SSS-Bicol: P10.5 milyon na kontribusyon ng miyembro, hindi pa nakokolekta bunsod ng pandemya

Patuloy ang Social Security System (SSS) sa paghikayat sa mga employer na siguruhin updated ang kontribusyon ng kanilang mga empleyado.

Umabot sa P10.5 milyon na halaga ng hindi nabayarang kontribusyon sa nakalipas na dalawang taon mula sa 168 na employer ang na-kolekta ng Social Security System (SSS) sa Bicol Region.

Bahagi ito ng Relief Afforded to Challenged Employers (RACE) campaign ng SSS para makatulong sa mga employer na lubos na tinamaan ng pandemya, ayon sa ahensya.

“Among the 168 employers, 33 have fully paid their obligations, 64 availed of the partial or installment option, 53 were for re-assessment, six (were) referred to the legal department, six (were) filed with court cases, and six (were) issued with demand letters,” aayon kay SSS-Luzon vice president for Bicol Elenita Samblero sa isang panayam.

May 2,027 na empleyado ang miyembro ng SSS sa anim na probinsya ng rehiyon.

“From the seven delinquent employers, five had non-registration and two were non-remittance. The main objective of RACE is to instill awareness. So, regardless of how small or big, the purpose is to offer them programs that will make it easier for them to pay,” paliwanag ni Samblero.

Sa pagtaya ng SSS, makakakolekta ang ahensya ng P234,000 mula sa mga estalisyemento.

SSS expects to collect PHP234,000 in unpaid contributions from these establishments.

“We want to inform our employers and employees that we are serious about what we are doing. We don’t have the intention to shame our employers. Instead, we want to invite them to various SSS programs,” dagdag pa ng opisyal. “Before we visit an establishment subject for RACE, we issue a billing letter indicating their obligation.”
