There are many of us who forget our SSS number. Some people have lost their SSS ID and cannot remember their SSS number because they never memorized it. Some have misplaced their copies. If you are one those people who want to check, retrieve, and verify their SSS number, this post is for you.
How to Verify SSS Number Online
As of 2017, the Social Security System does not have an online feature of SSS verification but I think it will be available soon. We will post the updates here. Right now, the other options that work in SSS verification are the following:
Verify through your Employer
You can ask your employer or your HR about your SSS number. They always keep a copy of it as they always need it on your monthly or periodic salary. Your employer also makes and submits reports about SSS contributions, loan payments and the like.
Verify by Checking your SSS E1 Form
If you have kept a copy of your SSS E1 Form (the pink form you issued to you in registering your SSS number before), you can find your SSS number at the upper left part of the form.
Verify through SSS Hotline
SSS members can contact the SSS hotline (SSS Call Center) by calling 920-6446 to 55 for any SSS member’s inquiry, support and assistance.
Verify at the SSS Member’s Assistance Section
You can go to the nearest SSS branch office to verify your SSS number. Make sure you are bringing your valid IDs. Apparently, they will also give you SSS Employee Static Info which is helpful in reviewing and checking SSS contributions.
Now that you know your SSS number, remember to keep a copy of it. I also recommend getting SSS UMID Card (it’s free) so you can always SSS identification with you. SSS UMID Card is also one of the most acceptable government IDs in the Philippines. Having one is very important and helpful.
