There are a few steps for the UMID ID application process. Here are the steps that you may follow:

Gather the documentary requirements for the UMID ID application. Make sure to have your valid IDs photocopied and to fill in the Application Form.

Go to a branch of the Social Security System that allows walk-in applications for the Unified Multi-purpose ID card. For unscheduled visits to the SSS, it will be best to follow the coding system set by the social insurance institution:

Thursday7 and 8
Friday9 and 0

Go to the branch of SSS and submit your requirements. It is best to wear a shirt with a collar or a blouse as you will have to undergo a picture-taking for your photo in the ID. Your biometrics will also be taken. You will be given the stub after the taking of the photo and your biometrics.

The Social Security System (SSS) will notify you within 30 days once your UMID card is ready. Make sure to bring your stub which you need to present to the state entity in claiming your ID. It must be claimed within 60 days since the update about its release.
