26 Jul: DOLE Requests Brief Exemption of SSS Payment for First-Time OFWs

The Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE) is proposing a temporary exemption of Overseas Filipino Workers (OFW) to immediately pay for their social security premiums before they can secure an Overseas Employment Certificate (OEC). Instead, Labor Secretary Silvestre Bello III suggests that SSS must collect the overseas worker’s premiums three months after their deployment.
