P1.4 Million worth of SSS Checks Gone with Hijackers

Got a bad news today especially for SSS members coming from Marikina, Lawton, Cubao, Diliman, Cainta, San Mateo and Antipolo. The SSS checks that should be delivered to you had been stolen by armed men who hijacked the delivery van of the Philippine Postal Corporation in Cainta, Rizal postal office on December 13, 2010.

The bad news was revealed by the SSS President and CEO during the press statement this Sunday.

The good news is that the total number of checks gone with the hijackers is only 125 and the banks were already told to reject those compromised checks. And there's nothing to worry about for the affected members of the Social Security System because those affected can still receive their claims although it will be a little bit delayed.
