How to Pay and Post SSS Employees Contributions Monthly and Quarterly

How to Pay and Post SSS Employees Contributions  – this page is about paying, remitting and posting SSS contributions of employees monthly and quarterly. As an employer, we are required and mandated to remit payments to SSS of our employees’ premiums either every month or every quarter to ensure complete SSS posting and to ensure our staff entitled for SSS benefits whenever the needs arise.

Requirements in Paying SSS Employees’ Contributions

  • Employer Contributions Payment Form – also known as SSS Form R-5
  • Contributions Collection List – also known as SSS Form R-3or R-3 Diskette/USB File
  • Cash or Check payable to SSS

How to Pay and Post SSS Employees Contributions

When and where to pay and remit employees contributions? Although there is now a special deadline for SSS payments based on the tenth digit of a member’s SSS number, I advise employers to pay like the usual deadline which is on or before the 10th day of the following month because your employees have different SSS number and this is much convenient for you and your payroll staff.

I also advise to pay to the SSS branch that handles your company’s records to maintain fast and easy access of records and employees’ applications concerns. Paying to the SSS branch will save your time when you will submit your R3 files too although you can also pay SSS contributions online and to some accredited payment centers like banks.

Steps in Paying SSS Employees’ Contributions

  • Fill out 3 copies of SSS Form R5 and make sure all your company’s info such as SSS employer’s number, company name, type of payor, date of payment, contact number and amount of remittance for social security contributions and employees’ compensation contributions are all correctly written.
  • Count your cash or money or double-check your check or postal money orders before paying.
  • Go to the SSS branch near you and pay.
  • Keep the receipt and have it photocopied for the next step (below)

Steps in Posting Employees SSS Contributions

  • Once you paid your employees SSS premiums, you are not done yet. You still need to submit the receipt together with the SSS R3 diskette or USB file and copies of each month’s Transmittal Certification and Employee File. If you don’t know how to print these documents, please read How to Use SSS R3 Program and Generate File.
  • Prepare photocopies of the SSS R5 (receipt). Prepare 2 copies per month because SSS will keep one copy per month of payment.
  • Prepare 2 copies of Transmittal Certification, too and sign them. SSS will receive one copy each month covered.
  • Prepare 2 copies of Employee File per month of payment.
  • Submit your SSS R3 diskette or USB flash drive for posting and uploading of the collections and contributions. SSS then will save the R3 Collection Monthly List before they will return your diskette or USB flash drive. They will be in PDF format and you have to print these out and keep them for your file reference.

By the way, paying quarterly means paying 3 consecutive months and doing the same submission to the SSS as discussed above. You can pay quarterly so that you won’t be going to the SSS every month but you will have to inform your employees about this option so they will be aware of the deductions from their salary.

That’s it. You’re done. Very easy right?

If you have personal questions and inquiry, contact the SSS branch near you. If you wanna share your experience using the R3, feel free to share them here. Mabuhay!

  2. Good day Ma’am,

    sa option list ng sss e-services under submit contribution collection list (R3) may option po na create collection list online and upload collection list. I’m confused to what option should i used to submit our R3 contribution list. ano po ba dapat? one more thing, how do I know kung napost na yung R3. Im comparing it to Philhealth dun kasi you can see yung mga posted transactions, unlike sa SSS wala naman history ng posted R3’s. I tried clicking the inquiry tab under E-services pero wala din

    Reply
    • hindi na po kailangan sa ngayon kasi yung online AMS billing na po ang ginagamit ng SSS kaya pagkabayad nyo po ay automatic maaupdate na ang payments.

Ask ko lang po baka may maibigay po kayong paliwanag or tulong sakin, 10 months po kasi akong nagtrabaho sa isang branch ng hap chan simula june 2016 – april 2017 hanggang sa nalipat po ako sa isa pa nilang branch may 2017 – present. Nanggaling po ako sa sss sa may macapagal noong june 20, 2017 para magpa-id po sana kaya lang dun ko po nalaman na wala po palang naihulog etong current employer ko na si hap chan ni isa kahit na tuluy tuloy po silang nagkakaltas sakin. Pagtapos po nun pinakitaan po ako ng employer namin ng R-5 na binayaran nung may 2017 for april 2107 coverage at special bank receipt payment for the month of december 2016. Pero bakit po ganoon wala pa rin po akong contribution sa record ng sss? Sana po matulungan nyo ako.

        • Hingi ka ng copy ng proof of payment sa previous employer mo then dalhin mo sa nearest sss for late posting. I encode lng nila un basta my proof ka. Just incase hnd k talga pinagbayad ng employer mo dalhin mo proof mo (payslip) n kinakaltasan ka.. then file a complaint sa sss. Sana makatulong sau to. ☺️

    • That’s ok. SSS staff will still accept your late R3 submission. What is important is your SSS payments were all paid on time. they might ask you though why you are late to submit the R3, so prepare for an explanation 🙂

    • Hi, your employer must submit Contributions List sa SSS every month para mag post and mareflect ang lahat ng hulog sa SSS. Every employer has that responsibility alam nila yan noong nagregister sila sa SSS. Pag hindi po sila nagsubmit ng Contribution List, di maipopost ang contributions kahit nagbabayad sila on time

    • there is no advance payment sa sss sir. you have to wait until you achieve the required month of contribution in availing the loan. I suggest you create an account on the sss website for you to know your entitlement sa mga benefits.

  22. Hi. Im already working for almost 11 months. So i want to check my contribution. I send an email to the SSS and they replied to me that i am still a prior registrant. It seems my employer did not covered me for SSS member. I already have a deduction on my salary. How can i be sure that my contribution was really send to the SSS? And is there’s really a deduction from my salary if im still a prior registrant?

    • I suggest talk to your employer and ask why your contributions are not reflected on your SSS account. Also ask them if they have included you among their employee list.

  23. Hi, just would like to share my scenario on payment of contribution. I’m an employer. Before, yung mother ko ang nagaasikaso ng SSS ng mga employee namen, but this time, this month of June, ako mismo ang nagasikaso ng SSS contribution. My problem is, hindi ko sinunod yung usual contribution na laging binabayaran ng mother ko, ginawa ko sya na mas mataas sa usual. tinaasan ko bigla ng malaki yung contribution. sabi ng mother ko, kung magtataas daw ng contribution dapat 1 step/bracket higher lang. hindi daw dapat biglang magjump sa mas malaki na salary. so, sobra yung nabayaran ko for this month of June. I paid through bank, though I didn’t post/report on R3 it yet. Paano ko po kaya eto maayos? Pwede kaya macredit on the next month yung sobra kong binayad. Thanks in advance! 🙂

  25. Patulong po. na-approved un SSS Salary loan ko ng previous employer ko pa. Umalis ako sa previous company ko 1month before ako nagfile ng salary loan. Nun nag loan ako online, hindi pa nagrereflect ang current employer ko. Hindi ko makuha un cheque sa previous company ko dahil hinihingi nila sa akin un “Certificate of Loan Continuance” from my current employer kaso sabi ng HR ng current company ko, hindi sila nag-iissue ng ganun certificate. Pumunta na rin ako sa SSS at ang sabi kahit walang certificate ay okay lang naman. Hindi naman po ako makapagloan ulit kasi kailangan muna ipa-cancel un cheque. Paso na rin po un cheque at hanggang ngayon nghihingi pa rin un previous employer ko ng ganun certificate kasi daw sa kanila daw naka-bill un cheque. Ano na po gagawin ko? Thank you.

    Reply
    • request any certificate from your current employer indicating your SSS loan and info about it or any certificate from them proving about the loan, right mo naman manghing ng ganon bilang employee and right mo din mag-request ng covenient way sa past employer mo regarding this matter since involved sila. I hope they will help you.

  35. Hi Ms. Fehl, just wanna inquire my husband is an OFW and he wasn’t able to pay his contributions for more than 2 years. The question is,

    1) can I just pay based on the SSS PAYMENT TABLE or should I still go at SSS branch to ask for reactivation of my husband’s membership?or my husband should be the one to update his membership?

    2) Whats the difference or benefits if my husband declared himself as voluntary membership or as OFW?

    SALAMAT PO NG MARAMI 🙂

    Reply
    • You must update his account first to resume contributions in order to reactivate his account. He can authorize you since you’re his wife. You need authorization letter from him. The benefits are the same as far as I know. The difference is that the minimum salary credit (as of now) for OFW is 5000.

    • Self-employed means you have a business you own, you’re a sole proprietor etc. Voluntary can also be just ordinary people like housewife etc. I think you’re good as long as you pay contributions regularly. I suggest you register for SSS online account so you can monitor your contributions better. God bless!

  45. Hi Everyone,

    Would just like to share how SSS computes for the penalty when SSS contributions have been delayed. This was how I derived it based from when an SSS accounts admin did a statement for me. It’s best described through the example below:

    Penalty Rate = 3% (the current rate I know of)
    Cutoff Day = 10th (i.e. Employer SSS Number ends in 1) Day of the following month
    SSS Contribution = 845.00
    Applicable Month = Jan 2014
    Due Date = Feb 10, 2014
    Target Payment Date = May 14, 2014 (i.e. the date you plan to pay your SSS contribution plus penalty)

    FORMULA:
    No. of Days Delayed = {(# months difference between [Target Payment Date] and [Due Date]) * 30} + {(# days difference between [Day of Target Payment Date] and [Cutoff Day])}
    = {(# months difference between [May 14, 2014] and [Feb 10, 2014]) * 30} + {# days difference between [14th] and [10th])}
    = {(3 months) * 30} + {4 days}
    = {90 days} + {4 days}
    = 94 days

    Penalty Amount = [SSS Contribution] * [Penalty Rate] * {[No. of Days Delayed] / 30}
    = 845.00 * 3% * {94 / 30}
    = 79.43

    Hope this helps, or comment for any errors.

  49. Hi. Do you know what will happen if I fail to submit an r3? I havent submitted any r3 since January 2014 by mistake. Will there be any penalties or whatnot?

    Reply
    • The contributions (January to present) will not be posted in SSS database. Currently, there is no penalty but your employees would get mad and their SSS contributions would not be updated

  52. Our company is located in Consolacion, Cebu. Why is it that SSS Lapulapu can’t post our loan payments? Their last posting date for our loans payments was… January 2014!!! Our workers are now complaining and blaming our company since they can’t apply for new loans.

  54. Hi Ma’am! Found your post very helpful but can i ask just a few questions?

    1. Should i attach the SBR (Special Bank Receipt) and the R5 to the receiving copy?

    2. In the Transmittal Certification who will fill up or sign in ‘Received by:’, ‘Date Received:’, and ‘Transaction No.:’?

    3. If we were to fill up the above, can you give a sample on what should be put in?

    TIA.

    Reply
    • 1. Yes you must attach separate copies of receipt for the receiving copies
      2. That must be signed by the Authorized Signatory. If you’re not authorized, file SSS Form L-501
      3. You mean screenshots of my answers 1 and 2?

    • I suggest you resume it so you will enjoy your benefits and retirement benefits in the future. SS requires at least 120 months. Sayang naman yung dati if you will stop. Download the RS5 form online if you don’t have a copy anymore. 🙂 See the latest SSS Contribution Table in our posts

  56. Hello po. I have been paying my SSS contribution for about 4years from my employer before. But then, as soon as i have resigned from my past employer, that was March 31, 2013, i have stopped paying my contributions at exactly 1year and 2months now. I am planning to start paying again this coming June 2014 but for now, as self-employed. Can i still pay those unpaid months of contributions? If not, what will i do? Please, i need your expert advice about my case.

    • Resume your contributions by going to the SSS and update your membership. I think you cannot pay the old months anymore but you can resume your contributions

  61. hi Miss Fhel..

    I have this problem about my mother’s sss. I only paid one contribution last year. and just resumed paying the contribution this January. I’m wondering what would happen with her pension when she retires? sa pagkakaalam ko tapos na ung 120months niya, pero continue pa din niya pay ung contributions niya. but then, hindi ko nabayaran ung iba last year. maapektuhan ba ung dating or amount ng pension niya?

    thanks a lot in advance for your reply.

    Reply
    • Once she reached 120 months, according to SSS, she may be eligible to receive monthly pension when she reached 60 years old. The computation of amount will be based on the contributions she has made and CYS. SSS will show you it once you will apply for retirement pension

  62. Good morning po….itatanong ko lang po tungkol sa maternity benefits….expected date of delivery ko po ay sa November, 2014…Ang last contribution ko po as an “employed” member ay noong May, 2013. As of now, I’m self-employed since online teacher po ako.. Gusto ko pong malaman kung after ko pong mag-change ng status/membership ( from “employed” to voluntary/self-employed” at ipagpatuloy ko po ang contribution ko starting April this year…maka-qualified pa rin po ba ako for maternity benefits? Maraming salamat po.

    Reply
    • According to SSS Maternity Benefits a member can apply if she has contributed at least 3 months at the SSS within the 12-month period immediately before the semester of her childbirth or miscarriage. Take note of the following:

      -A semester refers to two consecutive quarters ending in the quarter of contingency.

      -A quarter refers to three consecutive months ending March, June, September or December.

      So you must have contributed 3 months BEFORE the 6th months (semester) prior your due date. All in 9 months before your due date in my understanding…

    • Update your membership status as Voluntary if you are not OFW anymore. Then pay your contributions (ask yourself how much you can afford every month) make sure you continue paying contributions para di maistop pagiging active mo and so that you’ll be eligible for retirements benefits in the future

  72. hi! thanks for this helpful post. my case is about my first salary loan, it was 15,000 minus the advance interest so i en-cashed 13,350. filed it on October 2010 but I figured out my company’s not paying my monthly amortization. problem was fixed though and 1st payment was a year after, October 2011. had 3 months missed payment because of maternity. now it shows online my total payment amount is 15,750. it was fine for me though it’s over the original amount loaned thinking it might be some kind of a penalty. but there still shows online that there was a past due and still a Total Amount of Obligation is 2,926.97. i dunno where there is coming from. just afraid that i have to pay that amount when i should be done with my loan payments. have any idea what was that for? this would really help a lot. tnx

  82. Hi mam,

    We have already paid for all the SSS contributions but due to the issues in the SSS website, we have not yet been able to post the contributions to our employees. Does late posting to employees have any penalties or as long as the receipts are dated accordingly, we do not have to pay anything else right?

    Reply
    • Late posting doesn’t have penalty fees (as of now) however uploading and submitting contributions and collection reports is a must for every employer to ensure updated posting. If there is web issue right now, we can still go to the SSS and submit USB or diskette reports anytime.

      Reply
      • Thank you mam for the very prompt response!

        Also last time I went to SSS they told me that due to my employee digit, I am only allowed to transact during Fridays. Does this hold true for just posting of payments?

        Also do they entertain such transactions on the new Saturday schedule?

        Reply
        • Not that I know any schedule like that because I don’t transact as self-employed. Maybe there is now a rule like that. I hope not. I only know those SSS digits correspond to deadline of payment

    • If your employer already uploaded R3 then it would always automatically be posted. That’s so strange with your case. If you are the authorized officer of your company to do the uploading, you can check it on your employer’s account. Or view if the R3 and R5 are reconciled. If there are balances, then there are months that were not yet posted

    • Your company/employer must post and submit R3 reports so your contributions must be posted. Posting is done automatically once the R3 are uploaded because it is done online. Ask your employer about R3 reports. If you have no clue about it, we have the complete instructions here at Philpad how to do that thing. Just browse over posts tagged as ‘SSS’

    • If you’re employed, you’ll know it from your payslip. Or just ask your employer. If you are voluntary member, choose your contribution which you can comfortable afford. Look at the latest SSS contribution table. I suggest you go to the SSS if it’s your very first time to contribute so they will assist you with this.

      • Hi, im on my 3rd year as a SSS member, meaning i have already 36 months (which is the requirement needed for salary loan) however, my actual premiums are not updated. Is it possible to attach in my SSS loan application the receipt of my employer’s SSS remittance?
        Thank you for answering

          • Hi! Good day! I was transferred to a new company. When i was with my previous company last year i acquired a loan which religiously my company is paying my monthly contractual payment. I Checked my loan status online and it shows my recent company is not paying on it. What would i do so that i can bring my salary loan to current.

          • I suggest you ask your recent company to update your loan and reflect payment every payroll. You must tell your recent employer about your existing loan if they don’t know it.

  112. Hi! I have a question about RS-5 payments. What if I paid my RS-5 thru a bank, do I need to report or submit the SSS Branch office copy to them?

    Reply
      • Thanks for your answer. Let me make a clarification though on my question. As an employer, I report my employee’s contributions thru the R3 file generator in my USB. But I also make contributions as a self-employed member, and I pay them thru a bank. The bank leaves me with a copy of the RS-5 and 2 copies of the Special Bank Receipts, one with the heading SSS Branch Office Copy and one with Payor’s Copy. Do I have to surrender the SSS Branch Office Copy to the SSS or report my payments to them? I ask this because when I asked the same question to the bank employee, he said that I didn’t have to report my payment anymore because it is automatically credited to the SSS database when I pay thru the bank. I just wanted confirmation on this. Thanks again!

        • I’m not sure about the latest processing of SSS posting for self-employed. If you have an SSS online account for Members (not employers) you can check your account and see if your contributions were posted properly. If they are, then you don’t need to submit the receipts to the SSS

  116. Hi Mam,

    My mom monthly pays her sss contribution as a voluntary member & always updated. Then just recently she told me that she had overlook the date in one of her monthly payments. Instead of putting July 2013 in the form, she mistakenly write June 2013 w/c she actually already paid last month.
    Does she needs to do a letter to adjust/ change the date, or just let it be like that. Does she needs to go the the SSS to inform them or the SSS system will just automatically update it.
    I heard about double posting…what is that?

    Wish you can help my mom.

    Thank you.

  118. Dear Ms. Fehl,

    I would like to ask again my previous question which you I duno If I missed out your answer. My question is if I am a government employee already paying for my GSIS, is it prudent to still continue my SSS as voluntary member? I work in a private company for few years before finally getting in a government office. Will there be any conflict if I have two pensions when my retirement comes? An SSS teller told me it’s ok. But I want to know the official legal opinion on this. Hope you can shed light on this. Thanks much!

    Lou

    Reply
    • One of the retirement benefits of GSIS is Portability Law (RA 7699). I call this GSIS + SSS combine) Under the scheme, you may combine your years of service in the private sector represented by your contributions to the (SSS) with your government service and contributions to the GSIS. There are specific requirements and benefits to eligible members for this. You asked if it’s prudent to still continue SSS? I think yes. It’s like having two insurance plan instead of 1. 🙂 I suggest you go to the SSS and ask about your future retirement having both GSIS and SSS. What I’m sure of is, there is really Portability Law. 🙂 Check out GSIS official website and go to Retirement (on the left sidebar) and go to Portability Law

  121. Hello,

    Good day!

    I just wanna ask how long does it take before SSS posts the monthly contribution of the members?

    I need to avail salary loan but I can’t since I need to complete 36 contributions before I could avail the said loan. Currently, I’m already on my 35th Month (april) and I’m waiting for May posting for my 36th contribution.

    It’s already July 11 now and yet my May contribution is still not posted.

    I believe we are being deducted on time but how come the postings are not updated?

    Need clarification regarding this matter.

      • Updating status is done personally because you will be submitting forms which you will sign. You can then pay your present contribution using your new status

        Reply
    • some companies do that because since you availed that loan while you are employed to them, your name is included in the r3 list of your employer and if you did not continue to pay that loan since you are separated, your employer will have delinquent payment that sometimes sss refuses to give yearly certificates to those who have delinquent accounts. But, it is between you and your employer to what both of you would agree.

  128. Ask q lang po about sa situation ng friend q.. She’s been working in a private company for more than 3 years. The company’s been deducting sss contributions from his salary for the past years. But recently, she found out that she didn’t have any contributions on that company and he’s not even have a record of employment based on the online account of SSS. So she immediately asked their HR about it. Their HR officer told her that the contribution was paid on the wrong SSS number (it was actually the sss number of her officemate and the company paid contributions on that SSS number twice every month) . The HR officer sent her proofs of payment bank satements and letters that they sent to sss about that mistake but they haven’t sent any proof that his payment was generated and accepted by SSS. It’s been 3 months now, since she complained. The only progress she sees so far was she was now employed to that company but the employment month was just from March 2013.
    My question is, if it is really possible for the company to fix her problem on her sss account?And if yes, how long will it take for them to fix it? Is it possible that they paid two SSS contributions to just one SSS number at once?
    Thank you.. Pls reply

    • Yeah usually every 10th of the month but there is now new SSS deadline allowed for everyone and it’s based on the last SSS digit (number). I have posted an article about the new SSS deadline here. You can check it out to know when is your company’s deadline. SSS usually gives consideration to late R3 submission reports especially to first timers. What is important is you paid before or on the deadline. Make sure you have paid on or before the deadline to avoid penalties and missing contributions.

  142. HI, got another problem, my friend used to own a store. So she had the sss employer number. After several years, her store got closed and she was employed to another company. The company asked her sss number and she gave her old company’s sss number(yep, the employer number). So she contributes every month to that number. When she got transferred again to another company, that was the only time she knew that she has been contributing for another person. Her old company’s employer number has the same number as another person’s employee number. How can she retrieve all her contributions to that other person to her new number? and WHY sss can’t just have 2 different series for employer and employee?

  143. hi, my employees are saying that their contributions were not updated since march 2012. So i contacted our accountant and she said i should pay up to dec 2012 as my employee wanted a loan. So i paid up to dec 2012. The other day my accountant sent me papers indicating that the contributions that we missed including the penalty. Including one month not paid 10 years ago. In short, the amount was huge. So here are my questions:
    1. she said the contributions will not show up until i pay the penalties, is that true?
    2. my plan is, to pay the present month, and then pay the rest of the penalties, can i do that?
    3. can the penalties be waived, or reduced? at least the one from 10 years ago. because the employees listed at that time are either retired, resigned or dead.
    4. any more advice?

I want to continue paying for my monthly contribution now. I tried registering online so i can check all my contributions, but it wouldn’t allow me to put OFW because it is not what was originally written on my application (which was ’employee.’) I tried changing it to ’employee’ then, but it would require me to put my employer’s ID no, which I do not know. Is there a way that I can register without having to put any of my ex-employer’s number? I have not been in contact with them for too long.

  147. if SSS doesn’t accept past months payments… What will happen to those months that you haven’t paid. (in my case, i missed the 1st 3 months for this year but have already paid current up until the end of year). What would be the impact of this in terms of my benefits and pension?

    Reply
    • Yes we cannot pay the months that we’ve missed as SSS is a type of insurance.. As to the computation of pension and retirement benefit, the total period of contributions is a factor. If you missed just few months, I think it has no big impact. You may ask the SSS to have a tentative computation of your pension in case you want it to have idea about planning for retirement.

    • I recommend you resume your SSS contribution and become an active member again because we need SSS when we retire and at the times of emergencies.. If you have stopped and you’re currently unemployed, you must switch to being a Voluntary Member. You must update your new membership status at the SSS branch near you and pay the present month or quarter. Choose the amount of contribution that you can afford and convenient to pay monthly. An SSS employee will assist you on this and will assist you too in case you are late in payment at the current period. You need to to this in person. God bless!

    • The data entered in the R3 when submitted in the SSS are posted on their system so when you check online, they will also be there na. Are you sure your employer really submitted the USB file and SSS entered them? Check the “received” stamped on your employer’s file copy and check if they also received PDF of the transmittal. Normally, your contributions and your profile will be updated when your employer have those and really passed them.

    • We cannot pay retroactively or the months that we have missed. Just resume your contributions and maintain being an active member by never missing paying

    • Lots of people have asked same question. I didn’t yet tried posting online because the feature is so new. And since I’m going to the SSS every time I pay quarterly to pass and submit R3 USB file (employer’s collection list), I do the R3 File Gen. way still

  161. Hi! I work in a company and this is regarding the posting for SSSsalary loans, they still didn’t post it from October 2012- December 2012. We give the payment for the three month this January 2013 . Our employees wants to file a salary loan however they can’t do that because there’s no post yet. What do we need to do? Thanks

    • Quarterly means every 3 months yes. It’s exactly this:

      First Quarter: Jan – March
      Second Quarter: April – June
      Third Quarter: July – Sept
      Fourth Quarter: Oct – Dec

      If you are asking about the deadline of payments, I will post them this week here.

  162. Hi, thanks for your post. Just want to ask for the following:
    1. Do you have any idea how long would take them to update the contributions online?
    2. Is there any problem if my employer just submit the R3 and R5 form without submitting the R1 and R-1A form? i’ve been working for her as a nanny of her children since 2010 but she just recently offer me that she will pay my sss contribution from the time i started and willing to pay for the penalty also. and in her R3 form she indicate my name as her employee. but she told me to process my own sss since this is for my own benefit and shes too busy at work.
    3. Do you have idea how to compute for the penalty? her last digit is 8?
    Im hoping for your response.
    thank you so much

    • MY answers to your questions:
      1. After I submit the R3 and USB file, my accounts are updated once they gave me back the USB. As to online input, I don’t know yet how long would they be entered. I didn’t try the online submission yet because it’s so new and fresh.
      2.She must also submit a file input of collection list in the form of USB or diskette. SSS have a new online feature but I didn’t try that one yet. Looking forward to try it once I knew the details how.
      3.As to penalties, they count the number of days from the deadline (where your SSS number falls) and the amount of contribution. When I was late, I just let someone from the SSS staff to compute it for me to avoid error.

  163. Hi. I am currently employed in a private company and this is regarding the posting dates for loan payment and monthly contributions. I supposed to renew my salary loan online and make it 2-month salary loan but unfortunately I was declined by the system due to 2 reasons: 1.) it says that I was enrolled in the loan condonation program so my renewal will be on May 2014 ; the things is I never applied for that program. I already sent mail to the sss brach near me and requested to delete my loan condonation application. 2.) My outstanding balance is still more than half of the my loan proceeds and the last payment considered was August 2012; well in fact my payment was updated monthly up to this month March 2013 but still not showing in the system. My questions now are 1.)How long would it be for my condonation application be removed in your system so I will be eligible in loan renewal. Is it true that only tarlac branch has the access to delete this kind of application? 2.) How soon will be my contribution be updated in your system coz according to our company hr, all contributions and loan payment were already transmitted in the sss office and they provided me the proof / documents such as the transmittal form received by the branch? I need to fix those issues in my account, so please let me know on how to proceed from here. thanks

    • Hi there! Honestly, I don’t know what to say because I’m not an SSS employee. I can only share my opinion. It sounds like the control of your account is based from SSS Tarlac. If the SSS employee advised you that, then it’s better to go there and fix your condonation. My grandma’s sister was also processing something in the SSS but she was advised to go to Tarlac because there’s something to be done there which I dont know what exactly. It sounds the same as yours. Maybe your account was originally from there so they need to verify more…

    • They must update their status as Voluntary Member before resuming their contributions. Go to the SSS to do this and to know the current amount they must pay.

    • If you are a voluntary member, you must submit a photocopy of your receipt after paying your contributions at the SSS so that they will be posted regularly. Regarding the USB file, employers do that since they have many employees. To individuals, I only see them submitting the receipt every time they pay. I think SSS will soon launch an online posting for all members to make everything more convenient.

      I suggest you go to the SSS and bring your receipts and submit the photocopy

      Reply
      • Bakit po kailangan pang isubmit photocopy ng receipt? Di ba may copy na sila ng pink slip? Parang redundant naman ata at nadefeat un purpose ng triplicate copy.

        Reply
        • I know 2 copies are left to SSS but those are for 2 departments only. The ones who receive the USB files needs the copy of receipt as soon as you submit them. We always need to show what they want. Should you want to justify that with them, I don’t know what would happen. I know someday, paperless would really be paperless…

    • I have never tried posting R3 reports online because the feature is so fresh and new. Since you have tried it already, did you input there in the system the receipt number of the SSS payment for the month? Wonder why it’s not reflected on the system right away considering things should be considered posted online already. I hope you reply coz I want to try the posting online way. 🙂

      • yes mam all the information were posted.. transaction/receipt numbers, applicable month, etc.. but when i tried to click “online inquiry->payment history->r3 totals..wala pong record.. but all the payments sa r5 were already posted by the system automatically.. itong r3 na lang talaga ang problem ko.. katulad ng iba pabalik balik ako sa sss dahil di nila maread ang usb ko.. so mas convenient talaga dito sana sa website.. but unfortunately mukhang may problem.. mam by the way..ito palang pinopost ko ay whole year 2012..di po kaya yun ang problem? thanks for replying..

        • I didn’t try the online way of posting employees monthly SSS payments for the R3 so I really don’t know what to say. Maybe there is a function there that an SSS staff need to approve so the R3 reports will be posted. I will ask about it once I go to the SSS. If ever you did it successfully, please share it here with us. Maybe because the feature in the system is so new so it’s not yet working completely. Let us wait and see 🙂

            How long does it takes for the ML2 & R3 reports to be posted online when you submitted it online?

            Thanks

  168. I’m the one paying for our employees SSS. And two of our employees have no SSS number yet, are there contributions will still be counted if I pass a R3 report with their names. I’m new with this by the way since the former secretary of the company was the one who used to do this things. Thank you!

    • You cannot input their account on the R3 program without their SSS Number. That’s the first requirement to have before anything else 🙂

    • I think they will reflect on your payment history and be counted. If you register at the SSS Online system (a.k.a. My SSS), you can check if both payments have been entered on your account.

  170. I’m a simple worker in one company,how much the company should deduct to my salary as my monthly contribution to the SSS?

    Reply
    • Yeah you can continue paying your contributions for the present but you can’t pay the ones you have missed. It is advisable to become active especially if you have contributed so much already in the past. SSS is a type of insurance, meaning a member must contribute continuously to enjoy his benefits and to ensure eligibility to benefits such as pension and retirement.

  172. How long will it take for uploaded contributions to be posted under the employee’s name and how many days after should we tell the employee to check online to see if payments has been posted?
    I was told that if you are able to upload contributions online , there’s no need for you to go to the sss office(where you have to go there by 6:30am to get a priority no. to be able to do usb since the sss here in cebu can only accomodate the 1st 100) for transmittal and uploading ..it can now be done in the comfort of home or office.

        Reply
        • look at the new payment form RS-5, if your having trouble follow the payment schedule, there’s a deadline in paying your contribution. For retirement pension the minimum requirements to avail it is that you have a 120 months contributions(ok lang kung may mga blanko sa hulog mo basta total of 120 months) and your at least 60yrs old (not employed and without any kind of business)

    • Yeah a member must be active in order to register at the online inquiry system or should she have paid at the latest 6 months. If you want to check out her contribution history, go to the SSS branch near you. Assist your mom and let her bring valid IDs. She can also continue her contribution by being active again and by updating her membership status

    • Bring her SSS ID card, NSO birth certificate and one ID like Senior Citizen’s ID. If she has no ID, try getting a Postal ID but I don’t know if it is accepted but perhaps with more supporting documents like NSO BC, SSS ID will let them consider her application.

  176. Chances are your contributions will not be posted asap. You can check your actual premiums online via MY SSS or check them at the SSS kiosk by swiping your SSS ID. If you found out your premiums were not posted, bring the receipts at the SSS office and request them to be posted. You must explain them the reason why you didn’t submitted the R3. God bless…

    • My inquiry is on SSS Payment Loan: the company I’m working for disregarded automatic salary deduction on loans- so I should be the one to personally pay for the monthly dues– I opted to pay at the bank, since many banks allow SSS payments. Question: After paying at the bank and get the receipt of payment, do I still need to submit the form to the SSS branch for posting?

      I have paid for my May bill last May 2 at a servicing bank. It is now June 6, but my online SSS record still does not reflect the payment. And to my surprise, it already incurred P250 interest amount. Gee, do I need to go to SSS branch to discuss about it? Just thinking of the hassle of going through a long pile of customers and malaking abala talaga.

      Reply
      • I suggest you submit the receipt personally so the posting will be done sooner. It will also help you to check out your SSS account and reconcile loan balances if any.

        Reply
      • Bring your reciept ML-1/SBR at the nearest SSS branch, then fill up “MAC-101, Go to the public assistance desk/counter and ask for posting of loan payment. Don’t worry about the interest and penalty that accumulated before just because your payment wasn’t posted, as long as you pay on time your loan balance will reconstruct once your payment is posted.
        P.S. – minsan late ang reporting ng bangko kaya di ka agad napopost, i do suggest you can pay at bayad center, o para mas sigurado ka na post ka agad mismo sa sss tellering ka magbayad hassle nga lang sa pila.
