SSS urges availment of contribution penalty condonation programs for delinquent employers

Wazzup Pilipinas!?

The Social Security System (SSS) called on employers who failed to remit the contributions of their workers in the previous months and years to avail of the contribution penalty condonation programs during its recent nationwide conduct of the Run After Contribution Evaders (RACE) operations.

SSS President and Chief Executive Officer Rolando Ledesma Macasaet encouraged delinquent employers to settle their contribution delinquencies through its Contribution Penalty Condonation, Delinquency Management and Restructuring Program (CPCoDe MRP) for business employers and the Contribution Penalty Condonation and Restructuring Program (CPCR-P) for household employers.

Under these contribution penalty condonation programs, SSS assists business and household employers in defraying their delinquencies by allowing them to pay unremitted contributions while condoning their accrued penalties.

“SSS always take into consideration the welfare of its members and its employers which is the primary reason why we offer these condonation programs to help them out in settling their contribution delinquencies with us. With the ongoing pandemic, we understand the economic hardships that they are currently experiencing,” Macasaet said.

The CPCoDe MRP covers all employers classified as single proprietors, corporations, partnerships, cooperatives, and associations who have incurred delinquencies in contribution payments, including penalties, from the start of their actual date of operation.

SSS Account Management Group Concurrent Acting Head Neil F. Hernaez said that under the program, delinquent business employers would pay the unremitted SS contributions plus a legal interest of six percent (6%) per annum during the period where the employer has shown proof that the business suffered a net loss. At the same time, SSS will condone the penalties incurred during the delinquency period.

“Delinquent employers can pay it in full or on an installment basis. Those who wish to settle it in full payment must pay it within 15 calendar days from receipt of the Notice of Approval by the SSS. On the other hand, employers who will avail of the installment option will need to pay a down payment equivalent to at least 5% of the total amount of delinquency while they can pay the remaining balance up to 48 months,” Hernaez explained.

Meanwhile, the CPCR-P covers household employers who have delinquencies in remitting the contributions of their kasambahays or house helpers since the start of their employment.

Interested business and household employers may visit the nearest SSS Branch Office with jurisdiction over their accounts for the requirements and additional information on availing the said penalty condonation programs.

FEU-Manila Film Students set to release debut film "Hakbang Saan?" - A poignant reality of urban life in Manila

Wazzup Pilipinas!?

Talented film students from FEU-Manila, Kalye Productions, are preparing to release their first film called "Hakbang Saan?" It tells the story of Benjo, a man from a province that struggles to survive in the urban life that Manila offers. The film showcases the unfortunate reality of living as a poor man in the country. It centralizes on debunking the idea of hope in urbanization while highlighting the struggles and challenges that people from lower socioeconomic status have to endure to fend for themselves daily. The entirety of the setting and perspective will be shown through the eyes of Benjo, accentuating rapid urbanization and the realism associated with living in Manila.

The film is directed by Kyle Trinidad and was created through a collaboration of different creative minds. Anna Valle wrote the story, Andre Coros developed the screenplay, and Ernest Joseph Manalili was the Director of Photography. Arianna Baltan produced the film with Kale Aaron Baccay as the Assistant Director and Rhodie Maria CerdiƱa, Jiro Manuel Gendrano, and Harbie Lo as Camera Operators. Karl Ferrer, the Editor, skillfully handled the post-production.

Nel Estuya, a freelance film actor, plays the lead role of Benjo. Estuya's remarkable acting skills have been displayed in mainstream and independent films like Goyo: Ang Batang Heneral and Delia and Sammy. He also has been recognized in SinePiyu XV: Liwayway for his outstanding performances in Kwentong Barbero and Hanggang sa Dulo ng Mundo, which have earned their spots as finalists in the All Tamaraws Division. Estuya's portrayal of Benjo is subtle and authentic, making the film a compelling watch for those searching for their sense of belonging in the world.

Kalye Productions is excited to release "Hakbang Saan?" on May 20 in Viddsee and hopes that the film will show the audience the realities of urban life. To learn more about the release of "Hakbang Saan?" and Kalye Productions, you can visit their Facebook page @kalyeproductions.
