“As your President, I assure you that I commit myself to every initiative that will improve the efficiency and productivity of the SSS and thereby improve the welfare of our people,” Marcos said.

President Marcos has emphasized the value of the Social Security System in the wake of the COVID-19 outbreak, saying that it is satisfying to watch the SSS’s good effect on the community and its members’ quality of life continue to rise.

Marcos thinks it’s in the country’s best interest to have a more robust and secure SSS in the long run.

He went on to say that the SSS has much to be proud of on its 65th anniversary because of its initiatives such as the Contribution Subsidy Provider Program, the flexible payment scheme for fishermen and farmers, the Contribution Penalty Condonation Program, and the Consolidated Loan Program, as the organization’s efforts continue to be very beneficial to the Filipino people.

“The job that you are doing is exactly the job that we had asked you to do – to provide the safety nets, to provide the guarantees for our people, when tragedy strikes, when crisis strikes, and when people are just going about their daily business,” Marcos added.
