SSS introduces new retirement savings scheme




September 26, 2014 8:20 pm
by RITCHIE A. HORARIO



The voluntary provident fund program, dubbed the SSS Personal Equity and Savings Option (SSS PESO) Fund, is an alternative and tax-free investment that would help members accumulate adequate income upon retirement and earn a reasonable rate of return, said Emilio S. de Quiros, Jr., SSS president and chief executive officer.


Quote:
Savings in the SSS PESO Fund are invested in sovereign guaranteed investments, where 65 percent of the total fund is allocated for retirement, and 35 percent for medical and general purposes.



“The portion for retirement is guaranteed to earn income based on interest rates of five-year Treasury yields, while earnings of the fund allotted for medical and general purposes will be based on 364-day Treasury bill rates,” De Quiros said.

Quote:
The Budget Department has approved the release of P3.78 billion to the National Housing Authority for the relocation and resettlement of informal settler families living in danger zones in Metro Manila.


The government allotted funds from the 2014 General Appropriations Act to assist informal settlers residing in hazardous areas, especially near waterways such as creeks, rivers and esteros.

Kabobohan. Why don't you sell your brain since obviously it has no use.

Even Art for Sale as Philippine Pension Hunts for Yield





Robert Vergara, keen to shore up returns at the Philippines’ biggest state pension fund as bond yields slump, is considering selling paintings hanging at the national museum.

Government Service Insurance System may put around 100 works by Philippine artists including Juan Luna and Fernando Amorsolo up for sale over the coming 10 years as local consumers become more wealthy, GSIS President Vergara said in an Oct. 21 interview in Manila. The $20 billion fund targets returns of at least 8.5 percent to meet obligations to the 1.4 million workers whose savings it manages and has generated between 9 and 12 percent over the last three years, he said.

“We do believe that art is best left to collectors as opposed to a pension fund,” he said. “The collection is not something that generates a return on its own.”

Aquino signs law giving health insurance to all seniors


The new law removes the qualification that a senior citizen has to be an indigent before being covered by PhilHealth

MANILA, Philippines – Under a new law, over 6 million senior citizens in the country can avail of health benefits enjoyed by Philippine Health Insurance Corporation (PhilHealth) members just by presenting their valid identification cards to hospitals, the main author of the measure said on Tuesday, November 11.


President Benigno Aquino III signed Republic Act (RA) 10645 on November 5, amending RA 9994 of the Expanded Senior Citizens' Act of 2010 by removing the qualification that a senior citizen has to be an indigent before being covered by the Philippine Health Insurance Corporation (PhilHealth).

Hellhole in Manila
Philippine Daily Inquirer 2:32 AM | Wednesday, November 19th, 2014

Horror stories keep piling up about the Manila shelter for street kids that’s been described as run like a “concentration camp.” That’s a loaded, incendiary phrase that should not be bandied about lightly, conjuring as it does the particular horror of the Holocaust in World War II. But perhaps welfare observers who’ve been to the Manila Reception and Action Center (RAC) could be forgiven for employing the word to describe the appalling conditions they found at the center. The picture they enclosed in the third letter they sent to the Manila City Hall powerfully buttresses their charge.

The photo is of a naked boy named “Frederico” lying on a cold concrete floor, and it is a truly heart-rending image—a shockingly emaciated frame, ribs and bones protruding, skin covered in rashes. Catherine Scerri, deputy director of Bahay Tuluyan, a nongovernment organization advocating children’s rights, said she took the photo on Oct. 12 during a visit to the center. The boy, said to have been found abandoned in Paco and brought to the shelter on March 8, also had a black eye. Staff members of the center apparently made no effort to find out who the boy was; his real name, age and address remained unknown right up to his transfer to another youth center seven months later. As to why he was left in such a miserable state, the staff said the center lacked funds for medical treatment.

The implementation of a six-year-old law that would make it easier for ordinary citizens to put up retirement funds came one step closer last week, as regulators approved yet another set of rules for investment managers.


The Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas (BSP) at the weekend announced the approval of guidelines for the accreditation of Personal Equity Retirement Act (Pera) market participants.

Toward health for all



Horace Templo

Quote:
PhilHealth has moved closer toward becoming an authentic universal social health insurance program for all Filipinos with the removal recently of a significant stumbling block to its achievement.


But by now, all 6.1 million senior citizens are entitled to PhilHealth coverage after PNoy signed into law last November 5 Republic Act No. 10645.

PH AWARDED $5M IN T3 CASE



By Amado P. Macasaet
December 12, 2014



Quote:
The International Center for Settlement of Investment Dispute (ICSID), the arbitration arm of the World Bank based in Washington DC ordered the German partner of the Filipino group that constructed NAIA Terminal 3 to pay the Philippine government $5 million in damages for violating the anti-dummy law.


A ranking official of the Office of the Solicitor General said the defeat of Fraport in the arbitration case in Washington practically doomed the separate arbitration request filed by Cheng Yong, principal stockholder of Piatco, with the International Chamber of Commerce in Singapore.

IT in government
Philippine Daily Inquirer 2:09 AM | Friday, February 27th, 2015

Information technology is now an essential part of life. From the individual who uses a smartphone or laptop to the company that relies on big databases and cloud computing, IT has made tasks easier to accomplish and goals faster to achieve. It has, in short, resulted in efficiency.

The same can be true for the government, especially in the way it deals with ordinary citizen. As it is, the way state agencies conduct many essential public services can best be described as antiquated. Ordinary citizens’ transactions with the government—particularly with local government units—are so time-consuming, aggravating, and prone to corruption because they have to deal with manual records to be printed on paper and face-to-face dealings with government employees.

New DOST project aims to streamline gov't workflows
February 26, 2015 11:40am

Quote:

According to Louis Casambre, DOST Undersecretary and Executive Director of the Information and Communications Technology Office (ICT Office), the aforementioned policy documents are called the Philippine e-Government Interoperability Framework (PeGIF). The PeGIF will set the standards for government agencies and private industry partners on the issue of sharing and reusing data and information, and the operation of applications.

“Each policy document under PeGIF is drafted by a working group composed of IT experts from the government, private sector, and the academe,” Casambre said. “The document is then presented and reviewed by a bigger body of stakeholders.”
