  • Bank Branch Address
  • Zip Code of Bank Branch
  • Bank Account Name
  • Bank Account Number

   - 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.

  6. Hi question lang po i filed my sss maternity last feb 22,2017. Tas thru sss portal it nalaman ko na credited na daw nung march 22 pa. From time to time chinecheck ko wala so i called sss sabi 8-10days daw un bago pumasok. So i waited pero on the 10th day wala. Chineck ko na nagclose na ung bank account ko. ๐Ÿ˜” ano po dapat gawin? Nag trace din si rcbc wala daw floating or forwarded na check under my name from sss. Sana po matulungan nyo ako. Thanks in advance.

    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)

  34. Hi SSS. I just wanna verify po. I was hopistalized and diagnosed of hiatal hernia and gastritis. My doctor given me 16 days to be off to work due to my sickness. When I went to SSS to file my benefits the SSS doctor told me that the maximum days given to Gastritis sickness is 7days. But she reiterated that I can file for extension since my doctor advise me to rest for more than 7 days. My question is how many days of extension I can file? Shouldnt it be based on the doctor's advised or it depends on the doctor working for SSS. Coz the SSS doctor only approved 12 days. What happened to the other 4 days? Is it no longer covered for my benefits? I hope you can shed light in this.

    ReplyDelete
  35. One of the sss personnel told me to present LOI and pay only 100 pesos to be able to open an account for my maternity benefit. She also said that if i only have 1 valid id that would be ok as long as i have other valid documents to present marriage contract for example. All of those were unreliable when I went to the bank and said it should be minimum of 2,000..

  47. Hi Kimberly, usually mga one month lang. Ibig sabihin hindi in-advance ng employer mo sa iyo ang benefit mo? Hindi idinaan sa payroll? Kung hindi naman, tanungin mo ang HR nio kung andian na ang benefit mo. Tanungin mo rin kung enrolled sila sa SMB-PB program ng SSS, meaning idedeposit ang benefit mo sa account ng employer, then ibibigay ng employer to you via check or via payroll.

    1. Hi Francois, go back to the branch where you filed your claim. Bring your acknowledgment stub. If you remember the officer who accepted your claim, go to that person and ask why your claim has no update online, and that SSS replied to your email and told you there's no record of your claim.
