FREE: How to Get SSS E1 Form Online in 3 Easy Steps

The SSS e1 form is necessary if you plan to apply for an SSS number because it is part of your pre-employment requirement. On the other hand, you need the same E-1 form if you will apply for an sss number under voluntary membership such as a self-employed, unemployed spouse, or as an Overseas Filipino Worker (OFW).

The distinct difference between the two membership types is the information that you are going to input on the e1 form when you apply for social security number.

To give you an idea, if you will apply for sss membership as an employee, you have to fill out the Personal Data (Column A), Dependents and Beneficiaries (Column B), and Certification (Column D). You have to leave the “For Self-Employed / OFW /Non-working spouse” (Column C) blank.

Meanwhile, if you will apply for sss membership as a Voluntary, self-employed, OFW, or unemployed spouse, you have to fill out all columns from A to D.

The SSS Personal Records form (E1) has undergone a series of revisions. From what I have observed, in the old form, there is only Part 1 and there is no Column C.

On the new version, SSS divides the form into two parts and they include Column C which is for those who will apply for an SSS number as Self-Employed, OFW and Non-working spouse.

New members have the option to input their Tax Identification Number (TIN). For OFWs, they can input the telephone number that they use abroad. Moreover, sss has placed the location of the social security number on the upper right-hand side whereas it is located on the upper left-hand in the old form.

Getting a copy of your sss e1 form is a lot easier nowadays because you have the option to get it online. Unlike before, you need to always go to the sss branch to acquire a copy of it. In this post, you will learn the steps to get a PDF version online and the steps to print it into a hard copy.

You can get the SSS E1 form online on the website as well as in the satellite offices. If you choose the former, then you only need to do 3 steps.
