Se­lected SSS branches in CL open on Satur­days for au­to­mated tel­ler­ing ser­vice

Sun.Star Pampanga - - HEALTH! - Erika_gines@icloud .com

In line with the im­ple­men­ta­tion of the Re­al­Time Post­ing of Con­tri­bu­tions (RTPC) sys­tem, sev­eral Cen­tral Lu­zon branches among the 51 branches of the So­cial Se­cu­rity Sys­tem (SSS) na­tion­wide are open on all Satur­days of Fe­bru­ary, to as­sist em­ploy­ers and mem­bers in pay­ing their con­tri­bu­tions thru the Au­to­mated Tel­ler­ing Sys­tem (ATS) fa­cil­ity.

SSS Pres­i­dent and Chief Ex­ec­u­tive Of­fi­cer Em­manuel Dooc said that aside from Satur­day op­er­a­tions, SSS branches also ex­tended their daily op­er­a­tion for two hours, from 5pm to 7pm, for the whole month of Fe­bru­ary to ac­cept con­tri­bu­tion pay­ments.

“Since the RTPC sys­tem is new and some mem­bers and em­ploy­ers are not yet ac­cus­tomed to it, we are ex­tend­ing our ATS fa­cil­ity to ac­cept con­tri­bu­tion pay­ments and at the same time, pro­vide as­sis­tance in us­ing the RTPC sys­tem,” said Dooc.

In Cen­tral Lu­zon, Ca­banat­uan City, Bal­i­uag, Malolos, Mey­cauayan, Olon­gapo, and Pam­panga are open on all Satur­days of Fe­bru­ary and have an ex­tended two-hour op­er­a­tion daily.

“This early, we would like to thank our ded­i­cated em­ploy­ees who will forego their rest day on Satur­days and will ex­tend ad­di­tional hours work­ing ev­ery­day to ac­cept pay­ments and as­sist our mem­bers with the RTPC sys­tem,” said Dooc.

“With th­ese ex­tended of­fice hours, we hope mem­bers and em­ploy­ers will be able to pay their SSS con­tri­bu­tions on time. This will also give them ex­tended pe­riod to reg­is­ter with My.SSS and cre­ate their on­line ac­count,” he added.

Dooc re­minds mem­bers and em­ploy­ers that be­fore they can pay thru the ATS fa­cil­ity, they must have their Pay­ment Ref­er­ence Num­ber (PRN) which they can gen­er­ate via their on­line ac­count. How­ever, if they do not have an on­line ac­count yet, they can get their PRN from the Mem­ber Ser­vice Rep­re­sen­ta­tives (MSR) of the SSS branch.

Dooc said that SSS hopes that all its mem­bers and em­ploy­ers will have an on­line ac­count by end of Fe­bru­ary. He said that SSS al­ready des­ig­nated em­ploy­ees for each branch to as­sist mem­bers and em­ploy­ers with the regis­tra­tion with My.SSS.

Mem­bers are also en­cour­aged to up­date their mo­bile num­bers with SSS by vis­it­ing the near­est branch or thru their on­line ac­count. With the up­dated mo­bile num­ber, mem­bers will re­ceive their PRN via text which they can show everytime they pay their con­tri­bu­tions thru the ATS fa­cil­ity or any of the ac­cred­ited col­lec­tion part­ners of SSS.
