ECC and SSS Agree on Prescribed Process Cycle Time for EC claims

ECC Director Stella Banawis (Center) discusses claims and benefits of workers who met an accident while performing their duties.

The Employees Compensation Commission (ECC), with its mandate to initiate, rationalize, and coordinate the policies of the Employees’ Compensation Program (ECP), has recently issued a board resolution approving the process cycle time for the processing of Employees Compensation (EC) claims at its administering agency for the private sector, the Social Security System (SSS).

ECC Executive Director Stella Zipagan-Banawis said that the Board Resolution was issued after the ECC and the SSS agreed to strengthen its coordination on the evaluation and processing of EC claims for a more effective and efficient implementation of the ECP.

“It is also in accordance with the ECC’s Performance Agreement with the Governance Commission for GOCCs for 2015 wherein we committed to establish a service level agreement with the SSS  in order to mutually agree on a most viable process cycle time for the evaluation of EC claims,” Banawis added.

For the private sector, the ECC and the SSS agree on the following process cycle time in the evaluation of EC claims as embodied under Board Resolution 15-11-48 for Temporary Total Disability (TTD), 5 working days; Permanent Partial Disability (PPD) and Permanent Total Disability (PTD) claim, 23 working days; EC medical reimbursement, 25 working days; payment for Rehabilitation Services, 12 working days; for Funeral benefit, 5 working days; and for Death Pension, 33 working days.

The counting of the abovementioned process cycle time starts from the day that all required documents are submitted up to the release of benefits.

Furthermore, the ECC shall develop a mechanism to monitor compliance to the agreed process cycle time.

“The prescribed process cycle time will benefit persons with work-related disabilities (PWRD) through a quicker and definite timetable in the evaluation of their claims,” Banawis added. (VerGarciaBlogs)
