The Social Security System (SSS) bestowed a special citation on Baganga Integrated Social Action Group (BISAG) for its solid support for SSS in bringing social security protection closer to informal sector groups at the Balikat ng Bayan Awards during the SSS 59th anniversary program at the Ramon Magsaysay Hall of the SSS main office in Diliman, Quezon City on September 2.

BISAG is composed of eight informal sector groups with a total of 775 SSS members who are mostly farmers, fisherfolks, and home-based workers residing in Baganga, Davao Oriental which was among the areas devastated by Typhoon Pablo in 2012.
