THE SOCIAL Security System’s (SSS) Davao Region office has called on delinquent employers to settle accounts or face charges. “These are employers who are not compliant… and they are not that concerned (that their remittances are delayed),” Office-in-charge Southern 1 Department head Rizalito Alberto C. De Leon told media during the Kapihan sa Davao. He cited that as of June 28, there were 3,283 delinquent employers in the region. Mr. De Leon said these employers have been notified through an electronic statement of account and some have been visited by SSS account officers. SSS Communications Officer Greta Queyle said 78 cases for non-remittance have been filed before the prosecutors office as of June 30. Ms. Queyle noted that convicted employers face a fine of up to P20,000 imprisonment of one day to 12 years. “This will send a strong message to the delinquent employers that SSS is here. It is true to its mandate that our premiums should be paid,” she said, adding that employees are the ones who suffer the consequences of having delinquent employers. — Maya M. Padillo
