GSIS releases April pension payments ahead of schedule


Government Service Insurance System (GSIS) announced the release of its pension payments of old-age, disability, and survivorship pensioners by Saturday, April 06, ahead of schedule.

The GSIS regularly releases social security payments every eighth of the month. The country has two upcoming regular holidays, namely, Araw ng Kagitingan (Day of Valor) on April 9 and Eid’l Fitr (Feast of Ramadhan) on April 10 per Malacañang Proclamation No. 514.

“We are prioritizing the release of the pension payments this April as we join the nation in the observance of Araw ng Kagitingan (April 09) and celebrate the advent of Eid al-Fitr (April 10),” GSIS President and General Manager Wick Veloso said.

Almost P8 billion has been allotted for the monthly pension of more than 580,000 GSIS old-age, pensioners nationwide.

GSIS electronically credits the pension through the unified multipurpose identification (UMID) card or electronic card (eCard) issued by the Land Bank of the Philippines or the UnionBank of the Philippines. Pensioners may withdraw the cash from the nearest automated teller (ATM) machine.

During the holidays, GSIS pensioners and members are advised to use the GSIS Touch Mobile app to transact online with the pension fund. Members and pensioners may access the app to apply for loans and claims and check their GSIS records anytime, anywhere.  Pensioners may also use the app to comply with their Annual Pensioners’ Information Revalidation (APIR). GSIS Touch may be downloaded using a smartphone with Internet.
