GSIS beefs up support to members, pensioners amid COVID-19 pandemic

ILIGAN CITY, Oct. 9 (PIA) - Government Service Insurance System (GSIS) has stepped up its programs to help its members and pensioners cope up with the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic. 

GSIS Iligan Branch Manager Alexis Arumpac shared in a virtual press briefing that GSIS has opened its COVID-19 Emergency Loan program in response to the President Rodrigo Duterte's proclamation extending the state of calamity throughout the country. 

Under this program, qualified borrowers with an existing emergency loan may borrow up to P40,000 to pay off their previous emergency loan balance and still receive a maximum net amount of P20,000. Those without existing emergency loan may apply for P20,000.  

"This loan is non-renewable, payable in 36 equal monthly installments at an interest rate of six percent (6%) computed in advance," he said.

The COVID-19 Emergency Loan program can be availed until December 27, 2020. 

Arumpac further said they also re-opened the GSIS Financial Assistance Loan (GFAL), a loan program to save its members from the bondage of debt. 

“In this program, GSIS allows the members to consolidate and transfer their existing loan balances amounting to as much P500,000. GSIS will pay the outstanding balance of that member to the lenders. In turn, the members will pay the balance to GSIS at a lower monthly amortization and interest rate of 6% per annum for a period of six years.

In compliance with the Bayanihan to Heal As One Act, the State pension fund is also granting a 60-day moratorium on loan payments of its active members and pensioners starting November. 

Arumpac said the collections of loan payments for the months of November and December 2020 shall be deferred and resumed on January 1, 2021.

Moreover, GSIS suspended the annual personal information revalidation (APIR) for pensioners, a process of renewing the status of pensioners to prove that they are still alive. 

Arumpac said the APIR serves as the basis of the continuation of their monthly pension.

"Tuloy-tuloy ang kanilang pension kahit hindi sila magrenew ng kanilang status," he added.

Meanwhile, GSIS is also set to launch its computer loan program and educational loan program.

"The computer loan program is already approved but not yet officially launched. This is a one time loan to run for a period of six months in support of DepEd's Basic Education Learning Continuity Plan for the school year 2020-2021," Arumpac said.

The member can avail P30,000 payable in 36 monthly installments at 6% internet per annum. This can be applied through GW@PS kiosk machine or over the counter.

The educational loan program, on the other hand, is in support of the call of the President for credit support in education so that students can stay in school despite the economic difficulty. 

"This is offered to GSIS members to pay for the tuition fees and other school expenses of their nominated student-beneficiary. The term of the loan is a maximum of 10 years," he added.

Because of these programs, Arumpac said the GSIS was cited by the 2020 Stevie International Business Awards for having the “Most Valuable Government Response to the COVID-19 Pandemic ” in the world. (APB/PIA-10)

Para sa mga Pulahan

Kung narito ka ngayon. Marahil ay isa ka sa mga napadpad o mas magandang sabihin ay isa ka sa marites na nakatambay sa page ng mga kakampinks. Kung tama ako, para sayo talaga to!  Para sa mga PULAHAN. Wala ba kayong page na nagmamahal sa inyo kaya andito kayo sa page ng mga kakampinks? :) Salamat pa rin sa pagdalaw kahit ang purpose niyo talaga ay ang ibash kami. ✌️

Bakit Uto-Uto ang mga Pulahan?

Yung tipong habang tumitingin ka sa feed mo may nakita kang nag-share ng mga conspiracy theory. Bakit ba naeenganyo sila? Paniwalang paniwala sila. Basahin ang maikling kasagutan tungkol dito. It makes them feel special and different. It gives them a feeling of being better than others, of having their eyes opened to a 'truth' that others don't see. That's why some call non-believers 'sheeple.' I think it's similar to the feeling we get whenever we learn an obscure yet interesting piece of trivia. The thought of "No one else knows it!" I also think conspiracies appeal to the way humans think, especially now. A desire to search for patterns. There has to be reason and purpose for anything. But this is not right! I still blame the lack of the fundamental research skills that needs to be taught in school. I believe you get to have a full subject on your 4th year, but investigative skills and fact checking should be honed at a young age.

Now, why so sudden bigla kayong nagreklamo? eh diba ginusto niyo 'yan, honestly dito samin nagsasabing nagsisisi sila sa naboto nila, for me hindi na kasalanan ng mga politiko na naloko nila kayo dahil there are so many evidences na.
