On the PhilIDs affected in the fire at the Manila Central Post Office
Date of Release: 22 May 2023
Reference No. 23ONS00-080
The Philippine Statistics Authority (PSA) is closely coordinating with the Philippine Postal Corporation (PHLPost) regarding the PhilIDs that may have been affected by the fire at the Manila Central Post Office.
Based on the initial information provided by the PHLPost, only PhilIDs for delivery in the City of Manila were affected by the fire. The PSA is working with the PHLPost to determine the number of PhilIDs affected. We also wish to clarify that PhilIDs for delivery of the PHLPost are sorted and stored at the PHLPost Central Mail Exchange Center (CMEC) in Pasay City and were unaffected by the fire.
We assure the public that the PhilIDs affected by the fire shall be replaced by the PSA at no additional cost to concerned registered persons, following protocols set by the PSA for such scenarios.
