SSS intensifies campaign against delinquent employers in Angeles City 


ANGELES City – The Social Security System (SSS) beefed up its campaign against delinquent employers through the conduct of Run After Contributions Evaders (RACE) campaign last August 23, 2023. 

The SSS RACE team visited eight employers with outstanding contribution delinquencies. These employers received written notices instructing them to coordinate with their assigned account officers and settle their delinquencies within the non-extendible 15-day period. 

“While conducting this operation, we noticed that many businesses were struggling to make timely contribution payments due to financial constraints. Acknowledging these difficulties, we want to instill in the employers that they are accountable for their legal obligations while providing them with the necessary support to settle their delinquencies,” said SSS Vice President of the Luzon Central 2 Division Gloria Corazon M. Andrada. 

Employers who were visited during the operation can apply for the Contribution Penalty Condonation, Delinquency Management, and Restructuring Program (CPCoDe MRP) to settle their delinquency in full or installment ranging from 12 to 48 months depending on the amount. 

Andrada added that the employers have expressed their gratitude for the assistance programs offered by the SSS and have pledged to settle their delinquencies within the given period. 

The successful conduct of RACE campaign in Angeles City marks the second operation conducted by the SSS Angeles Branch in 2023 with target collection of P6.25 million benefiting 77 employees. 

Andrada also announced the launch of the Calamity Assistance Program for SSS members and pensioners affected by the southwest monsoon and Typhoon Egay. 

“In order to become eligible for the calamity loan, members should have at least 36 monthly contributions, six of which should be posted within the last 12 months prior to the month of application. Therefore, ensuring regular and timely remittance of contributions is crucial for employees to qualify for benefits and loan privileges,” Andrada concluded. 

Aside from the calamity loan, Social Security (SS) and Employees’ Compensation (EC) pensioners residing in NDRRMC-declared calamity areas can avail of the three-month advance pension under the SSS Calamity Assistance Program.
