Aurora Cruz Ignacio

President Rodrigo Duterte appointed Aurora Cruz-Ignacio as new president and chief executive officer (CEO) of Social Security System (SSS).

Duterte signed the appointment papers of Cruz-Ignacio last March 28, a day before the start of election ban in appointing government officials.

Cruz-Ignacio replaces former SSS president/CEO Emmanuel Dooc, who resigned last March 6.

Before her appointment to SSS helm, Cruz-Ignacio was Assistant Secretary at the Office of the President and designated as “focal person” to clarify issues against Duterte administration’s anti-illegal drugs campaign.
