The Civil Service Commission (CSC) has prescribed a unified list of I.D. cards to be accepted for transactions involving civil service examinations, grant of eligibility under special laws and CSC issuances, and certification/authentication of eligibility.

The accepted I.D. cards are the following—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.

The CSC stressed that all other I.D. cards not included in the list will not be accepted. At least one (1) I.D. card is required to be presented or submitted for any of the said transactions.

In the event that an applicant’s I.D. card 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. To give more clarity, below is a sample illustration:
