Is your employer remitting the SSS, Pag-IBIG, and PhilHealth government contributions being deducted from your salary?

If your answer is “I don’t know” or “I’m not sure” then it’s time to start monitoring your government contributions You need to confirm if your company is up to date in remitting the correct amount of your premium payments to SSS, Pag-IBIG, and PhilHealth.

These government agencies require all employers in the Philippines to remit their employees’ contribution payments every month or quarter. However, some employers don’t remit their workers’ government contributions[1]. Even if payroll deductions are reflected on your monthly payslip, they aren’t an assurance that your employer actually pays your contributions.

Check your SSS, PhilHealth, and Pag-IBIG contributions regularly. Yours should be up-to-date and remitted correctly, so you can qualify for housing and salary loans from SSS or Pag-IBIG anytime you need to borrow money for your short-term needs. This will also prevent delays in your benefit and loan processing.

Final Thoughts

When you check your Pag-IBIG, PhilHealth, and SSS government contributions, you’ll see if there are years or months without posted contribution payments. In that case, notify your employer about it and ask about the discrepancies. Your company should be able to take action immediately; otherwise, it will have to face penalties for violating the law[2]. If your employer takes too long to resolve the issue on your contribution remittances, you can report it to the concerned agency (Pag-IBIG, PhilHealth, or SSS.)
