It’s now easier to apply for an SS Number with the enhancement of the Social Security System’s online application, which now offers support for uploading of required documents.
“Instead of visiting our branch offices, members can now upload supporting documents online such as a copy of their birth certificate from the Philippine Statistics Authority (PSA), marriage contract if married, or baptismal certificate if with children. They don’t have to submit the supporting documents via the drop-box system to make their SS Number application status permanent,” SSS president and CEO C. Ignacio said.
The complete list of primary and secondary requirements like ID cards and documents can be accessed through this link https://bit.ly/2WKiuvK.
The SSS Chief emphasized that uploading of basic supporting documents is necessary to obtain a permanent status of their issued SS Number and apply for SSS benefits and privileges.
“Considering the current quarantine protocols, new applicants and SSS members can visit the website at their preferred time and day to avoid experiencing long queues in our offices,” added Ignacio.
This process serves as a double purpose for SS Number application and My.SSS registration. Upon receiving the email for a successful SS Number online application, the applicant will also receive another email containing the credentials for their My.SSS Account, for activation within 30 calendar days.
