TACLOBAN CITY– The Philippine Statistics Authority (PSA) here in the region continues to offer its services to the beneficiaries of the various programs of the Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD) particularly on the Philippine Identification System (PhilSys).

The roll-out of this colocation activity started on March 11 after all agreements between PSA and DSWD were finalized during the coordination meeting held on 08 March 2024.
PSA PhilSys teams were deployed in various municipalities and barangays to cater populace both one to four years old and above.

The endeavor is being done pursuant to the memorandum issued in January 2024 by the DSWD Secretary Rex Gatchalian with the goal of registering about 24 million beneficiaries and their children nationwide to PhilSys while those aged five years and above who were registered with PhilSys before Feb. 1 must undergo the PhilSys Authentication for them to be able to avail the Family Development Sessions equivalency.
