SSS conducts Employers’ Forum, ‘RACE’ in Iloilo

ILOILO CITY, May 7 (PIA) --- Over 200 participants, including registered employers in the city and province of Iloilo, took part in the Employers’ Forum conducted by state-run Social Security System (SSS) in Iloilo City held on May 6 at Bureau of Customs-Aduana Building.

The activity, which was graced by the new SSS President and Chief Executive Officer Aurora C. Ignacio, aimed to further inform the public on the importance of being a member of SSS, and refresh members the benefits they can avail.

“We aim to raise awareness among the business community that if we have or putting up businesses whether small or big, that we are mandated to register our employees to pay contributions for them in order to reap the benefits that SSS will allow – from maternity, death, funeral, or pension,” Ignacio said.

SSS also offered the agency’s e-mobile services at Sunburst Park on JM Basa Street.

The services available were the following: issuance of SSS number, verification and updating of records, SSS identification card, and amendments of records, among others.

Meanwhile, the agency also conducted its “Run After Contribution Evaders” (RACE) activity by visiting delinquent employers here in Iloilo.

Led by Ignacio, the RACE Team visited 11 establishments in Iloilo City and Pavia to serve the “Show Cause Orders” to companies with non-compliant employers and remind them of their legal obligation to register their employees for SSS coverage and remit their contributions. (JBG/LTP/PIA-Iloilo)
