What is Dunning?
Dunning is defined as the process of attempting to collect on account receivable, which occurs when customers do not pay promptly and/or in full.
This means that loan accounts with no paid amortization for more than six (6) months will be considered due and demandable or in default and will be subject to the interest and penalty below:
a. Interest equivalent to 12% per annum compounded monthly (p.a.c.m.) to be computed on the total outstanding obligation; and
b. Penalty of 6% p.a.c.m. from the date of default until the date of full payment.
All GSIS members are therefore encourage to settle their outstanding obligations before November 1, 2018 to avoid further charges from accruing on their loan accounts, whether such are in default or in arrears.
The outstanding balances of due and demandable loan accounts will continue to increase and incur interest and penalty charges overtime. If left unpaid, for a longer period, loan obligations, which include interest and penalties, may even exceed and impair the benefits of members as this will be deducted from their retirement, separation or life insurance benefits.
