Who can use Globe Gcash? 

The GCash payment scheme is available for SSS members registered as

  • self-employed or voluntary, including non-working spouses,
  • overseas Filipino workers (OFWs), and
  • farmers and fisherfolk

When to pay your SSS Contributions

  • Self-employed and voluntary members

Self-employed and voluntary members can pay their contributions monthly or quarterly, with the payment deadline based on the 10th digit of the member’s social security or “SS” number.

The cut-off date falls on the 10th day after the applicable month or quarter if the 10th digit is 1 or 2; the 15th day if 3 or 4; the 20th day if 5 or 6; the 25th day if 7 or 8; and on the last day of the month if 9 or 0.

  • OFW Members

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.

When to pay your SSS Loans

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.

What are the other uses of Globe GCash?

Globe GCash cannot only be used for SSS payments. GCash users can also use their virtual wallet for:

  • purchasing load credits
  • shopping online
  • transferring funds
  • paying bills

Members can deposit funds into their mobile wallet through GCash outlets, mobile phone banking and online bank transfers, among others.

Do SSS members really use GCash? 

Surprisingly, yes, a lot of members have been using the Globe GCash Facility to pay their SSS Contribution and SSS Loans since it was officially rolled out in December 2015.

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.

  • GCash Customer Service Support Hotline at 739-2882
