ECC 12 participates in Comprehensive Social Benefits Program Cascading Session

In response to the call of the President Rodrigo R. Duterte for effective and efficient delivery of social benefits or assistance to battle duty casualties and their families, two of the regional staff of the Employees Compensation Commission-Regional Extension Unit 12 attended the Comprehensive Social Benefits Program Regional Cascading Sessions held at Mt. Sabrina Panoramic View and Resort, Brgy. Tambler, in Gen. Santos last February 15, 2018.

 

CBSP or Comprehensive Social Benefits Program is a priority program of the President Duterte which aims to provide social benefits to battle duty casualties and injured and members of Armed Forces of the Philippines (AFP) and the Philippine National Police (PNP). The CBSP Regional Cascading Sessions aim to create a regional working group in each region nationwide to assist in the timely provision of benefits under the CBSP.

           

The activity was spearheaded by the Department of Interior and Local Government and participating agencies were represented including the Department of Labor and Employment and ECC. Director Sisinio B. Cano of DOLE 12 led the DOLE participation in the said activity. Participants of the said sessions were oriented on program’s objectives, target beneficiaries, components, requirements, and prescribed timelines in delivering the benefits under CBSP. 

 

Providing additional benefits such as sickness, disability, funeral, and rehabilitation services to the battle casualties and injured has already been part of the Employees Compensation Program of ECC. Hence when one army asked the facilitator during the breakout session, “CBSP is limited to battle casualties or injured, how about when uniformed personnel met an accident going home?” Christopher Gamboa of ECC 12 raised a statement saying, “ECC covers uniformed personnel who become victim of vehicular accidents as long as no diversion to usual route going home or coming to the company was made.”

 

The cascading sessions ended with a challenge from the DILG to fast track the assistance and implement the agreements during the breakout session. END/CGamboa
