Who qualifies for the PWD ID?

Many of those who have disabilities have yet to claim their PWD ID and this article is for those who do not know if they qualify for the PWD ID and be able to claim the benefits and privileges that go with it.

According to Dr. Myla Rostrata of the Department of Health in Region 3, there are seven categories that classify the ID applicants These categories provide the basis for the granting of the IDs. These categories are:

Visual impairment – as far as we in PWDPhil know, there is no set grade that is considered to be the threshold that separates the disabled from the non-disabled. However, DOH specialists in the PDAO (persons with disabilities affairs office) in your town or city hall have a set protocol for determining who is visually impaired and who can qualify for a PWD ID based on visual acuity, or the lack of it. If the applicant’s eyes are discernible to be blind, then the applicant need not bring a clinical abstract to prove the disability, just bring your government-issued ID.

Hearing loss – anyone who cannot hear is considered to be disabled. However, there are various degrees of hearing impairment depending on the cause of the hearing loss. If you think that you are beginning to lose your hearing, it is best to try to have it treated right away. There are many occupations the depend on one’s ability to hear. If the applicant’s inability to hear is apparent, then there is no need to bring a clinical abstract to the PDAO when applying for the PWD ID.

Orthopedic disability – this category includes all those who have had amputations done to any of the extremities. This also includes those who have stunted growth because of dwarfism, a medical condition where the patient’s height and extremities did not grow to full mature size.

Learning disability – for students who cannot adjust to mainstream regular classes, they will need to go through the special education class program found in every public school. A learning disability is something that hampers or interferes with a student’s ability to learn basic concepts in math and science, knowledge that will help the student cope with everyday life. Without a basic education, the student will be unable to buy groceries, pay bills, earn a living or do any activity that requires critical thinking and stock knowledge.

Psychosocial disability – this is a category that includes those who have psychological and social problems that can leave them the sufferer unable to do what he/she normally does. These disabilities are not apparent and may not be easy to understand or to explain to health center workers who do not have a science background, thus the need for a clinical abstract to present to the PDAO, health center or DSWD regional office workers. Normally there are medical professionals who assess the application for PWD IDs, though some of them are not regularly available.

Chronic illness – There are illnesses that may not inherently lead to a disability but have been known to cause disability when a complication sets in. One such case is diabetes. Inherently diabetes does not cause disability. However, the inability to process sugar in your body may lead to complications such as diabetic retinopathy which could lead to blindness, sepsis which could lead to gangrene and later, amputation, or heart problems which could lead to a stroke. Again, some chronic illnesses are not apparent and will need a clinical abstract before a PWD ID is granted.

Mental disability – Sufferers of mental illness are automatically considered to be disabled and are sometimes automatically granted a PWD ID, as some mental illnesses can be apparent. Those with mental disabilities will usually need medical attention, constant supervision and assisted living arrangements as they are mostly unable to take care of themselves. Included in this category are children with Down syndrome, bi-polar disorder, post traumatic stress disorder and schizophrenia. Sufferers of this category will need a medical/clinical abstract prior to the issuance of a PWD ID

Those who apply for PWD IDs must also remind their doctors or medical professionals that any information about the state or the nature of their disability must be handled with utmost confidentiality. A Pinoy with disability has the right not to divulge any medical or health-related information about themselves. As the non-disabled people have the right not be harassed for their medical informatio, PWDs should also be allowed to exercise the same right.

However, I have tons of complications secondarily to my autoimmune disease (inflammatory bowel disease, rheumatoid arthritis and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease) which qualities me to have a PWD card. Anyway, to make things short you have to provide a medical certificate that indicates that you have complications after the total thyroidectomy.

  46. I tried getting a PWD id today, but was denied. I have cancer but do not manifest any disability. They said that cancer should manifest me signs of Psychosocial, hearing, visual, mental, orthopedic, learning, and mental disability before they can grant me one.

  47. I tried to apply for PWD ID in mandaluyong city hall but was denied by the assessor. I was informed that having uncontrolled diabetes and hypertension are not qualified illness unless i developed a chronic kidney disease or had stroke. How true is this?

    • I think pwede dahil the real definition to qualify as PWD is that those that have long term physical, mental, intellectual or sensorial impairment which in interaction with various barriers may hinder those people with 3 aspects :impairment, disability and handicapped as PWD their full participation in society on an equal basis with others that have 60% normalcy. Meaning those that are said to have 40 or greater percentage of impairment, disability or handicapped in relation to ADLS are given PWD cards. Others are regarded psychosocial or mental disorders in which some are impairments only and considered temporary disabilities.

    • +1

      I guess the rationale is that with type 1 you were born with it and that you lived your entire life with it. To say that the illness changed the quality of your life for the worse would be untrue.

      Not only that type 1 (and 2) people have been in the work force, living normal lives. It’s the complications of diabetes that changes it for the worse.

  74. Hi, I have PCOS, my eye grade is at 350/375 with 100 astigmatism, and I also have scintillating scotoma. Are these considered?

    • Diabetic is a double edged sword, meaning diabetic itself is not debilitating, but the complications of it causes the chronic illnesses that makes you qualify for a pwd id.

      So… Your abstract should include your loss of feelings in your feet, muscle mass loss due to degeneration in your arms and body, degenerative vision loss.

      Anything that could lead you to lose your employment because you can no longer function would be ideal in getting that id

  75. I have recently been diagnosed with depression, do I qualify for the PWD card? The medicines are a bit expensive.

    This had been after a vehicular accident 13 years ago and the loss was not apparent that time. But throughout the years it has been causing problems like distress (self-doubt, anxiety), and diminished enjoyment on normal things (aroma of food, scents), and enduring phantom bad smells.

  80. Good day!
    just a query lang po, if a person got a motor accident and have a clinical management like ankle fusion, does this person qualify to be a PWD? If yes, what are the necessary documents to be presented at the PDAO?
    I got to ask this query because, I used to apply for this PWD ID but I’m hesitant ‘coz I didn’t know what are the justly grounds for it. I got a motor accident way back last year 2016, and I got a clinical management through operation (ankle fusion) on my left foot.
    Hope you can help me about this matter. Thank you!
