If you still do not have a Tax Identification Number, it’s high time you get one.  Every Filipino, whether employed or self-employed, must have a TIN.  Your TIN ID is a valid, government-issued ID that will never expire.

It has become easier to apply for a TIN ID card from the BIR because now, you can process it online!  Here are the guidelines, requirements, and steps on how to get a BIR TIN ID.

Requirements:

  • PSA Birth Certificate of applicant
  • One valid ID (especially if you already have an existing TIN but want to get the digitized ID card)

Steps:

  • Bring the above requirements to the nearest BIR office in your area.
  • Fill out the TIN application form.
  • Submit your requirements and the duly filled out TIN application form to the counter and wait for your TIN.
  • After you have been issued a TIN, request to have a TIN ID Card.
  • You can get the ID on the same day as it can be processed in one hour.  However, during peak tax seasons, you might be requested to return the following day to claim your card.

 How to get a TIN ID Online?

Here is the best part!  You may now get a TIN online using the BIR eReg facility.  Here’s how:

  1. Log on to https://ereg.bir.gov.ph or efps.bir.gov.ph
  2. Prepare a valid email address that you can access as this will be required in the registration process.  This is where the BIR will send your TIN registration status and confirmation. tin_number_using_bir_ereg
  3. In the BIR eReg page, key in the details required by the online form as shown above.  Double-check to make sure that all information are accurate.
  4. When all details are confirmed, click on SUBMIT.
  5. The BIR will send you an email regarding the issuance of your TIN.  Make sure to check your email regularly.  If you cannot find the mail in your Inbox, try checking your Spam folder too.

Take Note! You may apply for a Tax Identification Number online only if you have NEVER registered a TIN before.  It is unlawful to have more than one TIN.  Do not do this if you have been issued a TIN before.

Tomorrow we will teach you how to get a replacement for your lost or damaged TIN ID card and how to get a TIN if you are unemployed.

If you have questions about your TIN or tax payments, you may log on to the BIR website at www.bir.gov.ph

If your car’s plate is on ‘coding’ for the day, you shall not be able to drive it anywhere until 8PM – no more window hours anywhere in the metro.

Before this was announced yesterday, car owners can still use their vehicles during the window hours in Malabon, San Juan, Manila, Valenzuela, Paranaque, and Pasig.  That means that between 10AM to 3PM (and 9AM to 4PM for Parañaque and Pasig), a ‘coded’ car can still be used in these areas and not get a ticket from the MMDA.  However, it has been observed that the window hours cause confusion among drivers; the proliferation of fake news about the number coding scheme in social media does not help either.  Some drivers even lose track of time and find themselves in the middle of the road long after the window hours have passed (and therefore, end up getting a ticket).  All these make Metro Manila’s traffic problem worse for everyone.

And so beginning March 26, 2019, all number coded cars will not be allowed on national roads and designated Mabuhay lanes from 7AM to 8PM, except for areas that do not implement the number coding scheme such as Marikina, Taguig, and Navotas.  No more window hours for everyone.

The MMDA is hopeful that the straightforward scheme will help decongest main thoroughfares in Metro Manila.  Seen to greatly benefit from the new directive are the North Avenue and Commonwealth areas in Quezon City where major road works for the MRT are in full swing.

Meanwhile, the following types of vehicles are exempted from the number coding scheme:

  • Emergency vehicles (ambulances, police mobiles, fire trucks)
  • Government vehicles
  • Medical practitioners with valid emergency
  • Motorcycles

The sooner you are able to secure a passport for your child, the easier for you to take him on trips overseas and make traveling a part of his formative years.  A passport is also a valid ID that your child must have while growing up.  There are, however, cases when getting a passport for a child may prove to be challenging, especially when important documents are missing or when his parents could not personally appear before the DFA during the child’s passport appointment.

This week’s series on the passport application for minor children shall include the required documents for the following cases:

  1. The child has no PSA Birth Certificate or Report of Birth yet.

  6. The child has undergone the process of domestic adoption.
  7. The child is undergoing or has undergone the process of foreign adoption/Inter-Country Adoption Board (ICAP) adoption process.
  8. The child is a foundling and NOT for adoption.

Visit us every day to get the complete list of additional supporting documents and acceptable valid IDs that the DFA will require in case your child falls under any of the above-mentioned cases.  The lists were lifted from the www.passport.gov.ph website.  If you missed the general or core requirements for minor child’s application, you can read our article on that topic here.

 Remember that you have to have fulfilled the Core Requirements before you work on the supporting documents that correspond to your child’s case.

What are the Supporting Documents when:

  1. The child has no PSA Birth Certificate/Report of Birth
  • If born in the Philippines:
    • Submit a Certified True Copy of the Local Civil Registrar (LCR) Birth Certificate authenticated by the PSA.

  • The SPA or Affidavit of Support and Consent must have a copy of the parent/s valid ID and/or passport attached.

Due to the recent updates in the documentary requirements for passport application and renewal, my relatives (especially the seniors!) had a hard time figuring out whether they should bring copies of their PSA birth certificates and PSA marriage certificates on their appointment date.  Some were saying they must bring their PSA civil registry documents, while others were saying they may skip that part and just bring their valid IDs.

The best place to get the best answers would, of course, be the website of the Department of Foreign Affairs.  So in today’s blog, I will be sharing with you the most updated list of documentary requirements, accepted IDs, and supporting documents that the DFA accepts for FIRST TIME PASSPORT ADULT APPLICANTS.

ADULT NEW APPLICATION

  1. CORE REQUIREMENTS
  1. Confirmed Online Appointment
  2. Personal appearance
  3. Accomplished Application Form
  4. Original copy of PSA Birth Certificate on Security Paper
    • Married Females (who are using their spouse’s last name) must also submit an original copy of PSA Marriage Certificate on Security Paper or Report of Marriage.
    • Local Civil Registrar copy may be required if PSA Birth Certificate is not clear or cannot be read.
  5. Any of the following valid IDs with one photocopy.

Note: If the female applicant opts to retain her maiden name, the PSA Marriage Certificate is no longer required.

*Additional requirements may be required.  Please refer to the section below for additional requirements for Adult New Applications.

 LIST OF VALID IDs

  1. Social Security System (SSS)/Government Service Insurance System (GSIS) Unified Multi-purpose Identification (UMID) card.
  2. Land Transportation Office (LTO) Driver’s License.  Student Permit may be accepted if in card format.
  3. Professional Regulatory Commission (PRC) ID.
  4. Overseas Workers Welfare Administration (OWWA)/Integrated Department of Labor and Employment (iDOLE) card.
  5. Commission on Elections (COMELEC) Voter’s ID or Voter’s Certification from the Election Officer with Dry Seal.
  6. Philippine National Police (PNP) Firearms License
  7. Senior Citizen ID
  8. Airman License (issued August 2016 onwards)
  9. School ID (if applicable)
  10. Current Valid ePassport (for Renewal of ePassport)
  11. For applicants based overseas, they may use their host government-issued IDs showing their Philippine citizenship. (Example: Residence Card)

Important Reminder: The Department may require additional supporting documents as may be necessary.

The DFA requires various supporting documents depending on the applicant’s case.  For example, you do not have a PSA birth certificate and could not retrieve a Report of Birth from the LCR of your birth certificate.  Or yours is a Late Registered birth certificate or a female applicant’s marriage has been dissolved and she wants to use her maiden surname in her passport.

To get the list of supporting documents based on these differing cases, follow our blog and Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/MasterCitizen/

See you again tomorrow!

Last week, the President signed into law the bill that intends to automatically enroll every Filipino in the National Health Insurance Program or Republic Act No. 11223.  The program will be handled by the Philippine Health Insurance Corporation or PhilHealth.

What can Filipinos look forward to with the new health law?

Every Pinoy is now considered to possess immediate eligibility and therefore, must have access to all aspects of health care including:

  1. Preventive Health Care:
    1. Wellness visits and standard immunizations
    2. Screenings for blood pressure, cancer, cholesterol, depression, obesity.
    3. Pediatric screenings for hearing, vision, and developmental disorders.
    4. Other similar procedures.
  2. Promotive Health Care
    1. Child and family nutrition
    2. Injury prevention
    3. Physical activities
    4. Smoking cessation programs
    5. Other similar procedures.
  3. Curative Health Care
    1. Chemotherapy
    2. Antibiotics
    3. Radiation therapy
    4. Dialysis treatment
    5. Surgeries
  4. Rehabilitative Health Care
    1. Physical and occupational therapy
    2. Speech-language pathology
    3. Psychiatric rehabilitation services
    4. Other similar procedures.
  5. Palliative Health Care
    1. For patients with chronic diseases and need oxygen support.
    2. End-stage heart failure
    3. Debilitating stroke
    4. Cancer that has spread beyond the original tumor/site.
    5. End-stage liver failure, kidney failure, or multi-system organ failure.
    6. End-stage HIV/AIDS that does not respond to anti-viral treatments.
    7. Other similar cases.
  6. Medical, dental, mental, and emergency health services

Patients needing such medical assistance (or any other type of assistance not mentioned above) would be registered with a primary health care provider of their choice and will be included in PhilHealth’s primary care benefits package.

In order for PhilHealth to sustain the demand for quality health care under the new law, membership rates will gradually increase by .5% annually.  This, too, shall cause income ceilings for contributions to go up by Php 10,000 per year.  Contributory members can look forward to getting more benefits as their premiums increase to encourage the able members to pay higher premiums.

What are your thoughts on the Universal Health Care law?  We’d be glad to know.

Sept 19

The Philippine Statistics Authority (PSA) is anticipated to pilot run the National ID system in December this year, targeting one million Filipinos to be given their very own national ID under the Philippine Identification System.  The national ID shall be honored in both private and government transactions, especially those that require the confirmation of a person’s identity, marital status, birth, and other pertinent personal information.

Application Requirements

All Filipinos residing in and outside the country are encouraged to secure their own national IDs as soon as the government opens its doors for applications.  The only requirement at this point is your PSA birth certificate to be presented during application.  This may be the best time to secure a copy of your birth certificate so you can be first in line when PSA starts accepting ID applications.

You can have your PSA birth certificate delivered to you by ordering online at www.psahelpline.ph.

Quick Facts About the National ID

  • The ID will contain 10 basic information: the owner’s full name, sex, date of birth, place of birth, blood type, address, and citizenship (whether he is a Filipino or an alien).
  • Optional information are: marital status, mobile number, and email addresses.  These are subject to change over time.
  • Biometric information to be collected from the applicant are: front-facing photograph, full set of fingerprints, and iris scan.
  • Parents can register their children for a PhilSys Number (PSN) as soon as the child is issued his birth certificate.  The child’s biometric information will only be captured when he turns five years old and will be repeated by the time he turns 15 to 18 years old.
  • The national ID shall not be considered to replace the Philippine Passport, a Professional Regulation Commission license, and a driver’s license.

The rest of the details of the National ID, its requirements and processes, shall be released to the public as soon as the Implementing Rules and Regulations have been finalized.

June 19 (1)

It is that time of the year when dengue mosquitoes seem to be more active in hunting their prey.  Young and old alike can fall victim to these pesky insects that carry the deadly dengue virus.  It is no secret why emergency rooms are never without a patient exhibiting the early signs of dengue fever.

Does PhilHealth cover dengue fever cases?

Yes.  That is why it is important that you keep your PhilHealth account updated because you never know when serious illnesses might attack.

PhilHealth’s coverage for dengue fever is based on the severity of the patient’s case.  There are simple cases of dengue and there are those that are listed as severe.  PhilHealth coverage will always be based on the attending physician’s final diagnosis.  Below is the list of case rates for dengue fever:

DESCRIPTION

CASE RATE PROFESSIONAL FEE

HEALTH CARE INSTITUTION FEE

Dengue without warning signs: Dengue fever (DF) Dengue hemorrhagic fever Grades 1 and 2; Dengue hemorrhagic fever without warning signs. 10,000.00 3,000.00 7,000.00
Dengue with warning signs; Dengue hemorrhagic fever with warning signs. 10,000.00 3,000.00 7,000.00
Severe Dengue; Severe Dengue Fever; Severe Dengue hemorrhagic fever. 16,000.00 4,800.00 11,200.00

To avoid inconvenience and delays in your claims, make sure that your PhilHealth contributions are updated every month.  You never know when diseases may strike and your only assurance of financial assistance during times of emergency is a flawless record with PhilHealth.

Keep your homes and yards dengue-free and make sure that your children are protected against mosquito bites while they are in school or at play.

If you have questions about PhilHealth, send us an email and we will do our best to find the answers for you.
