What is SSS Calamity Loan?
The SSS Calamity Loan Assistance Program or CLAP is a financial assistance given to SSS members who have been affected by the Covid-19 pandemic.
Depending on the average of your monthly salary credit in the last 12 months, you may apply for a loan of up to ₱20,000.
You may apply for the CLAP from June 15, 2020 until September 14, 2020.

Nakapag-file na po ako ng calamity loan noong Aug 3, 2020. Granted na po pero blocked po yung ATM ko sa Landbank ano po ba dapat gawin, need ko po ng pera
- Sa pagkakataon na kayo ay qualified na mag avail pareho ng Calamity Loan Assistance Program (CLAP) at Salary Loan, kinakailangan ninyong unahin ang pag avail ng Salary Loan at antayin ang approval nito bago mag apply muli ng CLAP. Ito ay upang maiwasan ang automatic deduction ng short-term member loan, gaya ng CLAP, na isa sa mga terms and conditions ng aming Salary Loan Program.
Kapag nauna po i-file ang calamity loan bago salary loan, binabawas po ba talaga yung CLAP amount sa net proceeds ng SL? So ang kaltas po nito yung SL lang dahil paid na with interest yung CLAP? Di po ba dapat wala na interest yun bilang ni hindi po umabot sa deduction date and full payment nung CLAP?
- Base po sa terms and conditions ng Salary Loan renewal, kasama pong maibabawas bilang outstanding previous loan balance ang naunang naaprubahan na Calamity Loan.
Yung Calamity Loan ko nabayaran ko na nung nag loan po ako ng Salary. Tapos now mag loloan po ako ng Calamity hindi po ako makapag loan kasi may existing balance po sa Calamity ko na bayad na. Paano po gagawin ko para makapag loan po ako ng Calamity?
- Upang makapag-apply ng Calamity Loam-Covid 19, kinakailangan po na kayo ay mayroong online account sa My SSS (www.sss.gov.ph)
