As an entrepreneur, HR officer, or someone who employs household workers, you know how tedious it can be to transact with multiple government agencies. So many reports to process and submit, so little time. Good thing, the Social Security System (SSS) has an online facility that literally does away with the paperwork for the extremely busy employer in the Philippines. All you have to do is to register for a My.SSS or an SSS online employer account.

For companies, employers, and HR officers, My.SSS offers a wide range of benefits, making transactions with SSS a lot more convenient and cost-efficient.
Without having to leave your office (or hire someone to transact on your behalf) and wasting time in long lines, you can access your SSS employer records and submit multiple reports in a matter of clicks and keystrokes.
If you’re registered at My.SSS as an employer, you’ll be able to do all these quickly and easily as long as you have a stable internet connection:
Go to the SSS Online Employer User ID Registration page. It’s best to use Internet Explorer (IE) 11 when accessing the SSS website.
Fill out properly all the required fields on this online form. The second field, which is the “Date Coverage,” refers to the date when you hired your first employee/s. You can find this data on your SS Form R-1 (Employer Registration Form) or Registration Plate.
To avoid issues and delays in your SSS online employer registration, double-check the details you’ve provided and make sure they match your SSS records.
When you’re done, enter the captcha code and click Submit.
Your registration info submission is successful if all the details you provided are correct and match your SSS records. You will then receive a message that an account activation email has been delivered to your company email address. Proceed to the next step.
However, if you can’t send your My.SSS registration info and you get an error message, that may mean you already have a pending registration for SSS validation or you have a previously approved registration. In this case, you can call the SSS hotline (920-6446 to 55) for assistance.
Check your inbox for an email from SSS that contains a link for verifying your My.SSS account (if you can’t find the message, try checking your Spam folder.) Click on that link to access another online form where you’ll provide your data as an employer or your authorized signatory:
Have you already created an SSS online account as a member? To avoid problems with your online employer account registration, be sure to use the information you supplied to that account.
When you’ve completed this step, you’ll get a message that your registration has been submitted to SSS for verification. You’ll know the results via email.
After submitting your online employer registration information, your SSS servicing branch will check if your signatory appears on your company’s Specimen Signature Card (SS Form L-501). Once the SSS branch approves or confirms your employer authorized signatory, SSS will send a message with your company user ID and password to your company email address.
As soon as you receive the user ID and password, you can already use them to access your My.SSS account. Make sure to log in to the Employer Login section, which is separate from Member Login.
If your SSS servicing branch doesn’t approve your authorized signatory, you’ll be informed about the unsuccessful registration and the reason for rejection via email.
In such a case, contact SSS for assistance through these channels:
You can also reach SSS via those channels if you haven’t heard from them since you’ve submitted your registration and you want to verify its status.
Government agencies like the SSS have made transacting with them a lot easier and faster, thanks to the internet. Take advantage of the convenience and speed of using your own SSS online employer account. Start by signing up for a My.SSS account now.
