SSS to provide summer jobs for laid off workers’ children in Surigao Norte

The Social Security System (SSS) branch office here will allocate six slots to college students for a two-month summer job training program dubbed as “Student-Trainees for Summer Training Program on Social Security Services” starting in April.

The move is in line with the President’s call in reducing the impact of the effects of global financial crisis.

SSS Branch Manager Ricardo Habal in a press statement said that the objective of the program is to provide hands-on training on administration and implementation of social security programs among students who are SSS members or children of SSS members.

In Surigao City, they are prioritizing students who are among those children of workers laid off from their jobs in the mining sector during the onset of global financial slowdown during the last quarter of 2008.

Also, one important qualification is that the applicant, or his/her parent/uncle/aunt is separated from employment within the last 12 months prior to the filing of application due to closure, downsizing or temporary suspension of operations of the company as a result of the present economic crisis, and is currently not employed.

SSS will also require from the student-applicant birth certificate secured from the LCR/NSO, latest school registration card, application form, valid school ID and a proof of separation from employment of the applicant or his/her parent. (PIA-Surigao del Norte)
