Covid-19 Cash Assistance

Requested from ECC by Y. MATABALAN at 03:09 PM on May 17, 2022.
Purpose: How to avail of Covid-19 Cash Assistance from ECC
Date of Coverage: 05/17/2022 - 05/17/2022
Tracking no: #ECC-972323681433

MATABALAN 03:09 PM, May 17, 2022

Good afternoon.  
I tested positive for the Covid-19 virus last October 03, 2022. Thru our office, I applied for cash assistance from the Social Security System (SSS) and the Employees' Compensation Commission (ECC) thru the SSS both of which were approved by SSS. But only the SSS portion was processed and paid by the office due to failure to access ECC application online. 

It has been six (6) months since SSS paid us. What should we do to be able to claim the ECC cash assistance? Your immediate reply is most appreciated.

Thank you and kindest regards.
