President Rodrigo Duterte signed the appointment paper of Bersamin as a member of the GSIS Board of Trustees on February 6, 2020, but was only made public on Friday.

The former chief magistrate was then elected by the GSIS board as its chairman, replacing GSIS officer-in-charge Ronald Macasaet.

Bersamin retired as Chief Justice last year.

He spent a total of 10 years in the Supreme Court.

Bersamin finished law at the University of the East in 1973 and placed 9th in the Bar Examinations thereafter.

Malacañang touted Bersamin’s “sterling” public service record.

“We are confident that Mr. Bersamin would serve the GSIS with the same dedication and integrity he demonstrated in his many years of government service,” Palace spokesman Salvador Panelo said in a statement.
