State-owned Insurance Commission (IC) and the Philippine Postal Corporation (PHLPost) unveiled the commemorative stamp and official first day cover in celebration of the 75th Anniversary of the Insurance Commission (IC) last January 24 to highlight this year’s theme: Serving with Integrity and Commitment: 75 years of Public Trust.
Established in 1949 through Republic Act No. 275, the IC’s principal responsibility is to regulate and supervise the insurance, pre-need, and HMO industries. This oversight aligns with the provisions of the Insurance Code, As Amended (Republic Act No. 10607), Pre-Need Code of the Philippines (Republic Act No. 9829), and Executive Order No. 192, s. 2015.
The commemorative stamp crafted for the IC’s 75th Anniversary portrays a poignant depiction of “pagpupugay,” symbolized by the deliberate placement of men’s right hands upon their chests. This gesture signifies a genuine commitment to serve with unwavering integrity and compassion.
It is a powerful emblem, representing the Insurance Commission’s profound commitment to providing continuous, high-quality, and upright public service.
The commemorative stamp also captures the developmental initiatives of the Insurance Commission in serving the Filipino people. The stamp chronicles Insurance Commission’s long and remarkable history as the country’s premier regulator in the Insurance Sector.
PHLPost has printed 35,000 copies of the stamps which are being sold at P16 each.
The stamps, souvenir sheets and official first day covers are now available at the second floor of Manila Central Post Office Annex Bldg. located at the back of the fire gutted historic structure.
