The online platform of SSS indeed has a lot of advantages. If you are not yet registered, just follow this complete step-by-step guide on how to register your SSS account.

1. Go to https://sss.gov.ph.

2. Under ‘Not Yet Registered in My.SSS’, click ‘Click Here‘.

In my case, I registered using the Payment Reference Number which is found on the receipt when I paid my contribution at the SSS branch.

4. Fill out the User Registration Form with all the required information.

5. A confirmation message will show up on the screen if your registration is successful.

In my case, I received the email notification after 5 minutes.

6. Check your email inbox for the system notification from SSS. It should come  from web.notifications@sss.gov.ph with the subject, SSS Web Registration. It contains the User ID and the link to activate your SSS online account or My.SSS. 

Take note that you need to activate your account within 5 working days, otherwise, the activation link will expire and you will need to register again.

7. Click the Activation Link in the email (below your User ID). Or, right click “clicking here” and copy link to your preferred browser (Internet Explorer, Mozilla, or Google Chrome).

This is the page where you’re going to set your Password.

Take note of the following when setting your password:

  • Length must be 8-20 alpha-numeric characters.

7 Tips for Successful Registration to My.SSS

  1. Use Internet Explorer to open the SSS website. While you can view the website using other browsers, it is specially designed to work on Internet Explorer that’s why it’s highly recommended by SSS.
  2. Before you register, make sure you have the required information such as the SS number or Reference Number to make the registration easier to accomplish.
  3. Enter the correct information on the registration form. Your personal information must match with the SSS records.
  4. Use an email address that is active, accessible, and has not been previously used to register to SSS.
  5. Activate your SSS account within 5 days to avoid repeating the registration process.
  6. Set a password based on the given guidelines.
  7. Write down your User ID and Password in your notebook or in a safe excel file for your reference.



To keep your account safe, don’t share your account and login information to others. If you log in to the SSS website using a public computer, make sure to log out from your SSS online account after.

It’s important that you access your account regularly to see your contributions and loan statements. This will help you ensure that your contribution and/or loan payments are posted accurately.

Tips on How to Successfully Register for SSS Online Account


CLICK HERE TO READ: 2018 Complete Step-by-Step Guide to Register your SSS Account Online

I was overwhelmed with the unexpected number of comments and private emails that I received on my post about  How to Register or Sign-up for SSS ONLINE Membership Account.

Most if not all of us want to register online to be able to access our SSS account without having to go the branch personally. However, there are some challenges/issues that we might encounter during the process so I wrote this post to somehow help address these issues by doing it myself and sharing some possible workarounds based from my experience. 

And since SSS updated the looks of their website and the post that I’ve previously written was based from the old one, I decided to register again (using my MIL’s account) and took screenshots so that I could share it to those who need it. And hopefully it helps.  So here we go..

1. Go to https://www.sss.gov.ph/

If this is your first time to register, Hit “Click here”

2. Fill out this form with the required information, enter the code at the bottom, and hit Submit.

 3. Once you hit Submit, this small box will appear and just hit OK to continue.

This is where most online applicants/registrants (including myself) encountered issues and got stuck.

If you’re using Google Chrome, Safari, Mozilla or any other browser except IE when you accessed the website, then that may be the culprit.

So here’s the TIP: Open Internet Explorer (IE), do steps 1 and 2, and hopefully this solves the issue. The cause? Well, not sure  but SSS recommends using IE because that’s where this website works best.

4. Enter an email address that has never been used/registered on this website. 

This is another issue that some registrants had encountered (including myself again). 

Like I said earlier, for the sake of creating this post and taking screenshots of the procedures, I tried to register using my MIL’s SSS account. And because she doesn’t have an email address, I tried to use mine and this error message in red was what I got. So again, here’s the TIP: use a different email address or better yet, sign up for a new one if you continue to receive this error message.

5. As soon as the email address that you entered is accepted, you’ll see this confirmation and just follow what it says. 

how-to-register-SSS-online-membership

6. Check your email and click on the link that was sent by noreply@sss.gov.ph to proceed with your registration.

how-to-register-SSS-online-membership

7. Fill out all the required information for the Online Member User ID Registration. Follow the instructions/notes carefully and hit Submit.

Your registration application will then be validated by SSS and you will be informed of the validation results through your email. It took me an hour the last time I tried it. I just can’t proceed with this application because my MIL is a voluntary member who has not paid her contributions in years and has no available receipts of her previous payments which is required here.

 8. Once you receive the confirmation in your email, you may now login to your SSS online account and start viewing your contributions, loans, etc. Feel free to explore the different features on the website.
