Why is the production and delivery of UMID card delayed?

Many SSS members who have applied for UMID card have complained that they haven’t received their UMID cards yet after several months of waiting.

Normally, the UMID card is supposed to be delivered to the SSS member’s address after 4-6 weeks, but there has been an issue with the processing and production of the UMID cards that caused its delay.

According to an advisory posted by the Philippine Social Security System on May 10, 2017,

“The delay in the processing of UMID card applications is due to the stoppage of the Central Verification System (CVS) supervised by the Philippine Statistics Authority (PSA). CVS operation stopped due to high temperature problem in the Data Center of the Department of Information and Communications Technology (DICT) where the PSA keeps the CVS.”

So, if you haven’t received your UMID card yet, we suggest that you send your inquiry directly to so that they can verify the status of your card application and the estimated schedule of delivery.
