Implementation of KaltaSSS Collect Program continues in the City Government of Panabo.
Mayor Jose E. Relampagos agreed to continue the KaltaSSS Collect Program for job order personnel in the City Government of Panabo through a MOA signing between the LGU and SSS through Mindanao SSS Division Head Rizalito Albert C. De Leon together with SSS Panabo Branch Manager Alnora Y. Presbitero and Maren Estrella on Feb. 18, 2020 at the Mayor’s Conference Room.

SSS member can avail many benefits such as sickness, maternity, disability, retirement, death, funeral and salary loan benefits where a member-borrower must have a 36 posted monthly contribution, 6 of which should be within the last 12 months prior to the month of filing of application.
The program, dated back in January 2015, is pursuant to the Sangguniang Panlungsod Resolution No. 441, Series of 2014, which ties the LGU and the SSS in implementing the Expanded SSS Self-Employed Program.
