SSS Salary Loan Application, Requirements, Payment, Interest Rates and FAQs

Applying for SSS salary loan is one of the benefits that qualified SSS members can enjoy.

Many SSS members take advantage of the SSS salary loan because it’s not only easy to file but it’s also affordable to pay.

If you have a financial emergency or you need cash immediately, you may apply for SSS salary loan, provided you meet the following criteria or eligibility requirements:

  • You are an SSS member
  • You are below 65 years old at the time of application
  • You have made at least 36 months contributions to the SSS if you’re applying for a 1-month salary loan
  • You have made at least 72 months contributions to the SSS if you’re applying for a 2-month salary loan
  • You have made at least 6 months contributions in the last twelve months

If you have other existing loans from the Philippine Social Security System, make sure that your payments are up-to-date.

If you’re employed, make sure that your employer remits your monthly contributions and loan payments. You may ask your HR officer about these or you may login to My.SSS to access your SSS contributions and statement of loan balances.

Also, make sure that you have not been granted any final benefits like retirement benefit to apply for a salary loan from the SSS.

How much can you get from your SSS Salary Loan
