List of Accepted ID

The Civil Service Commission or the CSC released a unified list of identification cards (ID’s) that are accepted for transactions within the Commission. If you are applying for the Civil Service Examinations, grant of eligibility under special laws, and certification/authentication of eligibility, you must present any of these acceptable ID’s:

  • Driver’s License/Temporary Driver’s License (LTO O.R. must be presented together with old Driver’s License; O.R. alone is not allowed)/Student Driver’s Permit;
  • Passport;
  • PRC License;
  • SSS I.D.;
  • GSIS I.D. (UMID);
  • Voter’s I.D./Voter’s Certification;
  • BIR/Taxpayer’s I.D. (ATM type/TIN card type with picture);
  • PhilHealth I.D. (must have the bearer’s name, clear picture, signature and PhilHealth number);
  • Company/Office I.D.;
  • School I.D.;
  • Police Clearance/Police Clearance Certificate;
  • Postal I.D.;
  • Barangay I.D.;
  • NBI Clearance;
  • Seaman’s Book;
  • HDMF Transaction I.D.;
  • PWD I.D.;
  • Solo Parent I.D.;
  • Senior Citizen’s I.D.;
  • Alien Certificate of Registration Identity Card (ACR I-CARD);
  • and CSC Eligibility Card.

Any I.D card that is not included in the list will not be accepted by the Commission. In the case that a person’s ID has recently expired, the CSC will be accepting the expired I.D. card provided that the card is expired for a period not exceeding the preceding months of the year reckoning the date of transaction such as filing of exam application, grant of special eligibilities, and certification/authentication of eligibility.

Confused? Okay, let’s make it clearer. Please refer to the sample below for more information regarding this matter:

 Date of Filing of ApplicationDecember 18, 2018
 Preferred I.D. card Valid (not expired) on December 18, 2018
 Expired I.D. card that may be accepted Card with an expiration date from September 17, 2018 to December 18, 2018

(may be accepted until Dec. 31, 2018 for other transactions)

 Expired I.D. card NOT to be accepted Card with an expiration date before September 17, 2018

For applicants without date of birth in their I.D. card/s, original and photocopy of Birth Certificate issued by the Philippine Statistics Authority (PSA, formerly National Statistics Office), or the Local Civil Registry (LCR) printed on Security Paper (SecPa).
