The reminder is especially true to those OFWs who have come home this Yuletide season and will now return to their respective employments abroad. Known as the Balik Manggagawa (BMs), these OFWs are those who will return to the same employers in the same jobsite overseas. They were those who spent their annual vacation leave here in their home country in time for the Christmas season.
The membership premium for the month of January 2018 is at P1,261.25. This is the current equivalent of the 25USD membership fee that is valid for 24 months.
The same amount also applies to the new hires, and those who have transferred to new employers abroad.
“We call on our inactive members to renew their membership. This is to keep their status as active OWWA members, thus according them with the various services and benefits,” said OWWA Regional Welfare Office I (RWOI) OIC Dir. Sergio B. Borgueta Jr. “This is very timely, especially now that the OWWA has expanded and enhanced its programs and services to its active members.”, he added.
