Following the orders of the newly appointed Social Security System (SSS) President and Chief Executive Officer Michael G. Regino, the SSS conducted its Run After Contribution Evaders (RACE) Campaign against non-compliant employers in Angeles City, Pampanga on March 29, 2022.

The SSS RACE Team headed by SSS Luzon Operations Group Senior Vice President Antonio Argabioso, Accounts Management Group Senior Vice President Mario R. Sibucao, and Luzon Central 2 Division Vice President Gloria Corazon M. Andrada visited eight employers with delinquent contributions and accumulated penalties worth Php 5.5 million. The team informed the delinquent employers of their violations and encouraged them to avail of the ongoing Pandemic Relief and Restructuring Programs (PRRP).

Employers who are unable to pay their delinquencies in full and/or have no alternative means to settle immediately their total contribution obligations can avail of the Enhanced Installment Payment Program (PRRP 3) until November 21, 2022.

Meanwhile, delinquent employers who failed to pay their Social Security (SS) contributions and/or penalties covering the applicable month of March 2020 and onwards are eligible to avail the Condonation of Penalties on SS Contributions (PRRP 2) until May 19, 2022.

Vice President Gloria Corazon M. Andrada reminded all employers of their legal obligations to secure the welfare and interests of their workers under Republic Act 11199 or the Social Security Act of 2018.

“The importance of social security protection has been further highlighted during this time of pandemic when our members depend on their SSS benefits and loans to cope with the financial challenges. This is the main reason why we are conducting the RACE Campaign to assist our delinquent employers to reinstate their good standing with the SSS so that their employees can avail of the SSS benefits and privileges, subject to qualifying conditions. We are glad that all the visited employers have been receptive and appreciative of the offered programs. They have committed to comply within 15 days after our visit with them,” Andrada said.

Failure to comply with the written order shall compel the SSS to take legal action against the non-compliant employers pursuant to the provisions of the SS Law.

Meanwhile, Angeles Branch Head Normita M. Cruz encouraged the employees to regularly verify their SSS remittances. “We strongly advise our employed members to always check and monitor their records on their My.SSS account to ensure that their employers are remitting the right contributions regularly,” she said.

“Employees who find gaps in their contribution records or have incorrect contributions should get in touch with the SSS branch. The assigned account officer will assist them to enforce the proper remittance and compliance of their employers,” Cruz added.
