PSA launches 'PhilSys on Wheels'

SAN JOSE, Antique (PIA) -- The Philippine Statistics Authority (PSA) launched recently the "PhilSys on Wheels," a mobile registration for those who have not yet registered with the Philippine Identification System (PhilSys) here.

Provincial Statistics Officer Randy M. Tacogdoy in a press release said that this is in line with the government's efforts to cover the remaining unregistered Antiqueños to the PhilSys. 

PSA reported a total of 477,020 or about 87% of Antique residents aged five years old and over were already registered as of August 31, 2023.

The implementation of PhilSys is mandated under Republic Act No. 11055, or the Philippine Identification System Act which aims to establish a single national identification system for all citizens and resident aliens of the Republic of the Philippines.

The PhilSys on Wheels is traveling to all municipalities in the province covering  various barangays and markets during their respective market days, as well as during public events.

Simultaneous mobile registrations in schools and offices are also being undertaken aside from the putting up of registration centers at the PSA Provincial Office located on the ground floor of Eagle’s Hotel Building and the Civil Registry System (CRS) Outlet at the ground floor of Xela Hotel, both at Bantayan Road, San Jose, Antique, for convenient and fixed registration access for the public.

The PhilSys ID shall serve as the official government-issued identification document of cardholders, providing valid proof of identity for all citizens and resident aliens as a means of simplifying public and private transactions.

The PhilSys aims to eliminate the need to present other forms of identification when transacting with all national government agencies, local government units (LGUs), and all private sector entities.

As a foundational digital ID system, PhilSys will transform how services are delivered in the Philippines and expedite the transition to a digital economy. (AGP/PSM/PIA-Antique with reports from PSA)
