SSS Warns Members Against Fixers Online if They Plan to Get UMID Card
The Social Security System (SSS) has warned its members who plan to get UMID Card not to transact with fixers on social media.
SSS President and CEO Aurora C. Ignacio urged members who receive a Unified Multi-Purpose Identification (UMID) Card on Monday to stay away from online fixers to avoid any difficulty. She went on to say that the SSS is the only approved institution that accepts applications and issues UMID Cards to its private-sector members.
“The SSS is the only authorized institution that accepts applications and issues UMID Cards for its members working in the private sector,” Ignacio reminded.

Ignacio emphasized that the application necessitates biometric data capture, which is a critical step in the issue of UMID Cards and is now only available through our locations. To avoid any trouble, Ignacio advised the members to avoid dealing with fixers.
To minimize infection with coronavirus sickness, SSS also encouraged its members to use the Appointment System on My SSS Member Portal to schedule an appointment at the branch they intend to visit (COVID-19). SSS UMID Cards are available to members who have made at least one contribution.
For first-time applicants, UMID Cards are similarly free, however, those who update or renew their cards must pay a cost of P200. The SSS also informed its members of an “until further notice” delay in the creation and availability of UMID Cards.
