MANILA – The social security system (SSS) added the pension loan program (PLP) and pension benefit modules in the ExpreSSS e-Learning portal (ExSSSel) in June and September 2021 respectively, where 1.8 million retirees can access more detailed information about the programs.
“We know the vulnerability of our retirees to the Covid-19 virus (coronavirus disease 2019). This is why the SSS has given them the opportunity to pursue an additional online learning experience from the comfort of their own homes, anytime and anywhere. With the flexible schedule, the ExSSSel portal will help our retirees to acquire more knowledge about SSS at their own pace and at their own pace. They can access it 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. They can also take the exam to assess their understanding, which makes it a more enjoyable and rewarding activity, ”said SSS President and CEO Aurora Ignacio , in a press release.
ExSSSel is an online computer training on various SSS programs which was initially launched in November 2020 and aims to educate members, employers and the general public through learnings based on SSS modules. They can study these modules at their convenience for free.
The ExSSSel portal can be done by these simple steps: select a module, register online, study the module, take the subsequent exam, and finally, wait for their e-certificates.
By selecting a module, members and interested persons can choose from: Module 1 (Illness), Module 2 (Maternity), Module 3 (Unemployment), Module 4 (Disability), Module 5 (Salary loan), Module 6 (Program pension loan)) and Module 7 (Retirement).
Users can also open multiple modules simultaneously.
After selecting a module, they will receive an online registration form via the Google form to fill out.
However, portal users should be reminded that they can only get their electronic certificate after achieving a pass rate of at least 80% after the post-exam.
The electronic certificate will be sent to their registered email address within seven working days from the time the participant has taken the post-exam and submitted the evaluation form.
As of August 31, 2021, SSS has issued a total of 9,643 e-certificates to ExSSSeL users who have successfully completed at least one module available on the portal.
Sickness benefit is the most viewed module with 15,413 views, followed by the maternity benefit module with 9,255 views.
“For those who have already accessed the ExSSSel portal, we thank you for your support of our e-learning portal and rest assured that we will soon include another set of modules.
