The Department of Social Welfare and Development and the Philippine Statistics Authority conduct co-location registration of Philippine Identification System (PhilSys-ID) for the beneficiaries of DSWD at the Central Office on September 19-23.

In pursuit of a more effective and efficient delivery of services, the Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD) has partnered with the Philippine Statistics Authority (PSA) to conduct Philippine Identification System (PhilSys-ID) registration for its clients at the Central Office on September 19-23.

Through the 5-day co-location partnership, 104 clients of DSWD, who received assistance from the Assistance to Individuals in Crisis Situations (AICS) program, were accommodated and assisted in registering and processing their application for the national ID.

The Department said that the PhilSys ID would benefit both the DSWD and its clients as the features of the ID enable faster eligibility checks and digital payments, hence, providing better and multiple access points for beneficiaries to receive social assistance.

The co-location partnership was sought by Secretary Erwin T. Tulfo, offering the facilities of the Department for the on-site registration, to make the services of the DSWD more accessible to its target sectors in the long run. Likewise, the activity was in line with the PSA’s recommendation to the Department to identify areas where PSA can co-locate to conduct PhilSys Registration for those who have not yet registered for the national ID. This is also in conjunction with the previously signed Memorandum of Agreement (MOA) for the Pilot Use Case between the two agencies in September 2021.

The DSWD vowed to enhance its social protection delivery and improve the overall experience for its beneficiaries by exploring further interventions, such as the co-location partnership with PSA. ###
