All Google Adsense publishers are required to enter a Personal Identification Number (PIN) in order to be eligible to receive payments from Adsense. You will receive the PIN via mail after your earnings balance has reached $50. Adsense publishers in the Philippines have reported that it usually takes around 20 days to 2 months before they receive the PIN from Adsense.
Below is a short FAQ about the Google Adsense PIN.
The PIN (Personal Identification Number) is key to verifying your Google AdSense account so that you can receive payments. Once your account balance reaches $100 — provided you have entered the PIN and removed all other holds from your account — you will be all clear to receive payments from Adsense.
PINs were issued starting January 28, 2005 — if your account was approved before this date, you do not need to enter in a PIN.

PINs are printed on PIN mailers, which are white 4.5 x 6 inch (11.4 x 15.2 cm) postcards. Below are the front and back images of the PIN mailer that Google sends to publishers.
