“The PSA shall continue its efforts in expediting the issuance of the PhilID and ePhilID. We encourage our kababayans [fellow Filipinos] who have received their PhilID and ePhilID to maximize its use in their transactions”, PSA Undersecretary Claire Dennis Mapa said in a statement.

Registered Filipinos may check the PhilSys website to see if they can claim their ePhilIDs. Those who have received an official text message from the PSA may also download a PDF copy of the ePhilID on their mobile devices.

PSA also reassured the public that the PhilIDs affected in the Manila Central Post Office fire last May 21 would be prioritized and the IDs woud be reprinted immediately.
