SSS on 1,000 Pesos Pension Hike to members

SSS President and chief Executive Officer Emmanuel Dooc statement:
“The P1, 000 benefit increase will be received by our pensioners in three distinct payments at three different dates for the months of January, February and March,” Dooc said during the Social Security Commission Board meeting.
Here’s the statement from Social Security Commission (SSC) Chairman Amado Valdez:
“We would like to thank the Office of President Duterte for the support on this issue. To our pensioners and members, thank you for your patience and this is just the first good news that will come from me. There are more to come,” Valdez said.
“This is a concerted effort. The administration really wanted to improve the level of living of the Filipino people. Those who have less in financial aspect will have more in this pension hike. We have a new inspiration to work for more after this success,” he added.

Glad to hear this good news, hopefully they will not increase the monthly contributions of their current active members.
