Have you been involuntarily separated from your job?  Were you laid off, or your designation has been dissolved and resulted in your losing your job and source of income?  Take heart.  The Social Security System (SSS) is ready to help you get back on your feet!

The SSS recently announced the availability of the SSS Unemployment Benefit for all members that have been involuntarily removed from their jobs.  This is part of the provisions of RA 11199 or the Social Security Act of 2018.

What is the SSS Unemployment Benefit?

This is the seventh benefit program of the SSS and is available to all member-applicants who have been removed from their jobs (fired, laid-off, offered separation by employer).  It is a cash benefit equivalent to half of their average monthly salary credit (AMSC) for a maximum of two months.

Who is covered by the Unemployment Benefit?

All SSS members who are involuntarily separated from employment, including OFWs and Kasambahays may file for Unemployment Benefit claims.  Some exceptions are:

  • Employees must not be over 60 years of age at the time of the involuntary separation;
  • Underground mine workers must not be over 50 years of age;
  • Racehorse jockeys should not be over 55 years old.

What are the conditions for claiming the Unemployment Benefit?

  • The covered employee must have paid at least 36 monthly contributions
  • 12 months of which should be in the 18-month period immediately preceding the month of involuntary separation.
  • Must not have settled unemployment insurance or involuntary separation benefit within the last three years prior to the involuntary separation from employment.
  • The reason for separation from employment must not be the fault of the employee or a result of the employee’s negligence.  The only acceptable cases are redundancy, retrenchment or downsizing, closure of operations, the commission of a crime or offense of the employer against the employee or any of his immediate family members, and inhuman or unbearable treatment by the employer.  The DOLE determines the acceptable reasons for involuntary separation.
  • An employee applying for unemployment benefits may be disqualified if he or she has shown serious misconduct, willful disobedience to lawful orders, as well as gross and habitual neglect of duties.

What are the limitations of the Unemployment Benefits?

A member that has been involuntarily separated from his job must file his claim within one year from the date of his separation.

A covered employee may only claim once every three years starting from the date of involuntary separation.  In case he has more than one compensable contingency within the same period, only the highest benefit shall be paid.

What are the requirements when filing a claim for Unemployment Benefits?

  • Original and photocopy of one primary ID card or
  • Any two ID cards or documents, both with signature and at least one with photo
  • Certification establishing the nature of involuntary separation issued by the Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE) through its regional office
  • Notice of Termination from Employer or
  • Affidavit of Termination of Employment

Applicants may file their claims at any SSS branch.

How will the funds be released to the member?

The SSS shall pay the member through the SSS Unified Multi-purpose ID (UMID) cards enrolled as ATM or through the Union Bank of the Philippines Quick Card account.

All involuntary separations that happened on March 5, 2019, onwards are covered by the unemployment insurance.

9 Sept 2b

Last week, we discussed the basic information about the Employees’ Compensation Program or ECP.  Most private employees are not aware that there is an ECP that works like insurance for employees and workers that is why we decided to feature this topic.

Today, we will continue with more information such as who can be identified as beneficiaries of an employee under the ECP and how to file EC claims.  All these information are lifted from the ecc.gov.ph website.

Read on.

  1. In case an employee dies, who shall receive the income benefits to which he is entitled to?

Benefit recipients are the employee’s beneficiaries.

  1. Who are the employee’s beneficiaries?

The beneficiaries shall be either primary or secondary and determined at the time of the employee’s death.

The following beneficiaries shall be considered primary:

  1. The legitimate spouse living with the employee at the time of the employee’s death until he remarries; and
  2. Legitimate, legitimated, legally adopted or acknowledged natural children, who are unmarried, not gainfully employed, not over 21 years of age, or over 21 years of age provided he is incapacitated and incapable of self-support due to physical or mental defect which is congenital or acquired during minority.

The following beneficiaries shall be considered secondary:

  1. The legitimate parents wholly dependent upon the employee for regular support;
  2. The legitimate descendants and illegitimate children who are unmarried, not gainfully employed, not over 21 years of age, or over 21 years of age provided he in incapacitated and incapable of self-support due to physical or mental defect which is congenital or acquired during minority.

Primary beneficiaries shall have a priority claim to death benefits over secondary beneficiaries.  Whenever there are primary beneficiaries, no death benefit shall be paid to his secondary beneficiaries.

  1. When shall EC claims be filed?

EC claims must be filed within the period of three years from:

  • In case of sickness, from the time the employee was unable to report for work;
  • In case of injury, from the time of the incident;
  • In case of death, from the date of death.

The filing of disability or death benefits either under the SSS law or the GSIS law within three years from the time the cause of action accrued would stop the running of the prescriptive period.

  1. Where are EC claims filed?

All EC claims may be filed by the claimant at his option in the GSIS regional office (for employees in the public sector) or SSS branch (for employees in the private sector), nearest to his place of work or residence.

As employees, especially those in the private sector, must make sure that the employer is regularly paying the employee’s EC contributions.  This is the best way to ensure that you can claim from the ECC later on.

I have been receiving a lot of questions on how a female SSS member can check (on her own) if she is eligible for maternity benefits from SSS. This is aside from the longer maternity leave days granted to all SSS female members this year.

I noticed too that most of those who are asking have had some months when they failed to pay their SSS contributions and are now worried that this may be the cause of their ineligibility to claim maternity benefits.

So I did some research to find the best (and easiest!) way to check if a female SSS member is eligible for the SSS maternity benefit.  What I am sharing with you today is from the SSSPH.NET website but the actual concept for eligibility is based on SSS’ policies for maternity benefits.

Basically, the SSS requires that the member has paid AT LEAST 3 monthly contributions within the 12 months IMMEDIATELY BEFORE the semester of delivery.

To better illustrate this, see the examples below:

a. If your month of delivery is January, February, or March (refer to months in italics), you are eligible if you have paid contributions for three months within the previous October to September (refer to the months in capital letters):

Jan         Feb        Mar        Apr         May       Jun

Jul           Aug        Sep        OCT        NOV      `DEC

JAN        FEB         MAR      APR        MAY      JUN

JUL         AUG      SEP         Oct         Nov        Dec

Jan         Feb         Mar       Apr         May       Jun

 

b. If your month of delivery is April, May, or June (refer to months in italics), you are eligible if you have paid contributions for three months within the previous January to December (refer to months in capital letters):

JAN        FEB         MAR      APR        MAY      JUN

JUL         AUG      SEP         OCT        NOV      DEC

Jan         Feb        Mar        Apr         May       Jun

Jul           Aug        Sep        Oct         Nov        Dec

Jan         Feb        Mar        Apr         May       Jun

 

c. If your month of delivery is July, August, or September (refer to months in italics), you are eligible if you have paid contributions for three months within the previous April to March (refer to months in capital letters):

Jan         Feb      Mar        APR        MAY      JUN

JUL         AUG      SEP         OCT        NOV      DEC

JAN        FEB         MAR      Apr         May       Jun

Jul           Aug        Sep         Oct         Nov        Dec

Jan         Feb        Mar        Apr         May       Jun

 

d. If your month of delivery is October, November, or December (refer to months in italics), you are eligible if you have paid contributions for three months within the previous July to June (refer to months in capital letters):

Jan         Feb        Mar        Apr         May       Jun

JUL         AUG      SEP         OCT        NOV      DEC

JAN        FEB         MAR      APR        MAY      JUN

Jul           Aug        Sep        Oct         Nov        Dec

Jan         Feb        Mar        Apr         May       Jun

 

I hope this helped all our female followers.  If you have more questions about maternity benefits, you can send us an email or post your questions on the SSS Facebook page facebook.com/SSSPh/.

I found this super helpful article in Rappler that I think will help this year’s high school and college graduates secure their government IDs and other documents that are required when applying for a job.  When I was a fresh graduate myself, I dreaded making trips to government offices because of the long lines and wait time.  I remember when I applied for my Pag-IBIG number, I had to make two trips to their main office because I did not have a copy of my (NSO) birth certificate when I first came!  Imagine the hassle!

If I had this list then, I would have been able to secure all my IDs and membership numbers in less than five days.  So for those of you who are just getting a head start on this thing called adulating, here’s something that I hope can help you.

SSS:

  1. Prepare the required documents.

For the complete list of required documents to secure an SSS number, please visit their website at www.sss.gov.ph.  But let me tell you now, you need an original copy of your PSA birth certificate when securing an SSS number. You can order at www.psahelpline.ph and have it delivered to you instead.

  1. Accomplish the online form.

You’ll need a working and accessible email account so make sure yours is working.  SSS will send a link to your email address and they will ask for further details from you (to verify that you truly are who you say you are).  The link will expire in 5 days so do check your email diligently and reply as soon as you can.

  1. Review your details.

Always double check the entries you made on the form before hitting the “submit” button.  When sure, click the Generate SSS number button.

  1. Print a copy of the documents and bring these to the nearest SSS branch.

Along with your PSA birth certificate and other requirements, submit the print-out to the nearest SSS branch.  Make sure to bring photocopies, just in case.

PhilHealth:

  1. Prepare copies of accomplished PhilHealth Member Registration Form (PMRF) and two copies of your latest 1×1 ID photos.
  2. Bring two valid IDs or a copy of your PSA birth certificate.

Submit all of the above to PhilHealth in order to get your PhilHealth number.

 

NBI:

You can now apply for an NBI clearance online.  Just follow these simple steps:

  1. Log on to nbi-clearance.com and register to a new account.
  2. Fill out the online form and click the I accept the Terms of Service box; read the terms and then click the I agree button.
  3. Wait for your account confirmation and as soon as it is activated, fill out the form and save your information.
  4. You may now secure an appointment with the NBI.
  5. Indicate the type of ID you will be bringing to your appointment. Make sure that this is a valid ID.
  6. Choose the date and NBI branch where you want to get your clearance. And then choose the mode of payment you prefer for your reservation.
  7. Pay the required fee and then log back to the website to register your account. You will see if your payment has been posted already: the status will either be paid (payment has posted) or pending (payment has not yet posted). Save a copy of the application form or take a screenshot with your phone; make sure that the reference number is clear and readable.
  8. On the date of your appointment, proceed to your chosen NBI branch and bring 2 valid IDs that you declared in your application, as well as the NBI clearance payment receipt.
  9. Upon reaching the NBI office, proceed to the image capturing section and biometrics so they can collect your information.
  10. The staff will ask you to review all your information before printing. If you do not have a “hit”, you will be able to get your clearance immediately. If you have a “hit” (meaning records match your name), you will have to wait for a few more days before you are issued your clearance.

Pag-IBIG:

Just like the SSS, you can now register online to apply for a Pag-IBIG membership.

  1. Log on to the Pag-IBIG website at www.pagibigfund.gov.ph and click the online registration link. You will be taken to a page where you need to key in your details.
  2. After you have double-checked that all entries are correct, submit your online form and wait for your Registration Tracking Number.
  3. Your Registration Tracking Number will serve as your temporary number while you are waiting for your permanent Pag-IBIG number.

 

UMID (Unified Multi-purpose ID)

  1. Print out this form, fill out and submit to the nearest SSS branch.
  2. After submitting, line up and have your photo, fingerprints, and signature taken.
  3. Your UMID card will be delivered to you within 30 calendar days (or longer, just wait.).
  4. When you receive your UMID card, you need to activate this. You can proceed to any SSS branch or selected kiosks in malls for the activation.

January 2020 (and onwards) may just be the best time to give birth after SSS announced that maternity benefits for eligible SSS female members could reach up to P70,000 by next year.  According to the SSS, the recently implemented new minimum and maximum monthly salary credit for members and as a result, the usual maternity benefit which was only at P32,000 could double up to P70,000.  This is another good news from the SSS after the approval and implementation of the Expanded Maternity Leave Act that guarantees female members of 105 days of paid maternity leave, among other privileges.

How to avail of the SSS Maternity Benefit?

  • Female SSS members with complete monthly contributions.
  • Female SSS members who have paid contributions of not less than 3 months within the 12-month period before the date of delivery or miscarriage.
  • Member must submit a duly accomplished Maternity Notification Form or the SSS Form MAT-1 with proof of pregnancy (ultrasound, doctor’s report).
  • Employed members may submit the SSS Form MAT-2 for maternity reimbursement so the employer can provide the salary credit due from SSS. This should be given to the employee by the time she goes on maternity leave.
  • Voluntary, work-at-home, and separated members may only submit the SSS Form MAT-1 and the cash allowance shall be given directly to the member.

To know how to compute for your SSS Maternity Benefit, you can read this blog we released in May 2017.

If you are an employed member of the Pag-IBIG and the SSS, you shall, at one point, be entitled to salary loans from these government agencies.  The good thing about getting a government-issued personal loan is that they offer low-interest rates compared to getting a loan from the bank or a private lending company.  Your monthly loan payments are deducted from your salary so it’s convenient… and consistent (which is really important in all types of loan repayments!).

So if you have not decided yet if you should get a Pag-IBIG MP Loan or an SSS Salary Loan (or both!), let us help you with the following comparisons, from requirements to eligibility to the amount that you can possibly borrow based on your total contributions.

Read on!

Pag-IBIG Multi-purpose Loan SSS Salary Loan
Requirements:

  • 24 monthly membership savings
  • Have paid at least one monthly contribution within the last six months before the loan application date.
  • Any other existing Pag-IBIG loan (calamity, housing) must not be in default before applying for an MPL.
Requirements:

  • If the loan is worth your one-month salary, you must have paid at least 36 total monthly contributions.
  • Must have paid at least six monthly contributions within the last 12 months before the loan application date.
  • If your loan is worth two months of your salary, you must have a minimum of 72 total monthly contributions and six monthly contributions within the last 12 months.
  • Must not be over 65 years old and has not received final benefits from the agency such as retirement, total permanent disability, etc.
Loan Amount:

  • The loan amount depends on the member’s preferred loan amount, entitlement, and capacity to pay – whichever is the lowest.
  • A member can borrow up to 80% of his Total Accumulated Value (TAV).  It consists of the member’s monthly contributions, employer’s contributions, and accumulated Pag-IBIG dividends.
  • If you have an existing calamity loan
Loan Amount:

  • SSS members with at least 36 monthly contributions can borrow an amount that is equal to their one-month salary, up to Php 15,000.
  • Members with at least 72 monthly contributions are entitled to a 2-month loan worth twice their salary up to Php 30,000.

 

Loan Interest Rates and Fees:

  • 10.75% per year throughout the loan term.
  • No processing fee.
  • 0.5% fee is imposed on the unpaid amount for every month of late payment.
Loan Interest Rates and Fees:

  • 10% annual interest rate on the outstanding principal balance.
  • This is based on diminished principal balance; the interest becomes lower as the loan is paid.
  • A service fee of 1% of the total loan amount for each SSS salary loan processing.
  • 1% penalty per month for unpaid months.
How long does it take to process loans?

  • 3 to 5 working days from the date of submission to Pag-IBIG.
How long does it take to process loans?

  • 2 to 3 weeks whether you apply online or at an SSS branch.
How will the loan proceeds be released to the member?

  • Pag-IBIG will issue the borrower a Landbank Cash Card.  This is where the proceeds will be deposited.
  • The borrower will receive a text message when his loan is approved and credited to the cash card.
How will the loan proceeds be released to the member?

  • SSS will send a check payable to the member-borrower.
  • If the borrower has a UMID card activated for ATM functionality, it can also be credited there.
What are the repayment terms of Pag-IBIG?

  • 24-month repayment term.
  • Monthly amortization starts in the second month from the loan approval date.
  • Paid monthly via salary deduction.
  • Self-employed and voluntary members can pay at any accredited banks and payment centers.
What are the repayment terms of Pag-IBIG?

  • 24-month repayment term.
  • Monthly amortization starts in the second month from the loan approval date.
  • Paid monthly via salary deduction.
  • Self-employed and voluntary members can pay at any accredited banks and payment centers.

I actually applied for a Pag-IBIG multi-purpose loan last week.  I will write about my experience next week. Come visit us again!
