SSS Online Portal – Have You Used It?

Posted on Jan 12 2016 - 10:16am by tweenselmom

It’s the beginning of the year and it’s the time when you’d like to check your financial status including your SSS contributions. If you haven’t checked or used SSS Online, I can tell you that it was greatly improved. The website became user friendly and faster to access. Although there are still a lot more steps before you can actually see your premiums paid, I can definitely say that I am a lot happier now than the previous years I’ve been logging in.

More information are also made available in the portal including downloadable forms which will save you time and hassle when you go to an SSS branch or in payment centers and they tell you they ran out of forms.

For me, it’s important that SSS has an easy to use website where the members can check if their payments were posted on time either it is for contribution or for loan payments. The transparency gives us something to look forward to and we can breathe easily knowing that we have something to get money from on our most needed times. For a work at home mom like me, it gives me at least a bit of security for the future. It really pays to pay your SSS because I know a lot of senior citizens who are benefiting from their SSS pensions these days.

If you think paying quarterly will be heavy in your pocket, try paying monthly, or try paying a lower premium rate and just amend it if your earnings can accommodate higher premiums. The important thing is that you pay regularly. For 100 contributions only, you will already be eligible for retirement pension when you reach 60. I am only reaching 40 and I have already accumulated more than that. When I look at my contributions, I see that my previous employers paid SSS well for me and that’s comforting. Now that I work at home, I try to contribute regularly. It’s a way of paying myself forward with what I earn right now.

It’s really even easier these days because I can also pay my SSS contributions at LBC and Western Union. It’s even better if you pay through Western Union because they post the payments immediately. If you pay today, your payment will be reflected online the next day.

There’s no excuse now if you really want to pay your SSS contribution regularly. Check out SSS Online Portal here.

    Good to know that they have improved their website already, very handy to those who don’t have the time to go to SSS office and line up in a very long queue wala na rin excuse not to pay regularly hehe

    Being a government worker for 9 years now, I’ve always been dependent on GSIS. But it is also good that the SSS’s systems are already upgrading. Will spread the good news to my family!

    Yes I’ve been checking my account ever since 2012 when I was waiting for my maternity benefit haha! I wish Philheath and other government sectors also have online portals (or maybe they do?)

    I stopped paying SSS contributions when I resigned from my full time job. But I’m considering paying again since I do earn as wahm now. Good to know they have a better online portal now.

    Thanks for sharing! I didn’t know there was such a site. It’s going to be very useful for sure!

    I didn’t know you can pay your SSS contributions via LBC or Western Union. Speaking of SSS, I haven’t claimed my maternity benefit yet, and my kid is already 1 year old. Hehehe.

    To be honest, I don’t trust SSS or any government services :(( But good to know that the government is making an effort to make their services easier and more convenient.

      I understand but in fairness to SSS, yung father ko, nakakakuha sya ng almost 90k lump sum after ilang decades na hindi nagpay nung maging senior citizen sya, and he gets his monthly pension naman regularly.

    It’s so great to hear that government services are improving! Some good news naman. Hehe πŸ™‚ My MIL and FIL also get their pension regularly so mukhang ok naman din.

    wow this is good to know. i wasn’t aware i could do that. will check on my contributions as soon as i get to try logging in.

    I agree with you. SSS is so important. I have claimed sick (operation) & maternity benefits (D&C due to miscarriage & 1 becuase I’m polycystic). I’ve personal loans also. My 81 y/o mom is also a pensioner as a widow (from my dad’s) cobtribution. We weren’t expecting that my dad, when he was still alive, will still get sick benefit, even if he had just made few years contribution when he was still young. I suggest tht if we couldn”t afford to pay for an insurance, start with your SSS contribution. It helps a lot.

    Yes, I’ve been using the online portal and I found that they have not yet updated some of my contribution details. Good think I can check it every now and then.

    I am a voluntary contributor in SSS so I used to access portal to make sure that my contribution went thru.. I also used to access it for my father’s account.. He used to ask me to check his pension status every month!

    Wow this is great news, actually it seems like eons ago since the last time I checked my sss online. I hated their former site, it was old and always down. I think I’d be more inclined to check my sss now that they’ve improved their portal.

  28. Mommy Kach March 3, 2016 at 7:13 am - Reply

    I can remember when their portal was practically useless. Good thing they were able to have it updated. About time to be honest πŸ™‚

    Wow this is good news.. The last time i checked their site a year ago it was always down. Then i would have to go to the nearest office and queue for hours just to checkmy contributions and then pay. Will check this out! Thanks mommy! ☺️
