How to Install the New and Latest SSS R3 Program

In this page, I’m sharing the complete guide on how to download and install the latest SSS R3 program because many readers were asking about the new one. The SSS R3 Program is so important to all employers because it is a software provided by SSS to every employer to assist them for reporting SSS contribution collection lists and transmittal certificates to facilitate R5 payments. If you are an authorized signatory of your employer and you are assigned to upload R3 reports, you must download and install the R3 program correctly and properly in your computer to ensure posting of SSS contributions of all employees in your company are uploaded regularly.

Before you install the software I recommend you have the following:

Latest Java installed in your computer – make sure your computer has the latest version of Java installed. If not, I suggest you download the latest version of Java from Oracle which can be found at If you already have Java installed in your computer before, uninstall it and just install the latest software to avoid errors in handling the R3 program. Don’t know how to uninstall? Simply go to Control Panel > Programs > Uninstall Program and find Java and uninstall it.

Win Rar – this is needed to uncompress rar files of the R3 program given to you by SSS.

Unexpired anti-virus software – you need an anti- virus in your computer because you are dealing with SSS files which contain important personal information. You don’t wanna compromise your security on this or your employees’ security especially if you use the internet in uploading R3 and viewing your SSS online account. I recommend Norton 360 and Kaspersky. Ask your employer to have one; it’s just about 1200 pesos. Nobody wants their personal identity or information stolen by web thieves right?

New SSS R3 Program using New Contributions 2014, please read my new updated post here:

For first timers or beginners of installing the program, this post will help you too so it’s important to continue reading below.

New SSS R3 Program System Requirements

The software discussed here is compatible with Windows Vista, Windows 7 and the latest Windows 8. I’ve tried XP and it worked too. Just make sure you have enough extra memory in your hard disk of 100MB. That’s not really a problem since majority of computers nowadays have more Gigabytes of memory already.

Installation of SSS R3 Program Instructions:

1. Save the R3FGComp file in your computer. You can either ask SSS-R3 processor personally for this file and save it in your USB flash drive or just download the file online at In my case, I asked the SSS employee personally since I asked another questions from them. They will ask you what OS (Operating System) you’re using because they will give the software compatible for the version of your Windows (Windows XP, Vista, 7, 8) or Linux.

    Who may qualify for a retirement benefit?
    A member who is 60 years old, separated form employment or ceased to be self-employed, and has paid at least 120 monthly contributions “prior to the semester of retirement.” Ms. Fehl : ano po ang ibig sabihin ng prior to the semester of retirement. ibig ba sabihin nyan kailangan continuous ang contribution mo for at least six months bago ka magretire? thanks.. rvs

    • says

      Semester means 2 consecutive quarters. A quarter has 3 months a semester means 6 months. Yes contributions must always be continuous because it is an insurance

      • rvsolomo says

        thanks for the reply.. I have a 240 contributions sa sss, as I understand sa program nila you will qualify for a pension or lumpsum when you already have 120 contributions.. so qualify na po ako. ang confusing lang is yung ‘prior to the semester of the retirement”. wala na kasi ako job so di na ako nakakahulog sa sss, pano po yun di rin ako makaka-qualify since di na ko makakahulog “prior to the semester of the retirement” which is 60 years old? di ba yung iba huminto na pero nagkaron pa rin sila ng pension or lumpsum?..please help me understand this.. thanks

        • says

          In my understanding, you have to wait until 60 because it is the retirement age for SSS retirement pension and benefits. I suggest you still continue contributing so you’ll get higher amount of pension and benefits. You know the time value of money – the earlier and longer you invest, the higher you’ll earn. Don’t depend on 120 months requirements coz after many years, 5000 pesos will just be 1000 pesos. Know what I mean? If you don’t have a job anymore, contribute still as voluntary member. Update your status.

        Hello Maam:
        Health in the Lord and Blessings of the Holy Spirit!

        Na received ko po ang R3 2014 at maraming maraming salamat po ha… ask favor na naman po kindly send me your SSS LMS program para sa Loan Remittance report.. Salamat po ulit. God bless….

  2. kris says

    if someone has been unemployed for years now, and would like to complete the sss contribution before turning 60, how will we know as to how much will they be paying monthly?

    • Marifel Dungo says

      If you’re not employed, just update your membership as voluntary or self-employed so you can still pay contributions. Check the new SSS table to know the latest amount of contribution you want to pay according to your capacity to pay. I suggest you go to the SSS personally to discuss fully about your inactive account

    Ma’am tanong ko lang po about sa R3 File Generator, mayroon na po akong copy ng r3 file generator and latest JRE and then for the 2014 contribution library, nag download for ako ng new library.dat. and nireplace ko yung luma and nag back up po ako ng er.dat, eeDB.dat, and r3File.dat na na mention naman sa guide ng installation sa sss website.

    Good day!

    Ito po ung error sa EMPLOYEE RECORD ” Invalid amount for ss contribution. Amount is out of bracket. correct the error and try again”. kasi po nag update po ako ng ss amount dahil may bago na tayo bracket. (Ex. before,ss amount 416 + ec 10 = 426 and latest ss amount 440 + ec 10 = 460) kailangan po ba ng bagong program para ma correct po yong error.
