SSS warns pensioners vs. loan scam

The Social Security System is warning the public against unscrupulous individuals pretending to be their employees.

In an advisory issued Friday, September 17, SSS urged its members, especially the pensioners, not to transact businesses with fixers and scammers.

The advisory said they received reports that there were people going around barangays in La Castellana, Negros Occidental, onboard a white van, pretending to be SSS employees.

They encouraged the pensioners to apply for a pension loan, the advisory said.

The modus is that they bring the victims to the SSS branch to apply for a loan then they take the cash card, where the money will be remitted, in exchange for a small amount, the advisory said.

SSS clarified that their employees are not going around the communities to encourage pensioners to apply for loans.

The public is urged to report to the barangay or the police if they encounter individuals pretending to be SSS employees.

SSS also advised their members not to give their social security number, user name, and password to anyone as it could compromise their account.*
