GSIS pensioners told, renew active status
|Posted by Manila Mail under Philippine News|
MANILA – The Government Service Insurance System reminded its old-age and survivorship pensioners to renew their active status on their birth month to ensure the receipt of their monthly pension.
The agency mandates all its pensioners to comply with this requirement, dubbed as the annual renewal of active status, to avoid suspension of their pension.
To renew their active status, pensioners must bring their eCard Plus to the nearest GSIS servicing office or the nearest government establishment installed with a GSIS Wireless Automated Processing System kiosk or G-W@PSkiosk on their birth month.
Then, they must place their eCard Plus on the card reader of the kiosk.
Afterwards, they must choose the â€˜Annual Reportingâ€™ icon using the kiosk?s touch screen and then select any pre-registered finger. Finally, they must lightly scan their finger using the fingerprint scanner of the kiosk to complete the process which takes only a few seconds to accomplish.
â€œThe ARAS requirement is a mechanism by which the pensioners themselves control their pension. Their continuous receipt of pension depends on their dutiful compliance with this requirement,” said Winston Garcia, GSIS president and general manager.
He did not explain how pensioners living abroad could activate their status with GSIS.
