MEMBERS of Social Security System (SSS) can soon pay their monthly contributions and loan amortizations using their mobile phones.
This comes after SSS tapped Globe Telecom’s G-Xchange Inc. for wireless payments using GCash, which is offered exclusively to Globe and TM Network subscribers.
G-Cash is a free mobile application, which serves as a virtual wallet offering users convenient money transfers using mobile phones. For SSS transactions, a one-time registration is required and payments are free of charge.
Mario Sibucao, SSS Member Services Division vice president, said the facility will be opened to household employers, voluntary members, and self-employed individuals including farmers, fishermen and non-working spouses.
