Benítez Chacón also added that “at the moment the Corporation has no current debt with the Electric Power Authority.” He explained that they are “in a review process for a billing that was made to us that corresponds to the period that we were without electricity service after the passage of Hurricane María, which represents a debt of over a million dollars as reported in the press. last week”.
In the same way, the head of the CFSE reported that the Corporation also made a payment of 25 million dollars to the Administration of Retirement Systems, for the payment of its pensioners. “Ordinarily, the CFSE issues payments as the invoices arrive from Retirement, taking into account that these invoices do not always arrive on time, we want our pensioners to have the peace of mind that we are awaiting their retirement.”
“Our commitment has always been to keep all our accounts up to date, and issue the corresponding payments so that we can continue to provide the excellent service that our Corporation offers daily to the injured and employers who visit us,” concluded Benitez Chacón.
