Claiming our Government Benefits
It is really important, as an overseas Pinoy worker, to understand our benefits and membership programs offered by our government as it’s part of our right. Whether it be SSS, OWWA, Pag-IBIG, etc. We should learn and know about these government claims in order also take advantage of possible loans and other privileges. We’re paying for them, remember?

Reminder to always Send Your SSS Contributions
We would like to remind everyone to please always do not forget to keep contributing to your SSS every month (or before the deadline). After all, saving money should be integrated into our mindset at an early age.
We should avoid spending too much on unnecessary items and do not just think of living for the moment (#YOLO mindset) because we should also think about our future. We are not always going to be young and able, and while we are capable of earning money, let’s all invest our money and put them to good use.
Having an SSS Pension plan is really helpful for us when we retire. It’s good that we are getting something every month so we can also feel good that we’re still able to contribute something to society and not become a fully dependent to our family, or to other people when we retire.
