In the past, tracking one’s monthly SSS contributions used to involve visiting an SSS branch or calling the agency’s hotline for self-employed workers and coordinating with the HR department for employees.
Those were the days, fortunately. Today, you can view your SSS contributions online via the Social Security System website. You can do it in less than five minutes, depending on your actual internet connection speed. No more follow-ups, stressful commutes, or falling in line.
Here’s a quick guide on how to check SSS contributions online.

Verifying your monthly premium contributions regularly is worth the time and trouble.
Why should you be meticulous about your contribution payments? To qualify for an SSS loan or benefit, you need to meet the required minimum monthly contributions within a certain period.
For example, when you apply for an SSS loan, you need to have at least 36 posted monthly contributions within the last 12 months.
If you will avail of a sickness or maternity benefit, SSS requires at least three monthly contributions within 12 months immediately before the semester of sickness, injury, or childbirth. These are just some of the important reasons why you have to learn how to check your SSS contributions online.
You need to have a My.SSS account before you can continue with your SSS contribution inquiry online. If you don’t have it yet, check our step-by-step guide on SSS Online Registration. Once you’ve successfully registered for an online SSS account, you can proceed with these steps to view your SSS contribution online.
Access the SSS website at www.sss.gov.ph. Upon entering the website, an “I’m not a robot” pop up will appear. Make sure to check the box and click ‘Submit’.
You will see three buttons on the right panel of the SSS website’s homepage: Member, Employer, and Small Business Wage Subsidy Program. Click ‘Member.’ A new page will then appear. Provide your My.SSS User ID and Password here.
If you forgot your user ID or password, click on “Forgot User ID or Password?” under the Submit button. You’ll see a page where you’ll have to enter your user ID (if you forgot only your password) or your email address (if you forgot both your user ID and password.) Click Submit and check your email for instructions from SSS about the retrieval or reset of your My.SSS account login details.
Hover your mouse to the Inquiry menu (beside Home and Member Info) and click ‘Contributions’. This will show all your monthly SSS contributions paid since the year you started as an SSS member.
You’ll also see which months have no posted contribution. This may mean you’re unemployed during those months or your employer has not remitted your contributions yet.
Scroll down to view your total number of SSS contributions posted and your total amount of contributions paid. You can save and print this page if you want.
When you see any inconsistencies or discrepancies in your SSS contribution online, ask your HR department about it (if you’re employed) or make the needed corrections (if you’re self-employed.) That way, you won’t encounter problems when you apply for an SSS loan or benefit claim.

If you need quick access to your SSS Contribution online, download the official SSS mobile app available for iOS and Android devices. From there, you can use your My.SSS credentials to login and check your contributions. Follow the same instructions above.

Now that you know how to check SSS contributions online, make sure to log out properly after doing so.
