According to the government employees’ insurer, it is best to plan and do the transactions before the system downtime.
The Government Service Insurance System is a government-owned social insurance institution that provides a defined benefit scheme under the law.
It insures its members against the occurrence of certain contingencies in exchange for their monthly premium contributions.
Members are entitled to an array of social security benefits, such as life insurance benefits, separation or retirement benefits, and disability benefits.
A non-government employee, self-employed or non-working persons are not applicable to become members of the GSIS. Instead, they are covered by the Social Security System (SSS).
The GSIS covers all government workers except the members of the Judiciary and Constitutional Commissions who are covered by separate retirement laws and contractual employees who have no employee-employer relationship with their agencies.
Uniformed members of the Armed Forces of the Philippines and the Philippine National Police, including the Bureau of Jail Management and Penology and the Bureau of Fire Protection, are also exempted to avail GSIS.
