On February 20, 2017, DOLE-NCR Regional Director Johnson G. Gañete and officials from the Social Security System, namely Vice President Nelson P. Ibarra of the NCR East-West Division, Ms. Elizabeth Marcelo, Head of Manila Branch, and Mr. Jefferson Cruz met at the Regional Director’s Office to discuss how to address an employer’s infraction on non-coverage and non-remittance of premium contributions.
During said meeting, it was agreed upon that issues relative to non-coverage and non-remittance of premium contributions will be referred directly to SVP Jose B. Bautista of the SSS NCR Operations Group at 7/F SSS Building, East Avenue, Quezon City. The centralization of DOLE-NCR referrals will enable the SSS to provide the necessary actions on said concerns, resulting to a more efficient monitoring and referrals management. This will ensure the speedy response and resolutions of concerns.
Further, it was affirmed that the DOLE-NCR and SSS will continuously uphold their commitment to this partnership in giving utmost priority to the welfare of the Filipino workers. END/DIANA JOYZ G. ESGUERRA
