As part of the program, SSS officials also provided brief discussions about its various benefit programs and digitalization efforts, including some of the initiatives that the pension fund implements for the welfare of its stakeholders amid calamities such as this pandemic, and its role in the national government’s Small Business Wage Subsidy (SBWS) Program.
