DSWD Eastern Visayas announces process & requirements for AICS educational assistance

Applying for AICS Educational Assistance in DSWD offices and suboffices now requires an appointment, and applicants must bring the required documents in order for the DSWD to process their application.

TACLOBAN CITY – According to a Facebook post by DSWD Eastern Visayas, beginning August 27, 2022, only those with an appointment from DSWD FO8 and a priority number from DSWD SubField Offices will be processed by the office. There will be no walk-in clients processed.

Those who received an appointment text message from DSWD FO8, as well as those with priority numbers at DSWD SubField Offices, are reminded to bring the following documents COMPLETELY:

  1. Certificate of Enrolment/Registration/School ID/Account Statement [one (1) original and one (1) photocopy];
  2. Original and two (2) photocopies of the parent's or guardian's valid ID (if the beneficiary is a minor) OR Original and two (2) photocopies of the student applicant's valid ID if he is of legal age.

The ID that is to be submitted must be VALID, which means:
  • it has not expired. On the day of application for Educational Assistance, the ID must still be valid. If a school ID, it should be for the school year 2022-2023; 
  • it should not be fake; it should have a signature, except for a Philsys ID; and
  • it would be nice if it had a picture.

Also, bring only the appointment text message from DSWD FO8 and not any other number.
