The Overseas Workers Welfare Administration (OWWA), an attached agency of the Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE), is the lead government agency tasked to protect and promote the welfare and well-being of Overseas Filipino Workers (OFWs) and their dependents.

OWWA traces its beginnings to 1 May 1977, when the Welfare and Training Fund for Overseas Workers in the Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE) was created by virtue of Letter of Instructions No. 537, with the main objective, inter alia, of providing social and welfare services to OFW, including insurance coverage, social work, legal and placement assistance, cultural and remittances services, and the like.

On 1 May 1980, Presidential Decree No. 1694 was signed into law, formalizing the operations of a comprehensive Welfare Fund (Welfund), as authorized and created under Letter of Instructions No. 537.  Presidential Decree No. 1694 further authorized that contributions to the Welfare and Training Fund collected pursuant to Letter of Instructions No. 537 be transferred to the Welfund.

On 16 January 1981, Presidential Decree No. 1809 was promulgated, amending certain provisions of Presidential Decree No. 1694.[4]  Subsequently, Executive Order No. 126 was passed which reorganized the Ministry of Labor and Employment.  Executive Order No. 126 also renamed the Welfare Fund as the OWWA.


OWWA was created through: 

A “Welfare and Training Fund For Overseas Workers” was created on 01 May 1977 in the Department of Labor through a Letter of Instruction (LOI) No. 537 signed by President Ferdinand E. Marcos. This LOI provides social and welfare services to Filipino overseas workers including insurance coverage, social work assistance, legal assistance, placement assistance, cultural services, remittance services, and the like. Sources of Funds comes from earnings and welfare fund collections from Overseas Employment Development Board (OEDB), Bureau of Employment Service (BES), National Seaman Board (NSB) and other donations, contributions.

Under Section 15 of this Act, OWWA, in coordination with appropriate agencies, shall undertake the repatriation of workers in cases of war, epidemics, disasters or calamities, natural or man-made, and other similar events without prejudice to reimbursement by the responsible principal or recruitment agency. However, in cases where the principal or recruitment agency cannot be identified, all costs attendant to repatriation shall be borne by the OWWA. For this purpose, an Emergency Repatriation Fund, initially in the amount of Php100M was created and established under the administration, control and supervision of OWWA.

  2. Sir may kilala po aqong agency na nagpapirma ng kontrata tpos pgdting sa employer nla sa saudi hnd cnusunod kung anu ang nakasaad sa kontrat.panu po ba un

    • Ang Ministry of Labor under the amended Saudi Labor Law ay may prepared employment contract or form na dapat sundin ng mga employer sa Saudi Arabia. Ngunit hindi ito nangangahulugan na magkaiba ang nilalaman katulad ng sahod, benepisyo at iba pang nakasaad sa kontratang pinirmahan ng worker sa Pilipinas at verified by the POLO office or Labor Attache.

      Kung pinupuwersa kayo na mag sign ng bagong kontrata na hindi magkatugma sa unang pinirmahan, ito ay tinatawag na contract substitution. Dapat po kayong magpunta sa Embassy or POLO office or direct to Saudi Labor office para magsampa ng reklamo laban sa inyong employer. Huwag pumirma ng bagong kontrata kung hindi ito katulad sa pinirmahan na kontrata sa Pilipinas or job offer.

    • Sa pagbasa ko sa iyong sulat comment, napaluha ako sa iyong dinanas at ma picture ko ang iyong dating kalagayan. Salamat naman sa Diyos at nakauwi ka. Ngayon, huwag kang matakot na isumbong sa POEA ang iyong amo at ang agency nito. Hindi po nila magagawa ang kanilang threat sa iyo ngayon na nasa Pinas ka na. Bago ka pumunta sa POEA legal office dumaan ka sa opisina ni POEA Board of Trustee Alexander Asuncion at e print mo or isalaysay mo ang mga naranasan mo sa iyong employer sa Singapore lalo na sa kanlang bnitawan na banta sa iyong buhay at sa iyong pamilya. Banggitin mo ang ating blog sa iyong pagbisita kay Ka Alexander Asuncion.

    • Kung tapos na ang kontrata dapat lamang po na kayo ay pauwiin kung ayaw ninyong mag renew nito. Dapat rin po na ibigay ang sweldong nakabinbin sa inyo at kargo po ng employer ang pag renew ng inyong iqama. Ngunit sabi nyo po wala pong ginawa ang employer. Ang payo ko dumulog agad sa ating POLO sa Amman at humingi ng tulong upang makauwi ka at mabayaran ang nakabinbing sahod. Ito po ang contact information sa ating POLO sa Amman.

  6. Sir,patulong po,nasa Jeddah po yung asawa ko,gusto na po nya umuwi kc nahihirapan po sya,nanlalabo daw po at kumikirot madalas ung ulo nya,tapos over po ung oras ng trabaho nya,pumasok po xa bilang waiter pero sa contract nya restaurant worker nakalAgay,pero pagdating po nya dun pinatatrabaho din po xa sa pagcoconstruction at ginagawa yung bahay at restaurant ng amo nya..nagpaalam na po sya sa amo nya pero ayaw po sya payagan,nagpunta po sila ng consulate kahapon,tapos pinabigay daw po ng consulate ung passport nya sa employer nya na ang gusto ay magbayad sya ng 2,500sr at pambili ticket nya,pano po yun san po kami kukuha e dn rin daw po nya kaya magtrabaho..san po ba kami lalapit patulong naman po!

    • Diko maintindihan, bnigay ng employer ang passport niya sa POLO? Puwdeng samphana ng kaso ang employer sa mga nilabag na batas na nakasaad sa Saudi LAbor LAw. Pero sa kanyang situwasyon na may sakit siya, hindi na po option ang pagsampa ng kaso. Makipag-coordinate ka sa agency ng iyong aasawa sa Pinas upang ayosin nag kanyang repatriation. Sabihin mo sa agency na makipag coordinate rin sa ating POLO.

      • Sabi daw po ng phil consulate sa jeddah na ibigay ng asawa ko yung passport nya sa employer nyA,kaya po hawak ngayon ng employer yung passport nya,di po nya alam kung bakit pero natatakot sya na ihold sya ang gusto po ay bayaran daw nya yung nagastos sa kanya,.yun din po sinasabi ng agency sakin..saan ko po ba pwede ito ilapit kung ayaw tumulong ng agency?

        • Sino sa Consulate ang nagsabing ibigay ang kanyang passport sa employer?

          Kung hindi niya kayang bayaran ang halagang 2,500.00 na hinihinging kabayaran ng employer dapat tulongan siya ng ating Konsulada. Kung kasalanan ng worker ang pag terminate sa kontrata dapat lamang po na ang worker ang mag shoulder sa ticket nito pauwi sa kanyang bansa. Kung walang pambili ng ticket, makipag-ugnayan sa kanyang recruitment agency sa Pilipinas.
