The Philippine Statistics Authority (PSA) intensified its Philippine Identification System (PhilSys) Step 3 Registration operations by successfully delivering 3,102,751 Philippine Identification (PhilID) cards to registrants nationwide through the Philippine Postal Corporation (PHLPost), as of 31 October 2021.

The PhilSys Step 3 Registration involves the issuance of the unique PhilSys Number (PSN) and the PhilID card. The PSA partnered with the Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas (BSP) for card production and personalization, while PHLPost manages the door-to-door delivery of the PhilID cards.

We humbly ask for the patience and support of the public as we, together with the BSP and PHLPost, continuously do our best in accommodating millions of Filipinos who have successfully registered for PhilSys Step 1 and Step 2. In the meantime, please stay tuned for the launch of the PhilSys mobile ID,” said PSA Assistant Secretary Rosalinda P. Bautista, Deputy National Statistician of the PhilSys Registry Office.

The PhilSys mobile ID is the digital version of the PhilID card. The launch of the PhilSys mobile ID aims to accelerate the use of PhilSys, by providing a digital alternative to the physical card.

The PhilSys Card Number (PCN) is the public version of the PhilSys Number (PSN) printed on the front side of the PhilID which shall be used when transacting for private and government services. The PSA strongly advises registrants to safekeep the letter containing their PSN upon receiving the PhilID. The PSN is unique to each registrant and shall always be kept confidential. The public is also reminded to refrain from posting a photo of their PhilID card on social media and other public platforms.
