SSS Maternity Benefit Claim Documents for Miscarriage

Last updated on January 2nd, 2017 at 01:13 pm

 Updated July 2, 2016

Here’s a list of documents that you need to submit when filing your SSS maternity benefit claim for your miscarriage:

(Raspa or D&C was not performed)

1.  Maternity Benefit Application (if Voluntary, Self-employed, OFW or Separated)

Maternity Benefit Reimbursement Application (if Employed)

2.  Maternity Notification
(stamped by SSS before date of miscarriage)

Note: If you were not able to file your Maternity Notification before miscarriage, fill up and submit Maternity Notification.
In case SSS requires it, prepare a letter to SSS explaining why your Maternity Notification was not filed before miscarriage.

3. SSS ID card
(or your SSS ID application acknowledgment stub
and 2 valid IDs with signature and at least 1 ID
with photo)

4. Obstetrical History indicating number of pregnancies and
Hydatidiform Mole (H-mole), certified by attending doctor,
with PRC License No., printed name and signature

5. Pregnancy Test result before and after miscarriage
or Ultrasound Report before and after miscarriage

6. Medical Certificate, indicating circumstances of miscarriage, with explanation of why D and C or Raspa was not performed, issued by attending doctor
(Naraspa or D&C was performed)

1.  Maternity Benefit Application (if Voluntary, OFW, Self-Employed, or Separated)

Maternity Benefit Reimbursement Application (if Employed)

2.  Maternity Notification
(stamped by SSS before date of miscarriage)

Note:  If  Maternity Notification was not filed before miscarriage, fill up and submit Maternity Notification.  In case SSS requires it, prepare a letter to SSS explaining why you were not able to file your notification before miscarriage.

3. SSS ID card
( or your SSS ID application acknowledgment stub
and 2 valid IDs with signature and at least 1 ID
with photo)

4. Obstetrical History indicating number of pregnancies and
Hydatidiform Mole (H-Mole), certified by attending doctor,
with PRC License No., printed name and signature

5. Dilatation & Curettage (D&C) Report,
certified by authorized hospital representative

6. Histopathology Report, certified by authorized hospital representative

7. Pregnancy Ultrasound Reports or Pregnancy Test results
before and after D&C

8. SSS might require additional documents if basic documents are defective or
not valid


If your miscarriage occurred while employed or within 6 months of your date of separation from your company, submit these additional documents:

.  Certificate of Separation from Employment,
with effective date of separation
.  Certification of Non-Advancement of Maternity Benefit
(certification from employer that no advance payment was granted to you)
. Two sheets of L501 Form from your former Employer
– The signatory in all these 3 documents should be the same person.
– The signatures in all 3 forms should be the same.
– When you go to your former company to ask for L501, bring 2 sheets of L501 form in case your former employer does not have this form. You can get this from SSS or you can download from

Remember that the maternity benefit is a payment for the no. of days you missed work due to child delivery or miscarriage, so you should take your maternity leave, as this is the type of leave being paid by the SSS maternity benefit.

Make sure also that you’re eligible for the maternity benefit based on the basic requirements, such as no. of contributions within the 12-month period before your semester of delivery.

For Those Who Went AWOL, or Have a Labor Complaint Against Their Former Company, or Have Strained Relations with Their Former Employer,

you can use this Affidavit of Undertaking form, issued by SSS.

Here’s helpful information from Michelle who filed her SSS Maternity Claim for Miscarriage in May 2016:

I had filed my Maternity Claim for MISCARRIAGE (Incomplete Abortion with D&C Procedure) this May 30,2016. I wasn’t able to talk to the doctor (cause there’s none on duty), so I was told to go back on June 1 for approval.

I just got my claim and was APPROVED already (yeey!) and luckily my company would reimburse me right away this coming pay-out. Here is the list of the documents I’d submitted. Hope this will be of great help.

  • MAT2
  • Med certificate (Orig copy)
  • Complete Obstetrical History (form available at SSS or your HR Dept)
  • Clinical Case summary/medical abstract (Certified true copy)
  • Discharge summary (certified true copy)
  • Surgical Memorandum (certified true copy)
  • Histopathogy Report (certified true copy)
  • Mat 1
  • Ultrasound result before my miscarriage (certified true copy)

(I didn’t have ultrasound result after since I have other supporting docs)

  • Photocopy of valid IDs
  • Anesthesia Record (I guess this was just a supporting document but will be given still by the hospital)
  • Our HR dept also provided me with my cert of contributions to SSS for the past 6 months (but I guess this is just a supporting doc also)

Make sure to have the hispathology report to be certified true copy because this was a big issue with my colleague’s application. Since it was done by another lab, the hospital refused to certify it and SSS wants it certified.
If your hospital is also conducting the same test, better do it there if the price is reasonable. I got mine at P1,200 but the price range outside is from 900-2500 depending on the laboratory.
And lastly, make sure the date of your procedure would be the same in all your documents to avoid inconvenience at SSS.
I hope this will help because before I was confused with the list of requirements given by SSS as what were given at the Record Section because they were labeled differently.

  2. Hi Nora,

    I hope you can help me with this. Hi good day to you.

    Des here! My SSS number is 0632417016.

    I had experienced an intermittent spotting for 3 weeks lat November. Last Nov 27th when I had my check up, I found out that I was 6 going 7 weeks pregnant and was high risk for threatened abortion. The Obstetrician told me to go on bed rest and was advised to take medication, and trans vaginal ultrasound.

    Indeed I had my medication but was failed to do trans-vaginal. It was last November 29 when I experienced sudden heavy spotting , and I thought that it’s not that serious, up until I had a little bit of heavy bleeding. I had another PT at home and I found out that the result is already negative.It was a day after that I had my trans vaginal ultrasound ,dated Dec 1st . In result, the specialist who had checked on my uterus says that everything is fine, and there’s none in my uterus, except for poor endometrium or a thin uterine lining.

    Now my problem is that I was absent for a week now, and I don’t know if I would still be eligible for my maternity benefit.

    Need your help about this.

  26. Hi ms. Nora, I was about 26 weeks when we found out na walang heartbeat si baby & based on ultrasound 18 weeks lang siya, so pinag induce labor ako ng ob. On the day of delivery my ob advise na mag undergo din ako ng d&c since hindi daw lumabas ung inunan ng baby. After a week of my operation,upon requesting sa hospital ng medical records ko wala daw hispathology report dahil hindi daw nagpagawa yung ob ko, operative technique/d&c report lang ang nabigay sakin. As per my ob hindi daw napagawan ng hispathology report dahil yung baby ko malaking size na ng fetus na nailabas since 18weeks na daw & sinurender daw samin kaya hindi daw naipadala sa laboratory claiming na yung baby lang daw ang specimen sa operation ko. But I think negligence ng ob ko na hindi magpagawa ng histopath report dahil nagundergo naman ako ng d&c which I think yung pregnancy tissues ang dapat pinadala niya sa laboratory as specimen. She advise na magpa ultrasound ako after operation ang isubmit since ang kailangan naman dw ng sss is proof na nagbuntis ako & wala ng pregnancy evidence after ng operation. Madedeny po ba yung claims ko without hispathology report? Hope you respond po..thanks

  27. hi po. nagpacheck up po ako sa ob gyne lying in clinic nitong march 2017. nag pt po ako ng twice at positive po ung result ng pt ko kaya agad ako nagpunta sa ob gyne lying in clinic for check up. every month po ako nagpapacheck up sa ob gyne and sa kanya din ako ako nagpapagawa ng medical certificate ko pag nagkakasakit ako related to my pregnancy. nainform ko rin po sa hr namin na buntis ako and nagsubmit po ako ng letter notification na buntis ako for document purposes. hndi po ako nakapagsubmit ng mat 1 dahil wala pa po ako ultrasound kasi po by 5th month po sana ako magsusubmit para po makatipid po sana ko dahil sa 5th month pwede na malaman ung gender via pelvic ultrasound. sa hndi inaasahan nitong june 28 nakaramdam ako ng abdominal pain at agad ako nagpunta sa ob gyne lying in clinic magpa urinalysis daw ako baka daw may uti ako. nung nakuha ko result ko sa urinalysis bumalik ako sa ob gyne clinic ko para magpaconsult ulit ng june 29. nung june 29 ng gabi nagkaroon ako ng spotting kaya agad ako nagpunta ulit sa ob gyne clinic para magpaconsult. binigyan po niya ako ng gamot and request for transvi ultrasound. kung magpatuloy daw ng spotting agad daw ako punta sa hospital. may heartbeat naman siya bago ako umuwi at hindi na rin ako nakaramdam ng spotting. pero may slight on and off lang na pain sa lower abdominal pain. then june 30, 2017 ng umaga nagpatransvi/pelvic ultrasound po ako lumabas sa utz result ko na demise fetal na siya. hndi pa rin po ako naconvince kaya sa result kaya nabpa second opinion ako sa qcgh at nirequire ulit ako magpa utz. nung nagpa ultrasound ako lumabas ulit sa result na demise fetus na siya kaya po inadmit ako. ang diagnosis po ay t/c missed abortion at raraspahin po ako. may pinirmahan ako na form na pumapayag ako na raspahin. at may form po na galing sa pathology na request for surgical pathology consultation for dilatation and curretage. ang sabi ng histopath makukuha namin result within 5 days. ang problem ko lang po 3 months pa lang po ako sa bagong company. (february 23 2017 up to present). nagresign ako sa dati kong work nitong february 20, 2017. ang last post po is until july 2016 pa lang po. hmdi ko po alam kung napost na po ung ibang contribution na kinaltas po sa kin from august 2016 to january 2017. nung nagfollow up ako ang sabi po napost na daw pero hindi pa rin po ako convince. makakakuha po ba ako ng benefit? at ang sabi po ng hr ko sa present work ko kung makabalik din daw ba ako agad sa work ngaung linggo kasi kung hndi daw papalitan daw po nila ako? eh nagsabi po ako via text phone nung june 29, 2017 ng gabi na hndi po ako ulit makakapasok dahil nagspotting ako at papunta po ako ng clinic at nung june 30 tumawag po sa hr namin na na admit na ako sa ospital dahil wala na heartbeat ang baby ko sa sinapupunan ko at need ako maraspa. hndi ba sila aware na 60 days kapag miscarriage? ang tanong ko lang po may exemption po ba sa ibang company kung sakali na 3 months pa lang ako sa bago kong work hndi ako makakakuha ng maternity sa knila? entitled po ba ako na makakuha ng maternity po? salamat po at sana po masagot nyo po ang aking hinaing ko po

Its gonna be for a month now since the submission. I even check the online banking for RCBC which is my preferred bank for claim deposit. And still no amount was deposited. Hope you can help me with this. Thanks in advance.

  33. Hi Ms. Nora.. I got miscarriage June1. Wala na pong D and C kasi po niresetahan ako ng gamit ng OB KO since less than 6weeks palang po ako. I have complete docs ultrasound b4 and after. My question po is, June 1-8 po ung nakalagay na bed rest KO sa unang med cert KO. Tapos po humingi po ako ng fut to work nung june9,2017 binigyan naman po ako kasi akala KO kaya KO na. Ngaun po sumasakit sakit po ung tyan ko. Pwede po ba ako mag pa issue ng bed rest sa OB KO kahit nakahingi na KO ng fit to work nung nakaraan? Salamat po sa maagang response.

  34. Hi Melissa, you can file kahit many months na ang lumipas, up to 10 years, pero siempre file as soon as you can. Here are some tips from those whose SSS maternity benefit claims for miscarriage were approved by SSS.

  35. Just want to ask lang po. Naraspa po kasi ako last April 23 kung magfifile po sana ako ng reinbursement matatanggap pa po kaya? Ilang days po ba ang deadline ng documents??thank you po

  36. Hi Jovel, yes, you can try filing, kasi meron ka namang histopathology report and the other more important documents. Read some approved sss claims:

  37. Hi Ms. Nora Nakunan po ako May 24 , Incomplete abortion Open cervix 10 4/7 weeks kaso wala po akong check up sa Ob-gynie kasi po i have work and may 20 lang po ako nag P.t kaya hindi ko po agad nalaman , Niraspa po ako. yung docs ko lang po dito is Histopathology, Obstetrical, tapos D&C po. Okay na po ba yun para makapag file ako sa SSS, okay lang po ba na wala akong check up before bago ako makunan ?? Maraming Salamat po 🙂

  38. Hi Jieshell, nakapagpa-ultrasound or ob checkup ka ba before miscarriage? Kasi yong OB na yon ang puede mong balikan to request for your OB history. Try mo ring humingi ng ob history at medical certificate (you were pregnant and you miscarried completely and you did not need to undergo D&C) doon sa ob na pinuntahan mo after miscarriage.

  39. Jieshell Bontilao

    Hi po. Nagmiscarriage po ako nung april 23 sa bahay lng po tapos kinabukasan ngpunta po ako sa macupsi clinic para mg pa ultrasound kaso lang po wala pong nakitang baby eh. So pumunta ako sa isang ob-gyne para mgpacheck up tapos po sabi nya na complete miscarriage daw po yong nangyari sa kin..tapos sabi nya na hindi na daw kailangan magraspa kasi daw po close daw yung cervix ko…binigyan nya po ako ng resita..
    May problema lng po kasi ako sa aking requirements kasi wala po akong obstetrical history ..

  40. Hi Johnalynn, oo hintayin mo ang histopath report kasi yan ang isa sa most important documents na titingnan ng SSS. Matagal naman ang time frame for filing ng maternity claim, so okay pa kahit after one month or more ka pa mag-file.

  41. Miscarriage po ako. Niraspa po ako nung may23. Ung histopath po after 1most p dw po result hhntayin k po b un.

  42. Hi robina, request your OB for a certification that you were pregnant and that you had a miscarriage/complete abortion so you did not have to undergo D&C.

  43. Hi maria, collect all the docs that you can get, and then try filing. The SSS officer will evaluate your documents. Here are some examples of approved miscarriage claims

  44. hi po. im 7weeks pregnant and nagbleeding ako before ko pa nlaman n buntis ako then nagpunta ako ng ob ko to confirm na un nga buntis nga ko tlga and im having complete abortion na pla.. ask ko lng mkkakuha b ako nh maternity benefit khit wla akong ultrasound report only the histopath and ob certification lang.. hipe someone can answer me thank u.

  46. Hyacinth Francisco

    Hi po ms nora, paano po kung ung histopath report ay ginawa sa ibang lab? Paano po ma certified true copy?

  47. Hyacinth Francisco

    Hi po, paano po kung yung histopath report ay ginawa sa ibang lab? Paano po ma certified true copy?

  48. Hi ms. Nora goodevening. All of my requirements is already compelete naraspa po ako. Now ko lang din po ipapass yung MAT1 and MAT2 ko sa HR ko kaya po hindi ko agad napass yung MAT1 ko kase po 3mos po nung nalaman ko na pregnant ako kase po iregular ako and then 5mos nawala si baby, kaya this day ko lang din po aayusin lahat ng MAT1 and MAT2 ko. Idedenied po ba ng SSS yun?

  49. Hi ilang days po pwede mag file sa sss after maraspa?

  50. Hi Geraldine, wait ka na lang and hope for approval. Enroll in SSS online so you can track the processing of your claim.

  51. Hi aris, SSS pays the number of actual leave days. Kung malaman ng SSS na 7 days lang ang actual leave ng wife mo, SSS will pay only for 7 days. I wonder why she was not advised by her HR. Sana hindi muna pumasok agad. About your 3rd maternity claim, yes, if you can submit all the required documents and they are valid, yes, SSS will approve your 3rd claim. Make sure to have an ultrasound that will prove her pregnancy.

  52. Hi.

    My wife had a miscarriage. Pero hindi na nya kinailangan mag leave ng matagal, nasa 7 days lang sya nag leave. nakapag submit na kami ng lahat ng documents at nakapag claim na kami, nag bigay ng advance check yung employer. Now ang sabi ng employer. Kapag daw kulang ang binigay ng SSS ay mag salary deduction na lang daw sila. Tama ba yun? Hindi ba yung binigay na computation ng employer ay yun din naman ang bibigay ng SSS?

    Tapos after a month, pregnant na ulit ang wife ko. Pwede ba kami ulit kami mag claim kahit months lang ang pagitan? This will be our 3rd claim pag nagkataon. First sa eldest namin, second yung miscarriage and then this one, ma approve kaya yung maternity claim namin? salamat po.

  53. hello miss nora. naka pag submit na ako nang maternity claim sa sss den yung docs ko is mc lang na incomplete abortion, mc na no need na for d&c report at saka ultra sound binigay na sa akin yung acknowledgement receipt may possibilities ba na ma denied kahit tinanggap na nila? kasi baka hingan pa ako nang other docs.

  54. Gud Eve PO Ms. Nora, naraspa PO ako nung April 4 SA lying in clinics PO, complete PO ako ultrasound before and after nawalan PO KC heartbeat baby .. mag3months p lang PO baby, may Medical certificate PO, hispathology report, Yung D&c report PO hand written lang PO Ng doctor.. ok Lang PO b Yun?.. Isa p PO KC Yung lying in clinic PO pinagraspahan ko, Hindi PO pala dapat ngcoconduct Ng raspa SA clinic NILA.. ok Lang PO b un as long PO na complete nman PO requirements ko

  55. Hi Rose, yon bang med certificate mo ay signed by a licensed ob-gyne and merong license number? Mag-request ka pa ng ob history. At padagdagan mo yong med certificate mo ng statement na nagkaroon ka ng complete miscarriage (with date) at hindi na kinailangan ng D&C. Then try to file. The SSS officer will screen your documents. They should be able to tell you if it will be approved.

  56. Hi ms. Nora… At 5mons. And 2 weeks.. Ngkaroon po aq ng miscarriage. Kaso s bahay lng and baby is dead. Mtgal nko ponapa bed rest kc hnd tlg mgnda ang start plng ng pregnancy. Meron lng aq before ultrasound kaso 2mons plng tiyan ko nun. Also after ultrasound at med. Cert lng mkakuha p kya aq ng claim? Auko tlg mg mat leave kng hnd mbbyaran. Tnx po employed po aq

  57. Hi Vanessa, kung walang histopathology, maghahanap ng SSS ng medical certificate from your ob explaining na nag-miscarriage ka at kung bakit hindi na nagawa ang raspa.

  58. Hello. Pede pa po ba magclaim ng Sickness Benefit kung pang 5th pregnancy ko na and na-miscarriage ako? So instead of maternity, sickness na lang i-file ko?

  59. Hi po… nagkaroon din ako ng blighted ovum result sa transv ko. Nakapagfile ako sa sss ng mat1 pero wala po ako d&c report since lumabas nman ng kusa ung nasa loob ng tiyan ko. Wat if ultrasound lng meron ako makukuha ko pa kaya ang maternity ko?

  60. Hi Yang, maaprubahan lang ang SSS maternity benefit for miscarriage kung complete documents: ultrasound report before and after miscarriage, histopathology report or OB medical certificate explaining why D&C was not performed, plus the other required docs. Tingnan mo kung maka-produce ka ng documents. If not, file for sickness leave benefit. Magtanong ka rin ng advice sa HR ninyo kasi marami na rin dapat silang experience about this matter.

  61. Hello po ate Nora.Ask ko lang po kung may SSS benefits din ba na makukuha yun naturally miscarriage? Nakapag pasa ako ng SSS mat1 then blighted ovum ang result March 29. Hindi po ako pumayag sa DC kaya nagwait po ako na naturally sya ilabas. Then April 18 ok na po ultrasound ko. Advised ng OB fit to work n ko on May 2.
    May benefits po b ko sa SSS ? Sickness po b or Maternity ang isusubmit ko?
    Salamat po

  62. Hi Ms.Nora,June 2015,nag PT po ako positive.Nag pcheck-up ako s LYING- IN.July 11,nag spotting ako yun din po araw ng Ultrasound ko,kaso wala dw ung mag ultrasound hindi dadating.
    Nagpunta ako sa iba kaso wala din kasi sabado daw.hanggang sa ngpcheck up ako s OB.Wala dw magpprint,kaya sinilip nya nlng s monitor nkta nya si baby no heart beat.After po nun,bgiglang lakas ng bledding ko.tinakbo ako s hospital,pagdating dun inay-ie lng ako ng OB tas chineck nya nga maigi ung pwerta ko..Mya-mya sabay sbi ng OB andito na ung fetus.Wala nmn ako nramdaman na abdominal pain.after that,pinabalik ako kinabukasan inultrasound,clear nmn dw.walang gamot na inireseta skin ung OB.Sa gnitong case po ba may makukuha po ba akong maternity?nakapgpasa ako ng MAT1.meron lnmg ako,medical ceretificate.wala ako OB history.katwiran ng OB wala dw siya ginawa ano dw illagy nya sa form?
    Ano po ang pwede kong gawin?mula nuon di nko bumalik ng SSS.may same case din ako walng OB history pero nakakuha ng maternity?thnks po.sana masagot nyo po…

  63. Hi good evening ask ko lng po if makakakuha ako benefits. March 16 nag PT ako and it’s positive. Di pa ako nakapag file sa employer ko agad. March 19 nag spotting ako and march 23 na miscarriage na nga. My 1st ultrasound walang nakita sabi ng Ob bka 1week pa pero may sign na nga po ko early pregnancy since nag positive na ko pt and yung lining na tinatawg nya is 1.5cm na indicates that i’am pregnant march 20 yung then since continuous parin bleeding ko pinabalik ako for 2nd tvs and sabi sakin complete abortion na nga and yung lining is .5 cm nlng. Di na po ko niraspa since nagnormal na daw po yung lining. Medical certificate lang ang meron ako at yung 2 ultrasound. Since sa clinic lang ako friendly care wala daw medical abstract kasi sa ospital lang daw meron nun.

  64. Hi. I had miscarriage last March 6,2017…i only receive my d and c report first week ng april. Is there a deadline so I can reimburse my maternity claim? Since higit one month na after my miscarriage

  65. Hi Anne, based sa mga comments dito, kinoconsider naman ng SSS yong mga walang MAT1 basta merong proofs that you were pregnant like ultrasound report or medical certificate from ob-gyne before miscarriage at histopathology report, plus the other required forms and documents.

  66. Hi! I am 14weeks pregnant and had a miscarriage last Friday. I haven’t submitted MAT1 yet. Am I still eligible for the SSS benefits? Thank you for the reply po.

  67. Hello po thank you po s reply,, gusto ko n po makabalik s work ko binigyan n ako ng fit to work certificate ng ob ko ngayon april 20 pa 3 weeks po un actually,, my instances po ba na payagan ako ang employer? Slamat po

  68. Hi Shayne, bakit mas gusto mong ma-shorten ang leave mo? Hindi ba na-approve ng SSS ang maternity benefit claim mo? Usually 60 days din ang ibinibigay ng ob-gyne sa miscarriage leave at usually 60 days din ang ina-approve ng SSS basta complete documents.

  69. Hi im shayne,, i case po ba n my certification of fit to work n pwde n po ba ma shorten ang maternity leave? Khit 3-4 weeks lng? My case is d and c missed abortion po

  70. Hi Sharon, mas malamang ma-approve kung meron kang histopathology report, at yong iba pang required documents. Kung maka-submit ka ng certification from your ob-gyne na naging pregnant ka, puede rin ito na substitute ng ultrasound report before miscarriage.

  71. Paano po kapag walang ultrasoun report before miscarriage?.Ano pong document ang kailangan?PAra po maclaim ung benefits.

  72. Hello po.Paano po kapag walang ultrasound report before misscarriage?.Ano po maganda gawin para mai claim ko yong maternity benefits ko po?

  73. Hi jen, sorry about your situation. I’ve received similar concerns like yours, and I can say that many OBs refuse to give certain certifications. The SSS also need documents to prove your pregnancy, and if they don’t get these docs, they reject the claim. There are those who have almost complete documents, missing only the histopath report, and their claims were denied. Sorry I’m not sure what to advise you kasi bale 2 or 3 docs lang ang maibibigay mo sa SSS (ultrasound after, MAT2 and consultation/prescription slip), kasi hindi mo naman mapilit yong OB kung ayaw niyang magbigay ng certification. I don’t know why some OBs can’t explain their side in a kinder way, and not sound accusatory. Talk na lang with your HR about what to do.

  74. hi po ms.Nora,

    really need your advise, I was unaware that I’m pregnant not until I had an unusual bleeding, bale, at first akala ko po delayed lang ako due to stress for a week, since I am working in a call center in makati, and I live way too far from workplace, (valenzuela) ska since i’m unaware, y u ng mga nafefeel kong cramps akala.ko signs lang na magkakaroon ako, then I had my first p.t last jan.28,2017, ang LMP ko po ay dec. 24,2016, so mga nasa 3-4 days na ang latency ng period ko, sa p.t po very visible yung purple line sa C and may trace po ng line sa T, so ang understanding ko po dun is negative, kase sa first 2 kids ko po 2 visible lines agad. I had an.unusual.bleeding the next days, at nung feb2 ng gabi may lumalabas ng blood clots, at suddenly may parang malaking laman, which is so unusual, dinala mister ko sa ospital due to.backpain at.abdominal.pain, sabi I p.t daw ako, I told them I have p.t’s I took the past few days.ago, dun nila kinonfirm na positive daw po un, I was asked for an.ultrasound but nung result sa ultrasound sabi wala na daw laman, so nung bumalik ako sa o.p.d I was advise ng another doctor na.tumingin sa akin na I was a complete abortion, no need for d&c since manipis na yung.lining ko at bka mabutas matres pag nag d&c pa, now pina leave ako sa company, and was given forms for mat claim, but i’m having difficulty sa pagkuha ng requirments, ayaw ako doktor sa o.p.d ng cert, stating d&c is no longer needed, kase daw po matic na na indicated na coplete abortion and so di na un need, sabi ng o.b wala naman daw kase akong record before pregnancy s knla kaya d daw.sla basta bsta pwede mgbgay ng mga ganun, i’m getting too stressed sa to now.pati.histopath report hinihingian ako wherein ako certification from my unhelpful o.b tas prng pinalalabas png most if the time ang gngawa dw kse papalaglag tas mgcclaim, my God I wasn’t even aware of it, what to do mam??

  75. Hi Abi, March bale ang contingency niya because she miscarried this month. Her semester of contingency is Oct 2016 to Mar 2017. SSS will look for at least 3 contributions within 12 months prior to her semester of contingency. Sorry she is not eligible kasi Sep lang ang contribution within the 12 months.

  76. Nakunan po pamangkin ko this week, at ilang less than 2mos pa Lang po yuñg ipinagbubuntis nya.entitled po ba siya sa SSS benefit for miscarriage though di sya naraspa…Sept 2016 po sya nagstart makaltasan Ng SSS contribution…Oct 23 yuñg sinabi sa kanyang due date nya

  77. Ibig svhn po..depnde parin pla sa hulog ung babayad skin sa leave s sss mam qualified nmn dw po ako ng para n po ako ng mat1 ung mat 2 is on going pa po…mallamn ko po ba kng mgknu mkukuha ko thrue on line?

  78. Hi glhendalyn, oo, dapat naka-leave ka ng 60 days kung yon ang isinulat ng OB mo, para mabayaran ka ng 60 days. Kung bumalik ka na sa work, at 40 days lang ang leave mo, 40 days din lang ang babayaran ng SSS. Magtanong ka rin sa HR ninyo. Make sure na complete and valid ang documents mo kasi sayang kung halimbawa nag-leave ka ng 60 days, then madisapprove naman ang claim mo due to lack of documents.
    Mag-enroll ka sa online SSS para makita mo yong estimated maternity benefits mo. Ang benefit ay depende sa 6 highest salary credits mo within the 12 months BEFORE your semester of miscarriage at sa number of days na ibibigay ng OB

  79. Ung 60 days po bng un dapt tlga nkaleave k wat if po kng ngwork k kc ok kna po..dnb bbyaran ung days mu..tska mis nora anu po kya ung 17k n cnv skin nun..kng base ng days ung dapat nmn plang mkukuha ko tnxs…

  80. Hi glhendalyn, ang benefit mo ay based sa number of leave days given by your OB at sa average salary credit mo. Icheck mo na 60 days ang isulat ng OB mo sa medical certificate. Merong iba kasi na lower number ang isinusulat.

  81. Hi miss nora..ask k lng pasa po ako ng mat1..ko tas cnving 17k dw mkkuha means b nun ndi base un sa araw ng leave ko..basr b un sa hulog ko..niraspa po kc ako..un pdin b amount n mkukuha ko tnxs po

  82. Hi Sue, the Senate bill proposed that every miscarriage or delivery shall be covered. This means no more limit. But the bill will still need to be passed by the House, and then returned to the Senate, and then submitted to the President for signing.

  83. Hi Nora!With the new updated maternity benefit.Will they still cover the first 4 pregnancy/miscarriage or there is no limit anymore?

  84. Hello ms nora please reply po sa tanong ko. What if po wala akong histopathological report dahil hindi ko po agad napalaboratorry yung nkuha saken nung niraspa ako possible po bang hndi na ko maapprobahan ng sss. ?

  85. Hello, ask ko lng ms.nora, miscarriage po kase ung ipafile ko sa ss, last feb 27 nagspotting ako then 28 while on duty nag bbleed na ko ng malakas kinabukas nung nagpacheck up na kame ultrasound ung unang ginwa saken ng OB.wala na dw sya makita possible dw na nkunan na ko nung 28.pero before wala pa kong check up history na PT.pero lahat ng lab ko after kong mkunan is Positive ung PT ko. So hahanapan pa ba ko ng Sss ng PT ng before moscarriage?
    Then, no need na dw ako iraspa may pina take lng saken na gamot for 5days.possible kaya na irequest ko sa HR or OB na gumawa saken is file ko ng leave is for 1month ?kahit fit to work na ko ng 2weeks ?
    Thanks for the response.

  86. Hi Abegail, kelang January-April yong binayaran mo? January to April 2017? If yes, sorry hindi ka eligible for maternity benefit kasi nag-miscarriage ka this March and your semester of contingency is Oct 2016 to March 2017. This means ang hahanapin ng SSS is at least 3 contributions within Oct 2015 to Sep 2016. Ask others too

  87. Nagapply ako ng sss po last 2014 pero two months ko lang po nahulugan nagupdate po ako last january nagbayad po ako gang april ..nagfile ako ng mat1 po nung feb 20 pero namiscarriage ng march 7 ..may makukuha po ba ako kung sakali e jan-april p ang bayad k at dpat sept. P due date k

  88. Hi Mam, what if po hindi nakapag file ng Mat1, may makukuha pa po bang benefit? Nung Feb. 21, 2017 lng ako nakunan. And also, my last employer pa was June 2016. Qualified pa po ba?

  89. Hi po gudmorning ask q lng po ung D and C po b is different sa medical certification?

  90. hi ms. nora.. ask ko lang po ko kung need kaagad i submit ang requirements for maternity benefits if undergo pa ako sa medical treatment for incomplete abortion? kailangan ko pa kasi ng ultrasound report after my medical treatment .

  91. hi ms problema po kasi ako sa maternity benefits claim ko. Dun po sa birth certificate ng anak ko di po sinasadyang nakaligtaan ilagay yong middle name ko. ngayon po binalik sa po sa employer ko yong papers ko sa kadihalanang my discrepancy sa record nila kung saan my middle name po ako tapos pag dating sa anak ko nakaligtaan ilagay. tumawag po ako sa hotline nila wala po sila maibigay sa akin na sagot kung ano dokumento ang kailangan ko ipasa. sana po mabasa ko reply niyo s via email or dito.

  92. hi po,

    kapanganganak ko lang this month. from employed to voluntary member po ako. binigyan ako ng obstetrical history ng sss. ang problema d ko maalala ang 1st miscarriage ko. totoo po. ang mga files na nsubmit ko noon sa sss ay nandoon lahat sa employer ko dati. d rin ako nakapag keep ng copy. less than 8 weeks ako noon nang makunan at nakapag avail ng leave sa sss. tanong ko lang po d po ba makakaapekto sa reimbursement ko sa 3rd pregnancy ko if maling date ang malagay ko? sa month lang kasi ako sure eh. 8 yrs ago ako noong unang mag buntis at mkunan.

  93. Thanks for the response Ms.Nora. nakapagfile naman na po ako ng mat1, nastamp na ng sss.
    May tanong pa po ako. Employed po ako kung may-june 2016 kaya lang I committed AWOL po. Naghulog ako sa sss kung Jan.10 2017 ng 110, considered voluntary member na po ba ako? Anong requirements po kaya kailangan bukod sa mat2 form,birth certificate at valid ids? March po kasi ako manganganak eh. May papeles pa bang kukunin sa previous employer ko o wala na?

  94. Hi merille, yes, kung merong kang at least 3 contributions within Oct 2015 to Sep 2016, eligible ka sa SSS maternity benefit. Malamang tama naman yong computation na nakita mo online. Nag-file ka na ba ng notification sa SSS? If not yet, mag-file ka na ASAP. Bring your ultrasound report and ID.

  95. Hi Ms. Nora, Ask ko lang po ung opinion niyo kung may makukuha po ba akong maternity benefit sa sss.? Sa ultrasound ko po March 10 2017 ang due date ko. Huling hulog po June 2016. Ung may at April wala pong hulog pero mula march 2016 backwards nakamaximum na hulog ko.
    Sa online sss po chineck ko ung eligibility. Mas lumabas naman pong amount at computation. Ibig sabihin ba nun may makukuha po ako? May disclaimer kasi dun eh Hindi ko po alam kung pano ung Mano Mano na pagtingin kung eligible ako.

  96. hi mam. ask ko lng kung pwd po b aq mg file s sss na miscarrage po aq last aug 2016 .ang last na hulog ko pa sa sss ay sept 2015 gusto ko po mg file ngaun kc kompleto nmn po aq requirements .thx

  97. hi mam miscarage po ako last aug. 2016 gusto ko po sana mg file sa sss kaso ang last n hulog ko po ay sept 2015 pa po. gusto ko po sana ifile ngaun kc my mga requirements nmn po aq. thx po.

  98. Hi Chris, employed ka kasi kaya dapat napirmahan ng employer yong SSS notification mo. Just hope na lang na aprubahan ng SSS ang claim mo kahit hindi mo na-file yong notification mo before your D&C. Most likely ma-approve kung meron kang certified histopathology report at complete documents. Ang leave for miscarriage is usually 60 days. If the ob-gyne makes a medical certificate, dapat 60 days, not less, ang recommended no. of days leave. File your claim through your employer kasi employed ka at ang payment ay through the company’s bank account kung nakapagg-file na sila ng Sickness and Maternity Benefit Payment thru Banks. Ask your HR.

  99. Hi ms. Nora. Nung nalaman ko po na pregnant ako nagpa ultrasound ako agad kaso wala pong heartbeat baby ko. Nagtry akong mag submit ng Mat1 sa sss legarda branch kaso advice sa akin sa company ko daw ipapasa kaso kinabukasan schedule na ako for my dnc, so ngayon mat2 na po isusubmit ko, ok lang po ba na di ko nasubmit yong ultrasound ko before ako ma dnc? Need ba talaga sa company ko isubmit di ba pwedeng direct na ako sa sss? Dapat talaga 60 days? Ilang days po yong processing? Pls enlighten my mind im so confused. Thank you po.

  100. Hi Eduardo, mache-check ko kung eligible siya if I know the dates. Kelan yong mga posted contributions niya? Kelan ang delivery date niya?

    ask ko po if pde po yun maifile sa sss o hindi po . sana po mabasa ninyo

  104. Hello ma’am, ask ko lang po kung possible pa po ma-approve yung na file ko na mat.2? Complete miscarriage po, hindi po niraspa hindi na daw po need sabi ng ob ko nadala nalang sa gamot. So walang D&C ako na maipapasa. Pero naipasa ko na lahat possible requirements pati yung medical cert. At summary of findings sa akin kung bakit hindi na ako niraspa. After a week pinadala na nila sa agency ko yung computation kung magkano possible ko makuha na benefits. Akala ko ok na waiting for cheque nalang. After 2 weeks binalik po lahat ng requirements ko need pa daw po ako mainterview ng sss personally. Sa case ko po possible po ba ma-approve yung benefits ko? Salamat po.

  105. miss nora,
    hello po.. what if na approved yung maternity leave ko sa sss tapos nag resign ako sa work ko wala pang dalawang buwan naka hanap ako nang trabaho, pwde lang po ba?


  107. Hindi maam..actually sa company po nmin nag advice ng resume ng work ko is january 23, pero i think hindi p ok ung sugat ko.. ung sinubmit ko maam sa sss wala pong information kung ilang days po ung leave ko. Pero sabi ng employer ko 2months parin daw babayaran ng sss kaht 1month lng naconsume ko..

  108. Hi Nadine, ang ob-gyne mo ba ang nag-advice na back to work ka on Jan 23? Andon ba sa mga medical papers na na-submit mo na back to work ka Jan 23? Sad to say, based sa mga comments dito, kapag merong information ang SSS sa actual number of days na nag-leave ka, yon ang number of days na babayaran nila. Na-submit mo na, so wait mo na lang kung ilang days ang babayaran nila. Around one month ang time frame nila for processing, pero puedeng tumagal kung kelangan ng verification with the hospital.

  109. How long din po bago makuha ung benefits miss nora.. I already send all my documents sa employer ko and sila na magpapasa s SSS.. pero nung dec.24 pq naoperahan for etopic pregnancy.

  110. Nadine

    January 15, 2017 at 1:52 pm

    Hi maam ask ko lng etopic pregnancy kasi and naoperahan aq in my right tube.. then ung leave ko lng is 1month naoperahan aq ng dec24 then back to work aq ng jan 23 so pano po un kasi according to sss pag cs or misscarriage is 78 days dapat un ung leave mo n babayaran ng sss.. what if 1month lng po ung leave babayarab parin b ng sss ung whole n dapat leave mo or ung 1month lng..

  111. Hi Rachelle, sorry pero totoo na ganon ang policy ng SSS. First four pregnancies lang ang covered (counted pareho ang miscarriages and successful births) kahit hindi nakapag-claim para sa ibang pregnancies. Sa SSS Law: The maternity benefit shall be paid only for the first four (4) deliveries or miscarriages.

  112. Hi! Ask qo lng po, n d&c po aqo last Dec 16, 2016. Bale Ang 5th pregnancy qo po pero ung first 2 child qo di nman po aqo nkapag claim s SSS kc wla p po aqo work before, pero s pang 3rd qo nkapag claim aqo. S pang 4th qo d&c din PO aqo at nkapag claim din PO aqo. Pero ngaun po di n dw pwede mag claim regardless kahit di qo nman ngamit s first 2 child qo ung benefit. Pa help po. Tnx.

  113. Hi maam ask ko lng etopic pregnancy kasi and naoperahan aq in my right tube.. then ung leave ko lng is 1month naoperahan aq ng dec24 then back to work aq ng jan 23 so pano po un kasi according to sss pag cs or misscarriage is 78 days dapat un ung leave mo n babayaran ng sss.. what if 1month lng po ung leave babayarab parin b ng sss ung whole n dapat leave mo or ung 1month lng..

  114. Hi jenelyn, sorry pero hindi ko alam kung paano ka maka-produce ng pregnancy report or ultrasound before miscarriage, kasi lumipas na. What I know is ina-approve nila ang claim kahit walang pregnancy report before miscarriage basta naraspa sa hospital at merong histopathology report. Did you have raspa and have complete papers? Kung nakumpleto ang miscarriage sa house at wala nang nakita ang ob-gyne, ito palagay ko yong hindi ina-approve ng SSS. Pero kapag naraspa ka at merong histo report, try filing your claim in another SSS branch para ma-review ng ibang SSS officer ang papers mo.

  115. hi miss Nora… nkunan po ako pero hndi ko alam na buntis pla ako kya wla akong pregnancy test before na galing sa OB.. pro meron akong P.T na ako lng ang gumawa… ng file ako sa SSS pero hinahanapan pa rin ako ng P.T before miscarriage.. hnd nila ako inaprove… ano po bang dapt kong gawin… kompleto na ako sa lahat pro yung pregnacy test before yun na lng wla ako… thanks po mrs Nora

  116. Hi Ms. Nora,
    Yong case q po. Miscarriage po ..di po aq naraspa kasi according to the result ng scan q makukuha pa sa gamot. Inadvice po aq ng Doctor na mag leave atleast 5 days pero di q po nagamit yon. May maclaim pa ba aq sa SSS?

  117. Hi Ms. Nora,
    Nakunan po ako 8 weeks yung tiyan ko. Gusto ko po sanang mgfile BG SSS Maternity leave kaso lang po wala along before and after ultrasound report na maisumite. Tanong ko lang po if may ibang paraan pa po para makapag claim ako ng benefit? Please help me po. Thanks and God bless po.

  118. Hi Nhq, according to SSS policy, kung 3 weeks lang naka-leave, 3 weeks lang ang babayaran ng SSS. Pero depende rin kung malalaman ng SSS, or kung ano ang isusulat ng employer mo na total number of leave days mo sa maternity reimbursement form mo (sa “COMPUTATION” portion ng form).

  119. Sa 60 days parin po ba computed ang reimbursement ng miscarriage even if 2 to 3 weeks lang nakaleave? Thanka

  120. Ask ko lang po kase nag file ako ng Sickness Benefits Reimbursement kase na miscarriage ako, qualified po ba ako kase unang hulog ko po sa sss January 2016 lang nung nag start po ako dito sa company namen and naghuhulog parin naman po ako until now.

  121. Hi Sophie, yon sa case ng friend mo, mas mabilis kasi she gave birth. Puede ring in-advance ng employer yong benefit. Mas matagal talagang ma-process ang miscarriage kasi they need to see proofs that you were really pregnant. Ang SOP is i-advance ng employer yong benefit sa employee, tapos sila na ang mag-antay ng reimbursement from SSS. Merong mga companies na nag-a-advance, merong mga hindi. Usually kung miscarriage, some companies, they don’t advance the benefit, kasi inaantay muna nila na ma-approve ng SSS ang claim. Mag-enroll ka sa SSS online, so you can check the status of your maternity claim. Then if you see “No maternity benefit claim filed,” ipakita mo sa HR nio.

  122. Hi Ms Nora,

    Good evening po! Sorry po, need ko po talaga help nyo. Magtatanong lang po ako, kasi nasubmit ko na po kumpletong requirements for mat reimbursement ko for miscarriage? That was on nov. 8. Tapos po, nung nov 11 nag msg sakin ang employer ko nasubmit na daw nila sa accounting namin for computation at need ko lang daw po magwait 2-3weeks para sa check. Yun po yung sinabi nila sakin. Sabi ng kaibigan kung nanganak rin, sa kanya daw 4days lang nakuha na nya sa finance yung check nya. Pero okay lang po sakin 2weeks pa importante pinaprocess nila. Pero today po nag email ang ss sakin? Kasi nag email po ako sa knila nagtanong if nasubmit na ba ng employer ko yung documents ko at nanotify na sila sa mat request, sagot po ng ss, wala daw nasumiting mat request o mga documents sa kanila.

    Paano po ba yung process na ginagawa ng kompanya? Pwedi lang ba nilang mareimburse sakin yung cheke kahit wla pa silang mat request sa ss? O hindi lang po nila ako iniinform ng tama? Sabi po nila maghihintay nlg ako ng check tapos ngayun nag email ang ss sakin wala akong mat request. Pano po ba ang process? Pakitulongan naman po ako Ms. Nora. Thank you po ng marami!

  123. hello nora ask ko sana if marereimburse padin poba ako if hindi ko gamitin ung 60 days leave after miscarriage plan kopi kasi bumalik na after 30 days ako pi kasi ung training plamg sa work 3 days plang poko sa bago kopo n work ng ma miscarriage po ako

  124. Hi yohan, ikaw na lang ang mag-final decision, kasi you will sign the form “I certify… are true and correct.” I help you lang in making the decision. Nagpa-D&C ka ba? May record ka ba sa clinic o hospital about your pregnancy/miscarriage? Nagpa-consult and nagpa-ultrasound ka ba? Nag-leave ka ba sa work at merong record na it was for miscarriage? Kung halimbawa kukuha ka later on ng OB history ay yang current pregnancy mo lang ang ilalagay niya?

  125. Hi again ms. Nora. Pregnant kc ulit aq now at mgfafile ng mat1. Last yr ngkaroon aq ng miscarriage pero dq xa naifile. Ok lng bng ndi ko n iindicate ung miscarraige ko s forms? TIA.

  126. Hi John, criminally liable yong private school na yan, kasi nangolekta sila for seven years ng pera na hindi nila niremit. Dapat i-settle ng employer ang liability niya with SSS, maki-deal sila sa SSS, willing to settle naman ang SSS. Mas ok sa kanila ang settlement kesa litigation. In the case of your sister in law, if she paid at least 3 contributions within the 12-month period prior to her semester of contingency (miscarriage), then she should compute her maternity benefit and ask her employer to pay the benefit. She and the other employees should also demand the employer to settle with SSS so that their 7-year contributions can be posted with SSS correctly.
    By the way, ano yong payment na 5000 monthly? For how many months? Did the school intend to just return the contributions in installments?

  127. Mrs Nora, My sister inlaw got miscarriage yesterday po and she underwent d&c she works before sa isang private school for almost 7 years mahigit dito sa pangasinan and kinakaltasan sila ng monthly salary nila para sa sss at philhealth to find out na ung school pala di nila binabayaran ung mga sss at philhealth ng emplyedo nila ano po ba ang magandang gawin namin…. And ang sabi po ng employer din na babayaran na lang daw sila ng monthly ng 5000 each pero sayang naman po ung benefits kasi pag naka member ka ng sss tas binabawasan ka pa ng monthly…. Sana o matulungan nyo kami

  128. Hi yohan, puedeng ma-approve, puede ring hindi. Depende sa ibang documents na ma-submit mo. Usually kung merong histopathology report, D&C report, OB history, at medical certificate at ultrasound reports, malaki ang chance na ma-approve kahit walang notification.

  129. Hi Ms. Nora..ask ko lng if ok lng bng ndi ko na ifile sa Mat1 na ngkaroon ako ng miscarriage last yr? kc db my portion dun kung sn tntnong kung nkailang deliveries/miscarriage kn. Im planning to file my Mat1 na kc eh. Thanks in advance!

  130. thank you Ms nora! 🙂

  131. Hi mich, yes, pareho lang ang benefit computation formula for unemployed at employed. I-check mo lang ang mga medical documents mo na kung merong data doon for recommended no. of leave days ay 60 days leave ang nakasulat. Yong iba namang claim forms or docs, walang field for recommended no. of leave days, so okay lang.

  132. Hi mich, puede kang mag-file as Separated, kasi 3 days ka palang sa new work mo, and additionally as trainee pa. Since the gap between your D&C date and resignation date, you need to get a Certificate of Separation and Cert of Non-Advancement of SSS Maternity Benefit from your former employer and L501 form. Pero tanungin mo yong new employer mo kung na-report ka na nila sa SSS para magtugma yong member status mo sa claim mo at sa SSS records. If you have an SSS online account, i-check mo kung ano na ang member status mo.

  133. and parehas lang po ba ang amount ng marerrimburse if unemployed pero may last employer last july 2016. nagresign po kc ako

  134. good pm po! narasapa po kasi ako wtong nov 9 2016, then kakaresign ko last july 6 16 sa previous employer, may bago po ako employer peo 3 days plang po napasok ko kasi pina bed rest po ako since october 30 16, panu po kaya gagawin ko para maka reimburse. for requirements punta po ba ako dati ko employer or pwede po etong bago kopo na employer or company ang magprocess kahit na tainee plang ako at hindi pako nagstart mag sahod saknila kasi bago plang ako 3 days plang napasok ko since ng bed rest hanggang naraspa. salamat po

  135. Hi deberly, I wish saka ka na lang nag-resign. If we go by SSS law, Oct 15 to Nov 7 lang ang leave mo. Puede pa bang i-postpone yong resignation mo? Pero dahil andiyan na, kausapin mo yong hr/accounting kung anong dates of maternity leave ang isusulat nila sa claim form mo at kung anong magandang gawin para makuha mo yong 60 leave-days mo from SSS. Okay ba sa kanila na huwag nang bayaran yong SSS, Pag-ibig o Philhealth mo this month, at parang on-consultation basis ka na lang (at parang backpay na lang yong sahod mo), para hindi ma-trace na pumasok ka while you should be on leave. I’m not sure what to suggest. Remember, SSS is paying your leave, so you should be really on leave. Ask others too

  136. Hi!
    Nagundergo d&c po ako ng oct29.
    Nakaleave na po ako from oct15 kc pabalik balik akong clinic dhl sa pagspotting ko. Nagdugo ako ng 28 at nung inultrasound wala na dw heartbeat c baby ko. I was two months pregnant nun. Nagfile na ko sa hr namin. Napirmahan na rin nila yung form ko for maternity pero hinihintay ko pa result ng labtest ng inalis sakn. Leave lang sana kaso nagdecide ako magresign para magrest muna talaga, nagtuturn over ako ng work ko ngayon sa bago. Nov8to15 pa ko may work bago tuluyan ma eoc. Nabasa ko yung 60days leave. Pano po yun kasi pumasok pa ko para lang maendorse ko sa bago work ko. Makukuha ko pa rn po ba benefit ko sa 60days leave kht pumasok ako ulit bago magresign?

  137. Hi Diana, have you registered with SSS online? If yes, file your notification online. If not, this is how to enroll in the SSS online system. About filing: Yes. You have 10 years to file your claim, but of course file as soon as you can. Remember to request for a D&C report, histopathology report, ob history. Ultrasound report prior to D&C is also required (proof of pregnancy). Docs should be in English, or with translation if in foreign language. God bless too. By the way, you should have paid at least 3 SSS contributions within July 2015 to June 2016. You can also claim from Philhealth if your receipt covers Nov 10.

  138. Hi Nora, ask ko lang po kc andito ako sa Abu Dhabi now,i have miscarriage po,10weeks na sana c baby but no heart beat,i have to do suction and evacuation this coming Nov.10 po…tapos d ko pa alam kung kelan kami makauwi sa pinas,pwede pa po ba ako magfile ng miscarriage sa SSS pag makauwi na kami sa pinas?
    Thanks po sa reply in advance

  139. Hi Cherry Ann, dahil government employee ka, sa GSIS pumupunta ang mga kaltas sa iyo. Walang maternity benefit from GSIS kasi ang employer mo ang magbibigay sa iyo ng maternity leave with pay, usually 60 days, or less depende sa length of employment mo or other rules. Magtanong ka sa HR ninyo kung anong rules ng department or GOCC ninyo to avail of your maternity benefit.

  140. hi po. ask ko lang po, government employee po ako since last year. di ko po alam kung nahuhulugan ba ng employer ko ang sss ko kase may kaltas nman.
    nagSpotting po ako from the night of Oct. 5-7, then had my ultrasound Oct. 11, and found out that I’m 8weeks and 2days pregnant… qualified po ba ako for the benifits??? thanks po:-)

  141. Hi Vanessa, based sa comments ng ibang na_D&C na nag-comment dito, yes, puede nang wala yong after-ultrasound, basta meron kang histopathology report, D&C report and OB history report.

  142. Hi Sophie, thanks for sharing your updates. Hope you get your claim soon

  143. Hi Nora. Onga, tinanong ko rin kasi sila nung first day palang ng pgkuha ko ng mga requiremnts sinabihan ako nang hr na yun lang (wlang histopath o d&c report) kaya d nako nag abala. Pinahintay lang pla ako sa wala buti nalang chineck ko nakatambak lg pla yung pinasa ko dun, ni hindi malang nila ipinaalam sakin. Hays. Pero lahat ng req meron ako, histopath nalang kulang hndi pa maprovide ng hospital eh. Anyways, thank u! 🙂 hopefully next wk msimulan na nilanh iprocess.

  144. Hi po ok lang po ba na before ng lng yung ultrasound ko wala na after the raspa?

  145. Hi Michelle, depende yan sa SSS physician who will evaluate your documents. If you have ultrasound reports before and after, histopathology report, D&C report, and OB history, the chance of getting approval is better.

  146. Hi po, tanong ko lang po. Paano po kapag nagfail ako i notify si sss na i got pregnant kaso po naraspa ako. May makkeclaim po ba ako kay sss o wala po tlga?

  147. Hi Zandra Marie, mag-a-approve lang ang SSS kapag complete documents na. Kapag naraspa, kelangan ang histopathology report, D&C report and OB history, so dapat request these documents sa OB or hospital before raspa para magawa nila. will be back

  148. Hi Sophie, sad na hindi ka nasabihan ng complete list of requirements. Dito sa post above, nakalista yong required na documents kung nag-D&C. I-aadvance kasi ng employer mo ang benefit mo kaya gusto nilang masigurado na maa-approve ng SSS ang claim mo, so they like to see your histopathology report and D&C report first. Kelangan pa nga ng OB history, plus maternity claim form, notification form, ultrasound report before and after (kung walang ultrasound report after, kinoconsider na nila) and your SSS ID.

  149. Hi ms. Nora 🙁 i’ve waited for 9days na since nakapagsubmit ako ng hiningi nilang requirements sa office. Kaya pinuntahan ko nalang wla kasing update kahit isa from the hr. Tapos pagpunta ko dun kolang nalamn na needed daw ag histopath record at tsaka ag operation report. Hndi nila ako ininform ng tama nung nagtatankng palang ako ng mga need nila 4-5days lg kasi mabibigay na agad ag cheque. Ngayun napatagal na kun hndi ko pa binisita hindi ko malalaman. Hays. Pano po ba if hndi pa available ag histopath record ms nora? Sabi ng hospital hndi pa nila mabibigay. Pano po yun? Pde pa rin ba ng employer ko ireimburse yung benefit o hihintayin talaga nila ag histopath? Thanks po.

  150. Zandra Marie Onayan

    Hello Miss Nora. Nakapag submit po ako sa Hr anamen nung oct 17 ng MAT1 ko with ultrasound. panu ko po ba malalaman if aprub na ng sss yun?
    may alam pa po ba kau nag oofer ng murang raspa kht hindi muntinlupa area?

  151. Hi sandra, sorry hindi ako sure, pero siempre dapat ang pinaka-cheap siguro yong sa Osmun, kaya lang hindi ako sure kung mahirap pa rin ang admission doon, unless meron ka ng doctor doon. Kung meron kang voter’s ID, dalhin mo. Subukan mo rin yong sa Alabang Medical Clinic sa Montillano St.– ito ang alam kong cheapest private hospital sa Muntinlupa. Tanungin mo kung magkano ang cashout kapag gagamit ka ng Philhealth.
    About your SSS maternity benefit claim, kung naka-file ka ng notification sa SSS showing an ultrasound report as proof of your pregnancy, there’s a bigger chance that your claim would be approved. But if you were not able to notify, hindi ko na sure, kasi anembryonic pregnancy. Depende na siguro kung ilang weeks bago nakita na anembryonic. Kung hindi ka pa nag-file, file your notification before ka magparaspa. I hope you have your ultrasound report proving you’re pregnant. See the required documents in the post above. Take care.

  152. Hello.Baka po may recommended kaung mura d&c within muntinlupa Area. And also makakapag avail po ba ako ng ML at ilangs days po. Pregnant po ako pero anembryonic pregnancy or.llblighted ovum. thanks.

  153. Hi Sophie, thank you very much for commenting again. And thanks for planning to update us here about your benefit. God bless too!

  154. Hi Nora! Thanks for emailing me. 🙂 I’m still waiting sa update ng company ko nasubmit ko na kasi hinihingi nilang requirements. But pumunta ako sa sss nung friday ata at nagtanong ako abt how much yung benefit kahit miscarriage. Sabi nila same lang sa normal delivery yung makukuha pero since miscarriage ibi-base kun kelan ka nakunan o nag pa d&c kumbaga yun yung magiging delivery date namin. Still hoping na masubmit na ng company yung requirements ko kasi sinabihan nila ako na na sa sss na pero sabi ng sss hindi pa daw nakapagfile company ko. Hays i’ll update you incase meron pa kong additional info na makuha sa kanila. Thanks for helping us here! :* God bless.

  155. Hi Jam, kung complete ang documents mo, as listed above in the post, malaki ang chance na ma-approve ang claim mo. I hope that in your medical certificate, your OB explained why you did not need to undergo raspa. About leave, requirement din kasi ng SSS na dapat naka-leave ang member, kasi maternity leave yong binabayaran nila.

  156. Hi po ask ko lng if what are the chances to get approval from sss for miscarriage? I was diagnosed as pregnant for 2 months, nakunan po ako after noon. I took some meds na prescribe ng ob para bumukas ang cervix ko kasi di nila ako nag undergo ng raspa because of it. Now lastly nag pa check up ulit ako after taking meds and the findings was complete abortion and my oby said that i dont have to undergo surgery or raspa. So i submitted all my req for mat2 and waiting for an approval till tomorrow. Do u think po ba maging eligible padin ako even without d&c? Kasi my company wants me to file for a 60 day leave. Thanks in advance

  157. Hi Sophie, nakasulat sa SSS law na 60 days ang benefit for miscarriage. Pero dapat na if employed nakapag-leave talaga ang member for at least 60 days (hindi nag-work), at saka if ever required ang medical cert from OB, dapat 60 days or more ang isusulat niya na recommended number of leave days, not less.
    Sa SSS reimbursement form, isusulat doon ang date of miscarriage at saka dates of start and end of leave. Isusulat din ng HR or accountant yong benefit amount. Ask your HR yong mga dates of start and end, kasi hindi ako masyadong sure kung ilang days or weeks ang puede na leave before miscarriage/delivery. Call your HR. For example, Oct 21 ang D&C mo, ask them kung up to when is your start of leave na isusulat sa form (Oct 7 or 8 ba? or puede earlier pa?), para alam mo rin kung hanggang kelan ang leave mo. Thanks a lot for appreciating my blog. And if you have time, puedeng i-share mo rin dito kung anong sinabi ng HR nio kung ilang days or weeks ang puede i-leave prior to miscarriage/delivery?

  158. Hi po. Thank you sa mabilis na respond. Sobrang laking tulong po ng blog nyo. 🙂 Actually po since sept 1st ay nakaleave nako dahil nga sa threatened abortion na diagnosis sakin hanggang nag pa d&c po ako ay nakaleave ako. Until now. So sunod-sunod parin pong mag totwo months na. So pd na pong pang 60-day leave ano? 🙂 yung Hr po namin hndi naman nagtatanong ng ilang araw yung ibibigay nila na matleave. May possibility po banh hndi nila ibibigay yung 60day na benefit dahil miscarriage lang po ito? O dapat talagang i-cover nila?

  159. Hi Jane, welcome. And thanks din for visiting our blog. Pero inform mo pa rin and talk with your HR about your 60-day leave

  160. Hi Sophie, ang 60 days leave ay dapat ma-avail ng sunud-sunod na araw, walang gap, at dapat just before or just after and during D&C. Yes, dapat sa 60 days na babayaran ng SSS ay dapat naka-leave ka. Pero, what I know is kung nag-leave ka ng 2 weeks before your D&C, puede nang ibilang yon sa 60 days, so na-avail mo na yong around 14 days, so 46 days na lang. Talk with your HR para clear sa kanila.

  161. Hi po. Magtatanong lang po ako if sa 60 days leave na yan ay dpat po talaga akong magleave sa work? Or pde pong iapply nalang yung mga leave sa na una ko nang leave 1 month ago na inadvice ako ni OB to have bedrest bcos of threatened abortion case. Then ths october lang eh nawalan talaga ng heartbeat baby ko. 🙁 Kakalabas ko lang po sa ospital for my d&c noong oct 22. Is it possible po ba na yung last month leave ko iapply na lang sa 60days benefit leave? 🙂 thank u po in advance. Sana masagot nyo tanong ko. GOD BLESS PO. 🙂

  162. Thank you so much sa pagsagot ng tanong ko. 🙂 Been so confused lately if same equation lg ba yung miscarriage at normal delivery. Thanks! God bless. Yung company ko yung nagpaprocess sguro alam na nila yun na 60days benefit ko dba po? 🙂 Thank you.

  163. Hi Paulina, sorry, kung wala kang at least 3 contributions within July 2015 to June 2016, hindi ka qualified for maternity benefit. Ask others too

  164. hi po..tanong ko lang kung mkakaavail ba ko ng maternity benefit. voluntary ako ng month of july august september2016 and na miscarriage ako ngayong month of october mkakaavail po ba ko ng benefits wla po akong hulog ng year 2015 kc ung employer ko nun dti walang kaltas ng sss

  165. Hi Joy, yes, you can file even after many months (up to 10 years), but of course file as soon as you have completed your documents.

  166. Hi Jane, ang miscarriage ay pareho sa normal delivery na 60 days din ang number of paid leaves. Dapat yong OB ay 60 or more days ang isulat in the med cert or if asked in the form).

  167. Hi. May idea ka ba how to compute the matbenefit if miscarriage yung case? Same lg ba sa normal pregnancy or may diff equation if miscarriage po? i had a miscarriage 9 5/7 weeks na si baby no heartbeat. Last of sept and nag d&c ako oct 20. Nang icompute ko in normal preg around 31k. But siguro iba if miscarriage ag case. Any idea po? Thanks in advance!

  168. Hello po. Ask lang ako hanggang kelan eligible ang pag file ng maternity benefits for miscarriage? August 16,2016 po ako nakunan. Hindi pa kasi ako tapos sa requirements kasi nag out of town ang doctor ko. Pwd pa po ba kahit over 2 months na since nakunan ako? Thanks po s reply.

  169. Hi Michelle, if your other documents prove that you were pregnant and then miscarried, your claim will most likely be approved. It will help more if you had D&C and had a histopathology report.

  170. Hai nora, kailan po ako pwedi mag file ng miscarriage nakunan po ako noong october 14 2016 bago pa lng po. Hindi pa ako nakafile ng mat 1 kasi 2 mos pregnant pa ako noong nakunan ako.

  171. Ask ko lang po maaaprove po ba ung mat2 ko ndi ko n Kc pasa ung mat1 ko Kc nakunan mko bestest Kc ako for 3 weeks npsa ko n supporting documents lo pra sa mat2

  172. Hi maria corazon, mag-enroll ka sa SSS online service. Pag enrolled ka na, login and click Eligibility then sickness/maternity

  173. maria corazon barbosa

    Hello ask ko lang po kung saan pwdy malaman o nakita kung AU’s na po ba ung cheque ko sa maternity bnfts.noong sep.21.2016 po ako nagpasa ng mat2.,thanks po godblss..

  174. Hi Janel, sorry hindi pa. Your semester of contingency is Apr to Sep. SSS will look for at least 3 contributions within April 2015 to March 2016

  175. Hi. I am a new member of Sss. The 1st month of my contribution is feb.2016. I didnt know im pregnant i had miscarriage this sep.22,2016. Am i eligible for sss benefits??pls. Reply..

  176. Hi joan, try mo lang ito. Humingi ka sa OB mo ng medical certificate na merong explanation kung bakit hindi na-perform ang raspa sa iyo. Then mag-file ka ng claim sa another SSS branch. Include a filled-up MAT1 form with a letter attached explaining something like “I was about to file my notification when unexpectedly I miscarried.” Pray too.

  177. I wasnt able to secure ultra sound before miscarriage but I do have medical certificate from my ob na nabuntis po ako…

  178. help po….nag complete miscarriage po ako during my 2nd month nd I wasnt able to submit maternity notification…completo nman yung docs ko..kaso ayaw tanggapin dahil d raw ako nag under go ng raspa….

  179. Hi Mhi, yes, since April pa dapat yan, pero this month nila talagang inimplement. So open an atm account at any of these banks: Bank Partners of SSS for sickness and maternity benefits. Submit to SSS a copy of your initial or recent deposit slip (bring original) plus a photocopy of your atm card (front and back)

  180. Hi ms nora pls help me know kung totoo bang ndi na nag iissue ng cheke ang sss ngaun for mat benefits. Pinag oopen kc aq ng bank account required nadaw un ngaun kc dun n ippasok ung maqqha q.last year lng cheke nmn natnggap ng ateq kea medyo nagtataka aq.

  181. Hi Ara, yes, i-collect mo lang yong mga documents na nasa list above (yong complete miscarriage). Yong medical certificate ng OB mo ay dapat merong explanation kung bakit hindi na na-perform ang D&C at histopathology.

  182. Hi Ayca, pa-certified true copy mo sa hospital kung saan ka na-D&C. About MAT2 only: Siguro na-realize na rin ng SSS na usually naman hindi expected ang miscarriage, so malimit hindi pa nasa-submit yong MAT1 ay nagkakaroon na ng miscarriage. Meron din kasing policy na kapag DOH-licensed hospital ang delivery, hindi na required ang MAT1, so siguro yon na rin ang sinusunod sa miscarriage, basta ang D&C ay performed in a DHO-licensed hospita.

  183. Hi Ms. nora, na induced abortion ako due to complications. Wala na yung baby kaya hindi na sya ma histopath. And the same time na nag pacheck ako sa doktor os after kong mahulogan. Nagpa serum test sya sakim which is positive tapos sa ultrasound wala nang baby pero may remnants na naiwan. We are going through meds kaya hindi sya mag raraspa muna. Pwede pa ba akong mag claim?

  184. Hi Ms. nora ask ko lang po pano ba magpacertified true copy ng pathology report kase pag tiningnan ung saken printed lang dn ung signature ng pathologist baka sabihin ng sss fake.Tsaka bakit po mat2 lang ung pinafile ng sss saken for my miscarriage di na po ba need ung mat1?

  185. Hi Spot, if the gap between your separation date and delivery date is less than 6 months, hingi ka from your former employer ng: cert of separation and non-advancement of benefit at yong L501 form nila. Yes, puedeng-puede mag-process kahit August ka pa nag-miscarriage.

  186. Hi Ms.Nora Thanks for your response before. i just got my histopathology report yesterday inantay ko pa kase pwede pa kaya ako mag process ng sss maternity benefit August 21 pa po ako nakunan tsaka ano po ung mga need na hingin sa HR ng dati kung company? Pwd po pakiresend ng email nyo po saken ulit?Hnd ko na maopen ung dating email ko.Thank you po

  187. Hi Isay, nire-require ng SSS ang mga documents See the list of requirements above para sa naraspa. Pag naraspa, important sa kanila ang histopathology report, based sa mga comments dito. Ang alam kong kino-consider nila ay yong isa lang ang kulang — yong walang ultrasound-before. Meron ding na-consider na walang ultrasound-after pero merong ultrasound-before. Ito tingnan mo dito ang mga cases, at tingnan mo kung anong puede mong makuha pa na document: Miscarriage Claim Denied. Miscarriage Claim Approved

  188. Hi Ms. Nora! Na-miscarriage po ako and i didn’t know the preggy po ako so wala po akong mga documents for check up or any ultrasound before and after. And hndi na po ni-require sa hospi ng ultrasound after ko ma-raspa . Paano po ba yun?

  189. Hi Ms. Nora, thank you so much sa reply. Tinanggap na rin ng SSS ang docs ko 🙂 Maybe gusto makita ng officer ang word na ‘hispathology’ kaya nag-request ako sa doctor ko na irevise ang medcert ko.

  190. Hi Angel, bale ang walang document is ultrasound report before miscarriage. Puedeng ma-question ito, puede ring maconsider. You can try filing. Depende na sa SSS evaluator. Hingi ka pa sa OB mo ng OB history at med cert kung bakit hindi ka kinailangan na ma-D&C ka.

  191. Hi Girlie, you’re right, histopathology is not needed kasi nga wala namang natanggal na tissue from you. At saka nakalagay sa SSS Citizen’s Charter na those are the only requirements needed, plus mat benefit claim form, mat notification form and IDs. What you can do is to file your claim at a different SSS branch, and then pray that your docs will be handled by officers who really know the SSS policies. I hope you can comment again if they finally accepted your docs.

  192. Hi Ms. Nora. Naguguluhan po ako sa SSS, specifically their main branch, paiba-iba sila ng hinahanap na requirements. I had spontaneous miscarriage last August 18, 2016. I have completed the requirements needed (stated sa form for complete abortion)-Obstetrical history, Ultrasound before and after miscarriage, Certification from my OB wherein it was stated why D&C is not required. And yet, hindi pa rin nila tinanggap application ko. Hinahanapan naman ako ngayon ng Histopath-which is impossible kasi wala ng specimen na nakuha skin kaya nga yun ang nakalagay sa medcert ko.Paki-clarify po, ang gulo kasi nila.

  193. Hi miss Nora. I badly need help. I had a miscarriage last feb this year 2016 and na approve sya ng sss for reimbursement that time I undergone d&c kasi 2 months na nung nwala baby ko. This August I had another miscarriage di ako nakapag ultrasound kasi young sched ko sana nung week na yun 6 weeks preggy na ako dun ako nag start mag bleed and nag I.E. Yung OB ko she suspected threatened abortion bec of the blood clots. I do have the ultrasound after na nung miscarriage but I was just given medication no operation since halos kunti nlang po natira sa loob ????. Pwd po ba ako mag claim ulit for sss? 2nd child to be ko pa to. I don’t have medical records except sa check up sa ob and ultrasound after nakunan plus 2 Medcert young threatens Ana confirmed incomplete abortion na po. Hope you can find time to help me out.

  194. Hi Jadeen, usually one month to 6 weeks bago mabigay yong check (or deposited to employer’s bank account). Yes, there are claims that are not approved. Here are examples: Rejected miscarriage claims. You submitted medical records, so most likely yours will be approved. Pray, don’t worry so much.

  195. Hi Ms. Nora, meron din bang mga application for maternity claim na hindi ina-aaccept ni SSS? Na raspa ko last July 18 and able to complete the required docs. (histopath, operative record and discharge summary.. idk that I was pregnant) and passed it already sa HR namin, pero hindi pa nila napapasa kay SSS. They already paid me the half amount. Kelan ko kaya makukuha yung another half? Matagal bang magbayad si SSS kay employer? Bothered lang ako baka hindi ma-approve ni SSS. Thanks in advance

  196. Hi Glaedyn, before I reply, ano ang na-file ng former employer mo? Yon lang notification of pregnancy, yong tinatawag na MAT1 dati?
    Or yong complete claim na mismo? Yong MAT1, MAT2 and OB and D&C documents?

  197. Hi ms Nora, naraspa ako nung aug.9,2016. employed po ako pero wala na ko balak pumasok, nakapag file sila about my pregnancy, then gusto ko po ako na mag file sa sss about my miscarriage, pwede po kaya yun?

  198. Hi JANICE, sad to say, yes. Sabi ng SSS: The maternity benefit shall be paid only for the first four (4) deliveries or miscarriages. Sinabi rin nila sa iba nilang announcements na kahit hindi naka-avail sa first or 2nd or 3rd pregnancies, up to the 4th lang talaga.

  199. Ms. Nora is it true po ba na hanggang 4th pregnancy lang yung pwedeng ma cover ng sss?!
    Kasi pang 5th miscarriage ko na po ito…
    Do i need to try pa po mag file or hindi na?!

  200. Hi Spot, yes, you are qualified for SSS maternity benefit. File your claim ASAP. See the list of documents required above. I emailed you pero nag-bounce, sayang ang haba pa naman yong email ko. Basahin mo na lang lahat yong post ko above for further info, or you can write your correct email address.

  201. hi Nora.I was employed po Sept last year hanggang July 1 lang this year kase nagresign po ako. Nabuntis po ako kaso nakunan din last August 21, 2016 and then naraspa na ko nung August 26. Ask ko lang eligible ba ko for SSS maternity claim kahit 9 months lang ung employment ko.

  202. Hi judy, I’m glad that you’re concerned about your employee, but it’s difficult to prove her pregnancy and miscarriage kapag hindi siya nagpadoktor lalo na at 2 weeks preggy pa lang siya. Siempre hahanapan siya ng SSS ng proof of pregnancy and miscarriage. Required documents are ultrasound report before and after miscarriage plus medical certificate at obstetrical history from her ob-gyne. Puede ring pregnancy certificate by ob kung walang ultrasound before miscarriage. Puede nio siang bigyan ng leave if she needs it pero tell her it would be either unpaid leave or paid sick leave kung wala siyang ma-present na documents. Based sa mga nagco-comment sa sss blog namin, madalas ma-reject ang mga incomplete documents sa miscarriage. Dito magbasa siya ng comments dito: Why sss maternity benefits are rejected or denied and here: Denied SSS Maternity Benefit claims for miscarriage

  203. hi ms. nora, ask ko lang po if pede p mgfile ng maternity leave isa namin employee,
    nakunan po sy august 21,2016 2weeks p lng po sy preggy. ngfile po kmi online ng maternity notif ng aug22. hindi po sy ngpadoktor. pede pa po kaya un?

  204. Hi rhen, ito ang gamitin mo: Affidavit of Undertaking. Sa list sa bandang baba. Download mo lang.

  205. hai mam nora ask q lang po.. what if kung ung employer q ayaw magbgay ng sss L501 at certification of non advancement of maternity benefits …. at COE lang daw po ang maiprorovide nila.. anu po ba maganda kong gawin…

  206. Hi mizpah, thanks for sharing helpful info

  207. Hi Michelle, sorry pero totoo na yong first 4 pregnancies lang ang kinocover ng SSS, kahit hindi mo naman na-claim ang SSS benefit for the first or second, etc.

  208. Michelle Anthonette R. Eusebio

    Hi po I had undergo DnC just this morning as far as my mother can remember puede ako mag claim sa SSS for Miscarriage. For maternity ksi wala na daw ako ma claim ksi pang 5th ko na po eto pero 3 parang naman po na claim ko sa maternity benefit ksi yun 1st kid ko wala pa po ako work. I hope you could help us clarify po. As i need the financial assistance from SSS

  209. Hi victoria, Nagsubmit ako ng ultrasound before at after, med cert from OB, at OB report of pregnancy. Hope this helps.

  210. Hi Joamie, parang hindi puede ang PT kit kasi walang proof na sa yo yong PT kit na yon. Mas mabisa pa yong medical cert from your OB that she examined you and you were pregnant. Mag-try ka lang mag-file with the documents that you have. Merong evaluator na i-advise ka at hindi tanggapin muna — puedeng you go to another SSS branch and file. If your documents are accepted, but the final evaluator denies your submission, look for instructions in the rejected documents, you can re-file again.

  211. Ask ko lang po kasi complete abortion po ako at i never undergone D and C or raspa po coz that’s my OB’s said after my last check up and last ultrasound, and i file my maternity leave at my company, pero i don’t have any laboratory ultrasound before po kasi ako na miscarriage, pero meron po ako Pregnancy Test before nu
    ng pregnant pa po ako and also picture of it with a date, the rest complete na po ung mga requirements ko na need po ng ML, ung Ultrasound before nlng po ang kailangan, Please help po, mkkpag file pa dn po ba ako or ma approved pa dn po kya ang ML ko kpg PT kit or pic of it with a date ang isa submit ko then letter for the explanation? Please need help po talaga… Thank you po

  218. Hi Morena, you can try. Approval depends on the officer who will evaluate your case. See the list of required documents above in the post.

  219. Good morning po pwd po ba ako mag aplay ng miscarriage ang 7weeks Meron po ako ultrasound before ang after !!! Thank you po

  220. Hi, ask ko lang po kung eligible ba ko magfile ng maternity benesit since june 11, 2016 po kasi end of contract na po ko sa work ko. Then i experienced miscarriage last june 28, 2016, and undergone d&c. Sa palagay niyo po? Salamat po sa sagot..

  221. Hi christine, yes, try filing. SSS will evaluate your documents. Include a medical certificate from your OB about your pregnancy and why you did not have to undergo raspa. If you were not able to file notification, include filled-up notification form with attached letter explaining that you were about to file notification when you miscarried.

  222. Hi mary joy, you try filing after your raspa. Wala bang government hospital diyan para punta ka sa charity sana. About your claim, it will depend on the SSS evaluator if your claim is approved. It’s good that you have ultrasound reports before and after. Include filled-up maternity notification with your attached letter explaining that you were about to submit your notification when you miscarried. About eligibility, do you have at least 3 monthly contributions within April 2015 to March 2016?

  223. Hi Ms.Nora, I had miscarriage last week june 27,2016..9 weeks na sya..incomplete..hindi ako nagparaspa..niresetahan na lang ako ni dok ng gamot para sa expulsion ng mga naiwan sa matres ko…kumpleto na ako sa ibang requirements. pwede na kaya nilang tanggapin yun? Thanks

  225. Hi Mary anne, you try filing. Approval will depend on the SSS medical personnel evaluating your case. Submit all the documents that you have: ultrasound before and after, medical cert from OB (with explanation why D&C was not performed), OB history, maternity claim for voluntary (if you’re not employed), maternity notification (attach a letter explaining that you were about to file when you unexpectedly miscarried), and SSS ID. Please double check with the list of docs in the post above.

  227. Hi mizpah, thanks a lot! Appreciate your thumbs-up. Inspires me and encourages me. Hugs to you too! Have another nice day!

  228. Hi Ms. Nora, Thank you for a very informative site. Helped me a lot. Up on your page. Hugs and kisses to all of us, angel mom’s.

  229. Hi Juliefer, are you voluntary? If employed, are you on leave? DO you have ultrasound after and the other docs like histopathology report, medical cert, obstetrical report by your OB, etc? You can try filing. Fill up maternity notification and attach letter explaining that you were about to file it when you unexpectedly miscarried. Your approval will depend on the medical officer who will evaluate your papers.

  230. Hi po Ms. Nora I had miscarriage last June 18 and had raspa (D and C) po but the problem is I don’t have ultrasound before that then I did not file Mat.1. I would like to ask if I can still file for Maternity with SSS?

  231. Hi po I had miscarriage last june 14 and naraspa po ako 1st baby ko po sana 7 weeks 6 dys po npo sn sya..voluntary contribution po ako anong form po ang klngan ko pr s benefit application at ano po ang mga requirements? mkkpag claim po b ako ng benefit khit hnd updated ang contribution ko?

  232. Hi po I had miscarriage last june 14 and naraspa po ako 1st baby ko po sana 7 weeks 6 dys po npo sn sya..voluntary contribution po ako anong form po ang klngan ko pr s benefit application at ano po ang mga requirements

  233. Hi Jesa, are your documents complete except the unstamped MAT1? Yes, you can file. Fill up MAT1 with attached letter that you were about to file your MAT1 when unexpectedly you miscarried. Yes, maternity leave can be granted for just 27 days if that’s the number of days written by your OB in your medical certificate.

  234. Hi po i had a misscarriage last 1st of june 1 and had raspa po. i never filed a mat1 and i have a sick notification but not filed with hr. Can i still file a maternity leave for just 27 days?

  235. Hi Mary ann, if you have complete documents, then you can file asap. I’m just not sure but there might be a question about the length of your pregnancy. Benefit amount depends on the no. of leave days given to you by your OB, and on your 6 highest salary credits within the 12-month period prior to your semester of miscarriage.

  236. Hi po how much can we get from sss for miscarriage? can i file if 1 week and a half pregnant then I miscarried. I have complete documents to file with sss.

  237. Hi michelle, thank you very much for your words. I’m so glad and so encouraged. I’ve already moved what you shared us to the post area above so that more people can read it and be helped. About the punctuation, no problem, I’ve changed it 🙂 Thanks again for patiently writing your list. You’re also blessed because your company is helpful. Many others are not, as there are still companies ignoring employees’ rights to benefits. By the way, may I ask if you were asked by your HR to sign that part of MAT2 saying you have already received your benefit in advance even if actually you have not received it yet, as HR wanted to make sure first that your claim was approved by SSS. I asked because some are asking me if they should sign that part of MAT2 even if their company has not actually advanced the benefit. For some firms, they might be more hesitant in advancing the benefit in miscarriage cases than in child deliveries, as miscarriage needs a lot of documents to prove that it occurred. Thank you again.

  238. Hi Ms Nora, sorry for the incorrect punctuation marks at the end (I was using my cell phone and eldest was beside me..)??

  239. Ms Nora,no prob!You never knew how clueless I was when it happened to me..Your immediate responses in my inquiries and your blog helped me a lot since I tend to search everything online(believe me I had read most of the posts here abt the same case that I had and learned from it that’s why I got my claim approved so quickly) I guess I want to repay you in a way that I knew and could also help your thousand followers!!
    (PS I forgot to include in the list a photo copy of valis id’s..hahaha
    Im a fan!!!!!!!

  240. Hi Erika, you can qualify if you’re correctly registered and you pay April to June asap (deadline is June 30). If you never paid SSS before as employed, you need to register first as self-employed (you need proof of source of income) or non-working spouse (your husband is employed, right?). Get a non-working spouse form from SSS, or download and print. Your husband must sign the form. You should pay ASAP April to June at one time so that your payment will be accepted as a quarterly payment (deadline June 30). Read this if you prefer to register as self-employed.

  241. Hi Mrs.nora, my due date is October 8. I don’t have SSS contributions. Can I pay so I can claim maternity benefits. I don’t have work so I’ll be voluntary.

  242. Hi Ann, sorry I’m not sure. Did you take a leave after miscarriage? because if you did not take leave days last month for miscarriage, then there will be no leave days that SSS will pay. The maternity benefit is basically a payment of leave days taken. SSS also needs documents like ultrasound or pregnancy test result before and after, and medical cert from your OB, with explanation why D&C was not performed. Ask others too. Talk with your HR.

  243. Hi Michelle, wow, thanks a lot for sharing important information. I’m so happy about your effort. This will help others. I will feature your info in a post so more people will be able to read it and be helped. Your info about certified-true-copy and dates of docs are very helpful. Thanks again! By the way, you write very well 🙂

  244. ann cris valiroso

    hi po mrs Nora I didn’t know I was pregnant. But when I had bleeding last month, that was the time I realized I was pregnant. Can I file this for maternity benefit as last year I got maternity benefit for my delivery last year and I just got employed last DEC 2015

  245. Hi ms Nora, I had filed my maternity claim for miscarriage(INC ABORTION WITH D&C PROCEDURE)this May 30,2016,though I wasnt able to talk to the doctor (coz there’s none on duty)I was told to go back on June 1 for approval.I just got my claim and was APPROVED already (yeey!)and luckily my company would reimbursed me right away this coming pay-out.Thanks for your blog that helps me a lot to understand the process of claim better.Your blog answered most of my inquiries since it was my first time to have D&C procedure. Here is the list of the documents I’d submitted,hope this will be of great help.
    -Med cert (Orig copy)
    -Complete Obstetrical History (form avail at SSS/ ur HR dept)
    -Clinical Case summary/medical abstract (Certified true copy)
    -Discharge summary (certified true copy)
    -Surgical Memorandum (certified true copy)
    -Anesthesia Record (I guess this was just a supporting doc but will be given still by the hospital)
    -Histopathogy Report (certified true copy)
    -Mat 1
    -ultrasound result before my miscarriage,certified true copy (I didnt have U/S result after since I have other supporting docs)
    -Our HR dept also provided me with my contributions at sss for the past 6mns (but I guesd this is just a supporting doc also)
    Make sure to have the hispathology report to be certified true copy bec this was a big issue with my one of my colleague’s application,since it was done by another lab the hospital wont certify it and SSS wants it certified.If your hospital is also conducting the same test better do it there if the price is reasonable,I got mine at P1200 but the price range is from 900-2500 depending on the laboratory.And lastly make sure the date of ur procedure would be the same to all ur documents to avoid inconvenience at SSS. I hope this will help because before I was confused with the requirements listed given by SSS as what were given at the Record Section bec they were labeled differently.

    Thanks again and more power!

  246. Katheleen dela Rosa

    Hi po Ms. Nora, yes po ako po ung may problem sa former employer ko po na may unremitted contributions ng whole year 2015. Already check na po sa SSS ung last posted nila & year 2014 lang po ang nakapost, year 2015 is blank po pero nakaltas na po yun sa akin. Ang gagawin po daw ng former employer ko po since hindi pa daw nila mapaid ung whole year 2015 is sila daw po muna magaabono, pero need daw nila Histopath pra daw complete ako s requirements & makareimburse daw po sila. Will tell them po na magpapass na lang po ako ng substitute na medical certificate from my ob & explanation what procedure & why there is no histopath..Sana po pumayag ung SSS branch kung saan cia nglalakad..Thanks po Ms. Nora! God Bless po…

  247. Hi Katheleen, yes, that can be a good substitute. Request your OB to explain what medical procedure was performed on you and why there was no histopathology report. Are you the one with the problem of unremitted contributions by your former employer? Have you checked with SSS if the relevant contributions are already posted? Or can you already see those contributions via your online SSS account? Even if you have the histopathology report if you don’t have the required contributions, your claim will not be approved.

  248. Katheleen dela Rosa

    Hi po Ms. Nora, sorry po for my problem. Is a medical certificate from my OB a good substitute for the Histopath result? It’s really required by SSS commonwealth branch, the Histopath result. I have no specimen for histopath :(. As per doctor daw of SSS, they need the histopath. Thank you po & more power po!

  249. Hi michelle, I hope they’ll no longer require the ultrasound after operation since you already have other medical documents and since they also mentioned pregnancy test as a substitute for ultrasound. The medical certificate from your OB might work. But it really will depend on the officer that will evaluate your documents. Wish you the best

  250. Michelle D. Reyes

    I already completed those requirements for miscarriage filing, but my employer asking me for another valid id. I only submitted company ID, since I lost IDs. Can you give me other option of Ids accepted?

  251. tnx ms nora!Is ultrasound after the surgery still required because other documents already showed that Ihad the surgery done and besides my two ultrasound before confirmed that I had anembroyonic pregnancy thus considered an failed early pregnancy already..
    tnx again and more power!

  252. Hi michelle, wait for your histopathology report. That’s very important, specially if the miscarriage was not complete and if D and C was performed.

  253. hi, ijust had my misccarriage last may 13, i dont have yet the hispathology result since it would take two-three weeks for it to be completed.Can I still pass my docs at sss without it?I have the other documents though except for that one..

  254. Katheleen dela Rosa

    Hi po again Ms. Nora, this is Katheleen po.. nakausap ko po ung Liason officer na naglalakad ng benefit claim ko po for miscarriage na taga former company ko po..according to her po sabi po ng SSS Doctor need ko daw po ng Histopathology result :(.. I already texted my OB po kung may other way na pd gawin na baka makakuha ng result. And naisip ko po din kayo Ms. Nora kung may idea din po kayo or possible po ba na explanation letter na lang po kung bakit walang histopath result, & ito din po ung sinuggest ng SSS Branch dto sa Tanay na if wala histopath magattached daw po ako ng explaination letter kung bkit wala..Pinipilit po kasi ng Liason officer na sabi daw po ng SSS Doctor need daw po ng Histopathology result :(..Kasi daw po pag incomplete ung requirements ko hindi daw po makaka reimburse un company.. Ang nangyari po kasi Ms. Nora aabonohan nila ung benefit ko..Iniisip ko na baka iniipit lang nila ako para di ko na ipush ung benefit claim ko po..Thanks po Ms. Nora..

  255. hi po.

    ask ko po sana since i had miscarriage last nov.1 2012, wala na po aqng record ng PT ko before ans after but i am confident na makakakuha aq ng doca from hospitak records na i undergone d&c. ask ko lng anu anong documents needed pa po ba and needed aside from d&c and histopath record and kailangan para makapag file ng benefit sa sss. i havent availed my mat benefit sa sss fron my 1st pregnancy nung jan 2012 and the miscarriage that same year e. i was hoping to get both benefits po sana. thanks po.

  256. Gud day, ask ko lang po if 4weeks pregnant den na miscarriage pero di po kc nkita sa scan ng ultrasound na pregnant kc nung time na iniscan ako nagbebleed pko kaya no sign of pregnancy sa ultrasound ang lumabas, pero based sa blood test (serum beta hcg) before and after dun po nkita na bumaba ung count ng hcg ko…sign na nagbuntis nga po pero nawala din…cover po b un ng maternity? Hope ill get feedback the soonest..thanks

  257. Hi mae, you lack important documents, but if you don’t have to spend so much to file your claim, you can file and hope they’ll accept and approve your claim. SSS really requires SSS-stamped MAT1, pregnancy test result or ultrasound before and after miscarriage and histopathology report (because you had D and C). You can write a letter explaining why you were not able to file MAT1 before miscarriage and why you’re filing your claim only now. Attach this to a filled-up MAT1. Sorry I’m not sure if they’ll accept/approve your claim, but if the first branch that you go to does not accept your claim, try another branch, maybe a newer branch.

  258. Good day po. l miscarried but I have no ultrasound before because I didn’t know I was pregnant and after because I was not advised by my OB after I had D and C. I only have this documents from the hospital: operation record, clinical abstract, ob history, med cert. and discharge summary. I don’t have histopath. Will SSS accept my claim or is there a chance my claim will be approved? I miscarried 2 years ago and I only came to know recently that I’m eligible to have my benefit. Thanks po in advance for your reply.

  259. salamat po liah…OK po follow up ko nlmg ulit sa Tuesday kasi na sa employer ko pa…ako din po kasi nag lakad nun sss ko kasi na kunan pa po ako nuon pang DEC 19 2015 tapos nag pass po ako sa employer then after 3 months nag follow up ako sa mismo sss tpos nalaman ko d pala na file then ako na ang mag file nuon April 11 ngayon nag follow up ako sabi ng sss binalik my kulang pa po daw…eto nga po at buti andIto pa po ung pt kit ko….sana po now na I process ko ulit at maging OK na…kasi nakakainis na po ung naka asign sa sss SBI nya is OK na lhat bigla po binalik paper ko tpos d man LNG po ako na update ng employer ko…buti nlng po na try ko nag follow up… expiration po ba un??…sana po d masayang pagod ko then ma claim ko ung dapat ko I claim….thank you po sa rrply

  260. You’re welcome Ms.Nora 🙂

    Hi beverlyn, yun sakin kasi voluntary ang sss ko, hindi ko alam pano kapag sa employer, ang advice ko lang sayo punta ka ng sss agad at dun ka mag tanong mismo, gaya ng nangyari sakin sa sss marikina ang dami hinahanap sakin dun, kaya nag hanap ako ng ibang sss branch na malapit samin. Ang sabihin mo isang ultrasound lang ang meron ka kasi hindi mo agad nalaman buntis kana kaya after ultrasound lang ang meron ka, tapos dalhin mo ang ob history mo dapat may pirma yan ang doc.license ng doc. Kasi chineck pa nila tapos medical certificate mo sa doc., dalhin mo na lang din ang PT kit mo kung meron ka,pero yun sakin hindi na tiningnan.kung hindi ka na raspa sabihin mo walang kang D&C report, kung na raspan ka kailangan mo iprovide yun, Mat1 lang din ang hininge sakin, ob history at medical certificate. Yun lang. Sana maka file ka din ng sayo. 🙂

  261. thank you mrs.laih ..but I try again to submit again my application…kukunin ko pa po sa employer ko paano po if aapin parin ung before ultrasound ko pwedi ko ba I submit ung pt.kit…??advice namn po ano po ba dapat sabhin…kasi emergency po ung miscarriage po..thank u sa reply po

  262. Hi liah, thank you very much again for describing your experiences. Yes, I thought so too that it depends on the SSS officer accepting the documents and the officers evaluating them. It was good that your claim was approved. Thanks again, liah. Many will be helped by your relevant info.

  263. Hi ms.nora I filed it a week after my miscarriage. At first I was hesitant to filed it beacuse it’s just 5 1/2 weeks. But I just submit the requirements then they told me that they would asses it first and folluw up it after month, and to my surprise i didn’t expect to get my cheque earlier..

    Hi beverlyn, just try to file to your sss, even if you dont have the before ultrasound, just present to them the after ultrasound, OB history and medical certificate.. I dont submit to them my PT kit..
    But I think it also depends on person who will asses your documents, I first went to sss marikina they are asking me to provide the before and after ultrasound I told them that i just had the after ultrasound and i also don’t have histopath since there is no raspa done to me, thats why i decided to go to other sss branch which is the fairview branch, they told me to wait after a month i thought they will not aprrove may claims. But i got my cheque after 2-3weeks.

  264. good day po ma’am Nora bakit nag file po ako sa sss mat-1 and mat-2 and after ultrasound,ob history,medical certificate,pano po kung wala ako before na ultrasound kasi d ko po alam na 6-7weeks na po pala ako buntis ano pa po dapat ko gawin paraa claim ko po ung benifit …at Hindi ko kasi nakuwa umg prenancy test ko sa hospital ..kasi d ko po alam na kailangan un sa sss…

  265. good day bakit po nung na file ko na po ung mat-1 and mat-2 lhat naman po na file ko na bakit binalik parin ng sss sa akin at sinabi at kailangan pa daw po ng pregnancy test if wala na ko nun and before and after ng result mg ultrasound ehh after LNG meron ako kasi d ko naman Alam na buntis ako anu ba dapat I file ko….okk na ba ung pregnancy test nlng po..kahit wala na ung before ng result ng ultrasound

  266. Hi Yna, sorry no. You have to file your claim, and you have to take your maternity leave. Talk with your HR and make sure your documents are complete: MAT1 and MAT2, ultrasound report before and after, medical cert, OB history, histopathology report if there is.

  267. Hi po Ms. Nora, I filed Mat1 with our hr then after 1 week i had a miscarriage. I wish I don’t have to file my miscarriage. Can I get my maternity benefit even without filing Mat 2 and without taking the Maternity leave? Thanks

  268. Hi Sie, you can try filing. SSS really needs ultrasound reports because they need proofs that you were pregnant. You can ask for medical certificate from your OB. Docs required: MAT1, before-and-after ultrasound, OB history report and medical certificate from OB

  269. Hi liah, thanks for sharing your nice experience with SSS. This means that if our documents are correct and complete, we can get our benefit quickly. Thanks also for mentioning 5 1/2 weeks — that means SSS also considers weeks of pregnancy fewer than 8 weeks. In their notification rule, they mention 60 days of pregnancy as the earliest time to file MAT1. May I ask if you filed your MAT1 earlier than 60 days and they accepted it?

  270. Hi ms nora. I had pt this may 1 and it was positive. then I had check up may 3 because I had bleeding. my ob told me to have ultrasound may 4 but unfortunately i lost my baby at this moment. Today I miscarried. can i still file maternity with sss even without ultrsound? We learned about it only for 3 days. two or 3 moscaq preggy. Was supposed to have ultrasound today, but I miscarried. What are the docs that I should file? thanks po

  271. Hi everyone, Ms.Nora,
    I had miscarriage 5 1/2weeks no raspa perform..
    I got my cheque 2-3weeks after I submit the requirements, MAT 1, Before-after ultrasound, OB history, Medical certificate, since I have a B-HCG result I also attach it also if you have a histopathology. I filed it in SSS Fairview Branch.

  272. Hi po nagfile ako ng Mat1 ko sa hr namen then after 1week i had a miscarriage, ayoko na sanang ifile yung miscarriage ko, makakakuha pa po ba ako ng maternity benefit even without filing Mat 2 and without taking the Maternity leave? Thanks

  273. Hi Katheleen, so sad about these kinds of employers. Did you give them your miscarriage papers? Do you think they will really file your papers with SSS? Remember, they have not remitted your contributions and loan payments. You’re no longer their employee when you miscarried, so it should be you filing your claim as a Separated employee. Their legal duty is to remit your contributions and loan payments asap and to give you a certificate of separation. If they refuse to give you a cert of separation, you can file this Affidavit of Undertaking instead.
    About “advancement”: An employer is required to advance the maternity benefit to the employee within 30 days of the filing of the maternity leave. You’re no longer their employee.
    Tell your former HR that SSS will not accept your papers even if they’re the ones filing because the SSS officer will check your records and will find that you’re not eligible because you don’t have posted contributions within Jan to Dec 2015. So ask them to remit your contributions and your loan payments that they have deducted from your pay. Besides, why will they spend time and effort to file? You’re no longer their employee.

  274. Katheleen dela Rosa

    Good afternoon po Ms. Nora, This is Katheleen po again, re: I spoke with our HR & asked them to give me an exact date when they can remit my whole year 2015 contributions and my loan payments so I can file for my benefit claim for miscarriage. They told me to submit to them my requirements and they’ll be the one to file. I feel there’s something po, they mentioned “Advancement”. Do you have an idea if their action is correct, Ms. Nora? Though they did not respond to my real concern about remittance of my contributions po. Thanks a lot again Ms. Nora.

  275. Hi Ms. Nors! As of today nasa HR na po namin ang papers ko. I don’t know if subject pa cya for reevaluation sa SSS branch na papasahan nila. Saka if ever po kasi na igrant nila yung 78 days, para useless na kasi 2 weeks na rin po akong pumapasok. Though nung una ang dapat na balik ko sa work is May 4 pa. Thank you po. Your blog talaga really helps. Madami na rin po akong naging questions dito na nabigyan nyo ng sagot. God bless po.

  276. Hi Sel, I’m sad about that. I’m not sure about the result if you ask for reevaluation. If you have time and if you like, you can go to SSS and ask if you can request for reevaluation.

  277. Hi Ms. Nors. Sad to say po SSS approved only 60 even if all documents I filed show I had operation. My OB was surprised the benefit was just like Normal Delivery. I attached po Discharge Summary, Operative Technique etc. The one who assessed my papers is a doctor po at SSS Marikina.

  278. Hi Maricel, yes, try submitting your pregnancy test signed by your licensed medical professional. Fill up Mat-1 form and attach a letter explaining why you were not able to pass your MAT-1 before miscarriage. Write that you were about to file your MAT-1 when you had your miscarriage.

  279. Hi Sel, if it’s ectopic pregnancy with operation, the number of leave days is 78 days. Your OB should write 78 days in the medical certificate and you should submit operating room documents.

  280. Hi Ms. Nors, just want to inquire if SSS gives only 60 days even if operated due to ectopic pregnancy?

  281. Hi Ms nora, thank u for ur replay…. I already pass my ultrasound before mscarriage so Yong need ko nlng s ultrasound after mscarriage, pwede po ba Na instead of ultrasound, pregnancy test report nlng signed by medical Prof. With license no…

  282. Hi Ms nora, thank you for your reply. I have ultrasound before miscarriage. What I need is ultrasound after miscarriage. Instead of ultrasound, will my pregnancy test report signed by medical professional with license no. be accepted? Another question: I wasn’t able to pass my mat 1 because when our SSS representative went to SSS and asked about mat 1 in miscarriage, they said no, and after 2 months that I filed my mat 2 they asked for my mat 1.

  283. Hi Maricel, the ultrasound reports before and after miscarriage, with attached report signed by the OB or medical professional with license no.

  284. Hi Christine, usually the check is delivered to your address (voluntary or self-employed member) within 1 month to 2 months. Enroll online so you can track your claim. SSS online registration

  285. Gud pm po mrs Nora. How long is maternity benefit processing? I’ve filed my claim before holy week. What is the status of my claim? tnx po

  286. Gud am! What is authenticated UT2 result that is being required by SSS for my maternity benefit claim. I had miscarriage.

  287. Hi mam tanong ko lng po kung makakaavail pa po ba ko ng maternity benefits kung walang histopath report pero meron po ako lahat ng requirements meron po ako except ung histopath?

  288. Hi. May i ask u mam if i can still avail the maternity benefits after i miscarriage last march 19 althoug i dont have histopath? Thank you

  289. Hi Ayene, yes, you can file, as long as you are eligible. Check here to check if you are eligible: Did you file your maternity notification before your delivery? If not, there’s a chance it might not be approved. But there are others whose claims were approved. Fill up MAT1 and attach a letter explaining why you were not able to file your notification prior to delivery. If you gave birth at a DOH-licensed hospital, this is a plus point.

  290. Hi good day. Can I file for maternity benefit even if I gave birth more than a year ago. I have contributions prior to my pregnancy. tnx

  291. HI Freyleen, you can file as soon as you have all your documents. The time frame for filing is 10 years, but of course, you file as soon as you can. Please see the list of requirements above. Maternity benefit cheques are usually issued within 1 month or more.

  292. Hi Admin, I got pregnant this march 23, 2016. then had miscarriage this April 6, 2016. I filed MAT1 this April 13, 2016. When can I filed my miscarriage claim? and what are the requirements so I can get them from the hospital where I had my check-ups and how many days do they process so I can get my benefit? Thanks

  293. Hi Katheleen, I hope you got your medical cert, discharge papers, histopathology report and ultrasound reports before and after miscarriage, so you can file later on. You have a time frame of 10 years to file. This means you have time to force your former employer to remit your SSS contributions. Xerox your 2015 payslips in which your SSS deductions appear. SSS needs these proofs. Write a formal letter to your former employer requesting them to remit all your 2015 SSS contributions immediately because you need them for your maternity benefit claim and future claims. List in your letter your contributions (applicable month, employee’s share deducted, employer share, and total monthly contribution). Mention that you will be filing for your maternity benefit claim after their remittance of your payments. Make follow-ups through the phone, and mention that you will file a complaint with SSS if they don’t remit. Later on, if your former employer does not remit, file a complaint with the SSS, presenting copies of your payslips as proofs, plus proof of employment like ID, or any document proving your employment with your former company. You need to have your contributions posted before you can file your maternity benefit claim — you will not qualify for the mat benefit if you don’t have at least 3 contributions within Oct 2014 to Sep 2015. You should have 6 contributions within that period to get your maximum benefit.

    Hi po Ms. Nora, I resigned at work December 2015, i have a problem with that employer po na hindi po nila paid ung SSS contribution ko po ng buong year 2015, pero naikaltas na po nila s akin as well as yung loan ko po naikaltas na pero almost half lang po ung napaid sa SSS. For voluntary contribution po na-skipped ko po ang January & February 2016, nakapagstart pa lang po ako makapaghulog this year ng March 2016. And then I got pregnant po Feb 1, 2016 but had miscarriage March 28,2016, na-D&C po ako ng April 3 & discharged na po ng April 4. Question ko po Ms. Nora if I’m qualified pa po ba to claim the benefits for miscarriage? since my employer ay hindi naghulog ng whole year 2015 & this year 2016 is March pa lang po nahulugan ko. Hindi pa din po ako nakapag-file ng MAT1 kasi po bigla po ako ngmiscarriage & i waited 1 week para mag pass out si baby sa akin then saka po ako na D&C, then after 1 week ulit ng rest ngaun pa lang po din ako magpplan magfile ng benefit claim for miscarriage po…Thank you po Ms. Nora..

  295. Hi,

    Just want to inquire lang po, Yung friend ko kasi hindi pa sya nakaka submit ng MAT1 kasi nag antay sya ng ultrasound report.. First ultrasound po kasi nya hindi nagbigay ng print copy kasi daw wala pa heart beat which mga 1 month palang… Then after 2 months nag pa ultrasound na po sya ulet… Then they found out na wala na talaga heart beat yung baby… Pwede po ba na sabay e submit yung MAT1 and MAT 2 nya?

    Thanks in advance

  296. Hi liah, it depends on the medical certificate issued by your OB. If you have no ultrasound reports before and after, and if your OB does not certify your pregnancy, it might be difficult to prove your pregnancy. In the maternity notification form, it says notify SSS at least 60 days from the date of conception, so I think they recognize pregnancy from the 60th day. So it might be better to claim sickness benefit. Sorry I’m not sure. Ask others too.

  297. hi ms nora gud pm po. i had miscarriage a week ago and i was a member of sss. now before the miscarriage happend i already resigned last feb 27,2016. tanong ko lang po makukuha ko parin po ba ung sss benefit(maternity ) ko?? ma iapply ko padin po ba? employed ako nung oct 2014 hanggang feb 27 2016.

  298. hi ms. nora, i had miscarriage 5 1/2 weeks, no raspa perfom.. just want to ask if i could file it as maternity benifit or sick benefit? thanks

  299. Hi jenelyn, I think the SSS needs it as another proof that you were really pregnant for at least 2 months before you had incomplete miscarriage

  300. Ana Marie Vasquez

    Gud pm po voluntary member po kc aq qualified po b aq magfile pr s miscarriage kc nung nagpachek up aq ung arw n un din kc nagkarun ng bleeding ang lumbas s ultrasound ko blighted ovum di npo ko niraspa kc kusa n lumabas..niresetahan nlng po ko ng oby ko,tnx po

  301. hi ms. nora why they need the histopathology?

  302. Hi Grace, sad to say, based on comments on our blogs, for miscarriage cases, SSS uses the number of leave days recommended/written by the OB in the medical certificate as basis for computation. You can ask your OB to give you more leave days.

  303. Good day Ms. Nora. I had a complete miscarriage (no raspa required) and was able to submit the necessary maternity documents to our office. The medical secretary of my ob told me that i can go back to work 2 weeks after i had the miscariage. That I just need to get the fit to work form. Is this possible? But can i maximize the 60days maternity leave?

  304. I had miscarriage last 2008 and got separated from my employer 2009. i was not able to file for my maternity reimbursment. can i still avail?

  305. Hi mitch, the number of pregnancy is important, specially if the evaluator that gets your file is very thorough, so I think it’s wise if you go to the nearest SSS branch with your ID and ultrasound or pregnancy report and correct your incorrect MAT 1 entry. It might also be better if you just file the printed MAT-1 form, since you’re already at SSS and you also have the ultrasound or pregnancy report. Ask others too.

  306. Hi ms nora, ask regarding online mat1. I filled “2” on a question of “number of pregnancy prior to this delivery” I though it was asking my number of pregnancy for my present but it was not. this is my second baby, and i made a mistake filing the number of pregnancy. is there any problem with this when I file the mat2?

  307. pwede po ba malaman ang list na pwede ihulog sa sss?

  308. Hi Emilyn, no. Birth certificate is not required because you did not give birth.

  309. Hi ms nora. If i file miscarriage .birt certificate needed or not?

  310. Hi Arlene, your semester of contingency is Jan to June 2014. The 12 months before that — Jan to Dec 2013 — is where SSS looks for 3 to 6 monthly contributions. Sorry you did not qualify for maternity benefit. Ask others too.

  311. I gave birth april 22 2014. my last contribution of sss was jan.29 2012. Can I avail of maternity benefits?

  312. Hi Erika, if your due is Oct 2016, SSS will look for 3 to 6 contributions within July 2015 to June 2016. Your 2014 to Apr 2015 contributions won’t be counted. Yes, you can still pay for Jan as long as you pay for the whole quarter of Jan to March. Pay on or before the end of March. However, if you pay at SSS, you can still pay until April 10 or 15 or 20 or 25 or 30/31, depending on the last digit of your SSS no. SSS payment deadlines. But pay on or before March 31, to be sure.

  313. hi ms nora, can I still pay for jan? even if I pay towards the end of march? and also how about my contributions for dec 2014 to april 2015, won’t they be counted? My due is oct

  314. Hi Mary Janille, yes you can qualify even if you’re out of work, as long as you have paid the needed contributions. If you give birth in Oct, you should have paid at least 3 contributions within July 2015 to June 2016. Here’s a guide to check if you’re eligible for SSS maternity benefit. Resign properly so you can request for your cert of separation with date of separation and cert of non-advancement of benefit.

  315. Mary Janille Briones

    Hi Nora,

    I am pregnant for 2 months, but I’m planning to resign before I give birth. My problem is , can I still get maternity benefits from SSS. What requirements do I need to get the maternity benefits even if I no longer is working.

    Thank you for a reply

  316. Hi Erika, you said you’re 2 months pregnant now. If you give birth in Oct, SSS will look for 3 to 6 contributions within July 2015 to June 2016. So if you pay for Jan 2016 to June 2016, these will be considered for your maternity benefit. If you give birth in Sep, SSS will look for 3 to 6 contributions within Apr 2015 to Mar 2016. So if you pay for Jan 2016 to Mar 2016, these will be considered. So this month, pay for Jan to Mar 2016, then next quarter, pay for Apr to June. Pay higher so your benefit will be higher. In the new SSS circular, they said that we can increase our SSS contributions by any number of levels if we are younger than 55.

  317. and how do I know if I can still file. my contributions last year were:
    dec =220
    jan =275
    feb =275
    I’m voluntary. How much can I get? and what if I pay again this year, can I know if thse can be used for my maternity benefit computation?

  318. and also I was told by the sss teller that my dec.2014 to april 2015 contributions are no longer counted. because what were used were my 5 months contributions when I worked june to oct.2014, then nov. I don’t have work and my hubby was able to pay only dec.2014 to april 2015,

    may question is pwede paba ako mag hulog sa sss para sa may2015 to march2016?

  319. hi mrs nora, i just want to ask if I can again file for maternity benefits. last year I filed for my first pregnancy and I got my cheque in october. Now I’m 2 months pregnant with my 2nd baby.

  320. Hi reg, request from your OB a medical certificate explaining that yours was a complete spontaneous abortion and a complete miscarriage so there was no need for a D&C or any operation, and therefore there are no histopathology or operating room reports. When you go back to your OB, bring all hospital documents so that she will remember your case. God bless too

  321. Hi Apple, ectopic pregnancy is covered by SSS under its maternity benefit program. If you file for this, you cannot file for SSS sickness benefit at the same time. About the magna carta special leave benefit: this is provided if you have surgery due to a gynecological disorder. This will depend on your employer if they accept ectopic pregnancy as a gynecological disorder. In the CSC list of gynecological disorders in relation to the magna carta, ectopic pregnancy is not in the list. Ask your employer.
    About no. of days to be paid: Under the SSS maternity benefit program, they will pay for 60 days, but if your medical certificate shows maybe 40 or 50 days, they will pay only these no. of days. If SSS paid for 60, and later they will find out you did not actually spend 60 days on leave, they will ask for return of the money, or they will deduct from future benefits. Ask others too

  322. Hi Ms. Nora,
    I have notified last july 2015 and due to give birth end of January 2016, but unfortunately i had my missed abortion/miscarriaged October 2015. I suffer spontaneous missed abortion and also I was diagnose having (HYPOKALEMIA) from that situation I was confined in Philipinne General Hospital (PGH). I have taken my 60 days of maternity leave and passed sss maternity requirements to my employer including all the necessary medical papers for my case of missed abortion. Unfortunately SSS returned my papers to my employer because I don’t have histopath record and operating room report from the hospital. I only have clinical abstract, discharge summary from My OB and I also dont have my ultrasound after the missed abortion. What should I do and ask to the hospital now so they can give me those requiremnts. Please kindly help me to get and confirm it.
    thanks and godbless!

  323. Hi ms nora! I had emergency surgery last jan 27 due to ectopic pregnancy. May I ask if i can avail sickness and magna carta at the same time? And I got back to work feb.22. is the benefit for 2 mos full pay under magna carta and complete even if I got back to work with less 2 mos of leave? TIA

  324. Hi Mrs. Nora,
    Thank you so much for the concern . Especially for taking time responding in all the comments.

  325. My employer didnt even told me whats the problem why till now I dont received any reinbursement. they just said that they are only allowed to pass all the documents on the 20th of the month. I really dont understand.

  326. Hi Mrs Nora.
    Yes I have an online SSS account but I cant view anything at all, my employer said that they already passed all the documents but as I made a follow up to SSS today it didnt show up that they send the documents.So, I went to my employer and they just said that SSS accepted the documents without stamped. Im really upset Mrs Nora. I consumed my time without any help at all. No reinbursement or anything within 1month and 2 weeks.

    What should I do Mrs. Nora.?

  327. Hi Ann, sorry you lost your baby. Do you have an online SSS account? If none yet, enroll so you can check your maternity claim, if it’s still being evaluated or if it’s already denied. Online SSS registration If denied, usually they include also the reason. If you can remedy the reason, you can refile your claim again.

  328. Hi Mrs. Nora.
    I had my light bleeding last Jan.18,2016 midnight and at Jan. 19, 2016 the bleeding continued at that time its already a heavy bleeding, I missed my period for 2 weeks and 3days but I am sure that were expecting a baby. So I attempted to talk to an OB but I spoke with her/ his assistant and the assistant adviced me to do a Pregnancy test at home. I did so, and it is faint positive. I will just cut what happened next.. I went to my OB by morning of Jan.20,2016 and I did a TVS. The result said ” Thick endometrium with a heterogenous echopattern suggestive of blood and/ or retained products of conception . My OB said that it is positive ended that I am pregnant sad to say I lost it due to spontaneous abortion or miscarriage. My OB adviced me to file a maternity leave .At the same time I filed a maternity leave date Jan.19, 2016 date filed: Jan. 20,2016 which all the documents needed is already completed and passed to my employer. But still I didnt received my Maternity benefits. My employer said that SSS required 2 ultrasound whixh should be before and after but since I only got 1 ultrasound dated Jan.20,2016..

    My question is that why I still didnt received my maternity since I already passed all the documents but with just 1 ultrasound which is said so evident.

    please advice me what to do.. I lost a baby and I dont know what to do now , it is so frustrating that I just cant received my Maternity benefits. no one likes to loose a child.

    Please take a time dor my message.

  329. Hi Erika, sorry I’m not sure. There might be a question about your pregnancy, as you’re only 6 weeks pregnant when you miscarried. It seems SSS recognizes pregnancy from the 8th weeks of pregnancy, based on instructions on the SSS maternity notification form. If not qualified, it might be considered under sickness benefit. But of course, I could be wrong. Ask others too

  330. Hi ms Nora, I would like to ask if I am qualified for Sss maternity benefits? I had miscarriage with by pregnancy at 6weeks. My Ob did not performed d&c because its only 6weeks and she told me that there is no need to performed d&c since its only 6weeks. I have submitted already to my employer my medical certificate before and after, ultrasound before and after, Ob history but no histopath submitted. Mat notification was submitted together with explanation why it was submitted late. Please kindly help confirm thanks

  331. Hi Jennifer, yes, you can still file if you’re sure you’re eligible. Check your eligibility using this guide: SSS maternity benefit eligibility. There could be a problem with your failure to notify SSS, but you can try filing. Fill up the notification forms then attach a letter to each, explaining why you were not able to file your notification. They might also question why you did not file in 2013 and 2014, so prepare your answer. I hope you’ll get your benefits.

  332. Hi Ms. Nora can i still claim my SSS Maternity benefits i had suffered 2 miscarriage and undergone d&c last 2013 and 2014 but i didn’t file for notification because before i wasn’t aware of that and it happened twice but i have all my necessary documents for filling will it still be approved? Can i still get 2 benefits? I know it is not much since i am a voluntary member but i just want to know.

  333. Hi Joanah Marie, yes, you can still file if you’re eligible. When did you have your operation for ectopic pregnancy? This is how to check your SSS maternity eligibility. These are the documents required for your ectopic pregnancy claim.

  334. how about the ectophic pregnancy ? its like a miscarriage also ? and it happens in 2013 can we file it as a late filing of maternity?

  335. Hi mau, first is are you qualified? If you miscarried last month or this month, do you have at least 3 contributions with Oct 2014 to Sep 2015? If yes, and if the miscarriage is complete, ask for a medical certificate and OB report from your OB. There are those commenting here that SSS requires histopathology report, but you can try filing even without this report. The SSS citizen’s charter does not require it if the miscarriage is complete; I don’t know why some SSS officers require it.

  336. good day.I have miscarriage lately but i didnt undergo raspa. do i have sss benefit for that though i have tvu ultrasoud

  337. Hi jen, your semester of miscarriage is Oct 2015 to Mar 2016. To avail of SSS maternity benefit, you should have paid at least 3 contributions within Oct 2014 to Sep 2015. If you pay for this first quarter, it will not affect your maternity claim. If you’re eligible, see the required docs for incomplete miscarriage in the list above.

  338. Hi! I had a positive pt january 21, 2016. I had tvs feb 9 and no baby was seen on ultrasound. Yesterday I had bleeding and had another ultrasound a while ago. The doctor said I had anembryonic pregnancy and needed to have DandC. My concern is if I can avail of sss maternity benefit. It’s only now I’ll update my contributions. My payments have gaps and I wasn’t able to pay first quarter of 2016. Can I pay for this quarter at the same time avail of maternity benefit. Thanks po

  339. Hi May, sorry I can’t assure you, as the SSS evaluates per case. But in the SSS Citizen’s Charter 2014, if the miscarriage is complete and D&C was not performed, what are required are only the ultrasound before and after, medical cert and OB report, plus the usual other docs.
    Was your ultrasound performed after your 60th day of pregnancy? This is only my opinion: As the MAT1 form specifies submission after at least 60 days of pregnancy, my thought is that SSS believes there’s real pregnancy after the 60th day, so you might have a better chance of claim approval if your ultrasound was done after 60th day. Of course, the best is to visit SSS and ask.

  340. Hi Ms. Nora,

    I would just like to inquire if you are familiar if a claim might be approved even without passing hispathology report. I had a miscarriage at home and by the time I went to the ER, the baby is no longer there. I had already passed my before and after ultrasound plus medical certificate but they have informed me that I would still need to pass hispathologY report. I called the hospital but since miscarriage happened at home, no specimen was passed and no hispathology report can be given. I’m quite frustrated with the slow process and I’m hoping for any ideas regarding this. Thanks.

  341. Hi anne, sad to say, if you did not pay at least 3 contributions within Oct 2014 to Sep 2015, you’re not eligible to claim for maternity benefit from SSS.

  342. gud eve po. year 2009 was my last sss payment. the rest I wasn’t able to pay because the other companies gave no benefits. last january 8, 2016 I miscarried here in our house. I have ultrasound after miscarriage. Can I get a benefit if I file with sss? I’m unemployed

  343. Hi Diane, did you mean you worked again starting May 6, 2015? Your semester of miscarriage is Oct 2015 to Mar 2016. You’re qualified for SSS maternity benefit if you’re on leave and if you paid at least 3 months within Oct 2014 to Sep 2015. You’re qualified for this benefit. Complete your documents then file your claim

  344. I stopped working jan. 08, 2015. I paid sss through my last employer for 7 years and 8 months, then I stopped working from jan. 09 To may 05, 2015 then I worked again may 06, 2016 up to now, but now I’m on maternity because I had miscarriage. I’ve read that I should have paid at least 12 months to avail of my sss benefits pertaining miscarriage?

  345. Hi stephanie, do you have at least 3 contributions within May to Sep 2015? If yes, you’re qualified for SSS maternity benefit. Your OB should give a medical certificate writing your no. of leave days. Call your HR about your leave.

  346. hi po. can I get benefits from sss? last worked in 2010 and started working again may 2015. got pregnant on november 2015 and notified january 2016 but had a miscarriage this february. I have ultrasound report after my miscarriage..

  347. Hi Lieni, the bill has still major processes to go through before it becomes law. You’ve read that Senate committees have approved the bill, but it will still be presented to the whole Senate for approval, and then the Senate and the House as one body will need to approve it, and then the final bill will be presented to Pres. Aquino or the next president for approval.

  348. Lieni G. Magallones

    Hi, Mrs Nora, just read from different publications that the 100 day maternity leave law has been approved by the Senate on January 18, 2016 and it will be effective 15 days after publication on Official Gazzete or on a newspaper on general circulation. I’m delivering my second baby on Feb 25, 2016 as advised by my OB through CS. Will I then be covered by the new law?

  349. Hi Ayessa, not yet. The bill is still in the Senate. Small businesses (less than 10 employees or less than 3M in value) are exempted. I also think that OFWs, voluntary members, non-working wives and self-employed members are exempted as the bill specifically stated “for female employees in the government service and in the private sector.”

  350. Hi Ms. Nora, I just want to know if the 100-day maternity leave has been approved already? tnx

  351. Hi Anna Marie, you can file, but you need medical documents from your OB to prove that you were pregnant and that you miscarried. I wonder why your OB advised sick leave and not maternity leave. Do you have an ultrasound showing you were pregnant? You need these also from your OB: obstetrical history and medical certificate describing your miscarriage and why D&C was not performed.

  352. Can I avail my mat.benefit even if my ob just advice me to file sick leave only? Had miscarriage last Jan.23 and haven’t filed mat 1 yet since I just learned I was pregnant last Jan.13? Was so sad that I suffered miscarriage.d& c was not done also because I already suffered bleeding for almost 3 days and upon having next ultrasound there was no baby at all.ob advice me to have sick leave for one week.

  353. Hi Ms. Nora.. Sss returned my documents as soon as i have sumbitted my mat2.. Histopath report.. Med cert.. But sss says that i need to submit my d&c report.. Then i advised the clinic and my ob.. And they told me that the portion that they have filled on my m2 form will servr as the d&c report. Is this true? Please help.. Im so tired of getting the run around between sss.. My office and the maternity clinic. Its been 2 months na na raspa ako.. But untill now di pa na process papers to claim my maternity.

  354. Hi christine_1607, did you file your maternity leave? Yes, your employer should advance your maternity benefit within 30 days of the day you filed your maternity leave. But just like many other employers, your employer wants to be sure first that you’re qualified for the maternity benefit so they want to see first all your documents required by SSS.

  355. Hi ms Nora, I had a miscarriage jan 17 but I only filed my mat 1 Jan 22 as my employer requested. Is it mandatory that my employer should advance the days I was already away from work? (January 18 until now?) Thanks.

  356. Hi Ediel, are you having your D&C within this Jan-Mar quarter? You can file for sickness benefit if you have paid at least 3 contributions within Oct 2014 to Sep 2015. Bring 3 SSS forms to your doctor so he/she can sign them. SSS Sickness Benefit claim forms

  357. Hi Ms. Nora, I would like to ask if I could possibly get any benefit for I am an sss member and my contribution is more than 120 mos. Already And only this july 2015 that I changed my status as voluntary member and paid once. I am asking because I am not pregnant but I am scheduled to undergo D&C to get the polyps from my uterus

  358. I had my ultrasound jan 19 and my doctor said i had a missed abortion. I was supposed to be on my 12th week but the baby stopped growing at 7wks 6 days. And there was no heartbeat. I had my first u/s dec 24 and the baby was 7 wks 4 days. 167bpm.
    I am in Dubai right now and waiting for my time to be admitted to ER for d&c. They wont do this procedure immediately as i was not bleeding heavily yet. They want me to pass blood naturally. Then if heavy bleeding occurs then they’ll do the d&c. My current health insuance does not cover maternity related conditions. I alreadt filed my maternity notification sometime dec 26 after learning of my pregnancy.
    1. As a voluntary ofw member. How can i file for maternity benefits if i had a miscarriage
    2. What documenrs do i need.

    Any info for similar experience will be highly appreciated. Thank you and God bless sa mga katulad kong nag miscarriage. I feel your loss and its a sad experience for us all.

  359. Hi po
    Namiscarriage ako last 2014 then ngayun ko lang pp ifafile. My miscarriage ay hindi alam ng last employer ko. Then now 2016 nsa new employer n ko at ngyun ko lang din po ipapasa ang mga documents for maternity reimbursement. Ngayun kumpleto n po q ng docs at pnasa n s sss , hnahanapan po ko ng computation. San ko po kukunin un? Sa previous employer or s new employer n po?

  360. Hi lek, the time frame for filing for matenity benefit is 10 years, but of course, you’re advised to file as soon as you have completed your documents. Failure to file MAT1 before miscarriage is understandable, because we don’t know we’re going to miscarry, so you fill up MAT1 with attached letter of explanation. The histopathology report, D&C report and the medical cert are significant documents, so submit these plus others that you have. Sorry I don’t know anyone with the same case as yours, but there were 2 who commented here that their claims were approved even when they failed to submit MAT1 on time, but there were others who commented and whose claims were not approved. Talk with your HR. God bless too.

  361. Good day Ms. Nora! I just had miscarriage last January 13, 2015. 5am that time I was rushed to the Hospital due to bleeding and severe pain on my lower belly. Me and my husband was shocked when the Doctor said I need to be at the OR right away for I am already suffering from miscarriage, for we don’t know that I am pregnant. I notify my employer regarding my situation and since I don’t know that I am pregnant and that notification of my maternity to SSS is not filed, they asked me to fill up SSS MAT 2 with list of requirements like Explanation letter for failure to notify pregnancy, 2 valid ID’s, Histopath Report, D & C Report, Medical Certificate and Pregnancy test before and after miscarriage. First question is how long will the SSS permits me to complete my requirements? Second is, upon my verification to the attending nurse before I left the Hospital last January 15, 2016 there was no Pregnancy test before and after my miscarriage? therefore I wouldn’t be able to provide this requirement. Will this mean I will no longer be approve of this maternity benefit? Or is there any substitute for this pregnancy test? Third is, is there really a chance of being approve of this maternity benefit knowing that I already failed to do the first requirement which is the MAT 1? Lastly, do you know someone who has been approve of this benefit regardless of lack of MAT 1 and pregnancy test before and after? A big thanks to you! God Bless Always!!

  362. Hi Yel, are you employed? If employed, did you take 60 days off for maternity leave? If you were on leave, yes, you can file. If voluntary, yes, you can try filing with the documents that you have. The SSS officer will screen your documents.

  363. Mrs nora i had miscarriage july but havent process my benefit. Can i still process it if i only have my serum test showing positive, transv untrasound and a medical cert showing a complete abortion. Cause i only undergone one transv.

  364. Hi christine_1607,
    1. the date of the D&C will be the basis of your contingency
    2. If you filed 60 days of leave with SSS and SSS pays you for 60 days, but then you actually spend only a few days of leave, SSS will get back the maternity benefit it has given you. It will pay only for the no. of days you were actually on leave. How will SSS know? Through your SSS contributions for the 2 months (60 days filed). I don’t know if there are other ways they can know. Talk with your HR.
    3. Include MAT1 in your submission with an attached letter explaining you were about to file your MAT1 when you miscarried.

  365. Hi asking, yes, proofs before and after. It can be cert of pregnancy by your OB (before), or medical cert of D&C by your OB (after), to substitute for the ultrasound missing. It’s good that you’ve notified SSS before your D&C.

  366. hi po. I’ve notified sss jan 12 then I had d&c ako jan 15. What pregnancy test is required? before and after ultrasound? I have only 1 ultrasound

  367. Hi Mrs Nora, I just had a miscarriage last Sunday and wondering if I can claim for maternity benefit due to the following:
    1) I had a incomplete miscarriage/abortion Sunday but only had D&C Wednesday; I looked for a more affordable Doctor to do the procedure.
    2) if the doctor wrote in my medical certificate that I should be taking leave from work 60 days, do I still have the option not to follow that 60 days? I wish to go back to work immediately.
    3) I found out that I was pregnant January 7 (based from ultrasound) and forgot to file for Mat1 as I was so busy at work and I didn’t know that I should file a notification to SSS. So I wasn’t able to file then I had miscarriage January 17. Please reply back soon. Thank you po.

  368. Hi Arlhyn, the SSS officer will decide if your medical report can take the place of a histopath report. Try presenting other related medical documents that you have.

  369. Hi Camille, do you mean on my blogs? Just tell me or send me a copy of the comments you want removed and I will remove it:

  370. I accidentally commented on a wrong blog and I don’t want someone to read it. Thanks. Hello Nora! I just want to ask. How do you delete comments here?

  371. Hi Mrs Nora. I don’t have histopath report. Is medical record possible po?

  372. Hello Anne, does she have at least 3 contributions within the 12-month period before Oct 2015? The SSS maternity benefit page includes incomplete abortion. If she can submit the complete documents for miscarriage to SSS, I think her claim can be approved. Include MAT1 with letter saying she was about to file MAT1 when she had the incomplete abortion.

  373. Hi Yvonie, if the gap between your date of separation and date of delivery is less than 6 months, SSS will require you to submit those documents. Try asking your previous company. If not, talk with the SSS officer if you can instead submit affidavits.

  374. hi i just want to ask what if you can’t present cert of Separation, L501 from my last employer because i got awol in their company, Can i have my maternity claim? I delivered last November 18,2015 and the SSS office need a employment Certificate and L501 for my claims. I need an advice

  375. Hi lyn, if you received maternity benefits for 60 days, then you should be on leave for 60 days. SSS will know that you were not on leave on those days when it sees that you have complete SSS contributions for Dec to Feb. SSS can get back your benefits if it sees a violation. Talk with your HR.

  376. good am po. can my friend get something from sss? She admitted at the hospital she tried to abort, and she had d&c.

  377. Hi Nora, Good day! I’ve had MC last Dec 12. Filed my SSS requirement last Jan 5 at the same time I went back to work on the same day. Got my check (Mat benefits) today – Jan 12. My question is since I did not complete my normal maternity leave of 60 days, how will be the processing of my payroll since i already got my maternity benefits. Will there be deduction for SSS and other government mandatory stuff? please advise. thank you.

  378. Hi Ms.Nora,

Just this friday i had my ultrasound showng i had a complete muscarriage, but i already resigned from my previous employment and currently on training wth my new job.

I would to ask if can file a maternity benefit? I only have a pregnancy test at home before my miscarriage… If i can file what are the requirements?
    Thanks andnwaiting for ur reply..

  384. Hi michelle, SSS said this deposit-to-account process is faster, so it should be credited to your employer’s account within a week or 2 weeks after approval.

  385. Hi nora I submitted my mat2 dec. 2, 2015 and was approved. When will the benefit be credited to the account of my employer? I miscarried july 22, 2015

  386. Hi Ms. Nora,

    I had miscarriage last month and notified my employer. But my employer and I decided not to file a Maternity Leave and only filed 1 week SL that was the week I had miscarriage and was in labor pain. I’ve file SSS mat for complete miscarriage. My question is since I won’t be taking the 60 days leave should my employer still pay me the full amount?

  387. hello. this is joan again. my friend got miscarriage for 2 months. but she doesn’t know that she is pregnant that time. So she went to hospital to have raspa and but she didnt stay in hispital. the doctor said shes already ok.
    my question is she didnt pass mat-1 in sss. then when i called sss they told i will file sss sickness but she didnt confine in hospital then it lapse for 10days submission. but my friend went to sss and they say ‘its for re-reimbursement.

    is that possible only mat-2 and other documents will give in sss? are they going to received that?

    sorry for my grammar. i am having problem can it comes english language. thanks for undertanding. =)

  388. hi ms.nora..ask q lang po..pde ba ko mag loan sa sss at the same time mag fifile dn po q ng maternity reinbursement? pde po ba un pagsabayin? kc nun nag update aq pde na pla ko mag un po..if pde po kya xa pagsabayin? nkapag file n kc q for member loan.. un s maternity q kc dpa po npprocess kc kulang p ko ng mga requiremnets.

    Many thanks po..

  389. Hi Merille, just check your online SSS account from time to time. The whole process might take a month or more. Usually the check is processed by SSS Diliman or regional main branch, and then delivered to your address by postal mail. You can make follow-ups at your branch, if there’s no update in your account for about 3 weeks.

  390. Hi Ms. Nora, I filed maternity claim yesterday, I would like to ask when would be the estimated date to see it reflect on my sss online? as of the moment it says that I dont have maternity benefit(my sss online). And is it okay na abangan ko na lang na may magenerate na check tapos iclaim ko sa branch itself(if im approved)?

    Looking forward for your insights about my concern.

    Thanks in advance 🙂

  391. Hi Angel, file the documents that you have: Filled-up MAT1 (even if not submitted prior to confinement; might not be required because you were hospitalized), MAT2, ultrasound report/s, medical certificate from OB, OB history report certified by doctor with PRC no., printed name and signature, hospital statement or discharge report, SSS ID and another valid photo ID (with xerox copy). There should be histopathology report, but just pray that they will accept the hospital report as substitute. The SSS officer will evaluate your docs and will advise you if you need to submit additional docs.

  392. Hi mrs nora. I just want to ask po regarding my situation. I found out im pregnant thru home pt with positibe result last nov. 9 then nov 10 at night i rushed to the hospital due to pain in my abdomen and have slight bleeding. Since there’s no available ultrasound i was advised to go back on nov 11 morning for ultrasound. It was diagnosed ectopic pregnancy and needed to be confined that same day for further test if operation or medical management is needed. I was confined 11 days for medical management where they injected methotrexate for ectopic cases. Its a good thing my body responded good to medicines and no need for surgery to remove the embryo as it will melt on its own because of the meds. they said i can file for maternity benefits from sss for ectopic pregnancy. My question po is I don’t have histopath or d and c result/report. What documents do I need to submit to file a claim. Thanks a lot.

  393. Hi Rogielyn, if you really like to file, you can try, and see what the front officer will say about it. If your claim is rejected, you can see “Denied” in your online SSS account (register, so you can check your account), and yes, you can file again. What you do is you wait for your documents to get returned by postal mail (might take 1 or more months after denial), correct the error, or submit the missing document, and re-file. By the way, you have miscarriage documents that might not be easy to duplicate if lost in the mail, so consider waiting for your cert of separation. Ask others too.

  394. and also.. already received ur email like qna po un page.. 🙂

  395. hi ms. nora, in my certification of non advance payment, it’s indicated when I started working and when I resigned. It’s like they unified the certificate. if ever po it’s rejected, will they inform me? and if it’s rejected, can I file again?

  396. Hi Rogielyn, I think it’s better that you wait for your cert of separation (with date of separation). There have been cases when the SSS front officer accepted documents, but were later on rejected by the final evaluator.

  397. hi ms.nora. yes all requirements are complete po, except po the certificate of separation. The HR doesn’t want to release until after I get my backpay which is still being processed. Can I file without the cert.of separation? I have certificate of non advanced payment for maternity. thanks po..

  398. Hi Rogielyn, you have 10 years to file your claim, but of course, file asap when you have completed your documents. I hope your D&C documents (histopathology report, medical certificate, ultrasound before and after) are complete.

  399. Hi ms. nora. Is there a deadline for filing sss maternity benefit after miscarriage? I had D&C nov.4. My company cannot yet give me a certificate of separation because until now they’re processing my backpay. But I already have l501 copy and cert.of non advanced cash payment. thanks po.

  400. Hi joan, sorry about your baby. Documents: MAT1, MAT2, birth certificate and/or fetal death certificate (orig and xerox, can be NSO or stamped-signed-sealed by the local civil registrar), SSS ID or 2 valid photos IDs. Bring medical certificate/or hospital discharge paper and OB history form, in case they require these.

  401. hi nora.. i had a normal delivery last day but after 30mins my baby died. I would to ask what are documents need to file in sss reimbursment?..

  402. Hi Precious, did your previous employer give your cert of separation and cert of non-advancement of maternity benefit? If yes, try to file your claim at the SSS branch where this employer remits its collections — there are times the SSS officer no longer requires the L501 if they have the company L501 on file. If they again require your L501, go to SSS Diliman and file your complaint against your former employer (letter of complaint, IDs, payslips and other proofs of employment with this employer).
    If the gap between your separation date and delivery date is more than 6 months, pay 1 monthly contribution as Voluntary, wait until posting so your status will change to Voluntary, then file your maternity claim as Voluntary (you don’t need separation documents).

  403. Hi, I’m separated from my employer. My previous employer doesnt want to give l501 because they just simply dont want to. What legal actions I can do. Hope to hear from you. Thanks

  404. Hi marie, yes, you can file as Separated or Voluntary after you resign, but you need to make sure that your company will give you cert of separation, cert of non-advancement of maternity benefit and L501 after you have resigned. Maybe file your resignation asap and comply with their 30-day rule to preserve good relations, so you can get your certificates easily from them.

  405. hi ms.nora, i had a a heavy bleeding that lead to miscarriage ob said that it was a complete abortion and no d &c needed.i have all the proof like ultrasound, blood result before and after my my ultraosund report it says that i was 8weeks pregnant.i havent file my mat 1 because i am planning to resign this question is, can i file it directly to sss office and claim my benefit after i resigned?i dont want to take my 60 days is a requirement in our company to render 30 days of work before leaving the it ok to file maternity benefit after 30 days from the time i miscarried?

  406. Hi precious, sent you email.

  407. Hi Ms. Nora, I got miscarriage last October 13th. This was supposed to be our first baby. We discovered this at home before I take a bath, a big meat came out of me. So we rushed to the hospital to further check what happened to me. That time I have a feeling but I am not pretty sure if I am really pregnant. I took a picture of the meat in case we will be needing it for consultation and due to panic mode because of the meat, we forgot to bring it at the hospital. Further examination was done with me and I showed them the picture of the meat. The OB confirmed to me that it was my baby. After the internal examination and ultrasound, I was advised that Raspa is no longer needed for me as the meat that went out of me was already everything.

    I have done pregnancy test at home and at first it was a negative result then later on after there was a big meat that went out from me, we discovered that there’s a fainted 2nd line appeared on the PT, in which the nurse and Doctor that I have showed it informed me that it was a positive.

    Now my inquiry is will my maternity benefit will be approved even though we don’t have histopath test?

    I have submitted the following to our HR: MAT1, MAT2, Medical Certificate, Medical Abstract, Ultra-sound and Pregnancy Test (made at the hospital which resulted to Negative because the baby already went out), SSS-UMID Stub and my Company ID.

    This is the first time I have encountered this kind of experience and I want to know if everything that I have submitted is already fine and I have a big chance of approval? I am currently on Maternity Leave resting.

    Thank you in advance for your advise. Will wait for your email. God bless.

  408. Hi angel, sorry the SSS list of leave days for its sickness benefit program is not published – I can’t find it online. But I saw some posts where OBs gave 7 days to 14 days for D&C due to AUB. You can ask your HR about the special leave for women under RA 9719 Magna Carta of Women. This is a benefit paid for by employers, in addition to the SSS sickness benefit, if the sickness/surgery is due to a gynecological disorder, as certified by your OB.

  409. Hi Erika, your SSS check should be deposited to your account as SSS checks are all crossed, but you can try encashing at the issuing branch (on the check). Usually they encash it. Bring 2 valid IDs. If encashed, there’s no fee. There’s no tax. SSS benefits are tax-free.

  410. Hi! Ms. Nora, I had D&C po last Aug 2015 for Abnormal Uterine Bleeding then my doctor issued and advised me to rest for 45 days. so I filed the same # of days of leave at the office. then they computed po my sss claims for 45 days, but in the sss notification, what the SSS approved is only 21 days, and according to them, that’s the maximum # of days allowed for D&C caused by AUB. Is that correct? In what memo from sss can I see their limits for medical reimbursement. please help po. Thanks a lot.

  411. hi ms. nora can I get immediately cash from the bank written on my cheque if I encash it at this bank? and is there a deduction like tax? thank u po in advance.

  412. Hi jenalyn, I think your documents are enough to prove that you were pregnant and miscarried. Maybe your docs are still being evaluated. Maybe it’s not always that they enter the remarks “For Review” in member’s records. Just continue praying that your claim will be approved. Follow up at the branch where you filed after maybe 6 weeks to 2 months.

  413. Hi Liza, you can still file if you have your medical documents and if you are eligible. When was your miscarriage or IUFD? And what months did you have SSS contributions for within 17 months immediately before your IUFD? You can check this SSS maternity benefit eligibility guide.

  414. Hi Erika, if you have a savings/checking account (any bank), deposit it. It will be available for withdrawal on the 3rd day. If no account, encash it at the bank branch written on the left bottom part of your check. Bring your IDs.

  415. Hi Erika, if you have a savings/checking account (any bank), deposit it. If none, encash it at the bank branch written on the left bottom part of your check. Bring your IDs.

  416. Good day ms nora, asking about my maternity. had miscarriage po without filing MAT1. I wasn’t able to have ultrasound and pregnancy test before because I didn’t expect. i had completed abortion as my attending doctor said. i have only pregnancy test in the hospital after miscarriage but it is still positive. and i have beta hcg after abortion but a bit low level, as my OB said. So the requirements I submitted were MAT1, MAT2, SSS ID WITH COMPANY ID, WRITTEN EXPLANATION, SKETCH from home going to hospital, OB history, med. certificate , pregnancy test result positive and beta- hcg after miscarriage. Are these accepted by SSS? until now nothing is posted on my sss account. thanks a lot and I’m hoping for your response

  417. Hi. I’d like to know, can I still have my maternity/miscarriage benefit? Almost two years that I had IUFD (miscarriage) and my last contribution was like five years ago.. pls reply. Tnx

  418. hi ms nora. I received my cheque yesterday. at which bank can I have it encashed?

  419. Hi marie, sorry I don’t know if serum tests are enough for SSS, but you can try filing. Did you file MAT1 with SSS? You can request 2 medical certificates from your OB (one for pregnancy, and the other for miscarriage and the reason D&C was not performed), and then file together with the serum tests and MAT1/MAT2 forms.

  420. Hi nicole, are you asking if you can still file your maternity claim? Yes, you can still file your claim. The time limit for filing is 10 years, but of course file as soon as you can. It’s good that your documents are complete.

  421. and anu po un susundin kong requirements? un pang previous employee, self employed and voluntary memvers po b?? or for incomplete miscarriage lang po? thanks..

  422. hi Ms.Nora, I resigned from work last june 10, 2015. then I registered as self employed with sss. I paid for october 1st week for the months of july-sept, so I can use it for my maternity. But my OB said I’ve lost my baby. That’s why I’ll have D&C anytime I experience bleeding. Can I file my sss for miscarriage? thanks po.

  423. hi po i had misscarriage accdng to my ob last aug. cause nag bleeding po ako for 3weeks then my ob asked me to have a serum test and it shows im positive. my ob advised me to rest but when sept came i had my normal menstrual cycle returned same this month of october so i decided to take another serum test but this time it shows neGative. gsto ko pong malaman if pwede po ako mkapag ng mat leave khit serum preg test lng ang meron ako..

  424. hi ms nora i had miscarried last july and my employer let me go on mat leave it was a complete miscarriage i have my papers with me i would just like to know cause im about to return to work this nov but i havent passed my papers yet cause i still need to undergo one last it possible that i can still file my mat leave?

  425. Hi Sarah, file your MAT1 asap with your employer, as you’re already past 60 days. File it asap because of what you said about a possible miscarriage. I pray that you and your baby are well, but at the same time let’s keep trusting the Lord and His plans for your baby. In case a miscarriage happens, and a D&C will be performed, ask for a histopathology report (this is required for your SSS claim) and a medical certificate from your OB, in addition to the other documents. Request the histopathology report before D&C so your OB knows you need it.

  426. Hi miss nora, im 8weeks pregnant i am employed but not yet submitted a MAT 1 to my employer. My dr. said possible but not yet sure maybe i am going to have a misscarriage because in my first ultrasound no heartbeat found my doctor will decide on nov.5, 2015 if still no hearthbeat found. Please pray for us and kindly help me on what will i do for my sss benefit. Thanks much…

  427. Hi Merille, SSS maternity checks are not released to the branches, but to the SSS postal mail center. Wait for your check from your postman, or you can visit your local post office (registered mail section) about 3 weeks from your check date (you can check your online account) and ask if you already have your registered mail from SSS.

  428. I was a separated member before i gave birth Ms. Nora, I am already with another employer. So I might be receiving the check in my current address, but I would like to know if it is possible to just get it in the said sss branch that I will be processing the reimbursement?

  429. Hi Merille, yes, I think you can print it, since online maternity notification is already an option. I think the SSS maternity benefit is now deposited to the account of employers, who will in turn give you the money through payroll or cash. Employers are now required to file with SSS their Sickness and Maternity Benefit Payment (SMB) thru Bank form. There are now comments here that their Sickness benefit claims are not being approved because their employers have not filed the SMB form. Ask your HR about it.

  430. Hi Ms. Nora, I lost my Mat-1 form but it shows in my SSS online the details of the notification, can I print that in replacement for the mat-1 form?
    Is it possible for SSS to let me just get the check in their branch if in case my claim got approved. I stay at work during my shift so I’m worried that I cannot be able to have ASAP since the process in our post offices are very slow.

  431. Hi Jennifer, try talking again with your OB and ask for another medical certificate explaining why you did not have to undergo D&C. Tell her secretary she can charge you for the certificate. If your OB refuses to issue another medical certificate, try filing in another SSS branch to see what the officers there will say to you.

  432. Good Day! I have a miscarriage/complete abortion, No D&C was done, but SSS doctors are asking for Histopathology report and D&C report even though its noted there in my medical certificate that i didnt undergo the process. My OB insists that it already okay but SSS also insists that I should submit a certification from my doctor why i didnt take D&C. What should i do? Thanks ms nora

  433. Hi Abby, if you were employed around the time of your miscarriage, it’s a requirement that you should have taken your maternity leave. Why? This is because it’s the leave days which SSS is paying for. SSS will know if you did not take a leave by checking your SSS contributions during those months. If you took a leave, but for 30 days only, maybe they can still give you the 60-day payment if 30 days is not written in your documents. Ask others too.

  434. Hi Jenny, sorry I don’t know if your pathology report will show that you’re only 7 weeks pregnant that time, and I don’t know if they consider weeks of pregnancy in their miscarriage claim evaluation. In their MAT1 form, it says there that you file MAT1 at least 60 days from date of conception. But if you don’t spend much for filing, then I think you can try filing.

  435. Hi Jenny, yes, you’re qualified, and yes, you can still file your claim. Fill up MAT1 and attach a letter explaining why you were not able to file your MAT1 before your miscarriage (… I planned to file my MAT1 but then I unexpectedly miscarried…). Check if you have your OB consultation, or pregnancy test result or ultrasound result (because they require ultrasound report before and after), although your pathology report should already be a good proof of pregnancy.

  436. Hi Ms.Nora, thank you for the info..just want to know the process on filing for the maternity reimbursement. Do I really have to take on leave for 2 months just to claim my benefits? Thank you..

  437. I was 7weeks pregnant by the time of my miscarriage

  438. Hi Ms. Nora. I had a miscarriage happened more than a year ago(Feb.2014) i was umployed and had a contribution from oct 2012 to oct 2013. Can i still claim for my benefit? I only have my surgical pathology report and my hospital bill cert. Thank you for the response.

  439. Hi eliza, if you have a histopathology report, then that will help prove you were pregnant, and maybe a medical pregnancy certificate from your OB will help. About no. of days leave: miscarriage is given the same no. of leave days as normal delivery, which is 60 days. And usually the no. of leave days is written by your OB in your medical certificate. I hope you can complete your papers so you can hope for approval. Ask the SSS officer upon submission of documents.

  440. hi ms.nora, i want to know how long can i take leave after my raspa? and also it says on the requirements that an ultrasound is needed before and after d and c but my first ultrasound says no fetal heart beat and no fetal movement. can i still use that as an ultrasound before d and c? thanks

  441. Hi aileen, yes, you can file even if your miscarried several months ago, even last year or 2 years ago, as long as you have the needed documents. And as long as you were eligible when you miscarried? You miscarried in January — that means you should have paid at least 3 contributions within Oct 2013 to Sep 2014. Include MAT1 and attach letter explaining why you weren’t able to file your MAT1 (“I was about to file my MAT1 when I unexpectedly miscarried”).

  442. When I miscarried I was not employed then presently I have work. I have complete ultrasound to prove I was pregnant and have ultrasound after I miscarred, to prove I lost my child. Can I still file even if I miscarried in january 2015?

  443. Hi aileen, yes, if you have the needed documents? Are you voluntary or employed? If employed, did you go on leave when you miscarried. If employed, it’s required that you were on leave after you miscarried. SSS will pay your leave days? If voluntary, do you have documents to prove you were pregnant and that you miscarried, like ultrasound before and after miscarriage? Did you have D& C? or medical certificate from your OB?

  444. hi good evening Can I file for miscarriage because I miscarried january 2015. Someone told me I can file. Can I file this October 2015? thanks po

  445. Hi rosielyn, SSS maternity benefit processing takes 1 month or more. Miscarriage cases take a longer time because SSS still verifies your pregnancy and D and C. It’s sad but there are a lot of employers who do not advance maternity benefits due to various reasons — either they don’t have cash or they worry they won’t be reimbursed by SSS. Talk with your HR or employer.

  446. Goood day ms nora.i would like to ask how long is the process in sss maternity claim.i am currently employed and had a miscarriage last sept 2 due to anembroyonic pregnancy.i failed to notify sss prior on my d and c because the ob gyne told me to have follow up employer told me that it would take 2 months to process.but when i saw on the conditions of sss the employer must advance the benefit within 30 days from date of maternity application.does approval of sss takes that long?

  447. Hi Abby, are you a very new employee? If you have been working for months, and your employer has remitted your contributions to SSS, your status in the SSS database is Employed. This means you should file as Employed because your status in the SSS database is Employed. SSS will reject your claim if there are discrepancies.

  448. Hi Ms. Nora, i had an incomplete miscarriage. Is it ok if I filed it for reimbursement as voluntary even if I’m employed due to I’m not comfortable telling my employer about it

  449. Hi Erika, you will verify if your claim has been approved and if your cheque has been released. Your cheque will be sent to you via registered postal mail to your home address.

  450. Hi Brianna, do you mean the company did not advance your maternity benefit before you took your leave? Meaning you did not get any advance payment from your company and that you were not given any payment during your maternity leave? If none, talk to your employer and request your maternity benefit. If they refuse, you can go to Main SSS with your IDs and file your complaint. But if they say they haven’t received the check yet, then wait a while.

  451. hi ms nora, I’ve just passed my requirements at the sss branch. The employee who assisted me told me to verify after 1 month? What will i verify? My benefit processing or my cheque? and can I get my cheque at the same sss branch? thank you po.

  452. Hi Ms. Nora, It was confirmed by SSS that it was already settled.The officer in charged also present to me the check no. For my reimbursement but until now my company didn’t gve it to me.

  453. Hi Brianna, maybe your benefit has not been given to your employer yet. Processing takes 1 month or more. Enroll in online SSS so you can check the status of your benefit.

  454. Hi Ms, I would like to ask if SSS already settled my reimbursement maternity benefit dated September 8, 2015 but my company doesn’t give it to me until now. What can I do for this? Should I report this to SSS? Thanks.

  455. Hi again Ms. Nora… I would like to ask if the company must pay me in advance for the maternity so I could claim my SSS maternity benefit? If so, when does they need to pay me? I didn’t file my Mat-1 due to pre-term birth. Thanks

  456. merlyn nancy m. sardenia

    kelan po kaya ma release yong checque ko.kase po july 30,2015 pa ako nagpasa ng mga requirements para sa miscarriage ko.

  457. Hi Rienne, that’s good. It might be easier if you file through your HR since they’re required to certify your MAT1 and MAT2.

  458. Hi Ms. Nora… yes, I am still on my 60-days maternity leave. I gave birth (pre-term) last August 1 and will be back to work on October 5. Thanks.

  459. Hi Rienne, you should have asked your HR about filing MAT1. The time for MAT1 filing is not dependent on the date of maternity leave. MAT1 is filed between 2nd month of pregnancy and delivery date. Did you have a 60-day maternity leave? Or are you now on maternity leave? Meaning you did not work for 60 days. Because if your company paid for your SSS contribution in August and September, SSS will know that you worked during those days, and if you did not have your maternity leave, SSS has nothing to pay you for. The SSS maternity benefit is to pay you for your maternity leave. Ask your HR about this. But if you enjoyed your maternity leave, you can file. Submit filled-up MAT1 with attached letter explaining why you weren’t able to file MAT2 before delivery, MAT2, and birth certificate. If you have hospital discharge paper or medical certificate (recommended leave should be at least 60 days), bring them in case the SSS officer asks for it. Can you write here again if you enjoyed your 60-day maternity leave.

  460. Hi Ms. Nora. Can I claim my maternity leave? I wasn’t able to file my Mat-1 because the start of my maternity leave should be August 17 as my estimated delivery is September 2. But I had pre-term birth last August 1. If I still can claim, what are the requirements? Thanks po.

  461. Hi Amie, if your operation is in September, and if you paid for Apr May June 2014, you can qualify for half of your benefit. File MAT1 asap before the operation. If your operation
    is in October, sad to say, you won’t qualify. There are deadlines for payment — this is why you’re not allowed to pay for long past quarters. See this eligibility chart: Ask others too

  462. Ask lang po… Pede po ba ako mag file ng for miscarriage khit walang ultrasound before miscarriage? Kc first check up ko nung sept 19…sb po nya 2months preggy na ko then I was advc to be on bed rest kc po nag bleeding ako… At the same time pinag ultrasound… Nung mag ppa ultrasound sana ako nung mon sept 21, nag bleeding ako ng malala… So pumunta po ako sa doc. i was advise na mag paultrasound na to know kung my heartbeat pa.. Nung nagpaultrasound ako..wala na daw pong baby… Pede pa po kaya?

  463. Hi my contribution are not updated since June last year. I am scheduled to undergo D and C next week due to hemmorrhagic cyst on my right ovary. What can I do so I could avail benefits from SSS?thanks

  464. Hi justine, don’t worry so much, you can file when you get your papers. You have 10 years to file, but of course you should file as soon as you have your docs.

  465. justine ellen valerio

    Up to when can we file mat2? Is there a deadline? My baby is already 3 months old but I haven’t filed mat2. It’s taking so long — the release of my L501 and my cert. of separation and non cash advance. please! give me an answer.

  466. Hi rubylyn, yes, file your claim. Submit your baby’s fetal death certificate.

  467. Hi ms, Good evening po. Can I file mat 2 even if the baby died? Thanks po.

  468. Hi Ms. Nora, I have miscarriage on May 27, 2015. I did not accomplished and submit my MAT 1 before the miscarriage. But then I already passed all the docs needed to SSS thru my employer. Histopath,two xerox of valid Id’s, MAT2 with explanation letter for not accomplishing MAT 1, operative record,ultrasound before and after,and OB history. But why until now I have’nt yet received my benefit. How long will it takes?I will appreciate your response. Thank you

  469. Hi Christine, yes, you can file with the documents that you have because it’s complete miscarriage. See above for the list of documents required for complete miscarriage. Fill up MAT1 — your case is miscarriage so it’s understandable if you weren’t able to file before miscarriage. Yes, you can attach a letter on short bond paper.

  470. haven’t applied for mat 1&2 but i already have the papers..i have my serum test that shoqs positive and i have two transv ultrasound result here…1st that shows i still have remaining tissues second with no remaining tissues but i did not undergo d&c since my menstrual cycle had return. is it enough for a requirement?thanks do i still need to make a letter regarding the reason i havent pass my mat1 early ?

  471. Hi Christine, I thought it was bleeding only and no miscarriage, so I suggested sickness benefit. What happened was you had a complete miscarriage, which means you deserve a 60-day maternity benefit. Do you mean you have already filed MAT1 and MAT2 and other documents for complete miscarriage? And have you received your 60-day maternity benefit from your company through payroll or check? And have SSS sent the reimbursement to your company? If yes, then you already have availed of your maternity benefit. For one miscarriage, you will receive only one set of maternity benefit (60-day paid maternity leave).

  472. after the bleeding stops i had a transv ultrasound and shows there are remaining clots from conception but it took me 2weeks to return to my ob cause my kids got sick and my doctor asked me to undergo another transv..and the result was clear there were no tissues left. dnt know wat to do..

  473. i was 9weeks pregnant and the bleeding resulted to miscarriage. the company let me file for mat 1 and 2. i did not undergo d&c since it was a natural miscarriage. even i did not undergo d&c am i still be elugible for the mat benefits and the 2months leave?

  474. Hi Christine, it should be sickness leave — you file a sickness leave form with your OB’s certificate of illness (diagnosis should not be bed rest; should be the cause of bleeding). Here are SSS sickness claim forms. Maternity leave/benefit is given for delivery or miscarriage, not for bleeding in the first months of pregnancy. Have you filed MAT1 as part of your maternity claim? You can file MAT1 online if you and your employer have online SSS accounts.

  475. i was 9 weeks pregnant back then. i was not able to work when the bleeding started and the company let me file for maternity leave. and told me that it will be a 2 months leave. will it be covered by sss mat leave?sorry this is my first time.

  476. Hi Christine, if you have the documents listed above, then you can file. You can include your filled-up MAT1 with an attached letter explaining why you weren’t able to file MAT1 ealier. Sorry I don’t know how many months or weeks from conception does SSS specialists consider as pregnancy. Based on the SSS MAT1 form, SSS instruction is to file MAT1 at least 60 days from conception, so 60-days pregnant and further must be what they consider for the maternity benefit. But I’m not sure. File – I hope you get approval. Ask others too.

  477. Christine Joy R. Murillo

    hi i would just like to ask if im eligible for maternity benefit. i had miscarriage last july 28 where i started bleeding that last for 2 weeks i thought that was just normal since i have an irregular monthly period but after the bleeding stops i went to my ob and found out that i was pregnant and had miscarriage after several test was done. a week after i went back to my ob and no more tissues remain and advises me not to undergo d&c instead she gave me a lists of medicines i need to take. so i was not able to fill my mat1 sss. please help me. hoping for a positive response.

  478. Good eve ms nora i already filed my mat 2 and finally its ok all the requirements are ok within 1 month i can receive my cheque.tenks a lot

  479. Hi Marneli, it’s good you have all your requirements. Wish you and your business the best. God bless too.

  480. I’ve filed po my mat1 and have my requirements. It’s good I can file without rs1. I filed rs1 because we have a business. thanks a lot for your help. You’re helping many. God bless

  481. Hi Erika, when filing your MAT2 documents, you can present your voter’s ID and your SSS ID application acknowledgment stub. Bring your Philhealth ID, in case they ask for a supporting ID. When encashing your check, you can show your voter’s ID and Philhealth ID.

  482. Hi Marneli, I’m puzzled that SSS accepted your RS1 form. They should have advised you that you can continue paying SSS without filing any form because you were Employed previously. Your membership status will be automatically changed to Voluntary when your first payment as Voluntary is posted. You’re qualified for maternity benefit. Did you file your MAT1 before giving birth? Because the gap between your resignation date and delivery date is less than 6 months, you need to request a Certification of Separation and Cert of Non-Advancement of Maternity Benefit plus L501 form from your previous employer.

  483. Was Employed po previously. almost 8 years po, then I resigned po march 17, 2015 then i file my self employed on march 25, 2015 to continue the benefits of sss po. but I lost my Rs1 po.

  484. hi what are the valid IDs for claiming maternity benefits? My IDs are only voters and philheath. I just applied for my sss id, and it will take 3-4 months for me to receive my ID. The one I asked, she’s not sure.

  485. Hi Marneli, do you mean your contributions were from Mar to Aug and onwards? and no contributions before Mar 2015? If yes, you were not yet qualified for maternity benefit when you gave birth. SSS requires at least 3 contributions within the 12 months before your semester of contingency.

  486. August 12, 2015 po I gave birth. I filed po rs1 march 25, 2015 then I continued paying my contributions

  487. Hi Marneli, you can still file as long as you already have a Date of Coverage (DOC) in your records. DOC will mean that you filed your RS1 correctly previously, and that your payments to SSS are valid. What to do? Go to SSS and ask if you have a Date of Coverage. When will you deliver your child? Or when did you give birth? So I can tell you which months you should have paid in order to qualify for maternity benefit.

  488. If I lost my rs1, can I still file mat2 with sss po. thanks

  489. Hi mary, sorry I don’t know how fast they’re processing correction requests for OB history. Try looking for papers that prove your first pregnancy/miscarriage. I think they don’t accept affidavits to prove miscarriage. I’ll get back if I find something.

  490. wow nice,thank you maam sobra bawas sa gastos po pabalik balik sa sss branch.

  491. Hi Erika, yes, you get that form from SSS, but I’m not sure if it’s always available at all branches. You can download from here and then print:

  492. thank u for the response. i also want to ask po if the ob history form is available at sss. my ob told me to get the form from sss so she can sign.

  493. Hi Erika, you have 10 years to file your claim, but of course, file asap when you have all the documents. If the gap between your delivery date and your job separation date is less than 6 months, you need Certificate of Separation and Cert of Non-Advancement of SSS Maternity Benefit and L501 form. Other documents: MAT1, MAT2, birth certificate or fetal death certificate. Yes, ask for a new certificate — your name should be spelled correctly.

  494. Good evening po.. Mam ngayon lang po ako sinagot ng sss about dun sa email ko inconsistencies sa no. Of pregnancy due to undeclared miscarriage

    I had ultrasound result on and before,Medical cert po.
    Thanks hoping your reply po.

  498. Hi arashazz, even here in Metro Manila, many SSS officers will tell you that you need your SSS-stamped MAT1. Yes, it might be better if you file in SSS Diliman. I hope you get your benefit.

  499. thank you po ms nora, I asked here in our area and it seems that they don’t know here that we can avail of maternity even if we have not submitted mat 1. I’m now here in the province, I might just file in the main sss? thanks po

  500. Hi sheila, SSS considered only your contributions for Sep 23 to Dec 2014, or Oct to Dec 2014 (3 months). Your semester of contingency was Jan to June 2015. SSS considers the 6 highest monthly contributions within the 12 months before semester of contingency. You only had 3 months, so your benefit was one-half. Ask others too

  501. Hi arashazz, you were qualified in 2006 if you had paid at least 3 contributions within Jan 2005 to Dec 2005. If qualified, yes, you can try filing. Submission of MAT1 before delivery is a requirement, but you can write a letter to SSS explaining why you were not able to file your MAT1 before delivery. Attach this letter to a filled-up MAT1. Some of those who commented on our blogs were able to receive their benefit even without filing MAT1; others wrote their claims were rejected. I don’t know the factors, but try filing your claim. Your claim could be approved.

  502. Hi mary, yes, there are several inconsistencies, and I’m also wondering what’s the best to do. First, getting an affidavit is not hard. Just google samples of Affidavit of Discrepancy and change some details, or add some info. Type on Microsoft Word, then print (Internet cafe can help). Then have it stamped and signed by a Notary Public. You can find them near schools and city halls (150 to 300 pesos). There are even free Notary public services offered by some councilors at city halls. I can help you make one after you decide what to declare to SSS. Let’s first think how to go about the discrepancies. It may be the best to make the info given on the approved claim our basis for all subsequent claims, but you said the OB history will disprove it. Ask others too. Let’s think

  503. Hi ms nora, I gave birth may 24, 2006, that was nine years ago and not aware that I’m eligible to claim maternity benefits that time. wasn’t able to submit mat 1 because I didn’t know I was already qualified that time. I checked my sss online if I was qualified, and I was surprised that the online inquiry system has computed for maternity, hehehe. can I file even if it was a long time ago. I have my check up records. Thanks

  504. I got hired Sept 23, 2014. I had a miscarriage on April 8, 2015. I submitted the list of contributions until March, total of 6 months. I took my 60 day leave. Now they only give me one month pay and not two. I don’t understand. Should it supposed to be two months pay? thank you

  505. hi,

    just wanna ask po i filed my maternity claim last july 23 2015 when should expect my check coming?thanks

  506. How about the birth certificate of my daughter? It’s written there she’s my 1st Pregnancy and my claim for her was already granted last June. I have already filed mat1 for my current preganacy before I came to know I’m eligible to file for my first pregnancies. If I’ll just file for my 2nd miscarriage po, I have my ob history for my 2nd miscarriage (3rd pregnancies) — it’s written there that my daughter is my 2nd pregnancy which is inconsistent with my sss record. What should I do to fix my record? Do I need to get affidavit also for her birth certificate to be able to get my claim on my miscarriage? how much this cost to get an affidavit? thank you so much

  507. Hi mary, it’s better then that you file your current pregnancy as 4th (better also because it’s the truth). Your only problem is your “3rd pregnancy” in your MAT1 for your 4th pregnancy. For discrepancies, SSS usually requires an affidavit, so an Affidavit of Discrepancy explaining why you wrote 3rd in your MAT1 should solve the discrepancy.

  508. Hi april joy, here’s how to see if you’re eligible: You are eligible if you have paid at least 3 months within April 2014 to March 2015. If you paid March 2015 to July 2015, sorry you’re not yet eligible. Ask others too

  509. hello may i ask if I’m eligible to apply for maternity benefit even if it has only been 5 months that Ive’ paid sss. I’m giving birth this sept. pls reply po so I’ll know what to do to avail of maternity benefit. thanks po

  510. And ms I don’t have the histopath record because according to the hospital we should have requested the histopath before. But obviously we didn’t know so we weren’t able to request

  511. Yes ms I’m on my 8mos. Now, I file it 3rd in my mat1 because I thought the 1st miscarriage is not included. what If no longer claim the benefit for my 1st miscarriage. just the 2nd miscarriage. The problem is the 1st is included in my ob history and my daughter listed 2nd, the total score po is g3p1 (1021) 1st miscarriage 2nd my daughter 3rd miscarriage. what should I do to get my benefit even for just the 2nd miscarriage. thanks po ms.nora

  512. Hi mary, after reading all your comments, I now understand that you had 2 miscarriages: the 1st and 3rd pregnancies, am I correct? For your current pregnancy (now on your 8th month), you wrote 3rd pregnancy in your MAT1, am I correct? Do you have complete documents to prove your first miscarriage? What are written on the birth certificate of the child for which your filing was successful and for which you received your first maternity benefit. Because if you lack documents for your first pregnancy/miscarriage, or if there are too many inconsistencies among the documents, it might be better if you just stick with what you claimed in your first successful benefit claim (your 2nd pregnancy), and just file for your 2nd miscarriage and your current pregnancy (3 claims in all). But of course analyze your birth certificates and related documents well, and ask others too, because I don’t know what documents you have and I don’t know what data were written in your documents. I wish you the best for all your claims.

  513. Hi mary, SSS can check the no. of children and order of birth and no. of pregnancies in the birth certificates, so make sure these match your data in your claim documents. For this current pregnancy, you said you wrote 3rd in your MAT1. So of course you know now to write 4th in your MAT2 form. Attach an Affidavit of Discrepancy to your MAT1. You state that you did not know that miscarriage is counted, you state the date of miscarriage, and then state that your latest delivery is your 4th pregnancy. SSS needs the no. of pregnancies because they give maternity benefits only for the first 4 pregnancies (miscarriages and deliveries).

  514. Hi mary, histopathology report is required if you had D&C or raspa. If no raspa, then the documents that you have should already be sufficient. If you had raspa, but there was no histopathology report, then try filing. I hope you’ll get your benefit.

  515. what if I don’t have histopath record in the hospital. I only have clinical abstract, discharge summary, ob history operation record. will they accept my filing? Thank you so much po

  516. I had miscarriage again last 2013. Now I’m 8 mos. Pregnant. I filed mat 1 last march and in my mat 1, I wrote this is my 3rd pregnancy. I didn’t know that miscarriage is included in the count. 1st miscarriage. this should be my 4th pregnancy if including the 1st miscarriage. last June 2015 I was able to claim my maternity for my first child so I don’t know if I’ll have a problem regarding no. of pregnancy with my subsequent claims. I went to sss and was told to wait for my delivery before I can fix my concern. What should I do? I want to fix my concern before my delivery. What papers do I need? thanks po

  517. May I ask how I can fix my records. I filed for maternity for my 1st baby ko. In the birth certificate, it’s 1st pregnancy which should have been 2nd because I had miscarriage before. I want to fix my records because I came to know I’m eligible to file my maternity for miscarriage before but there’s inconsistency in my ob history and in my record that I filed for my 1st baby, which I wrote as my 1st pregnancy. My 1st pregnancy should have been miscarriage. What should I do? Thanks

  518. Hi Miss Nora. I miscarried my 3rd baby, and when I gave birth to my 4th daughter, I stated on MAT-1 that she is my 3rd baby cause I don’t know that my miscarried baby was included on the list. Later did I know that my miscarried baby is included. When I filed MAT-2, I stated there that my daughter is my 4th child. Now when I’m trying to avail my maternity claim I can’t cause the details were mismatched. What should I do? If I’m going to make a letter, what should it state? Thank you.

  519. Hi Nora! I didn’t know I was pregnant. I tried many Pregnancy Tests but turned out to be negative. Last June 12, somethings came out of me then after a week I went to the doctor and she told me that I had miscarriage. No need for D&C/raspa. She only prescribed me to take ferrous. I was unable to inform my employer and SSS regarding this. I am thinking to file it but I think its too late; I’m not sure if they will approve it and Can I still avail my Maternity Leave in case? What should I do? Please help me. Thanks!

  520. Hi kechelyn, sad to say, you can’t use your husband’s membership. SSS will look into your own contributions, not your husband’s contributions.

  521. kechelyn montalban

    hello po mrs nora. I miscarried may 24, 2o15. I have sss but I failed to continue paying. Can I use my husband’s SSS, as we are married. What are the requirements? Thank you

  522. Hi Maricar, I’m puzzled that your OB did not ask you to have an ultrasound, or a pregnancy test. How can she be sure you’re pregnant? Can you get a certification from your OB that you were pregnant for how many months on Jan 21? If yes, ask SSS if you can submit a certification of pregnancy from your OB.

  523. Hi po, last jan 21 i had my check up but did not have an ultrasound, then on jan 29, I had complete miscarriage, so what should I do, as they are asking for my PT or ultrasound

  524. Hi joy, they allow representatives for sickness claims, so I think they also allow representatives for maternity claims. Give your authorization letter, plus your SSS ID or 2 valid IDs. Your grandma should also bring her own IDs.

  525. Hi Ms.Nora can i authorize my Grandmother to past all my documents to be submitted to the sss ? for miscarriage claim

  526. Hi Ms.Nora can i authorize my grandmother to submitted all my documents in miscarrariage

  527. Hi chim, yes, SSS requires histopathology report for incomplete miscarriage or if d&c was done. But try showing your medical certificate, ob form and d&c report plus the other docs listed

  528. hi good day. does all requirements stated above for incomplete miscarriage needed in filing for maternity benefit? i dont have a copy of histopathology report because i didnt submit the specimen to the hospital laboratory. thank you. GB.

  529. Hi Ms. Nora, I had a complete abortion last April 17. I passed all the requirements needed by sss for my maternity claim last april 23. I received a letter from sss stating that my claim was denied due to lack of histopatholigical report and dilatation and curretage report and for further interview is also stated . I was confused because i think the above documents are needed for an incomplete abortion,am I right? The letter also stated that I can appeal by filing a verified petition,what a verified petition means? Please help. thanks a lot

  530. Hi mira, if you miscarried May 5, 2015, your semester of contingency is Jan to June 2015, so SSS will look for 3 contributions within Jan to Dec 2014. If none, sorry, you will not qualify. Ask others too

  531. mira roxas magallen

    good pm po, can I file for miscarriage? Have paid 134 months under my past employer last 2007. I paid as voluntary last april 27, 2015 up to july. Have no MAT1 or MAT2. I miscarried May 5. Thanks po

  532. Hi maria, yes, you can avail if you paid at least 3 contributions within the 12 months before your semester of contingency. File your maternity notification online. Register at, if not yet registered.

  533. Good day! Hi Ms Nora, I’m here po in US since last year. an immigrant and I’m not working. Can I still avail sss maternity benefit? How will I process this benefit? By the way, i paid my monthly contribution for almost 10yrs when i was in the phils (employed) and now continue my contribution as voluntary. Thank you

  534. thank you miss nora for the time and help. more power

  535. Hi Sheryl, yes, if at least 3 contributions were paid within the 12 months prior to your semester of contingency. Refer to this eligibility check: I think the letter can be written on a clean bond paper. Write clearly, preferably printed style. Ask your OB a medical certificate (that you became pregnant on __ and that you miscarried on __ and had complete miscarriage)

  536. Hi Sheryl, yes, sad to say, the benefit is only for the first 4 deliveries or miscarriages, even if you were not yet a member before. Ask others too

  537. Hi Melody, you’re entitled to SSS maternity benefit, but you must show documents to SSS to prove to them that you were pregnant and that you miscarried. Main documents needed are proof of pregnancy (OB certification or ultrasound report) and proof of miscarriage like medical certificate.

  538. Hi po Ms. Nora, I miscarried po last March 21, 2015. I came to know I was pregnant on March 10. by the way I’m separated member since Oct 15, 2014 as I moved here to dubai. I wasn’t able to file for notification because after 10 days of knowing, I miscarried. by the way, I haven’t remitted from september till now. Am i entitled? I don’t have separation form and didn’t have d and c as it was complete abortion. Thank you po

  539. hi ms Nora. I have 3 kids Po and when I had them I was not yet a paying member. With my fourth I miscarried and I already have contributions. would it be my last maternity claim? even if I was not yet a member before?

  540. Hi ms nora. Would i qualify if i only have 8 contribution? 4 contributions from employer and 4 contributions from me as voluntary? I only have 3PT’s ultrasound after miscarriage because im not aware im pregnant. What do i ask from the OB for requirements in filling claim? Btw po is the letter have to be formal and typewritten? Thank u and more power.

  541. Hi cath, yes, that’s a good reason. Explain to SSS that you reported your pregnancy to your employer but did not yet have your ultrasound. You were about to get your ultrasound and to file your MAT1 with your employer when you had your miscarriage.

  542. Hi miss nora .. I had d&c last april 2 and im just filling my mat 2 but i ddint have mat1 submitted coz my employer that time ddnt submitteit coz i dont have my ultra sound now im separated with that company before a got my d&c..

  543. Tnx a lot Ms. Nora????

  544. hi ms.Nora,i just want to ask,i had my *d&c apr9 then my OB gave me 2wks leave.can i still have 60days leave frm sss?im stil waiting for histopath result.’.until when can i file mat2?thanks for the resply!

  545. Hi Raquel, I can’t say it’s sure because there was one who wrote in our other blog that her miscarriage leave total was based on her medical certificate, which was 25 days.
    Anyway, I hope your case is different, and you can already see it online, and that it’s approved. I hope you got 60 days.

  546. My documents were already evaluated. The staff told me that sss approved 60 days. My claim is still in processing as I submitted just last april 01. So I can’t yet check online. There’s no maternity notification yet appearing online. If it was approved by the SSS doctor, does it mean it’s sure that 60 days will be approved? Thanks

  547. Hi Raquel, I suggest you talk with your HR and inform them that you might be filing an additional leave of 30 days for a total of 60 days. Are you registered with SSS online? So you can check the number of days that was finally approved. I’m not sure if the SSS doctor’s 60-day recommendation is always followed even if they see a med certificate that recommends 30 days. Ask others too

  548. gud pm po Ms. Nora. I had miscarried last march 17. My ob only gave me a 1 month leave to rest as I didn’t have D&C. So I submitted to the office only 1 month leave as that was what’s in my med certificate. When I submitted my maternity benefit claim to sss, the SSS doctor approved 60 days. The office does not know yet that SSS gave me 60 days. What should I do? Thanks po

  549. Hi analou, it’s better to check your claim at the branch where you passed your requirements so they can check. You can also register at at non-peak hours like midnight so you can track your claim

  550. Hi po good day! I miscarried last march 14. I filed mat 2 but wasn’t able to file mat 1. that time I was about to file, but I suddenly had bleeding. I passed all the requirements. Ng may 2. I checked the status of my maternity claim via text, the svi pi ” no maternity claim filed”, what does this mean? Thanks po

  551. Hi rochelle, since you already miscarried and had D&C, file your MAT1 and MAT2 documents at the same time. So wait for your histopath and ultrasound reports and file your complete MAT2 docs and MAT1 at the same time.

  552. Hi ms nora. I had D&C mar.24, 3 months pregnant. My ultrasound is with the hospital and on apr 13 I can get my histopath. Is it okay that I wait for the results before I file my MAT1? What I have now are only overthecounter pregtest and card from health center. Can I file there? Thanks and god bless

  553. Hi jam, if you worked as single and then you got married, there’s no problem. But if you used your maiden name even though you’re already married, there’s a problem. You cannot easily change your married surname with SSS, so bring your birth and marriage certificates to your former employer and request that they use your married surname when they type your certificate of separation, cert of non-advancement of maternity benefit and L501. If your former employer refuses to use your married surname, include an Affidavit of Discrepancy in Surname. About eligibility: You’re eligible if you have at least 3 posted contributions within Oct 2013 to Sep 2014

  554. Good day maam! I would like to ask.. I have separated from employment last jan. 17, 2015 an d i suffered miscarriage last feb 17, 2015 and it was complete abortion.. I’m just worried about my documents because my status in SSS (which is im currently using is MARRIED using my ex partner’s last name ) When i work here in manila i used my last name when i was single.. can i still claim sss maternity benefit?

  555. Hi Angelica, I think E5 is already an obsolete SSS form. I can’t find any copy online. I think it’s because you can not apply as Voluntary member – a Voluntary member is a former Employed, former OFW, former non-working spouse, or former self-employed member. You can apply as Self-Employed, so what you can submit is your RS1 form. About online registration, look for the cashier-machine-printed numbers on your RS5 form. There’s a transaction no. there. Choose 6 digits. If you see SBR0509784564F, you can use 978456 or 597845, etc

  556. Hi po, what’s E 5 form in MAT2? How do we check online our contributions? i can’t register because there’s no OTC in my RS 5

  557. Hi Mybel, I hope that your claim will be approved. But in case your claim is denied, they will tell you the reason for denial. Remedy the reason for denial, and re-file again.

  558. Do u think that they going to accept that because i only have my histopath, ultrasound after and medical certificate from my doctor because until now im on leave so if they going to denied my papers meaning to say the 2 months that i am leave was not paid

  559. Thanks for the response ms Nora! They already accept my documents and they said that wait for the response if they going to accept or denied. I already wrote a letter regarding why i wasnt able to file mat 1 the SSS personnel which is the doctor specialist there told me

  560. Hi Mybelle, did the SSS officer at the counter evaluated your documents and accepted them? Were you not required to submit MAT1 with letter of explanation? Anyway, we hope your claim will be accepted. Register at, preferably at non-peak hours like midnight, so you can track your claim online. Sorry I don’t work with SSS, so I cannot make follow-ups.

  561. Can u follow up my documents there? How long it will take to know that its approve or denied because i am on my maternity leave now. And because i am in complete abortion my doctor said that no need for D&C which i didnt write on my letter that will submit on the sss

  562. Do you think that SSS will approved my maternity leave if i am miscarriage and the only thing that i presented is my histopath, ultrasound after miscarriage and med cert from doctor since i didnt know that i got pregnant i dont have pregnancy test until now i am on my maternity leave and waiting if there going to accept my document. Pls reply to my concern on this blog even if its not in my email because i didnt know my password thank you

  563. Hi anna, for miscarriage, it depends on the no. of days that will be given to you by your OB in your medical certificate

  564. hi nora! i’m currently going thru a miscarriage right now. it looks to be like i will have a complete miscarriage so i won’t need a d and c. would you know how many days is the required number of leaves for sss? thank you!

  565. Hi may, sorry, you’re right about your question, it’s only now I realize that we can’t prove to SSS that over-the-counter PTs are really ours, so now I doubt about their use with SSS. You can try filing all the docs you have, and see what the SSS officer will advise you. You can go there very early so you don’t waste so much time there at the branch.

  566. Hi Nora, thank you so much for your reply. These PTs were just over the counter kits i bought from the drugstore. Do i have i have to send it to sss as well together with the letter explaining why mat1 wasnt submitted? Thank you so much, i really appreacite your response.

  567. Hi may, I’m not sure if your 3 PT results can take the place of an ultrasound report, specially that it was only your 5th week. But you can try filing. Your case was complete miscarriage, so I think med certificate will be your proof. Include MAT1 form with letter explaining why you were not able to file MAT1 before miscarriage.

  568. Hi Nora. Need help please. I had a miacarriage last jan 24th. I took 3 PTs few days before i miscarried and all results were positive but i wasnt able to go to the doctor right away for an ultrasound because of work. And then came the 24th i bleed. I told the doctor what happened and found out that i was about 5 weeks pregnant and already miscarried. But the doctor didnt require me to have a D&C anymore. It was only after a week when my boss told me that i can file for sss maternity leave. I was not even able to submit my Mat1 form. I dont have any histopathology report given by the doctor. The only requirements i have are medcert and ob history form. Can i still file it? Thank you.

  569. Hi Claire, you go to your OB and have yourself checked up so you can get a medical certificate. Yes, the list of requirement for complete miscarriage includes ultrasound or pregnancy test before and after miscarriage. You can submit filled-up MAT1 plus letter explaining why you were not able to submit prior to miscarriage. Ask others too

  570. Hi mina, do you mean you checked Separated in your MAT2 form? If yes and you file on Monday, then wait for your check to be issued before you continue contributing. This is assuming that your claim will be processed within 2 months.
    If you continue to contribute, pay as Voluntary, not self-employed, because you were previously Employed. As soon as your Voluntary contribution is posted, your Employed status will be changed to Voluntary. This is the reason you should wait because your Separated status in your MAT2 form will conflict with your Voluntary status, when changed from Employed to Voluntary. But as soon as your check is issued, pay as Voluntary so you can be eligible for you next claim. You can make some predictions about your conception/pregnancy and eligibility using this table: Semester of Contingency

  571. Hi mina, I think if your D&C report and histopathology report are satisfactory, they will no longer require the after-D&C ultrasound. But it will depend on the SSS counter officer who will initially evaluate your claim.

  572. hi ms.nora, I had my check up Feb 4 and had my ultrasound result with early pregnancy of 7wks 6 days and no fetus pole appreciated. Then I had spotting. i was advised by the doctor for bed rest. feb 12 the bleeding got worse until something came out. It was a big mass of blood. Do I need to have another ultrasound to show that I had miscarriage and there’s no more baby? I have not filed Mat1. What should I do? I hope for your swift response.

  573. I am a separated member last oct 29 2014 and i’ll be submitting my maternity benefit claim for miscarriage on monday. We are planning to again have a baby. Do I need to wait for my claim for maternity benefits to be processed before I contribute as self employed to be able to get maternity benefits for my next baby? Thank you and God bless

  574. Thank you for the information and it help me a lot..After I had my d&c on jan. 9, I went back to my ob after 1 week for checkup, but I didn’t have ultrasound or pregnancy test. my documents is already complete. aside from ultrasound or pregnancy test. Do I need to have pregnancy test this feb to prove I’m no longer pregnant?

  575. Hi erica, if the gap between your date of separation/resignation from employment and date of delivery is less than 6 months, you need to submit Certification of separation, cert of non-advancement of maternity benefit and L501.

  576. Is is okay that I don’t submit a COE AND L501 as I’m the one paying?

  577. Hi.gudpm. ask ko lang po kung makaka claim ako ng maternity benefits kahit wala akong histopath report. I had a complete miscarriage and my ob told me na no need to undergo a D and C since nalabas na lahat,meds nalang. Should i file a maternity leave? By the way, 17days na ko di nakakapasok sa work since my first spotting, kanina lang lumabas sa ultrasound na clear na uterus ko. Thank u so much and hoping for a response. God bless u.

  578. Hi mina, yes, it’s best for you to change your civil status with SSS and wait for the change to be effected before filing your claim to prevent discrepancies. Register online so you can check if your status change is already posted. You’re right, your employer will likely refuse to use your married surname, as you were still single when you were with them. So it’s okay to have your maiden surname in your separation documents. Attach a copy of your marriage certificate to your separation documents to explain the surname difference. Include your filled-up MAT-1 with attached letter explaining why you were unable to submit it before miscarriage. God bless too

  579. Hi Karen, yes, miscarriage is also called spontaneous abortion. Yes, include a filled-up MAT-1 and a letter explaining why you were not able to submit MAT-1 before miscarriage. You seem to be able to complete your documents.
    Ask your OB about the 3 weeks and 3 days she wrote on your medical certificate and its effect on the no. of leave days that will be paid for by SSS. You might want to ask for more days, as you said you’ll be under observation for spotting.

  580. i did not file mat1 before my miscarriage and what will i do all documents that i have, ultrasound and d&c report is my married name.i had miscarriage this january 2015 and we got married on december 2014. do i need first change my marital status before filing mat2. And how about my separation documents from my last employer and L501,do i need to request from ny company to use my married name even if when I wS emploed last october is still single in marital status..thnkyou and i hope you can answer me…Godbless

  581. hello again, about MAT-1, i haven’t filed it before my miscarriage. on requirem number two, is it necessary to have stamped date too but after miscarriage? or I will just attach the explanation letter?

  582. thank u for this information because I had miscarriage too and raspa is no longer needed because my obstetrician wrote it on my medical certificate that I am in complete abortion and stated that curettage is no longer needed. I am wondering why it was stated abortion, is it really the medical term even for miscarriage?

    on numbr one, I have MAT 2 but I haven’t filed MAT 1 yet. I will file MAT 1 with eplaxation letter. on number two, I already have SSS I’d. For number three, I will ask my obstetrician for obstetrical history and H-mole with PRC license number, printee name and signature. For number five, I have pregnacy test report before and ultrasound that Im having miscarriage and ultrasound of complete miscarriage. is this ok for number five? For number six, yes I have, first medical certificate stated incomplete abortion and repeat of ultrasound on given date. I also have second medical certicate stated complete abortion and given rest days. is this ok?

    in total, I was given 3 weeks and 3 days for my rest day. I’m still on leave. it was only started January 27, 2015. I’m still under observation for spotting and it is also stated on 2nd medical certificate.

    hope to hear from you soon… as soon as possible…

    thank you

  583. Hi aileen, if your SSS records show at least 3 contributions within Oct 2013 to Sep 2014, you’re eligible for maternity benefit.
    About Philhealth, there’s coverage for D&C, and you should have filed your Philhealth before discharge so your coverage was deducted from your bill. But you can file an appeal with Philhealth, if you can get claim forms, waiver and hospital payment OR from your hospital.

  584. Hi ms nora, can I avail of sss benefits. Last contribution of my company is May 2014. then in my new work, I don’t have sss then jan 5 I got pregnant. was 2 months on jan 20. miscarried at 2 months. But I have all docs and transvi. Now I’m on bedrest for 2weeks because I had D&C jan 25,2015. Can I claim benefits from sss or and philhealth. What should I do? Thanks and Godbless you

  585. Hi Ms.Nora Thank you very much for your prompt reply.I’m trying to contact the no. you gave and e mailed already.Hope they will reply because we are living here in Penang malaysia.
    Again thank you very much.

  586. Hi Janete, yes, you’re eligible even if you’re abroad if you’ve paid the required contributions. If you had your miscarriage this Jan 2015, you should have at least 3 monthly contributions within Oct 2013 to Sep 2014. Yes, your documents should be certified by the Philippine consulate there, or the SSS officer there (if there’s an SSS office). Are you in Malaysia? I checked and there’s an SSS office there in Malaysia. No. 1 Jalan Changkat Kia Peng, 50450 Kuala Lumpur, Mobile No. (601)-787-01944 Email: Representative: Ranulfo B. Tanquezon.

  587. Hi Christy, have you paid for at least 3 months within July 2013 to June 2014? If no, sorry, you’re not eligible for maternity benefit. Ask others too.

  588. Christy Marie Quino

    Hi ms. Nora, I had miscarriage last Dec. 20, 2014. But I’ve just started my SSS, been a member for less than 6 months. can I get something from SSS? I’m on maternity leave now.

  589. Hi Ms. Nora, have a good day.Im here abroad and got miscarriage on our first baby.Can I claim my sss miscarriage benefit even if Im here abroad. I paid my contributions up to dec 31, 2014.I have already my clinical abstract from the hospital and a certificate from my obgyne. Should I need to send to the consul for certification or red ribbon in the philippines before filling to sss philippines. Please help.Thank you. best regards, janette

  590. Hi lorie, did they write D&C in the medical certificate? Many lying-in clinics are not authorized to do D&C — this may be the reason why they don’t like to issue a report. But I think the clinic can use the emergency-case reason, specially if you’re far from any other medical facility. Ask SSS if your medical certificate is enough since your had your “emergency” D&C at a clinic.

  591. i already have medical certificate, i had a d&c on a lying in clinic and as per them they don’t have said d&c report

  592. Thanks ms.nora..

  593. Hi ms nora. I had a miscarriage i bleed jan 7 and had my check up ultrasound on jan 8..the doctor diagnose that theres no more baby anymore but i had a retained placenta and need to undergo raspa. For now i still did not because the d and c operation was too expensive maybe tom will be schedule. Can i file my claim at sss even though my data is incomplete? I have no nso authenticated birthcertificate.

  594. Hi lorie, try requesting for a medical certificate. Or you can file with all the documents that you have and wait for what the SSS officer will say.

  595. Hi blessed, yes, as long as you have all the required documents. Prepare an answer to why you’re filing only now.

  596. Can i claim maternity benefit for miscarriage even if it was back in 2012 that I had D&C?

  597. Good day Ms. Nora, is it okay if i don’t have D&C report, and only histopath report, thanks

  598. Hi nora. My friend had a miscarriage 2 days ago and did not undergo d&c. She wasnt able to file the Mat-1 and theres no ultrasound prior to the miscarriage and she misplaced her PT.But she has a med cert from the doctor and ultrasound report after the miscarriage. Would that be sufficient to claim her maternity benefits?

  599. thank you po ms.nora ..

  600. Hi joy, yes, the maternity benefit is payment for the no. of days you missed your work (no. of leave days). You can talk with your HR about what to do. You can also ask your OB to change the no. of days she wrote on your medical certificate, and explain your reasons. Make sure you have all the documents required for complete miscarriage.

  601. Hi dhesery, the maternity benefit is payment for missed days of work, so if you took a leave for only 1 week, SSS will pay for only 1 week. But this is my first time to know of someone who miscarried and was given only 1 week of leave. What I’ve read is about some members who were not given a benefit for miscarriage because they did not take a leave. Might add to this if I come across something relevant.

  602. hi ms. nora i miscarried dec. 31. i had check up jan.2 and no longer had D&C because my ultrasound was already normal. I thought miscarriage is not covered by sss so i requested to rest for only 3 days, as I didn’t undergo D&C raspa. will this affect my claim from sss?

  603. Hi. Does the maternity benefits depend on the medical certificate? If leave from work is only 1 week, SSS will pay for only 1 week?

  604. Hi Kristina, did she submit a complete set of documents? Does she have an acknowledgment stub? Because if she submitted a MAT2 claim, she needs to wait for her rejected documents and then re-file. It’s not good if she has 2 pending claims with SSS for the same benefit. But if she did not file, yes, she can file a MAT2 claim. I updated the list of requirements of above. Check the requirements again. Your sister can file in Alabang, if it’s nearer.

  605. Hello Gooday, my sister had miscarriage last August 2014. she returned many times to SSS because they needed a lot of requirements, like signed paper from Physician. she traveled from Cavite To Cubao until she got tired and she wasn’t able to claim her benefits. Can she still file her claim? thank you and more power

  606. Hi rommelsunio, if your wife is giving birth in April 2015 or onwards, you can pay this Dec for Oct to Dec 2014 so she’ll qualify.

  607. Hi, what if we haven’t paid sss contributions for a long time. what should we do so my wife can claim her maternity benefit?

  608. Hi Mary Grace, a pregnancy certification from your OB can substitute for ultrasound report. But if you have the histopathology or D&C report and a medical certificate, I think you have a good chance of getting your claim. Based on comments that I get, SSS puts importance on the histopathology report.

  609. May I ask, i just had a miscarriage last dec.1 but i don’t have my ultrasound before miscarriage,,but other than that all the documents are present.. Is there a hope I can make a claim?

  610. Thank you so much, Ms. Nora! Will email SSS singapore to confirm.

    God Bless!

  611. Hi Gracey, you can only pay contributions and get SSS forms at Lucky Plaza. The website of the Philippine embassy in Singapore mentions only SSS membership so email and ask if they’re accepting maternity benefit claims. If not, you can file your claim later in the Philippines, anyway, you have 10 years to file, but of course, file your claim the soonest time possible. Keep your ultrasound, D&C and other medical documents. You can file your MAT1 online, if your member status has changed to Voluntary or OFW.

  612. Hi Marge, try to file. SSS really requires the histopathology or D and C report for miscarriage, but you have the ultrasound reports before and after and the medical certificate, so these documents will help you. File as soon as you can. Ask the SSS officer if you need to make a letter or affidavit regarding your miscarriage at home.

  613. May I ask. I just had a miscarriage, I got ultrasound before and after miscarriage as well as medical certificates to prove. My problem is the Histopath and DnC since the miscarriage happened at home. The ’tissue’ fell into the toilet and since it was my first time, I was not sure if that was the tissue because there was a lot of blood mass. After that, I had an ultrasound which showed a clear complete miscarriage and no need for DnC. Is there hope I can make a claim?

  614. Hi Ms. Nora, good morning! I had a miscarriage and undergone D&C procedure yesterday, November 25. I haven’t passed my MAT1 form yet because I only confirmed that I was pregnant last Nov. 08. Can I just submit my MAT1 and MAT2 forms together to avail the SSS Maternity Benefit? I had a total of 79 contributions (from July 2007 to Feb 2014) as an employed member. And upon checking my SSS account online, I am still qualified for the maternity benefit claim. I was separated from my employer last March 2014 and was not able to continue my contributions until this month (Nov 2014). I am currently staying in Singapore since March 2014. Can I pass my MAT1 and MAT2 forms at the SSS Branch at Lucky Plaza? Thank you and hoping I can get a reply.

  615. Hi Jorie, thanks a lot for being very considerate and understanding.

  616. Hello Ma’am, my SSS is okay. Went to SSS office; you might be too busy so you have not replied until now. Next time in case I have a question. Thanks

  617. Hello po,Ma’am ask ko lang po kung kapag ba hindi na naghuhulog ng contribution kasi wala ng work ibig po ba sabihin hindi na makaka-avail ng benifits example po maternity benifits?

    Ano po ang pwdeng gawin para maka-avail kasi po 1996 to 2009 ang aking SSS contribution.

    Thank’s po.

  618. Hi Marnie, in some cases, the histopathology report is enough, especially that she is an employee. She can talk with her HR that she can sign an agreement that she will return her advance maternity benefit if SSS disapproves her claim, or she can ask her HR if she can go to SSS and ask for a note saying that the histopathology report and the other documents are enough.

  619. Hi Erlinda, SSS requires proof that you were pregnant and that you miscarried. If you have a D&C report or medical certificate or a histopathology report, then I think SSS might consider even if you did not have an ultrasound prior to miscarriage.

  620. Hi Cristina, did you pay at least 3 contributions within July 2013 to June 2014? If not, sorry you cannot qualify for maternity benefit.

  621. Hi! I have a friend who had a miscarriage. She was able to produce the medcert and histopath but not the D&C report because she said it was not done to her. She has approved/file Mat-1 but her company is not advancing the claim to her because they are requiring her the D&C report. I am also in HR and once we have the filed Mat-1, we usually compute for the claim and advancing it before the delivery or if its miscarriage. Will they have a problem reimbursing the claim to SSS? Thanks:)

  622. Good Morning Ms. Nora.
    Can I still avail the benefit b/c my requirement is incomplete I don’t have the ultrasound before and after pregnancy, so with the pregnancy test after miscarriage. Because actually I’m not aware at first that I am pregnant b/c I’m used to have a delayed menstruation.When I already have the feeling that I’m pregnant I suppose to have my check up on the 23rd of Oct. but miscarriage happened on the 22nd of the same month.

  623. Good day Maam, i’ve been scheduled to undergo D&C by next week. I’m an active member since 2000 and i stopped my contribution last 2008 because I worked abroad. Can i file MAT1?

  624. Good day Ms. Nora..Thank you po sa information tungkol sa SSS Eligible dahil po dun cheneck ko po yung files namin simula nung kinaltasan ako ng para sa SSS Contri.-February’14 nakaindicate po dun na para sa January’14 yung kinaltas po sakin..Pwede na po ba ako magfile ng maternity benefits kahit hindi po ako nagpasa ng MAT1???hanggang kalian po pwede magfile ng maternity benefits kung nakunan po ako ng Sept.16’14???Magkano naman po makukuha ko kung nakafix po sahod ko ng 10,500.00 per month???
    Salamat po.

  625. Hi Shayne, yes, you can claim even after a year, but SSS will require your histopathology or D&C report. In some cases, I think they accept medical certificates from your ob-gyne. And if you were employed that time, you should have taken a leave. You can go to SSS, and ask what documents you can submit if you don’t have D&C or histopathology report.

  626. Hi Ms Nora. I had a miscarriage last year novembr and never filed for mat2 since i dint know miscarriages can be claimed too. Just found out today that I can claim it. I never had a d&c. I just have the sonographuc report. Is it possible to still claim after almost a year? And with no d&c reprt?

  627. Hi claire, yes, you can file again, as long as this is not your 5th or 6th pregnancy or subsequent pregnancy, and you have the required documents including histopathology or D&C report.

  628. Hi! I had a miscarriage last June and was able to avail the SSS benefit. Then i got pregnant again this sept and unfortunately had another miscarriage yesterday. May i know if i can still het another SSS benefit? Thanks.

  629. Hi eliza, sorry but I think you are not eligible yet. Because SSS will look for at least 3 contributions within Apr 2013 to March 2014. Since you just started in Feb, you have only 2 contributions within the 12-month period. This will help you check your SSS eligibility. But ask others too or you can go to SSS and file your MAT1 and wait for what they will say, to be sure. By the way, are you employed? If self-employed, did you file RS1 with SSS before you paid?

  630. Hi letlet, yes, you can again claim, if this is your 2nd or 3rd or 4th pregnancy, and not your 5th or 6th pregnancy and so on, and as long as your documents are complete.

  631. hi ms. nora, i started contributing feb 2014 till now. I had miscarriage last sept.16’14. I have my medical certificate and obstetrical history. I have not filed MAT1. Can i file for maternity benefits even if some months have passed? For the other requirements, the hospital said i need to ask for request form from SSS.

  632. hi, i had a miscarriage last july2014 and already claimed sss maternity benifit then i got pregnant again after a month and another miscarriage this october2014. can i still claim maternity benifit?

  633. Hi Cathie, some SSS officers accept the D&C report as replacement for histopathology report, specially if the member is employed. No, you cannot file for sickness benefit for your miscarriage if you’re claiming maternity benefit. The maternity benefit is a payment for maternity leave so you should be on leave. But talk to your HR about SSS policy and their policy regarding this. Ask others too

  634. Hi, I had a miscarriage last week and did undergo d&c i was 5 weeks pregnant then. I ddnt opt for histopath since its expensive. Is it ok if I only submit d&c report and ultrasound to my employer? Can i also avail sickness benefit to sss? Is it also mandatory to be on maternity leave for a month? I have to return to work asap since im the bread winner of my family. Thanks!

  635. Hi rhen, sorry you’re already late in re-starting to pay. You should have paid back in Apr to Sep 2014. You can no longer pay for those months, unless you’re an OFW and you have proof of being an OFW. Ask others too. You can avail of the SSS maternity benefit for your first 4 pregnancies.

  636. Hi ms. Nora..
    Just want to ask if im still eligible for maternity benefit..I stop paying since April 2011 and continue as voluntary member this Oct. 2014,.I’m pregnant now and expected due date on January 2015..can I still avail this even though its my 2nd pregnancy?thanks

  637. Hi Genevie, that’s good that you were registered as employed. That means your SSS membership is valid. You do not need an RS form because you’re already registered by your employer.

  638. No ma’am.. I was registered as employed before paying. I don’t have SSS-stamped-approved RS form

  639. Hi Genevie, did you register as self-employed before paying? Do you have an SSS-stamped-approved RS1 form? You must register using RS1 form before paying. About your eligibility: sad to say, you might not qualify. Your semester of contingency is Oct 2014 to Mar 2015. SSS will look for at least 3 contributions within Oct 2013 to Sep 2014. Ask others too

  640. Hi ms. Nora. my SSS number is temporary but i’m paying contributions since august until now. as of now i’m putting my docs in order so my SSS number becomes permanent. i’m 5 months pregnant now and my due date is feb. am i eligible for maternity benefit once i fix my SSS number before my due date? thank you and more power..

  641. Hi Rowena, did you file your MAT1? Try filing. Documents: MAT1 form, letter of explanation why you were not able to file your MAT1 earlier, medical certificate and discharge papers from the hospital (with English translation if Arabic), obstetrical history, MAT 2 form, ultrasound report before and after miscarriage. Plus SSS ID or if none, 2 valid photo IDs (xerox). And then pray that your claim will be approved.

  642. Hi maam.. i had miscarriage and did a d&c but no histopathology report.. im an ofw working in kuwait.. is there any chance i can avail my benefit from sss? I am actively paying my sss contribution for 3 yrs now up to present..

  643. Hi kiray, you should have paid for at least 3 months within July 2013 to June 2014.

  644. From what month should we have paid contributions so we can claim benefits? if dec 2014 due? thanks

  645. Hi Gege, it’s indeed frustrating that the SSS website is still not fully functioning. I hope your clinical abstract will be adequate. Your being an employed member is one advantage, I think. If the online inquiry page is still down around 3rd week of Oct, you can go to SSS branch and inquire.

  646. Hi kiray, sorry there are payment deadlines. You can no longer pay for Jan to June. Only OFW members are allowed to pay those months. Ask others too.

  647. Hello again, Ms. Nora! I just found out that the HR department submitted the reqs 3rd week of September and they told us that “it is being processed” but then however, we don’t have the DnC Report and Hispathology report, but the clinical abstract was submitted and it was accepted. Do you think it is being processed or what? Cause I was checking everything on their website and seems to be that the website is down like a year ago. Thanks for continuously answering every questions that we have. You’re a HUGE help!

  648. Ms.nora. dec is my due date. can i pay my contributions for past months? so i can claim benefits? thanks

  649. Hi michelle, it’s sad that SSS is strict with histopathology or D&C report for miscarriage cases, and that this is impossible for miscarriage cases like yours. SSS wants proof of pregnancy and miscarriage. I’m not sure, so before you spend on docs, it’s best to go to the nearest SSS branch and ask if you can file without D&C report, and just submit ultrasound before and after and medical certificates from your ob.

  650. hi ms.nora. can i claim my sss maternity benefit even i don’t have d and c report? in my case, it was a natural miscarriage, so i did not under go d and c. Will SSS approve such case? thank you

  651. Hi Kasei, do you mean SSS maternity benefit? If yes, sorry, this benefit is only for women members of SSS. Is your wife an SSS member? Then she can claim if she has paid the required months and no. of months. Ask your HR about the 7-day paternity leave.

  652. Hi Gege, sorry you cannot claim if your documents are not complete. SSS is very strict about the histopathology report or D&C report, based on comments in our SSS blog. Talk with the HR about the docs available and how you can file with those docs. God bless too.

  653. Hi ms nora, may I ask how to avail of maternity benefit as I haven’t registered her as my dependent wife. She gave birth oct 5,2014. I have contributions from jan to may. Thanks

  654. Hello Ma’am.

    I just wanna ask something. My girlfriend had miscarriage on our 1st baby. We went to Medical City for check up 1 week after the miscarriage. And then we filed the Maternity Benefit to SSS through the HR but then we don’t have the hispathology report, D&C Report and Clinical Abstract because she was checked 1 week after the misC. But we have 3 ultra sounds, and some documents signed by our OB(the history upon checking up) and documents from Med City.

    Question :
    1. Can we still avail the maternity benefit because from Aug 25th up to now she’s still on leave?
    2. And how long would it take?

    I was wondering cause the HR kept on asking about the reports but then I just told em there was no procedures done to her. Please answer thank you So much! God bless.

  655. Hi rollyn, SSS will look for your 6 highest contributions/salary credits within Jul 2013 to Jun 2014. You only have 5 contributions within this period, so SSS will compute using only these 5 contributions.

  656. ms.Nora gud day! it’s me again. . if i may ask, how the computation would be if i only had a contributions since august2012-december2012 and august2013-january2014 and july2014-september2014?
    thanks for the reply ms.nora, that’s a big help. .

  657. Hi rollyn, yes, you’re eligible for maternity benefit even if your July-Sep contributions were not yet remitted. I hope you got a histopathology report or a D&C report. Here are the documents required: The advantage of filing your claim after Sep 22 (as Voluntary) is that the check will be delivered to your address. But you need to ask your employer for cert of separation, non-advancement of maternity benefit and L501. But there might also be an advantage if you file asap through your employer. Ask around. If you file as Voluntary, include a letter explaining why you were not able to file your MAT1 before miscarriage.

  658. ms nora gud am po, ask ko lng po if i am eligible to claim my maternity benefits when i got my miscarriage just this sept 9 2014, and will be finished on my job this coming sept 22 ? our accounting dept sed that they haven’t still remittted my contributions of july up to present but i had my contributions from august 2013-january 2014?hope u can giv me knowledge about my case .thankyou…

  659. Hi josephine, you have up to 10 years to file your claim. But of course, file as soon as you have completed your papers.

  660. Hi mam, within how many months can I file my miscarriage claim? I had my miscarriage on aug 2. Am still preparing my documents as required by sss.

  661. Hi gwen, that’s great! Thanks for coming back to share your good news and share helpful info. I’m glad your employer is complying with SSS policies. Thanks for appreciating my blog — it means a lot. Take care

  662. Hi Ms. Nora.. I would just like to give you the updates of what I’ve been through since your blog helped me and educated me in all possible ways. Heres my story:
    June-I had a miscarriage and havent filed MAT1.
    July 9- had my d&c
    July 27- submitted my MAT2 & MAT1 altogether
    Aug17- I emailed our HR partner and asked if Im still eligible for the said mat benefit.
    Aug20- here’s what our HR partner replied
    “Please take note that employees who had miscarriage need not to submit MAT1 and benefits will be credited to employees payroll”
    Aug27- checked my online account. amount has been credited, ! 🙂 yey!
    Thanks so much Miss Nora, kung hindi dahil sa blog mo hindi ko malalaman na may mga benefits ako.

  663. Hi Chephia, you’re already eligible for maternity benefit. File your MAT1 asap. Since the gap between your separation date and delivery date is about 6 months, you might be required to submit a cert of separation with date of separation, L501 form and cert of non-advancement of maternity benefit from your former employer. Ask others too. Register at so you can track your records

  664. Hello Ms. Nora.. I’m on my 5th month of pregnancy. 01-08-15 is my expected due date. I had been contributing for 13 mos already. my last contribution was this June 2014 . and I already resigned. should I continue my contribution so I can avail of my maternity benefits ko? thank you.

  665. Hi gwen, if your company is not yet enrolled in the SMBP program, your check will be in your name and will be delivered to your employer’s address within 3 weeks to 2 months. If denied, wait for your documents to be returned (you’ll see reason for denial and instructions), and then file again through your employer. All employed members are required to file through their employers.
    Your employer should advance your maternity benefit within 30 days of filing your leave, specially if they see that your documents are valid. Although required by SSS, some employers are afraid of advancing the benefit for fear of not getting back their money in case the claim is denied and the employee goes awol. But if you’ve been a regular employee for some time, they should give you your advance since they can hold your separation pay, just in case.

  666. Hi Ms.Nora, just wanna share my experience. I had a miscarriage June 15 and I wasn’t able to file for my MAT1 since this is my 1st pregnancy I am not fully aware of the process. I tried to report for work July1 but our HR partner informed me that I need to be on ML since I haven’t had the d&c procedure. She gave me SSS forms that’s MAT2 and MAT1. July 9 nagpa d&c po ako. At nakumpleto lahat ng required docs. Pano po kaya ang reimbursement process pag miscarriage? Binibigay na po ba yung buong amount? Check po ba ito o employer ko muna magbibigay? Kasi ang worry ko ay hindi ako magkaron ng sweldo dahil 2mos nga akong pinagleave, at hindi sila familiar sa case katulad ng sakin? Pag po ba nadecline ito, pwede ko bang kunin yung mga docs na sinubmit ko at ako na lang mismo ang magasikaso sa servicing branch? I already tried calling sss hotline pero ang hirap makapasok sa line nila. Already tried sending email but to no avail.

  667. Hi Meng, she should have paid at least 3 contributions within July 2013 to June 2014. If the last digit of her SSS no. is 9 or 0, she can pay for Apr May June 2014 on July 31 (not later) so she can avail.

  668. Hi, yung friend ko po. Makakaavail pba xa ng maternity benefits ?
    Oct 10 ang due date nya. Pero 2yrs xang stop sa pghulog, at meron na xang 56 na hulog na. Mkkaavail p po b xa ?

  669. Hi Ranie, she should file her MAT1 with SSS asap and then pay her Aug to Sep 2014 or July to Sep 2014 contributions.

  670. Ranie Cristo Juntilano

    Tnong q lng po kc po ung hipag q po mangangank ng January 2015 last hulog nia po ay january 2014, mkkpag avail po b xia ng maternity benefits..? Ano po b ang dpat niang gwin pra pi mkpg avail xia..,?

  671. My ultrasound last July 4 revealed that there is a gestational sac. However, last July 17, there was no sac or heartbeat meaning the it was a miscarriage. Will I still be able to file for this? The OB said I didn’t need to undergo D&C since it was a complete abortion. Thank you

  672. thanks for replying Ms.Nora, I’ll have my d&c schedule this week and will give updates afterwards.

  673. Hi gwen, I think so, as long as your doctor/hospital can give you your D&C report, histopathology report, obstetrical history, and if employed, you took your leave.

  674. Hi Ms. Nora, i have the same case.ok lang po ba na magpa-d&c kahit mga 2-3weeks after makunan? wala pa kasi akong cash that time para magpad&c. makakaapekto kaya to if ever magprocess ako ng claim? Thankyou!

  675. Hi wendy, based on comments on our other blogs, SSS requires the histopathology report. It really is difficult to claim for members who miscarry at home and then do not undergo D&C because they don’t have this histopathology report. Later on when you’re stronger, you can go to SSS and ask.

  676. hi ms. nora.. sana po matulungan moko sa case ko. i had a trans v ultrasound last may23, i was pregnant and last june 15 i had a miscarriage.. hindi po ako nakapag file agad ng mat1 kasi hindi ko na sya naasikaso dahil sa hirap ng pagbubuntis ko.. sa bahay ako nagmiscarriage at hindi naman ako na d&c. pero meron akong med cert from my ob about what happened.. sa mga nabasa ko po kailangan ng histopath and certified true copy of d&c para makapag claim.. pano po kaya ang gagawin ko sa case ko? THANK YOU!!

  677. Hi Yhanzky, if you went to a clinic or hospital after you miscarried and had a histopathology report and medical certificate, then you can prove to SSS that you were pregnant and that you miscarried

  678. I had a miscarriage on my 5th wk.i didntknow i was pregnant. I dont have prenatal check up.can i still get maternity benefit?

  679. Hi Roxanne, for your MAT2 fling after delivery, you might still be required to submit cert of separation, cert of non-advancement of maternity benefit and L501. Have you filed your MAT1? Must be before delivery.

  680. Sa oct po ang due date ko ..

  681. Hi mam ask ko lang kung ano mga needs na documents to file maternity sa case ko kasi april natapos contract ko nag voluntry payment ako ng may and june.

  682. Hi summer, ask your HR kung ano ang dapat gawin, kasi ang alam ko, kung full 60 days ang babayaran ng SSS, dapat naka-leave ka for 60 days. Pero merong employer na sila ang gumagawa ng paraan o nag-a-advise if you should extend your leave.

  683. hello ms. nora,

    i had miscarriaged po last 1st week of May. yung mat1 ko po is nafile na kahapon May 19. i have all the requirements po (med cert, d&c report, ultrasounds before and after). inadvise po ako ng dra. ko to take bed rest for 2 weeks. gusto ko lang po malaman if yung maternity/miscarriage benefit ba na makukuha ko is equivalent lang po sa 2 weeks na leave ko? as of now po kasi is pumasok na ko sa work ko.

    Hope to from you the soonest Ms. Nora- thanks

  684. Hi Merl, sorry ngayon lang ako nag-login sa blog na ito. Sad to say, walang ibang paraan kundi you wait for your check to be delivered to your address by the postman, or puede rin sa post office kung papayag ang postman. I hope yours will be delivered faster, pero one month or more na ngayong nadedeliver ang check based sa mga nagco-comment.

  685. need ko na po kasi gawa ng agaw buhay po yung baby ko sa ospital ngayon, please kindly reply po.

  686. Ask ko lang po, last march 26th pa naprocess yung maternity ko, meron na check, kelan ko po makukuha kasi wala pa sa post office. thank you.

  687. Hi joy, baka merong copy o document yong hospital o clinic where you had your PT and ultrasound. Pag wala, ask SSS if you can submit a cert from your OB that she has examined you on __ and that you were pregnant for __ weeks.

  688. anu po pwede kong gawin kasi incomplete po requirements na pinapapasa sakin ng sss to claim maternity benefits,nakunan po ako last Feb 17 2014 at nag file po ako sa employer ko last Feb 20 pa..kasu ndi daw po ma e file sa sss kasi kailangan ung PT at ultrasound before ..ung buhay pa yong baby..wala po aku nun kasi po tnapon ko na ung PT at hndi po ako nakapag paultrasound that time..ang meron lang p ako ay ung ultrasound before ako e raspa.pls help.tnx po

  689. Hi JEs, dati within 1 to 2 weeks nadedeliver na ang check. These past months, inaabot na ng 1 month.

  690. Good Morning.. Mam, ask ko lang po kung gaano po ba katagal mareceive ung reimbursment galing SSS or ung cheque.. actualy na settle napo ng employer ko last march 12, 2014. nakita ko na din sa may SSS account ko na settled na tas my nakalagay ng amount at cheque num., but until now hindi pa dumating ung chque.. I realy need it na kc kaya na worried ako. salamat po..

  691. Hi erika, you request your histopathology report from the hospital where you were treated.

  692. Hi. Where can I get the histopathology report? Yun kasi kulang ko sabi ng sss. Thanks. Please reply sa email add ko.

  693. Hi po. Nagmiscarriage po ako ng sept 2013, pero yung mga requirements ko po for miscarriage in SSS was incomplete, hindi po kasi dinala sa hospital cause at the same time i’m going to school that time. Actually, I have the medical certificate of the Borough Clinic in MOA, Pasay City and medical certificate of the ob-gyne, I also have ultrasound and also i have a MAT forms, I’m employed. The company payroll said that the medical certificate needs to be sealed. Can I the benefits if the requirements is incomplete? Thank you.

  694. Hi arlene, you need to complete the required docs. I hope you have your pregnancy ultrasound and your second ultrasound (no more fetal heartbeat). You can bring all available docs that you have to SSS and then ask if you can write a letter explaining the reason why you cannot submit a histopathology report (that you were given meds by your OB to expel the dead fetal mass).

  695. hi po, i had completed abortion po recently, nun po makita sa ultrasound na wala na fetal heartbeat, i was given medication that will help me expel everything, i wasn’t advised to collect specimen for histopath. wla po ako ma-submit na histopth report kasi po hindi na ako dinudugo. meron lang po ako certification from my ob stating na she gave me medications and had completed abortion eventually, will i be able to claim maternity benefit?

  696. Hi Jane, dapat yong payments within Oct 2012 to Sep 2013. 2 months lang meron ka, so alam ko hindi eligible. Pero magtanong ka rin sa iba pa

  697. May 5 contributions lang po kasi ako march, april 2013 and jan, feb, march 2014 macoconsider po kya nila yung contributions ko sa computation ng maternity benefit ko?

  698. Hi Jane, meron ka bang at least 3 contributions within Oct 2012 to Sep 2013? Kung meron, you’re eligible. Puedeng maconsider ang case mo kahit you failed to file your MAT1, as you had abortion. Fill up MAT1 and then attach a letter explaining you were not able to file MAT1 because when you were about to file, you had miscarriage. Your Feb and Mar 2014 contributions are not counted for this benefit.

  699. Hi maam Nora tanong ko lang if icoconsider ng sss ung maternity benefit ko. I had a missed abortion today kaya lang po hindi ako nakapag notify sa sss since ngayon lang po ako nakapagpa check up. And one more thing mabibilang din po ba yung contributions na inadvance ko ng february and march 2014… Supposed to be po kasi september po sana ang due date ko… Hoping for your reply thank you.

  700. Hi Jessa, yes, you can file your claim — include in your claim a letter to SSS explaining that you were not able to file your MAT1 earlier because when you were about to file your MAT1, you had miscarriage. I-attach mo ang letter na ito sa MAT1 form. Antaying mo yong histopath mo para complete documents, kahit 1 month pa; dapat complete docs para hindi ma-deny.

  701. Hi miss nora, tanong lang po ako kc nag pa ulrasound pod aq ng Jan.5,2014 sa ibang DR. hindi kc inecplaine sa akin kung anu nakalagay don, ang sabi lang ibigay q sa OB. kung saan ako unang nag pa chek-up, taz nong Jan.22. pa po ako pumunta ng ospital para ipabsa ung Transvaginal Result, un pala miscarriage/Miss abortion na pala ung bby wala dw heartbet, so possible po bang ma process ung benefit q kahit wla pa yung Histopath report 1mon.pakc makuha.pero completo napo aq sa ibang documents, taz isa pang probz q hindi aq nakapag notify sa sss. hindi naka file ng mat1. tnx..

  702. Hi maricar, mag-file ka ng claim kapag meron ka nang time at kung meron ka nang birth cert from NSO or from local civil registrar. You have 10 years to file your MAT2 claim pero siempre hindi mo na paabutin ng years.

  703. good pm po ms.nora i just want to ask about maternity reimbursement, kailan ko pwede i-file to after giving birth ? im giving birth this coming February 6, 2014 … kailan ko po pwede i-file ang mAT 2 ko ? my period time po ba? or any time basta makumpleto ko yung requirements na pinapapasa sakin during i file my MAT1 ?

  704. Hi janice, yes, merong maternity benefit kahit merong salary loan, pero kung hindi ka updated sa salary loan mo, ibabawas yong unpaid balance sa benefit, kaya dapat i-update mo ang pagbayad ng loan mo. Ito kung paano i-check if you’re qualified for the maternity benefit:

  705. ask ko lng po dec.21,2013 po ung resignation ko from my company kpag po b ngbuntis ako makakakuha p ko ng maternity benefits kahit my loan pa ko? thank u

  706. Hi marife, it’s good you’ve filed your MAT1. Puede namang outpatient; just get a report of what happened or what they did to you when you were there at the hospital. Or magpa-checkup and then get a medical report from your OB (the one with whom you had your ultrasound). Kelangan kasi ng SSS ng proof that you were really pregnant and that you really miscarried.

  707. ask ko lng po kng out patient po ba na miscarriage can avail maternity benefit dapt dw po kc 24 hours admitted bago cla bgay ang hospital ng d and c report po…nkapag file npo ako ng mat1 tnx po…..

  708. Hi Mary, ang alam ko kapag miscarriage, kinoconsider nila ang hindi pag-submit ng MAT1 before the miscarriage, basta ma-submit mo lahat ng docs. Nasa list above ang docs required. Isama mo pa rin yong MAT1 and ultrasound report.

  709. HI, just want to ask lang po sana. I was not able to fill up the MAT1 yet unfortunately, i had a Miscarriage. two months plang po kasi baby ko. and yun din yung first time n nagpacheck up ako. Am i still eligible to file a claim and what po yung mga documents na require? thanks po

  710. Hi sheena, you need to get from your former employer these: cert of separation with date of separation, 2 sheets of L501 form and cert of non-advancement of maternity benefits. Why? Because your miscarriage is within 6 months of your separation date.

  711. Hi. I had a work from aug 26 to Oct 4 was the last, I submitted my resignation letter to the company. And I don’t have any separation letter from them. Can I still be qualified to claim maternity benefits(miscarriage) from SSS? I need to go back to my OB on dec 21 for my second ultrasound. I had a incomplete abortion. Thank you! Hope you can help me.

  712. Hi yemmy, file your MAT1 asap. But in case, there was a miscarriage, and you have proof that you were pregnant and proof that you miscarried and you’re eligible and you’re able to complete the required documents, I think SSS will give you your maternity benefit even if you were not able to file your MAT1 before miscarriage.

  713. Hi. I had a bleeding and im on my 4th month of my pregnancy, the thing here is i havent file my mat 1 at sss. i already resigned from my work. can i still claim my maternity benefit if i havent file my mat1. what do i need to do..i still need to have my 1st ultrasound on monday and that would be the time i would know what is the condition of my pregnancy. thanks and hope you can enlighten me.

  714. Hi Sherly, kung meron kang at least 3 contributions from July 2012 to June 2013, you’re eligible. I think kino-consider nila ang hindi mo pa pagpass ng MAT1 kasi nag-miscarriage ka nga.

  715. Good day, ask ko lang po, nakunan po ako nitong November 30, 2013. unemployed po ako since january 2013 up to present, pero may total of 80 contributions na po ako , ang last hulog ko po ay December 2012. entitled pa din po ba ako for maternity benefit? hindi po ako nakapagfile ng MAT1 ko, kasi almost 3months po ako nakunan na po ako… Thank you.

  716. Hi reca, pay your SSS contribution for Oct Nov Dec 2013 asap, so you can avail, kahit half na lang ang makukuha mo. Taasan mo ng by 2 brackets yong highest contribution mo in 2011. Yes, kahit single, you can avail basta meron kang 3 contributions within 2013. Kung meron ka sanang 6 months, mas okay, pero meron kasing payment deadlines, so 3 months na lang ang puede mong bayaran. Have your MAT1 stamped. Register in online SSS so you can check your records.

  717. hello po Ma’am nora,pwde pa po bang maka-avail ng maternity benifits pag single mom? ang last contribution ko po sa sss ay nung last May 2011 pa po nung nagwowork pa ako. anu po ang pwde kung gawin para maka-avail ako ng Maternity benifits sa SSS. due date ko po sa May 2014. Sana po ay matulungan nyo ako. Maraming salamat po.

  718. Hi maricar, have you filed your MAT1? You will need to file this before delivery. Yong ibang documents, after delivery na. You can file MAT1 through your online SSS account. Anong form daw yong E-5? Wala akong makitang E-5? E-4 ba, which is change of data? Are you separated from your employer? If yes, baka L501?

  719. i am filing my maternity reimbursement but one of the requirements is sss form e-5.i cant download this form can you please send me one on my email since i cant travel to olongapo now that my due is this month..thanks
