To pay your SSS contribution, use the RS-5 CONTRIBUTIONS PAYMENT RETURN.
You can get this form at any SSS branch, and you can pay at SSS cashier counters, accredited banks, and other payment outlets, such as Bayad Center or SM Business Center.

Usually, Bayad Centers or SM Business Centers have RS5 forms available.
Bayad Centers and SM Business Centers have their e-payment systems linked to the SSS payment facility, so posting of contributions takes the same time as those paid at e-linked SSS cashiers.

This is how the RS5 Form looks like:

SSS RS-5 -- SSS Contributions Payment Form











This is the fixed amount nearest your actual monthly salary. Salary Credit is used in computing the amount of your salary loan and your benefits, namely, maternity, sickness, disability benefits, EC benefits and pensions.

  1. Hi caresma, yes you can continue as Voluntary. You can no longer pay for past years. This Sep, you can pay for July to Sep. Pay at SSS branch using RS5 form, then after 3 to 5 days to allow for posting, register at so you can track your records. You need your RS5 transaction no. to register. SSS payment deadlines.

  2. Hi! ask ko lang po sana nag submit po yong office namin ng maternity reimbursement facility thru bank and then the bank said sila na po mg submit sa SSS ng form. Ano po dapat kong gawin?di ko pa ma forward yong form MAT 2 ko kasi hinahanapan po ako ng SSS personnel ng thru Bank facility.Nag ka miscarriage pop ako last May 2014 po e pwede pa po ba ma claim yong benefits ko I started paying my SSS 2003 pa makukuha pa po ba ako?thank you

  3. Hi Marivic, the proper process is that your employer should have advanced to you your benefit, then it will be to their bank account that SSS will deposit your benefit, to reimburse them. Did you take a maternity leave? Ask your employer if they already have the SSS-approved SMB PB form, so you can file your MAT2. Your employer can also check their SSS online account if their SMB PB is already approved. They should help you claim, as they did not advance your benefit. For miscarriage cases, the histopathology or D&C report is important, do you have it?

  4. Good Day What if I have completed the 120 Month contributions and I’m not yet 60 years old,SHOULD I continue my contributions until I reach the age of 60?

  5. Hi Mr. Johann, yes, continue paying to increase your pension amount. If you have excess years (more than 10 years), there’s this addition to the pension formula (PLUS 0.2% of average salary credit x no. of excess years). But pay only if you’re able to pay the higher contributions so you can preserve your higher average salary credit. Take note also of the contribution increase rule. It’s here in the lower portion of the SSS RS5 contribution payment form

  6. Hi do i need to change my status as self employed if i want to pay as voluntary in paying my sss? They said just fill up the rs5 form and pay and automatically the status will change. What’s the advantage? and how much is voluntary payment? thanks

  7. Hi gelai, did you register as self-employed? Do you have a Date of Coverage? If yes, you can continue paying as Voluntary if you like Voluntary. It’s true that you just pay as Voluntary using RS5 form (check Voluntary) and your status will change after posting. There are no differences in benefits between self-employed and voluntary. All member types get the same benefits. Benefits vary only because of differences in amounts and years of contributions. Contribution amounts are the same. Here’s the sss contributions table.

  8. I’m 54 yrs old and I avail of company’s early retirement last 2003.
    My total contribution was 239 months(Almost 20yrs).
    My contributions are in maximum bracket base on
    SSS contribution table year 2003 which is PHP1410 with MSC of 15000.
    Here’s the problem, Base on the SSS contribution table for 2014 the PHP1410 made last 2003 will fall on MSC of 13500.

    I stopped paying my SSS contribution last September 2003.
    When I reach the age of 60, which MSC will be the basis for calculation ?

    Based of 2003 Contribution Table: P300 +(20% of 15000)+(2% of 15000 for 10 years)= P6275
    Based on 2014 Contribution Table: P300 +(20% of 13500)+(2% of 13500 for 10 years)= P5677.5

  9. hi ms. nora. i am an sss member with updated premiums. i gave birth here in uae in July 31,2014. I have submitted online my MAT-1 before i gave birth. i have seen the requirements to avail maternity benefits from your link above:
    I have few concerns: 1) because I’ve been here abroad for 7 years, i have not changed my status yet to married. My sss file still shows my maiden status. even my sss id still shows my maiden name. and i heard that the sss id now is different) all my maternity documents here are in my married name. What should I do? Do i need to change my status first? How can i change my status especially i am here abroad? 2) How much maternity benefit can i avail? 3) what’s the deadline for submission of documents?

  10. hi good pm may i ask. Previously, I have been paying then I stopped. Can I pay for january up to october? or annual payment?

  11. Hi jen, there are SSS payment deadlines. This month, you can pay for Oct to Dec 2014 and months after. You can still pay for July to Sep if the last digit of your SSS no. is 7 to 9 or 0 (for Jul to Sep payment, pay at SSS).

  12. hi ms. nora, i hope you can give time for my query posted on 23rd Oct:

  13. Hi Rachel, sorry I was replying to your comments when I got distracted, so I thought I replied to you already :) In previous years, members can file under their maiden name even if already married. But recently, maternity claimants are being advised to update first their civil status before filing MAT2, since the child’s birth certificate shows the parents’ date and place of marriage. Are you in Dubai? You can update your member’s data at the SSS office there. Bring your marriage certificate (orig and xerox). Call for their SSS office hours and if their are long lines.

    Email Address:
    If not, you can authorize someone in the Phils. (email authorization letter and a scan of your IDs so these can be printed) to file your Member’s data change form for you. But the difficulty here is that your representative should have your original marriage certificate. The representative should also bring his 2 valid IDs. And there are some officers who do not accept the member’s scanned IDs.
    Your maternity benefit depends on your contributions (your 6 highest contributions within April 2013 to March 2014). Write these 6 highest contributions here and I will compute. You can file for your maternity benefit within 10 years. But of course, it’s always better to file as soon as you can.

  14. thank you ms. nora. yes, i am in dubai. thanks for providing their contact here. can i then submit the requirements here? As for my monthly contributions, from April 2013, PHP1560 til Dec’13, from Jan.’14 til date, PHP1760.

  15. Hi Rachel, yes, you can update your member data there. Your 6 highest are three 1760 and three 1560. This means your 6 highest salary credits are three 15k and three 16k.
    Let’s add all your 6 highest salary credits, and we get 45k plus 48k = 93k
    93k / 180 days = 516.67 pesos per day
    516.67 pesos x 60 days (normal delivery) = 31k pesos
    Your maternity benefit is 31k pesos.

  16. Hi Chayette, if 1 year or more has passed since your previous loan check date, you can loan now. To be sure, register at so you can check your salary loan eligibility online. Check from time to time if the SSS website is not yet fully functioning. Make sure also that you have paid at least 6 contributions within the past 12 months.

  17. hi, presently I am employed, then had an SSS salary loan and got the check. But I want to pay the loan as voluntary. I heard that my company is not updated in remitting loan payments and I was advised to pay the loan as voluntary. Is that allowed? Until now I haven’t given the voucher to HR and the payment should start this December. Can I pay my salary loan by myself or is payment through employer only? If allowed, how can I pay as voluntary even if I’m employed. thanks po and god bless

  18. Hi Carlo, yes, you can pay as Voluntary, as long as your HR does not force you to pay through payroll — it’s their duty to collect and remit (The rule written on the salary loan form is this: The employer shall be responsible for the collection and remittance to the SSS of the amortization due on the member-borrower’s salary loan through payroll deduction). If you decide to pay on your own, you must commit to paying every month, with no miss and no excuses. I know some who decided to pay on their own, and then forgot to pay, accumulating penalties/interests and turning their 20k loans into 40k loans. You can pay at Bayad Center or SM Business Center, then keep orig and xerox copies. Check your loan balance online from time to time. If you’re asked to fill up the RS5 payment form, leave the employer name and SSS no. blank. Only your name, SSS no. and address should be written. Some collectors use their own payment forms.

  19. Hi Nora! Just wanted to ask since I am staying overseas as housewife, I should consider paying as “OFW?” Can I remit different amounts every month? Or I can choose either 550 or 1760? My previous record is “employed” from 2002-2006. From 2007 to date I stopped paying when I was working abroad. Currently I am a housewife but might continue to work abroad.
    Do I need to change any status in the SSS branch or it will be automatically updated as OFW (if in case that is my payor type Ty Ann

  20. Hi Elenie, if you pay SSS from abroad and write OFW as your member category, then your status will change to OFW after posting of your payment. The advantages of OFW members are: your payment deadlines are more flexible and you can save with Flexi-Fund if you like. You can also email this OW-1 form to About contribution amount, you can increase/decrease your contribution from month to month by 1 or 2 levels only, unless you declare your income via SSS RS5 form. For OFWs, the minimum contribution is 550 pesos.

  21. good am maam, it’s been 13 years I’ve not contributed to my sss account, since I went abroad. How can I continue paying? I’m an OFW here in UAE; no day off. Thanks

  22. Hi Nita, only SSS members who get sick or confined for at least 4 days can apply for SSS sickness benefit; not the beneficiaries.
    In Philhealth, yes, a beneficiary younger than 18 can use his/her parent’s Philhealth.

  23. hi, May 2 , 2015 is my due and for me to be eligible for reimbursement, do i need to pay oct to dec? last payment is may from may employer and its a minimum salary. If I pay as voluntary to cover may oct. to dec with max like 1700 per month, how much benefit would i get? I hesitate to pay max if it does not impact my benefit. or pay max for oct to nov based on the computation i saw. thank you

  24. Hi ica, yes, you need to pay Oct to Dec this Dec so you can increase your benefit. But increase your contribution only by 2 levels. You can pay higher or maximum but fill up the income portion of the RS5 form. Ask others too.

  25. Good afternoon! May I ask how I should compute my maternity benefit if I was employed at the time of my conception and unemployed before giving birth. last day at work was may 3, 2014 and I gave birth december 15, 2014. But I paid last quarter this year from october to december ng 380? How much benefit will I get? Thanks

  26. Hi Ma. Rovelyn, your semester of contingency is July to Dec 2014, so SSS will look for your 6 highest contributions within July 2013 to June 2014. Write your 6 highest contributions or salary credits within Jul to Jun and I’ll compute.

  27. hi ms. may i know in which part of the rs5 can we see the sbr number needed to register online? I’ve tried many times registering online, but the system does not accept my sbr#. I’m self-employed

  28. Hi danilo, I think you’re looking in the correct portion — top right usually, where the cash machine marks are usually printed. Choose 6 digits from the transaction no. and enter 6 digits. Or have you just paid? Wait for about 3 days to allow for posting. If your payment is not yet posted, your SBR# is not yet in the system.

  29. hi, I just wanna ask how much Maternity benefit can I get for my pregnancy. I only started my contribution Last may 2014, but my contribution for every month is P581.30.

  30. Hi Jerei, I assume you’re employed, and you’re in the maximum salary range, which is 16k and above. Am I correct? When are you giving birth? So I can estimate if you can get the maximum 32k for normal delivery.

  31. I gave birth last Sept 11, 2014 in UAE. I am paying 550 pesos monthly contribution. I am employed for almost 4 years now. I had a caesarian section delivery. How much maternity benefit I can claim and can you provide me with the computation

  32. Hi Mae, if you paid at least 6 contributions within Apr 2013 to Mar 2014 (520 in 2013 and 550 in 2014), your benefit will be:
    5k x 6 months = 30k
    30k / 180 = 166.67
    166.67 x 78 days = 13k
    Your benefit is 13,000 pesos.

  33. Good pm! My husband’s SSS contribution/payment for Dec. 2014 was doubled. The second payment was for January 2015. What will happen? Should he pay for January? Or is it automatic that the system corrects it as payment for January 2015, since payment for last Dec 2014 was already paid? Thanks

  34. Hi Maybelline, if the 2nd payment was made after the payment deadline for Dec 2014, then this 2nd payment will be credited automatically as payment for Jan 2015. If the 2nd payment was on time, and the total of the 2 payments were not more than 1,760, there’s a possibility that the 2 payments will be credited for Dec 2015. But check your online account from time to time. Later on, if you see that the error was not corrected, you can request SSS for correction of posting by writing a letter to SSS requesting the posting of your 2nd payment for Jan 2015. Attach a copy of your 2 payment receipts. You can submit this request to the nearest branch.

  35. I would like to clarify regarding our SSS deduction because we are deducted semi monthly of 581.30 so in one month we are contributing 1162.6 example our Monthly Basic Salary is 32,000 and for the first cut off 1-15 basic salary will be 16,000 + OT 2000 we are having a salary gross of 18,000 and our SSS deduction for first cut off is 581.3 then in the second 16-30 cutoff basic salary will be 16,000 + OT 1000 we are having a salary gross of 17,000 again SSS deduction for second cut off is 581.3. Just to know if there computation is correct in deducting our SSS?

  36. Hi Joey, your employer should be deducting only 581.30 once per month. If twice per month, the deduction should be 290.65 every 15 and 30, with a monthly total of 581.30 (290.65 x 2). It should be the employer that is paying a total of 1,208.70 for you monthly (1,178.70 for regular SSS and 30 pesos for EC). Ask your fellow employees if their SSS deduction is similar to yours, and if similar, go to your HR/accounting and ask.
    The SSS table of contribution is on a monthly basis, NOT on a semi-monthly basis. Whether the employee is earning 16k or 100k a month, the employee will pay 581.30 per month, and the employer will pay 1,208.70 per month for the employee.

  37. Hi, wanna ask something about my sss loaned year 2006 worth 7k then the previous years until 2014 haven’t contributing monthly ….I want to know the appx balance to pay for my loan which I believe already increased so much because of the interest.thank you in advance

  38. Hi mervin, sorry I don’t work for SSS, so I don’t have access to their records. You can go to the nearest branch and ask. Or register at so you can track your records online. Try during non-peak hours, like midnight.

  39. ask ko lng po employed po ako tapos po wala pa po ako natatanggap na benefits ko kase sabe po ng employer ko aantayin daw po nila na mabayaran sila ng sss bago po ibigay po sakin yun benefits ko..
    ano po ba pwede ko gawen?

  40. Hi Arlyne, are you still paying 312? You should have started paying 330 since contributions were increased in Jan 2014. You can avail if you have paid at least 3 contributions within the 12 months prior to your semester of contingency. I don’t know what amount they will use if you paid the incorrect amount. If you paid 330 for 6 months within the required period, you should be able to claim 7,800 pesos.

  41. Hi is the monthly contribution based on actual monthly compensation (i.e. Based on actual worked days)? Does it mean that we have to recompute every month our employees’ contributions every single month? It’s very tedious and time-consuming. Thanks.

  42. Hi Tess, yes, it’s based on actual monthly gross compensation. Yes, you have to compute every week/15th or 30th/month, depending on your payroll frequencies, and whether you deduct SSS every 30th/31st or 2x a month or every week (for weekly-paid workers). You can make your own formula on Excel, or other method to make your work easier. Even if you’re not an Excel expert, just fill up Excel with SSS employee data, then later on, you can see patterns.

  43. my employer deducted 490.50 pesos per month two month lang n hulog from april 2014 to present tenawagan ko wala pa cila action
