Members of the Filipino community in Madrid gathered yesterday for a briefing on Social Security System coverage programs conducted by SSS Representative Jonnah Cruzada. The briefing was held at the Philippine Overseas Labor Office Hall.
Ms. Cruzada discussed, among others, members’ benefits, reactivation of records and amendment of member data and the SSS Flexi-Fund and loan restructuring programs. Ms. Cruzada also addressed queries from the audience and provided on-site services for the participants, most of whom were SSS members.
The participants benefited from Ms. Cruzada’s comprehensive discussion and requested for the provision of SSS onsite services in Madrid on a more regular basis.
First Secretary and Consul Mary Luck Hicarte, in her remarks, encouraged the participants to spread the word about SSS to their relatives and friends, underscoring that, through SSS, the Philippine government is able to provide protection to Filipino workers against disability, sickness, old age, death and other life events that may adversely affect their finances.
Ms. Cruzada is scheduled to conduct on-site services in SSS partner remittance companies in Madrid and Barcelona on the following dates: 4 November – BDO/CBN Madrid, 5 November – Metrobank/United Europhil Madrid, 6 November – Metrobank/United Europhil Barcelona and 7 November 2016 – BDO/CBN Barcelona.
