WHY WE NEED TO UPDATE OWWA MEMBERSHIP





Nabasa ko tong post ng Welfare Officer na assigned sa Philippine Embassy sa South Korea na si Ma'am Mila Nuval-Pena at naisip ko na mas marapat na ibahagi din ito sa mas nakakarami lalo na't me mga kababayan tayo na ayaw na magbayad sa OWWA sa kadahilanan na hindi naman daw nila nagagamit ito.








Ito lang naman ay aking pananaw lang, na ang OWWA ay parang isang Insurance na sa kagandahan naman ay hindi lang kapag may mangyari asa iyo ay dun mo lang sya magagamit. 




Me isang pangyayari noong nakaraang taon na ang isa nating kababayan na TNT ng wala pang isang taon at expired na ang OWWA payment nya ang inilapit sa ating mga kawani dito at umaasa sana sila na mabibigyan ng benepisyo. Tinulungan naman nila diumano ang kawawang pamilya ng OFW na mapabilis ang pagpauwi ng katawan ng ating kabayan ngunit hindi na maibibigay ang benepisyo na para sa mga aktibong miembro sa kadahilanang paso na ang membership nya.

Kaya kahit na magTNT ay wag panghinayangan ang ibinayad dahil hindi naman tayo nagbayad para magamit ang benepisyong ito, bagkus ay kung sakaling mangailangan lamang.


Katulad ng sinasabi ko sa aking mga FINANCIAL LITERACY TRAININGS  na ang Insurance ay kahalintulad ng isang FIRETRUCK, binili ito para gamitin kung sakaling magkasunog hindi para magkasunog.

News Release

Families of Deceased OFWs to receive social benefits from OWWA
The Overseas Workers Welfare Administration extends its heartfelt condolences to the bereaved families of Anselmo Ramos Cayabyab, Jr. and Oscar Briotonel Ilagan, OFWs who were killed in appalling circumstances while on vacation in the Philippines.
OFW Anselmo R. Cayabyab, worker in Papua New Guinea, died due to a vehicular accident while on their way to a family picnic in San Fabian, Pangasinan. OFW Oscar B. Ilagan, on the other hand, works as a factory worker in Athens, Greece, and was stabbed to death while sleeping at their house in Batangas. Both OFWs were active members of OWWA at the time of death.
Labor and Employment Secretary Rosalinda Dimapilis- Baldoz instructed OWWA at once to assist the worker’s families in coping up with the OFWs’ death and to facilitate the release of their benefits as OWWA-members.
As active OWWA-members, the families of the deceased OFWs are entitled to Death and Burial Benefit amounting to Php 220,000.00 as the cause of their death is accidental in nature. The surviving heirs are, likewise, eligible to the Education and Livelihood Assistance Program (ELAP) where the surviving spouse will receive Php15,000.00-worth of livelihood package and the first-born child is extended educational assistance until he/she finishes college education. Concerned OWWA Regional Offices will also provide psycho-social counseling to the families of the deceased workers. 
OWWA Administrator Rebecca J. Calzado reiterated her reminder to OFWs to renew their OWWA Membership to have social protection while they are still active overseas workers. “By being an OWWA Member, you don’t just have access to what the agency has to offer to OFWs, but you and your families are also protected especially during distressful situations,” Administrator Calzado said.
The aforementioned social benefits are just some of the many programs and services offered by the government, through OWWA, to carry out its mandate of protecting and promoting the interest and welfare of OFWs. The government continues to strengthen its mechanism of empowering the Filipino migrant workers as the government is one with them in their aspiration of uplifting the lives of their families and the country as a whole. xxx
