mag pa-vaccinate (you must be vaccinated)? So your birth certificate is the only way to prove it,” Perdiz explained.

Proclamation No. 682, issued by the late President Corazon C. Aquino in 1991, mandates the commemoration of Civil Registration Month every February to raise awareness of the necessity of civil registration in people’s daily lives.
