The Social Security System (SSS), through its Branch and Service Offices in Western Mindanao, conducted SSS orientations to 116 job order (JO) and contractual workers of the Technical Education and Skills Development Authority (TESDA) Region IX on May 10, 2023.
The orientation was simultaneously held nationwide at different TESDA Regional and Provincial Offices in preparation for the JO workers’ SSS coverage under the KaSSSangga Collect Program once a Memorandum of Agreement (MOA) has been signed.
Through the KaSSSangga Collect Program, JO workers who are not covered by the Government Service Insurance System (GSIS) will be ensured of their active SSS membership, which will entitle them to various social security benefits such as sickness, maternity, disability, retirement, death, and funeral, including short-term loan privileges like salary and calamity loan. They may also receive Employees’ Compensation (EC) benefits for work-related contingencies.
