How to File SSS Maternity Notification for Voluntary Members

By March 22, 2020 No Comments

To assist moms or soon-to-be moms, I created this guide on how self-employed or voluntary member of SSS can file SSS Maternity Notification in order to avail their SSS Maternity Benefit.

Who are eligible to avail SSS Maternity Benefits?

The SSS maternity benefit is only offered to female SSS members. An SSS member is eligible to avail this benefit if:

  1. The member has paid at least 3 monthly contributions within the 12 months immediately preceding the semester of delivery (childbirth or miscarriage).
  2. The member has filed SSS maternity notification directly to SSS if she is a self-employed or voluntary member or given her employer (if employed) notice and proof of pregnancy.

How to File SSS Maternity Notification

This should be done at least 60 days from the date of conception or you confirmed your pregnancy. Or else, your maternity benefit application may be denied.

You can file for SSS Maternity Notification in three ways:

A. Thru SSS Branch 

Go to the nearest SSS Branch and submit the following documents:

  • SSS Maternity Notification Form (this is available in the branch or you can download it here).
  • Proof of Pregnancy (Ultrasound Result or any medical documents that can prove you are pregnant)
  • UMID (if you don’t have one yet, you can present any two valid IDs that shows your signature,  photo and date of birth)

Keep the Maternity Notification Form duly stamped and received by SSS since this is one of the requirements that you will present when claiming your maternity benefit.

Notes

For employed members, they need to submit these documents to your Employer (or through the HR personnel) and they will be the one to notify SSS about your pregnancy.

 

B. Thru SSS Website

  1. Login to My.SSS website. You need to register first if you don’t have an account yet.
  2. Go to E-Services and choose Submit Maternity Notification.

You don’t need to submit any documents when you file SSS Maternity Notification through SSS website. However, you might need to provide proof of pregnancy once you claim your maternity benefit.

 

C. Thru Text Notification

You must be registered to Text-SSS before you can file SSS Maternity Notification through SMS. To register, follow this format then send to 2600.

SSS REG <SS Number> <Date of Birth in MM/DD/YY Format>

Wait for a text message from 2600 containing your PIN. Then send another text message to 2600 following this format:

SSS MATERNITYNOTIF <SSNumber> <PIN> <Expected Delivery Date MM/DD/YYYY> <Total Number of Pregnancies (including this pregnancy)>

Notes

Each text costs Php 2.50 for Globe/TM and Smart, while Php 2.00 for Sun Cellular.

You don’t need to submit any documents when you file SSS Maternity Notification through Text-SSS. However, you might need to provide proof of pregnancy once you claim your maternity benefit.

 

What’s Next?

Keep the Maternity Notification Form duly stamped and received by SSS since this is one of the requirements that you will present when claiming your maternity benefit.

Employed members who can immediately get their maternity benefit through their employers while self-employed and voluntary members can only claim the SSS maternity benefits after giving birth.
