The state-run Social Security System said on Friday that its through-the-bank pensioners who availed of the advance 18 months pension will receive their 13th month pension starting Dec. 10, 2019.
SSS president and chief executive officer Aurora C. Ignacio said the releases are part of the P12.71-billion 13th month pension disbursements to over 2.83-million SSS pensioners this year.
“As of Dec. 5, 45 of our 62 partner banks have already credited the 13th month pension to the bank accounts of our regular pensioners wherein the earliest recorded was on Nov. 18,” Ignacio said.
“Today, we are expecting the remaining 17 banks to credit the said benefit,” she added.
Meanwhile, the 13th month pensions of more than 14,000 pensioners paid thru-checks were already released to the postal office last November 26, 2019.
The SSS has also sent a letter to the Postmaster General to expedite the delivery of the said pension.
