. Minimum Monthly Contribution for OFWs is 550 pesos.

. For those who have paid in advance contributions for the year 2014 based on the old SSS contribution table, make additional payments.


If you paid in advance 104 per month,
pay an additional 6 pesos for each month paid in advance.
If you paid in advance 312 per month,
pay an additional 18 pesos for each month paid in advance.
If you paid in advance 520 per month,
pay an additional 30 pesos for each month paid in advance.
If you paid in advance 780 per month,
pay an additional 45 pesos for each month paid in advance.
If you paid in advance 1,560 per month,
pay an additional 200 pesos for each month paid in advance.

What happens if I do not make additional payments?

SSS will post your contributions as payments for the applicable lower salary credit.

BUT those who paid in advance 104 per month and OFWs who paid in advance 520 per month, they must make the additional payments, or else their advance payments will be put on hold and will not be posted. Why so? Because there is no salary credit lower than 1,000 or no contribution lower than 104.

For OFWs who paid in advance their minimum, 520 per month, SSS will also put these payments on hold, kasi 5,000 ang pinakamababang salary credit for OFWs.

Ano ba ang difference between SALARY RANGE and SALARY CREDIT?

Salary Range refers to your actual gross monthly salary. Andito ba sa range na ito ang iyong gross monthly salary?

Salary Credit is the amount used by SSS to compute your salary loan amount, sickness benefit amount, maternity benefit amount and pension amount.

  1. Hello. I’ve been paying the amount of 1560 ever since, and I didn’t know about this update on the contribution table until now. I only found out when I noticed only the amount of 1540 is posted in my SSS account since January. What happened to the 20 peso difference I’ve been remitting then? What should I do to have those credited?

  2. Hi myra, lumpsum means one time payment. If from SSS, it’s one time payment of benefit through a check.

  3. Good day, may I know if SSS Malolos branch is open on Saturday? For we have to check my mother’s contribution and status of her previous loan.thank you

  4. Hi gaith, sorry I’m not sure. The SSS desk office at Robinsons Malolos is open on Saturdays. Ask others too

  5. Hello, when I was single, I worked for some months. My employer made SSS deductions, but I’m not sure if these were remitted to SSS. I want to continue paying, but I don’t remember my SSS no. What should I do? God bless!

  6. Hi precila, go to the nearest SSS branch, and verify your SSS no. and contributions. Ask the guard for a verification slip. If your records show there were contributions, that means you were properly registered, so you can start paying. Just fill up RS5 form, or you can pay at Bayad Center. You can increase your contributions by 2 brackets at a time.

  7. I just retired October 31,2014. I am a member since 1976 and been paying the Maximum contribution since 1992. Can you help me in calculating my suppose to be pension pay. I filled my SSS claim last November 6, 2014. Thank you and God Bless.

  8. Hi Benjamin, this will be just an estimate, as I don’t have all the data. We’ll use the formula 300 pesos plus 20% of Average Monthly Salary Credit plus 2% of AMSC x Credited Years of Service in excess of 10.
    Assuming that you paid the maximum until Oct 2014, then your total MSC will be 50 months x 15k + 10 months x 16k = 750k + 160k = 910k
    Your average MSC will be 910k/60 months = 15,167 pesos
    300 + 20% of 15167 + (2% of 15167) x (38-10)
    300 + 3033.40 + 303.34 x 28
    300 + 3033.40 + 8493.52
    11,826.92 pesos
    Your estimated pension is 11,826.92 pesos. Please remember this is just an estimate.
    May I please ask that, if you have the time, to please inform us of your actual pension amount later on. I just want to know if my computations are correct, or if SSS includes other factors to compute. Thank you very much.

    another question is -is the sss memeber’s benefit the same for employed and voluntary members ?


  11. Hi Marilou, send your request to SSS: About benefits: yes, the formula for computing benefits for employed and voluntary members is the same. Benefits depend on average salary credits and total no. of credited years

  12. Hello good day po sir I would like to ask how much will be my monthly pension if I reached my 60 years of age if now i have contribution of 1650 monthly if I completed my 120 contributions I hope you relpy as soon as possible tnx a lot…

  13. Hi Nora, Why can a person not find a Excel program anywhere on line to calculate the SSS, withholding,Pag-Ibig & Phil-Health contribution rates based upon the required information entered. This program should be provided by the government. If not a consolidated program for all the different taxes, at least one for each of the required taxes. Please direct if you know of a source? Thanks M. Garrtt

  14. Hi mary jane, since you’ll pay for only 10 years, your pension will most likely be 6,000 pesos, which is 40% of 15,000 = 6,000 pesos (40% of your average salary credit)

  15. Hi S. Garrett, I googled “free payroll software philippines”, and I saw You can explore it. You can also see 30-day or 60-day free-trial payroll software for small businesses.

  16. Hi! good day. year 2005 I was a member of sss, since it was a requirement for work. last year I inquired at sss tacloban what was the status of my account, but they said I don’t have any posted contribution, not even one. Now I want to contribute as voluntary. Is that allowed? What should I do? Thanks

  17. hi im joel maningas from qatar, I want to pay contributions to SSS while I’m here in Qatar, but when I had my account verified in the Phils, they required my ID. I don’t have SSS ID so how can I verify my account? I forgot my SSS number. i hope you can help me thanks

  18. Hi joel, are you in Doha? There’s an SSS desk in Doha. Philippine Overseas Labor Office, corner Al Furat St., 960 & Al Qaisoum St. 827 Onaiza Area, Doha. Phone: (974) 448-78599 / Mobile No. (974) 661-43076 / Email: / Representative: Michael D. Ingal. If you’re far from Doha, you can email your authorization letter to your representative in the Phils to verify your SSS no. and date of coverage (DOC) for you. Scan your passport or Qatar ID plus any other ID. If you have no Date of Coverage (meaning you never paid SSS through an employer in the past), after knowing your SSS no., you download this SSS OW-1 form, accomplish 2 copies, then send them with a copy of your passport or Qatar ID to SSS through postal mail (address is on the form) or email or

  19. From employed to voluntary, how to pay my contribution if ever I’ll be an ofw in there any agency in thailand that I could pay my contribution in order to continue my remittances?

  20. Hi Maricelcalunsod, there are not many remittance firms in Thailand. If you can open a Metrobank OFW savings account (no maintaining balance, but remit to it from abroad at least once a year) asap and then enroll it in internet banking asap, and activate it here in the Phils asap, before leaving, you can pay your SSS through Metrobank online banking.

  21. Hi Mrs Nora, i used to pay my SSS contribution as self employed but was not able to continue paying since I started working here in UAE. I wonder how much will I pay now and do I need to inform sss that I am paying as an ofw. And if so when I go back to the Philippines am I allowed to pay as self employed again? Because I will not go back here again. Thank you :)

  22. Hi Toni Rose, did you register with SSS using RS1 form before you paid as self-employed? If not sure, before you come home for good, you should register as OFW while you’re there abroad because it’s easier to get approval if you’re abroad. If you’re in Dubai or Abu Dhabi, there’s an SSS office at the consulate or embassy there, you can register there as OFW member. If not, you can download this SSS OW-1 form, print it, fill it up and send by postal mail with a copy of your IDs to the SSS address on the form.
    When you continue paying here, after being OFW, your member status changes to Voluntary.

  23. hello, i was a member of SSS but just start paying as self employed year 2010. i was already 48 years old, when i turned 65 and i want to have my pension how much will i get monthly? my monthly contribution is 520 pesos. Thank you. juvy

  24. Hi Juvy, I’ll estimate your pension later. I ask first if you registered using RS1 form before starting to pay in 2010 and was it approved and stamped by SSS? Do you have a Date of Coverage? I’m asking so we can be sure that you registered properly.

  25. Hello Nora, thank you for your reply, yes i am registered i also have the new ID just got it last year when i was in the Philippines i think i start last quarter of 2010 and every month its automatic deduction from my bank account because i registered it too. and its 550 now i guess. if i ask or apply for like maximum monthly? my pension will be higher too example 10 years from now? thanks juvy

  26. Hi Juvy, if you’re 53 now, and you retire at age 60, you can start increasing your monthly contributions by 2 levels each month till you get to the maximum. Paying the maximum for the last 5 years (60 months) before retirement will be most cost-effective. About pension amount: Let’s say the maximum salary credit by the time of your retirement is still 16k and you’ve contributed for 12 years and your average monthly salary credit is 16k, SSS will compute using 2 to 4 formulas and the highest result will be your pension. In your case, the formula 40% of AMSC will result to 16k x 40% = 6400 pesos. The other relevant formula (300 + 20% of AMSC + 2% of AMSC x no. of years in excess of 10) will result in a lower amount: 4,140. The first result is higher so your pension will be 6400 pesos. Ask others too. I’m glad you’re properly registered; I asked because there have been many here who lost credited years because of not registering properly before paying, with some having no more time to correct their mistake.

  27. Hi Mam nor ask ko lng po 60 months na po ako nagbabayad sa SSS 38 years old na po ako ngayon ofw po ako kung i continue ko po ang pagbabayad ng 550 pesos a month until my 60 years old then i paying maximum contribution for 5 years bago ko mag retire magkno po ang magging pension nito ask po ako ng favor kung papaano mag compute tnx po

  28. Hi Mam Nora. ask lang po ako about my fathers pension kung how much will he get for pension.
    My father had paid 120 monthly sss contribution for almost 15 years ago.i dont know how much he paid that time of his employment but lets say the lowest amount to be paid. Now, his 56 years old and start paying sss contribution again last august 2014 after turning the age of 56. He pay 300 pesos per month as self employed because he dont have work already.. How much pension would he get at the age of 60.???
    thanks in advance for your reply,,::))

  29. mam,i have an educational loan of 900 pesos last 1982 and i dont pay until much it will be now including all penalty.i want to pay it now.mraming slamat po

  30. Hi dionisio, I’m so sad to read your question. It’s been 33 to 34 years! So surely that 900 is now a big amount. I wish you took advantage of one of the condonation programs offered years before. There’s no condonation program right now, and I don’t know when the next one will be. The best is to go to the nearest SSS ASAP and verify your loan balance, and ask for their advise.

  31. hi po mam nora ask ko po meron po bang backpay ang SSS..dahil 78 year old na po ang tatay ko pero nagun lang sya nakatapos ng pagbayad ng kanyang SSS sa voluntary payment, d po ba 60 years old ang magpension so ngaun ang tatay ko is 78 may back po ba?

  32. Greetings!
    I just want to ask the procedure and req. to become a member of SSS if the person is working abroad and never been a member eversince? How much will be her monthly contribution if her salary is 35k?
    Thank you very much…

  33. Pano ko ba mahuhulugan sss ng nanay ko kc di nman cya member gusto ko sna cya maging memeber pra makapag hulog ako as voluntary sa mother ko pa help namn kong pano procedure

  34. Already made 180 contribution and im in abroad now, should i continue or i can stop na. Also, what if I become citizen of another country, is there an effect on the pension? Thanks.

  35. Hi Sakura, you can claim your pension when you turn 60, even if by that time, you’re already a citizen of another country. You can stop if you decide so. If you opt to continue, I suggest that you pay the same or higher than your past contributions in order to maintain your higher average salary credit

  36. Hi po. It was in 2008 when I made my last contribution to sss. I plan to continue as self employed. Is that okay that I did not remit for many years?

  37. Hi Annie, were you employed when you made your past contributions? If yes, your member status now will be Voluntary, not self-employed. Yes, you can continue making contributions as Voluntary even if you did not pay for many years.
    If you were not employed before, did you register using the RS-1 self-employed form before paying? If not sure, go first to the nearest SSS and verify your membership and contributions, so you will know if you have a Date of Coverage — this is important.
