Mayor Jaime Fresnedi led the pilot registration of the Philippine Identification System (PhilSys) at Muntinlupa Sports Center, Brgy. Tunasan last May 20. At least 600 initial local government employees and elected officials in the city are set to be registered until May 24.

Registrants will undergo a three-step registration which include the collection of demographic data for Step 1, validation and capture of biometric information for Step 2, and issuance of a physical ID card stored with a 12-digit PhilSys number or personal serial number (PSN) and a 16-digit PhilSys card number (PCN) for Step 3.

He noted that the PhilSys will help the local government in improving the public’s accessibility to social welfare programs and benefits from the government.
