"You don’t buy life insurance because you are going to die, but because those you love are going to live." - Unknown author


Mambajao, Camiguin --- One of the livelihood beneficiaries of Hubangon Fisherfolk Association benefitted from Social Security Program with the Social Security System (SSS) that the organization instituted.  Mr. John Anthony Babia is the beneficiary of the late Gemma Babia, his wife and member of the said Association. The association started its SSS enrolment for its members early last year (2018).  Mr. Babia is expected to claim a funeral benefit worth P20,000.00 and a lump-sum death benefit which will be determined by the SSS.


The Hubangon Fisherfolk Association is engaged in the production of Broiler Chicken Project which was granted under the DOLE Integrated Livelihood and Emergency Employment Program (DILEEP) funds through the Department of Labor and Employment, Regional Office No. X (DOLE-X) Camiguin Provincial Field Office (Cam PFO). Part of their income during each harvest cycle was allotted for the payment of SSS premiums of its members. One of the insured members is Gemma Babia, who died of toxic goiter this January 2019. She was the caretaker of the project for three years which gave her a monthly salary of PhP3,000.00 and an honorarium per harvest cycle.


“Nagpasalamat ko ug dako sa DOLE kay tungod sa livelihood nga gihatag sa among association na member mi tanan sa SSS ug dako ang na tabang sama nako karon naay funeral benefit ug lumpsum na ma-claim sa SSS. (I am very thankful to DOLE for granting us the capital financial assistance for the livelihood program, which paved the way for us, members of the association, to be members of the SSS. This is also a big help like me receiving the lump sum funeral benefit,)” Mr. Babia said.


DOLE-X Cam PFO Chief Emmanuel G. Toledo continuously encouraged the livelihood beneficiaries to insure their members with the SSS.
