The Social Security System (SSS) is an independent agency of the Philippine Government that administers Social Security, a social insurance program consisting of Sickness, Maternity, Retirement, Disability, Death & Funeral, and Short Term Loans. To qualify for these benefits, most Filipino workers pay Social Security contribution through Compensation Income or Income derived from Self Employment. The future benefits are based on the employees’ contributions.
Being a member of SSS, awareness should be practiced to make sure that our precious contribution is directly credited to our individual accounts. There are lots of cases wherein an Employer skips, intentionally or otherwise,the employee’s contribution to SSS. To prevent this from happening, everyone is advised to verify their contributions. To do this, SSS opened its service to the masses by providing us My.SSS. It is a self service portal provided to every SSS member to exclusively access their contribution and membership records.
A good friend of mine asked me how to use this, I said, “…just google it on how to”. He replied to me, “I can’t find a decent tutorial for this, kid”. To cut the story short, here I am, making a more “decent and comprehensive” tutorial on how to verify/check your total actual contribution in SSS and other matters that, I think, is useful inside the SSS Website.
If you know how to use Facebook, SSS Online is just like commenting on a senseless post.
First Things First!
Before we start, you need few things first. I need you to have the following:
- Your SSS Number – you can get it in your machine-validated SSS E1 Form (usually in pink colored paper with few machine-validated numbers and inked stamped and of course your thumb marks.) Without this, forget about this blog. I’m sorry to say that you can’t continue your SSS online registration.
- A Valid Email Address – SSS.Gov.PH will email the default password to open your account. You can change the given password to anything you like after your first successful log in.
You have everything that we need, So Let’s Go! I need you to go visit SSS.Gov.PH. When you arrive at the website, in the menu bar, look for “My.SSS”. It will show a list, Select and Click “Register”. Having trouble already? Just follow the image below:
Right after clicking the “Register” button, it will lead you to this page. Select if you are a Member (Employees, mostly) or Employer.
We’re ready now to fill up the online form: Fill the necessary details and be careful, enter the correct personal information. The form includes: Your SS Number, First Name, Middle Name, Last Name, Date of Birth, your valid Email Address and the random word written inside the box (Captcha).
When you received your password, go back to SSS.Gov.Ph User Log In Page. Use the log in details indicated in the email sent by the SSS Website. When you successfully logged in to your account, this page will appear.
We’ll go straight to Online Inquiry, click it to Start verifying your SSS Contribution. It will open a new window that looks like this one:
Under “Member Info” go to “Actual Premiums”.
The website will instantly show you your Total Actual Contributions remitted by your current employer and your previous employer (if applicable). In my case, I started working January 2004 and every month starting 2004 is properly remitted and reflected in my records, I can say that it’s correct knowing that my monthly contribution is P1,560.
Loan Status And Loan Eligibility
My.SSS comes has many purpose. It also provides us other important informations such as Loan Status and Loan Eligibility. This part is very helpful especially to those members who’s planning to apply for a loan or have an existing loan. In Loan Status, you can see the details of your loan including the Loan Balance, Loan Amortization and Terms. In my case, I don’t have a loan as of now.
To access this part, simply click “Loan Status” in the Menu.
We have successfully registered an account in SSS.Gov.PH and verified my SSS Contributions and Loan. We made it, make some noise!
