4Ps beneficiaries urged to habe National ID

MANILA, Philippines — The Department of Social Welfare Development (DSWD) encouraged beneficiaries of the Pantawid Pamilyang Pilipino Program (4Ps) to register for the Philippine Identification System (national ID). “It would benefit both the DSWD and its clients as the features of the ID enable faster eligibility checks and digital payments, hence, providing better and multiple access points for beneficiaries to receive social assistance,” DSWD Assistant Secretary Romel Lopez said on Monday

The DSWD said that as of the end of January, one million out of 24.4 million 4Ps individual members have their PhilSys Card Number.

“The DSWD aims to significantly increase this number to ensure a smoother and more inclusive social assistance delivery system,”  Lopez said.

Lopez added that the DSWD is also working to include children under five years old as 4Ps registrants.

“Notably, efforts are underway to extend registration to include children under five years old, pending approval of guidelines,” added Lopez.
