TACLOBAN CITY- The Government Service Insurance System (GSIS) is calling pensioners who are 79 years old and below to have their UMID (unified multipurpose identification) cards revalidated by the end of this month.
Failure to do would mean possible suspension of their monthly pensions, GSIS officials said during a media forum on June 26.
GSIS branch manager Igmidio Ponay Jr. said that the affected pensioners should personally appear before their office or use GWAPS kiosk to reactivate their UMIDs and ensure that they could receive their monthly pensions.
Ponay said that pensioners who are 80 years old and above and those suffering from medical problems would not be required to personally appear before their office.
They could instead request any GSIS personnel to have the process be done right at their homes, he added.
Ponay warned that failure of the concerned pensioners to have their UMID cards revalidated would mean suspension of their monthly pensions for three months.
For more questions and clarifications, affected pensioners can call in this telephone nos. 323-2506 or 523-0125 or visit their website www.gsis.gov.ph.
