GSIS Benefits

MANILA, Philippines - Caloocan City hall employees may now avail again the benefits given by the Government Service Insurance System (GSIS), a city hall official said Tuesday.

Mayor Enrico ''Recom'' Echiverri said the employees can now look forward to better days because they can once again avail of the GSIS benefits, something that the past administrations have failed to accomplish even though they haven't been remiss in paying their monthly contributions.''

Echiverri cited that it is only during his term that the city government was able to remit the monthly contributions of the city hall employees, unlike in the past administration which, according to him failed, thus burying the city government in debt from the GSIS.

It will be recalled that as he assumed the position as city mayor in 2004, Echiverri had coordinated with the GSIS management to strengthen out the records of the city hall employees.

Before long, a memorandum of agreement (MoA) was reached between the two parties that resolved the problem.
