Manila, Philippines – Tinatayang nasa 37 milyong Filipino na ang nakarehistro sa unang step ng Philippine Identification System (PhilSys) o national ID, batay sa National Economic and Development Authority (NEDA).

Base sa Philippine Statistics Authority (PSA) sa datos nitong July 2, 2021, nasa 37.2 milyon na ang rehistrado sa Step 1 o demographic data collection.

Nasa 16.2 milyon naman ang nakakumpleto ng Step 2 registration o biometrics capture.

Samantala, 343,742 registrant na ang nakakuha ng kanilang PhilID cards.

“The COVID-19 crisis underscores the need to provide unhampered access to banking and social services for all Filipinos, especially the poor. This is why the President gave the directive to accelerate the implementation of the Philippine Identification System or PhilSys to provide all Filipinos a unique and digitalized ID,” lahad ni Socioeconomic Planning Secretary Karl Kendrick Chua.

“We aim to register 50 to 70 million Filipinos with the PhilSys and achieve 100% financial inclusion at the family level by the end of the year. This will help the government efficiently identify beneficiaries for social protection programs and spark the widespread use of electronic payments to accelerate the digital economy.” RNT/FGDC
