SSS to hire add’l PWDs in offices
The Social Security System is planning to hire additional persons with disability in its branches and offices.
SSS President and Chief Executive Officer Rolando Macasaet said even as the SSS is compliant with the magna carta for PWDs, it continues to look for other ways to encourage the active participation of PWDs in the society.
“As one of the country’s primary providers of meaningful social security protection to Filipino workers, we can attest to the importance of having gainful work during your younger years not only to make ends meet but also to secure your future,” Macasaet said. “Having this in mind, we want to do our part in helping PWDs obtain this right by providing them with more employment opportunities in our offices.”
The SSS will coordinate with the Department of Social Welfare and Development’s National Council on Disability Affairs and other agencies and organizations that share the same goals to disseminate vacancy announcements, to facilitate the hiring of PWDs, and to ensure the provision of special facilities.
As of December 2022, the SSS has 279 local and 28 foreign offices staffed by 6,525 regular employees. – Press release
