Most of us want to have a UMID Card because it is a valid identification card to many establishments. But do you know that it is a powerful 4 in 1 card for your SSS, GSIS, PagIBIG, PhilHealth transactions. The new UMID Card can also be used as an ATM to withdraw your SSS Loan and Benefits. Here’s HOW TO APPLY FOR UMID Card.
The Unified Multi Purpose Card (UMID) is the Unified ID Card of SSS, GSIS, PhilHealth and PagIBIG. The new UMID being released by the SSS (as of April 2017) uses a contact less smartchip technology that stores member’s SSS information and biometrics data such as fingerprints, facial image and signature.
Aside from identification purpose, the UMID card can be used in withdrawing benefits and loans proceeds from ATMs. Loan releases and benefit payments can now be paid via deposit to the bank account of the member/beneficiary where the UMID card is enrolled as an ATM.
The SSS issues UMID cards to its members comprising of private sector workers; GSIS to public sector workers, and PhilHealth to those not covered by either SSS or GSIS.
