SSS holds employers accountable for unregistered business, unremitted contributions

Published

SAN JOSE DEL MONTE CITY, Bulacan – Social Security System (SSS) Vice President for Luzon Central 2 Division Gloria Corazon M. Andrada spearheaded the Run After Contribution Evaders (RACE) campaign to enforce employers’ compliance under Republic Act 11199 or Social Security Act of 2018.

Andrada said that show cause orders were issued to six delinquent establishments due to non-registration of business and non-remittance of contributions to the SSS.

She added that five of these employers failed to remit the Social Security (SS) and Employees Compensation (SS) contributions of 32 employees, amounting to P2.3 million, inclusive of accrued penalties. Meanwhile, one company failed to register its business and report its more than 10 employees.

“Employers are mandated by the law to report their employees through their My.SSS accounts within 30 days from the date the employees were hired, regardless of their employment status. Aside from that, business operating with even a single employee should register with the SSS and properly remit their SS and EC contributions,” Andrada explained.

She also advised that the newly hired and separated employees should be reported immediately through the My.SSS Employer Account to maintain true and accurate records.  

“Employers who received the written order will be given 15 days to explain why no legal action should be taken against them. To avoid legal actions, they are advised to visit the SSS branch to submit the supporting documents and avail of our condonation program for delinquency settlement. Otherwise, SSS will use the full force of the law to have them prosecuted,” Andrada said.

Employers who are proven guilty for violation of RA 11199 will face six to 12 years imprisonment and pay penalties ranging from P5,000 to P20,000.

“Even the Supreme Court supported the court decision in holding these erring employers accountable for violating the Social Security Law. This only shows that the judiciary is one with SSS in upholding social justice by enforcing criminal prosecution and monetary sanctions,” Andrada concluded.

It was recalled that the Supreme Court (SC) rejected an appeal filed by a real estate company, which was convicted due to failure to remit the employees’ contribution and loan amortizations.
