SSS pensioners asked to make annual confirmation-A A +A
Monday, June 23, 2014
THE Social Security System (SSS) has reminded the pensioners to personally appear during their birthdays before the SSS office or at the pension depository banks for the annual confirmation.
SSS-Zamboanga Branch Head Elizabeth Cabatingan issued the reminder, citing they are conducting annual confirmation of pensioners to monitor who among them are still living.
Cabatingan said it is imperative to make annual confirmation “so that their monthly pensions will not be cut.”
She said the release of the monthly pensions will only be resumed after they appear at the SSS office.
Cabatingan also said they could also personally appear before the bank where they withdraw their monthly pension.
“Every birthday of the pensioner, they must go to the banks where their pensions are deposited or to the SSS,” she said.
There are 297,911 members to include pensioners who are registered with the SSS office in the city.
