How to Get Your SSS Number and Register an Account Online

Updated on November 4, 2015
twentyfive profile image

An online writer, website creator, published poet and a simple Pinay. I love the beach and writing about the Philippines and Asia.

The Social Security System (SSS) in the Philippines is available for every individual, employed or self-employed, OFW, voluntary member, non-working spouse and household worker. It is a system through which individuals are able to get insurance benefits and it is also a very important asset for retirement.

Getting an SSS number is the first step to becoming a member of the SSS. At the moment, it is not possible to apply for an SSS number online since you need to submit major documents like your NSO-authenticated birth certificate, which must be done in person.

Once you get your number, however, you can manage your account online where you can view your contributions and other important information.

I have listed here the requirements and steps on how to get an SSS number. There is also some information below on getting an online account set up.

Do you already have your SSS number?

See results

How to Get an SSS Number

1. Download the SSS E1 form and print two copies.

You can find the documents you need at the Social Security System's official website. Fill it with your personal details and information. List your desired beneficiaries. Make sure all spellings are correct. Sign the paper.

2. Submit the E1 form at the SSS office along with the following:

Originals plus photocopies of:

  • NSO-authenticated birth certificate
  • Baptismal certificate
  • Valid passport

If you don't have any of these primary documents, you can submit two of the following documents where your name and birth date appear together:

  • Marriage contract
  • Birth certificate of children
  • GSIS member’s records
  • Company ID
  • Voter ID
  • School ID
  • Driver’s license
  • Certification from the National Archives
  • Alien Certificate of Registration
  • Joint affidavit of two disinterested persons attesting to the correct name and date of birth of the applicant

There are some other documents that will work — you can look at the official website for a complete list of acceptable documents.

Video: Getting a New SSS Number

Important notes:

  • You can only have one SSS number, which will stay with you for your entire life. If you have multiple ones for any reason, you could have problems.
  • If you lose your number, do not register to get a new number. See below for information on how to retrieve it.
  • Having an SSS number doesn’t mean you automatically get all of the benefits. You must be engaged in an occupation or career subject to SSS coverage.

How to Register an Account Online

It is very easy to register your number online. All SSS pensioners and members can view contributions and balances as well as look at your SSS static info and employment history. Here's how:

  1. Go to the SSS website.
  2. Sign up for a member account (be sure you select member and not employer). For this, you'll need your SSS number, your latest SSS payment receipt, and your personal information (like birthdate, address, and name).
  3. Be sure all of your information is correct before you submit it. Once you submit, SSS will send you an email with your username and password.
  4. Follow the instructions in the email that the SSS sends you. You will have to fill in some more information. Be sure you read everything carefully and check the details before submitting.
  5. You should get another email from SSS saying congratulations on registering your account, and you should be able to log in and view your account.

If you want more information, Philpad has a comprehensive article about registering your account online.

Frequently Asked Questions

If I Lost My SSS Number, How Can I Get It Online?

You can’t get it or retrieve it online. If you forgot your SSS number or lost the E1 copy, you can ask your current employer about it since they definitely have a record of it. If you don’t want to ask your employer, you can always go the SSS office and ask for it. Just be sure to bring valid identification (see above).

Can I View My SSS Contributions Online?

Yes, thankfully we can view our SSS records online together with contributions, employer history, loan application status, and other information. Just register online and get an easy way to access your account. (See above section for more information on this.)

      You must leave that field/box blank because SSS will put there your SSS Number. SSS will return to you the duplicate copy of E1 form and you must keep it so you'll always remember your SSS number.

      Hi Twentyone,

      I was wondering if there is an age limit in applying for an SSS number. I've been reading online and searching the internet but there is no information w/ regards to the acceptable age limit in applying for one. I am assuming that there is none. However, I heard from our helper that she was denied an SSS number years ago since she was already around 40+ (I think). Is this true?

      I am asking, because I want to help my Aunt get an SSS but she is turning 44 this year, so we are doubtful if we should proceed :) Kudos to your site, it's very informative, are you by chance an SSS employee?

      @Cris go to the SSS branch near you and update first your status if you are employed, voluntary member, OFW etc..then start paying the desired monthly contributions at SSS. If you are employed, your contributions will be deducted from your salary and your employer will be the one who will update your SSS payments. If you're voluntary member, you need to pay personally either at SSS or to some accredited paying centers. I suggest you pay at SSS directly.

      Go to the SSS and verify first if you have given SSS number before. I wonder why you had the stub so you need to verify about it. Bring valid IDs and your NSO BC. If you don't have SSS Number on their record, then apply for one.

      @Margie you are welcome here and to my other pages too :) God bless you!

      @Crispomeda you must bring his NSO authenticated death certificate and your valid IDs and birth certificate. You must also know his SSS number. The receipt in his funeral expenses may be needed too. SSS then will assess you if you are qualified for benefits.

      @Coco personal appearance is required

      @Ging Hi there! You can continue your membership by updating your status – either employed or voluntary member. Go to the SSS branch near you and update your membership. You must know your SSS number. Bring valid IDs too and some money to pay your current contributions to become active now.
