I’m self-employed right now and I don’t know how to continue with my SSS (Social Security System) contributions. I also have an active loan and I’d like to check how much I owe them. I remember that I have an online account with SSS so I checked my inbox for my login details.
It’s been 90 days since I last logged in so I was prompted to change my password. After that, I was able to log in using my new password. I checked my SSS contributions and I’m happy to see that it’s updated:

I checked the Loans tab but didn’t see the exact amount and monthly deduction from my payroll there. And sorry to say this, the system is not that user-friendly. Main menus are okay, but I never thought that those little triangles are drop-down menus until my mouse pointer accidentally hovered over them.
On a positive note, the appointment system is impressive in a sense that you’ll get prioritized when you visit the desired branch over walk-in members. I’m referring to the concept itself and not the service because I haven’t tried setting an appointment yet. By using the appointment system, you’ll also be able to select specific service and provide more information about your concern. I just hope that SSS Office are providing quality service because I’ve heard some nasty things about them.
No matter how crappy some offices are, it’s still good to be an SSS member because it entitles you with different claims such as maternity claim, retirement claim, sickness claim and social security disability claim.
