Dads seek amendment of GSIS law

THE City Council during its regular session Monday presided over by City Vice Mayor Jocelyn “Bebot” B. Rodriguez adopted Resolution No. 14587-2023, requesting Congress to review and consider amendments to Republic Act No. 8291 (GSIS Law) and related laws on retirement packages in the Public Sector by allowing the voluntary contribution of elected officials who have completed one, two or three terms in office so as to complete the minimum 15 years of premium contribution to the GSIS, and by lowering the optional retirement age for government workers.

Councilor George S. Goking, PCL-CDO Chapter President, recalled that during the recent PCL-DILG board meeting, the request of PCL members for the same amendment of the GSIS law was also adopted.

Local elective officials who reached the maximum term limit of nine years are pushing that they be given the option to continue their contribution to GSIS, through voluntary contribution, so they can complete the fifteen-year minimum requirement of premium contribution to enable them to avail of retirement benefits.

Councilor George S. Goking is the author of the resolution.
