The Social Security System (SSS) led by New Panaderos Branch, on Monday, signed a memorandum of agreement with the City Government of Mandaluyong which ensures the social security coverage and protection of its over 2,700 job order and contract of service workers.

Under the agreement, the said workers will be registered as self-employed members wherein their monthly SS contributions will be deducted from their salaries through the KaltaSSS-Collect Program and remitted to the SSS by the Mandaluyong City Government.

They may now enjoy social security benefits such as sickness, maternity, disability, unemployment, retirement, funeral, and death as well as loan privileges that include member loans such as salary, educational assistance, and housing loans.
