Here is a simple guide on how to apply for your SSS account online through my.sss. There are lots of advantages if a member would be able to register their account online.
Members can access exclusively their membership status, contribution details and can even request copies of their records if necessary. Members can also do the online transactions and set appointments to their sss branch.
All of the mentioned could be performed any time, anywhere, even after office hours (provided there is internet connection).
In order for members to have those privileged, his/her should register their sss numbers and provide own username and a password to access their online sss account.
Here is a simple guide on how to register their account via my. sss online:
Go to sss.gov.ph and look for a picture similar to what seen below:Choose the type of user you are into then submit: Supply the required field such as SSS number, personal details and email address. Email address should be created with yahoo to avoid any other problems. After that, an email will be sent to the supplied email address to confirm ownership and to continue with the registration process. Input again additional information such as preferred user ID and preferred password to use in accessing your sss account later on. Members were asked if he/she is an sss pensioner. Choose the options (yes / No) applicable to your status.
For none pensioners, fill up the necessary information depending on your status. Supply the receipt number if a self-employed, voluntary, non-working spouse, or if working overseas (OFW) which is found on the RS-5 form usually the number starts with CB plus the 6 digit number (CB000000).
Then submit. Once registered head again to sss.gov.ph and log-in. (You can now access your personal records online). After the registration, I suggest familiarizing oneself with the site to minimize concerns with your account.
