THE Social Security System (SSS) announced it is ready to grant a Calamity Assistance Package to the members and pensioners in areas to be declared by the National Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Council as under the state of calamity.

SSS President and Chief Executive Officer Michael Regino said that the Calamity Assistance Package will consist of the Calamity Loan Assistance Program (CLAP) and the three-month advance pension for pensioners.

This is in light of the recent, strong earthquake which struck the provinces of Abra and its surrounding areas last Wednesday.

Further details will be posted in all SSS’ social media pages via the uSSSap Tayo Portal at, on Facebook at “Philippine Social Security System – SSS,” Instagram and YouTube at “mysssph,” Twitter at “PHLSSS,” or its Viber Community at “MYSSSPH Updates.”
