What is an acceptable valid ID to open my account?

As a bank, we need to know who you are! That's why you have to prove your identity with a supported and valid ID when you open your account. 


The list of acceptable IDs are:

  • Driver’s License (or its variants including Conductor’s license, Student permit, Temporary permit (when driver's license is not yet available))
  • Philippine passport 
  • National Professional ID Card
  • Unified Multipurpose ID (UMID)
  • Postal ID
  • Voter’s (COMELEC) ID Card
  • Social Security System (SSS)


The photo of your valid ID uploaded on the app during the account opening will be retained and processed in accordance with the purpose of opening an account with the Bank. 


*Currently, we are unable to accept the newest version of the National Professional ID Card (without cardholder's Date of Birth). Kindly use a different accepted ID to proceed.
