social security is protected. We need the support of the police force as we strongly administer our nationwide campaign to increase contribution collection and promote compliance to the Social Security Law by filing charges and serving warrants to these employers who run away from their obligations to SSS and their employees,” Dooc added.
This is not the first time that SSS and PNP are working close together as the pension fund and PNP have ongoing partnerships under the programs Operation Tokhang and Run After Contribution Evaders, where they serve warrants against erring employers and post show cause orders in non-compliant establishments, respectively.
“As of November 6, there were already 102 employers subjected to RACE conducted in 10 regional areas, namely, Lipa City, Dagupan City, El Nido, Palawan, Davao City, General Santos City, Bacolod City, Pagadian City, Laoag City, Naga City and Butuan City. This has been part of our regional campaign as part of our aggressive efforts in collection contribution, promoting compliance and ensuring higher coverage of employees,” Dooc said.
The event also highlighted the turn-over of 762 directional signages to PNP from SSS. A Memorandum of Understanding was signed last year between
the two agencies that led to the implementation of Standardized Police Directional Signages that aims to promote a safe, secured, orderly and peaceful community.
Based on the MOU, the SSS is in-charge of the production of the uniform signages while the PNP will do the installation in coordination with local government units nationwide.
Last December 12, 2017, the PNP and SSS initially installed signages in selected places in Quezon City and San Juan.
