SSS officials led by president and CEO Emilio S. De Quiros, Jr. conducted the on-site services and addressed the concerns of Filipino expatriates.


During the briefing, De Quiros and senior vice president for International Operations Judy Frances A. See discussed the current SSS services available to Overseas Filipinos. A new program for Overseas Filipino Workers (OFW) was also introduced.

The OFW Program is one of the results of the Philippine Government’s aim of providing protection to labor whether it is domestically locally or overseas.  It tries to reach Filipinos all over the world and offer them the social security program of the Philippines.
