      Madali lang mag apply for a UMID card and getting one is free of charge. It has security features similar with the new Phlpost ID. Kung GSIS member ka, mas madaling mag apply ng loan at mag check ng account through GWAPS kiosk gamit ang UMID because all you need to do is tap the card on UMID-compliant GWAPS machine to begin transacting!
