SSS launches e-alkanSSSya program in Margosatubig town

By Claro A. Lanipa

MARGOSATUBIG, Zamboanga del Sur – To extend social security protection coverage to all contractual and job order employees of the Margosatubig Regional Hospital, the Social Security System (SSS) has launched here yesterday, March 26, the e-alkanSSSya program.

“All contractual and job order employees of the said hospital who are excluded from the mandatory coverage of the Government Service Insurance System (GSIS) are expected to avail themselves of the program,” said James Buckly, branch head, SSS-Pagadian City.

To ensure sustainability of the coverage, SSS represented by its Assistant Vice President for Western Mindanao Atty. Rodrigo Filoteo and James Buckly have inked a Memorandum of Agreement (MOA) with the hospital management represented by the chief of hospital Dr. Richard Sison, who agreed to support the program.

The e-alkanSSSya scheme employs automatic deduction of the personnel’s contribution to the SSS from their salaries. The hospital management will facilitate the collection through payroll deduction and remittance of the monthly contribution to SSS.

The minimum monthly contribution under the program is P330 or based on the actual monthly income compensation that the employees receive, but not exceeding the maximum salary credit under the contribution of its members, Buckly said.

In the same occasion, a ceremonial turnover of alkanSSSya key from SSS officials to the hospital management was held with Mayor Roy Encallado.
