Any SSS member can file and avail of the new ID, just fill up the form E-6 using black ink then submit it to the nearest SSS Office that has facilities for SSS ID data capture. You also need to submit documentary requirements together with the form E-6, so bring along any of the primary documents, such as:
·         Passport
·         Professional Regulation Commission (PRC) card
·         Seaman's book

In the absence of any of these documents, the applicant may present any two of the following documents, provided at least one document contains the applicant's photograph:

·         Driver's license
·         Valid National Bureau of Investigation (NBI) clearance
·         School or company ID
·         Postal ID
·         Senior citizen card
·         Major credit card
·         Voter's ID
·         Savings account passbook
·         Alien certificate of registration
·         Government Service Insurance System (GSIS) member's record
·         Certification from the Office of Southern/Northern Cultural Communities or Office of Muslim Affairs
·         Taxpayer Identification Number (TIN) card

Upon submission of your application, the SSS office will obtain your personal data - your fingerprints, facial image, signature, and personal identification number which will be electronically recorded for transfer to your new ID card. The ID card will be processed within 30 days and will be mailed to the address you specified in the form E-6.

As it is issued free for first-time applicants, a replacement fee will be charged in cases of lost ID card or when the ID card is damaged.
