SSS had updated their online inquiry system. To be able to view the static information SSS member needs to register to their system before he/she can start using the SSS online inquiry.
Three years ago when I was still working in local company in Philippines, I have no direct access to my SSS contribution. For 5 years of working as a Product Development Engineer in Hayawaka (EPZA, Rosario Cavite) I can only see the SSS deduction in my payslip every 15 days. Should I need to check my contribution I must go to the nearest SSS office, or consult our SSS liason officer to verify the actual amount of my SSS which is very tiresome that requires lots of leg work.
Imagine the feeling of seeing SSS deduction twice a month without a proof if it is indeed added to your SSS account or not. Now add the media coverage of employers who are violating the SSS law. I tell you the feeling is uncomfortable. I’m lucky my previous company, Hayakawa doesn’t belong to these deliquent employers as reported in the news.
If at that time local employee like me is hesitant on the SSS contribution, how much more for the Overseas Filipino Worker SSS members? Trully it is more frightening as they are remiting a portion of their money blindly for the future security.
I’m glad that today, there is more assurance. With the availability of SSS online system, Filipino overseas can easily track their contribution. Premium SSS is available online and any SSS member who have internet access that can connect to SSS web page can simply see their premium contribution, how much have their contributed and so on. Here is the SSS online inquiry access page.
Lets supposed that you log on to the SSS online system, Inside the SSS online inquiry system, you’ll see the employee static information. Here you can see your SSS coverage, claim flag, and other important detail. Click the “Actual Premium” to check your actual number of contributions and total number of contributions in tabular form.
If you are a Flexi-Fund member you can also see your active fund here. By the way, Flexi Fund is the fund offer for Filipino Overseas that will accumulate certain amount tax free. I’l blog about SSS Flexi-fund later. There is Loan Status tab, Benefit Claims, eligibility and more.
If you are an SSS member and havn’t use the SSS online inquiry system yet then I highly recommend to log on in that site when you have time. Just to make sure if your previous employer really contributed the SSS. I heard that lot of employers were sued by SSS due to not paying the employees contribution. Who knows maybe your employer is one of them ..

I agree sa mga comment ng ating readers and I hope that SSS will make their site more user-friendly and that online transaction or SSS online inquiry navigation should have made easier.
Email was already sent to the sss email address mentioned above and sad thing is wala pong sumasagot sa email… I hope someone from the top rank of SSS realize the SSS online inquiry navigation problem or SSS online inquiry connection problem.
I think we should shout louder so they(the officer of SSS) can hear and realize this SSS online problem.
