    Pano kung ung company ay hnd ngpprocess ng sss contributions. I mean d sila ngkakaltas s sweldo namin. Ano pong actions dapat gawin. Maraming English On-line Teaching companies ang hindi ngcocomply s Philippine laws. Hindi rin sila ngi-issue ng employment id kaya di nmin masabi n employed kami sa mga transactions na ginagawa namin. Pwede ba mg voluntary member na lang? Thanks.

    • Lyca says:

      Yes! anyway, pag employ ka po, they should deduct monthly contribution from your salary, otherwise, you can check your contribution via online or call their customer service representative. For further assistance, please go to the nearest SSS branch in your area.

    hi,im working here now in canada jst an sss member bfore 1995-96.i pay as a self employed member now im planning to have a salary loan,then i continue paying, it possible?thank u and more power!Godbless!

    • SSS Philippines says:

      Yes it is… you’ll just have to pay the same way you did before but you’ll have to ask the SSS about matters on how much because you are now considered an OFW member… Such cases change when you change status from self-paying to another category which is working member abroad.

  • vina says:

  • leah says:

    i just want to express my frustration with sss…. na-id capture na ko nung january 2008 and nafollow up ko na sa sss and to whomever possible ang tungkol dito but very unfortunately until now 2010 na di pa rin dumarating ang id ko. sabi sa hotline nyo pag nasend na daw ninyo at may job order number na wala na kayong alam pagkatapos. anong klaseng serbisyo ba ang ibinibigay nyo sa aming mga Pilipino? napaka-on time magbayad ng conributions ng company namin pero eto kayo, you’re making us all stupid waiting for this very precious id. and now that i im planning to apply for another baka naman po pagbayarin nyo pa ulit ako na parang ako pa ang may kasalanan.

  • Sheila says:

    Ive lost my SSS ID, and I’m on the process of a status change as well from single to married. What do I need to do so my married name will appear on my SSS ID? How long will it take?

    • SSS Philippines says:

      You will have to file for a SSS change of status. Usually, if you work, you will have to get the SSS change status form from your office so that they also know about the changes on your SSS membership account as this will affect their contribution to your Social Security System remittance. In case you do not know, the system is that if you remit Php 100.00, your company will also remit their part which is of the same amount.

  • gRACE says:

    Hi, saan po ba puede magpa ID? sobrang haba kasi ng pila sa Main Office.. 4am pa lang dapat nakapila na daw?

    • SSS Philippines says:

      Hindi naman po ganoon. Actually by experience po ay mas madali ang tanghali magpagawa ng SSS ID kasi mabilis naman ang pila doon sa loob sa dami ng counters. Try nyo po para po alam din nyo… Iba iba naman po ang experience ng mga nagpapa SSS ID capture doon e.

      • monic# says:
