EMPOWERING MEMBERS
AND PENSIONERS

Over the past five years, the conduct of face-to-face dialogues and consultations has invariably become
the main avenue through which GSIS engages its stakeholders. The insights gained from listening to our
members concerns served as vital inputs in determining Board priorities in reforming the System to provide
more responsive service. Moreover, through these dialogues, the System has engaged the widest cross-
section of its membership.

In 2015 alone, GSIS conducted a total of 92 consultations (approximately two dialogues every week)
attended by over 25,000 stakeholders. This is more than double the target of 42 dialogues for the year under
the GSIS Performance Scorecard. In fact, the dialogue in Bulacan on June 22, 2015 was attended by a
record 2,500 public servants.

GSIS sustained its efforts to reach out to delinquent agencies to settle their premium arrears by signing either a
memorandum of agreement (MOA) or memorandum of understanding (MOU). As of 2015, only 76 agencies remained

The System also upgraded its telecommunication lines and acquired additional bandwidth for its branch offices, particularly
those in remote areas, to expedite the processing of claims and benefits. Expanding the bandwidth provided fast and
reliable wide area network connections, increased GSIS employees productivity, and improved data sharing, resulting in
shorter processing period for claims and benefits.

Through these various initiatives, GSIS improved its posting efficiency from 83.5% in 2010 to 96.5% in 2015. The amount
of unposted premium payments was also reduced to Php2.7 billion by end of 2015 from Php2.9 billion the prior year.

year ago. Total assets meanwhile further increased to Php958.20 billion, up by 5.62% from Php907.22 billion in 2014. The
increased assets of GSIS resulted in consistently lengthened fund life from 33 years (or until 2042) in 2009 to 34 years in
2015 (or until 2049). Our financial situation remained strong with cash position of Php38.97 billion at year-end.

GSISs loan portfolio grew by 8.87% from Php217.97 billion in 2014 to Php237.30 billion in 2015. This growth was largely
attributed to the implementation of the enhanced GSIS Enhanced Conso-Loan Plus Program. Some of the enhancements
include term extension from 6 to 10 years; increase in maximum loan amount; and amending the due date of the first
monthly amortization to remove the three-month grace period.

In the area of benefits, the System released over Php85.94 billion in claims, 3% higher than the prior years Php83.28
billion. Social insurance claims and benefits increased in 2015 primarily due to the granting of one-time benefit in
September 2015 for regular old-age and disability pensioners in the amount of Php2.3 billion. Moreover, GSIS approved
additional benefits, including the increase in the amount of funeral benefits from Php20,000 to Php30,000, and the grant of
Milestone Benefits to regular old-age and disability pensioners, excluding pensioners under RA No. 7699 (Portability Law),

At the same time, more than 1.4 million active members were granted a cash benefit (cash dividend) of Php185 million in
2015, lower than the previous years Php848 million, due to the decline in GSISs net income.

The System continued to be prudent in its administrative and operational expenses, which remained at single-digit levels
over the past five years, from 5.9% of total revenues in 2010 to nearly 4% in 2015, significantly below the prescribed
threshold of 12%.

INSURING GOVERNMENT PROPERTIES


In line with its mandate of insuring government properties,
GSIS released a total of Php874.5 million in claims paid to
various government offices in 2015. The top three claims RI Savings (vs 2010)
included the Bureau of Customs (Php230 million), the Land
Bank of the Philippines (Php49 million), and the Power
Sector Assets and Liabilities Management Corporation 672.12M
(Php45.8 million).
600.46M 598.72M
Further, GSIS insured more than half or 1,219 of 2,197
government offices in the country in 2015, triple the number
in 2014 and the highest posted since 2012. The Philippine
Coast Guard, the Philippine Navy Headquarters, and the
406.25M 414.07M
Commission on Elections led the three newly insured
government offices that paid the highest premiums. The
Civil Aviation Authority of the Philippines, which insured
its property a month before typhoon Yolanda struck in
November 2013, insured 49 additional airports, bringing
the total to 69. Over the four-year period from 2011 to 2015,
when GSIS conducted competitive bidding for reinsurance,
cumulative savings of more than Php2 billion have been
realized compared to 2010 premium levels.

LETTER TO THE AUDITOR

PASEGURUHAN NG MGA NAGLILINGKOD SA PAMAHALAAN


(GOVERNMENT SERVICE INSURANCE SYSTEM)
Financial Center, Pasay City, Metro Manila 1308

25 May 2016

HON. MICHAEL G. AGUINALDO


Chairperson
Commission on Audit (COA)
Commonwealth Avenue, Quezon City

Dear Chairperson Aguinaldo:

We are providing this letter in connection with your audit of the Government Service Insurance System
(GSIS) for the purpose of expressing an opinion as to whether the financial statements present fairly, in
all material respects, the financial position of the GSIS as at December 31, 2015 and 2014, and its
financial performance and cash flows for the years then ended in conformity with Philippine Financial
Reporting Standards (PFRS).

We understand that your audit was conducted in accordance with Philippine Public Sector Standards on
Auditing, which involves an examination of the accounting system, internal control and related data to
the extent you considered necessary in the circumstances, and is not designed to identify nor necessarily
be expected to disclose fraud, shortages, errors and other irregularities, should any exist.

Certain representations in this letter are described as being limited to matters that are material. Items
are considered material, regardless of size, if they involve an omission or misstatement of accounting
information that, in the light of surrounding circumstances, makes it probable that the judgment of a
reasonable person relying on the information would be changed or influenced by the omission or
misstatement.

Accordingly, we confirm, to the best of our knowledge and belief, as at May 25, 2016, the following
representations made to you during your audit:

A. Financial Statements and Financial Records


1. We acknowledge, as members of management of the GSIS, our responsibility for
the fair presentation of the financial statements. We believe the financial statements
referred to above present fairly, in all material respects, the financial position, financial
performance and cash flows of the GSIS in accordance with PFRS, and are free of
material misstatements, including omissions.
We have approved and authorized for issue the financial statements on 25 May
2016.

36 GSIS Annual Report


2. The significant accounting policies adopted in the preparation of the financial
statements are appropriately described in the Notes to the Financial Statements.

3. Each element of the financial statements is properly classified, described and disclosed
in accordance with PFRS.

4. We believe that the GSIS has a system of internal controls adequate to ensure that
transactions are properly authorized and recorded; assets are safeguarded against
unauthorized use or disposition and financial statements are accurately prepared in
accordance with PFRS.

B. Accounts for Clearing


As disclosed in the Notes to the Financial Statements, premiums and loans receivables are
presented net of the P2.697 billion accounts for clearing to reflect the most conservative
balance of the account. Accounts for clearing represent accumulated collections on both
premiums and loans which have yet to be posted to the individual members accounts
due to timing differences. These unposted payments are mostly remittances for: a) new
members whose personal data have not yet been submitted by the remitting agency to
GSIS and as such are not yet included in the GSIS database, and b) existing members
whose data updates have yet to be submitted to GSIS by their respective agencies (usually
pertains to salary increases due to promotion or salary adjustments).

The net balance of P2.697 billion in 2015 and P2.893 billion in 2014 of the Accounts
for Clearing is only 0.99% and 1.15%, respectively, of the P272.770 billion and
P252.453 billion Net Premiums and Loans Receivable as at December 31, 2015 and
2014 and 0.28% and 0.32%, respectively, of the P958.200 billion and P907.223
billion Total Assets as at December 31, 2015 and 2014.

Managements untiring and steadfast efforts to bring down and maintain the accounts
for clearing at a manageable level have been successful. Since 2011, various system
enhancements were implemented to improve the defined rules of posting and clearing
on a massive approach. These enhancements aimed to minimize, if not totally prevent,
the accumulation of accounts for clearing which was significantly reduced from P11.158
billion in 2011 to P2.697 billion in 2015. The GSIS has come to a point where the
transactions which comprise the remaining balance have to be scrutinized one by one.
This means having to go through every hundred or thousand peso remittance in prior
periods to make sure that the payment is posted to the correct individual member account.

Currently, 98% of the average P9.750 billion monthly remittances received from
government agencies are posted to the members accounts immediately. The remaining
balance of the accounts for clearing is due mainly to the delay in the submission by the
agencies of the changes in the membership data of their employees resulting to a gap
between the time the open item is created and the posting of payment.

To ensure that the members receive the correct amount of benefits and/or loan proceeds,
members accounts are reconciled manually upon filing of retirement/life insurance claims
or loan applications.

C. GSIS Family Bank (GFB)


On May 13, 2016, the Monetary Board of the Philippines issued Resolution No. 826
placing GFB which is 99.57% owned by GSIS, under receivership with the Philippine
Deposit Insurance Corporation (PDIC). To date, GSIS is providing the necessary assistance
to PDIC in evaluating third party interest for the possible rehabilitation of GFB.

As at December 31, 2015 and 2014, the balance of GSIS investments in GFB was
P15.648 million and P51.325 million, respectively, or 0.00163% and 0.00566% of the
P958.200 billion and P907.223 billion total GSIS assets. Due to the immateriality of the
amount, the account was reclassified from investment in subsidiary to other assets and no
longer consolidated, based on the following principles:

GSIS Annual Report 37


1. The Conceptual Framework for Financial Reporting, adopted by the Philippine
Financial Reporting Standards Council, carries forward the notion of materiality under
the element of relevance, one of two fundamental qualitative characteristics of useful
financial information. Materiality is an entity-specific aspect of relevance based on the
nature or magnitude of items to which the information relates.

2. The revised and redrafted Materiality in Planning and Performing an Audit (Philippine
Standard on Auditing 320), provides that:

a) Misstatements, including omissions, are considered to be material if they,


individually or in the aggregate, could reasonably be expected to influence the
economic decisions of users taken on the basis of the financial statements;

b) Judgments about materiality are made in light of surrounding circumstances, and
are affected by the size or nature of a misstatement, or a combination of both; and

c) Judgments about matters that are material to users of the financial statements are
based on a consideration of the common financial information needs of users as
a group. The possible effect of misstatements on specific individual users, whose
needs may vary widely, is not considered.

D. Fraud and Error


1. We acknowledge that we are responsible for the design and implementation of
internal controls to prevent and detect error. The management, likewise, discloses to the
GSIS Audit Committee and to the COA Supervising Auditor, all significant deficiencies
in the design and material weaknesses in the operation of internal controls that could
adversely affect its ability to record, process, and report financial data.

2. We have no knowledge of any fraud or suspected fraud that affects the GSIS financial
statements and involves:

o Management;
o Employees who have significant roles in internal controls; or
o Others where the fraud could have a material effect on the financial statements.

3. We believe that the effects of any unadjusted audit differences accumulated by you
during the current audit are immaterial, both individually and in the aggregate, to the
financial statements taken as a whole.

E. Compliance with Laws and Regulations


1. We are unaware of any violations or possible violation of laws or regulations the
effects of which should be considered for disclosure in the financial statements or as
basis of recording a contingent loss.

2. We are unaware of any known or probable instances of non-compliance with the


requirements of regulatory or governmental authorities, including their financial
reporting requirements, and there have been no communications from regulatory
agencies or government representatives concerning investigations or allegations
of non-compliance for the year under review, except as matters of routine, normal,
recurring nature, none of which involves any allegations of non-compliance with laws
or regulations that should be considered for disclosure in the financial statements or a
basis for recording a loss contingency.

38 GSIS Annual Report


F. Information Provided and Completeness of Information
and Transactions
1. We have provided you with:

a. Access to all information of which we are aware is relevant to the preparation of


the financial statements, such as records, documentation and other matters;
b. Additional information that you have requested from us for the purpose of the audit;
and
c. Unrestricted access to persons within GSIS from whom you determined it necessary
to obtain audit evidence.

2. All transactions have been recorded in the accounting records and are reflected in the
financial statements. There are no material transactions that have not been properly
recorded in the accounting records underlying the financial statements.

3. We have disclosed to you all tax opinions, correspondence with tax authorities, or
other appropriate information that served as support for the accounting of potentially
material matters.

4. We confirm that we have disclosed all known related party relationships and related
party transactions as well as related balances due to or from such parties at year-end.
These transactions have been measured and disclosed in the financial statements.

G. Recognition, Measurement and Disclosure


1. We believe that the significant assumptions underlying the fair value measurements
and disclosures used in the preparation of the financial statements are reasonable and
appropriate in the circumstances.

2. We have disclosed, and the GSIS has complied with, all aspects of contractual
agreements that could have a material effect on the event of non-compliance, including
all covenants, conditions or other requirements of all outstanding obligations.

H. Liabilities and Contingencies


All liabilities and contingencies have been disclosed to you and are appropriately
reflected in the financial statements.

To the best of our knowledge and belief, no other events have occurred subsequent to the reporting date
and through the date of this letter that would require adjustment to or additional disclosure in the afore-
mentioned financial statements.

Very truly yours,

ROBERT G. VERGARA HILCONEDA P. ABRIL

INDEPENDENT AUDITORS REPORT

Republic of the Philippines


COMMISSION ON AUDIT
Commonwealth Avenue, Quezon City

The Board of Trustees


Government Service Insurance System
Financial Center, Pasay City

Report on the Financial Statements

We have audited the accompanying financial statements of the Government Service Insurance
System (GSIS), which comprise the statements of financial position as at December 31, 2015
and 2014 and the statements of comprehensive income, statements of changes in net worth
and statements of cash flows for the years then ended, and a summary of significant account-
ing policies and other explanatory information.

Managements Responsibility for the Financial Statements

Management is responsible for the preparation and fair presentation of these financial state-
ments in accordance with Philippine Financial Reporting Standards, and for such internal con-
trol as management determines is necessary to enable the preparation of financial statements
that are free from material misstatement, whether due to fraud or error.

Auditors Responsibility

Our responsibility is to express an opinion on these financial statements based on our audits.
We conducted our audits in accordance with Philippine Public Sector Standards on Auditing.
Those standards require that we comply with ethical requirements and plan and perform the
audit to obtain reasonable assurance about whether the financial statements are free from
material misstatement.

An audit involves performing procedures to obtain audit evidence about the amounts and
disclosures in the financial statements. The procedures selected depend on the auditors judg-
ment including the assessment of the risks of material misstatement of the financial statements,
whether due to fraud or error. In making those risk assessments, the auditor considers internal
control relevant to the entitys preparation and fair presentation of the financial statements in
order to design audit procedures that are appropriate in the circumstances, but not for the pur-
pose of expressing an opinion on the effectiveness of the entitys internal control. An audit also
includes evaluating the appropriateness of accounting policies used and the reasonableness of
accounting estimates made by management, as well as evaluating the overall presentation of
the financial statements.

40 GSIS Annual Report


We believe that the audit evidence we have obtained is sufficient and appropriate to provide
a basis for our audit opinion.

Opinion

In our opinion, the financial statements present fairly, in all material respects, the financial
position of GSIS as at December 31, 2015 and 2014, and its financial performance and
its cash flows for the years then ended in accordance with Philippine Financial Reporting
Standards.

Emphasis of Matter

We, however, emphasize without qualifying our opinion, Note 7.4 to financial statements on
the Accounts for clearing net balance of P2.697 billion in 2015 and P2.893 billion in 2014
representing unposted collections of premiums and loans that have not yet been posted to the
individual members accounts and are presented as a deduction from the total Premiums and
loans receivable account. The unposted collections affect the accuracy of members privileges,
claims, and the validity of the affected subsidiary ledger accounts as of statement of financial
position date. The reconciliation of the general and subsidiary ledgers is on-going to ensure
that the members receive the correct amount of benefits and/or loan proceeds upon filing of
retirement/life insurance claims, loan application or upon request of those concerned.

We also draw attention to Notes 12.2 and 30.2 to financial statements on the reclassification
of the Systems 99.57 per cent ownership in the GSIS Family Bank amounting to P15.648
million and P51.325 million as at December 31, 2015 and 2014, respectively, to Other
assets account and no longer consolidated its financial statements due to the immateriality of
the amounts.

Report on the Supplementary Information Required Under Revenue Regulations 19-2011


and 15-2010

Our audits were conducted for the purpose of forming an opinion on the basic financial
statements taken as a whole. The supplementary information in Note 33 required under
Revenue Regulations 15-2010 and 19-2011 to the financial statements is presented for
purposes of filing with the Bureau of Internal Revenue and is not a required part of the basic
financial statements. Such supplementary information is the responsibility of management.
The information has been subjected to auditing procedures applied in our audit of the basic
financial statements. In our opinion, the supplementary information is fairly presented in all
material respects, in relation to the basic financial statements taken as a whole.
