15,750 – over 16,000 1,760


. 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.

    SSS member for Ako Noon Pa 2009 tapos Noong nag trabaho pa Ako Sa pinas 475 po monthly ko with my employer kaya Lang po Hindi po yata nabayaran. Ngayon nandito na po Ako Sa abroad gusto ko po mag bayad Ng SSS. Pwede po bang ipagpatuloy yong SSS number ko Noong 2009 pa.

    Thank u

  2. Nors on October 22nd, 2013 4:56 am

    Hi Janice, since you’re not sure if your employer remitted your contributions, it’s important that you download the OW1 form, fill up and sign and send to the SSS address written on the Instructions portion. If it takes a long time for SSS to respond, ask someone in the Phils to verify with SSS if you have contributions (email that someone a scan of your ID and authorization letter). If you had contributions, that means you’ve been properly registered, and you can continue to pay. Your rep can pay for you for 1 contribution, then send you the transaction no. and then enroll in online SSS so you can track your SSS data.

  3. Janice Glynn Dapiasan on October 22nd, 2013 2:52 pm

    Thank for response

  4. juvy on November 19th, 2013 10:21 pm

    hi po mam nors,ask ko lang about my sss maternity.naaproved na po yung maternity ko noong october 14 po nakalagay na rin yung amount doon kung magkano yung makukuha ko,nag inquire po ako sa text yung send to 2600.bakit po hanggang ngayon hindi ko pa natatanggap yung cheke more than a month na..nag ask na rin po ako sa post office wala pa rin..pano po kaya yon..pls reply na lang po dito.maraming salamat po…

  5. Maryflor on November 21st, 2013 7:37 am

    Hello po mam, ask ko lang…magkano n po kaya ang bracket n ibabayad ng mother ko this year 2013? self employed po siya and last payment niya was August 2005 pa. Gusto niya sana ipatuloy na ngayon ang pagbabayad, magkano n po kaya babayaran niya monthly and kelan po ba siya magsisimula?what month. Thank You Po.

  6. Nora on November 22nd, 2013 5:52 am

    Hi juvy, I’m puzzled din na bakit wala pa. Call SSS sana pero bihira naman daw ang sinasagot, but you try. Or you can go to the branch where you filed your claim. I hope you get it before November ends.

  7. Nora on November 22nd, 2013 6:58 am

    Hi Maryflor, your mother can start paying this quarter, Oct to Dec 2013. Choose from the old table. Starting Jan 2014, choose from the table 2014 above. For her first payment, use RS5 form and declare her income that matches her contribution. Keep this RS5 form. If you like to increase later on, increase by 1 or 2 brackets only so you don’t need to declare her income. After payment, register her online so you can check if she has a Date of Coverage; this date is very important.

  8. sheila may on December 6th, 2013 5:28 pm

    pinapatanong po ng tito ko kung paano daw po ba niya malalaman kung hinulugan ng kumpanya niya dati ung sss niya.8 years na kasi siyang hindi pwede pa daw po siyang maghulog ulit sa sss niya.

  9. Nora on December 8th, 2013 9:53 pm

    Hi sheila, he should visit the nearest SSS with his ID and verify his contributions. If he had previous contributions and he has a Date of Coverage, he can continue paying as Voluntary member using RS5 form. If he had zero contributions and no Date of Coverage, he needs to register as self-employed (with proof of source of income) and then start paying.

  10. vanny on December 31st, 2013 11:34 am

    Hi ms.nora, I gave birth last dec. 17 and i will file my maternity claim this january. My concern is, will this new contribution table will apply in my maternity claim? Thanks!

  11. Nora on January 1st, 2014 8:57 am

    Hi vanny, the new contribution table will not affect your claim. SSS will compute your benefits by checking your 6 highest contributions within July 2012 to June 2013

  12. Vhian bisorio on January 2nd, 2014 3:17 am

    Hi..happy new year! Member po ako ng sss.Last na contribution ko 2008 pa nung ngtatrabaho ako s pinas. Ngayon po working abroad po ako. Gusto ko po ipagpatuloy ang contribution ko. Panu ko po mahuhulugan ang sss ko? Anu po ang requirements na pwede dalhin o ipakita ng taong mpagbibilinan ko na nasa pilipinas? Maraming salamat po.

  13. Nora on January 2nd, 2014 9:18 am

    Hi Vhian, kung gusto mong mag-continue na agad, puedeng magpabayad ka na agad sa trusted person mo sa Phils. Sa Bayad Center, SM Business Center or SSS branch. Gamitin lang niya ang RS5 form. . Provide him the details. Check niya muna Voluntary. If you like to change your status to OFW, download OW1 form and then send to the address found in the Instructions. Online SSS Registration

  14. Ebbah on January 2nd, 2014 4:38 pm

    hi mam, nagvoluntary member po kasi ako because i am currently employed in government, bigla ko kasing binabaan ang contribution due to some financial issues. nagapply po ako ng maternity notification, pinahanap po sken yung RS5 ko na bigla kong binabaan yung contribution ko bakit po kaya? pero now tinaasan ko na ulit.

  15. Nora on January 2nd, 2014 11:23 pm

    Hi Ebbah, meron kasing rule na you should declare your earnings in the RS5 form if you decrease your salary credit to less than 5k.

  16. Ferdinand on January 10th, 2014 3:29 am

    Dear Sir/Maam,

    Member po ako ng SSS as self employed OFW naghuhulog po ako ng 520 pesos monthly then natigil po sa paghuhulog last August 2013 then gusto kupo uli ituloy ang paghuhulog and gusto kurin taasan ang contribution,magkano po puede ko ihulog?

    Thank you,

  17. Nora on January 10th, 2014 10:47 pm

    Hi Ferdinand, puede kang mag-increase sa maximum na 1760 kung gusto mo (siguro naman ay more than 15,750 ang monthly salary mo dahil OFW ka). Ang gawin mo lang is fill-up the Declaration of Earnings sa RS5 form. Check the SSS contribution table above and then choose your monthly contribution. Check the corresponding salary credit — that’s what you will write in the Declaration of Earnings. If you don’t like filling up the Declaration of Earnings, increase your contribution by 2 brackets at a time. For Jan 2014, pay 660, then 770 in Feb, then 880 in Mar and 990 in Apr, until you reach the amount you prefer.

  18. Arturo Dacuba on January 12th, 2014 4:27 pm

    I’m 61 years old now and receiving my monthly pension. But it seems to me my pension is small to what it should be. I have been an SSS member since 1970. I went abroad from 1988 to 2006 and continued paying my SSS monthly contribution as a voluntary member and self-employed. Paid the maximum monthly contribution for about fourteen months before retiring. It was a gradual increased in monthly contribution. Please educate me on how to calculate my monthly pension. Thanks…

  19. Nora on January 12th, 2014 7:40 pm

    Hi Arturo, your question requires a longer answer, so to benefit others, I’ll answer your question by a post, so please wait.

  20. Nora on January 13th, 2014 9:09 am

    Hi Arturo, ito na yong sagot ko:
    Thanks din. Please comment again if you see a possible error. Not much time to cross-check. Happy new 2014

  21. Grace on January 14th, 2014 6:25 pm

    Kung ang isang sss member ay nasa highest average monthly salary credit (1986-1998)at ngayon mag re retire sa edad na 60, ang computation ba ng kanyang pension ay base pa rin sa “P15,000″ average monthly salary credit ng Yr 2013 SSS contribution table? At maliban sa monthly pension na matatangap,makakuha ba siya muna ng lump sum tapos ang pension onward?

  22. Nora on January 16th, 2014 9:55 am

    Hi Grace, ang basis ay yong nga actual salary credits noong 1986 to 1998. I-add lahat lahat ng salary credits and then divide by no. of contributions, para makuha yong average monthly salary credit (AMSC). Kung ang AMSC ng member sa last 60 months bago retirement ay mas mataas, then ito ang gagamiting AMSC sa computation.
    Kung gusto ng member, puede niyang kunin in advance yong first 18 monthly pensions (lump sum), and then after 18 months, mag-umpisa na yong monthly pension.

  23. juliet on January 24th, 2014 6:45 am


    Good day,how are you?
    It is nice to find a blogs like this which is informative and educational for us especially OFW..Thank you for your efforts and for imparting your knowledge to us.

    Madam,I just want to ask about pag-ibig website about contributions and also philhealth..Last year I paid my philhealth and pag ibig together with my renewal or payments of my owwa in Tacloban before i went back Dubai after my one month vacation last october, did ikknow if my father hospitalization is covered Sa philhealth ko..isa po Kasi akong single mother….pwede mo po ba ako matulubgan?thnx

  24. Nora on January 24th, 2014 3:54 pm

    Hi juliet, thank you very much for appreciating my blog. Means a lot. About your Philhealth: Your father can only be your dependent if he’s 60 years old or older. If he is and if your Philhealth member data was not yet updated, email your father a copy of your OEC, a copy of your ID and your birth cert so he can show these docs when needed. For OFWs, Philhealth coverage is within one year from date of premium payment — dates are in your OEC Philhealth receipt. About Pag-ibig: Do you already have a Pag-ibig MID no.? If not yet, this is how to get your Pag-ibig MID no. Pag meron ka nang Pag-ibig MID, you can pay your contributions sa IRemit remittance partners diyan like Al Ghurair Exchange, Al Neel, Al Nebal or Alukkas. Take care and continue to be strong for yourself and your family

  25. Christine De Guzman on January 28th, 2014 12:24 pm

    Hello po. Ask ko lang po sana na almost 15 yrs po akong OFW at yung agency po dito sa pinas ay ng deduct ng SSS sa allotment ko. At ng vinerify ko po kung nag reremit ang agency ko ay since October 2011 ay di na nahulugan ng agency ko ang SSS…. January 2012 pa po ay andito na po ako sa Pinas hanggang ngaun. Gusto ko po sana mag hulog ulit ng contribution paano po ang gagawin ko.

  26. Nora on January 28th, 2014 3:04 pm

    Hi Christine, yes, you can continue paying your contributions. Choose your contribution amount, then go to Bayad Center or SSS to pay using RS5 form. Check “Voluntary” sa Type of Payor. Enroll in online SSS so you can track your SSS data.

  27. maricar on January 28th, 2014 3:17 pm

    mam’am hanggang ngayon po ay nalilito pa din ako sa pag compute ng sss maternity .. eto po ang mga hulog since nag trabaho ako:

    July 2010 to October 2010
    November 2010 to April 2011
    July 2011 to June 2012
    February 2013 to April 2013
    after ko po sa mga employer ko nag voluntary na po ko ng 364 per month start ng April 2013 to June 2013 at hnd ko po nahulugan yung July 2013- September 2013 pero nakapag hulog naman po ako ng October to December 2013

    manganganak po ako ng February 6, 2014 mga magkano po kaya aabutin ung reimbursement ko ?

  28. Nora on January 28th, 2014 8:15 pm

    Hi maricar, your semester of delivery is Oct 2013 to Mar2014, so ang 12-month period na titingnan ng SSS ang 6 highest salary credits mo ay within Oct 2012 to Sep 2013. Kung 5 months na 364 ang nabayaran mo, ang 5 highest salary credits mo ay 5 na 3500.
    3500 x 5 = 17500
    17500 / 180 days = 97.22
    97.22 x 60 days = 5833 pesos, ito ang benefit pag normal delivery
    97.22 x 78 days = 7853 pesos, ito ang benefit pag CS

  29. lourdes on February 1st, 2014 12:41 pm

    hello po.. ask ko lng if I can pay may sss salary loan in advance as in fully paid. Bale naaproved po loan ko nung august 28, 2013 @ 28,000.00 and then ung deduction nagstart nung october 1, naiinip po ako kase matagl ung 2 years tapos my interst pa eh nagkaron naman po extra money to pay para buo n yung salary ko na marersiv monthly. Pano po kaya ang computation ng interest nun at magkano po kaya total ng babayadan ko para dun sa loan balance. thank you so much po.

  30. Nora on February 2nd, 2014 8:13 am

    Hi lourdes, that’s a wise decision. Check your loan balance in your online SSS account. Usually, the loan balance is not updated immediately, even if your latest loan payment has been posted already. But at least, the loan balance there will give you an idea.

  31. teresita on February 21st, 2014 3:06 am

    For the last 5 years I paid P18720.00 a year to complete the 120 months requirement to avail of the sss pension. How much should I receive in lump sum after December 2014

  32. Nora on February 22nd, 2014 9:34 pm

    Hi teresita, are you turning 60 years old in Dec 2014? If you qualify for pension, then you will get pension, and not lumpsum. Since you said that you paid 1560 for the last 5 years (assuming you’re retiring after these 5 years), and you paid for exactly 10 years, then your average monthly salary credit is 15k. Your monthly pension will be 40% of average monthly salary credit = 40% x 15k = 6k

  33. Taboy on March 3rd, 2014 11:52 pm

    What if I have been contributing every month over the allowed amount. What happen to the excess contributions. Can i claim it back? What will be the procedure.

  34. Nora on March 4th, 2014 8:16 am

    Hi Taboy, do you mean you were paying more than the maximum, which was 1560 until Dec 2013, and 1760 starting Jan 2014? If yes and if you enrolled in the SSS Flexi-Fund and if each excess was at least 200 pesos, the excess should have been credited to your Flexi-Fund. Are you enrolled with online SSS? Do you see that your contributions are posted? With the excess deducted? If not yet enrolled, register at to check how your contributions are being posted. When a number is asked during registration, choose 6 digits from your transaction no. Comment again so I can make suggestions depending on your response.

  35. soc on March 20th, 2014 5:13 pm

    Good PM po. Ask ko lang po kung mayroon pa kayong 1998 contribution table para makita ko po yung salary credit ng contribution ko sa SSS.

  36. Nora on March 21st, 2014 6:15 pm

    Hi soc, sorry wala ako. If I have time, I might look for it. To estimate your salary credit in 1998, i-divide mo yong contribution mo by 8.4%. Halimbawa, 672 ang contribution mo: 672 / .084 = 8,000, so 8k ang salary credit mo noon. Ang maximum salary credit in 1998 was 11k.
    Starting Jan this year, 11% of salary credit na ang contribution.

  37. nilda v. pineda on March 25th, 2014 12:47 pm

    Good afternoon, ask ko lang po kung pwede kong i-upgrade ang monthly contribution ko? Before, employed po ako and if i remember right nasa 700 na po ang monthly contribution ko. After I resigned nag voluntary po ako, since wala akong steady income i decided to contribute 520. Ano po ba ang maganda kong gawin. Thanks.

  38. jasmin Brigoli dela cerna on March 25th, 2014 4:39 pm

    hi good afternoon,
    Noong nagtrabaho pa ako sa Mitsumi company member ako ng SSS,Year 2000 nag resign ako,puede pabang mag voluntary ako ngaun?puedi pa ba ang number ko noong una na gagamitin ko sa pagbyad ngaun?

    Thank you.

  39. Nora on March 25th, 2014 10:42 pm

    Hi nilda, yes, you can increase or decrease by 1 or 2 levels at a time. Puedeng this March ay 550 then sa April ay 605, then sa May ay 660 then sa June ay 715 until you reach yong gusto mong amount. Enroll in online SSS so you can track your records

  40. Nora on March 25th, 2014 11:19 pm

    Hi jasmin, yes, use your SSS number when you were employed. You must have only one SSS no. On the RS5 payment form, check Voluntary. After ma-post ang payment mo, register with SSS online, so you can track your records. To register, you use 6 digits from your payment OR transaction no.

  41. amelia on March 28th, 2014 1:21 am

    Hi po ,asked previous paying maximum 1560/month ,now i am due for my quarterly this coming april 10,2014 ,for Jan,Feb,March contribution 2014 and for the new table i dont know which is ? please reply soon

  42. amelia on March 28th, 2014 1:29 am

    Hi ,additional sa questions ko,i will be 58yrs old this year ,so 2 yrs to go will be 60 and retiring age from my work also ,what u will advice for my contribution?

  43. Nora on March 28th, 2014 12:11 pm

    Hi amelia, the maximum contribution now, starting Jan 2014, is 1,760 per month. You’re right in choosing to pay the maximum contribution. The higher the contributions in the last 5 years prior to retirement, the higher the pension.

  44. Mil on March 28th, 2014 7:16 pm

    Nors, I am an OFW, before ay naghuhulog po ako ng 312, then nag change status po ako from SE to OFW sa SSS branch, then bigla ko po tinaasan ang hulog ko from 312 to 1,300, then lately ay ginawa ko na po itong 1,760 na walng pasabi sa SSS, basta nilagay ko na lang na 1,760, but my status ay OFW, credit po kaya yung hulog ko without any questions?

  45. Nora on March 29th, 2014 7:52 am

    Hi Mil, since OFW naman ang member status mo, okay na, kasi sa remittance companies abroad ay hindi gumagamit ng RS5 form para masulatan mo sana yong Declaration of Earnings. Have you enrolled with SSS online? So you can check your member status and how your payments are credited and if you have a Date of Coverage.

  46. amelia on March 29th, 2014 12:29 pm

    hi again,sa i remitt dto ako ngbabayad at ibig mo sabhin ay basta i change ko to max ng hinde ako punta or to see any sss representative

  47. Nora on March 29th, 2014 11:29 pm

    Hi amelia, nasabi mo na 1560 na ang binabayaran mo, so maximum na dati pa ang binabayaran mo, so tama lang na maximum pa rin ang babayaran mo. Dahil sila na mismo ang nag-increase ng maximum rate from 1560 to 1760, so 1760 na ang bayaran mo, at hindi na kelangang magpunta pa sa SSS. See this chart:
    Register online so you can see how your contributions are posted and you can see if you have a Date of Coverage.

  48. miguel l. agustin on March 31st, 2014 9:43 am

    hello po, tanong ko lang kung mag offer ba uli ang sss ng amnesty sa delinquent sss loan payment. matagal na ako nag resign sa last employer ko, akala ko inawas na nila yung balance ng sss loan ko sa separation pay ko. after checking with sss recently yung status ng contribution ko, saka ko lang na laman na may balance pa ako kasama na yung penalties and interest. more than 10 years na ako na nag resign, kaya malaki din ang penalties. salamat po

  49. Nora on March 31st, 2014 12:33 pm

    Hi miguel, hindi ko alam kung kelan uli magkaroon ng loan penalty condonation program. Mag-request na lang sa Facebook page ng SSS; siguro kung maraming magre-request, mag-launch uli sila. Merong sagot ang SSS dito:

  50. nilda on April 1st, 2014 2:15 pm

    hi good afternoon, tanong ko lang po pano po ang pag upgrade ng contributions? thanks

  51. Kate Cruz on April 2nd, 2014 3:09 pm

    Good afternoon po, pano kung tapos na ang trabaho ko as ofw. Gusto ko pong mag voluntary contribution na lang since mataas na po para sa akin ang 1760pesos. Pwede po ba yun? Patulong po pano gagawin… Thanks!


  52. Nora on April 2nd, 2014 9:16 pm

    Hi nilda, if you increase by 1 or 2 levels, just pay the increased premium, there’s no need to ask permission from SSS. You can increase by 1 or 2 levels from month to month. Pag gusto mong increase by more than 2 levels, use RS5 form and fill up the Declaration of Earnings at the lower portion of the form.

  53. Nora on April 4th, 2014 7:29 pm

    Hi Kate, yes, you can continue contributing as Voluntary. If you decrease from 1760 by more than 2 levels, sa SSS ka muna unang magbayad para maka-fill-up ka sa RS5 form. Fill up the Declaration of Earnings sa lower portion of the form, i-match mo yong earnings mo sa contribution na gusto mo, and then pay. Keep this form in your files. Pag age 50s ka na, increase your contributions, kasi ang basis ng pension ay average salary credit. Mas malamang na ang average salary credit for the last 5 years immediately before semester of retirement ay higher than the overall average salary credit.
    For next payments, puede na sa Bayad Center or SM Business Center.

  54. jo on April 22nd, 2014 11:14 pm

    hi po, gusto ko pong malaman kung pwede ba gamitin yng bagong UMID I.D. sa SSS kasi po may ngpapa continue nang SSS contribution niya pero nakalimutan po niya or di na niya mahagilap yung mismong SSS I.D. number po niya for reference kung sakali..pwede po ba yun? pano bo ba? salamat po.

  55. Nora on April 24th, 2014 9:47 am

    Hi jo, puedeng i-verify ang SSS no. sa SSS branch. Fill up verification slip (date of birth, birthplace, etc). If you’re verifying for another person, get an authorization letter and her/his ID.
