I was happy when Google added Western Union Quick Cash to deliver earnings and speed up Adsense payments. This morning i went to a Western Union Center here in Batangas to get my earnings. I have Social Security System(SSS) id and Tax Identification Number(TIN) card but they said that my TIN card is not a valid government issued ID card. Ok, let me enumerate some of Western Union's so called valid government issued card.
Philippine Regulation Commission(PRC) card - not all people take PRC board exams
Government Service Insurance System(GSIS) card - hey not all people are government employees
Land Transportation Office (LTO) Driver's License - not all people know how to drive
Passport - is passport an identification card??? not all people wants to go abroad
I still believe and campaigning that our TIN card to be considered as a valid government issued ID because it is one of the many proofs that you pay your taxes(?).
