SSS marks Labor Day with nationwide operation vs contribution evaders

CONCEPCION, Tarlac (April 30, 2024) — The Social Security System (SSS) simultaneously launched its RACE campaign nationwide to issue written orders to delinquent employers today.

“The Run After Contribution Evaders (RACE) is our contribution to Filipino Workers as part of the Labor Day celebration,” Vice President Vilma Agapito of the SSS Luzon Central 1 Division said.

Ten companies in this town were visited by the team of Agapito for non-remittance of SSS contributions.

According to Agapito, the delinquency of the 10 companies amounts to a total of almost P3.3 million.

The simultaneous nationwide event is dubbed “Alay ng SSS para sa mga Manggagawa – Serbisyong Mapagkakatiwalaan at Proteksyong Maaasahan.”

SSS Tarlac Branch Head Maria Maxima Macaraeg said that the SSS will push for the social security protection of Filipino workers nationwide by calling on business establishments to religiously remit their workers’ contributions.

“The SSS is issuing violation notices to the delinquent employers across the country in a synchronous RACE operation to remind them of the legal consequences of not remitting their employees’ contributions, Macaraeg said.

According to the SSS, its President and Chief Executive Officer Rolly Macasaet always prioritizes the welfare of Filipino workers by ensuring that they can avail of the various social security protection benefits provided by the state pension fund.

One of these measures is to see to it that employers are up-to-date in remitting premium contributions collected from workers.

SSS members are entitled to social security benefits such as sickness, maternity, disability, unemployment, retirement, funeral, and death benefits.
