Following the Social Security System’s online application for calamity loans that gave those affected by the pandemic P20,000, the state-run insurance company has also made other benefit applications available digitally. Without a need for long queues and over-the-counter contacts, citizens can easily apply for these benefits from the safety of their homes.
