Do you want to check your SSS contributions online without the hassle of going to the SSS branch?
With the new SSS Online Beta, you certainly can do that!
My.SSS Beta is the new online portal of the SSS website where you can login and access your SSS information, SSS contribution, generate PRN, file SSS benefits, and more. CONTINUE READING
Na-late ka ba sa pagbabayad ng SSS contributions mo ngayong 2018?
Actually, hindi ka nag-iisa dahil maraming SSS members ang hindi nakapagbayad on time dahil sa bagong sistema ng SSS sa paggamit ng Payment Request Number or PRN. CONTINUE READING
The PRN is different from CRN (Common Reference Number) or SSS number.
The PRN can be found online by logging in to your SSS online account through My.SSS or by going to SSS website at www.sss.gov.ph.
If you don’t have an account online or if you can’t login to My.SSS successfully, you may request for your SSS Payment Reference Number at the SSS branch or any payment channel or partner.
What’s good about this Payment Reference Number is that your contributions are posted real-time.
Before, it would take days for it to show up on your account specially if you pay at any SSS payment partners. This results to a delay in the processing of SSS benefits.
When the SSS started implementing the usage of PRN, there was only a limited number of SSS payment partners that accept SSS contributions.
But as of this writing, SSS has now 15 partner banks and non-bank partners that accept SSS contributions using PRN.
For Employers CONTINUE READING
If you’re having the same issue, don’t just keep quiet!
It is your right to ask your employer about it or file a complaint directly with the SSS if you know that you are deducted for your SSS contributions and yet your employer fails to remit it to the SSS on time.
But first, do your research by checking your SSS contributions. If you don’t know how to do this, try any of the options below.
1. Check your SSS Contributions ONLINE thru My.SSS Facility
The easiest way to know if your employer is remitting your SSS contributions is to access your SSS account online.
But before you can do that, you must register first at the My.SSS facility at sss.gov.ph. Don’t worry, you’ll only do this once.
And when you’re registered, you can access your SSS account anytime and anywhere using your computer or smartphone with internet connection.
How to Check SSS Contributions Online
When you get to the Actual Premiums page, you’ll see the list of your SSS contributions with the amount and month of contribution.
The only downside to this option is that sometimes, the SSS website is very slow or it doesn’t load at all. That’s why I suggest you access your SSS online account after office hours or during weekends.
Checking your SSS contributions through My.SSS facility is FREE of charge, but you must have an internet connection in order to access the site.
If you cannot access the SSS website or you have not registered to My.SSS yet, you may inquire for your SSS contributions by texting SSS.
But before you can text your inquiry, you must register first by texting your SSS number and birth date to 2600 using this format:
Example: SSS REG 3312345678 5/20/1985
Once your registration is successful, you’ll receive a text message with a four-digit PIN. You will use this PIN in all your inquiries using Text-SSS.
How to Check SSS Contributions thru TEXT
Using your cellphone, send this text message to 2600:
Example: SSS CONTRIB 3312345678 1234
Checking your SSS contributions thru Text-SSS facility has a charge:
If you prefer checking your SSS contributions personally, then you may visit the nearest SSS branch or office.

To avoid the long queues, set an appointment online through My.SSS facility.
What should I do if I discover that my employer is not paying my SSS contributions? CONTINUE READING
This means that as of this writing, the maximum contribution rate is still P1,760 with Monthly Salary Credit (MSC) of P16,000 for members who earn ₱15,750 and above.
On the other hand, the minimum contribution rate is P110 with Monthly Salary Credit (MSC) of P1,000 for members who earn at least ₱1,000 per month.
The amount of your SSS contribution depends on your salary or compensation.
1. For Self-employed and Voluntary Members
You should pay the 11% of the MSC based on the monthly earnings declared at the time of registration.
2. For OFWs
The minimum monthly salary credit is pegged at ₱5,000. Therefore, your minimum contribution to SSS is ₱550. But since most OFWs earn more than ₱15,750, you are expected to pay the maximum contribution which is ₱1,760 per month.
3. For the Non-working Spouse
The contribution will be based on 50% of the working spouse’s last posted monthly salary credit but in no case shall it be lower than ₱1,000.
To know how much you’re supposed to pay for your SSS contribution, please refer to the SSS Contribution Table 2018 below for Self-employed, Voluntary, Non-working Spouse, and OFW members.
Example 1: For Self-employed, Voluntary, and OFWs
If you’re earning ₱12,000 per month, your MSC is P12,000 and your monthly contribution is ₱1,320.
Example 2: For the Non-working Spouse
If your working spouse is earning ₱12,000 per month, his MSC is P12,000. 50% of his MSC is ₱6,000 which becomes your MSC as a Non-working Spouse. Therefore, your monthly contribution is ₱660.
4. For the Employed Member
The current SSS contribution rate is 11% of the MSC not exceeding ₱16,000 and this is being shared by the employer (7.37%) and the employee (3.63%).
Please refer to the SSS Contribution Table 2018 below for Employed members.
Example 3: For Employed Members
If you’re earning ₱12,000 per month, your MSC is P12,000. Your employer pays ₱894 and you pay ₱436 (through salary deduction). The total amount of your SSS monthly contribution in this case is ₱1,330.
Why is the Contribution Rate for Employed Members higher even with the same MSC as the Self-employed, Voluntary, and OFW members?
Based on the two tables above, the contribution rate for an employed member with an MSC of ₱12,000 is ₱1,330 while the contribution rate for the Self-employed, Voluntary, and OFW member with the same MSC of ₱12,000 is ₱1,320.
The ₱10 difference is actually the Employer’s share for the Employee Compensation Law (EC Law) which aims to assist workers or employees who suffer work-connected sickness or injury resulting in disability or death. The employer is responsible for this amount.
It is important that you are aware of the payment deadlines for your SSS contributions to avoid any issues especially when availing or claiming your SSS benefits.
Please refer to the table below for the schedule and due dates of SSS contribution payments.
1. For Self-employed and Voluntary members
No retropayment is accepted – meaning if you missed the previous month or quarter after the deadline, you cannot pay it anymore.
2. For OFWs
3. For Employed members
Your employer must pay your contributions monthly in accordance with the prescribed schedule of payment which is according to the 10th digit of the Employer’s ID Number.
The frequency of payment is on a monthly basis for business and household employers. CONTINUE READING
I have read some comments both on this website and on our FB page that some people are having a hard time accessing their SSS online accounts after the Social Security System has made some changes/updates on the website.
I don’t know why but when I check the site, nothing much has changed and accessing my contributions online is still easy and fast.
The steps are pretty much the same with my previous post: The Simplest Way to Check your SSS Contribution on Internet Explorer.
I only noticed one simple thing on the main menu navigation bar.
Before, it looks like this:
The main navigation bar has the following tabs: Home, E-Services, and Member’s Profile.
Under E-Services, there’s Inquiry, Apply for Salary Loan, P.E.S.O. Fund, Submit Maternity Notification, Submit Technical Retirement, and Simulated Retirement Calculator.
Now, take a look at the new version of this page on the SSS website:
As you can see, E-Services is now on the third tab with fewer sub-menu.
A new tab was also added and that is the Payment Reference Number (PRN). Starting January 16, 2018, you can now pay your SSS contributions regularly using your PRN and have them posted instantly.
With the new updates on the SSS website, is it now easier to check our SSS contributions online?
Step 1 – Go to sss.gov.ph to open the official website of the Philippine Security System.
As of this writing, this is how the main page looks like:
The headline is based on their latest news so expect that it will be updated regularly.
Step 2 – Under Member Login, enter your User ID and Password.
Read this if you haven’t registered to the SSS online platform yet:
Step 3 – Once you’re successfully logged in, point your mouse cursor to E-Services, then click Inquiry.
Step 4 – Point your mouse cursor to Member Info, then click Actual Premiums.
Step 5 – View your SSS Contributions or Actual Premiums
Isn’t it pretty simple? Well, it is.
You’ll only have a problem accessing the SSS website if you forgot your User ID or Password. In that case, check out this article on how to reset it.
If you cannot access the website using browsers other than Internet Explorer, make sure to follow the instructions that will pop up on the screen. Or better yet, just use Internet Explorer for easier navigation.
To contact SSS, you may call their customer contact center at 920-6446 to 55, email them at email@example.com, send a private message through their FB Page, or visit the nearest SSS branch.
If you’re abroad, you may reach the SSS through its

OFWs can pay their voluntary SSS contributions for January to December any day within the same year, while their October to December payments are accepted until January 31 of the following year.
SSS Advance Payments
Self-employed and voluntary members can pay their monthly contributions in advance, but these are only considered for the computation of loans and benefits when the month corresponding to the payment has transpired.
SSS Retroactive Payments
Retroactive payments, or those paid after the deadline has lapsed, are disallowed.
SSS loan payments strictly follow a monthly schedule, with the cut-off date also based on the 10th digit of the member’s SS number.
Late loan payments are charged a one percent monthly penalty.
Globe GCash cannot only be used for SSS payments. GCash users can also use their virtual wallet for:
Members can deposit funds into their mobile wallet through GCash outlets, mobile phone banking and online bank transfers, among others.

According to SSS Officer-in-Charge of the Service Delivery Department Renato N. Malto, out of the P648,420 total GCash collections as of end-March 2016, nearly 80 percent were payments for contributions which amounted to P511,575 while the remaining P136,845 were for members’ loan amortizations.
“Enabling SSS payments through Globe GCash aims to capitalize on the widespread use of mobile phones which have penetrated even the most distant areas of the country. Instead of spending much time, money and effort to go to the nearest SSS branch or to our accredited partners, members can just use their mobile phones to pay their contributions and loans,” Malto said.
