News: DOLE To Give iDOLE Cards For OFWS Who Will Come Home This December; DOLE/POEA Admits Interlinking Databases For iDOLE Card Is Complicated


The Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE) admitted it is having a hard time developing the OFW ID card or the iDOLE which is supposed to replace the  Overseas Employment Certificates (OECs), which is required to allow Filipinos to work abroad.  “We did not realize it will be this complicated to interlink all databases... this is really difficult,” said POEA officer-in-charge (OIC) Administrator Bernard Olalia.  “We are still preparing the guidelines and the memorandum of understanding. (But) We are almost finished,” he added.  Olalia said the POEA cannot rush the implementation of the OFW ID without sacrificing some of its security measures.  “If we neglect them, there will be many bogus entries. That is what we are avoiding. We don’t want to be put to shame,” he said.  Sponsored Links  The OFW ID is supposed to allow its bearer to transact with government and private agencies, including Pag-IBIG, SSS, and PhilHealth, while also serving as a debit card and an ATM card for the OFW Bank, as well as a beep card for LRT and MRT.   Still, Labor Secretary Silvestre Bello III said he is looking a “symbolic distribution” of the OFW IDs to those set to return home for the Christmas season.  He said this means OFWs set to return home to spend the holidays with their families and loved ones will already get their OFW IDs.  “As soon as they arrive here, we have a gift for them: their iDOLE cards. When they return to work, they won’t need to secure OECs anymore,” said Bello.  The POEA is stopping the processing of OECs from November 13 until December 1.  The temporary suspension will allow the POEA to probe reports of illegal recruitment as well as the supposed anomalies involving some people at the agency.  The suspension covers all OFWs, including direct hires, except those hired by international organizations, members of the diplomatic corps, and sea-based recruitment agencies.
