SSS President and Chief Executive Officer Emilio de Quiros, Jr. said the nine winners will each receive P10,000 as cash prize under the Member-Get-Member (MGM) promo, which offers incentives to OFWs who encourage other overseas workers to become active SSS members.
"OFWs can win as 'nominators' through payment of contributions and referral of newly-active overseas workers or 'nominees' to the SSS. Participating members help fellow OFWs prepare for the future by urging them to be covered members," he said.
The list of winners for January include Teophe Quijano Mendaros (Brunei); Cristina Cananea Quimado and Maria Riza Santander Wabinga (Hong Kong); Mocita Maron Manuel (Riyadh, Saudi Arabia); and Pensees Dawny Rodriguez Figueroa and Gemma Soriano Biong (Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates).
