SSS targets youth, millenials in Sulit campaign

DAVAO CITY, July 13 (PIA)—The Social Security System is targeting  youth and millenials on their Sulit sa SSS campaign.

Sulit sa SSS is an awareness campaign that seeks to inform the public on the importance of social security particularly the benefits which will greatly help the members.

Among the activities is a school tour at the University of Southeastern Philippines (USEP) campus which will be attended by high school, senior high school and college students. The talk is aimed at promoting SSS to its future members.

“The intention of the school tour is to encourage the soon-to- be members that at the earliest stage they should enroll and contribute, the longer they stay, the bigger the benefit they will be getting.” SSS account officer Neil Grumo said during the Kapihan sa PIA media forum.

Grumo said the campaign is also targeted among the millenials, many of whom are freelancers particularly in the ICT (information communications technology) industry.

He noted these millenials would rather invest on gadgets like the latest smartphones and tablets than allocating a portion of their compensation as SSS contributions.

“SSS is savings and also an insurance, it is not an expense.” SSS assistant branch head Siarina Piatos describes the misconceptions of some who think that SSS contributions are expenses.

Among the activities during the Sulit sa SSS campaign in Davao City which will be held this July 16 to 17 will include a RACE (Run After Contribution Evaders) where the SSS team will visit erring companies, a campus tour, SSS President’s Day and the SSS Sulit Conference which will involve different sectors.
