SSS Online Account: How to Register?

1. Go to the SSS official website at https://www.sss.gov.ph. It is recommended that you use the latest version of Internet Explorer (IE) as some features may not work in other browsers.

2. From the login page, look for and click on the “Click Here” button below the “Not yet registered in My.SSS?” callout.
3.
You will be asked to select one information from among those that you provided when you registered to SSS. Make sure to choose the information that you remember, such as the mobile number that you used when you registered.

4. On the next page, fill out the form with your personal information.
5. At the bottom of the form, enter the information that you selected from the previous page, if you selected Mobile Number, you will get this field:

Likewise, the fields for the other options look like these:

Savings Account Number / Citibank Cash Card / UBP Quick Card / UMID – ATM Saving Account
UMID CARD
Employer ID Number / Household Employer ID Number
Payment Reference Number / SBR No. / Payment Receipt Transaction Number

(NOTE: as mentioned above, you will only need to select one. I used mobile number for this example as that is the easiest to remember.)

6. Lastly, enter the auto-generated code in the box, check the Terms of Service acceptance, and click Submit.
You will get this message after clicking “Submit”:If you will not receive the email in 30 minutes, it may take up to 24 hours. In the email, you will be provided a link to activate your account. Make sure to use the recommended version or the latest version of IE to open the link. Upon activation, you will be asked to assign a password for your account.

After logging in, it may take sometime for your SSS details to be displayed under the E-Services tab. All information sometimes appear as “null” at first. Don’t worry, they will auto-populate after a few minutes.

The online account is very useful for online transactions (of course). From there, you can view your SSS profile, employment and contribution history, details of your existing loan if there are any, or even to actually apply for a loan.

How to Know if You Have an Existing SSS Loan

Whether you are wondering if you still have a loan balance or just want to find out if you can now renew your loan, calling SSS to verify or visiting one of their branches would be the best options. But if you have an online account, these information are just a few clicks away. If you do not have an online account yet, go to https://www.sss.gov.ph/ and register. Make sure that you are registering as a “Member” not as an “Employer. Also, use the latest version of Internet Explorer as some of the website functions do not work with other browsers.

Upon logging in, click on “E-SERVICES” and select “Apply for Salary Loan”. If you have an existing loan, the following message will appear:

From here, you can also check your loan balance and other details such as when the loan was submitted, your monthly amortization and the like. If you go to “Inquiry” you will find your profile details, and you can get a complete view of your total contribution along with your monthly premiums.




How to Apply for an SSS Loan Online

Applying for an SSS loan has been made easier as it can now be done online. Normally, the process involves submitting the loan application form to the HR coordinator in your company, and you will be notified when the check arrives.



Now, you don’t need to fill-out forms. You simply login to your online SSS account and submit the application from there. If you do not have an online account yet, you may create one by going to https://www.sss.gov.ph/. They recommend that you use the latest version of Internet Explorer (IE) as some items may not display on other browsers.

NOTE: The salary loan submitted online by an employed member will be directed to the employer’s My.SSS account for certification, hence, the employer should also have an SSS Web account.

1. Login to your account. Make sure that you are logging in as Member, not as an Employer.

2. Click on “E-SERVICES” and select “Apply for Salary Loan“.
