SSS President and Chief Executive Officer Emmanuel F. Dooc said that the extended services of Bayad Center can provide easier and more convenient payment channels for SSS employers. “Transacting employers are no longer required to fill-out any forms since the contribution statement can be presented upon payment of employees and employer contributions to selected Bayad Center branches,” Dooc said.

SSS members fear loss of property

Members of the Social Security System (SSS) expressed their indignation on the possible loss of the 7.5-ha property of the state-run pension fund in Pasay City following an unexpected court order for SSS to vacate the area.  During the celebration of the nationwide Pensioners’ Day on Friday, the Federation of Senior Citizens Associations of the Philippines (FESCAP) reacted strongly in opposition to the move of the National Grid Corporation of the Philippines (NGCP) to sequester a part of the SSS property in Pasay City.  Of the total property area, NGCP eyed the 6.08-ha part of the land for the construction of their Pasay 230kV Substation Project allegedly aimed at improving its power quality and system reliability. “There are technicalities in that issue, however, for the benefit of the elders, there should be a consideration that the land should remain a property of SSS. It is only fair that SSS pursues its plan in developing the area because it will provide a lifetime of assistance to its pensioners and members,” said FESCAP President Jorge Banal during a meeting with Social Security Commission (SSC) Chairman Amado D. Valdez.  The disputed SSS property located at the Financial Center Area along Diokno Ave. in Pasay City is earmarked for the construction of the SSS Corporate Center of the South, adjacent to the office of the Government Service Insurance System (GSIS) that houses the...
