SSS holds RACE campaign in Pampanga

SAN FERNANDO, Pampanga –The Social Security System (SSS) visited seven delinquent employers during the Run After Contributions Evaders (RACE) campaign last August 17.

SSS RACE Team headed by Luzon Central 2 Division Vice President Gloria Corazon M. Andrada together with legal and branch officials served the written orders to seven delinquent employers for failure to remit Social Security (SS) and Employees Compensation (EC) Contributions of their employees.

“Today, we visited establishments from various industries. We concentrated our campaign in commercial areas to send a signal to the public that SSS is serious in exerting the mandatory compliance of employer’s legal obligations and protecting the employed members’ right to social security,” Andrada explained.

Employers who were subjected to the RACE activity were required to comply within 15 days with the option to avail the Pandemic Relief and Restructuring Program (PRRP 3) or Enhanced Installment Payment Program which provides flexible payment terms ranging from nine to 60 months, depending on the total amount of delinquency. This program will run until November 21, 2022.

“From this RACE activity alone, a collection of P3 million will benefit 144 employees. As of today, 20 employers have already complied from previous operations with P5.36 million collection recorded. Others are now coordinating with us to complete their PRRP 3 requirements and reconcile their records with SSS.” Andrada added.

Employed members were also advised to constantly monitor their SSS contributions and loan remittances in their My.SSS account to ensure that their employers are remitting the correct contributions on a regular basis.

SSS reminded its members to refrain from transacting with online fixers as this may compromise their personal records and expose them to fraudulent transactions. Instead, they may visit E-centers located in SSS branches where they can transact online.
