SSS urges 54 erring employers in Bicol to settle over P2-M delinquencies

LEGAZPI CITY, Albay --- The Social Security System (SSS) said it aimed to collect more than P2 million worth of unpaid contributions and penalties after issuing violation notices to 54 erring employers during the Run After Contribution Evaders (RACE) Campaign in the six provinces under the Bicol Region.


In a press briefing, Vice President for Luzon Bicol Division Elenita S. Samblero said that 27 of the 54 employers failed to remit the SSS contributions of its 158 employees worth P2.15 million.


Samblero said SSS also served written notices to another 27 employers for their failure to register their business and report their workers to the SSS.


“Once these employers have already registered their business and provided the necessary employment records to SSS, we can collect an additional contribution delinquency of around P814,730,” Samblero said.


She said that if employers failed to remit employees’ SSS contributions or do not report their workers to the SSS, their workers will miss the opportunity to enjoy the SSS benefits intended for them.


Meanwhile, Samblero urged employed SSS members to be vigilant by regularly monitoring their contribution records through their My.SSS account to verify if their Social Security (SS) and Employees’ Compensation (EC) contributions are remitted on time.


“If members discovered discrepancies in their contribution records, do not hesitate to ask their company representatives why their SSS contributions are not updated. Should their employers failed to act on it, we advised them to file a non-remittance complaint to the nearest SSS branch,” Samblero said.


A week after the conduct of the regional RACE Operations, Samblero concluded that five employers immediately settled their contribution delinquencies worth P143,299.44.
