  1. My relative does not have a UMID. She was able to get a National ID at a mall near where she lives. She was informed that eventually the UMID while be phased out daw, so she was encouraging me to get a National ID too. Di ko gets. Andami ko nang valid IDs eh – UMID, TIN, Driver’s license, passport. Is it really necessary for me to get a National ID? Tried googling if UMID will be really phased out, but I can’t find info online.
