The Government Service Insurance System (GSIS) recently forged an agreement with the Philippine Postal Corporation (PhilPost) for the updating of records of all active GSIS pensioners aged 80 years old and above, and to ensure the uninterrupted payment of their pension.
The partnership aims to reach and serve pensioners who are residing in remote areas. It also complements GSIS’s existing program with the Philippine Statistics Authority (PSA, formerly NSO) on the monitoring of pensioners’ status.
PhilPost couriers, bearing letter of introduction from the GSIS, will deliver GSIS status verification forms (GSVF) to pensioners based on their registered addresses, and undertake the following validation activities:
- Confirm the pensioner’s identity by asking personal information questions
- Cross-check the information on the eCard, UMID card, or other valid IDs of the pensioner with those in the GSVF
- Take photos of the pensioner
PhilPost started the delivery of the GSVF last September 2, 2016. Around 64,000 pensioners nationwide will be covered by the activity.
