How Will SSS Know My Bank Account?

You will write your bank account's details in your SSS benefit application form.

Here's the portion of the SSS Maternity Benefit Application form where you will write your account's details:




  • You will write these details:

  • Bank Name and Branch
  • Bank Branch Address
  • Zip Code of Bank Branch
  • Bank Account Name
  • Bank Account Number
  • Check if Savings/Current Account, UMID ATM Account or Cash Card
  • If Cash Card, write Validity date

SSS wants to make sure you are writing the correct bank account details, so bring with you:
   - Recent Deposit Slip with your name and account number (original and xerox copy)
   - Actual ATM card
   - Photocopy of your ATM card (front and back)

    1. Palagay ko depende sa branch o sa officer o sa batch. Na-observe ko kasi na merong tumatanggap through check at yong iba naman ay through their bank accounts. Sorry di ko alam kung ano ang pagkakaiba. Kausapin mo yong officer na tatanggap ng documents mo.

    1. Hi Eunice: Did you mean na na-closed na yong account mo? Tanungin mo yong RCBC branch mo kung puedeng ireactivate mo yong account mo, at kung meron bang babayaran. Kasi magtatagal kapag papalitan mo sa SSS yong bank account number na naibigay mo na sa SSS.

    1. Hi Debbie Ann, kung ang company mo ay enrolled sa SMB-PB program, your benefit will be given to you through your employer's bank. Pedeng ibigay ng employer mo through your payroll, or pede naman nilang i-advance through payroll (which is ito dapat yong tamang proseso -- yong i-advance nila ang benefit then ireimburse nila with SSS)

  11. Hi Caren Cabral: Enroll in SSS online service para makita mo yong check number ng maternity benefit mo.
