When and Where to Pay your SSS Contributions as Voluntary Members

I’m currently a voluntary member of SSS or the Philippine Social Security System, and I pay my contributions quarterly. Today is July 10 and it is the last day to pay my contributions for the last quarter which includes the months of April, May, and June 2015.

I went to SM, where I usually pay my SSS contribution through their Business Services, and it’s the nearest and most convenient payment center for me. I was lucky because I was accommodated immediately and I didn’t have to wait and line up in long queue like what I normally do.

In this post, I will share with you some information and tips on how and where to pay your SSS contributions as a Voluntary, Self-employed, or OFW member.

  1. How much should you pay for your SSS Contribution?

Your contribution is based on how much your compensation is. Below is the latest SSS Table of Contribution of 2015. The minimum contribution for SE (Self-Employed), VM (Voluntary Member), and OFW (Overseas Filipino Worker) is Php 110 if your compensation ranges from Php 1,000 to Php 1,249; while the maximum is Php 1,760 if it ranges from Php 15,750 and higher.

  1. When to Pay your SSS Contribution?

For Household Employers, Self-Employed, and Voluntary Members except OFW members, you can pay your contributions on or before the deadline. The payment deadline falls on the month following the applicable month or quarter.


For example in my case, since I need to pay my contributions for the previous quarter including the months of April, May, and June, the payment deadline is in July. What specific date in July? Here’s the guideline.

  • If the 10th (last) digit of your Social Security Number ends in 1 or 2, the deadline is on the 10th day of the following month.
  • If the 10th (last) digit of your Social Security Number ends in 3 or 4, the deadline is on the 15th day of the following month.
  • If the 10th (last) digit of your Social Security Number ends in 5 or 6, the deadline is on the 20th day of the following month.
  • If the 10th (last) digit of your Social Security Number ends in 7 or 8, the deadline is on the 25th day of the following month.
  • If the 10th (last) digit of your Social Security Number ends in 9 or 0, the deadline is on the last day of the following month.

In my case, the last digit of my SS number is 1, and the deadline of my payment for the last quarter (April, May, June) is the 10th of the following month, and that’s today, July 10.

SSS payment deadline guide

Why is it important to know the payment deadline?

Because if you miss to pay on or before the deadline, you won’t be able to pay your contributions for the previous months. SSS does not accept retroactive payments. 

  1. Where to Pay SSS Contribution as a Voluntary Member?

There are several payment centers and options where you can pay your contributions.

SSS Payment Facilities

  • SSS Main Office – Cashiering Department
  • SSS Branch Tellering Counters
  • CIS Bayad Centers
  • SM Business Centers
  • SSS-accredited Commercial Banks

For Members Abroad

  • I-Remit
  • PNB Overseas Payment System
  • Ventaja
  1. How to check if your payment was accepted and posted online?
  • Go to (preferrably with Internet Explorer)
  • Log in to your SSS Online Account (If you don’t have it yet, you have to register first. Click HERE to know how).
  • At the E-Services Page, hover your mouse over Member Info, and under that, click Actual Premiums. (Click HERE to see my video on this).

I also created a video to guide you on how, when, and where to pay your SSS Contributions.

      1. mam bakit po ganun hndi po ako mkaregister. Iam using mobile to browse internet, everytime I open the link on how to register it always shows the “unsecured” paano po yan.

    1. I believe we can’t pay SSS through BDO Online.
      I also checked it before, and it wasn’t one of the options.

  1. You can now pay your SSS contributions and loan repayments online! The first multi-bank payment gateway where you can transact in a secure, real time environment using your BancNet ATM card.

  2. Hi ms janice. Im planning to pay at sm for my salary loan. May i know how many days will it takes to post on my sss?

      1. hi mam janice! ask ko lng po if pde po mgbyad ng sss loan ko khit employed po ako? pra po mkpgloan agd ako. at ilang working days po ung posting? and khit saan po b pde mgbyad khit nd po s mismong hinuhulugan ng employer ko?

      2. most likely they update your sss payment online every quarterly or every 3months , that is what i noticed, and asked sss officers and they said they posted it almost every 3months

  3. Hi Janice!

    If I pay in Business Centers like you do, do I still use the usual payment form from SSS? Or they have their own form that needs to be filled out?


        1. Hello.ask ko lang po kasi po nag file na po ako ng mat 1 and mat 2 for my maternity bnetfies last june 18,2012 then ang sabi po sa akin nung corporate 1month daw po yun bago i deliver dito sa bahay,1month na po sya ngayon bakit po kaya hindi pa dumadating eh diba po matagal na ang 1month para dun yung sa iba nga po eh 2weeks lang sana lang po maintindihan din yung part ko kassi po kailangan ko din yung pera salamat po

  4. Hi Janice,

    My niece is currently not employed but I would like to help her contribute as a voluntary member to her SSS so that it will help her in the future. She already has an SSS number. Do you have a link to the SSS form so that I can see what type of information they are asking?
    Also, looking at the SSS contribution table, I would like to put the 495 pesos contribution. Does that mean somewhere on the form she has to put a monthly salary credit of 4500?

    1. Hi Janice,

      Also, as a voluntary member, what happens if she stops payment for a particular quarter? Is there anything stopping a voluntary member from stopping their payments?


      1. tama yan sini siguro nyo . bat gaoonn.. ang sabi nang nag subment kmi ng papers mag 2 weeks lng.. tapus nong na flow-up mga 2 to 3mos.. na naman . ANO BA TALAGAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA

  5. Hi Janice,

    Another question – My niece tried to register a login for my.sss. It keeps saying she has an invalid sss number. I noticed her sss number is only 9 digits. Is that normal? It was from back in early 2000 I believe when she got the sss number.

  6. Hi Janice,
    I recently resigned from my job to go into business .I’m planning to continue my SSS contribution as a voluntary member but I would like to continue paying the last amount of contribution my previous employer paid. With this, do I have to file something to change membership status or can I just go directly to any authorized payment centers to pay my contribution as voluntary? Bdw, base on my sss no. my payment date is on the last day of the month or qtr. I will be paying b4 Sept. ends. Thank you.

Add to that is i have a Salary Loan which i have not paid yet (imagine the accumulated penalties!).

I would deal with my loan next. Hoping to hear from you.

  23. Hi. I went to pay my mother’s SSS contribution at Savemore but the teller said the contribution of Php 1,760 was not an acceptable amount. I tried at another mall. Same thing. But I have paid 1,760 for the past 2 quarters of 2016 and now I’m passed the deadline date by 4 days. Is there no way to pay for the past quarter? I also looked at the contribution table of SSS it is still Php 1,760. She’s a voluntary member and we opted for the highest contribution.
