Social Security System (SSS) members can now replace their electronic identification cards at a lower price, the agency announced on Tuesday.

In a statement, SSS said the replacement fee for the Unified Multi-purpose Identification (UMID) card was reduced to P200 from the current rate of P300.


“We are happy to announce to our members that the proposal to reduce the replacement fee to Php 200 was already approved by the Social Security Commission (SSC) headed by Chairman Amado D. Valdez,” SSS President and Chief Executive Officer Emmanuel Dooc said.


Dooc said the reduced fee also applies to members who want to update information in their identification cards.

Members, however, would not be charged for the replacement fee if the erroneous encoding of data was on the part of SSS, including erroneous screening and capturing of previous card application, according to Dooc.

The SSC, headed by Chairman Valdez, approved the proposal to reduce the fee since the costs of data capture service and the ID card production were also reduced, Dooc said.

The reduced replacement fee took effect on December 11, according to Dooc. /jpv
