How to get SSS Number? Requirements and Procedure

I am sharing here how to get SSS number and what are the requirements. Getting SSS number is the first step to be a member of the SSS. If you work in the Philippines and you are employed in a private company, it is mandatory to be a member of SSS and pay monthly contributions. If you are a kasambahay or household service worker, it is also advisable to be an active member of SSS. If unemployed, you can also become a member of SSS by being a Voluntary Member. Even drivers join the SSS via AlkanSSSya Program.

UPDATE: You can now Apply or Get SSS Number Online

SSS also known as Social Security System in the Philippines is so important not only in social security but also for retirement. It gives benefits like maternity benefits, sickness, disability, loans, funeral, retirement and a lot more. To become eligible for benefits, you must maintain your active membership with SSS and maintain your contributions. As of now, the minimum contribution in order to be eligible for retirement pension is 120 months.

To avail the other benefits, maintain an active membership by paying monthly. Also never miss a month to avoid penalties.

Requirements in getting SSS Number

Take note that SSS Number is different with SSS ID Card or UMID. SSS Number is the per-requisite to be an SSS member. To get this number you need:

  • SSS E1 Form – fill this out properly and correctly
  • Birth Certificate – original and photocopy
  • Valid IDs or any among the list of supporting documents – original and photocopy
  • An email address for your SSS online account

Procedures in getting SSS Number

  • Fill up your personal details and information on the SSS E1 form. You can get the form at the SSS branch near you. You can also download it online if you want.
  • Fall in line at the SSS branch near you and wait for your turn. Submit your E1 form and attach your photocopies of valid IDs and birth certificate.
  • Wait for your personal copy of E1 form. SSS will issue your SSS Number at the upper part of E1 form. Keep this for life because it is so important. Never lose it because we can only have ONE SSS Number for life.

Notes:

Once you have been issued an SSS number, you must contribute and pay your contributions once you’re employed or registered as employed, voluntary, OFW or household service worker or whatever your current status is. Having SSS number does not mean automatic coverage and eligibility to benefits. You need to be an active member and you need to meet SSS requirements for coverage.

Remember, keep your SSS number because you are not allowed to get another one again. If you lost your number or you can’t remember it anymore, verify it at the SSS.

SSS Number for Employers

If you are an employer, you must submit all the documents in registering as employer together with the list of your employees. SSS will issue you your SSS employer’s number and certificate and will assist and teach you in employees SSS matters such as submitting R3 reports.

    • Go to SSS, bring your UMID card (if any) or valid ID if wala kang UMID card, tell the SSS staff you will update your status to Voluntary. SSS staff will then check your SSS info and discuss you your contributions according to your chosen monthly contributions

  62. Hi Madam,

    I got a quick question. I lost my SSS E1 form years ago. I still don’t have an SSS card. But I have a copy of my SSS number. So I applied a UMID yesterday and the process is taking 2 to 3 months. My employer abroad required me to submit a copy of SSS card or E1 form but I don’t have them. Is it possible to acquire a new E1 form? Or is there any other SSS documents that could be substituted to the lost E1 or SSS card? Hope to hear from you. Thanks and best regards.

    • E1 form is the form needed when you are applying for SSS number. Since you already have SSS number, you don’t need E1 form. your other choices are to get UMID card or print SSS Static Info

  65. Hello ,

    My husband and I migrated in Calgary Alberta Canada last June 2005 and we forgot our SSS ID number and we would like to know the status of our contribution. My husband worked and paid monthly contributions for 20 years and I also contributed for 20 years as well.
    How do we get our SSS numbers and can we still have our pension when we reach 65 years old?
    We stopped paying contributions last 2005.
    Kindly advise how we can be updated on the status of our SSS contribution.

    Thelma

    Reply
    • Hi. You need to verify your SSS number by going to SSS personally and showing your valid IDs. That way, you can also check what benefits you’re entitled with your 20 years of contribution. I suggest you continue your active status too so you’ll be entitled for retirement benefits when you reached 60 years of age

      Reply
  66. “Once you have been issued an SSS number, you must contribute and pay your contributions ONCE you’re employed or registered as employed, voluntary, OFW or household service worker or whatever your current status is.”

    Hi. So this means I can get an SSS # even if I’m not yet employed? Or do I have to pay contributions once I have my SSS #? Thank you 🙂

        Ask ko po sana if needed talaga yung original NSO birth cert. Kung kukuha ako ng SSS number hindi po ba pwedeng xerox copy lang? Then, wala po kc akong valid i.d ok lang po ba kung birth cert.?

    • If you’re employed, you can give your employer your SSS number and they will deduct your necessary contributions from your monthly salary. If register yourself as voluntary member sa SSS and follow the SSS table to know how much you want to contribute

    Tanong ko lang po. Nakapagfill up na po ako ng E-1 form and may number na naibigay. Gusto ko pong malaman kung ano na po ang kasunod kong gagawin. Kailangan ko po ba magpunta ng sss office para magverify pa kung pwede ko na po hulugan or kailangan ko na po talagang hulugan? need din po ba na iinform yung sss na voluntary member lang or proceed na agad sa pagbabayad? Please let me know. Thank you.

    Reply
    • Did you registered as employed or voluntary? If you’re employed, you don’t need to do anything usually coz your SSS will be paid thru payroll..If you’re a voluntary member, you need to check the SSS table to know your contributions. If you don’t know, then go to SSS to update your account status and pay your contributions

    • No, you don’t need to get another SSS number. We are only allowed 1 SSS number for life. You will use the same number wherever you live or wherever company you may be. If you want to update your address in your account, go to the new SSS branch where you now report your contributions and file an a Member’s Update form

    • If you’re employed, you must be an employed member and your employer will pay some shares for your contributions. If you’re unemployed, you will be paying for your contributions 100%, It’s better if you’re employed coz you won’t shoulder all the payment

    • Yes the SSS Number will be at the upper left portion once E1 is issued. Pink copy will be left in your hand. Assuming you have been contribution continuously for a year now, yes you can apply for UMID card.
