  1. Hi Leslie, opinion ko lang ito ha. If the ship is based and registered in the Philippines (domestic vessels), then yes, all eligible women employees are covered by this Special Leave benefit. But if the seafarer works for an international vessel, it is the POEA contract that is being implemented. I read the POEA 2010 “Amended Standard Terms and Conditions Governing the Overseas Employment of Filipino Seafarers On-Board Ocean-Going Ships” and this Special Leave for women was not mentioned. I see only the payment of SSS, Pag-ibig, Philhealth contributions, the 2.5 days per month leave and shore leave. But there are employer-coverages for work-related surgeries. I saw in their list two conditions that could be gynecological: prolapse of the uterus and loss of one breast. There can be cases of emergency gynecological surgeries while a seafarer is currently employed and on-board that can be covered by the employer, depending on the decision of the ship physician and the contract.

  2. Hi Ms.Nora, naoperahan po ako due to endometriosis last feb 9 lang po. Di po ako familiar sa lahat ng benefits na pwede ko makuha although working naman na po ako. Sinabhan lang po ako ng isa kong kawork tungkol sa magna carta benefit for women. Nabasa ko po pwede sya maclaim ksabay ng sss sickness benefit dba po? Nung tumawag po kasi ako sa HR namin ang sabi nila is may form ako fillup then ung mga required docs from the hospital. Separate pa po ba ang filing ko nun or isa nalang po since iceclaim ko sila ng sabay dto sa operation ko po? Ano pa po ba ang alam nyo po na pwede ako mkaclaim malaki po kasi ang nabayaran ko sa hospital kasi hindi nacover lahat ng health card namin at philhealth so naghahanap ako ng ways na makaclaim para makabayad dun sa mga nahiraman ko sa nagastos ko sa ospital thank you po sa makakasagot sakin.

  3. Hi Kristine, yes, separate sets of documents ang i-submit mo sa HR nio, kasi yong para sa SSS, ifa-file sa SSS. Yong sa Magna Carta mo, ask your HR kung puedeng photocopies para hindi ka na gagastos for original copies. About other benefits, wala na akong alam na iba, except kung merong health/hospitalization insurance or other organizations kung member ka.
