Knowing how to verify your SSS contribution regularly is worth the time and trouble. Here’s why: 

  • If you’re employed by a company, you need to ensure that your employer is actually remitting the correct amount and doing it without delays.
  • For self-employed or voluntary members, monitoring your SSS contributions will let you immediately know if you have any missed or incorrect payments so that you can make the necessary adjustments as early as possible.
  • If you’re planning to apply for an SSS Salary Loan or SSS calamity loan, or claim other member benefits like SSS disability and SSS unemployment benefits, checking your contributions online can help you evaluate whether you’re eligible or not. 

Why should you be meticulous about your contribution payments? To qualify for an SSS loan or benefit, you must meet the minimum monthly contributions within a certain period.

For example, you need at least 36 posted monthly contributions within the last 12 months when applying for an SSS loan.

If you avail of a sickness or maternity benefit,[1] you need 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.

3. How do I pay SSS contributions using the SSS Mobile App?

If you're an OFW or Voluntary SSS member, you can log in to the SSS Mobile App and generate a Personal Reference Number (PRN). This will allow you to pay for your monthly contribution using your preferred payment method. Just tap on Generate PRN, select the membership type and the applicable period, and tap Submit.

Employer failure to pay SSS contributions is punishable with a fine of not less than ₱5,000 and not more than ₱20,000 or imprisonment for six to 12 years at the discretion of the court.[3] 

You can report a delinquent employer to the SSS by visiting the nearest SSS branch. If you’ve already talked to your employer or the HR department and still no actions were made, you can file a complaint at any SSS branch.  

6. What should I do if my latest SSS contribution hasn’t been posted yet?

Self-employed and voluntary members may have to wait for three days before payments are posted. If your payment hasn't been posted after a month, you may email PRNHelpLine@sss.gov.ph.

7. Can I still pay for missed SSS contributions?

The SSS doesn’t allow retroactive payments. You’ll still be entitled to SSS benefits even if you miss a monthly contribution. However, note that certain benefits require a number of contributions before a contingency for members to be eligible.  

8. I lost my job. How can I continue paying my SSS contribution?

You’ll be recategorized as a self-employed or voluntary member. Just log in to your My.SSS account and generate a Payment Reference Number to pay for your contributions. 

You can also set your preferred monthly contribution. Submit a request to the SSS via the portal, and you’ll be notified once you can begin paying your contributions again.
