SSS Benefits Philippines: Social Security System Benefits

If you are under 60 and an Overseas Filipino Worker (OFW), a household worker, or an employee for any private organization, you are making monthly contributions to your Social Security System benefits account.

Find out here how to compute and access your SSS retirement benefits and the other types of benefits you may qualify for.

DISCLAIMER: I'm not affiliated with the SSS. This article shares publicly available information about SSS member's benefits. For answers to specific, individual questions visit your SSS branch or contact SSS hotlines.

The SSS: Some Basics

The SSS Retirement Benefit is an old-age pension or retirement pension. It is a lifetime cash benefit paid every month to a person 60 or older who has has retired or stopped working. Any senior Filipino can receive their monthly SSS pension, provided they have made at least 120 monthly contributions prior to the semester of their retirement. Recipients are also entitled to a "13th month pay" every December.

Filipino seniors who have not completed 120 months of contributions when they retire are entitled to receive a lump sum amount of 10% of their monthly pension benefits or P250, whichever is higher.

Below is a sample formula for how to compute your monthly pension.

Monthly Pension Computation

Monthly Pension = MP

Average Monthly Salary Credit = AMSC

Creditable Years of Service = CYS

  • MP = P300 + (20% of AMSC) + 2% of AMSC for each CYS in excess of 10 years
  • MP = 40% of the AMSC
  • MP = P1200 (if your CYS is at least 10 or more but less than 20)
  • MP = P2000 (if your CYS is 20 or more)

To calculate your MP, compute each of the above formulas. Your MP is the highest amount.


  • The AMSCand CYS are different for every employee as salaries vary over time.
  • Retirees have the option to receive the first 18 months' pension in one lump sum, minus a rate of interest calculated by the SSS.
  • The higher your SSS contribution and CYS, the higher your MP.

Can I Contribute to SSS Benefits?

If you do not work for a company or are self-employed, you can still become a member of the SSS and contribute to a benefits account. This is called a "voluntary contribution." All you have to do is:

  • Apply to become an SSS member.
  • Make monthly or quarterly contributions to your account.
  • See the SSS Contribution Table below to figure out how much to contribute based upon your income.

2015 Schedule of SSS Contributions

Other SSS Benefits: Disability, Sickness, Maternity, Death, Employee Compensation, and Loan

In addition to retirement benefits, members of the Social Security System are entitled to a range of other benefits.

  • The SSS Disability Benefit covers employees who cannot work due to partial or total disability and have paid at least one monthly contribution to the SSS before the disability took place. Disability benefits can be paid in two different ways: monthly pension or lump sum. Only members who have paid at least 36 monthly contributions to their account qualify for monthly payments. The lump sum payment is available to those tho have not paid the required 36 monthly contributions. Just like any other type of pension, the monthly cash benefit is computed based on the disabled member’s number of paid contributions and years of membership. According to SSS, the lowest monthly pension is P1000 for members with less than 10 credit years of service, P1200 for those with at least 10 CYS, and P2400 for those with at least 20 CYS.

  • The SSS Sickness Benefit is a daily cash allowance paid for the number of days a member is unable to work for a minimum of four days. Qualifying members must have paid at least three monthly contributions within the 12-month period prior to illness. In addition, all company sick leave pay for the year must have been used. SSS members are entitled to receive 90 percent of their average daily salary per day.
  • The SSS Maternity Benefit is for female members who cannot work due to recent childbirth or miscarriage. Female members who have contributed to her their accounts for three months during the past 12 months qualify for a daily cash allowance. Benefits are as follows: The member's average daily salary multiplied by 60 for a normal delivery or miscarriage or 78 for caesarean section delivery.

  • SSS Death and Funeral Benefits are available when an SSS member dies. Qualified beneficiaries and dependents (including parents) can receive death and funeral benefits. Anyone listed as a beneficiary in the member's SSS records can receive benefits, so it is important to be sure that beneficiary lists are kept current. There are two types of benefits for death and funeral: monthly pension and lump sum amount. According to the Social Security System, monthly pensions are granted only to the primary beneficiaries of a deceased member who had paid 36 monthly contributions before the semester of their death. The lump sum, on the other hand, is available to primary beneficiaries of a deceased member who had paid less than 36 monthly contributions before the semester of death. Secondary beneficiaries are entitled to a lump sum benefit. If the member was entitled to receive monthly pension benefits, their beneficiaries will receive 13th month payments in December.

  • All SSS members (employees and employers) are automatically entitled to Employee Compensation, or EC. These benefits cover temporary or permanent work-related sickness, disability, or injury.
  • SSS members may qualify for loans for home or business.

May question po ako about Sickness Benefit. I’m currently employed at nagfile po ako ng sickness benefit para sa two months na nakaleave ako due to an operation for Ovarian cyst.

Nadenied po yung claim ko at ang Remarks: FILING BEYOND THE ONE YEAR PERIOD - LATE FILING * INVALID RECORDS.

Ang confinement period ko po ay 08-09-2014 to 10-07-2014 (signed by my doctor) at nagfile ako ng claim nung 06-03-2015 (eto ung nsa claim form ko sa SSS site). I think June 3 is pasok pa rin po sa 1 year period so di ko po maintindihan kung bakit naging late .

Then ano po ang ibig sabihin ng INVALID RECORDS. Records ko po ba to sa hospital or sa SSS.

Then naiadvance na po ng company ko yung claim. Since na denied po sya kailangan ko po ba to bayaran pabalik sa company. Kasi I’m not sure na kaya kong bayaran ung 2 months claim ko.

May chance pa po ba na ma- approved tong SSS benefit claim ko?

Thank you.

I have two (2) SSS Cards having worked for two companies. In 2006 (or 2007) I found this out in Boac, Marinduque SSS office and was told that SSS will consolidate these two accounts into one and will be issued one (1) card. The records in my first job in a Spinning Mills in Marikina (for 5 years) showed different Company Name and was told by the provincial office said that they look into it by referring back to the original "Microfilm". I came back in the said office on May 2014 and still the said problem is still not verified and/or rectified. This is seven years ago and still the "problem is still a problem". I am 74 years old now and I want to have my pension that I am entitled to. If I lack some year/s of contribution - I am will to pay it as the law requires.

hi po… i just file for the death benefit claims of my father and ive been disappointed on their kind of processing. i just give them all the requirments legal identification as a primary beneficary even an authorization letter with sign of my brothers to sign any documents to sss to claim the death benefits of our father. and this are the requirments that they want me to submit to them death certificate of my father parents, marriage contract of his parents and affidavit of legal heirs(withnes nearest relatives). i dont know what is the connection of this requirments of claiming the benefits of my father kahit na kami na ung primary legal beneficiary nya and ito pa even that i have my NSO original birth certificate kylangan pa nila tingnan sa E1 ng father ko kung kami ang nakalagay na beneficiary nya and for everybody information pinbabalik nila ako ng 1 to 2months just to check the E1 at E4 of my father(what a jurrasic era). my question is ganito po ba tlaga ang pagprocess ng death benefits claim lalo ng kung legal primary dependent naman ang nagfile at my mga proof of legal documents nman e kaylangan pa po ba ng documents ng secondary benefeciary? panu po kung sa E1 0 E4 nya wla syang beneficiary kanino mapupunta ung pinaghirapan ng father ko? minsan po talaga iniisip ko kung my logic pa sila sa paghingi nila ng mga requirments... thank u and more power po

question 3 years ago

dear twenty-five,

last october 10, 2013, i was involved in a traffic hit-and-run incident. i suffered from hematoma, contusion, and concussion---all head injury. i was confined and released 2 days aftes as my CT scan was negative if any blod clot. I returned to my doctor for check up on oct 18 and he declared me fit to work on oct 19 even though i was still dizzy (i suffer from vertigo until now)... i did not question his authority and went to work. My work entails that i sit down and read 7 hours a day. the difficult part was coming to work and walking to my station as i was still a bit dizzy then. Well, my bf sacrificed a lot by driving me to and from work.

when the hospital finally released my documents for sss on oct 31, 2013, the form went directly to the person in charge in my company.. it went to sss and i was told on nov 20 that sss approved the 30-day sick benefit that my doc (unbeknown to me) approved. I couldn't believe what i heard as i had the return to work slip for oct 19..

it was too late.i came to talk to my doctor and found out that he made a mistake in writing the month.. instead of 11-19-2013, he wrote 10-19-2013 on my return to work slip.

now, i would like to ask, will. still be entitled to get my 39 day credit even if i returned to work? i felt a liitle injustice as i really needed that rest but was deptrived of it.

i spoke to our HR officer here and i was told that double compensation cannot be done... but it was not my error. i feel that i cannot accept that they took away what is legally mine. Please email me at

Dear Twenty-Five:

In 1972, I left my job and lived abroad, leaving 66 months of continuous contributions which have already been documented with my previous employer and per record at SSS Office. I continued making voluntary contributions (all receipts intact) up to the present since few years ago. I will be able to complete the minimum of 120 months of voluntary contribution at the age of 79 on May, 2016. How many more months I will have to wait (from May, 2016) before I could file an application for pension? Your explanations in this regard is deeply appreciated. Thank you.

Hi! I personally filed my mat1 for maternity benefit is sss since im already resigned. one of the requirement is L501 specimen signature card that i should get from my previous employer. The situation is I resigned cause i dont want to make any scandal in our office and i dont want them to know that im pregnant. Should i ask for L501 will they know that its already for maternity or there are still other reasons why should i get one? Is L501 only required for maternity benefit?

can you email me the answer? that will really help. thanks!

Hi, I just want to ask if you have any idea if SSS will honor the Special Power of Attorney executed by my sister in law who is working as a domestic worker in Qatar to allow my dad to process their death claim ( pension ) for my deceased brother on her behalf since she's unable to do so because of her job. As of now she has no day off yet. We were able to claim the funeral benefit ( Php20,000) since we have coordinated with the funeral company. Now, all necessary requirements are ready for submission to SSS. I was even assigned as legal guardian of my neice and nephew ( 13 and 7 years old respectively ), an affidavit and confirmation of legal guardianship was also executed naming me as legal guardian. They are under my care now. My sister in law wasn't able to attend my brother's internment due to her current employment and limitations. Now, I just want to check with you maybe you have an idea if this is possible since I know for a fact that my sister in law is still alive and not sure if the collection office of SSS in Qatar will be able to assist my sister in law just in case SSS will reject the SPA executed by her to authorize my dad to process the death claim on their behalf. Your answer is highly appreciated!

Good Day. I have a brother (borned 1963)who is a polio victim since childhood. He can not walk and uses only wheelchair for his mobility. He was an SSS beneficiary(as disabled) of my late father. Until my father died, the benefit was stopped due to the doctor in Bacolod that disqualify and discontinue him to be a beneficary due to the reason that he (my brother) still can eat by his own. Is there any way to reinstate him as beneficiary if ever the SSS policy allows it? He is a permanent disabled person? thanks for any reply from here.

I dialed your contact numbers 2213536; 2217751 Loc 107 but no one could assist my concern about contributions because Ms. Agnes is not on duty today. Anyway, my concern is my previous employer was an agency named AMB Staffing Services, Inc. located its main office in Mandaue City and branch office in Davao City. AMB Staffing Services, Inc. hired me last February 8, 2013 and ended March 31, 2013 because of the benefits not properly contributed. Then we transferred another agency named Starboard Manpower Services, Inc. last April 1, 2013 until present.

When I checked via online my SSS Contributions, I’ve found out that there were no contributions on February 2013 and March 2013 but it should be indicated there because I have completely passed the requirements upon my employment.

Can you please help me to solve this? Because the AMB agency keep on reasoning that I was belong to my co employees who still have invalid numbers in their SSS.

Do I have to wait for my co-employees to correct their invalid numbers?

May I know what you can do to them or May you help me to suggest what to do so that the AMB agency will accomplish my needs as soon as possible?

The manager of Starboard Manpower Services, Inc. told me personally that our previous agency/ employer did not turn over the benefits of the employees to them.

My SSS ID # is 09-3341565-2.

please reply asap or call me at 0942-5910-364.

good day, i really hope you could point me in the right direction with my sss problem :( my sisters and i filed my father's death claim last year with 2 minors, 1 10 yr old and 1 20 yr old. the last time we went there they told us that unless we could provide an OB history since my mom was 51 when she had our youngest sibling, the claim will be in pending status. Since both my parents are dead, we have no idea where we can find the OB history and I informed the branch head who talked to us of this. She then said that we can refile the claim, leaving the 10 yr old out since SHE thinks she's my daughter (I'm 31), once the 20 yr old turns 21, which she did already. Is this possible? Can we refile the death claim as we are the primary beneficiaries? My dad passed away a year ago and he was 59. Hope you could help me. Thank you very much!

My mom is receiving pension/payment monthly from SSS. She is currently living with us here in California. Her monthly SS payments are being direct depsoited to her bank in the Philippines. She left her sister an SPA (Special Power of Attorney) and a deposit slip signed by my mom so my aunt can withdraw the funds every 3 months or so. The problem now is UCPB (my mom's bank) is refusing to honor the SPA, their saying that SSS has a new ruling not to give the money even with the SPA unless its the pensioner herself doing the withdrawal. I think this is a bunch of bs. My question is, is there such a ruling by SSS? Thank you and would appreciate all the help/info. Ive been trolling the SSS pages but their site is always down.

Good day Twentyfive... I would like to share to your followers some of the terms definition I've read under Republic Act 8282 of 1997. AN ACT FURTHER STRENGTHENING THE SOCIAL SECURITY SYSTEM THEREBY AMENDING FOR THIS PURPOSE, REPUBLIC ACT NO. 1161, AS AMENDED, OTHERWISE KNOWN AS THE SOCIAL SECURITY LAW

Under section #8 of this act, paragraph:

g) Monthly salary credit - The compensation base for contributions and benefits in the SSS contribution table of 2013.

l) Contingency - Retirement,death,disability,sickness/injury and maternity.

m) Average monthly salary credit (AMSC) - The result obtained by deviding the sum of the last 60 monthly salary credits immediately preceding the semester of contingency by 60, or the result obtained by dividing the sum of all the monthly salary credits paid prior to the semester of contingency by the number of monthly contributions paid in the same period, whichever is greater: Provided, That the injury or sickness which caused the disability shall be deemed as the permanent disability for the purpose of computing the average monthly salary credit.

o) Semester - A period of two consecutive quarters ending in the quarter of contingency.

p) Quarter - A period of three consecutive calendar months ending on the last day of March, June, September and December.

q) Credited years of sevice (CYS) - For a member covered prior to January 1985 minus the calendar year of coverage plus the number of calendar years in which six or more contributions have been paid from January 1985 up to the calendar year containing the semester prior to the contingency. For a member covered in or after January 1985, the number of calendar years in which six or more contributions have been paid from the year of coverage up th the calendar year containing the semester prior to the contingency: Provided, That the commission may provide for a different number of contributions in a calendar year for it to be considered as a credited year of service.

tope 3 years ago

im working in a private company. My company remits my SSS contribution for the previous month every 10th of the current month.

before, update on my contributions are on time and fast.. but recently, it's taking a lot of time (almost a month). For example, it's already th 4th of July and yet my May 2013 contribution is not posted yet.

I went to the nearest SSS branch and they cannot provide me the exact reason of the delay. They just told me to keep checking my online account until it is already updated.

With you experience, how long does it really take for contributions to post on your account. With the technology we have nowadays, it's a bit odd that instead of faster service - it's actually taking a lot of time. This is frustrating especially if you would like to apply for a loan.

any ideas about this matter?

Anybody here affected by the new loan rates implemented

retroactively in August 2010? 10 years ago I went abroad to work. I overlooked that my loan was not fully paid yet. SO when I came back after 10 years to update my SSS status/records, I was surprised to find out that I still owe them and of course it more than doubled with the interest and penalty. Because in fact the loan was not paid in full, I paid the whole amount in August of 2010. But two years after paying , I went to SSS to get my new ID picture but was surprised to find out that I still owe them! They said that what I paid was only penalty & interest, it did not include the principal! How did that happen! The only explanation they could give me was that they implemented a new ruling (rates&penalty) effective 'retroactively' sometime in August 2010, and maybe I got caught in the middle of it; and maybe some technical problems with their systems. I wrote a complaint to the office of the President in July 2012 and until now I have not heard from them. I really feel upset about this because apparently the people affected by this unjust ruling simply paid, because they don't want to be bothered raising the issue. My issues:(1) I was not properly informed that there was a new ruling/ratesvto be implemented(2) the rates was applied retroactively to old loans (3) and I paid what I was told the whole amount; if the their staff or system made a mistake, why should I be penalized for it?

Because of this unresolved issue with them and lack of feedback,I have stopped contributing. Now I cannot avail of loan nor a maternity benefit.

Why do people put up with this inefficiencies and lack of concern on the part of SSS on their members. (And I know a relative whose husband died last July 2012, and until now has not received the benefits, almost a year now).

Hi! Thank you for such an informative post. This has undeniably helped a lot of our fellowmen in getting answers on facts and figures of the benefits of SSS. I admit that like most of the commenters above, I was not fully aware of these things til I stumbled on your great hub.

Since no one had the same concern as my father's, could you please advise me what we should do.

My father is turning 66 this year and he was not able to process his retirement benefit applications upon reaching 60. Recently he went to check his total contributions and was shocked to know that his previous employer abroad paid his monthly contributions to a wrong SSS number! This is for a total of 5 years (60 contributions), which sadly made his total contributions less than 120. He had kept his payslips from those years, showing the deductions, but unfortunately his then company is not existing anymore. How should we go about this? And what are the possible benefits my father could get in this case? Thank you, more power and God bless.

I only made those contribution for 2 yrs while working as domestic helper.I stopped working 1 yr ago, and at the present time i am still unemployed, however i am continuing 1560 contribution on a voluntary basis, i am only 36 yrs old now and if i continue for the next 7 yr paying 1560 a month i will have 120 months of contribution. Therefore at age 46 i already have 120 months of contribution,is there any advantage for me to continue paying 1560 until i retire age 60 if so what is the advantage?

Hi makaka avail ba ng maternity benefit kung after delivery ang application? Hindi na nila ako pinagbabayad ng premium ngayon hanggat hindi pa tapos ang adjustments ng sss ko. self employed ako at nagbabayad ng 300+ monthly then suddenly i change the amount to 1560 and paying for 2 years, they cannot find the application to upgrade my premiums, almost 1 year na ako hindi nagbabayad dahil wala pa sila notice na pwede na ako maghulog.

I want to correct my contributions from july 2008-dec 2008 and posted my company's contributions instead of my voluntary payments. I have paid my voluntary contributions for the said months and was posted however my company has also paid for these months. I already submitted the needed docs five times as to speak since 2008 coz they always misplaced it, in SSS Binondo branch and until now it hasn't been corrected. Please advise me on what to do? If I have to submit these documents in their main branch for immediate actions.

Itanong ko lang po paano ang iba pa naming dapat gawin sa pagkuha ng burial claim ng namatay kong kuya na si Andrew Gaudia Tandoc, SSS number 0369747790. Namatay siya last July 23, 2012 sa bahay namin sa Pasig dahil sa kidney disease. Nailibing po siya sa Heavens Gate Memorial Gardens-Antipolo.

Nag-submit ang mother ko ng lahat ng requirements para sa claim ng SSS burial benefits noong August 5 sa Shaw Blvd., Pasig branch. Tiningnan lang ang form pero hindi nila tinanggap. Naka-attached pa rin sa form ang “ACKNOWLEDGEMENT STUB”. Pero naka-record daw sa computer ang lahat ng information nito. Ang advise sa mother ko ay mag-follow up personally ng every 2 weeks sa SSS Shaw Blvd.

Ang lagging sagot sa mother ko ay di pa daw natatapos ang imbestigasyon dahil hanggang ngayon ay naghihintay sila ng resulta ng imbestigasyon na magmumula sa Antipolo. Nagpunta po ang mother ko sa Heaven’s Gate Office at tinanong kung nakakatanggap ba sila na investigation request mula sa SSS para sa namatay kong kapatid. Sinabi po ng staff mula sa Heaven’s Gate Office na wala silang natatanggap mula sa SSS at walang pumupuntang imbestigador doon sa kanila.

Sumulat na rin ako sa SSS online inquiry pero wala daw record sa database nila.

Sana po ay matulungan niyo kami.

Some companies have different hiring rules like they make someone 'regular' or 'permanent' employee after 6 months, others after a year or longer. Regarding SSS contributions, it starts when you pay for it. If you saw on your payslip that you have been deducted for SSS, then that means you have contributed. You know how many months you have contributed, if not, check your payslips in the past.

can i still avail my sss maternity benefits, since im already unemployed for 1 year already?

twentyfive profile image

twentyfive 4 years ago Author

@Jo In my opinion yes it affects because it may affect in the computation of monthly pension and creditable year of service. There is no specific requirement to retirement benefit excluding disability beneficiary prior to retirement age, I suggest your mom must apply still. Help her and assist her because she needs you. Happy New Year :)

@Bebot I can only share what I think and you must still ask SSS about your inquiries here. I think the computation must only be discussed by them and you. You need to view your records and reconcile your documents with them. You can resume your contributions if you are unemployed now by being a voluntary member and you won’t pay penalties unless you have loans or unless you are paying the month or quarter before the deadline. I know voluntary members can pay thru banks, Western Union, SM, Robinsons, and other SSS accredited payment centers nationwide. But before that, you must go to the SSS personally to update your membership as voluntary member and know how much you will pay (you can choose how much you can afford for your monthly contributions). Keep your receipts always. Happy New Year! :)

@Adriano please verify your account at the SSS office to know why you get that error message. There must be a reasonable explanation why you get that. Good luck and Happy New Year :)

I'm a disability pensioner and I'm using my real name as per my record in SSS since 1973 so it's either your records is in a mess, not updated or your Online System is technically defective. Please make the necessary actions to rectify this problem. I respecfully request that you do something with my problem immediately. I'm a disabled person.

I learned from an SSS office here, that my projected pension is about PHP 7,500... just quite enough for my medications. As it was getting late, I was not able to ask them this questions:

1) I've been an SSS member and contributing since 1974. My last contribution was in 2005 when the company I worked with closed shop. That was 31 years of contribution, but my total contribution was only 336 months or 28 years. Why?

2) If my 336 months contri is equivalent to 28 years, why is it my CYS is only 25 months?

3) How many months does it consist a CYS?

4) My monthly contri stopped when I lost my job in 2005. Now that I'm free of debts, I want to resume my SSS contri as voluntary. Can I? If so, what will happen to my 7 years vacant? Do I have to pay some penalties?

5) The nearest SSS and banks is 67km away. I'm 58 and not as robust as before, can I pay my whole 2013 contri in one go, this January... so I can save on fare, bother and time?

My mom got cancer from her workplace and was compensated by SSS through their disability package. She's just 56 years old when she got ill. October next year, her disability pension will stop. At the age of 60, will she start receiving her retirement pension, or will this be affected by her previous receipt of SSS' disability package?

Thank you and more power!

@Tony yes, he can apply for pension benefits under the Portability Law (combine SSS and GSIS). Apply asap to the GSIS office near you so you know if you are qualified and entitled for pension under that retirement program. You can ask SSS about this too by going there personally.

@Janzki You must go to the SSS and ask about the stopped pension. There must be a reason for that. The bank just issue funds after SSS entered them at the system, meaning, they cannot entertain you about the reason of stoppage.

@Joy we cannot pay the months that we missed in insurance or SSS. What we can do is to pay the present and the future months. Yeah you can continue until he reached the required months or until retirement

I don't think it's possible to adjust the pension amount by adding amount to her contributions.

Sorry for late replies.. I was on holidays..

@Jacob and Rachel you must have at least 3 monthly contributions within the 12-month period preceding the semester of your childbirth or due date.

-A semester refers to two consecutive quarters ending in the quarter of contingency.

-A quarter refers to three consecutive months ending March, June, September or December.

For maternity benefits, it is advisable to apply as early as before your due date. Your company can advise SSS about your application in advance.

@Marvie I know SSS requires at least 6 monthly contributions before a member can apply for a loan and they will assess you pa

@Jen the legal wife will receive benefits if she has not remarried and she is listed as the legal wife under the late member’s beneficiary list

@Wen yeah as long as she meets the requirements for maternity benefits. Notify SSS right away before her claim.

@Ila I honestly don’t know how SSS compute their retirement benefits when you reach the age 60. All I know is that, a member must have continuous contributions so that her CYS will be counted properly. The effect of lapses and missed payments will be very big to the result and amount of our pension.

@Nicalucero yeah as long as he meets the conditions and requirements for the educational loan

@Sweetcorn any female employed, separated or voluntary can avail maternity benefits provided she meets the requirements. Regarding reimbursement after 8 years, I don’t know if they will give it back. Inquire at SSS personally

@Bermudez You must have continued your payments even if you’re unemployed by being voluntary member instead. The requirements for maternity claims are posted at my comment to Jacob and Rachel above. I know SSS doesn’t allow retroactive payment of contributions. Once you missed a month, you cannot pay for it anymore. Thank you and God bless.

@Vicky yes I know disable and incapacitated children are given pension benefits and SSS is monitoring their status periodically. I just don’t know up to what extent and how long. I think it depends on SSS medical team and authorized staff’s assessment if the dependent is still entitled (ie: if the disability is total, partial or permanent) God bless you po.

@May hi there! yes she can avail as long as her premiums are continuous and meet the requirement for maternity benefits. Notify SSS in advance for your claim and don’t wait for November

@Gwen You must report to SSS the death of the pensioner. Submit his death certificate and atm. SSS will tell you about the claimed pension after the date of death and they will tell you too if you are qualified for other benefits like funeral

@Nica it is better if you make a follow up by calling the SSS branch where you have applied the loan. Have a sweet day :)

@Harold that is a one million dollar question, let SSS give your tentative computation heheh

@Leizel update your status by being a voluntary member and paying your current contributions.

Hello po.. Paano po ba macompute ung AMSC? Total contribution po divided by CYS or total contribution divided by total number of contributions? Let us say po na PHP 116,000 ang total contribution po tapos 312 total number of contributions pero mga 20 years lng ang CYS kasi may taon na hindi kompleto ung pagbayad ng contri.. Supposedly 26 years kac ung equivalent ng 312 total number of contributions.. So to get the AMSC po ay i.divide ko ung PHP116,000 by 312? or by 240 lang (20 yrs CYS)? Tapos tingnan ko nlng ang quotient sa in line monthly salary credit nya sa table na nasa taas.. In this case, pag i.divide ko ng 312 lalabas na quotient is 371 (3500 lng ung AMSC nito) pero pag i.divide ko ng 240 ang quotient ay 483 (4500 naman yung AMSC nito). Please clarify po maam. Thanks

@Mhean I honestly don't know if they are giving maternity claims for the un-applied ones (ie: first baby). What I'm sure of is that they allow benefits up to the fourth child. You better visit SSS personally and ask regarding this if they didn't tell your liaison officer clearly the details. God bless!

Hi twenty five.

Good eve. Ask ko lang regarding maternity benefit. I am 5 mos. pregnant now with my 2nd child. Hindi ko po na-avail yung maternity benefit ko sa 1st baby ko last 2010. Yung ngaun bale na-notify na ng company nmin sa SSS. Ask ko lang if pwede ko pa rin ma-file /ma-avail yung maternity benefit ko sa 1st baby ko. Nainform ksi s akin nf ofizmate ko na pwede daw. What's the best thing to do. Please advise.

@Rea it is better if you assist your father in the SSS branch office where is membership is based. Check and look over his records and let SSS assess his eligibility of potential benefits today or in the future. Bring valid ID and his SSS number or SSS ID.

@Tess he must be an active member or an active pensioner to avail burial benefits. If he just contributed 1000 on year 2002, I don’t think he will be granted a benefit. You may check at SSS to verify. God bless you.

@Janeth you must have continued your active status until the date of your impairment. 5 years wow sayang naman if you didn’t continue it. You can ask the SSS branch handling your membership and try availing. They know it best what to do with your case. Thanks and more power. :)

@Gwen read about Death benefits in the article to see if the beneficiaries are qualified. Thank you.

@Gleion let SSS assess your case although I think you can still avail as long as you meet the requirements for maternity benefits.

@Shangrila if he became 22 I think he will not receive pension anymore. He can apply for benefits by submitting the required application form and 2 valid IDs in his case, student ID and his NSO authenticated birth certificate.

@Lezel I admit this is a special case since you’re an OFW. I don’t know the exact process with this situation however, as an active SSS member, you deserve this benefit and SSS allow maternity benefits up to the 4th child delivery. Once you knew you’re pregnant, you can file in advance your maternity claim so SSS will be notified immediately. You may authorize someone from your family to submit the required documents to SSS on your behalf. Then SSS will have the final say how will you receive the check for your maternity claim. God bless you and your new baby :)

Hi Jay. You might not receive funeral grant of 20,000 if you never spent for the burial expenses however you may receive death benefits either by cash or pension if the beneficiaries of the deceased SSS member are qualified. Please read the part about Death benefits in the article above so you know. God bless :)

Sorry for late reply..busy days..

@Des, you can apply at SSS I think they will grant you benefits as long as you are an active member until your due date

@Cresencio, if you have made an update about change of address and bank account, you may follow up the status of your application by contacting your former SSS branch.

@Karen pension is a reward for the many years of service working and contributing to the SSS and once it is issued to retirees, it will be there until they are alive wherever they may be. Right now, I think there is no law disallowing pensioners with their benefits with regards to citizenship. You will still receive pension if you’re abroad. However, if the pensioner is a spouse of the original SSS pensioner and she is just receiving pension by being a surviving spouse of the deceased pensioner, she will receive pension as long as she’s not marrying another man. That’s what I know. You can ask SSS directly to know more about this. Thank you and God bless.

@Anol in order to compute your pension, the CYS is needed and your salary each month from the whole period of your CYS. You can always ask a tentative computation if your retirement is near at the SSS office handling your membership.

Hi, you can go to the SSS branch handling your membership and let them assess your qualifications. Only them can tell coz they are going to look at your contributions, employer's shares, past records, member's history, loans and others in their database for you to know if you are entitled for lump sum.

Have a good day and take care. Watch the floods..

@Maryann yes you can file a loan if as long you are active and has been paying continuous contributions at least 6 months.

Yes qualified sya basta he completed at least120 months (or 10 years of payment) upon reaching 60

@Jeana yes you can stop your voluntary status and just switch to being employed. Once your employer reported your SSS contributions under them, your status will be changed as ‘employed’. You can check your contributions if they are being entered in the SSS by registering at SSS online inquiry. I have page about that in my profile here you can check it out.

You can have SSS ID as long as you’re active. It takes minutes to apply and have picture taken pero I heard it takes years when they release them. I hope mabilis na now.

@Mac you must have continuous contributions to remain active. SSS requires at least 6 months of contributions for anyone who want to avail of benefits.. Pay your benefits and continue your coverage by being a voluntary member if you are not employed anymore

@Loida you must have active status before you can claim any benefit

@Rico You can try to avail of benefits by going to the SSS branch handling your membership and bring your SSS number, valid IDs and list of contributions (example receipts, or SSS employer’s collection list, or any copy indicating your SSS payments) They will then assess you if you are entitled to benefits

@MJ22 if you have continuous SSS payments of contributions even if you stopped working, you can avail of benefits. SSS requires a member to have at least 6 months of contributions prior to the period of application. If your delivery is on Nov. 2012, your payments must be continued from January 2012 to your due date or application date

@Teody I’m sorry I couldn’t give info regarding amounts here.

@Kim If he is paying SSS or his payroll shows SSS payments, then he must be an active SSS member. You can ask your employer about this. Nagbabayad ba siya ng SSS?

@Jen only them could really assist you about this. It is their responsibility to make your membership working smoothly. You and your SSS branch could fix this.

@Jhelai yes you can apply for a loan online if you registered in the MY SSS. The member must be an active member before she will get approved. You can also apply personally for loan provided you are an active member too – meaning your contributions must be continuous. If you stopped working, you can update your status as voluntary member to keep your membership active and pay your premiums monthly or quarterly. You can then apply for a loan. SSS requires at least 6 months of contribution in the current period prior to your loan application

@Caloy only the legal spouse or listed beneficiary can claim for benefits of the late SSS member. File for his pension in the SSS, once you are approved and entitled for the pension, you can claim it. If not, then you are really not.

@Jenny please make a follow up at the SSS San Pablo branch

@Jaja report the death of the SSS member/pensioner to avail of the funeral benefits and also ask if anyone is entitled for pension like her husband.. Submit her NSO death certificate and ATM/passbook and your valid IDs. If you are still gonna get her pension even if she’s dead, SSS will ask you to pay it back no matter what – you’re lucky if without interests. Remember, following the law and what is right always rules or else you want to have major problem in the future.

@Princess I think about a week or two. They will contact you once the claim is ready for releasing either by phone or mail. If you are naininp na, you can always make a follow up by calling the SSS branch where you file the lumpsum

@Ced you can report directly to SSS main office about your situation. This is just a page sharing the details about the benefits of SSS members. This is not the official SSS website. I think your Special Power of Attorney could be used by your representative here in the country to act on your behalf. I hope too SSS will do their job well. We all deserve good service.

I'm here now in CA since I left ABBOTT LAB. in the Phils 1985. Now that I'm turning 68 I have been following my retirement pesion with your office but the employees handling my claim gave me a hard time since I first applied for my monthly pension. They asked for so many documents w/c I have filed. That SSS employee must know her job. Here I have retired and receives my montly pension already but back there in the Phils., they're giving me a hard time. Any anomaly? Any kickback coz I'm here abroad and just executed an SPA to follow-up my pension? Can you justify that your employees are performing their duties for the taxpayers are the onces paying for their salaries and one day they too will retire. Please let them examine their conscience, if they have any. Hope to hear from you office or I'll publish this situation.

@Avana yes of course :)

@Jhongandai you can pay the month of June until July and the last quarter in the previous quarter and so on..

@April because we cannot pay our missed period retroactively since SSS is an insurance but we can still be qualified for benefits as long as we remain active and continuously paying. Just pay continuously and you won’t have any problem. If you paid like 2 years, I suggest you continue paying til you can to receive pension in the future. Your father will receive pension when he’s 60 and have completed the required months.

If your daddy is a voluntary member, always submit his receipt and the form applicable so SSS will post the payment and so that you will be sure his premiums are correctly posted in their database. You can register him for SSS Online Inquiry and check his records anytime. Check out the page I’ve published about SSS Online Inquiry if you want to register

Hello! My father asked me to continue to pay his SSS contribution since i am now employed and capable of continuing his contribution. He have contributed for 2 years (2008-2009) but have not contributed for more than a year already since 2010. Now, in his behalf, i went to SSS and paid 624Php for the month of May and June 2012. I actually don't have any idea about the benefits (insurance,loan,etc.) of SSS not until i read your article (thank you BTW!:)). I don't even know that the minimum contribution for voluntary members is 312Php (i just asked those people paying there). My concern is, is it possible for me to make up and pay for those months where my father was not able to contribute?I am really blank, so dumb about this, just did my thing without any idea about it.

@julianaa I suggest you go to SSS and bring your mom with her valid IDs, and the receipt of the payment from the contributions and amortization. Request SSS to post the entries. It’s much better if you always pay thru SSS personally next time so everything will be posted accordingly. I hope the SSS will fix your problem soon. Say hi to your mom and God bless..

@Laine much better if you ask SSS personally regarding your computations. Values are seen on the database and from your past history records. You’ll need that even for temporary computation

@Greencharm you must update to ‘voluntary member’ since premiums are all paid by yourself without the employer’s share..Also you need to submit a copy of your receipt together with RS-5 form every time you pay so SSS will post the payment and contributions regularly. It is a major responsibility of a voluntary member to keep your SSS records up to date.

@Isabella The form is called RS-5. If you want to become SSS voluntary member, you need to register first at the SSS branch near you and then submit that form in triplicate copies to pay your contributions. SSS will discuss the matters with you upon registration. You will also choose the amount of premiums that you can easily afford and pay in your situation and needs. Thank you. God bless.

@Noodle You can avail of benefits if you have paid 6 months in the current year of your active membership. So, it’s late in your case.

Hi! I am a voluntary member and paying the maximum contribution of P1,560.00/mo for over 5 years now until present. Likewise, I already paid more than 300+ monthly contributions to SSS and hopefully by year 2018 I'll be retiring, and will cease from paying my monthly premium.

Now, I am just wondering, how much I will be receiving when I'll retire and is it possible for me to receive a lump sum good for 5 years or just 18 months only?

Good day po,

Ask lang po ako ng clarification, Im 5 months pregnant po kasi and unfortunately medyo complicated yung pregnancy. I had history of threatened abortion nung first trimester so I had to file sick leave sa SSS. My OB decided na hindi muna ako pagtrabahuin until pagkatapos ko manganak and I know for a fact na mga three months lang ata ang covered pag nag file ng sickness benefit sa SSS para may matanggap na fiancial support. My question is, kahit ba na consumed ko na at nakatanggap na ako ng financal assistance sa SSS thru sickness benefit, can I still apply for maternity benefit para may makuha pa din ako? Ang mahal kasi ng gastusin manganak and I dont think na normal delivery talaga.. pasensya na talaga ha, nalilito lang talaga :P

good day! tanong ko lang sa maternity benefit kc nakalagay amount to receive should be 100% of the basic salary kaso ung nareceive ko na first half ng maternity benefit ko eh 15K lang eh ang basic ko pumapatak na 26k. i found out that 15K is the maximum amount that can be given to employee. Is the employer compelled to give the employee the difference of the maximum SSS benefit & the basic salary?

Requesting to direct this comment to: Administrator, SSS Philippines.

I am a retired Filipino SSS Employee, who received pension benefit since the time I turned 62 (retro active)from 2007.

Sincerely yours

My wife and I are now resident of New Zealand and since turning 65, (2010) qualified age to receive NZ Pension (Superannuation). One of the conditions, if you received overseas pension, (presumably one provided for by a government pension benefit from that country) this effectively be deducted from the NZ pension benefit you received.

We have raised this issue with the NZ Work and Income, Ministry of Social Development, PO Box 27-178, Wellington NZ. The understanding of NZ Work and Income, the pension benefit, we received from SSS Philippines are GOVERNMENT funded. We claimed on the other hand that this was NOT the case, as we contributed to SSS as well as our Employer contributing the same to the employees fund.

Our request and for the many other retired SSS employees in overseas, a letter send explaining and justifying that SSS Pension Benefits paid to overseas Retired Filipino are NOT subsidise government funded (GSIS) but a PRIVATE PENSION FUND.

Will a company be any way liable if one of its employees claimed his retirement benefits from SSS but would like to still continue working? Since 60 is not a compulsory retirement age, the company cannot ask the employee to retire. What should the employer do?
