Procedure on How to Apply for a PWD ID Card

Pursuant to Republic Act No. 10754 otherwise known as the AN ACT EXPANDING THE BENEFITS AND PRIVILEGES OF PERSONS WITH DISABILITY (PWD), there are guidelines to follow when registering a PWD for a Person With Disability Identification Card.

According to the NCDA website the Local Government Unit of the City or Municipal Office shall implement the distribution of PWD ID card. Every municipality have their own PDAO center that will facilitate the release and recording of the said procedure.

But there are other facilities where we can obtain or download a PWD-Registration Form:

1. Office of the Mayor
2. Office of the Barangay Captain
3. NCDA or its regional counterpart
4. DSWD offices
5. Participating organizations with Memorandum of Agreements with the DOH
6. DOH Online Registration –  http://pwd.doh.gov.ph/register.php

Requirements

1. Two “1×1” recent ID pictures with the names, and signatures or thumb marks at the back of the picture.
2. One (1) Valid ID
3. Document to confirm the medical or disability condition (See Section IV, D for the required document).

There are 3 ways to obtain the PWD Registration Form:

1. go to your local PWD Registration Centers or PDAO Office
2. download it at http://pwd.doh.gov.ph/additional/files/pdf.pdf
3. register online at http://pwd.doh.gov.ph/register.php

Any of the 3 method will require the PWD to enter accurately and completely the required PWD registration data. Then print the accomplished form (if done online). Affix one (1) ID picture on the accomplished form, and staple the other ID picture with the PWD-Registration Form.

Attach the copy of the other required documents to confirm the medical or disability condition with the PWD-Registration Form. Then pass all documents to any nearest facilities stated above.

The writer as it looks like is not a doctor nor an authorized representative to answer all questions related to classifying a pwd condition. Better yet seek assistance from a nearesg government body.

    Hello po ang aking kapatid ay nakaranas ng stroke last week at sa kasalukuyan ay hindi po nya magamit ang kanan bahagi ng kanyang katawan dahil po sa stroke. Ang alam po namin ay qualified sya for PWD ID. Nag submit po kami ng requirements sa Mandaluyong City hall at ang sabi po sa amin kailangan voter’s ID ang gamitin hindi nila tinatanggap ang ibang valid ID nya tulad ng driver’s license ant passport. Tama po ba na nireject ng mandaluyong city hall ang application namin dahil hindi voter’s id ang ginamit namin para sa application ng kapatid ko. Complete naman po lahat ng requirements namin tulad ng baranggay clearance, valid ID’s at medical certificate.
