The Government Service Insurance System or GSIS is the government body in the Philippines which provides and administer the insurance benefits of the government employees.
My mother was an government employee-retiree. She retired after almost 40 years in service last 2007. However, up until now, she still has not received her retirement benefits nor any social security disability entitlements.
I saw in the news a while ago that the local municipality where she used to work is being investigated for anomalies regarding the GSIS contributions of the staff. It was about the Caloocan City Mayor Recom Echeverri's failure to remit more than 37 million pesos worth of employees' contributions.
I hope this gets resolved fast because my mom needs her money and so are the others who rendered their service for many years. They deserve to be paid for all their labor.
