Getting “Error 404” when trying to Register your SSS Account Online?
My blog post on how to Register SSS Online Account has become a big hit and has even brought www.pinayinvestor.com to the first page of search engines using that specific keywords. My intention was only to share the instructions that I followed when I did it for my own account and for some family members, but I never expected that a lot of people would actually benefit from that simple post that I made. Aside from the comments, I also received a lot of private emails about this topic and I’m happy that I was able to help and answer their queries in my own little way.
I was very upfront when I said that I am not affiliated with SSS and that what I was doing was only to share what I know about the process based from my own experience. I even made some video tutorials and uploaded it on YouTube and it’s exciting to see the increasing number of views each time I check it.
Actually SSS (Social Security System of the Philippines) has its own YouTube Channel also and in fact, they have a number of video tutorials on various SSS processes and members’ concerns. Therefore, mine is not a new thing, but I appreciate the fact that a lot of people still visit my site for that matter.
This week, I received tons of comments and emails from various people who have similar concerns. They’re all getting this error once they submit the Registration Form.
“Error 404–Not Found From RFC 2068 Hypertext Transfer Protocol — HTTP/1.1:10.4.5 404 Not Found. The server has not found anything matching the Request-URI. No indication is given of whether the condition is temporary or permanent. If the server does not wish to make this information available to the client, the status code 403 (Forbidden) can be used instead. The 410 (Gone) status code SHOULD be used if the server knows, through some internally configurable mechanism, that an old resource is permanently unavailable and has no forwarding address.”
I wish I knew the answer or solution to this, but I honestly have no idea about this issue. Oftentimes, I would just advise them to try IE if they’re getting any error while in the process of registering their SSS Online Account, which works most of the time. But this error is different and I’m pretty sure it has nothing to do with the browser. It’s also possible that SSS is undergoing some kind of maintenance or updates on their website, but again I’m not sure about that.
And because I don’t know what to do with that error either, I sent an email to SSS and I’m hoping that they would reply or have this issue fixed as soon as possible.
I made this post to address the questions and inquiries that I received from our fellow citizens regarding this issue. I just thought that answering them through this blog post would be much better than responding to their comments and emails one by one. By the way, this is a free information and I don’t get paid for doing this, but I love the idea that it somehow adds value to me as a person and as a blogger.
So for those who have emailed me or posted their comments on my previous posts, sorry that I could not reply to each one of you, but I’ll try my best to update this post once I receive any updates or solutions from SSS or from anyone who knows about this issue. If this is caused by some updates on the website’s back end, then I’m sure it will be back up and running pretty soon.
