The Employees’ Compensation Commission (ECC) recently granted cash assistance to the two survivors and bereaved families of the two workers who died in a landslide incident in Barangay Kaybagal Central, Tagaytay.

The said incident left six construction workers dead and two others wounded after a concrete wall had collapsed on the victims’ barracks at night in Tagaytay on July 11, 2022.

Following the incident, ECC, thru its Regional Extension Unit 4A, immediately reached out to the victims to inform them of the benefits under the EC Program and to facilitate the processing of their benefits.

Each of the survivors received ₱10,000.00 while the dependents of the deceased workers received ₱15,000.

The families of the four other victims will also receive the same benefit from the ECC.

The EC Program provides benefits to workers or their beneficiaries in event of work-related sickness, injuries or death.
