GSIS Catbalogan transfers to a new building

On October 17, 2014, Catbalogan City branch of Government Service Insurance System (GSIS) transfers to a new building formerly occupied by Landbank Philippines beside Zenco Footstep situated at Del Rosario Street.

Present during the said ribbon-cutting was no less than GSIS’s President and General Manager Robert G. Vergara and was assisted by City Mayor Stephany Uy-Tan.

The GSIS is created by Commonwealth Act No. 186 that was passed on November 14, 1936, and later amended under Republic Act No. 8291 dated June 24, 1997. GSIS, as designed in its charter, is a social insurance institution under a defined benefit scheme. It insures its members against the occurrence of certain contingencies in exchange for their monthly premium contributions.

The GSIS Branch in Catbalogan City is the lone branch catering to the whole Province of Samar for both 1st and 2nd districts.
