Nicolas urged SSS members to open bank accounts because SSS management has approved the recommendation to pay all the loan proceeds and other benefits through an online banking facility.

He clarified that proceeds of this loan program are not sure to be made through online bank crediting because SSS officials are still finalizing agreements with several banks “but definitely, the benefits that have been approved earlier can be sent to the members’ bank accounts anytime.”
