GSIS Pagadian intensifies home visits to old age pensioners

By Alma L. Tingcang

IPIL, Zamboanga Sibugay - To better serve its pensioners aged 90 years old and above, the Government Service Insurance System (GSIS) Pagadian branch has intensified its home visits to prevent suspension of monthly payments.

Engr. Leoncito S. Manuel, GSIS Pagadian branch manager said as an old-age pensioner, one must renew his active status yearly, on his birth month. “Home visits are done for old-age survivorship pensioners who cannot travel to the nearest GSIS office,” he explained.

Manuel said for 2015, the GSIS has identified 50 old-age pensioners scheduled for home visit. As of today, there are only 8 pensioners who have not been visited by GSIS.

According to Engr. Manuel, no less than GSIS Senior Vice-President Atty. Dionisio C. Ebdane Jr., commended GSIS Pagadian for the highest percentage of home visits done in the Visayas-Mindanao area, during the recent Managers’ Conference held in Dumaguete City last month.

In the Zamboanga Sibugay area, GSIS recently conducted home visits and delivered UMID card to 90-year old Eulalia Sajulga of Imelda, Zamboanga Sibugay; Marietta Junsay, 93 years old,  also from the town of Imelda; and Agripino M. Santos, 91 years old of Diplahan, Zamboanga Sibugay.

Aside from the home visits, GSIS personnel Marvic Joy T. Ababol and Sherwin Duran also turned-over a check amounting to P50,000 to Mayor Julius T. Acosta Sr. of Siay, this province, representing his Personal Accident Medical Reimbursement.

The GSIS Personal Accident Insurance dubbed as My Shield covers individuals aged 3 to 80 years old and offers the cheapest yet the widest accident insurance coverage in the industry today. It has a wide array of insurance products that will protect your future at the lowest premium.

My Shield offers a minimum coverage of P50,000 to a maximum protection of P5 million.

GSIS continues to strive for the improvement of its services driven by integrity, professionalism, and a culture of public service, promoting an efficient organization that is fully-automated and member-focused.
