Great news, Paying your sss contribution is now much easier because you can now pay it through bpi bank online. You only need to follow 4 simple steps to complete the whole process.
Individual members such as OFWs, voluntary, and self-employed can generate a payment reference number (prn) using the sss mobile app. Afterward, the app will redirect you to the bpi site to proceed with your payment. Easy right?
For each transaction, BPI will charge you 15 pesos convenience fee if you choose this payment option. But it is worth it because it is still cheaper than the cost of back and forth jeepney fare going to any sss branch to do over the counter transactions. Aside from that, traveling nowadays is time-consuming and stressful hahaha.
To pay your sss contribution in Bank of the Philippine Islands (BPI), you only need to fulfill these two requirements.
First, is you have to install the sss mobile app to generate your prn. You can download it at www.sss.gov.ph or in ios AppStore and Google play. Also, your sss number is already registered online at the my.sss portal.
Second, is you should be able to access your bpi account online. I suggest that you visit your bpi branch so they can assist you with this matter. Basically, their staff will help you to enroll your account online so you can enjoy the perks of online banking such as funds transfer, paying your bills online, and as well as buying prepaid cellphone load online.
