Bayanihan 2 Loan Moratorium Program

The Government Service Insurance System (GSIS) once again issued a temporary suspension for loan amortization for another sixty (60) days under the Bayanihan 2 Loan Moratorium Program. GSIS established the program in compliance with Republic Act No. 11494 entitled “Bayanihan to Recover as One Act”.

Under Bayanihan 2 Loan Moratorium Program, loan amortizations due in November and December 2020 are deferred and shall resume starting in January 2021. Moreover, borrowers shall pay no interest on the loan amortization during the period of the moratorium. The regular loan interests, however, shall still be incurred once the moratorium ends. GSIS first implemented the moratorium last March to June 2020.

  1. Thanks This refers to the Milestone benefits extended to pensioners. GSIS members not pensioners who reached 90 years should also included otherwise, the resolution will be discriminatory and selective. GSIS mandate is “to increase benefits to members “. Pensioners are members, but not all members are pensioners. Milestone benefits are not given across the board to all members. Only to those who have reached the age of 90 years old . This is quite a feat and I think we are not that many to bankrupt GSIS . I am submitting my plea to the wisdom and compassion of GSIS President and officials and find .my cause meritorious at this pandemic time. Thank you for your attention.
