How to Pay for Your SSS Contribution and Loan Payments During a Pandemic

Being on lockdown must not be a reason for you to miss your SSS contribution and loan payments.  Your SSS account must remain active and updated even while you are working from home so you are assured of your claims and benefits when the need arises.  I have a friend who was recently diagnosed with cancer and was able to claim a substantial amount from his SSS disability benefit, all because he maintained an updated record with SSS. 

So how do you keep your payments updated when your movements are limited and do not want to go to places crowded places like banks and government offices? Easy.  Pay online!

SSS has partnered with various banks and payment centers to make paying contributions and loans much easier, convenient, and safe for their members.  And then again, if you are employed by a private company, your employer must ensure that your monthly contributions are properly remitted to the SSS.  This article can help self-employed members, OFW members, kasambahay employers, housewives, and volunteer members keep their accounts up-to-date even when their area is on quarantine.

Read on.

Cashless payments, and those that we can make right at the comfort of our homes, matter a lot during these challenging times. The pandemic has changed so many parts of our lives and yet life demands that we continue pressing on. And so we do.  And the availability of online payment channels for life’s demands such as SSS contributions and loan payments is a blessing we know we can’t ignore.

So, thanks to SSS for making paying so much easier and simpler, and safer for all of us.
