SSS inks partnership with Bulacan-based cooperative for expansion of SSS services

SAN RAFAEL, Bulacan–The Social Security System (SSS) and Sacred Heart Credit and Development Cooperative (SHCDC) can now work together for the expansion of SSS services after signing a Memorandum of Agreement (MOA) under the SSS Accreditation Program for Cooperatives and Organized Groups last September 10.  
SSS Vice President for Luzon Central 2 Division Gloria Corazon M. Andrada said that after qualifying and passing the requirements of a servicing Partner Agent (PA), SHCDC can now provide SSS services to its regular and associate members who are also registered or potential members of the SSS.
“During this time of pandemic, SSS is continuously seeking faster, simpler, and safer ways to deliver its services especially to workers in the informal and marginalized sectors.  That is why we are forming strong partnerships with the local cooperatives and microfinance institutions such as SHCDC,” Andrada said.
The 52-year old SHCDC with over 2,000 members as of January 2020 is the 37th accredited PA in Luzon area. Under the MOA, the newly-accredited servicing PA shall screen and receive membership forms, member loan application forms, funeral claim application forms, and other supporting documents. Further, SHCDC is also authorized to issue a Certificate of Fact of Death for the funeral claim application submitted to them.
“We would like to commend SHCDC under the leadership of General Manager Erwin M. Veneracion and the Board of Directors for expanding their membership and contribution base by promoting SSS services to their members,” said Andrada.
Interested cooperatives and microfinance institutions may coordinate with the nearest SSS branch for the accreditation requirements and process. Contact details are available in the SSS website, www.sss.gov.ph.
