Based on the memorandum signed by Executive Secretary Salvador C. Medialdea, he informed the Board of the Social Security Commission on Duterte’s approval of Dooc’s nomination as president and CEO of the pension fund.

Medialdea’s memorandum was posted on Facebook by Insurance Deputy Commissioner Dennis B. Funa.

Dooc, who took the helm at the Insurance Commission in December 2010, replaced Emilio S. de Quiros Jr.

Aside from the Insurance Commission (IC), Dooc was also a member of the Anti-Money Laundering Council, which was recently slammed by Duterte for allegedly failing to do its mandate.

Prior to his appointment as IC chief, Dooc took up several posts in the Philippine American Life and General Insurance Co. (Philam Life).

Last week, the Department of Finance (DOF) ordered a probe of Dooc over a domestic steel manufacturer’s accusation that the IC allegedly engaged in “cartelized transactions” with banks and insurance companies.

But IC denied the accusation, saying the allegation was “an attempt to harass the Insurance Commission, in view of its failure to obtain a favorable ruling, or at the very least, it is barking at the wrong tree.”

    Let us hope Commissioner Dooc will fire all the political appointees of PNoy in the SSS. They were found working only to milk the SSS with their ridiculously extravagant compensation packages even if they are not qualified, just like Emilio Quiros, Jr.
