Can I apply for UMID even if my SSS number is temporary?

No. Anyone with a temporary SSS number won’t be allowed to get a UMID card until it’s converted to a permanent number.

To change to a permanent number (so you’ll qualify for UMID), submit your birth certificate or valid IDs and two copies of accomplished Member Data Change Request form to any SSS branch. Read more: How to Change Temporary SSS Number to Permanent
