SSS opens bigger, but free-rent, branch in Cubao

With a spike of about 21,000 additional transactions in the first half of 2017 alone, the Social Security System (SSS) branch in Cubao transferred to a bigger location in Puregold Building along Aurora Boulevard but still saved from rent-free arrangements.  

SSS-Cubao facilitated 326,889 transactions during the first semester of 2017, higher by seven percent from the same period of last year.

“Cubao is one of the highly-urbanized areas in Quezon City where a huge number of commercial and residential units are located, thus, a greater demand for SSS services among employers and members,” Social Security Commission Chairman Amado D. Valdez said. 

SSS Cubao serves 47 barangays with 13,000 employers and more than 91,000 employees, self-employed and voluntary members. 

The huge bulk of transactions in SSS-Cubao are contribution payments with over 127,000, followed by loan repayments and registration with more than 57,000 and 53,000 respectively. The branch also processed nearly 53,000 benefit applications and more than 36,000 salary loan applications. 

But even with the bigger location, the pension fund managed to save from rent-free office space for five years. The current office has a floor area of 1,134 square meters, which is larger than its previous office location along EDSA measuring 855.54 square meters. 

“We would like to thank Puregold Realty and Management Inc. Chairman Lucio L. Co for providing SSS a more strategic and rent-free office space where our clients can conveniently transact with us. Through our special agreement with Puregold, we were able to reduce our operational costs, thereby creating additional savings for our future programs,” SSS President and Chief Executive Officer Emmanuel Dooc said.  

With an average transaction volume of 2,500 per day, the newly-relocated branch office is open from 8a.m. to 6p.m., Mondays to Fridays. It offers a wide array of services such as issuance of Social Security (SS) number, Employer ID numbers and Certificates of Registration for employers; Unified Multi-purpose Identification (UMID) Data Capture; Physical Examination (PE) Center; tellering counters; and receipt of benefit and salary loan applications.  

Aside from SSS Cubao branch, members and employers can also visit the SSS Service Office located at the 3rd Floor of Ali Mall for application of SS and Employer ID numbers, submission of loan and benefit application, and UMID Data Capture every Tuesdays to Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.
