This article is for our mom-to-be followers who are wondering if they are qualified to claim for maternity benefits from the SSS.  Often, expectant mothers who only recently began making SSS contributions, or those who missed a month or two prior to their delivery dates, are worried that they would not be able to claim assistance from SSS.

We lifted the official computation and other guidelines from the SSS website to help all female SSS members understand how maternity benefits are determined.

Read on!

The SSS Maternity Benefit

  • For normal delivery and miscarriages: 100% of member’s average daily salary credit multiplied by 60 days.
  • For caesarean section delivery: 100% of member’s average daily salary credit multiplied by 78 days.

Benefit Computation

  1. Exclude the semester of contingency (delivery or miscarriage).
    • A semester refers to two consecutive quarters ending in the quarter of delivery.
    • A quarter refers to three consecutive months ending March, June, September, or December.
  2. Count 12 months backwards starting from the month immediately before the semester of contingency.
  3. Identify the six highest monthly salary credits within the 12-month period.  The monthly salary credit means the compensation base for contributions and benefits related to the total earnings for the month.  The maximum covered earnings or compensation is Php 16,000.00 effective January 1, 2014.
  4. Add the six highest monthly salary credits to get the total monthly salary credit.
  5. Divide the total monthly salary credit by 180 days to get the average daily salary credit.  This is equivalent to the daily maternity allowance.
  6. Multiply the daily maternity allowance by 60 (for normal delivery or miscarriage) or 78 days (for caesarean section delivery) to get the total amount of maternity benefit.

Below is an example:

Let’s say the SSS member will give birth on December 2017, how do we determine the amount of maternity benefit she can expect from SSS?

  1. The semester of contingency is from July 2017 to December 2017.
  2. The 12-month period before the semester of contingency would be from July 2016 to June 2017.
  3. Assuming the six highest monthly salary credits are Php 15,000 each, then the total monthly salary credit would be Php 90,000.00 (Php15,000 x 6).
  4. The daily maternity allowance would be Php 500.00 (Php 90,000 / 180).
  5. To get the total amount of maternity benefit: multiply the daily maternity allowance by the number of days based on the type of delivery:
    • For normal delivery and miscarriages: Php 500 x 60 = Php 30,000.00
    • For caesarian section delivery: Php 500 x 78 = Php 39,000.00

Important Reminders:

  1. The SSS maternity benefit is paid to a female member for the first four deliveries and miscarriages only, by virtue of the Social Security Act of 1997 (RA 8282).
  2. Employed members shall receive the full amount of the maternity benefit within 30 days from the date of filing of the maternity leave application.  This will be given in advance by the employer (who shall then be reimbursed in full by the SSS).
  3. If the employee member gives birth or suffers a miscarriage and the required number of contributions have not been properly remitted by the employer, or if the employer fails to notify the SSS, the employer will be required to pay damages to the SSS.  Such damages shall be equivalent to the benefits that the employee should have been entitled to.
  4. Separated / voluntary / self-employed members shall be paid directly by the SSS.
  5. A female member cannot claim for sickness benefit for a period of 60 days for normal delivery or miscarriage and 78 days for caesarean delivery.  No member can be entitled to two benefits for the same period.

The moment you have confirmed that you are pregnant, notify your employer right away.  If you are a voluntary member, file the necessary papers at the SSS immediately.  This will secure the validity of your claim, whether you carry the child to full term or suffer a miscarriage (anything can happen).  It also pays to create an online SSS account so you can monitor your and your employer’s monthly contribution.

We hope this article helps all new and future mothers!

My sister, a private school teacher, gave birth in January 21, 2016 to a healthy baby boy.  I am not sure if her case can be considered a premature delivery since she gave birth three weeks earlier than her scheduled due date.  Nonetheless, her delivery was uneventful and the baby came out healthy and strong.

Less than two months after she gave birth, my sister suffered from a severe case of skin asthma.  It got so bad that she was even prohibited by her doctor to carry or cuddle her baby.  She also had difficulty breathing at night and whenever she is exposed to smoke and dust.  She was confined in the hospital for five days until her rashes cleared out.

A few days after she was discharged from confinement, she filed her sickness benefit claims from the Social Security System (SSS).  Unfortunately, her claim was denied.  This was puzzling to us as she just recently received her maternity benefits from the SSS; she had no difficulty filing and claiming the proceeds.

We tried calling the SSS but no one seems to be able to give us a plausible answer.  I did my own research and these are my findings:

  1. A female SSS member who has successfully claimed her maternity benefits is no longer eligible to claim other types of benefits within a specified period:
    • A female who gave birth through normal delivery, or had a miscarriage, cannot file for sickness benefits claim within 60 days after childbirth or miscarriage.
    • A female who gave birth through caesarean section cannot file for sickness benefits claim within 78 days after childbirth.
  2. By law, an SSS member may only receive / claim one benefit at a given time.

My sister was able to claim her maternity benefits shortly after her baby turned one month old.  This was the reason why her claim for sickness benefits was denied by the SSS.

When we got hold of this information, my sister was able to clarify her concern better with the SSS.  She was then able to confirm that due to her maternity claim, she is not eligible for sickness benefits claims until after the 60-day prescription period.

Most SSS members may not be aware of this policy and it is best that claimants clarify minor details in their claims in order to avoid confusion later on.

Now you know.

SSS Pension

As paying members of the Social Security System (SSS), we are all looking forward to that day when we can just sit back, relax, and wait for our monthly pension to arrive.  We count the years until we are prepared to retire from our jobs and finally be able to take that much needed vacation, spend quality time with our children, and no longer be bothered by “work”.  We look forward to that day when we can finally ask ourselves, “What do I do with all these free time on my hands?”

But the question we should all be asking at this point is, how much must I expect as monthly pension from the SSS and will that be enough to sustain my needs as I approach my senior years?

To help you determine your monthly pension, here is a guide lifted from the SSS website and a recent article from the Manila Bulletin.

WHAT IS YOUR SSS COVERAGE?

Are you under the Compulsory or Voluntary program of the SSS?

The Compulsory program covers employers and their employees, as well as self-employed individuals.  Their contributions are automatically deducted from their monthly salaries and remitted by their employers to SSS.

Voluntary members are OFWs, non-working spouses of SSS members, and members who have separated (resigned) from their jobs.  They pay their monthly contributions “voluntarily” by going to SSS offices or accredited payment centers.

Apart from the two programs, SSS also encourages its members to establish a separate savings account under the SSS Personal Equity and Savings Option (PESO) to add to their retirement funds.  This is a tax-free investment fund that can earn income based on interest rates of five-year Treasury yields.  At a minimum amount of Php 1,000 per month, a qualified SSS member is able to basically double his SSS savings.

HOW DO YOU COMPUTE FOR YOUR RETIREMENT PENSION?

A member’s pension is determined based on the number of credited years of service (CYS) and the number of dependent minor children.

There are three formulae that the SSS uses to compute for a member’s pension; the monthly pension will be the highest amount resulting from any of the three formulae.

  1. The sum of = Php 300.00 + 20% of the Average Monthly Salary Credit (AMSC) + 2% of the AMSC for each Credited Year of Service (CYS) in excess of 10 years, OR
  2. 40 % of the AMSC, OR
  3. Php 1,200.00 if the CYS is at least 10 but less than 20.
  4. Php 2,400 if the CYS is 20 or more.

Note: The AMSC is determined by the SSS based on your monthly compensation.  Salaries from Php 15,750 and above are assigned an AMSC of 16,000.

Example:

Using formula number 1, here is a sample computation for an individual who:

  1. Is earning Php 30,000.00 monthly
  2. Has worked and contributed to the SSS for 40 years

Monthly Pension (MP) = P300 + (20% of AMSC) + (2% of AMSC x 30 years (40 years – 10))

MP = Php 300.00 + (20% x 16,000.00) + (2% x 16,000 x 30 years)

MP = Php 300 + 3,200 + 9,600

MP = Php 13,100.00

ARE YOU QUALIFIED YET?

There are two ways to determine if you are qualified for SSS retirement benefits:

a. You are 60 years old and are no longer working or have ceased to be self-employed.  You have made at least 120 monthly contributions before the semester of retirement.

b. You are 65 years old – may be employed or not – and have made at least 120 monthly contributions before the semester of retirement.

HOW TO CLAIM YOUR SSS MONEY

There are also two ways to receive your retirement benefits:

a. Lifetime monthly pension – receive your pension monthly through the bank that you pick as your designated bank.

b. Lump sum – receive the first 18 months of your pension at a discounted rate determined by the SSS.  Your monthly pension will begin on the 19th month.

WHAT ARE THE DOCUMENTS YOU NEED TO PREPARE?

Be ready with the following IDs and documents when filing for your retirement benefits:

  1. Retirement claim application form (SSS Form DDR – 1);
  2. DDR Saving Account form;
  3. Certificate of Separation from last employer (for members less than 65 years old);
  4. Passbook (if pension);
  5. Certified true copies of birth or baptismal certificate of dependent children;
  6. Certificate of cessation of business or practice of profession (for self-employed less than 65 years old);
  7. Certified true copy of marriage certificate (if with dependent children);
  8. Proofs of filiation for illegitimate dependent children; and
  9. SSS digitized or E-6 (acknowledgment stub) with two valid IDs, one of which has a recent photo.

Non Remittance of SSS

A person’s SSS membership must be kept active at all times.  Keeping your information, contributions, and loan payments (if you have any) updated help you avoid inconveniences when claiming for your benefits later on.

But what if a member (whether employed or voluntary) or his employer fails to update the SSS contributions and payments?  What are the effects of non-reporting and non-remittance of contributions to the SSS?  Let us find out.

For Employed Members

The employees’ entitlement to his SSS benefits shall remain in spite of his employer’s failure to remit the necessary SSS contributions.

For Self-employed and Voluntary Members

It is important for self-employed individuals to know that they need to be registered members of the SSS, otherwise, they may be subjected to fines.  Voluntary and self-employed members may pay their monthly contributions on time or in advance, but not retroactively.  Meaning, if a member missed a contribution for a particular month, he cannot double his payment for the following month to cover for the month he missed.  The previous month will remain unpaid while his succeeding payments are credited to his SSS account.

For Non-working Spouses who gains employment later on (or declares himself to be self-employed or an OFW), his membership shall be re-classified but he will not be issued a new SSS number.  A member cannot have more than one SSS number; his membership may only be re-classified depending on the updates on his employment status.

For Employers

An employer is considered in violation of SSS laws if he fails to report temporary or provisional employees under his payroll.  In case he fails to remit the corresponding SSS contributions of his employees, he may be punishable by fine and / or imprisonment.  The employer is responsible to deliver the following in favor of the employee, even if he failed to remit the employee’s SSS contributions:

a. Pay the benefits of those who die, become disabled, get sick, or reach retirement age;

b. Pay all unpaid contributions plus a penalty of 3% per month.

As paying SSS members, we can regularly check the progress of our contributions and loan payments online.  You may create your online SSS account at www.sss.gov.ph

Updating SSS Information

How does an existing SSS member update his or her SSS records whenever there are changes in his personal information?

It is important to advise the SSS of any changes in your personal information, such as change in civil status, change in name, etc.  Delaying the application of the necessary updates may put your claims and benefits at risk.

Here are some reasons why SSS members seek assistance in changing their SSS records and the necessary documentary requirements they need to bring, based on the reason for updating:

a. Change in Civil Status (from Single to Married)

b. Change of Civil Status (from Married to Single)

  • If member was widowed, bring a copy of the deceased spouse’s PSA Death Certificate.
  • If member had an annulment, bring Certificate of Finality of Annulment or Decree of Divorce.

c. New / additional / change of dependents or beneficiaries

For the item on dependents and beneficiaries, below is a list of the primary beneficiaries as approved by SSS:

  • Legitimate dependent spouse until he or she remarries;
  • Dependent legitimate, legitimated, or legally adopted, and illegitimate children below 21 years old.
  • If the member is single and does not have children, the dependent parents shall be listed as secondary beneficiaries.
  • Should the member not have primary and secondary beneficiaries, he or she may designate any person as his or her beneficiary.
