17.6M PhilIDs are scheduled for delivery: Palace

Malacanang stated on Wednesday that around 17.6 million Philippine Identification (PhilID) cards will soon be sent to registrants nationwide.

According to PSA press secretary Trixie Cruz-Angeles, this came after the PSA gave the Philippine Postal Corporation (Post Office) 17.6 million printed PhilIDs.

According to a news release from Cruz-Angeles, “as of August 23, the PSA has transmitted to the Philippine Postal Corporation (PhilPost) approximately 17.6 million physical National ID cards for delivery to the houses of ID applicants.”

By the end of 2022, the PSA hopes to have issued 50 million PhilIDs overall.

According to Cruz-Angeles, the PSA has expressed confidence in its ability to accomplish its goal of providing about 30.1 million physical PhilIDs and generating 19.9 million digital national IDs by the end of the year.

The release of 19.9 million printable digital ID cards and 30.1 million printed national identification cards by year’s end is expected, according to the Philippine Statistics Authority.

Production by PhilIDs “above” daily goal

Arsenio Balisacan, the secretary for socioeconomic planning, informed Malacaang that during the previous 11 days, the Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas (BSP) printing facilities produced an average of 103,000 physical cards per day.

Balisacan stated in his report that the daily production is more than the PSA’s daily aim.

According to Balisacan, director of the National Economic and Development Authority (NEDA), “PSA is making excellent progress to reach the end-year target of 30.1 million physical Phil ID cards, which is 58 percent of the overall aim.”

According to Republic Act (RA) 11055, also known as the Philippine Identification System (PhilSys) Act, all Filipino citizens, and resident aliens must use the PhilID as an official and sufficient form of identification for all official and private transactions.

According to RA 11055, the PSA, an affiliated agency of the NEDA, is the implementing agency in charge of general planning, management, and administration of PhilSys, the government’s primary platform for every Filipino citizen and resident alien.

Prior to this, President Ferdinand “Bongbong” Marcos Jr. ordered the PSA to issue 30 million PhilIDs by the end of 2022 and enroll 92 million Filipinos in the PhilSys by the middle of 2023.

With the introduction of digital PhilIDs, registrants would be able to print, download, or generate their national ID through the mobile app for users while they awaited their physical IDs.

According to a previous PSA, the digital PhilID would be legitimate and have the same features as the physical ID.

Marcos stated in his State of the Nation Address on July 25 that the use of PhilID will allow for simple interactions with the government.

Additionally, Marcos gave the Department of Information and Communications Technology (DICT) instructions to synchronize and digitize government databases and make the information accessible to all state departments and organizations.
