SSS members with pending UMID ID releases may avail of free upgrade online
Union Bank of the Philippines (UnionBank) is reminding members of the Social Security System (SSS) who are qualified for a free upgrade to the UnionBank SSS UMID ATM Pay Card to avail of the offer now so they can enjoy an easy and convenient way to receive their SSS proceeds.
Announced a few months ago, the UnionBank SSS UMID ATM Pay Card is a government-issued ID card and fully functional ATM card that is linked to a UnionBank savings account, where SSS members can receive the proceeds of their benefits, loans, and refunds. The savings account doesn’t require maintaining balance.
SSS members who are registered on My.SSS and have applied for the standard UMID card but have not received it yet may avail of the UnionBank SSS UMID ATM Pay Card upgrade for free. To let them know about the upgrade option, SSS also sent invitations to qualified members via email, so they may want to check their email. The upgrade will be available to all SSS members applying for the UMID card eventually.
Qualified members may upgrade their card by logging in to their My.SSS account, or register if they haven’t yet. They will then need to go to the “E-Services” tab, access the “Data Sharing Consent for UMID Pay Card” option, and give their consent to share their information with UnionBank.
Next, they must download the UnionBank Online app, which is available on the Google Play Store, Apple App Store, and Huawei AppGallery. They can also visit https://www.unionbankph.com/unionbankonline and or scan the download QR code.
On the app, they need to select the “Open an Account” option, choose “Government ID,” click “SSS UMID Pay Card Account,” and then click “Agree to the Terms & Conditions and Data Privacy Consent” to continue. After making sure that their SSS information is updated and correct, they will need to complete the form to open their savings account. More details are available at https://www.unionbankph.com/sss-umid.
Upgrading to the UnionBank SSS UMID ATM Pay Card comes with a few perks. Once the free upgrade is completed, funding the account with a minimum of PHP1,000 entitles the owner to a free Jollibee eGC worth P200 and a chance to win a brand-new Mitsubishi Xpander GLS sponsored by UnionBank. Account holders must fund their account on or before Feb 28, 2023 to enjoy these perks.
Because the card is linked to a UnionBank account, users will be able to enjoy fully-featured ATM transactions, as well as digital banking services and advanced features like financial goal setting and payment requests via the UnionBank Online app.
UnionBank has been a long-time partner of the government in the issuance of two-in-one ID and pay cards that have benefited countless Filipinos over the years, and the new UnionBank SSS UMID ATM Pay Card is just one of the many innovative offers that have come from its partnerships with government agencies like the SSS and the Government Service Insurance System (GSIS), to name a few.
