Pasensya na po, hindi ko po talaga alam. Mga 25 years kasing nagpa balik balik sa Jubail yung father ko. Uuwi lang sya para magbakasyon. Hanggang sa nag ka-cancer sya at tuluyan ng umuwi dito nung 2005. Ilang months lang at binawian din sya ng buhay. Wala kaming nakuha ni isang kusing na benefits sa gobyerno except sa SSS since volunteer member sya. Ang sama ng loob ko sa OWWA, POEA at kung ano ano pang sangay ng gobyerno na nilapitan namin pero wala naman kaming napala. Kahit yung migrante hindi rin kami naasikaso. That time kasi busy-busy sila sa kabila-kabilang protesta kaya hindi rin sila makapag abot ng tulong. Wala lang, nakaka disappoint lang.

Hi gogreenexpert, I can understand your frustration kasi na-frustrate din ako sa POEA at OWWA in the case of my brod-in-law who died in his family's home in QC during his vacation last year.
 
Wala rin silang nakuha sa OWWA and sa Philhealth kahit, katulad ng sa father mo, ay ilang years ding nagbabayad sa OWWA at Philhealth. Sa brod-inlaw ko nga ay more than 30 years siya sa KSA.

Ang pangit pa ay naging "victim" siya ng 60-validity period ng OEC. Days after my brod-in-law arrived, he went to POEA Ortigas to pay his OEC for his return to KSA, pero his payment was not accepted when he mentioned he's returning after 3 months. Sayang lang daw, sabi ng POEA, kasi 60 days ang validity ng OEC. So hindi siya nakapagbayad. So when he died, hindi na updated ang kanyang OWWA at Philhealth. Walang nadeduct na Phihealth benefit sa hospital.

Ang kulang sa POEA, OWWA at Philhealth ay Information Campaign. How many OFWs know that the OWWA benefit has a short time frame?

I think OFWs all over the world need to write OWWA to disclose how much of the payment is for insurance, and how much is for membership, and how this membership fee is being used.

Dapat merong konting assistance for those who have paid for more than 20 years. Otherwise, OWWA is just an insurance collector for a private insurance company (kung sinumang insurer ang nanalo sa bidding nila).

dati na avail ko scholarship nila way back 2000 nakapag-enroll ako ng 3 months short course sa Meralco Foundation w/ matching allowance pa at napakinabangan ko naman up to now ang course na kinuha ko.

alam ko may burial benefits din sila. dapat alamin lng talaga natin kasi syang naman ang binabayad natin as OFW's. feeling ko sinasadya nila talagang hindi ipaalam ng husto sa publiko ang benefits ng OFW's kasi pagmarami ang mag avail mawawalan sila (alam nyo na kung ano yun!)   :rakenrol:

Fyi, chronic deseases are NOT covered by OWWA.

I think 50/50, tayong OFW at Govt ang may issues.

OFW di alam ang benefits ng OWWA, POEA, Philhealth

GOVT konti lng effort pra sa information drive

OFW magppmember kc required

GOVT mangongolekta kc required


Owwa benefits (aside from scholarships and trainings)


Insurance and Health-Care Program Benefits

a. Life/Accident Insurance

A member is covered with life insurance for the duration of his employment contract. The coverage includes P100,000.00 for natural death and P200,000.00 for accidental death.

b. Disability and Dismemberment Benefits

A member shall be entitled to disability/dismemberment benefits ranging from P2,000.00 to P50,000.00.

c. Total Disability Benefit

In case of total permanent disability, a member shall be entitled to P100,000.00

d. Burial Benefit

A burial benefit of P20,000.00 shall be provided in case of the member's death.


Fair enough i think, just like in my case i pay 50 Singapore dollars for 2 years or around 1600 pesos in 2 years or around 800 per year.

It is the "cheapest" insurance you can ever get.

It it is only a "BASIC" insurance so let us not depend on it.

i think OWWA doesn't work like SSS... sa OWWA covered k lng habang employed ka..unlike SSS... so let say ang isang OFW na umuwi dahil ntpos ang contract at biglang namatay, wala n xang makukuha khit burial benefits pa..OFW po ako and i think napakauseless ng benefits ng OWWA, prang insurance lng ang dating eh...kung baga eh sayang lhat ng binayad mo kung wala ka ng kontrata..

Ang silbi ng OWWA at ng POEA ay para pagkaperahan at pahirapan ang mga OFW.
Nagbabayad ako tuwing uuwi ako at tuwing magbabayad ako sinusumpa ko sila. Pahirap talaga at malaking abala.

OWWA ay pahirap lang sa mga OFW. You can get only benefits  if you are still working abroad. After that no more. Sayang yung binabayad namin. Wala kang makuha ni kusing.

I think OWWA is only valid if dun sa binayad mo. Like 1year. if hindi ka nag renew wala ka makukuha ni singkong duling.

POEA naman mahal sya pero trabaho lang nito is legit yung contrata mo at protection sa illegal recruiter. Other than that wala na

OWWA? Hindi ko ramdam ang serbisyo nila kahit na nagbabayad ako. Tama yung mga post sa itaas, kailngan nila ng magandang information drive para malaman ng lahat ang mga benepisyo dito.

Ginagawa nilang gatasan ang OFW at binobola pa at tinatawag "Bagong Bayani" samantalang hindi nga nila alam kung ano ang mga dinaranas ng mga kababayan nating OFW sa ibang bansa. Nakakalungkot pero totoo.

Nakakalungkot at nakaka inis isipin na bayad ka ng bayad pero wala ka namang nakukuhang benepisyo... Para kang ninanakawan ng walang kalaban laban.
