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:

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 Ester, I wish your siblings here are the ones filing the claim. I’m also not sure if you can still make the claim. It’s past 10 years, which is the prescription period for civil cases or claims. Or there could be exceptions. If you can still file a claim, you can get papers from the NSO or your local registrar or you can use notarized affidavits. I’ll try to check the prescription period. But you can ask your siblings to ask SSS.

  2. hi mam good day,am paying 520 monthly to SSS. want to check online my payments. but my registration is not successful. the response is always your sbr # is not recorded in sss .. have been paying since june 2011 and up to now. my payment is before end of the month ..

  3. Hi jane, how many digits are you entering for SBR no.? Should be 6 digits only. Remove some zeros or other digits. Try your SBR last Dec 2012, or the payment you’re sure is already posted. best regards

  4. good day ma! want to ask po the amount of my salary deduction for my sss contribution; my salary is 18,000. am confused about the contribution table, ER and EE, then sum total contribution? please help po…am newly employed. help naman po.thanks

  5. gud am po! want to ask about double payment of SSS contributions. Would there be a problem? I didn’t know that my partner’s contributions are being paid by his employer. I also paid for her.

  6. Hi reigna, you’re in the 15k bracket. You will pay 500 per month. Your employer will pay 1060 and 30 for EC; total of 1090.

  7. Gud Day po, am a seaman who’s been here on vacation for 5 months, as I don’t yet have an assignment. I’ve been an SSS member for more than 4 years. want to apply for a loan, but I’m not sure because my company stopped paying my contributions, as I’m on vacation. What should I do to be able to apply for a loan? tnx

  8. Hi nestor, you can apply for a SSS loan if you have paid at least 6 months of the last 12 months. Have you enrolled in online SSS? Enroll and then apply for a loan online. The online system will tell you if you’re eligible for a loan or not. You need to ask for the SSS no. of your agency because you need it to enroll.

  9. Hi pia, if the total for each month does not exceed 1560 pesos, then there would be no problem. I think SSS will just combine the 2 payments as one payment; I’m just not sure about the posting. Enroll in Online SSS so you can see how SSS will post your payments. Look in the actual premiums table and in the voluntary premiums table.

  10. Gud pm, want to ask why the processing of my aunt’s lump sum is taking too long. My aunt is now sick; she had a stroke. We need the lump sum to buy medicines

  11. hi want to ask if I start paying as voluntary member and pay at the bank. Is there anything else I need to do after paying?

  12. Hi Kaye, I suggest you pay at Bayad Center or SM Business center or SSS cashier, so your payment gets posted faster. Enroll in Online SSS, so you can track your payments. Just keep your receipt.

  13. Hi Moises, the time varies. Maybe 1 to 2 weeks. Employed members get their check faster because their messengers get the check from the branch. A friend filed an education loan on Feb 1 in Alabang. The next day, on Feb 2, she saw on her online account that her application was encoded in Makati, approved, with the check already generated. Yesterday, Feb 13, she received her loan check from the postman via registered mail.

  14. Hi po just wanna ask if it’s really required that I submit a certificate of separation and certificate of non-advancement of maternity benefits from my employer? was AWOL from work last month and now my employer refuses to give me these certificates.. I am 6 months pregnant and im filling maternity notification. thanks

  15. Hi anj, on the SSS guidebook, it says that you need to submit those 2 certificates if you give birth within 6 months from date of separation. But based on those who have commented here, the SSS requires these even if the gap is more than 6 months already. They require those certs usually if childbirth is within 12 months. You need also Signature Specimen Card from them. You can file your maternity notification even without those papers yet.

  16. hi! as a contractual employee, had 6 payments with my employer in 2007.after that i no longer paid my contributions.i am now 1 month pregnant and due to give birth on october. can I start paying jan so I can claim my maternity benefits? thanks

  17. Hi tj, are you sure your employer remitted your SSS payments? Because you need to be sure you can pay as Voluntary. If not sure, you go to SSS with your ID and verify. If you have contributions posted in 2007, then you can continue paying. Just use RS5 form. Pay Jan to June. SSS will look at these 6 months for computing your benefits. Submit MAT1 after your payment has been posted. Enroll in online SSS.
    You can comment here again if your employer in 2007 did not pay your contributions

  18. Gud PM po Mam Nors, Meron lang po sana akong itanong, kasi po 1 month na lang po ay makaka 120 hulog na po ako sa SSS, ako po ay 64 years old na po.Tanong ko lang po ang mga kailangan ihanda mga papeles or documents na kailangan ko pong ihanda para po makakuha po ako nang Pension Monthly. Self Employed lang po ako mula pa po nung umpisa nang hulog ko..Marami pong salamat..

  19. can i check my aunties contribution..
    2011 p last contribution nya.. tumigil sya kc she didnt know if her contribution really remitted..
    please help.. s online kc d aq mkapsok..

  20. ..another question po..
    My friend wants to remit to SSS as self employed.. He already have SSS #, but he never remit since then..
    ano po mga keilangan..?

  21. Hi Lhot, 2 ways to check your aunt’s contributions: 1. go to the nearest SSS branch with your IDs and your aunt’s IDs and authorization letter and verify
    2. pay one contribution as voluntary, wait for about 3 days for it to be posted, then enroll in online SSS using your new SBR no. and check your contributions.

  22. Hi Ms. Nors!

    My tita started her SSS contributions on a later time and she’ll be 65 soon. She has only 40+ monthly contributions.
    Will she be able to have a monthly pension or just a lump sum?


  23. hi good pm i just want to ask may way ba na makakakuha ako ng sss mat benefits kahit na awol ako sa last employer ko kasi kneed daw ng coe ? and can anyone have the same situation? pano po ginawa nyo, sayang naman po kasi yun benefits…

    thanks.. a lot.

  24. hi, Im currently working abroad and I’m paying my sss contributions as OFW. My contract will end in 2 months time, how will I change the status from OFW to Voluntary or Self-Employed?

    Thank you.

  25. Hi lulu, there’s one who asked that question recently. She’s also on awol and her employer refused to give her papers. I don’t know if they will accept your documents if they’re not complete. It’s not COE…it’s certification of separation from employment and certification that they did not advance your maternity benefit, plus signature specimen card. These are required if your delivery date is within 6 months of separation from employment. But oftentimes, even if the time gap is already one year, the SSS officers require these papers.

  26. Hi Jo, you will continue as Voluntary. Just pay using the RS5 form and Check Voluntary. Did you start as OFW? Did you submit before an OW1 form? Are you enrolled in online SSS? Can you see your Date of Coverage there?

  27. hi po, just want to inquire on how can i have a break down of my loan payment. my previous company is deducting me for my loan but unfortunately the company shut down, now im working with my new company and they are asking me to provide the break down on my loan payments. thank you.

  28. Hi rachel, enroll in online SSS so you can see your posted loan payments and print a copy. Use your former employer’s SSS no. If you don’t have it, try your new employer’s SSS no. (only if your new company has already remitted one or more contributions for you). If you cannot yet enroll online, you go to the nearest SSS and ask for a copy of your loan payments.

  29. ..hi..
    i paid for my aunt’s sss contribution to bayad center but the cashier told me that the sss# is invalid…
    what i need to do..?
    how can i update her sss#.?
    the cashier told me to update first before the payment.
    thank you

  30. Hi

    How to claim medical benefits for OFW, i had operation for a cyst and been admitted to hosp for 3 days. How to claim for it? and the documents needed?


  31. Hi Lhot, ask your aunt to check her SSS no. Do you have a previous RS5 receipt so you can check? Bayad Center’s system is linked with the SSS payment system; that’s why they can check immediately the nos. If you’re sure about the no., try another Bayad Center; there might just be a glitch in the system. Is this your aunt’s first payment? She needs to verify at an SSS branch.

  32. My question is in regards with my father pension which is until now we never have response it’s almost two years now since we filed for the application and submitted all the required documents, my father is 64 years old now. Thank you very much

  33. i am a voluntary member, how can i access or where can i access my profile member and contribution?
    thank you very much

  34. Hi Myra, I think it’s more practical to file with Philhealth than SSS because for SSS pays only 90% of your average daily rate (based on your SSS salary credit) times the no. of days in confinement. Besides, SSS covers only hospitalization for at least 4 days. SSS requires documents to be authenticated by the consulate and needs English translation. I don’t know if the document costs are worth it.
    For Philhealth refund, here are the documents:

  35. Hi Almar, I’m puzzled that your father doesn’t have yet his pension. Go to the nearest SSS branch with your IDs, your father’s ID, and authorization letter authorizing you to make inquiries about his pension, and ask. Do you have a claim stub? or acknowledgment receipt?

  36. Yes Mrs. Nors, it’s almost two years now this coming june since we filed my father pension with SSS but until to this moment i am writing this note we never receive any response from them except fo the promise from them that we have to wait…we can wait but until when that is the question?
    Thank you very much for your ASAP response…

  37. Hi Almar, I’m puzzled because the pensioners I know waited for only a few months. Have you gone to your branch to inquire again? 2 years is not acceptable. Ask if you need to submit additional documents. Was your father employed before? Do you know his employer’s SSS no.? So you can enroll in online SSS, and so you can check your father’s SSS data.

  38. YES mrs. nors, this june 2012 its already two years since we completed our father application for his pension for SSS but until now he never receive any response from the SSS office. My sister is very consistent in doing follow ups with our father application and complies with all the necessary documents but still no answer from them, she will try again this monday to follow up my dad application.

  39. hi po, just want to ask po if meron pa po ba akong ma ke-claim na death benefit for my father who is my primary beneficiary who passed away last June 2012. My sister and my mother was able to get already a death and burial benefit from my father’s own SSS contribution. Ano po ba yung pinagbabasehan nilang last 36 contributions if ever po na may ke-claim pa ako for my father’s death benefit.

    Maraming salamat po.


  40. Hi Fredie, you can qualify for pension from your father’s SSS membership only if you’re younger than 21 and if your father has paid at least 36 monthly contributions. Or are you asking if you can claim a benefit because you’re an SSS member and your father is your SSS beneficiary? If this is what you meant, sorry, there’s no benefit arising from beneficiary to member — should be member to beneficiary.

  41. mrs. nors my sister paid our sss contribution yesterday 27 feb. and asked her to ask for the sbr number, the teller informed her that sbr number is on the receipt. my sister gave me the sbr number but it contain with one letter and 14 numbers but when i entered into the application online form it says that sbr number is not on the sss system record may problema ba sa mga number inilgay ko? please help at huwag ka sanang mag sawa sa akin mga katanungan sa iyo. nag follow up na rin ang sis ko tungkol sa pension application nang father namin and hoping magkaroon na nang clarification this time…thanks

  42. Hi Almar, enter only 6 digits. Remove zeros and some digits. And wait for the payment to be posted. Where did your sister pay? Posting is faster if paid at SSS, or SM Business Center or Bayad Center — about 2 to 3 days. If paid at a bank, posting takes a longer time. Thanks too for commenting again. As long as I have time and I know the answer, I enjoy responding.

  43. halo working pinoy! Im a voluntary member. Can I double (or triple) my payment (Php1560 x 2) per month? Thank you
