The agency plays an important role in ensuring that GSIS members enjoy all their privileges for the following reasons:
GSIS issues a monthly electronic billing file every 30 days to remind agencies on the total amount of premiums due.
The agency is likewise responsible for updating the members’ membership profiles. It must submit to GSIS, through the designated agency authorized officer, any change in the employment status of members using the Agency Remittance Advice (ARA), the basis for updating the membership profile to reflect the new salary rate, employment status, position and any other important information. The advice must be submitted with the Electronic Remittance File (ERF), within the first 10 days of the month.
