SSS grants benefits to family of slain OFW Jullebee Ranara

SOCIAL Security System (SSS) President and CEO Rolando Ledesma Macasaet handed over proceeds of benefit claims to Norlynda Cabiles, mother and SSS beneficiary of slain Overseas Filipino Worker (OFW), Jullebee Ranara, last March 22, 2023.

In a simple ceremony held at the SSS Main Office, Quezon City, Cabiles received more than P100,000 comprising of SSS Death and Funeral benefits, and financial assistance from SSS officials and employees.

“Considering the sacrifices being made by our OFWs by working in a foreign country and being away from their families for a long period of time, it is very important that they have an active SSS membership which will help them and their families in times of contingencies,” Macasaet said.

On behalf of the SSS, Macasaet also expressed his sincerest condolences to the family of Ranara and reiterated his continuous support and efforts towards the social security protection of OFWs. He also offered a job opportunity to Ranara’s siblings within the SSS.

Cabiles, on the other hand, thanked the SSS for the benefits she received, attributed to the hard work of her daughter, and additional financial support.

The SSS is a state-run social insurance institution that extends social security protection to Filipino workers in the private and informal sectors. Under the Social Security Law, it provides seven benefit programs namely, Sickness, Maternity, Unemployment, Retirement, Disability, Death, and Funeral, as well as various loan privileges.
