Alfred Vargas said the government should just invest money in the Social Security System to save members from higher withheld contributions amid the pandemic.

The Quezon City congressman is all for proposals to postpone the scheduled hike in SSS monthly contributions this 2021.

“As Chair of the House Committee on Social Services, we are open to helping SSS in exploring other ways to replenish their fund,” the politiko said.

“The burden shouldn’t be shouldered by its members especially during this time of pandemic,” he added.
