  1. how many day before the reimbursement will reflect on my bank account?

  2. Sss said its one and a half month.

    1. Hi Tegie, thanks a lot for sharing helpful information. Hi Cherry, Yes, it's from 1 month to 2 months.

    2. Is there any chance na mapaaga?

  3. Can i used my husband atm account instead? i mean instead of applying new bank account ill just used my husband atm where the maternity reinbursement will be deposited?

    1. Deposit of SSS maternity benefit into husband's account: Sorry, kelangang account mo kasi dapat matched yong name ng SSS member at name ng bank account owner.

  4. Can I request a check instead since don't have an existing savings account? Thanks

    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.

  5. Hello, may I ask how can i check if the check has already been settled in my online bank app? Thanks.

    1. Hi Anne: Login into your bank's online app and check your balance from time to time.

  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.

  7. Hi, ask ko lang po pwede po ba bdo savings account ang gamitin to get the sss maternity benefit, i know wala sya sa listed na accredited banks, but its a personal savings bank account of my wife and she just recenlty open and deposit to it, para hnd na sya mag open at magdeposit ng panibago na naman account. Thanks in advance.

  8. Goodmorning po..ask ko lang po sana kung paano po kaya malalaman ang check number po ng reimbursement ko for maternity leave..thanks po

    1. Hi Beverlyn, meron ka bang 3 or more monthly SSS contributions within October 2015 to Sep 2016? If yes, oo, qualified ka for maternity benefit

  10. how about po those employed person,through check or atm po ba ang sss maternity benefit nila kapag na release na?

    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.
