GSIS-Surigao orients file handlers on updated EBCS 

BUTUAN CITY -- The Government Service Insurance System (GSIS) Surigao City Branch recently administered a two-day Electronic Remittance File (ERF) Handlers and Disbursing Officers’ Meeting on April 27-28, attended by 142 participants from the various government agencies in the provinces of Surigao del Norte and Surigao del Sur.

Sixty-seven out of the 142 participants showed up on the first day of the two-day event at the face-to-face assembly held at the Philippine Gateway Hotel, Surigao City. The said set up was made possible to cater agencies that have on-going unresolved internet connection issues caused by the Super Typhoon Odette. Meanwhile, the remaining 75 participants attended the second day of the meeting via Zoom platform.

The conference was spearheaded by the Billing, Collection and Reconciliation Division (BCRD) officers. Theresa Ferrer, BCRD chief, warmly welcomed the members.

Throughout the event, the new features and updates on the enhanced E-Billing and Collection System (EBCS) were extensively discussed by the unit’s team leader, Ellen Esguerra. Diverse sample scenarios were also handed by Staff Officer Melchora Agra to give the participants an overview in handling situations relating to EBCS. (GSIS-Surigao City/PIA-Surigao del Norte)
