Government Service Insurance System


November 25-29, 2019



General Description

The GConnect shall increase stakeholders’ awareness on premium remittances. Also aims to update the members and increase collections of GSIS.

Project Background

The GSIS is a social insurance institution that provides a defined benefit scheme under the law. It insures its members against the occurrence of certain contingencies in exchange for their monthly premium contributions. GSIS members are entitled to an array of social security benefits, such as life insurance benefits, separation or retirement benefits, and disability benefits. To better improve its current services, the GSIS Innovation Team interviewed several clients in one of their service centers to come up with new and innovative solutions addressing their concerns. It was later found out that the existing eGSISmo website and GSIS communication platforms could be improved and expanded for a more responsive and seamless public service.

Moreover, the Innovation Team also faces the following challenges: limited budget, short timelines, system provider, management support. Through the analysis of the challenges of the GSIS in the processing of the annotated copy of client documents, the Innovation Team generated several ideas and insights to address the challenge:  How might we increase the awareness of GSIS members on premium remittances because we want them to be updated and be able to maximize their benefits and privileges. The team combined ideas and further processed the insights, until they came up with the GConnect: An Enhanced Customer Service Experience.
