The Social Security System (SSS) named the Philippine National Bank (PNB) as one of this year’s recipients of the SSS Balikat ng Bayan Special Citation as an SSS paying commercial bank during the awarding ceremonies held last September 18 at the Ramon Magsaysay Hall of the SSS main office in Diliman, Quezon City. PNB was lauded for its consistent delivery of services to a huge number of SSS pensioners and employers, as well as for its wide network of branches that disburse SSS benefits.
In 2007, PNB was elevated to the SSS Balikat ng Bayan Hall of Fame after winning as Best Paying Commercial Bank for five straight years. Over 650,000 pensioners, about one-third of the total number of SSS pensioners, receive their SSS pensions through their PNB accounts every month. As of 2014, PNB has 656 branches and 849 automated teller machines all over the country, as well as 77 branches and offices overseas.
