The Government Service Insurance System (GSIS) is the Philippines government agency that handles social insurance for all government employee. Created under the Commonwealth Act Number 186. This institution was put up upon the passing of the act # 186 on November 14, 1936.

The purpose of the GSIS is to be able to provide security for the future of all government employees of the Philippines. This is done through their comprehensive pension fund administration with social security benefits such as compulsory life insurance, optional life insurance, retirement benefits, and disability benefits for work-related accidents and death benefits.

The institution also offers GSIS loans such as emergency loan, calamity loan, cash advance, conso loan, policy loan, pension loan and housing loan. Other benefits that a GSIS member may avail include burial benefit, hospitalization support and more. To know more information about this, please visit the official GSIS website at

– Contractual employees who have no employee-employer relationship with their agencies;

– Uniformed members of the Armed Forces of the Philippines and the Philippine National Police, including the Bureau of Jail Management and Penology and the Bureau of Fire Protection.

    Last March 2009, i availed of my two (2) OPTIONAL POLICY LOANS, last Nov. 2010 i submitted an updated remittances of my payments in your satellite office here in Malolos City. After a month, i verified in your office here in Malolos if my records is already updated…good that my remittance was already recorded, unfortunately it was recorded only in one of my loans, so it will appear that i have not paid any single payment in my other loan.,,(which im sure will charge me of penalties) PLEASE make the necessary correction as early as possible.

  • Jesusa M. Deposa says:

    Hello, good morning.. I would like to follow up the status of my claim regarding the amount of P11,229.18 which was dedected from my matured policy age 45 last December 4,2006. I wrote a query regarding this matter last January 9, 2007 upon seeing the tentative computation of my claim which the amount was reflected. I was told that the amount represent the PS and GS premiums from July 1997 to December 1997 allegedly unremitted by DBM to your office. In this connection I am hoping that by this time, four years had passed your records, our records and the DBM records have been reconciled already, so that I will be refunded the amount in quesstion. I hope this wil be given appropriate action. Thank you very much and more power.

  • Theresa Wall says:

    See my May 16 post. GSIS online already replied to my inquiry. They also gave me info that might help other posters. This info came in email from GSIS representative on May 24, 2011:
    1. as to date, there’s still no facility for UMID enrollment for the pensioners abroad.
    2. even for local pensioners here, there’s still no production of UMID cards.
    3. we’ll still be sending e-card plus.
    4. our GVAPS facility is temporarily deactivated
    5. renewal of status can be done only through skype video call.
    For any pensioners living abroad with any questions on these matters, here is the address I used and received very prompt response:

  • Mario M. Movillon says:

    I checked the update status of my various loans from the GSIS kiosk in Pagsanjan, Laguna. As of April 2011 inquiry which I made, the update info I got about my outstanding balance is dated April 2010, instead of 2011. Which means, more than a year na ang nakaraan, e hindi pa rin up to date and nasabing info.

    May I request GSIS Pagsanjan staff, or the central records office staff to help me find the true and most updated status of my related loans as of June 2011.

    Thanks and regards

  • Dominador G. Inovejas says:

    I am a retiree of the Philippine Nation Bank in 1996.
    When the PNB was taken over by Lucio Tan Group, I was paid about P300K by
    GSIS for my over 22 years of service when PNB was a government bank yet.
    In June 2008, I retired also from PNB now already as a private bank.
    Query: Since I served the government for over 22 years and I am now 61 years old, what benefits can I still claim out of my government service?
    Thank you.
