CAGAYAN DE ORO CITY – The Social Security System (SSS) here served notices to 11 employers who failed to remit around P7.2 million worth of contributions.
In a statement Monday, SSS senior vice president for Mindanao operations group Edwin Alo said the move is part of the Run After Contribution Evaders (Race) initiative.
Alo said similar written notices are also being prepared for other delinquent companies or commercial establishments with the same problem.
"Our Race (written notices) is to let all employers be informed that there is a program they can avail of; if they intend to participate, there will be a condonation of penalties for past contribution dues," he said.
In one of the firms, the agency disclosed that 214 employees were affected due to their employer's non-remittance SSS contributions for a certain period.
Alo said employers with unpaid contributions from March 2020 can choose to avail of the Pandemic Relief and Restructuring Program (PRRP) 2 or the Condonation of Penalties on Social Security Contribution.
Under this program, qualified applicants are given a chance via one-time payment or installment term up to 24 months with condonation of penalties and the application must be submitted on or before May 19, 2022.
Other employers can also opt for the PRRP 3 or the Enhanced Installment Payment Program where an installment term is given the range from nine to 60 months depending on the employer's total amount of obligations that will run until November 22, 2022.
Ira Levin Filoteo, the SSS-Cagayan de Oro branch head, said Race is one of the ways in ensuring the employees in the private sector are "adequately protected in times of need." (PNA)
