Is UMID the "national ID"?
- No. It's a mere result of inter-agency efforts to give convenience in government transactions and to save cost of service delivery.

what if I dont know my Philhealth and Pag-ibig No., what i know only is my SSS No. reply pls.
I too had the same problem. What I did was this.
Philhealth: I went to the philhealth website and got their email address. I then emailed requesting my Philhealth Number and they replied quickly with the information I requested. I made sure to Include my full details.
Pag-Ibig No: There was this Form number or tracking number that i forgot to list down before which then resulted in me not being able to recover my number. I resubmitted an application form through the Pag-Ibig website and noted that it was to update my information. The form was then filled out and I got my Pag-Ibig number. Then I recovered that lost Application from before (I remembered i backed up in my email the complete online form). Both Had the same Pag-Ibig Number. So no worries.

This is not a SSS website. I believe the the information here was created to post awareness on how to apply for an UMID.
Please refrain from entering your/others SSS number since that should be confidential.
