With the easing of community quarantine restrictions in most parts of the country, Filipinos now have more leeway in settling their financial obligations and keeping up with payment deadlines for bills as well as government contributions.
Following the Social Security System (SSS) announcement that the deadline for contribution payment has been extended to June 30, 2020, members are also urged to use accredited payment channels to avoid overcrowding in SSS offices and better ensure the safety of everyone.
"Although community quarantine restrictions are gradually lifted, the risk of exposure to COVID-19 is still there. It would be beneficial for our members to consider paying their SSS contributions through the most convenient and safe option for them. Aside from SSS branches, we also have accredited bank and non-bank collecting partners that offer over-the-counter and online payment channels," SSS President and CEO Aurora C. Ignacio said.
Sharing the commitment of SSS to assist members during this time of health crisis, Bayad Center continues to strengthen its on-site and online capacity to serve the payment needs of Filipinos, emphasizing accessibility, convenience, and safety.
