As part of its coverage and collection efforts, the Social Security System (SSS) led by SSS President and Chief Executive Officer Emilio S. de Quiros, Jr. recently visited Rome, Italy and other countries in Europe to encourage Overseas Filipino Workers (OFWs) in the continent to register as SSS members so that they can enjoy social security benefits upon their retirement in the Philippines.

Right photo shows President de Quiros, Jr. together with the members of the Filipino communities in Rome after a briefing conducted about OFW coverage and the SSS Flexi-fund Program.

SSS Flexi-fund Program is a voluntary provident fund program exclusive for OFWs which gives them an opportunity to save a bigger portion of their salary as a pension-savings plan to receive a bigger pension as well as become part of their investment in the future.
