SSS extends contribution payment deadline to June
The Social Security System (SSS) has extended the payment deadline for contributions payment for employers and individual members for the period of January to June 2019.
The new payment schedule allows regular employers (ERs) and household employers (HRs) who are paying contributions monthly, can pay their obligations until the end of the following month. For example, the deadline for payment of contributions for March 2019 will be on April 30, 2019.
Further, HRs can now pay contributions on a quarterly basis. They can pay any or all of the months of a calendar quarter. The calendar quarters are January to March, April to June, July to September, and October to December. The payment deadline for HRs will be until the end of the month following the applicable calendar quarter. For example, the deadline for payment of contributions for the first quarter of the year (January to March) will be on April 30.
The contribution payment deadline for selfemployed, voluntary and non-working spouse (SE/VM/NWS) members was also revised under the new guidelines. Contribution payments from January to June 2019 can be paid until July 31, whether they are paying on a monthly, quarterly or semi-annual basis.
On the other hand, the contribution payment schedule for OFW members will remain the same. They can pay their contributions for the months of January to December of a given year within the same year while, contributions for the months of October to December of a given year can be paid until the 31st of January of the succeeding year. For example, the deadline for payment of contributions for January 2019 is until December 31, 2019 while the deadline for payment for October 2019 will be on January 31, 2020.
It was a night to remember at SM City Pampanga as crowds of millenials trooped to the said mall for a night of party and dancing. And unlike the usual rowdy music festivals, Castaway is notable for the discipline of its organizers and even the people who attend the event.
SM City Pampanga attendees reached around 40, 000 people as youngsters rushed to see and party with the top bands and musicians in the Philippines.
The evening showcased stunning performances from bands featuring Franco, Moonstar 88, Neo Colors, Rivermaya, The Dawn and This Band over the weekend at SM Amphitheatre.
The simple experiment to bring the best in contemporary music together started in 2014. Due to its obvious success and the unbelievable line up last year, there was a sudden demand to have another version of the event this year which SM City Pampanga organizers said would be a yearly thing as long as people would clamor for it.
SM City Public Relations Officer Rain Cervantes said the event aims to highlight the mall’s summer celebration with a perfect gathering of the best bands and performers that the young generation, and even the not-so-young, can easily identify with.
Some 12 other SM malls will also be hosting the festival for the rest of March and the second week of April.
