CAGAYAN de Oro City – The Government Service Insurance System (GSIS) Cagayan de Oro Branch has called on government agencies within the Branch’s operational jurisdiction to renew the accreditation of their respective agency liaison officers.
Application for renewal must be submitted to the GSIS, through the administrative staff of the Office of the Branch Manager, not later than February 28, this year.

Vega said documents that must be submitted should include a letter of authorization or office order from the head of office designating a particular employee of the agency as the liaison officer, properly filled-up and notarized information/designation sheet, and duly filed-up form for Enhanced Personal Accident Insurance.
