How to Get SSS ID card in the Philippines? – Requirements and Procedure

The requirements and procedure on how to get an SSS ID card in the Philippines are listed in this page. SSS ID is one of the most acceptable IDs or government IDs required when transacting anywhere in the Philippines. SSS ID card is an accepted valid ID whenever you go so it is important to have one. It’s free to get one by the way and all you have to do is go to the SSS branch near you and follow the steps below.

SSS has also joined the feature of UMID ID which is a single ID which comprises SSS, GSIS, Pagibig and Philhealth account in one ID. You can use this card in transacting to the mentioned government agencies nationwide. In this page, I’m gonna discuss the regular SSS ID card issued to all SSS members.

Take note that the same requirements and processing is applied in getting UMID card too. When I got SSS ID card, they issued UMID card already. Read this page to know more about how to get UMID Card for SSS, GSIS, Pagibig and Philhealth.

Before you can get your ID, make sure you are already a member of the Social Security System otherwise you cannot proceed. If you are not a member yet, register now for your SSS number and start your contributions.

Advantages of having an SSS ID

  • You already have one valid ID you can use for life as this has no expiration date like that of a Voter’s ID
  • You can view your contributions anytime to any SSS kiosk just by swiping this ID
  • This serves as your main reference and identification when transacting at SSS or any government agency or office
  • You can use this ID when applying for other IDs in the Philippines – like passport, driver’s license, Philhealth, Pagibig, TIN, visa, licenses, seaman’s book, and many more

SSS ID Card Requirements

  • Fully accomplished application form (E-6)

Any of the following valid IDs:

  • Driver’s License
  • Passport
  • PRC License
  • Seaman’s Book

If you don’t have the primary IDs mentioned, you may submit 2 of the following documents:

Steps in Getting the SSS ID

  • Submit the application form at the SSS branch near you for your assessment and verification together with your valid ID or supporting documents (if you don’t have any ID)
  • Have your fingerprints and signature taken.
  • Then your acknowledgement slip will be given to you by the employee when you’re finished.
  • You’re done. Just wait for your SSS Id card delivered to you at your home address.

    ano po ang gagamitin na form para magfile ng sss id.. e1 form po ba? and pano naman mag-add ng employee under an employer? ok lang ba thru website na lang din? thanks for a brief reply..

    • says

      E1 Form is for the application of SSS Number. If you already have SSS Number and you want to apply for SSS ID card or UMID Card, just fill out an application form for getting an SSS ID (the form is free and they will give you one if you go to the SSS). Make sure you are bringing the listed requirements discussed in the article above, too.

      You can add an employee using the R3 Program when you pay. Just list the new employee with the corresponding status. If you are not familiar with this, read the page about SSS R3 Program and Generating File. We made a separate page for that topic. See it at the related articles here

          • Fehl says

            You need to pay contributions and become SSS active member in order to get UMID card. Register yourself as Voluntary Member while you’re not yet working and bring your E1 and valid IDs

        • Marifel Dungo says

          Next is you must start paying your monthly contributions so you become an active member. After few months, you can apply for ID since you are already active. Kelangan talaga ang SSS espcially to OFWs nowadays

          • tj says

          • Fehl says

            You can get SSS ID card aka UMID card if you are already an active SSS member. Meaning you have to contribute continuous months.

        • Fehl says

          You are no longer active member so you cannot apply for UMID card. Become active again by paying your contributions and wait for 6 months then apply

        • Fehl says

          You are not currently active po, you need to be active again by resuming your monthly contributions to apply for UMID card

        • Fehl says

          Yes, if you know your SSS number, you can pay contributions and transact already. I suggest you get UMID card too so you have SSS Identification

          • Bryan says

            Maam Fehl thanks po sa info…. maliit lang po kasi yung income ko. magkano po pinakamababang pwedeng i contribute sa SSS?

          • Fehl says

            It depends on your status, for OFW, 560, for voluntary 120 ata. Just check out the latest SSS contribution table

    thanks in advance…

    • says

      When I applied for SSS ID (UMID) they checked my application form and the xerox copies of my IDs then they checked my account on their computer. There is no specific requirement that a member must have contributed to have an ID card but I think you must at least paid contributions in order to become active because why would they allow you to have ID if you are an inactive member right? It doesn’t make sense just saying. Anyway that is just my opinion but if I will go to the SSS, I will ask someone about that question :)

      • Ludy Ann Estoce says

        Really ? ahit 1 month lang po pwede na umuha?? please, message me
        My mother really need to have a HUMID Id
        thanks po

      • Oned says

        Hi. I just want to ask. I already have my e-1 form. It’s just that I still haven’t received my sss id. It’s been a year. So where should I go and get the id? Would it be on the main office or on the sss branch where I applied?

        • Marifel Dungo says

          You need to apply for UMID Card at the SSS office, I suggest you apply at your branch. SSS ID card is now the UMID card. Same instructions discussed above. You need to be an active SSS member. God bless!

    • says

      I don’t know if there is such thing as first 100. Maybe it depends upon the SSS branch. Some branches kasi have many applicants per day and they can’t accommodate too much so they practice that first-100 thing. Please ask the branch where you will apply.

    • says

      you can get SSS ID card if you are already an SSS active member. It’s not an issue if you are employed or what because some members are Voluntary. What matter is you’re an active SSS member

  3. amzV says

    I lost my umid. How am I gonna get a new one? Do I still need to go to QC branch, I’m living in Parañaque. Thanks……

    • lisbeth says

      you just need to fill up another UMID application form, get an affidavit of loss and have it notarized by an attorney (sabihin mo lang sa attorney or legal dept ng city hall mo na magpapagawa ka ng affidavit of loss dahil nawalan ka ng sss id, yung ibang sss branch sila nagpoprovide sila ng affidavit of loss form then ikaw na ang magpapanotaryo), then R6 form for a replacement fee of 300php. I suggest na iaccomplish mo na yung affidavit of loss bago ka pumunta ng SSS branch nearest you para pag pumunta ka pipila ka na lang sa teller para magbayad, then sa Generalist counter for screening and then diretso ka na sa Dat capture to have your biometrics taken. And also don’t forget to bring 2 valid IDs (not expired) para di ka pabalikbalik :)

  4. jeffrey co says

    i applied for the id last january but till now.. its not deliver to our house. my co workers got it just for one month of waiting. where can i possible get it? or do i need to wait again for long?

    • jun says

      try to go to your nearest post office, i got mine in our post office. i waited 2 months having the umid card

    • Olivia Baloran says

      check the post office near you.. but if 1 year passed already, post office returns undelivered UMID in SSS branch where you applied for it , so check the branch where you applied for it :)

  5. Gerson Ramos says

    I just want to ask lang poh if okay na kumuha id ng SSS kahit po 2 months ng hindi nakakapagbigay sa SSS.. kasi poh my company is Jollibee Food Corporation, eh 5 months lang poh ako dun, from Sept 2012- Feb. 2013. Eh ask ko lang poh if makakakuha poh ba ako ng SSS ID although hindi na poh ako nagtatrabaho sa Jollibee??

    • says

      I THINK you need to be an active SSS member before you can get one. You can update your status by becoming a Voluntary Member if you’re not employed. Sayang naman contributions mo if you’ll stop. Besides being an active member will make you eligible for benefits.

    • Olivia Baloran says

      you can still get UMID even currently your not active but you must have atleast 11 months contribution :)

  6. janine says

    2 questions
    1) would you need an e1 form to get a sss id? or you would just need to know your sss number?
    2) can you apply for an id even if you have not gotten a TIN?

    thanks in advance. :)

    • says

      You don’t need E1 form. What you need is to fill up SSS ID Application Form and valid IDs. On the application form, you need to provide your SSS Number. Yes, TIN is not really needed (as of now) when you apply for an ID card

      • Jennie rose arenas says

        Hi po ask q LNG po nkakuha. Po aqng sss. Nom. D q p pro nahuhulugan ,gusto ko pong kumuha. Ng sss I’d, mkakakuha pro b AQ tnx.

        • Fehl says

          You must have contributions and you must be an active SSS member in order for you to get UMID card or SSS ID Card

    • sasha says

      I applied for sss id last feb 2013 ,i addressed it in our province in bukidnon, now im residing in davao city. until now i havent receive it yet. Is it possible to get from the post office here in davao city?

  7. Hilbert says

    Tanong ko lang po pwdi po bang kumuha ng UMID ID.may SSS # na po ako pero wala po akung Philhelth at Pag-ibig.Thnks..

    • says

      I have contributed 6 years or more na when I got my SSS ID. I don’t need an ID naman as long as I have the SSS Number. I just got one kase it’s libre and they consider it as a valid ID nationwide so I got one when I visited SSS

  8. Aaron says

    Sure ba na Kahit saang SSS branch Pwede kumuha SSS ID? Kc dati nagtry ako sa FTI kailangan daw sa main branch na…

    • says

      IF they had that specific announcement, yes. I got mine in the branch near where I live. It’s best to get one where your membership is handled in the moment.

    • Aivi Lo says

      i applied mine in FTI last feb 2012.. dati kasi wla pa silang camera or gadgets for ID capturing, last 2009 pnapapunta din ako sa main branch dati pero inantay ko n lng mgkaroon sa fti and yes they are serving in FTI now.. maaga k lng dapat pumila dahil bka abutin k ng pagsara :)

        • Fehl says

          If you stopped contributing for a year now, that means you no longer active. You need to be active again and paying your SSS contributions before you can apply for SSS ID card

  13. SALVACION P DURANTE says

    goodmorning mo..tanung ko lng po kung pwede ng magpareplacement ng umid id sa lahat ng branch ng sss..ang id ko po kasing umid ay napasama ng time na nanakawan ako sa company namin…

  14. Ria says

    Hi. I worked last Oct 2007 until March 2009 & my contributions were complete during those days. However, from March 2009, until the present, I have not made any (personal) contributions. What should I do if I want to continue with my contributions considering that I am no longer working? Also, can I still apply for an SSS card despite the fact that I have not contributed from March 2009 until the present? Thank you so so much.

    • says

      I suggest you switch to voluntary member since you’re not working anymore. It’s a common mistake people stop paying their SSS when they stopped working. Being active no matter what your status (voluntary, employed etc) will give sure benefits.

      • Annaliza says

        Hi! ask q lng if pwde aq mkakuha ng sss id evrn if E1 p lng ang meron aq? and how long is d process before i finally get my id? thanks.. when d tym i visited sss office kc they told me n wl dw hnulog un mga previous company where i work.. but after that, i got work again at Concentrix, and passed my sss number… but i dont know if nhulugan n b nla? need q kc in applying to work abroad. thanks again.

        • Fehl says

          If you are contributing monthly, then you are active. If you are active member, then you can apply for UMID card

    • says

      All you need to do is bring valid ID when you go to the SSS for the UMID. Fill out the form (which will they provide) and wait for your turn to be called to verify your account, then get your picture, signature and fingerprints if you’ve been okayed for ID

        hi miss Fehl, i dont have SSS yet. if i apply for an SSS number and got one already. how long will it takes to get an ID?

        • says

          If you already have contributions, you may get an ID. I got my ID after a month after I applied but I’ve been contributing for like 5 years or so. It’s ok if you don’t have an ID as long as you have an SSS Number and you are an active member

          • Marifel Dungo says

            Please choose your contribution amount by checking out the New SSS Contribution Table 2014. See it from the Related Posts above.

    • says

      If you have valid IDs, no need na. Fill up the application form and submit photocopies of IDs, show the original, and get verified by the SSS employee

      • Vanessa Joy Ramirez says

    • says

      When you filed E1, your SSS Number then will be issued. Check your SSS Number on your copy of E1 form and give that number to your employer. We are only allowed 1 SSS number for life

      • says

        Bring original and photocopy of valid ID and NSO birth certificate at the SSS branch near you and fill up E1 form. Submit the form together with your photocopy requirements. Wait for your SSS number to be issued on the E1 form which will be given to you by SSS. Keep that for life.

    • says

      SSS ID is not really required as long as you have active SSS account and you are eligible for salary loan. You can apply for SSS ID card by going to the SSS and yes take the same time to check if you’re eligible for a loan. :)

  25. Ryan says

    Hi! ask ko lang, I have my sss# but when I try to apply for a salary loan online, I’v found out that i’m not qualified for a loan & my sss# was tagged as temporary#, what do i hav to do? thanks

  27. Bienvenido Alabra says

    Hi,
    I went to the SSS Espana Branch to apply for my UMID. i came there with my e6 form already filled up. When my turn at counter C, the guy at the table found out that my middle name is not complete (only my middle initial is encripted in the computer). So he politely ask me to have my middle name updated at window B, he also told me that since i brought along with me supporting documents, i dont need to get a queue number and i can go to him directly without getting another queue number.
    I proceeded to counter B and waited for my queue number to be called. It was quick, my number was called within 15 minutes. At the counter, i asked the lady to ammend my middle name. Upon checking my records in her computer, she found out that the date of birth in their records doesnt match (March 17, 1957 instead of March 18, 1957!!!) she asked for any identification and docs. I handed her my Postal ID (the easiest ID to get). She said that this is only seconary document and asked me if i have my baptismal certifucate. I do have a photocopy but no origina. I showed her the photocopy.
    She then told me that SSS cannot proceed with the process and that i have to go to Hagonoy, Bulacan Local Registrars Office to get a new Baptismal Certificate.
    This, despite showing her my original marriage certificate, bank book, expired passport, diploma and transcript of records, old emplyment id’s, etc.
    What a harrowing experience for just trying to get an ID.
    I left SSS for home very disappointed. What do i do next? I am a jobless former OFW and just thinking of more expenses just to correct some data to get get my UMID processed is disheartening.

    Please help.

    Thank you.

    • says

      You’re not alone with that kind of problem. I know some people who had related experience. The solution to your problem is to correct your birth certificate. All our documents, IDs, diploma, passport, etc depend and base on the details in our Birth certificate. So for consistency, you must start correcting your birth certificate. That starts from your LCR (Local Civil Registrar) office. Go to the Municipal’s Office where you were born and tell your BC corrections to the LCR staff. The LCR staff usually know what to do already since they deal same problems everyday. Usual process of this is they edit the correct birth and endorse the correction to the NSO Main. So they will forward a letter of endorsement to the NSO head Office. You need to wait probably around 3 months or so until your correct birthday was entered. Once it’s done, then you can get a new NSO authenticated birth certificate from any NSO and you can use this in the SSS or other offices you need to deal. I don’t know if it still takes about 3 months – maybe yes or maybe not. I hope it’s faster today. hehe

      Personal appearance is required because when a member gets ID card or UMID, the member needs to sign his signature and needs to have his picture captured and fingerprints scanned.

      • jennifer tabora araneta says

        hellow po mam… gusto ko lang po malaman f pwede ba ako kumuha ng sss id kahit po yung process ng sss ko ay ginawa sa ibang bansa at saka 3buwan ko pa lang nahulugan tapos nagstop ako sa pagbayad ..member po ba ako sa sss salamat po

    • says

      there’s no need for an SSS ID to get UMID. Just have the requirements and follow the instructions discussed in the article and you can get SSS UMID

  28. Spiffyj says

    pano po kung ung last contribution ko is last year pa. pwede parin ba ako mag request/apply for sss id? or i need to contribute again before i can request/apply for sss id?

    • says

      I think a member must be an active member before she apply for SSS ID card because you’ll be verified in the process. I don’t see a point in getting an SSS ID if the member is inactive.

  29. nyke.. says

    pnu po pg ist timer lng na ku2ha nng sss i.d crd ts ala pong valid id ..ok lng po ba ung birth certificate na pag apply?

  30. Keith.R.A. says

    Ask ko lang po kung libre yung pagpagawa ng SSS ID and what are the requirements? Nawawala yung E1 form ko and kailangan daw ng ID or yung E1 Form para maka advance ako sa next step sa kompanya. Thanks Godbless.

  31. jazzy23 says

    Sana nabasa ko to kanina. I went to SS Kapitolyo earlier to apply for an ID but I only have my postal ID with me and birth cert. They said I should I have 2 valid ids, I thought di pwede birth cert. Tsk! Konti pa naman ng tao kanina. Sayang! Monday nalang ulit. Pwede pala ah. Thank you for this info! :)

    • says

      If you don’t have enough valid IDs, try bring 2-3 supporting documents. They are listed at the back of the application form. If you don’t have application form, we made a post about the list of acceptable IDs and supporting documents here. Check them out.

  32. Frel Go says

    Hi! may i ask if a Phil-health ID, company ID and SSS number will do, in order for me to get an SSS id card? I’m planning to go there tomorrow. Thanks in advance! :)

  33. JV Andrada says

    January 30, 2013 ako nagapply ng SSS ID. August 2013 na wala pa din. imamail ba talaga? gaano ba katagal? or saan sya pwede maclaim?

    Thanks!

    • says

      I got mine after a month. Yes they sent it via mail for free. If yours is taking too long, I suggest you contact the SSS branch where you applied your ID card and ask them why it’s taking too long for the delivery. They will gladly help you :)

  34. aleli says

    hi, ask k lang po kc need ko po kc ng 2 valid id’s for employment eh postal id lang po ang meron aq..gusto ko sanang mag-apply lng for sss id pra maging 2 n ung valid id q..ok lng ba un?

  35. gaselann says

    question.. kapag nkapagsubmit na po ng requirements for sss id, kelan po madedeliver,, ilang days po…thanks :)

  36. kenneth lloyd suan says

    Question- how can I check online if my SSS number is valid? Because I have some reason to believe that it may not be real because my last company was the one that got my number and not me.

    • says

      You cannot verify or check online if an SSS number is valid. You need to verify it personally at the SSS. Bring valid ID to prove you are the person verifying it

  37. Jenn says

    Hi. I submitted E-1 form to SSS along with a copy of my birth certificate. Then they gave me the copy of E-1 form, but they said they’ll just give me an ID once I start working.

    I don’t have work yet, but I do need the SSS ID (It’s a requirement for a bank account I’m applying to).

    So, can I still get an ID even though I have no work yet? And what should I fill up or do so I can get it?

    Thank you!

    • says

      You need to be an active SSS member before you can get an SSS ID card or UMID. If you are currently unemployed, register yourself at the SSS as Voluntary Member. Bring your SSS E1 that was issued by the SSS and register as voluntary aka individual paying member. Pay your contributions and apply ID card after 3 months. I’m not sure if the requirement is 3 months because I applied for my ID after many years of being an SSS member. I don’t really need the ID kasi

  38. michelle sunga says

    • says

      I suggest you contact the SSS branch and follow up there. If it’s been 2 years and you still didn’t receive your ID card, go to the SSS personally to verify about your account and know the reasons why your card didn’t arrive

  40. Marivic Villanueva says

    Hello po! wanna ask ng pede ako kumuha ng SSS ID anywhere branch of SSS?

    Pls answer my question! salamat po.

    • says

      I think you can apply for benefits as long as you are an active member even if you don’t have ID. What is important is you are eligible for benefits

  41. Ann says

    I’m a new SSS member and I need to have the id, but before I get one I have to get Rs-1 approval. So my questions are:
    1. What should I do to get that Rs-1 approval?
    2. If I should have at least one-month contribution as self-employed/voluntary, how much should I contribute?
    Please reply, I really have no idea. Thanks!

    • says

      Hi there. Submit RS-1 form and fill it out. Let SSS assess it for approval. Your contributions will depend on your monthly earnings and according to the SSS contribution table. You must be an active member in order to get SSS UMID / ID Card

  42. Jason says

    Can I apply for an SSS ID even if I stopped like paying the fees for almost 3 years now since I came here abroad but planning to go back home maybe next month. I still I have the pink paper from sss I signed before, it’s like a registration thing.. and how many days will I get it after I applied for an ID… Thanks…

        Hi, I have query po…
        I would like to get my SSS number, i remember i registered year 2009 (if i am not mistaken)… My previous employer didn’t pay for my contribution, therefore i still don’t have SSS card. But i want to know first how to get my SSS number. I’m an OFW i want to pay for my own contribution. Please help.

        Thanks,

          • says

            White sya but the duplicate is pink so yes :) The duplicate will be left at the member, the original (white) will be left at SSS. It’s ok if you don’t have the form as long as you know your SSS number. If you don’t, just verify it at SSS

  43. rxely says

    tnx and more power

    • says

      You need to be an active member first. Since you only have contributed a month, wait for another 3 months and go to the SSS for UMID application. Make sure though you are paying your contributions every month. God bless!

    • says

      I think yes you can use your UMID in passport application BUT you cannot use it to avail SSS benefits becoz you are not an active member anymore. Why did you stop? Sayang naman contributions. I suggest you resume it so you can avail pension when you retire.

  52. Harvey says

    panu po pala sng gagawin , kasi nag palit po ako ng spelling sa pangalan ko e, from hervey to harvey. yung e1 ko ay herbey, e ngayon po kukuha ako ng sss id pero ang name ko na ay harvey. panu po yun? pls help po

  58. Hinata says

    Hi po! :) Tanong ko lang po kung valid o kailangan bang ilagay ang SSS number sa mga forms na sinasagutan like sa pagkuha ng VISA or sa pag-open ng bank account? May SSS number na po kasi ako na nakuha ko nung college student pa lang ako. Kakagraduate ko pa lang po so unemployed pa po ako at wala pang hulog sa SSS at wala pang SSS ID.

    Naapprove na po kasi yung application for visa ko and naghihintay na lang ako ng date for the interview. May kailangan po kasing form na sagutan at may SS number. Hindi ko po sure kung ilalagay ko yung SSS number ko kahit hindi pa po talaga ako official na member ng SSS. Ilalagay ko po ba?

    Thank you po! :)

    • Marifel Dungo says

      Hi there. Yes you can put your SSS number at the visa application or your bank account application. We only have one SSS number for life so it won’t change anymore whether you’re active member or not. If you’re applying for working visa and asked you why you have SSS though you’re not employed, just tell them you got the number when you were still a student. Always be honest on the interview and filling up your forms and you won’t have a problem. Anyway, you mentioned you’re a fresh graduate.

  59. Jeric says

    Hi!! Pwede na po ba aqng kmuha ng UMID ID, uala aqng work pero nag self-employed aq, ka2 contrbute q pa lang nung nov 12, 2013 at nag advance po aq ng payment q hanggang dec, which means naka 2 months contribution na aq…pede na kaya aq mag request ng UMID ID??

  60. Mike says

    Hi, good day! Nawala ang SSS id ko many years ago at hindi pa ako nakakapag apply ng bago. Ngayon, gusto ko sana mag apply for UMID. Ask ko lang kung need ko pa ba kumuha ng Notarized Affidavit of Loss?

    • Marifel Dungo says

      Since it’s UMID na, I THINK you can get UMID as long as you bring 2 valid IDs with photocopies and your application form. Get verified and you’re done.

    • Marifel Dungo says

      Yeah, update your membership status whether you’re employed, voluntary member, OFW and you can start paying your contributions. You need to go to the SSS branch to do this

SOFRONIO G.LAGANSUA JR., pag nauna ang apilyedo ganito: LAGANSUA SOFRONIO JR. G. pero nagkaroon po kasi ng issue before nung magclaim ako ng sickness benefit ko tungkol sa positioning ng JR sa name ko kung saan ba talaga ilalagay. Ang ginamit ko po ay ganito LAGANSUA SOFRONIO JR. G., mali raw po ito dapat daw ay ganito LAGANSUA JR. SOFRONIO G. pero doon po sa original na application ko ay LAGANSUA SOFRONIO JR. G. Alin po dito ang tama? Salamat po ng maramim sana matulungan po ninyo ako.

    • Marifel Dungo says

      Hi there. Your name and surname is kinda confusing so maybe they didn’t know which was your surname and name. I suggest you go to the SSS office who handles your membership and bring your NSO birth certificate. Request your name to be corrected. Every office in the Philippines base their records and personal info of the member from their NSO birth certificate. It is important to be consistent para maiwasan nadin problema sa ibang ahensya like getting a passport and IDs. Fix your name issue asap po. I hope my advice helped you. :)

      Go to the SSS and bring valid IDs and your SSS number (in your case you remember it). Fill up Update Form and update your new status as married, attach your NSO Marriage Certificate. Sabay mo na din application for UMID Card. Fill up application form and proceed to verification.

        • Marifel Dungo says

          Old SSS ID cards are still working pa naman. Valid pa naman sila and you can still use them. UMID card is new coz it is one card for SSS, GSIS, Pagibig and Philhealth

    • Marifel Dungo says

      It’s free to get UMID, no payment needed. Your UMID card then will be your valid SSS ID Card, Philhealth and Pagibig

    • Marifel Dungo says

      Bring your NSO Birth Certificate orig. and photocopy and download E1 form to see the other requirements at the back if you don’t have primary ID

  83. rg says

    Good day po! ask lang po pwede po bang kumuha na ng sss number using E1 form kahit di pa natatanggap sa work? Since isa po kasi di ba sa requirements ung sss numbersa pre employment aayusin ko napo sana habang maaga..thanks

    • Marifel Dungo says

      You already have SSS number if you had E1 form (the pink one as your receiving copy). If you wish to get UMID Card, you need to be an active member of SSS, meaning you need to be paying monthly contributions. If you are currently unemployed, register as Voluntary Member to become an active member and pay your contributions

    Ako po ang nag-file ng funeral claim para sa isang SSS member na namatay last November, 2013.
    Di agad na-process dahil TEMPORARY daw ang SSS number nya at nanghingi pa sila ng authenticated birth or baptismal certificate ng deceased, which i submitted last January 29, 2014 lang.
    I-verify ko raw sa kanila after 4 weeks kung naging PERMANENT na yung SSS number, so the funeral claim can be processed.
    I went there last March 20, 2014 (after 6 weeks), hindi pa rin daw sya permanent.
    I asked what could be the cause of delay, hindi rin nila alam.
    So, bumalik na lang daw ako every now and then to verify.

    Question: After submitting the required documents para maging permanent yung SSS number, gaano ba talaga katagal bago ito maging permanent? Kung matagalan man than expected, what could really be the cause of delay?

    • Fehl says

      Only them knows what is the exact cause of delay. But we can logically think it may be because of system upgrade or someone who is in a position to authorize the status didn’t yet make it permanent

  88. Diane says

    I apply fo UMID ID last 2012 and until now hindi ko pa sya nakukuha. Pero yung kasama ko nareceive na nya yung kanya. How will iknow kung ano na nangyari sa application ko? IS there any chance na baka hindi na yun naprocess?

  89. Lorrien says

    Hi ask ko if mag bayad ako ng 1year Makaka kuha nba ako ng sss I’d? Now pa lng ako mag start my E1 na ako. Yung one year isang bayaran lng. Pwdi ba yun?

    • Fehl says

      I always advise to continue SSS contributions until 60 so you can have retirement funds in the future. You can get UMID card (SSS ID Card) if you are active member. You will be active member if you will pay continuously

    • Fehl says

      This has been asked before. Yes, as long as you’re an active SSS member or GSIS member. Anyway, being active on any of the 2 also means you’re mandatory to be a member of Pagibig and Philhealth too so you need to be one.

  90. Poi says

    Itatanong ko lang po sana kung pag ba nakakuha na ng SSS number eh kailangan na bang magbayad ng contribution ? At pano po ba yung Voluntary member na tinatawag ? I recently graduated palang kasi kaya hindi ko pa po masyadong alam yung mga tungkol dito pero gusto ko narin sanang makakuha ng ID kung possible . Pwede po ba yun , kahit wala pang trabaho ?

    • Fehl says

      Yes you need to be an active SSS member before you can get an ID card. If you are not currently employed, you can register as voluntary member. Just go to the SSS branch near you and start your Voluntary Contributions

  91. mary jane payao says

    ms.fhel..i have doubts kc..my sss number nah po aq..nkahulog nah po aq for 5 mos.peo last 2009 pah po..and im planning to get umid id..mkakakuha po ba aq or i need to pay contribution pah po..how months pah po klangan q mag voluntarily contribute before i can get umid? pls.reply…

    • Fehl says

      You need to be an active member to get UMID card. If your last payment was back in 2009, you’re not an active member anymore. Active member means, you’re paying contributions continuously. Resume your contributions and pay about 6 months the apply for UMID. hope that helps

  92. Lea Woo says

    Hello..anu po requirements if i will apply SSS ID with my married name? Hinahanapan po kasi ako atleast 1 valid id with my married name and marriage contract. Does police clearance can serve as valid id? Thank you!

    • Fehl says

      NSO Marriage Certificate, Valid ID bearing your new last name. If you don’t have ID, you need to submit 2 supporting documents like Police Clearance, Postal ID etc. Make sure they are not expired

    • Fehl says

      You must be an active member. You must have paid SSS contributions of 6 months when you apply for UMID. If you’re not active, you cannot get one

    • Fehl says

      I suggest you resume your membership coz sayang anman yung mga contributions mo in the past. Go to the SSS branch near you and update your member’s info and new status. Bring supporting documents like your new Marriage Certificate from NSO and affidavit that you remarried or proof why you remarried.

  101. billy says

    hi ask ko lng po,meron na po akong ss number e1 form ..pero bakit po may nakaclip sa form ko,.ito po naka lagay
    “for members with newly issued sss number:”
    “your sss number is not for payment as voluntary or self-employed member.this number is for employment purposes only.”
    nakuha ko po ang sss number ko nung 2012 pa,at wala pang hulog or di pa po ako employed?
    pano po ako makahulog ng contribution sa ss number ko?para maka apply ako ng sss id..
    pls help nmn po..tnx

    • Fehl says

      Since you are employed, then your employer will deduct you some amount every month from your salary as your contribution in SSS. You don’t need to report payment at the SSS then as long as you’re employed. ALl you need to do is monitor your SSS account by checking your Employee Static info so you’re aware about your contributions

  102. myla says

    • Fehl says

      Make SSS contributions continuously for 6 months and then apply for UMID. Stay active and continue paying your contributions so that you remain active.

  107. Jomara says

    Hello. Do I really need to start contributions to get SSS ID? Hindi pa kasi ako offcially employed. Just for training requirements lang sa in-apply-an ko. Can I get an SSS ID for this?

        • Fehl says

          You need to be an active member to get UMID card / SSS ID card. Having E1 doesnt make you active if you’re not paying contributions

  113. LENIE BELLE CARASO says

    SIR/MADAM,

    ASK KO LANG PO ILAN MONTH DAPAT NKAHULOG SA SSS, PARA MKAKUHA NG SSS ID?. TAPOS WALA SA AKIN YUNG FORM NA E-6 BA YUN PERO MAY SSS NUMBER AKO. PWEDE BA AKO MKAKUHA NG SSS ID ANYTIME?

    THANKS,

    • Fehl says

      If you’re an active member and have been paying 6 months, you can apply for UMID. Submit the requirements.

  114. Mish says

    Hi fehl. 20 yr old student po ako pero gusto ko sana mag-apply ng SSS ID card. Sorry hindi ok masyadong magets. Where do I get my SSS number? How much should I contribute monthly? And for how long should I contribute before I am able to apply for my SSS ID? Thanks! Laking tulong ng article mo, by the way. :)

    • Fehl says

      If you don’t have SSS number yet, get one sa SSS branch near you. You need to become active member in order to apply SSS ID card / UMID card. If you’re not employed yet, register as Voluntary Member then pay your contributions (see SSS contribution table 2014). Since you’re voluntary member, you can pay the contributions you can afford. Pay monthly or quarterly and never missed a month so you can remain active and receive benefits in the future.

      • Mark says

        Hi Ma’am,
        Same issue like Ma. Rina Castillo po, actually since 2010 pa po ako nakakuha ng SSS.nakapag follow up na po ako years ago pero wala pa rin po dumadating kaya now ‘di ko na rin po naasikaso. Possible pa po ba kayang makuha ung SSS ID Card after 4 years or kung pwede na lang pong mag-apply ng UMID Card na automatically replaces the old SSS ID Card na hindi ko pa na-receive?
        Ano po kaya maganda at maire-recommend niyo? Kung okay lang po ba na mas maganda kung UMID Card na lang or mas maganda po na may UMID Card ka na plus nasa iyo pa ‘yung SSS ID Card para kung sakaling mawala man ung UMID eh may backup po ng luma?
        Eh pagkakaalam ko po kasi, hindi na po ini-issue ‘yung SSS ID Card alone na pinalitan na nila ng UMID Card. Tama po ba ‘yun?

        Thanks

        • Fehl says

          The new SSS ID card is now the UMID card. They don’t issue the old card anymore. If you are an active SSS member, you can apply for UMID card

  118. Gharie says

      It depends on your salary if you’re employed. See the New SSS Contribution Table to know how much you need to contribute monthly if you’re employed or unemployed or OFW

    • Fehl says

      If you are only starting to pay your contributions, you’re not yet an active member yet. Wait for around 6 months and never miss a month to pay your contributions, then apply for SSS ID / UMID card.

    • Fehl says

      If you’re active, you can apply for ID. If you’ve not paying contributions in the last 6 months, you’re likely inactive and you need to update your account into self-employed like you mentioned here. Then pay contributions
