The Social Security System (SSS) has accredited Security Bank Corporation (SBC) as its first partner for the electronic file and fund transfer of SSS reimbursements under the Sickness and Maternity Benefit Payment Thru the Bank program.

Employers that enroll their SBC savings or current accounts with SSS will be automatically reimbursed for their workers’ benefits in as little as five days instead of waiting for up to 19 days to get SSS checks thru mail.
