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

    Note:
    Do not use BDO cash cards and other cash cards with maximum balance limits
    Kung halimbawa, 32k pesos ang benefit mo, hindi puedeng kargahin ng cash card na ang maximum limit ay 10k pesos lang.

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)

You can use your SSS UMID card…but validate it first 

If you have an SSS UMID card, you can use it to receive your SSS maternity benefit. Kelangan lang na ipa-validate mo muna ang UMID mo sa Union Bank kiosks na nasa SSS branch sa Diliman, Manila, Pioneer, Buendia, Cebu, Davao, o Baguio.

Remember maintaining balance requirements!
If it’s your first time opening a bank account, remember to ask how much is your required maintaining balance.
If you like to maintain your new account, do not withdraw the maintaining balance.

If you decide not to maintain your account, withdraw your balance in full so that the balance will not be wiped out by below-maintaining-balance penalties later on.

Once a bank account reaches zero balance or negative balance, it will automatically close.


I’ve heard about opening a bank account with only 100 pesos. Is this true?
Yes, but only with banks that accept and honor a Letter of Introduction (LOI) from SSS.
Ask for an LOI from SSS and find a bank from the list above that will honor your LOI from SSS.
I’ve read that PSBank and China Bank honor LOIs from SSS.
I think CTBC accepts SSS LOIs too, as it has long been offering Visa debit cards for pension releases.
