LGU-Camalig holds coordination meeting with the Philippine Statistics Authority (PSA) to discuss preparatory activities for the upcoming registration for the Philippine Identification System (PhilSys) – a valid proof of identity for all residents devised to ensure faster and simpler access to government aid, payments, bank transactions, and other services.
 
The PhilSys will also serve as one of the government’s references in the proper allocation of resources and assignment of intervention priorities for families most affected by poverty, disasters, and the impacts of the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.
 
The registration for the PhilSys ID is scheduled on March 15, 2021 at the Bungkaras Gymnasium, Brgy. 2, Poblacion, Camalig, Albay and is set to initially cater barangays within the town’s commercial district.
 
Signed into law in August 2018, the provision of National IDs targets the real poor residents in the municipality, allowing convenient transactions through a single form of identification as compared to the tedious presentation of various forms of IDs and requirements.
 
PSA also eyes to cover southern and far-flung barangays to maximize coverage of the registration phase.
