  6. Hi Luchie, yes, he can apply for Direct Deposit of his pension at BPI, BDO, PNB or Metrobank. These banks have Direct Deposit accounts for US pensioners in the Philippines. He can apply when he arrives here in the Philippines, or if he is near a PNB office in the US, he can start applying there. Where does he live in the US so I can check if he is near a PNB office?

  7. My husband is a US citizen..and he is a pensoiner in there state..if ever he will apply for Recidency here in Philippines..can he still get his pension here in Phil?

  8. Hi Nora
    My mom is also a former Filipino (not natural born Filipino), can she claim death benefit as my dad has been an SSS pensioner?

  9. Hi Nora
    I’m a former Filipino (not natural born Filipino) who had contributed to SSS for 10 years and moved to Canada and is now a citizen of Canada, am I eligible to get SSS retirement benefit?

  10. Hi Digna, if you live near San Francisco, SSS has a branch at the Philippine Consulate there, and you can file there. This is the address:
    Philippine Consulate General
    447 Sutter Street, 7th Floor, Suite 701
    San Francisco, California, USA 94108
    Email: marinmc@sss.gov.ph
    Representative: Marites C. Marin

    If you live far, you can authorize your trusted friend or relative in the Philippines to file your claim in your behalf. You send your representative an original and photocopies of Special Power of Attorney specifically granting him/her authority to file and process your SSS retirement pension claim. You also authorize him/her to sign in your behalf other documents required for processing your claim. You can download the required documents from the SSS website. If the form has two pages, print it back to back (not in 2 separate pieces of paper), legal size. Print in capital letters using black ink. SSS might also require the presentation of your original valid IDs to verify the photocopied IDs.
    You can also email SSS now ofw.relations@sss.gov.ph (Subject: Request for Visa debit card application form for pension) and request this form. Attach a scan or photo of your SSS ID or other valid IDs.

  12. Good pm. May grandfather passed away and is holding dual citizenship. Will there be any problem/s in filing of burial if the death certificate states his citizenship as american citizen since there is no option for dual citizen? Her wife is in the phil to process the needed documents.

  13. Hi Marites, puedeng meron, puede ring wala, depende sa kung naisama na sa pension computation ang 1985 to 1989 sa computation ng pension ng mother mo. Wait na lang. Sabi ng SSS, they’ll try to complete adjustments for all survivor pensioners this December.

  14. Hi mam/sir
    Good day!
    I wanna ask about the sss adjustments…My mom receive a monthly pension from my late father,he have 21 years on sss contributions from 1970,s to 1990s…is there any possibility that my mom can receive any adjustment?

  15. Hi Artemio, it’s the beneficiaries who will claim, and if they’re also abroad and can’t travel, they can file their claim at an SSS office in their area, or use a SPA to authorize a representative to file the claim in the Phils. The SPA should preferably be certified at a Philippine consulate. These are the SSS beneficiaries. Claim the funeral benefit first (claimant is the one who spent for the funeral as proven by ORs) before claiming the death benefit.

  16. My aunt maintained her SSS contribution to date until her death last April 16, 2016. She is a US citizen. How do we claim for death benefits from SSS?

  17. I just to verify if i can continue my SSS contributions after i became a naturalized us citizen. I made 70 monthly ee/er contributions 10 yrs ago; do i need to apply for dual citizenship to continue my contributions and avail of the retirement benefits? Please advise.. i soo appreciate any and all help. Thank you so much in advance!

  18. Hi Nora, would you be able to share to us the law stating that naturalized citizen of other country could continously receive the Philippine SSS pension.Thank you so much and God bless.

  19. Hi windy, yes, there’s a reference in the SSS law, but it’s a bit confusing. But there’s an article about a UK-naturalized Pinay who got her pension. I’ll give you the link after I make a post about this.

  20. Hi windy, yes, you will continue to receive your pension even after you have been naturalized as citizen of another country.

  21. Therefore, based on the above queries, a Philippine SSS pesioner will not lose his/her benefits when he/she becomes a naturalized US citizen?

    Thank you

  22. Great Article. Thanks for the info. Does anyone know where I can find a blank “1998 PH RS-5” to fill out?
