Nearly P2-M unremitted contributions from employers: SSS-Davao

THE SOCIAL Security System (SSS) Davao urged nine delinquent employers to settle their unremitted contributions with penalties amounting to nearly P2 million. 

In a statement, Mary Ellen Estoque, SSS- Mindanao South 1 Division vice president, said they also issued violation notices to these delinquent employers in Davao City as it intensified the SSS’ Run After Contribution Evaders (RACE) campaign.

“We want to ensure that every employee receives the SSS benefits intended for them in times of life’s contingencies. It is the primary reason why we are regularly engaging employers to continuously remind them of their obligations under the Social Security Law,” Estoque said.

Estoque said this will allow the 425 employees to avail of their SSS benefits.

She emphasized that these employers have 15 days to coordinate with SSS Davao and settle their contribution delinquencies. 

“If they fail to comply within the said period, they will face legal consequences such as imprisonment ranging from six years and one day to 12 years, and a fine between P5,000 and P20,000,” she said.

Estoque also urged all employed members to regularly check their contribution and loan records through their My.SSS account.

“If your employers fail to act on any reported payment gaps, please do not hesitate to visit our branch offices and file a formal complaint against them,” she added.

Meanwhile, Estoque reported that from January to March 2024, SSS Mindanao South 1 Division collected P2.3 million in unremitted contributions from 65 employers.
