Philippine President benigno s. aquino’s Social Contract w/ the people

“From a government that treats its people as an export commodity and a means to earn foreign exchange, disregarding the social cost to Filipino families…to a government that creates jobs at home, so that working abroad will be a choice rather than a necessity, and when its citizens do choose to become Overseas Filipino Workers, their welfare and protection will still be the government’s priority.”

saving mechanisms for migrant remittances
SAVING MECHANISMS FOR MIGRANT REMITTANCES
  • Social Security System (SSS)
  • Allows its members to take part in Flexifund, a savings program that pays 8% interest per annum and that supplements a member’s regular sickness, retirement, and death benefits offered by the SSS.
  • Pag-IBIG Fund (Home Development Mutual Fund)
  • Provides pay returns of 3% for dollar contributions and 7.5% for peso contributions.
  • Both Pag-IBIG and SSS, were restructured to serve as savings mechanisms and to respond to two of the main uses for migrant remittances – retirement/health and housing.
