Have you been wanting to check your SSS contributions online but couldn’t do so because you’re not yet registered?
Don’t worry, because in this post, I’ll share with you the 7 easy steps to register to My.SSS based from my own experience.
Yes, that’s right. I just registered my mom’s SSS account online and the process was pretty quick and simple.
And that’s exactly why I want to share it with you too. Let’s start…
7 Easy Steps for SSS Online Registration
Go to sss.gov.ph. Click the ‘Click Here’ button under ‘Not Yet Registered in My.SSS’ (see screenshot below).
To register as SSS member online, you need to choose one of the information below:
- Savings Account Number
- Mobile Number Registered in SSS
- UMID Card
- Employer ID Number
- Payment Reference Number
Since my mom has just recently paid her SSS loan and she still has a copy of the Payment Receipt from SSS, we chose the option for Payment Receipt Transaction Number.
In the Online User ID Registration, enter all the required information correctly.
After you filled out the form, enter the code in the blank box at the bottom of the page, then tick the smaller box to accept the Terms of Service, and finally click Submit.
Upon successful registration, a confirmation message will show up on the screen which looks like the screenshot below.
The system notification will be sent to within 30 minutes. I got mine only after 5 minutes.
Check your inbox to see if the system notification from SSS is already there.
The subject of the email is SSS Web Registration and it should come from firstname.lastname@example.org.
Open the email and look for the User ID and the link to activate your My.SSS account.
Make sure to activate your account within 5 working days, otherwise, the activation link will expire and you will have to repeat the registration process.
Below your User ID, click the Activation Link. It will redirect you to another page where you’re going to set your Password. Make sure to follow these guidelines:
- Length – must be 8-20 alpha-numeric characters.
- First character – must be alphabetic.
- No special characters – must be different from the User ID
Once your password is updated, you will automatically be logged in to your SSS online account.
