The Social Security System (SSS) has tied up with three major subdivisions in Cainta as part of its “Oplan Kasambahay” program for household employees such as maids and drivers. With the help of homeowners associations, residents of Vista Verde, New St. Francis Village and Cainta Greenland received SSS flyers along with their villageĆ­s monthly billing statements and newsletters. Household employees are under mandatory SSS coverage as provided by the Social Security Law. Vista Verde, which accounts for about 2,800 household members, is the largest among CaintaĆ­s 57 subdivisions.
