UMID or the Multi Purpose ID is the new compounded and integrated all-in-one service ID for government agencies namely, SSS, Pag-Ibig, GSIS and PhilHealth. With respect to all sorts of services by these offices, any member of any of the above agency can use the said identification card.
With the Social Security System, there are designated kiosks all over the country where members who have the UMID may use it without the need to go fall in the very long line just to make personal inquiry on account details.
Different services involving figures can now be determined with the use of the said kiosks in chosen SSS branches. You can inquire about loan payment, member contribution and more.
Different government agencies included in the list of uses for UMID are PhilHealth, GSIS, SSS and Pag-Ibig. Using only one identification card, you can access, login, and check member data and information for any of the listed agencies above. You can get loan application status, monthly payment amortization and remittance status, loan payment, monthly contribution, download forms and more.
In the picture above is where you will see a comparison of the old SSS ID which has become just one of the included government agencies to be included in the service of the all in one ID called Universal Multipurpose ID.
Using this compounded multipurpose ID for SSS transactions is easy. All you have to do is to swipe the card in any kiosk with some sort of an ATM machine that allows the latest SSS ID to be used for securing a database-based transaction wherein you can get any member related transaction information from loan, payments, monthly contribution amortization, housing loan payment and any static information need.
