EastWest rural bank is top SSS collector
EastWest Rural Bank (EWRB) has been recognized for being a solid partner for pension funds and benefits.
The rural unit of the Gotianun-owned East West Banking Corp. brought home two awards from the Social Security System (SSS) for being the Best Collecting and Best Paying partner bank in the provinces.
The rural bank handed out the biggest amount of benefits to SSS members and also took in payments coursed through over-the-counter transactions.
The best part: it’s the first time when EWRB vied for the SSS annual awards.
“We are honored and grateful to win these awards for the first time. We are committed to do our part in advancing the welfare of Filipino workers and in helping SSS achieve its mandate,” EWRB President & CEO Elpidio F. Masbad III said in a statement.
Is it beginner’s luck, or are they out to corner this market for good? We’ll find out next year.
