160 Abra trike drivers, operators join TrikanSSSya project

By Maria Teresa B. Benas

BANGUED, Abra, July 12 (PIA) — Realizing the value of membership to the Social Security System,160 members of the Tricycle Operators and Drivers Association (TODA) plying the routes of Brgy. Calaba and Camp Juan Villamor Compound in this capital town joined the SSS-Trikansya Program (alkansya ng mga tricycle operators and drivers).

In a simple ceremony held at the Camp Juan Villamor Compound last week, the “alkanSSSya” (alkansya in Tagalog, or piggy banks) were installed at the TODA parking space in front of the guard house of the Camp Juan Villamor for their own convenience.

The occasion was led by Benedicta C. Garcia, SSS Bangued manager, and attended by SSS officials led by Vice-President Mae Catherine Ciriaco and Luis Olais, assistant vice president for Northern Luzon Cluster, and Sangguninag Panlalawigan member Ramon Dickson.

This was the second alkanSSSya installed in Abra. The first was installed at the Bangued Municipal Building during the launching of the TrikanSSSya Program in the province last year.

Under the project, tricycle drivers and operators are encouraged to become SSS members by contributing some amount per day to raise their monthly contribution.

Meanwhile, the SSS-Bangued had also started to implement the new Kasambahay Law last month. Relative to this, SSS had opened its office during Saturdays to accept registration for membership.

In an interview with Eric Andrada of SSS, he said the SSS had been implementing the mandatory coverage of house helpers since 1993. However, the passage of the Kasambahay Law has strengthened their mandate to implement the mandatory coverage of house helpers. Said law also provides more protection to the house helpers because of the provisions of compensation packages for the members, he added. (JDP/MTBB-PIA CAR,Abra)

  1. Tanim ka ng tanim pero iba naman ang nag-aani? Sana huag mangyari dito, sabagay private ito, counterpart ng GSIS pero bawat contribution siguraduhin ninyong nakapasok. Fake or genuine ba ang resibo? Mahirap na ma’am kunayo Magandang future investment ninyo ito pag hindi sila buklis/bukatot katulad ng taga gobierno.

  2. Dahi sa dami ng hindi kanais2 na karanasan, hindi mawawala ng ating pagdududja. Peru karamihan naman, ay parang sugal lang, makipagsapalaran. Man must take the risk, if not, he will not learn, he will not achieve n he is nothing. Kailangan laging positibo ng isip, trusting more on God’s power and blessings than his own limited capabilities. I think, investment in SSS is good for these hardworking trikedrivers for their protections and for future security.
