For those who are not aware, OWWA is an institution that seeks to protect the welfare and interest of Overseas Filipino Workers (OFW). Those who avail their membership can enjoy benefits like a life or accident insurance and a burial benefit.
Cacdac said that this rebate service projected to be running by the first quarter of 2018 is another initiative that they have planned last year.
“Crucial po yung magkano. Kasi we want to make sure na una hindi masyadong maliit. At pangalawa, hindi ko naman masabing hind masyadong malaki, pero yung sigurado tayong kakayanin ng pondo.“
The administration has also hired an actuarial expert to help them figure out the sustainability of such a generous service. Apart from figuring out the amount of money they would be handing out, Cacdac also stressed that another study has to be conducted to know the right mode of payment.
“There is a possibility that the members have already relocated in other places. One suggestion that we are looking into is through the banking system.”
