Always remember to monitor your posted SSS contributions.
Even if you’ve never missed a payment, your SSS benefit claim or loan application may get rejected for not meeting the number of required posted contributions.
Checking your posted contributions regularly also lets you know if your employer or anyone who pays on your behalf actually remits to the SSS.
This article presents different ways to check and verify your posted SSS contributions.
Why You Need To Check Your SSS Contributions Online
Checking your SSS contributions online regularly is a good way of harnessing the latest technology to ensure your hard-earned money goes to where it’s supposed to go.
Specifically, it helps you accomplish the following goals:
- For employed members: To make sure the employer is actually remitting the right amount of your monthly SSS contributions as promised;
- For self-employed or voluntary members: To avoid missed or incorrect payments that may often occur now that you’re paying your contributions on your own;
- For members who want to avail of SSS benefits and loans in the future: Ensure that you have the right number of contributions that will qualify you for any of the SSS benefits and loans available to members. For example, the SSS unemployment benefit is a type of insurance that will provide you with cash benefit in the event that you involuntarily loses your job. In order to qualify, you must have contributed at least 36 monthly contributions. SSS salary loan, on the other hand, requires members to have contributed at least 36 and 72 monthly contributions in order to qualify for the one-month and two-month loan, respectively.
How To Check SSS Contribution Online Through My.SSS Portal
You can easily check your contribution online through the new SSS portal. However, you must register first for a My.SSS account to access your contribution and other SSS records, all of which are confidential information.
If you haven’t done it yet, click here to learn how to register with My.SSS and create your own account. Otherwise, proceed to the step-by-step guide written below.
1. Go to the new SSS website
Access the SSS website on a web browser, preferably Google Chrome for better speed and user experience.
Unlike before when the SSS website is available in either its old or new version, this latest website has been consolidated to handle various SSS online transactions, hence eliminating the option to access your records on two different websites.
Upon landing on the homepage, a box will appear on the screen asking you to verify your identity. Put a checkmark on the box that says “I’m not a robot” and click “Submit”.
2. Access the SSS Member Portal
On the right side of the page, you’ll see three different portals to choose from: one for members, another for employers, and the third one for those who want to avail of the small business wage subsidy program of the SSS.
Since you’re an individually paying member, select “MEMBER”.
3. Log in to your My.SSS account with your user ID and password
Enter your My.SSS user ID and password in the boxes provided. Check the box that says “I’m not a robot” and click “Submit”.
In case you’ve forgotten your user ID, password, or both, click the “Forgot User ID or Password?” link to know how to reset your login credentials. For more information, read this guide.
For those who haven’t created a My.SSS account yet, there’s also a link that says “Not yet registered in My.SSS?” on the same page which you can click to get your online registration started.
4. Hover your cursor over “INQUIRY” on the main menu and select “Contributions”
This will direct you to a table showing all your contributions from the beginning of your SSS membership up to the current period.
5. Check your latest SSS contributions
You can now check your SSS contributions using the table provided. The table has four sections:
- The first tab shows an overview of all your contributions from the start of your SSS membership up to the current period. The monthly contributions are displayed in reverse chronological order.
- The second tab shows your SE/VM Contributions which are the payments received by the SSS since you changed your membership from employed to self-employed/voluntary.
- The third tab displays your SSS Flexi-Fund earnings. The Flexi-Fund is a special provident savings program exclusively open to overseas Filipino workers (OFWs).
- Finally, the fourth and last tab contains information about your contributions for the newly launched provident fund called Workers’ Investment and Savings Program (WISP). In accordance with the SSS Circular No. 2020-0321, members (except government employees) with Monthly Salary Credit (MSC) that exceeds 20,000 will be automatically enrolled to this program and pay WISP together with their regular monthly SSS contributons beginning January 2021. This mandatory provident fund will help members increase their reitrement savings so they can get more cash benefits by the time they retire.
If any month shows no value (i.e., 0.00), it means you failed to pay your contributions on time, you were unemployed, or your employer failed to remit your contributions. If you see any discrepancy, either reach out to your company’s HR department (if you’re employed) or visit the nearest SSS branch office to request correction or clarification.
