US Citizens Might Not Get Social Security Until 70 – SELaplana

If I am not wrong, Filipinos can retire at the age of 60. And at that age, senor citizens will start enjoying the benefits they paid, waited, and prepared for a long time. Just imagine this: you’ll retire at the age of 60; then immediately get the full social security benefits; and die at the age of 90. So, you’ll be enjoying your retirement for 30 years.

But in the US, Americans might not get their social security benefits until they reached the age of 70. The US government is working for this after the Obama administration received an advice from the IMF (International Monetary Fund) to cut the contain the budget deficit and debt.

According to Olivia S. Mitchell, a professor at the Wharton School, executive director of the Pension Research Council and director of the Boettner Center for Pensions and Retirement Research, as she seconded to the statement of the US minority leader, Rep. John Boehner, this move is just a fix to the social security system in the US. The fact is only few young Americans are paying for the tax, while elder Americans tend to live more longer. And during the financial crisis, the revenue fell, a lot of Americans retire, but only few are paying for the benefits.

SSS New Text-SSS Service – SELaplana

It can be a good news to the SSS members who want to inquire the SSS system about their loan eligibility and load balance and also the number of contributions because SSS has launched its new Text-SSS service wherein members can inquire the SSS system by simply texting to the Text-SSS number.

To start using the new service, a member should text the word “SSS” without quotation to 2910 or 2600 to register. After successfully registering, Text-SSS system will then give you your PIN.

The new service will be available starting on March 8, 2009.

As of today, I still don’t know how should we text the Text-SSS if for example we are going to inquire regarding the number of contributions that we had paid already.

And another thing is: We couldn’t use this service in getting our employee static information.

What is the purpose of online registration in the SSS website?

The main purpose of online registration is to ensure information security and to prevent identity theft. This is in accordance with Section 24 (c) of the SS Law, which provides that the members’ records should be kept confidential by the SSS and Section 31 of the Electronic Commerce Act or Republic Act No. 8792. The said provisions are cited below:

Republic Act No. 8792 (Electronic Commerce Act)

“Section 31. Lawful Access – Access to an electronic file or an electronic signature of an electronic data message or electronic document shall only be authorized and enforced in favor of an individual or entity having legal right to the possession or the use of the plaintext, electronic signature or file and solely for the authorized purposes. The electronic key for identity or integrity shall not be made available to any person or party without consent of the individual or entity in lawful possession of the electronic key.”

Republic Act No. 8282 (Social Security Law)

“Section 24. Employment Records and Reports. – (c) The records and reports duly accomplished and submitted to the SSS by the employer or the member, as the case may be, shall be kept confidential by the SSS except in compliance with a subpoena duces tecum issued by the Courts, shall not be divulged without the consent of the SSS President or any official of the SSS duly authorized by him…”

The SSS Maternity benefit that we are talking here is actually the benefit that the Social Security System of the Philippines offers to its female members.

From the SSS definition, the maternity benefit is a daily cash allowance granted to a female member who was unable to work due to childbirth or miscarriage.

Here’s the info from the SSS website:

What are the qualifications for entitlement to the maternity benefit?

  1. She has paid at least three monthly contributions within the 12-month period immediately preceding the semester of her childbirth or miscarriage.
  2. She has given the required notification of her pregnancy through her employer if employed, or to the SSS if separated, voluntary or self-employed member.

The answers above answer the questions like:

  • How many sss contribution should i make to claim for maternity benefit in the philippines?
  • How many months should I pay my SSS contribution to avail the Maternity benefits?

Is the voluntary or self-employed member also entitled to the maternity benefit?

Yes, A voluntary or a self-employed member is entitled to the maternity benefit provided that she meets the qualifying conditions.

How much is the maternity benefit?

The maternity benefit is equivalent to 100 per cent of the member’s average daily salary credit multiplied by 60 days for normal delivery or miscarriage, 78 days for caesarean section delivery.

My Note: For example, if your average daily salary is PhP250.00 multiply it by 60 days (for normal delivery); Thus you will receive Php15,000.00. If in caesarean section delivery, you’ll receive PhP19,500.00.

How is the maternity benefit computed?

  1. Exclude the semester of contingency (delivery or miscarriage). A semester refers to two consecutive quarters ending in the quarter of contingency. A quarter refers to three consecutive months ending March, June, September or December.
  2. Count 12 months backwards starting from the month immediately before the semester of contingency.
  3. Identify the six highest monthly salary credits within the 12-month period. Monthly salary credit means the compensation base for contributions benefits related to the total earnings for the month. Please refer to the table below.Range of Compensation
    Monthly – Salary – Credit
    1,000 – 1,249.99 – 1,000
    1,250 – 1,749.99 – 1,500
    1,750 – 2,249.99 – 2,000
    2,250 – 2,749.99 – 2,500
    2,750 – 3,249.99 – 3,000
    3,250 – 3,749.99 – 3,500
    3,750 – 4,249.99 – 4,000
    4,250 – 4,749.99 – 4,500
    4,750 – 5,249.99 – 5,000
    5,250 – 5,749.99 – 5,500
    5,750 – 6,249.99 – 6,000
    6,250 – 6,749.99 – 6,500
    6,750 – 7,249.99 – 7,000
    7,250 – 7,749.99 – 7,500
    7,750 – 8,249.99 – 8,000
    8,250 – 8,749.99 – 8,500
    8,750 – 9,249.99 – 9,000
    9,250 – 9,749.99 – 9,500
    9,750 – 10,249.99 – 10,000
    10,250 – 10,749.99 – 10,500
    10,750 – 11,249.99 – 11,000
    11,250 – 11,749.99 – 11,500
    11,750 – 12,249.99 – 12,000
    12,250 – 12,749.99 – 12,500
    12,750 – 13,249.99 – 13,000
    13,250 – 13,749.99 – 13,500
    13,750 – 14,249.99 – 14,000
    14,250 – 14,749.99 – 14,500
    14,750 – O V E R – 15,000
  4. Add the six highest monthly salary credits to get the total monthly salary credit.
  5. Divide the total monthly salary credit by 180 days to get the average daily salary credit. This is equivalent to the daily maternity allowance.
  6. Multiply the daily maternity allowance by 60 (for normal delivery or miscarriage) or 78 days (for caesarean section delivery) to get the total amount of maternity benefit.

For example, let us say that an SSS member gives birth in December 2004.

  1. The semester of contingency would be from July 2004 to December 2004
  2. The 12-month period before the semester of contingency would be from July 2003 to June 2004
  3. Let us assume that the six highest monthly salary credits are P15,000 each. Thus, the total monthly salary credit would be P90,000 (P15, 000 x 6).
  4. The daily maternity allowance would be P500 (P90,000/180).
  5. The total maternity benefit due would be P30, 000 (P500 x 60 days) for normal delivery or P39,000 (P500 x 78) for caesarian cases.

Other questions:

  1. How to avail SSS Maternity benefit if has not contributed? According to the policy, a female member should have paid atleast 3 monthly contribution with a 12 months period and that she notified the SSS about her pregnancy. In other words, if a female member did not pay any contribution then it’s also impossible to receive the SSS Maternity benefit.

How many deliveries are covered under existing laws?

The maternity benefit shall be paid only for the first four (4) deliveries or miscarriages starting May 24, 1997 when the Social Security Act of 1997 (RA8282) took effect.

Can a member apply for sickness benefit if she has been paid the maternity benefit?

No. A female member cannot claim for sickness benefit for a period of 60 days for normal delivery or miscarriage or 78 days for caesarean delivery within which she has been paid the maternity benefit. As a rule, no member can be entitled to two benefits for the same period.

Is it necessary to notify the SSS of a member’s pregnancy?

Yes. As soon as a member becomes pregnant, she must immediately notify her employer (if employed) or the SSS (if separated/voluntary/self-employed) of such pregnancy and the probable date of her childbirth at least 60 days from the date of conception by accomplishing SSS FORM MAT-1 (Maternity Notification Form) and by submitting proof of pregnancy.

The employer must, in turn, notify the SSS through the submission of the maternity notification form and proof of pregnancy immediately after the receipt of the notification from the employee member.

Failure to observe the rule on notification may result to the denial of the maternity claim.

How would the claimant be paid the maternity benefit?

For employed members – the benefit is advanced by the employer to the qualified employee, in full, within 30 days from the date of filing of the maternity leave application. The SSS, in turn, shall immediately reimburse the employer 100 percent of the amount of maternity benefit advanced to the female employee upon receipt of satisfactory proof of such payment and legality thereof.

If the employee member gives birth or suffers miscarriage without the required contributions having been remitted by the employer, or the employer fails to notify the SSS, the employer will be required to pay to the SSS damages equivalent to the benefits the employee would otherwise have been entitled to.

For separated/voluntary/self-employed members – the amount of benefit is paid directly to them by the SSS.

What are the forms and documents needed in filing for maternity benefit?

1. For employed members:

  1. SSS Form MAT-1 (Maternity Notification) duly stamped and received by SSS;
  2. SSS Form MAT-2 (Maternity Reimbursement);
  3. Other documents:*Normal delivery – certified true or authenticated copy of duly registered birth certificate. In case the child dies or is a stillborn, duly registered death or fetal death certificate.

SSS.GOV.PH – How To Register to the Social Security System or SSS?

Questions related to registering the SSS or Social Security System in the Philippines:

When a person has secured an SS number does it mean that one is already an SSS member and therefore has the right to social security benefits?

No. Securing an SS number does not automatically mean a person is already covered as a member. One is considered a member when the employer has reported one for SSS coverage by the employer and has paid at least one month contribution as an employee. For self-employed, OFW or non-working spouse, they should have paid at least one month contribution. Securing an SS number does not mean automatic membership.

What is the effect of non-reporting and non-remittance of contributions?

To the Employee

The employee is still entitled to SS benefits even if the employer fails or refuses to remit the SSS contributions.

To the Employer

An employer who does not report temporary or provisional employees is violating the SS law. The employer is liable to the employees and must:

1. pay the benefits of those who die, become disabled , get sick or reach retirement age;

2. pay all unpaid contributions plus a penalty of three percent per month; and

3. be held liable for a criminal offense punishable by fine and/or imprisonment.

To the Self-employed Person

A self-employed person who fails to register with the SSS will also be fined and/or imprisoned.

However, in the event the self-employed person does not realize earnings in a given month, payment of SSS contributions for that month is no longer required.

To the Self-employed and Voluntary Member

A self-employed and voluntary member who fails to remit contributions after membership is approved, may pay the monthly contribution prospectively but is not allowed to pay contributions retroactively from the month no contribution payments were remitted.

In the case of the covered non-working spouse, if the person gets employed later, or becomes self-employed or an OFW, the membership shall be reclassified accordingly as employed or self-employed or OFW.

Can a member withdraw his membership with the SSS?

No. When a person registers for SSS membership in any capacity, either as an employee-member during employment, or as a self-employed or voluntary member the person becomes a member for life.

During such time that the member fails to remit contributions, the benefits and loan privileges provided by SSS can still be availed of for as long as the member meets the qualifying conditions for entitlement thereto.

What happens to the coverage of a member who has received a lump sum benefit for permanent total disability and is re-employed?

The recipient of a lump sum permanent total disability who is re-employed or has resumed self-employment or as an OFW or Non-working spouse, not earlier than one year from the date of disability, shall again be subject to compulsory coverage and shall be considered a new member.

Who are considered the legal dependents of a member?

The legal beneficiaries of a member are the legally married dependent spouse until he or she remarries, the dependent legitimated or legally adopted and illegitimate children, who shall be the primary beneficiaries.

In the absence of both primary and secondary beneficiaries, any other person designated by the member as the secondary beneficiary.

When a member loses the SS ID card or cannot remember the SS number, should the member secure another SS number?

No. The SS number assigned to a member is the lifetime number and must always be used in all transactions with the SSS. The member should not secure another number at any other time.

If the member wishes to secure another SS ID card and cannot remember the SS number, it is advisable to inquire from the nearest SSS office.

If a member has more than one SS number, this will cause delay in processing of the claim for benefits or loans in the future. Thus, it is important that a member should have only one SS number.

If a member has more than one SS number, it is important to write or visit the nearest SSS branch to request for the cancellation of the other number/s and consolidation of all of the contributions under the retained SS number. From then on, the retained SS number should always be used in all transactions with the SSS.

How To Get SSS Employee Static Information?

Getting SSS Employee Static Information

Here’s how you can get the SSS Employee Static Information:

1) Visit the SSS office

The surest and easiest way to acquire copy of the SSS Employee static Information is to visit the nearest SSS (social Security Services) branch office. Ask the information officer on how to get this over the counter and follow the instructions given to you.

However, often times the SSS employees will just tell you to do the method number 2 below.

The website of the SSS can be accessed by logging into www.sss.gov.ph and just follow the links their.

However, most of the time, this website is down. I don’t know what’s the problem, but I think, it’s because of the huge traffic coming into the website.

Anyway, the site is not down at all the time. You can still access it at night or at midnight (Philippine time).
