Direct Hire Requirements

Posted by:

According to Work Abroad Safely, Direct Hire is also known as Name-hire. It means that the worker is able to secure an overseas job without the assistance or participation of any agency here in the Philippines.

In this video, HayPinas explains what a direct-hired OFW should do next after getting a job abroad . Remember: Always check with the concerned agencies for the complete requirements. Make sure that the offer is legitimate and you’ve been issued a work permit which is the same as to the position you applied for.

 

It is important to note the important numbers where OFWs abroad may seek for help should they need assistance. Check out the

List of Philippine Embassies and Philippine Consulates General and Directory.

I Forgot My SSS Number, What To Do?

Posted by:

It is inevitable. Some people tend to forget important personal data such as their SSS number. Here are some help for you to retrieve your SSS number:

  1. Firstly, do not apply for another SSS number. It will just complicate things.
  2. Go to the nearest SSS office and personally ask about your concerns.  For OFWs, SSS have branches worldwide like in Abu Dhabi, Hongkong, Brunei, Kuwait, London, Doha, Jeddah, Dubai, Milan, Riyadh, Rome, Singapore, and Taiwan.

Tip: Bring any document or documents that you think might help you recover your SSS number.

sss-deadline-payments It is a given fact that those who forgot their SSS numbers are those members who lost or haven’t obtained an SSS ID yet. If your SSS ID is lost, ask for an Affidavit of Loss, fill it out and have it notarized. Click this to find out how to apply for and/or renew your SSS ID.
