    Lawmakers should consider stability of SSS fund - Palace

    Coloma was reacting to reports that some lawmakers are thinking of overriding the presidential veto on the proposed bill increasing the pension of retired SSS members.

    President Benigno S. Aquino on January 12 vetoed House Bill No. 5842, which provides a P2,000 hike that would benefit 2.1 million pensioners and their dependents.

    The President said that increasing the pension would shorten the life of the SSS, which at present has 31 million members.

    Mainam na isaalang-alang ng ating mga mambabatas ang kahalagahan na patatagin ang pondo ng SSS at tiyakin ang kasiguruhan ng pagbabayad ng benepisyo sa lahat ng mahigit 30 milyong miyembro nito, said Coloma in an interview over Radyo ng Bayan.

    The Palace official said the pensioners could get additional support from other government agencies.
