GSIS temporarily closed after employees tested positive for COVID-19

The Government Service Insurance System  (GSIS) head office in Pasay City and its branch office in Quezon City will be closed from Monday to Wednesday this week (July 27-29) after several  of its personnel tested positive for COVID-19.

“We need to temporarily close GSIS to the public to ensure the health and safety of our visiting clients and employees. We are now thoroughly disinfecting the two offices as well as conducting contact tracing and monitoring of employees who tested positive for the virus,”  GSIS President and General Manager Rolando Ledesma Macasaet said.

“Despite the closure, our employees will continue to work remotely under alternative work arrangements. Our members, pensioners  and other clients may transact with us through our online facilities for loans and claims by emailing the required documents to the designated email addresses published in our website. Pensioners may also submit the requirements for the Annual Pensioners’ Information Revalidation (APIR) via email. We will interview them through Viber, FB messenger, Skype or Zoom after we have received their requirements,” Macasaet said.
