Mario FetalinoAROUND 1.8 million retirement pensioners can safely access a more detailed information about the programs of the Social Security System (SSS) amid the pandrmic.

It’s because SSS added the Pension Loan Program (PLP) and Retirement Benefit Modules in the ExpreSSS e-Learning or ExSSSel Portal last June and September 2021, respectively.

The agency said it knows the vulnerability of pensioners to the COVID-19 virus that’s why SSS gave them an opportunity to pursue an additional e-learning experience at the comfort of their homes, anytime and anywhere.

With the flexible schedule, ExSSSel Portal will help pensioners gain more knowledge about SSS at their own pace and time.

They can access it 24 hours a day, seven days a week. They can also take the exam to assess their understanding, which makes it a more enjoyable and rewarding activity.

SSS President and Chief Executive Officer Aurora C. Ignacio said the ExSSSel Portal is an online computer-based training about various SSS programs which was initially launched last November 2020.

It aims to educate members, employers and the general public through SSS module-based learnings.

They can study these modules at their own convenience for free.

ExSSSel Portal can be done by following these simple steps: (1) select a module, (2) register online, (3) study the module, (4) take the post examination, and lastly, (5) wait for their e-certificates.

In selecting a module, members and interested individuals can choose from: Module 1 (Sickness), Module 2 (Maternity), Module 3 (Unemployment), Module 4 (Disability), Module 5 (Salary Loan), Module 6 (Pension Loan Program)and Module 7 (Retirement). Users canalso open multiple modules simultaneously.

Members and other individuals can go to http://bit.ly/ExSSSeL_Portal to register. After selecting a module,they will receive an online registration form via Google Form for them to fill out.

However, portal users must be reminded that they can only get only their e-certificate after obtaining a passing rate of at least 80% after the post-examination.

The e-certificate will be sent to their registered e-mail address within seven working days from the time the participant took the post examination and submitted the evaluation form.

As of August 31, 2021, SSS has issued a total of 9,643 e-certificates to ExSSSeL users who have successfully completed at least one module available in the portal.

Sickness Benefit is the most viewed Module with 15,413, followed by Maternity Benefit Module with 9,255 views.

For those who have already accessed the ExSSSel Portal, SSS is grateful to their support to its online learning portal.

SSS assured pensioners it will include another set of modules soon. It also encouraged the rest of the learning enthusiasts, especially SSS members, pensioners, and employers, to explore the ExSSSel Portal to be fully knowledgeable on the SSS benefits and privileges.

More e-learnings are apparently important and should be welcomed with open arms as we don’t when the pandemic will end.
