Baguio City.  An orientation on Financial Literacy and various Government Service Insurance System (GSIS) programs was warmly welcomed by the Regional Conciliation and Mediation Board-Cordillera Administrative Region on September 24.

GSIS-CAR personnel Jemima Cher Verceles introduced the GSIS Financial Assistance Loan (GFAL), a newly launched program aimed to members’ quality of life by providing higher take home pay.

Ms. Maria Corazon Esteban, on the other hand, gave a detailed lecture on financial literacy. That is, stressing the difference between needs and wants and tips how to minimize loans.  She concluded her talk saying wants should be our motivation to save.

This endeavor concluded the Branch’s Civil Service Month Celebration.
