Here is an Easy Guide to Comply with SSS Annual Confirmation of Pensioners Program (ACOP)

Before, the Annual Confirmation of Pensioners Program was a dreaded time for caregivers and family members of bedridden and disabled pensioners. It was because they had to endure the hard transportation of their family members who are SSS pensioners to their respective SSS branches. But now, it has been made more convenient by SSS.

The Annual Confirmation of Pensioners Program is like an audit of those who are receiving their monthly pensions. For a pensioner to continuously enjoy the eligibility of his or her pension, he or she is required to comply with this program.

 

The ACOP schedule will be the birth month of the said SSS member. If the pension is being received by the member’s beneficiaries, the ACOP schedule will be the birth month of the deceased SSS member.

Here are the ways to comply with the Annual Confirmation of Pensioners Program and ensure that your pension will not be suspended.
