      Hi Sir,
      As stated in Item No. 3, we can only increase our MSC only once in a given calendar year and by one salary bracket only from the last posted MSC, with some exemptions. Please read the exemptions under Item no. 3

        Aljo, you can immediately jump to the highest braket without problem if and only if you are below 55 years old… see circular memo 2015-07 item#1

    Hi Janice.
    Thanks for these helpful info. I just have to consult you though, I went overseas since Oct 2014 and prior to that, I was employed. Now, itutuloy ko na sana yung contri ko but I want to know how much do I pay as an OFW. May hihingin bang docs si SSS if ever I choose to pay this amount, etc? Hope you can help. TIA!

    • Jun narciso says:

      you have to change your status from employed to voluntary or ofw, kailangan mo magpakita ng compensation information para malaman nila kung san ka puwedeng bracket then after a year puwede ka na mag increase ng 1 bracket hanggang sa maximum

    Ma’am my mother is contributing as a voluntary member and I am the one who make the contribution. She is turning 57 by October of this year. Since 2 years ago, I gradually increase her contribution by two bracket whenever I can.
    This the contibution I made -increasing
    Jan-Mar 2014 is P550.00, Apr-Sep 2014 is P605.00, Oct 2014 is P715.00, Nov 2014 is P825.00, Dec 2014 is P935.00
    Jan-Jun 2015 is P1,045.00, Jul 2015 is P1,155.00, Aug 2015 is P 1,265.00 and I am planning to increase it monthly by 2 bracket until I reach maximum of P1,760.00.

    If according to SSS response to your blog, indicate there that 55yrs old and above can only increase contribution once a year. What will happen to my mothers contribution? What is the best thing I can do with these? I want her to get high amount of pension when she reach her 60. Please advise me. Thank You so much. Hoping for your positive response.

    Sa case po ng father ko, dati daw po P84 lng contributions nya. Then nagOFW po sya, for more than 10 yrs maximum binayaran nya. Total of 22 yrs po ang contributions nya. Hndi nman po nmin alam na bawal ang gradual increase ksi pag nagbayad ka sa sss wla nman sila sinasabi basta tanggap lang ng tanggap ng bayad. Nung nagfile sya ng pension 6000+ lng ang monthly pension nya samantalang yung uncle ko 500+ lang ang monthly contributions nya pero nasa 9000+ ang nakukuhang pension. 2 times nmin pinarecompute sa sss, ganun daw po tlga. Kung may reklamo daw po kailangan pa magpunta sa head office. Eh nsa province pa po kmi at senior citizen na ang tatay ko, ayw na ayaw bumibiyahe at pumipila at knowing ang government service natin, for sure pabalik balikin ka lang. Tingin nyo po ba tama ang computations ng pension nya o may mali po. Salamat

        if kevin is paying 1760 monthly contribution in which ang monthly salary equivalent is 16000, papaano pong nangyaring 9900 lang ang pension makukuha nia?

  11. Maui says:

    Hello. Is this still true? Gradual pa din ang pag increase? Or i can go from min 110 to max 1760 in an instant? Parang i read a comment in your other blog post na pwede na yung hindi gradual.
