When Will I get my SSS ID?
I’m happy to say that I got my SSS ID after I applied for it eight months ago (see post on How to Apply for SSS ID?). I applied late March 2011 and they sent it late October. I was able to get it in the mail late November the same year. The SSS ID looks different when I compare it to the pictures in the net. I checked and foud that it is also now called as the Unified Multi-Purpose Identification (UMID) Card. What’s the difference between the original and old ID compared to the UMID? Does anyone know?
If you have not received your SSS ID yet, you can contact the SSS offices or check the status online via https://www.sss.gov.ph/sss/login.jsp
But, like most people, we are just being left in the dark, silently waiting for it to arrive. I even forgot the I applied for one and was just surprised to find something in my mail one day.
Now that’s +1 to my valid government IDs with picture.
Till next time,
