Do you already have identification cards (IDs) for SSS, Philhealth, and Pag-Ibig? Worry no more as the Philippine Government was able to come up with UMID or better known as Unified Multi-purpose ID to streamline the identification systems to all government agencies, and government-owned and controlled corporations (GOCCs).
The Philippine Social Security System (SSS) was founded in 1957 which is a social insurance program for employees in the Philippines. SSS is a goverment agency that provides health and retirement benefits to all paid up employees in the country. All SSS members can make a calamity or salary loans anytime. Calamity loans can be availed for times when the government declared an area where the SSS member lives is affected by flood, hit by an earthquake and experienced a natural disaster. Salary loans on the other hand would depend on the monthly salary of the employee.
