Bayan Muna Partylist Rep. Neri Colmenares yesterday urged both Houses of Congress in a press release to consider the bill increasing the monthly pension of all SSS pensioners by a maximum of P2,000.00 as one of the priority bills when session resumes today.
The House of Representatives passed on Second Reading last December 15, House Bill 4365 which increased SSS pension by a maximum of two thousand pesos per month. If the Senate will also approve its pending bills increasing SSS pension, then the bills can immediately be signed into law and the increase could take place this year, Colmenares said.
