SSS runs after erring employers in Butuan City

BUTUAN CITY – The Social Security System (SSS) Butuan Branch headed by Perkins B. Calixtro led the issuance of show cause orders to some 21 delinquent establishments, during the “Run After Contribution Evaders” (RACE) campaign to intensify employer compliance.

Calixtro said that four employers failed to register their business while the remaining 17 employers incurred past-due contributions with penalties amounting to over P2.17 million.   

“We are giving them a 15-day period to explain why no legal action should be taken against them. Our branch personnel are ready to assist them to process their registration requirements, present the necessary employment records and settle their contribution delinquency,” he said.

He also added that delinquent employers were urged to avail of the Contribution Penalty Condonation Program to settle their delinquencies in flexible payment terms.

“In fact, the Supreme Court upholds the prime duty of the SSS in promoting a sound and viable social security system and that includes the collection of past-due contributions from employers,” Calixtro said.

In conclusion, Calixtro said that erring employers who will be found guilty for violation of Republic Act No. 11199 or Social Security Act of 2018 will face six to 12 years jail time and monetary sanction ranging from P5,000 to P20,000. (SSS-Butuan City Branch/PIA-Caraga)
