So things have changed since I posted about checking your SSS contribution summary. The process in finding out has gotten a tad complicated.
1. Go to www.sss.gov.ph
2. Mouse over to My.SSS in the navigation bar somewhere on top of the page
3. Click Register
All of that will lead you to another page where you will be asked to identify yourself, whether you’re an Employer or a Member.
There’s also a link to the registration FAQ provided beneath the dialog, it would be a good idea to read that before you proceed so you don’t ask dumbass questions (see dumbass example all the way at the bottom of this post).
When typing in your SSS number, don’t add any dashes — just write the digits. There are ten digits in mine, I’m assuming it’s the same for everyone. Towards the end of the registration process, you will be asked to provide either an SBR NO. (the site says it’s found on the RS5 Receipt Form of SSS and it should be paid at least 6 months prior to the current date). You may also provide your employer’s ID, just ask your HR or whoever is in charge of your salary. If they don’t know, ask them who does and direct your inquiries to that person.
Make sure you read everything carefully and that there are no typos in the details you provide. Also keep in mind that the only special character they allow you to use in your password is the underscore and they prefer that you start the password with an alphabet letter.
For some reason, they also prefer that you provide a Yahoo email address, I guess they have issues with spam filters of other email accounts. I was tempted to provide my Gmail one, since I use Yahoo only for subscriptions, but why give it a reason to malfunction?
When you’re done filling in all the required fields, hit submit and if they’re satisfied with the information you’ve typed in, you’ll be directed to this awkwardly phrased message:
You have successfully sent your registration information to SSS. Please wait for the e-mail if your registration is successful together with the password.
Then you wait. It’s been over an hour and I still haven’t gotten the email with my computer generated password. I have a sinking feeling that I won’t get that email. I wish you all the best.
Bring on the dumb questions. Let me help you.
My name is so and so, can you please tell me what my SSS balance is, thank you, more power and God bless.
UPDATE: Whoa! I’m such an impatient pessimist! I just got my password and I was able to log onto My.SSS and see my contribution summary. Awesome!
