CAGAYAN DE ORO CITY – The data of 17,740 Pantawid Pamilyang Pilipino Program (4Ps) beneficiaries in Northern Mindanao have been integrated into the Philippine Identification System (PhilSys) to streamline social welfare services, reduce redundancy, and ensure that government assistance are distributed most efficiently

Ramel Jamen, Social Welfare and Development director for Region 10 (DSWD-10) said partnering with Philippine Statistics Authority Region 10 (PSA-10) for the Philsys integration signifies the two agencies’ commitment to uplifting the lives of Filipinos.

“By integrating 4Ps beneficiaries into the PhilSys, we are creating a foundation for more targeted, efficient, and accountable social welfare programs,” Jamen said in a statement on Tuesday.

The 4Ps program, which provides financial assistance to impoverished families, plays a crucial role in the country’s poverty alleviation efforts, he noted.

PhilSys is the government’s central identification platform designed to establish a single and reliable identification system for all citizens and resident aliens.

By enrolling 4Ps beneficiaries in the PhilSys, the DSWD, and PSA are taking steps towards improving service delivery and promoting transparency in social welfare programs, PSA-10 Officer-in-Charge Janith Aves said.

“Through PhilSys, we are building a more inclusive and digitally connected society,” Aves said.

Both agencies encouraged all eligible 4Ps beneficiaries to participate in the registration process, which will be carried out through designated registration areas by province.

The PSA also urged those who have not yet registered or received their e-PhilID to do so as soon as possible, as the agency aims to complete the target registration of 92 million individuals by December this year. (Nef Luczon/PNA)
