SANTO DOMINGO.- Dominican Republic’s Social Security Treasury (TSS) posted a record RD$4.8 billion revenue to May, from 51,000 employers payment notifications in the contributive system, and now totals RD$237.3 billion (US$6.1 billion).
The TSS said it’s the highest monthly figure since the start of collections in June 2003, with RD$128.9 billion in pension insurance, RD$92.6 billion health insurance and RD$13.6 billion labor insurance. “This shows the confidence of workers and employers in the transparent management of resources they pay into the Dominican Social Security System through this institution.”
"We share this achievement with the National Social Security Council, the Superintendence of Health and Pensions and the Department of Defense and Information of Affiliates (DIDA), with whose help we could achieve goals that show the progress of the Dominican Social Security System in the nine years since the start of operations," said TSS treasurer Henry Sadhala in a statement.
For 2012 the Social Security Treasury has set the revenue goal of RD$54.0 billion "a figure which though optimistic, we’re confident it can be achieved with the support of all."
