Social Security Board Updates Media on Investments and Benefits
Today, the Social Security Board gathered members of the media to provide an update on its investment portfolio, benefits, and its new online portal. The event sought to sanitize the media on the importance of SSB’s investments and the benefits it provides. The statutory body has previously stated that to keep contributions from being increased, it needs to broaden its investments. The SSB has over one million dollars in liquidity and is looking for areas to invest. Chief Executive Officer Deborah Ruiz explained that so far, the board is taking steps in the right direction but needs to increase its pace.
