How to Change or Update SSS Member Data Record

When I got married, one of the first things I did was to update my personal information in my company and in government agencies where I am a member of like the SSS.

Good thing the procedure was really simple, although I had to line up at the SSS branch since there were many other people who were doing the same thing too.

What I did was I filled out the SSS E-4 form or Members Data Amendment form and updated my information such as my last name and the beneficiaries. As proof for these changes, I submitted a photocopy of our Marriage Certificate and the birth certificate of my child to add her as beneficiary.

If you want to update your data with the SSS, check out the steps and requirements below.
