Are you an SSS member but don’t have a My.SSS account yet? Better do it now to reap the benefits of this SSS online service facility. Know all about My.SSS and the steps to online registration in this quick guide.
My.SSS is an easy-to-use online service portal of the SSS website (1) that enables registered SSS members to conveniently and safely access their social security records online.
To use this SSS online facility, all you need is a smartphone, tablet, laptop, or computer that’s connected to the internet. That means you can do transactions with the SSS anytime and anywhere without going through the hassle of going to a branch and standing in long lines.
It’s mainly for your convenience. Using an online My.SSS account can save you a lot of time, energy, and stress because you can transact with SSS in the comfort of your own home or go beyond the usual office hours.
SSS also requires its members to go through the online registration process to ensure security (and prevent identity theft) when they transact with SSS through the internet.
SSS encourages all members to register for an online account at My.SSS. You can sign up for an online SSS account if you belong to any of the following:
Creating an SSS online account is effortless if you follow the My.SSS registration procedure correctly. But before you start, make sure to use Internet Explorer 11 as your web browser. The SSS site may not work properly with other browsers such as Google Chrome and Mozilla Firefox.
Once you’ve successfully installed IE 11, you can proceed with your SSS online registration.
When you’re done, double-check all information. Click the Submit button. A short message will appear to confirm the successful submission of your enrollment for SSS online registration. Click OK.
After you submit your My.SSS web registration application, SSS will validate your info against its records. If they match, you’ll receive an email from firstname.lastname@example.org after half an hour. The message contains an activation link and your user ID.
If the email address you provided is not Yahoo Mail (e.g., Gmail, Hotmail, etc.), check your Spam folder if you can’t find the SSS email in your main inbox.
Once you receive the email from SSS, click on the activation link. You need to activate your account immediately up to five days. Or else, the activation link will expire, and you will have to register again.
Clicking on the link will direct you to a page where you’ll be required to create a password and re-type to confirm it. Be sure your password meets these requirements:
When you’re done, click the Submit button. If the two passwords match, you will be directed immediately to your My.SSS account.
Sometimes, SSS members who tried to register to My.SSS would receive an email message about their registration failure. It happens when the system finds inconsistencies in the submitted information versus the SSS records. It could also be that the required format isn’t followed.
When your SSS online registration is unsuccessful, you may try doing it again using another registration option (refer to Step 1.) Or you can email SSS at email@example.com for assistance.
