How To Update Your Information In Your My.SSS Account

.

Updating your personal information in your SSS records is now a lot easier, thanks to the My.SSS website and mobile app. In today’s blog, we are going to provide you with the step-by-step process on how to update or change your name (in case you need to apply simple corrections on your name’s spelling or update your last name after you got married), correct your gender, change your membership type, and update your list of beneficiaries.

Some, if not all, of the changes and corrections will require you to upload supporting documents and IDs to validate your request. It is best that you are prepared with the required documents before you begin applying the changes and corrections. A most common document required by the SSS for such changes are your PSA birth certificate and PSA marriage certificate. You may get copies of these certificates online at PSAHelpline.ph.

Also, you have to have a My.SSS account in order to

How to Apply Corrections on Your Name:

  1. Log-on to your My.SSS account. If you do not have a My.SSS account, read my blog on how to create one: How To Create A My.SSs Account.
  2. Click on the E-Services link (found on the Main Menu bar on the top of the page). From the dropdown list, choose Request for Member Data Change (Simple Correction).
  3. Tick Name
  4. Key-in all the information needed for the name change request. You may apply corrections to your name (if name is misspelled), you may also update your last name if you recently got married (or annulled and want to drop your husband’s last name from your SSS records).
  5. Upload the corresponding supporting documents (these will vary, depending on the type of correction or name update that you are requesting for). File size must not be more than 2MB and the copies must be clear and readable to avoid delays to your request.
  6. Click the box This is to certify that all information and documents presented are true and then click the Submit button.
  7. You will be issued a transaction number (this will be displayed on your screen). Take a screenshot of this or jot it down for reference. This will be asked of you when you make a follow up on your request.
  8. SSS will send you an email informing you of the submitted request. You will be updated of the status through email as well. You can only request for one data change at a time. You need to wait until your current request is fulfilled before applying for a new one (in case you have multiple items you need to update in your account).

How to change your marital status.

If after getting married you choose to use your husband’s last name and update your civil status to married, you can do so online through the My.SSS. This is also applicable to women who were widowed or whose marriage was annulled — reverting back to your maiden last name and changing your marital status to widowed or legally separated or single.

  1. Log-on to your My.SSS account.
  2. Under the E-Services link in the menu, choose Request for Member Data Change (Simple Correction).
  3. Choose the detail you wish to change or update, key-in all the needed information, and upload the supporting documents.
  4. Take note of your transaction number.
  5. SSS will send an email informing you of your request. You may be asked to validate your request (through the email), before your request is worked on by SSS.

How to apply corrections on the gender field.

  1. Log-on to your My.SSS account.
  2. Choose E-Services in the menu and select Request for Member Data Change (Simple Correction).
  3. Select Correction of Sex from the list of items for correction and provide the correct entry. Upload the required supporting documents.
