Grab Philippines, SSS, PhilHealth, Pag-IBIG launches social protection program for driver-and-delivery partners

22 November 2022, MANILA, Philippines — Grab Philippines, together with the Philippine
Health Insurance Corporation (PhilHealth), Social Security System (SSS), and Pag-IBIG
Fund–announced its Social Protection Program which helps create a stronger social safety
net for Grab drivers- and delivery partners in the Philippines, by supporting, educating, and
connecting Grab partners to various social welfare services of the government.

Grab is the first platform in the Philippines to proactively roll out a robust, multi-agency social
protection program for driver and delivery-partner welfare. This program is a result of
months-long dialogue and discussion with various government agencies, which aims to educate and connect its driver partners with the government’s various social welfare services, including but not limited to:
Grab launches more benefits for drivers and delivery partners.

● Affordable social insurance that can be used for retirement, disability, death, funeral,
sickness, maternity, and work-related contingencies for self-employed SSS members.
Availment of salary loans for active and contributing self-employed SSS members and
pension loans for retirement pensioners.
● Accessible healthcare services such as assistance with hospital bills, room, and board
subsidies, medication, and professional services exclusively offered to PhilHealth
● National savings program and affordable housing financing for qualified PAG-IBIG

This program was recently piloted in Metro Manila and will be scaled to different Grab cities and communities across the Philippines.

“Platform work has presented various benefits to many industries, and has been a valued
source of livelihood for many Filipinos. We have built a community of partners founded on trust, hard work, and a shared mission - to drive the Philippines forward, and we will continue doing right by our partners by creating stronger safety nets that they can rely on. Amidst a very tough economy, our Social Protection Program is a clear expression of our deep and long-standing commitment to the welfare and well-being of our partners, and we will continue to scale this program nationwide to help support more partners and their loved ones,” said Grab Philippines Country Head Grace Vera Cruz.

In addition to its social protection program, Grab also provides its own assistance program
exclusive to all active driver-partners. The GrabCare Package is designed to offer driver
partners additional support, which includes calamity assistance, insurance, emergency top-up,
hospital assistance, educational assistance, and burial assistance.
