From Loss To Law

Mothers dream to see her children grow up to be self-sufficient and financially stable. But how do we guarantee their security, when quality education grows more expensive every year, and more and more parents are forced to drop their children from school due to a lack of necessary funds?

In 1997, this precise challenge hit Ms. Monserrat V. Delos Reyes. After leaving her job in the medical field as a nurse, she was unsure if she could afford to pay the tuition fees of her children.
“It was a difficult time,” Delos Reyes narrated. “I was constantly worried about our expenses, most of all how I could possibly pay for the schooling of my kids.”
Fortunately, Delos Reyes found a highly rewarding career as a financial advisor for Philam Life. With full belief in both the products she was selling and company providing them, she bought an education plan with a very specific purpose in mind. “My daughter Regine always dreamt of studying in De La Salle University and becoming a lawyer,” Delos Reyes explained. “I wanted to secure my daughter’s future, regardless of whatever unexpected turns life would throw at me,” she enthused.


In 2007, Monserrat’s investment was fully returned, and Regine was able to take up a degree in Economics at De La Salle University. She continued to receive checks twice a year from Philam Life, which were able to pay for three trimesters’ worth of Regine’s tuition every year. Since Regine’s course took only three years to complete, Delos Reyes was able to use the fourth year of her educational plan payout to cover other family expenses.
“It felt like a huge weight was lifted off of my shoulders. I had the peace of mind that Regine’s education was taken care of and assured by Philam Life. I couldn’t be happier with my choice of investment,” the proud mother beamed. 
Regine was then able to go to law school, again at De La Salle University. She recently graduated as the top 4 student in her class, and will be taking the Bar exam in November. She aspires to specialize in family law and join one of the largest law firms in the country.

Forti-D: Your Daily Dose of Vitamin D

Are you Vitamin D deficient? Just few weeks ago, I attended an event that talks about Vitamin D deficiency, then I realized it's not something we usually monitor. We go to the clinic for the regular physical examination which includes CBC, Blood Chemistry, Cholesterol check up, X-ray but have you ever had a check-up of your Vitamin D level?


Silent epidemic spreads: 3 out of 5 Filipinos suffer from Vit-D deficiency. Are you one of them? An expert in the field of occupational medicine has revealed that an increasing number of office workers in Metro Manila are becoming vitamin D-deficient because of their lifestyle habits.


Cases of vitamin D deficiency in the country are increasing due to lifestyle that most of us have.
