B.12 If found to be a valid application, the receiving officer of the local SWO or NCDA shall record control number and issues ID to PWDs.

B.13 As to the disability that is not apparent, the establishments may ask from the PWD additional documents as proofs as to his/her disability.

C. Validity and Renewal of the ID Card

The ID card issued to the PWD shall be valid for three years only for the purpose of issuing identification cards. The first issuance shall be for free.

    @lemuel, I don’t mean to be rude either but I do not understand why the NCDA website does not have a downloadable application/registration form for the PWD ID. The applicants have disabilities, they should be spared from unnecessary bureaucratic red tape. I would think a downloadable form would be the first thing on the website.

    Hello, is the PWD ID Card available at Caloocan City? I saw your list of municipality that gives PWD ID, Caloocan City is not included, we’re hoping that our Officials here in Caloocan City would approve the PWD ID , many would benefit from it. Thanks and God Bless!

    May we request for 20% discount at Mercury Drug store, same as benefits received by senior citizens? Being sick, we spend so much for medicines and it would be a big help enjoying discounts. They also have basic commodities in most of the branches so we can buy our groceries from their store. Thank you very much and MORE POWER!

    Hi! I just got my son his PWD ID but when we used it last night at Mercury Drug Putatan, Muntinlupa they said that they don’t honor such ID because there are no memo yet from their head office and that no such codes for the said discount. They also blamed DOH about this. I felt bad and a little discriminated because of this. The supposed privileges for my son were not given. It also made me think that how come SM Malls were able to do something about it but other companies can’t. I applied for the ID for the said Discounts and privileges and yet, my son was not able to enjoy the said benefits. I hope that the authorities could do something about this ASAP.

    I hope NCDA will also be in the frontline in promoting inclusive education. Their are many children who can benefit from schools who practice this policy. Students who otherwise will drop out of school because they learn differently will be better served.
    The cooperation of the DOH is important to help identify these children who are also in school, so proper supports can be given to them.
    Finally financial assistance is needed by Public Elementary Schools who wish to practice Inclusive Education, for the training of teachers to handle students with developmental and cognitive delays.

    @Dr. Ingrid R. Yap, Ph.D.,

    Hi Dr. Ingrid,

    I wonder if NCDA is reading all the posts here. In any case, I think less-abled people or DISABLED people as they call us should already start helping ourselves. It may be possible that the NCDA is not yet that organized or simply lacks the funds to get going. Perhaps we should start a blog or website of our own. I hope we can be more organized and pool resources together (talent, money, information, etc).

    We had the same experience with Mercury Drug. This is totally unbelievable. You know that most of the “PWD’s” would be needing medicines and yet the biggest drug company would not honor it! They claim to have not been informed about it and are still waiting for the memo from another Government Institution.

    How long do we have to wait. If a PWD’s life depend on this sky high prized medicines! Please, do something about this. A few pesos saved would go along way for PWD’s.

    Hi,

    I think the best thing to do is not patronize Mercury if the NCDA cannot yet tackle the drug store “giant” at this time. If we, the less-abled, together with our friends and relatives will patronize other drugstores who care for us, maybe they will grow and branch out and greedy Mercury will soon be extinct

    And naghahanap din ako ng trabaho pero bakit my discrimination pa rin nangyayari, diba wala na yun ngayon?

    Sir/ Madam:

    My name is Michael Jan D. Sumalileng. and I am deaf and Pwd. So i was training The nova Foundation last Jan – march 2009.

    *One of our trainees, Mr. Michael Jan D. Sumalileng, a graduate of Miriam College with a Diploma on Computer Technology, represented Batch 14 to do a data entry drill during the talk of Mr. Noli Agcaoili, President of Nova Foundation, at the 3rd Annual BPO & Call Center Training Convention held at EDSA Shangri-La Hotel on February 11, 2009.

    *After four weeks of training with NOVA-CBM ICT TRAINING CENTER, Mr. Sumalileng has showed great improvement and has now an average typing skill of more than 12,000ksph.

    The NOVA-CBM ICT Training Center has high hopes that the involvement of NOVA FOUNDATION to this event would not only make the BPO industry aware of the PWDs, like the deaf, the blind and the orthopedically impaired, but most importantly to see that they are capable of doing the job, if and only they are given the opportunity. As what Mr. Agcaoili emphasized during his talk: ‘IT CAN BE DONE: EMPOWERING THE DIFFERENTLY ABLED FOR CALL CENTER AND BPO POSTS”.

    But i was Nothing working find job fair when i Still stay home untill to now for lost 2year half. Please Help me deaf for apply Job fair ( Government Offices (Office of the President, Office of the First Gentleman, Quezon City Hall, Malabon City Hall, Manila City Hall, Department of Foreign Affairs)

    I am a visually impared filipina residing in japan for more than 5 years.
    Sometimes, I visit Philippines for a vacation. I am also a PWD, do I have a right to apply for a PWD I.D. even though I am spending most of my time/days here in japan?
    Actually, I have a PWD booklet issued here in Japan. I just also want to know if I can use that booklet in the Philippines to avail the benefits of a PWD?
    Last year I went to the Philippines to spend my Christmas vacation.
    My aunt told me that I could avail discounts for transpo, foods, medicines or even for groceries but I don’t have an ID to show the store for me to avail those benefits.
    Next time, when I visit philippines, can I use my PWD booklet issued here in Japan to avail those benefits and discounts?

    I suggest that you register with your local SWDO if you will in the Philippines to be issued the said disability ID.

    Hi last night, March 29, 2011, I tried to use my PWD Card at Mercury Drug Greenhills Shopping Center (the one beside Body Shop and HSBC). They refused to give me discount because according to their manager, they were still awaiting the decision of the Court of Appeals? Is this accurate? I thought Mercury Drug already signed an MOA agreeing to honor the discount.

    [Reply to this comment]

    Ronald Reply:

    @Zhai Zee, hello zhai,

    I also am a PWD. I read about this MOA. I think this will begin by April of 2011. Hopefully, they entertain the discount as much as we are already in the first week of April. I also buy my medicines at Mercury but most of the times at watsons who gives 20% discount with the RX. Hope this helps.

    Hi to everyone… I have a brother also with disability. I have already applied him for the PWD ID card and was already given to him but not the purchase booklet which is important. The persons working in our DSWD said that there is no booklet yet as to there is still no one to sign the booklet, they said that they havn’t yet formed an organization that sounds like PDAW. They said that they are still waiting for the assembly and advise me to follow up after a month. I just wonder why they are able to issue PWD ID cards but not with the purchase booklet. Aren’t they suppose to be issued together? I just hope that by posting here, someone in authority can call the attention of the local government here in BATAC CITY responsible for the issuance of the said matter. Thank you so much…

    Hello to everyone. i have a brother who also is a differently abled person and I applied him for a pwd id card. we are from Batac City Ilocos Norte. They have already given the ID Card but not the purchase booklet. the dswd here said it’s because they don’t have someone to sign the booklets, haven’t done the assembly daw and don’t have a PDAW yet. Don’t know what PDAW is though. It’s just so sad that PWDs here in our place cannot enjoy their rights because of them not doing their job right and not being serious with the RA 9442. All they do all day in the office as I go there often following up the purchase booklet for my brother is just sit there chit-chatting all day. I hope that by posting here, someone in authority will read this and call their attention, DSWD of Batac City.

    I had bad several experiences with different branches of mercury drug while availing of discount for the purchase of medicine, for maintenance, in favor of my mentally retarded son, pending pa daw with the Court of Appeals, etc. When RA 9442 was implemented, yong booklet naman ang next problem coz our municipality didn’t issue/give us. My son’s PWD ID was issued in 2009 but without the booklet. Sad to say, up to now WALA pa ring booklet sila na maibigay. Reason nila na UNREASONABLE: wala silang form na makuha sa Region para tularan. 2011 na, they should have anticipated the printing of d booklet. Pwede po bang paki ALARM ang Office of DSW sa Bay, Laguna. So expensive ang maintenance medicine ng son ko, sa Mercury Drug lang meron. Please help me secure a booklet if you have one. Ako na po ang mag initiate at ibigay ko sa kanila

    please make the pwds laws stronger and with a teeth and being implemented to every provinces cities/municipalities because some of the following agencies there are not knowing about pwds law specially the R.A. 7277/9442 and 10070 that would be enforce to be lead agencies whom handle.

    because if those agencies are follows i am sure that public discrimination, employees concern being less and give the equal opportunities and the rights, benefits and privileges shall given to the people with disabilities.

    Person Disability Affairs office shall establish in those mention but most of the agencies concern they don’t create and follow what are the pwds law. that why more pwds are setting a part less- attention and priority.

    Good Day. I just want to ask if it is true that the card issued to me last Sept 28, 2011 is no longer valid because you change your rules regarding the Chronic type of Disability . When I applied for the PWD in Pasay they wrote in the card that the type of disability I have is Chronic. Yesterday Mercury Drug store in Pasay Rotonda did not honor that card and ask me to contact you to clear this matter. Is it true that you change the rule? How can I change my PWD id? Do I have to report again to Social Welfare Department in pasay for another PWD id? I will be undergoing again a series of treatment by next week and my immune system is again impaired. I’m afraid I will not be able to apply personally for that PWD id for the next 5-6 months.

    I am a breast cancer survivor and was happy to learn that PWD ids can be issued to us considering the expenses we have to live with. I went to the Makati City Hall and talked to the DSWD head there. They said they do not give PWD ids to cancer survivors and that we have to lose a leg or be physically disabled to avail of one. I submitted complete documents and was asked additional reqts : a doctor’s certificate that I am disabled in such a way. I lost my left breast. But this doesn’t count? They also said I don’t look sick. How can I apply for a PWD Id? Thanks

ROSE BALDOZA.. halos po 7buwan ng may ID ang apo ko pero wala pa ring purchase booklets.. anu pong apat naming gawin? andon po kasi na ang rason nila ay wala pa daw budget>>> tapos minsan nman po idadaan naman daw sa biddengs.. lumapit na nga po ako sa naga city kay MR. MOLEN.. ito po ang sabi nya sakin kausapin ko daw ang nangangasiwa dito ng DSWD dito sa sipocot cam. sur.binigyan po ako ng sample booklets ni MR. MOLEN para po ipakita ko sa sipocot DSWD dito sa amin.. awa ng dios wala pa rin pong aksyon hanggang sa ngayun… sana po ay matugunan nyo ang aming problema dito sa sipocot camarines sur na pinamumunuan ng aming Mayor na siMAYOR OGIE ASTOR…. salamat po..

    sana po may official person na makasagot. I am an ovarian cancer survivor (diagnosed 2012, treated within 2012). I inquired if i am qualified for a pwd card and was told there should be evidence (proven through a doctor’s certificate) that the illness caused some form of disability. the card is not issued daw becuase of the cancer but because of the disability due to cancer, if any. I read in the icanservefoundation website that “As a chronic illness requiring continuous monitoring and treatment, cancer is classified as a disability and cancer patients/survivors are counted among persons with disabilities (PWDs).” Given this, hindi po ba enough na ipakita yung documents stating that the person was diagnosed with cancer? Ano po ba ang official na rule when it comes to cancer survivors? Thanks you and God bless!

    Hi Good Evening!

    Qualified po ba ako na makakuha ng PWD card since i was diagnosed po ng Bipolar affective disorder? Lifetime po ang gamutan ng sakit ko, maicoconsider po ba na disability ang mental health illness ko para makakuha ng PWD card? Ang laki po kasi ng gastos at ang mahal ng gamot ko, mga tita ko lang ang sumusuporta sa akin sa gamutan sa ngayon. Gusto ko po sana makakuha ng PWD card para sana mabawasan ang gastos nila dahil nga po lifetime na medication ang kailangan ko.

    Sana po ay masagot ninyo ang tanong ko. Maraming salamat.

    @Aya,

    Pumunta ako ng munisipyo noong January at applying for PWD card na ako. Considered ang bipolar disorder as Psychosocial disability kaya pwede sya i-apply for PWD card. Binigyan ako ng form at ang requirements ay picture and medical abstract. Matatagalan nga lang ako kumuha ng medical abstract kasi kailangan pa ng Psychological test at sa march 10 pa ako makakapag exam, after that 3 mos. pa ata bago mairelease yung result ng exam plus days of processing pa sa munisipyo.

    Hi! I am a polio victim since one. I am now 49 years old and working professionally as a Hotel General Manager. I usually encounter employers who when they negatively realize that I walk differently, started to make me feel unwanted after all the good work I’ve done to their property. Is there a law or a special employee/ employer protection for specially able person? like special rate for salary taxes, protection from employment and the like.

    I would appreciate a comment. Thanks!

    Im a father of a 4 year old boy with autism. We got him a PWD ID in QC.
    When I present the ID to J.CO Donuts at SM fairview. they told me they dont entertain such ID’s unless i have the child with me. I told them i have my signature at the back and Im the father. Still they didnt bother consider.
    I PAID for my son’s donut without discount.

    It means if you have a child with a more motor deficient function you have to carry them with you just to buy some donuts. otherwise, your PWD ID is Non-sense to them.

    Hope the management of J.CO DONUTS SM fairview have some heart and consideration for special childrens.

    A friendly advice, can you kindly include a downloadable application form for PWD ID. I went to our provincial municipality Health Center and DSWD office and also the office of our Barangay Captain in Hagonoy, Bulacan, but they all don’t have any form. If they don’t have it how shall we start to apply. At least, in this web site, if you include it in your “downloadable” we can have a head start.
