Sun.Star Pampanga - - TOPSTORIES! -

So­cial Se­cu­rity Sys­tem (SSS) Chief Em­manuel F. Dooc sub­mit­ted his res­ig­na­tion let­ter yes­ter­day to Pres­i­dent Ro­drigo Duterte as Pres­i­dent and Chief Ex­ec­u­tive Of­fi­cer (PCEO) of the pen­sion fund at the same time Repub­lic Act 11199 or the So­cial Se­cu­rity Act of 2018 took eff ect .

In his let­ter to Pres­i­dent Duterte, Dooc “vol­un­tar­ily and ir­re­vo­ca­bly stepped down to pro­vide him the op­por­tu­nity to name a new Pres­i­dent and CEO of SSS.”

As the 17th chief of the pen­sion fund, Dooc leaves a legacy in SSS of sig­nif­i­cant ac­com­plish­ments high­lighted by the new SS law that has long-term im­pact on the vi­a­bil­ity of the pen­sion fund and crit­i­cal in pro­vid­ing more rel­e­vant ben­e­fits to its mem­bers and pen­sion­ers.

Dooc joined the pen­sion fund in Novem­ber 2016 af­ter serv­ing as In­sur­ance Com­mis­sioner in 2011 un­til his ap­point­ment in SSS. Dur­ing his stint with the In­sur­ance Com­mis­sion, Dooc also led the en­act­ment of the Re­vised In­sur­ance Code of 2012 which paved the way for the un­prece­dented growth of the in­sur­ance i ndust r y.

In SSS, with just a lit­tle over two years in his post, Dooc’s man­age­ment posted the high­est mem­bers’con­tri­bu­tion col­lec­tion in the his­tory

Card­ing par­layed it to be­come a con­sid­er­able player and made use­ful re­la­tion­ships with the Na­tional Grid Cor­po­ra­tion of the Philip­pines (NGCP) and Pelco II. He still main­tains con­nec­tions with these two firms.

RS de­los Reyes En­ter­prises with busi­ness ad­dress at Barangay Sta. Ines is a lead­ing elec­tri­cal con­tract­ing com­pany and is still gain­ing pa­tron­age and ad­her­ents as far as elec­tri­cal sup­ply and con­tract­ing are con­cerned.

Ri­cardo “RS” S. de­los Reyes was once ap­proached by men of Mayor Crisos­tomo C. Garbo to be one of the can­di­dates for coun­cilor. For a while, he de­murred and po­litely re­fused the of­fer.

Then, in or­der to defuse the “ten­sion”, he vol­un­teered Nino ‘RS’de­los Reyes, his third son, to sub for him in the Coun­cil. The rest, as they say, is po­lit­i­cal his­tory.

To­day, Nino is bent on run­ning for a coun­cil seat un­der the ban­ner of Garbo. Card­ing, mean­while, re­mains the sup­porter of his son, Nino, the strong wind be­neath his wings.
