The GSIS is one of the biggest social insurance institutions in the country. Most of its members are individuals who have either worked or are currently working in the government offices across the nation. Monthly, a part of their salary is deducted for remittance to the government agency as savings.

The GSIS membership is a mandate to government employees to widen their resources and prepare them for the future. Accumulated savings can get you qualified to the benefits, loans, and other services extended by the agency to its members.
