Pampanga employers in hot water

CITY OF SAN FERNANDO, Pampanga — The Social Security System is hot on the tails of six alleged delinquent employers in the province for its alleged failure to pay at least P2.9 million on principal and penalties.

Officials from the SSS said that it is now intensifying its Run After Contribution Evaders campaign and revealed that the employers include a gasoline station, an accounting firm, a convenience store, a fast food chain, and two restaurants.

SSS Pampanga Branch head Albina Leah Manahan disclosed that they have a total balance of P2,960,432 on principal payment and penalties.

“We are doing this activity to let the employers know that SSS is seriously running after contribution evaders. Our collection of delinquencies is for the employees who will be affected if their employer is not paying their contributions,” Manahan said.

Pampanga has about 8,043 active registered employers with about 55,662 employees — of whom 2,300 are regularly paying while 5,700 are intermittently paying and delinquents.

For the delinquents, the SSS has already issued about 3,000 billing letters, and about 700 with demand letters, while 252 are already in the SSS legal team.
