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