The Social Security System (SSS) reminds its members and pensioners to abide by the enhanced workplace safety systems following the nationwide surge of COVID-19 cases.
SSS President and Chief Executive Officer Aurora C. Ignacio stated that despite the pandemic, members still continue to visit SSS offices to file and follow up on their claims.
“Our desire is to continuously provide the benefits and services for our members. However, in order to do so, we must observe basic health precautionary measures as mandated by the government to ensure the safety of both members and SSS employees.” Ignacio said.
In this line, SSS enjoins it stakeholders to get protected from COVID-19 by adopting these following steps:
• Getting vaccinated,
• Wearing masks in public, especially in closed, crowded areas
• Practicing social distancing,
• Frequently washing our hands,
• Limiting travel,
• Avoid crowded areas,
• Transacting online,
• Isolate if with COVID-like symptoms, and
• Monitor daily health status.
Further, SSS enjoins its members, pensioners, employers, and the general public to continue using its online services when transacting with its offices and branches for faster, simpler, more efficient, and more convenient ways to avoid face-to-face interaction.
