The Social Security System (SSS) recently urged informal sector workers in a community in San Jose Del Monte, Bulacan, to become self-employed members of the SSS.

The SSS promoted the value of social security coverage to the residents of Villa Española in the said city, a community that consists primarily of informal sector self-employed workers, after receiving a request from Villa Española Homeowners Association Inc. President Josephine Lusabia.

SSS Professional Sector Department Head Carlo C. Villacorta conducted a seminar on SSS programs for self-employed workers as well as the online and onsite services provided by SSS which was attended by more than 150 participants.


During the event, Villacorta discussed the importance of informal sector workers registering as self-employed members of SSS and paying their monthly contributions regularly. He also talked about the amount of benefits and loans that they may avail of from SSS. “Kaya para sa protekyon ng mga self-employed workers, mangyari po sana na kayo ay magparehistro sa SSS bilang self-employed members at magbayad ng karampatang kontribusyon.  Kung sakali na kayo ay maaksidente o di kaya’y magkasakit at ito ay work related, mayroon kayong karagdagang benepisyo na maaaring makuha mula sa Employees’ Compensation (EC) Program,” he added. Moreover, Villacorta explained the importance of learning how to navigate the My.SSS Portal for a more convenient way of transacting with SSS. “Humihingi kami sa inyo ng kaunting puhunan sa oras, tiyaga, at pasensya upang unawain kung paano gamitin ang mga online platforms ng SSS para sa pinakamadaling pakikipagtransakyon sa SSS,” he continued.

He concluded the activity by urging members and officers of the homeowners association to share with their friends and relatives what they have learned about the programs offered by SSS to self-employed individuals.
