SOCIAL SECURITY SERVICE TRAINING PROGRAM (SSSTP) FOR STUDENTS

The Philippine Social Security System announces its new program: 100 DAYS OF TRAINING FOR STUDENTS. According to SSS, 133 branches across the country will hire four students who will receive hands-on training on SSS operations between April 12 and August 31. Each student will receive up to 400 hours of training and will receiving an allowance of 45 pesos per hour.


This program will replace SSS’s former training program called Summer Social Security Services Training Program (4STP). The goal of this new program is to help students be productive by giving them opportunity to save money for their school expenses while having training. This will also boost public awareness with regards to the importance of SSS.

Requirements

The student applicant should submit the application form between March 26 and April 6 with the latest school registration form, two 1.5x1.5 ID pictures and documents showing their age, academic rating and family income. The student applicant should also pass his/her subjects from the previous school term to qualify. Also, the SSSTP are only for those students whose monthly family income is less than 10,000 pesos.


SSSTP is now part of SSS’s yearly activity and according to SSS’s Chief Executive Officer Romulo Neri, they will do this twice a year. So if ever you missed the deadline of submission of applications, you can try again later this year.

For the official announcement of SSS and to download the application form, please see this article from www.sss.gov.ph.

FREE Calls to Your Favorite Fast-food Chain on Globe Phones

In the age of mobile apps and ordering via internet, people are increasingly going from "calling" to "tapping and clicking" their fast food orders. The arrival of Honestbee, Foodpanda and just recently, Grab Food is a testament to how much this trend is growing. The visual effect these apps provide has a huge advantage over voice only "call".



In an apparent attempt to pull back some users in using the hotlines, Jollibee Group teams up with Globe Telecoms to allow free calls on their Globe handset to order from their favorite fastfood. Yes, even without a load, you can make a call to the Hotlines. Here's the promotional poster.

How Much Does a MRI Scan Costs in the Philippines?

My dad recently needs to have a Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) scan for his prostate problem. So I made a little research on how much does it cost to have one. Well, turns out, it depends on many factors such as which part of the body is to be scanned. There's also this technique called "MRI with contrast" wherein the patient will be injected with a chemical to make the scan clearer. For your information this technique of adding contrast is know as Gadolinium Contrast Medium. It adds cost to the procedure but with more clarity, the more you can trust the diagnosis.

So, in my father's case, we had a Prostate MRI and I assume it's without contrast since he was never injected with the "contrast" chemicals. We got it in i-Scan Healthcare Inc here in Quezon City. The cost is 13000 Pesos. Please take not that the amount was just for the scan and the result will be read by a separate professional. Some laboratories offer this service (i.e. the reading) and t…

SCAM: My First Scam Text This Year; 850000 Pesos from GMA Kapuso Foundation

It's a brand new year for everyone, including local scammers. And despite all the efforts by PLDT and Globe Telecom to curb text message scammers, from time to time, they still creep out and show up in our inboxes. And as hard to believe as the messages of winning some great amounts of money is the fact that there are still people who believe them. I personally know someone and that scam text message triggered events that turn her life upside down. So my point is, we still need to be careful regarding these scam messages. The danger is real!


So without further ado, here's the scam message I received a few days ago. On Sunday, January 7, 2018 at exactly 3:33PM (PH time), I received this message from a certain Atty. Jhon Acosta with phone number 09552962911
