SSS Zambo, DOLE 9-RCC sign MOA under KaSSSangga Collect Program


Social Security System (SSS) Zamboanga Branch recently signed a Memorandum of Agreement (MOA) with the member agencies of the Department of Labor and Employment 9 – Regional Coordinating Committee (DOLE 9-RCC) for the social security coverage and protection of their Job Order (JO) workers.

Through the KaSSSangga Collect Program, 70 JO workers under the DOLE-attached agencies will be registered as SSS self-employed members since they are not covered by the Government Service Insurance System (GSIS).  Through an automatic salary deduction scheme, JO workers’ monthly contributions will be remitted properly, thus making themselves qualified to benefits and privileges under the Social Security (SS) and Employees’ Compensation (EC) Programs.

Participating member agencies under DOLE 9-RCC are National Labor Relations Commission (NLRC), National Conciliation Mediation Board (NCMB), Regional Tripartite Wages and Productivity Board (RTWPB), Technical Education and Skills Development Authority (TESDA), Professional Regulation Commission (PRC), Occupational Safety and Health Center (OSHC), and Employees’ Compensation Commission (ECC).
