MANILA, Philippines — The Social Security System (SSS) said it will expedite the benefit-claiming process for the bereaved families of the three overseas Filipino workers (OFWs) who died in the Dubai flood.

In a statement on Friday, the agency said that its personnel in the Pampanga, Tuguegarao, and Cebu branches have also reached out to the families of OFWs Jenny Gamboa, Marjorie Saquing-Ancheta, and Dante Casipong to assist them in filing funeral and death benefit claims.

They were assisted by the Department of Migrant Workers, the SSS said.


“We sympathize with the bereaved families of our kababayans who presumably have drowned after their vehicles got submerged in floodwaters in Dubai. Our branch personnel will help them process their benefit claims until they receive the SSS benefits,” SSS president and Chief Executive Officer Rolando Ledesma Macasaet said, as quoted in the statement.
