The eCard Plus was the first ever GSIS UMID. The Government Service Insurance System has replaced it with their new eCard called UMID or the Unified Multi-Purpose ID which is an all for one one for all GSIS compliant type of identification. To download the GSIS UMID application form go to the main branch (see photo of the downloadable pdf application form below). This type of ID can be used in services of the government like SSS, Pag-Ibig, PhilHealth and the GSIS.
According to the GSIS website – “UMID system is in compliance with Executive Order No. 420 dated April 13, 2005 which required all government agencies and government owned and controlled corporations (GOCCs) to streamline and harmonize their identification systems, and Executive Order No. 700 dated January 16, 2008 which identified the social security identification system as the core of the UMID system and directed the SSS to implement the streamlining and harmonization of the ID systems of all government agencies and GOCCs.”
UMID application or enrollment is now ope at the GSIS Head Office in Pasay City, Quezon City and selected Regional Offices and branches. You can download the UMID application form at the GSIS site here – http://www.gsis.gov.ph. We will be posting in our updates, the steps or procedures on how to enroll or apply for the GSIS UMID-compliant eCard. If you want to learn more, read here about GSIS conso loan.
