PAGADIAN CITY, June 4 -- The Government Service Insurance System (GSIS) treated pensioners to a day of free blood typing, blood pressure screening, massage, manicure, pedicure, and haircut on May 31 as part of its 76th Anniversary celebration with the theme “Trending at 76.”

The activity dubbed “GSIS Pensioners’ Day,” also provided an opportunity for pensioners to learn about acupressure, an alternative therapy that uses manual pressure.

In a brief program, Atty. Edwin M. Tomon said that with the new direction that the GSIS is headed under the management of President and General Manager Robert G. Vergara together with its Board of Directors, GSIS continues in its pursuit for a highly professionalized bureaucracy and thus providing excellent service to its clientele.

He said with the GSIS’ new battlecry, “Maaasahan ng Lingkod Bayan,” new initiatives are in place paving the way for a more consultative, more transparent and more member-focused institution.

“Being member-focused, it means, member above all, and member includes pensioners,” Atty. Tomon said.

Engr. Alberto Y. Galicinao, a retiree for a couple of years and Dr. Emma R. Sanson who retired barely nine months ago gave inspiring messages to the pensioners and shared their life after retirement.(ALT-PIA9/Zambo Sur)
