Simple Steps on How to Get PhilHealth ID

Before claiming any PhilHealth benefits, members have to provide their Member Data Record (MDR) and/or PhilHealth ID. The latter, however, is often overlooked by PhilHealth members even if one can easily get the ID without charge. After all, you usually only need to provide your membership number for most transactions. Apart from having a valid ID that you can use for government and non-government transactions, owning an ID from PhilHealth also allows you to maximize your PhilHealth contributions. More importantly, Filipinos should know and have their PhilHealth Identification Number (PIN) ready, as it is now a requirement prior to receiving the COVID-19 vaccine.[1] It will also be required to claim benefits should you get sick with COVID-19 or if you experience adverse reactions from the COVID-19 vaccine. Thus, it’s important to know how to get PhilHealth ID number. In case you’re one of those members who don’t have the ID yet, here are the steps for getting one. How to Get PhilHealth ID Be a PhilHealth Member First If you are currently employed in a private company, expect your HR officer to accomplish your PhilHealth membership and provide you with an ID. However, unemployed and self-employed individuals need to register as a “Voluntary Member” and then apply to get a PhilHealth ID card. PhilHealth Requirements for Membership The following are the documents that you need to prepare and submit at any PhilHealth Local Insurance Office (LHIO). These are also the PhilHealth ID requirements for unemployed and self-employed individuals. Two accomplished copies of the PhilHealth Member Registration Form (PMRF)[2] Two latest 1×1…

Grow Your Venture with the Best Credit Cards for Business

For entrepreneurs, credit cards for business is not just an option but rather a necessity. Whether you’re a freelancer, online seller, or solopreneur with several employees, there’s a card that best meets your needs for managing your business finances. Here’s everything to know about business credit cards in the Philippines and how to find the perfect card for your venture. Why Get a Credit Card for Business? Having a business credit card allows you to conveniently pay for various costs—like equipment purchase, accounts payable, and more—without using cash or issuing a check. When you need to pay with cash, you can use a card as a source of credit instead of getting a loan. Access to cash is faster with a credit card than a business loan. Also, you get to borrow only what you need when you use a credit card specifically for business. The best advantage of credit cards for business is how it makes tax preparation and filing more convenient. With a dedicated credit card, you can keep your personal and business expenses separate. It’s easier to compute your income tax that way. You may also deduct from your tax the interest and other credit card fees as part of your business expenses. How to Choose the Best Credit Card for Business Determine What You Spend the Most on Perks such as credit card rewards and cashback vary from one card to another. Choose a business credit card that rewards you the most on the types of purchases and payments you often make. For example, some credit…

How Millennials Can Prepare for Financial Independence

Financial independence seems to be on everyone’s mind. People long for the day that they can earn enough to afford pursuing their dreams; from starting their own family to starting their own business. However, this reality may not be as far off as it first appears. Here are a few tips that can help you prepare for financial freedom. Keep Track of Your Spending Take the time to record and review your spending. This practice will help you see where your money is going and ensure that you are aware of any unnecessary costs that may have slipped by you. Financial independence can only arise once you make enough money to overcome the cost of your lifestyle. Additionally, you must factor in the costs you will incur as you move forward in life and begin pursuing greater goals. Avoid falling into financial difficulties by being aware of your spending habits. Get a sense of your consumption and saving patterns so that you can prepare accordingly. Build Good Budgeting and Saving Habits Once you understand your necessities, set a budget so that you won’t find yourself unwittingly overspending. Put the rest of your income into savings. You’ll be surprised to find just how much money you can gain with smart habits that can be redirected toward smart investments. Allocate a certain amount of money for your fixed expenses (those that are the same every month) and for your variable expenses (those that may fluctuate from month to month) each month. Continue to track your spending and adjust your budgeting until it…

Airport Fees Every Traveler Should Remember

Travel has become a part of the Filipino lifestyle. In fact, in 2016, the Philippines amassed 5.1 million departures to 42 destinations worldwide. The number is expected to increase this year as plane tickets become cheaper and as more budget airlines operate in the Philippines. Whether you’re traveling abroad or domestic, you need to secure a budget to pay off plane tickets, accommodation, and airport fees. The latter may be heavy on the pocket, so don’t forget to keep a budget for that. Below are the airport fees you need to prepare for when traveling around or outside the Philippines. Airport Fees on International Terminals Travel Tax Philippines The Philippine Travel Tax is a fee imposed by the government on individuals leaving the country. Passengers flying economy class are required to pay PHP 1,620 while passengers with first class tickets need to shell out PHP 2,700. Dependents of Overseas Filipino Workers, however, only need to pay PHP 300 to PHP 400. Learn more about these fees here.
