Gone are the days when you have to endure lining up on government offices to secure necessary documents or inquire about a certain benefit, nowadays, a lot of government agencies are taking advantage of the internet to cater the needs of their members and beneficiaries.
One of the agencies that recently went digital is the Social Security System (SSS), aside from securing your Payment Reference Number (PRN) through their website, a member could now view their contribution status through the use of the internet.
It is very important to regularly check your SSS contribution; if you are employed this is one way to verify if your employer if remitting the exact amount of your contribution on time while if you a voluntary member, checking your contribution online will let you know if you have an incorrect payment or if you missed a particular month.
Through this contribution, you will be able to avail the benefits of SSS including salary loan, housing loan, maternity and sickness benefits, and more.
To avoid spending hours lining up in SSS offices just to verify your contribution, you may opt to check it online through the SSS website by simply following the steps below:
STEP 1: Visit the SSS website
To be able to check your contribution online, you must have a My.SSS account, if you do not have an online account yet you can sign up for it in just a few minutes (depending on your internet connection speed).
The SSS website works best through the Internet Explorer 11 browser, but if you have a different browser like Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, or Safari, just follow the message prompt that will appear on your screen once you visit www.sss.gov.ph.
STEP 2: Log into your My.SSS account
Once you’ve successfully signed up, just simply log in using the login panel on the SSS homepage that you will see on the right side. Under the “Member Login” enter your My.SSS account’s user ID and password.
If you have an existing My.SSS account and could no longer remember the password your nominated, just simply click the “Forget User ID or Password” button and follow the instruction to be able to get an instruction to retrieve or change your password which will be sent on your registered email.
STEP 3: Go to Member Inquiry Page
Hover your mouse pointer to the “E-Services” button and select “Inquiry”. Once the Member Inquire page showed up, you will be able to view your SSS membership information.
STEP 4: Go to Actual Premiums Page
Hover your mouse to the “Member Info” bar and select “Actual Premiums” and viola, you can now see your contributions or the actual premiums that you have remitted since you started working or became an SSS member.
The year, month, and exact amount paid will be shown on this page. If a certain month shows 0.00, it means that you have no posted contribution during that time; it’s either you are unemployed during that period or your employer has failed to remit your contribution on that month.
The Actual Premiums page will also show your total number of SSS contribution posted and the total amount you have remitted.
Should there be inconsistencies in your contribution records, you may check it with your employer’s Human Resource Department or if you are a voluntary member, you can call SSS and clarify such discrepancy.
