Duterte may announce his decision on SSS pension this pm

President Rodrigo Duterte is expected to announce this afternoon his decision on the proposed Social Security System pension hike for retirees.

A press conference is set at 4 pm in Malacañang.

The issue on the proposed P 2,000 SSS pension hike was discussed in a cabinet meeting on Monday.

The President's economic advisers earlier expressed apprehension over the issue, saying it will put the viability of the SSS at risk.

Meanwhile, at 2 pm, ambassadors from countries in Africa will pay courtesy calls to the Chief Executive.

The diplomats will be given arrival honors at the Palace before they submit their credentials.
