Over 4,400 national IDs up for delivery

/ 04:31 AM May 05, 2021

Almost three years since President Duterte signed the Philippine Identification System Act into law in August 2018, over 4,400 national IDs are now being distributed nationwide to registrants who mostly belonged to poor households and who needed identification for their dole outs and possibly open bank accounts to join the formal economy. National Statistician Dennis Mapa said from an initial 956 Philippine IDs picked up by the Philippine Postal Corp. (PhilPost) from the Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas (BSP) on May 1, the number of IDs currently being delivered reached 4,416 as of Tuesday. PhilPost had been tasked to bring the IDs printed by the BSP to those who finished the first two steps of registration. —
