Benefits and Services for OWWA Member-OFWs









Matagal na akong naghahanap ng impormasyon tungkol sa benefits ng OWWA pero madalas nakakalimutan ko kapag nakaharap na ako sa computer until me kaibigan akong naaksidente. Kung hindi pa ako tinawagan ng isa pa naming kaibigan na nagfollow up kung nakontak ko na ang POLO-OWWA officer ay hindi ko pa maalala ulit.

Though wala akong nakuhang info if may makukuha sya sa OWWA patungkol sa aksidente niya, itong nakuha kong info ay worth pa din i share.


Ito ang link ng source ng info na ito:


An OWWA member-OFW is entitled to services and benefits over and above the provisions of the employment contract offer of employers or the laws of the receiving country.

I will be posting more once I get some information from our POLO officer dito sa Korea.


Lahat ng mapipiga nating info ay ating ilalathala para mapakinabangan natin dahil ang pagkakaalam ko ay pinipilit nilang maisaayos ang buhay ng isang OFW pag uwi natin sa Pinas.


Kung me mga maidadagdag kayo, icomment niyo nalang po para din mas marami ang makaalam.
