How Much Is My SSS Maternity Benefit?

By KD

The amount of your SSS maternity benefit depends on your 6 highest monthly contributions within the 12-month period immediately before your Semester of Contingency.

Question:

I am giving birth in March 2013. Here are my posted contributions. Would you please compute my SSS maternity benefit. Thanks.

2012:
Feb   - 468
Mar  - 1092
Apr  - 1196
May - 1040
June - 520
July  - 260

Answer: 

You're giving birth in March 2013, so your Semester of Contingency is Oct 2012 to March 2013, and the 12-month period that SSS will consider for computation is Oct 2011 to Sep 2012. These are the 12 months immediately before your Semester of Contingency.
Have you paid at least 3 monthly contributions within the 12 months mentioned? Yes, you have paid 3 at least contributions. That means you are eligible for the SSS maternity benefit.

How much is your maternity benefit? Within those 12 months, SSS will look for your 6 highest monthly contributions, so it can find your 6 highest monthly salary credits. You only have 6 contributions, so SSS will just choose those contributions so it can get your 6 SSS monthly salary credits:

Feb  - 468    -  salary credit is 4500
Mar  - 1092 -  salary credit is 10500
Apr  - 1196  -  salary credit is 11500
May - 1040  -  salary credit is 10000
June - 520    -  salary credit is 5000
July  - 260    -  salary credit is 2500

If for example you have 7 to 12 monthly contributions within that 12-month period, SSS will find your 6 highest monthly salary credits. If you have only 3, or 4 o 5 contributions, SSS will just pick those 3, or 4, or 5 contributions to get your highest salary credits

In your case, you have exactly 6 contributions, so SSS will just choose those 6 as your highest.

Add the 6 highest monthly salary credits: 4500 + 10500 + 11500 + 10000 + 5000 + 2500 = 44000 pesos

Divide by 180 days. Why 180 days?  6 months x 30 days:  44000 / 180 = 244.44 pesos

Your average daily rate is 244.44 pesos.

If normal delivery, maternity leave is 60 days, so 244.44 x 60 = 14,666.67 pesos
Your maternity benefit is 14,666.67 pesos.

If Cesarean Section or CS, maternity leave is 78 days, so 244.44 x 78 =  19,066.32
Your maternity benefit is 19,066.32 pesos.

If you're employed, your benefit will be advanced to you in cash, check or payroll account deposit by your employer, either in full, or in partial amounts before and after your delivery.
If you're voluntary, OFW or self-employed, your benefit check will be delivered to you in the form of a check via a registered mail, delivered by your postman to the address you wrote in your maternity claim.

Warning:  Please check my computation; there might be an error. What's important is I have shown how the SSS maternity benefit is computed based on the rules released by the SSS on its website.

How much is the lowest maternity benefit amount?
2,000 pesos for normal delivery
2,600 pesos for CS

How much is the highest maternity benefit amount? 
The maximum monthly contribution increased to 16,000 pesos in January 2014: 
32,000 pesos for normal delivery
41,600 pesos for CS

  1. Angel Juyad: How much is my maternity benefit? Delivered Dec 18, 2013. School gave me 16,000 when I took my leave.
    Salary list:
    2011 - 2012 - 8000
    2012 - 2013 - 9000
    2013 - 2014- 9500

    Hi Angel, what are your 6 highest salary credits within July 2012 to June 2013? If the 6 highest are six 8000s, then 16000 is the correct amount.
    If for example, 3 are 8000s and 3 are 9000s, then it should be
    3 x 8000 = 24k
    3 x 9000 = 27k
    24k + 27k = 51k
    51k / 180 days = 283.33
    283.33 x 60 (normal delivery) = 17k pesos (benefit)

    Hi beberlyn, sorry but you should have paid at least 3 contributions within July 2013 to June 2014. You can no longer pay for these months. Ask others too, to be sure. SSS maternity eligibility

  6. China Henan Sep 1 2014: Hi Kaydee, the maternity benefit is from SSS, right? Since I'm on leave, does that mean I get my regular salary from my company, in addition to my SSS benefit?

    Hi China, your maternity leave will be paid by SSS -- that's your maternity benefit. Only a few companies have their own separate maternity benefit program, so I assume you won't get your regular salary from your company. You can ask your HR or fellow employees if your company has a separate maternity benefit program.

    Good day Miss Kaydee...I'll give birth this january 2015. I paid my SSS cotributions in 2010 but I stopped, and just got started again, making my payment last month. Am I qualified for maternity benefits? Thanks and God Bless. :)

    Hi susan, pay for July to Sep 2014 to qualify. Did you pay for August only last month? If yes, then pay for July and Sep. You can still pay for July if you pay quarterly. After these payments are posted, file your MAT1.

    ReplyDelete
  11. Hi carla, since your resignation and delivery dates are within 6 months of each other, you need to submit certificate of separation with separation date, cert of non-advancement of maternity benefit and L501.
    About your benefit amount, you can get the maximum, which is 32k, if you have paid also 1760 for March and April (not posted, call your former employer and ask). If March and April were not paid, your benefit will be 31,300 (normal delivery)
    File your MAT1 asap, if not yet filed.

    hello miss kaydee...thank you very much for your reply. my follow up question: from 2010, it was only last month (AUG) that i pais my SSS. was not able to pay for July. your advice is for me to pay for July and Sep. Do you think they will accept my July payment so I can avail of my maternity benefit? thank you and God bless :)

    Hi susan, if you pay for July only, they won't accept it, you should pay for July Aug and Sep, so it becomes a quarterly payment, and you would still be within the deadline. The problem is you've already paid for August. How much did you pay for August? the total for August should not be more than 1760. Pay at SSS so they can help you.

    Hi! May I ask if I can avail of MAT. I resigned march 2013, and my expected due is March 2015. I've inquired already but things are not yet clear. What they advised was I need to pay Jul aug and sept for 1650 pesos each month then oct to dec 1650 pesos each month. Those are big amounts so I need to be sure I can claim my maternity benefit. Before the end of sept, I should be able to pay, right? Please compute also my benefit if I pay 1650 from jul to dec. thanks a lot!

    Hi Joeris, yes, pay July to Sep asap so you can avail. If these are paid and posted, your maternity benefit will be 15k. File your MAT1 asap.
    If 1650 is more than 2 levels than your monthly contribution in 2013, declare your income in the RS5 form and keep this form for future reference. SSS Payment deadlines

    Good day. May I ask if I can avail of my maternity benefits...I'm OFW and expected to give birth on Jan. 5, 2015 here in saudi arabia. I'm an active member of sss and a regular payor of contributions. But my mother forgot to pay for december 2013 and july 2014.if this is the case, can i still avail of the maternity benefits and would you please compute so I can have an idea. My monthly contribution is 1560 pesos. thanks

    Hi Janah, yes, you can avail. File your MAT1 online and print the acknowledgment page. Were you still paying 1560 since Jan 2014? The monthly contributions have increased. The maximum since Jan 2014 is 1,760. If you were still paying 1,560, ask your mother to pay your underpayments. Fill up "Underpayments" in the RS5 form. Your underpayment is 200 pesos x 5 = 1,000 (if Jan to June). Write applicable months. Then check later online if your contributions have been correctly posted.
    If your maximum contributions are posted (meaning 6 maximum contributions within Jan to Sep 2014), then your maternity benefit will be 32k.

  20. Hi reynalyn, you file MAT1 BEFORE giving birth. You file MAT2 AFTER giving birth. Now, it takes 1 month or more before you get your check.

  22. Hello po ulet and thank you for your reply. I checked with my mom, from jan 2014 till present, 1650 pesos po ang hinulog ng mother ko.so kung 1760 napo ang dapat na contribution, it means need ko i-settle ang underpayment with an amount of 110 pesos for each month starting jan. 2014.tama po ba ang computation ko.again salamt po ulet.

  23. Joeris:
    Why only 15k? July to Sep not included in the 6-month computation? Even if I did not have 2 years of contributions while employed, can I avail of maternity benefit, as long as I pay July to Sep? Thanks

    Hi Joeris, it's only 15k because your payment for Oct to Dec will not be included in the computation. Your semester of contingency, Oct 2014 to Mar 2015, is excluded in the computation.
    Yes, you can avail even if you paid less than 2 years of contributions when you were employed.

    ReplyDelete
  24. Hi Janah, yes, you're right, your underpayment since Jan is 110 per month. I checked again the RS5 form, and found that there's no Underpayment portion there, unlike in the salary loan payment form, so remind your mom to inform the SSS cashier that it's for underpayments.

    ReplyDelete
  27. Hi Aisha, your 6 highest contributions are four 1560s and two 1760s.
    So your 6 highest salary credits are four 15k and two 16k.

    4 x 15k = 60k
    2 x 16k = 32k
    60k + 32k = 92k
    92k / 180 days = 511.11 pesos per day

    Your benefit is 511.11 x 60 days if normal delivery = 30,666.60 pesos

    Your benefit is 511.11 x 78 days if CS = 39,866.58 pesos

    Hello, my expected date of delivery will be May 2015. But my last sss contribution when i was employed was dec 2011. After i found out i was pregnant I paid as voluntary because I'm presently without work. I paid from july 2014-dec 2014 contribution of 550. Can i also avail maternity benefit and how much? Thank you so much for your help

    Hi shai , yes, you're eligible. File your MAT1 if more than 60-days pregnant already, with ultrasound report. The salary credit for 550 is 5,000 pesos, so your maternity benefit will be 10,000 pesos (normal delivery).

    Hi ayeenshane, is 36k your total salary credits for the 6 applicable months? Or did you contribute 660 for the 6 months to be considered by SSS? If yes, then your benefit is 12,000 pesos (for normal delivery).

    Hi abby, yes, you can claim your maternity benefit as Separated employee. Resign in good terms with your company so that it will be easy for you to request a Certificate of Separation with date of separation, Cert of non-advancement of maternity benefit and L501 form. Submit these when you file your MAT2 documents.

  42. Hi Aisha Rica, the gap between your date of separation and date of delivery is more than 6 months so you don't need to file separation documents. But there are SSS officers who require these even if the gap is more than 6 months, and I don't know why. Just pray that your documents will be evaluated by people who know the rules.
    About your benefit amount: Your 6 highest premiums within Jul 2013 to June 2014 are four 1560 and two 1760. Your 6 highest salary credits are four 15k and 2 16k. Add these 6 salary credits = 92k
    92k / 180 days = 511.11
    511.11 x 60 days (normal delivery) = 30,667
    Your maternity benefit = 30,667 pesos

  43. Hi Jessa Grace, your semester of contingency is July to Dec 2014. Your 6 highest salary credits within July 2014 to June 2014 are six 12000.
    12000 x 6 = 72,000
    72,000 / 180 days = 400
    400 x 60 days (normal delivery) = 24,000
    Your maternity benefit = 24,000 pesos

    good day, I'm ofw. I started contributing to sss in january 2013. My contribution is 1560 every month, but I was single that time; now I'm married but I haven't updated my status. I'm giving birth this march 2015. my last payment was june 2014. I'm paying the highest contribution. Will be paying for another 6 months this november. how can I claim my maternity benefits? thank you and more power!

    Hi vee, file your MAT1, either online or at an SSS branch. File before giving birth. Register at sss.gov.ph so you can file your MAT1 online.
    You can update your civil status at the Philippine consulate's SSS desk in the country where you are. Ask around if there's an SSS desk there. Or you can comment again here, writing where you are, and I will check if there's an SSS desk there. You will present your marriage cert (orig and xerox) and your IDs and you will fill up the Member Data Change form.

    Hi can I avail of maternity benefit? Then how much? I filed my mat1 last june 9 2014. Expected delivery is last week of n0v 1st wk of dec 2014. Separated from my company last feb 2014. Member since 2006. Last posted contribution is feb 2014. Eligible? Thanks

    Hi Lorie, yes, you can avail. How much? It depends on your 6 highest salary credits within July 2013 to June 2014. Add your 6 highest salary credits. Divide by 180. Multiply by 60, for normal delivery. See examples in my previous answers to comments.

    ReplyDelete
  47. Hi Joane, yes, you're eligible. Were your contributions within July 2013 to June 2014 SSS always 1248? (400 from you plus your employer's 848)
    If yes, your maternity benefit is 24k, for normal delivery.

  48. Hi. My last sss contribution was August 2013. I am 1month pregnant now and will be due on July18,2015. Will i still be eligible for maternity benefit if i start to pay my contribution this Nov2014?

    Hi I gave birth in 2013 and got my maternity benefit. Now I'm pregnant. Expected date is April 13, 2015. Thanks. My contributions:

    2014
    April- 1150
    May - 1150
    June- 1150
    July- 1150
    August - 1150
    September -1150

    Hi Leslieann, do you mean 1155 for each month? The salary credit for 1155 is 10,500, so your benefit will be 21k pesos, if normal delivery.

    Hello, Can you confirm how much I will get if I have contributed for 5yrs but stopped since June 2012. Contributed again this 2014:
    April-June 2014 for 1650/mo
    Jul - Sep 2014 for 1650/mo
    BUT Skipped payment for Oct- Nov. I wasnt able to pay those 2mos
    December, I can either pay or not be able to pay, it depends if I still qualify for the maternity benefit even is i failed OCTOBER-NOVEMBER. Im due in January 1. How much will I get? If I pay december or not pay december.Thank you..

    Hi Chrissa, you qualify for maternity benefit even if you don't pay Oct to Dec 2014. Your benefit will be 30k pesos, if normal delivery.

    ReplyDelete
  51. Hi Hued, yes. You can still pay for Oct as long as you pay the whole quarter of Oct to Dec 2014 and then later on pay Jan to March 2015.
    You'll have higher benefit if you pay for October too.

    Hi mary jane, your semester of delivery is Jan to June 2014, so SSS will look for 6 highest premiums within Jan to Dec 2013. You only have 3 contributions in 2013. So your total salary credits are:
    8000 +7500 + 8500 = 24000
    24000 / 180 days = 133.33
    133.33 x 60 days = 8000
    Your maternity benefit is 8000 pesos.

  55. Hi rhenzel, you're correct. If you gave birth in July 2014, SSS will look for 3 to 6 contributions within May 2013 to Apr 2014

    Hi, may I ask if I'll get 13k for my maternity benefit. due date is october 10. I gave birth sept.22 2014 by cs. monthly contribution is 550. In june 3 2014 I filed for my eldest. Will I receive the same amount?

    Hi Ervin, if you paid 3 520s within Apr 2013 to Dec 2013 and three 550s within Jan to Mar 2014, your maternity benefit is 10k pesos.

    ReplyDelete
  59. Hi Dahil-Sinabi-Mo, yes, you're eligible because you have 6 contributions within oct 2013 to Sep 2014.

    Ok, I thought it's still 13k like what I got for my eldest. cs again for my 2nd baby. 2012 when I started paying 520. now 2014, it's 550 continuous. In 2010 i paid for 7 months but I don't know how much my previous company remitted for me.

    REPLY:
    Hi Ervin, if you had CS, then your benefit is 13k pesos, the same amount as before (78 days x 166.67 = 13k pesos).

    Check from time to time if sss.gov.ph is already functioning, then register, so you can check your previous contributions. Prepare your latest SSS receipt; you need your transaction no.

  62. hello, i just need to clarify something. I am a separated employee starting this august 2014, I never paid after I resigned, until this month of December, its my due this December. I have questions, pls be kind to answer.

    1. Do I still need to pay from August to DEc 2014? ( I have paid more than 6months from Sep2013-August2014, or to the 12mos before my Semester of Contingency which is JULY-DECEMBER2014. ( correct me if im wrong)

    2. DO I need to change my status from Employed to Voluntary? Will that affect my maternity benefits or no?

    3. On the SSS form for reimbursement, or mat2, Do I still need to fill out the part for my employer if I am separated?

    Thank you.. I will wait for your response. I am really worried if those things that I have asked would affect my maternity benefits. Thanks

    I computed. If I pay oct-dec and jan-march, that will count only 5 mos as march-aug is the 6-month semester of contingency. Am i qualified?

    ANSWER: Hi jhen23, yes, you'll qualify if you pay asap this Dec for Oct to Dec, and then pay next quarter for Jan to Mar 2014. Your 6-month payment will be counted; your semester of contingency is Apr to Sep.

  71. Hi shania,
    1. You are correct. You don't need to pay. Your semester of contingency is correct. The prior 12-month period is July 2013 to June 2014
    2. You don't need to change. Check Separated in your MAT2 form. You need to submit Cert of separation, cert of non-advancement of maternity benefit and L501 form. This will explain your status shift from Employed to Separated.
    3. No. You're not currently Employed, or you're not employed when you deliver.

    If you have paid as Voluntary, and your status has changed to Voluntary, check Voluntary in your MAT2. But you still need to submit your separation papers, as the gap between your separation and delivery dates is less than 6 months. Check your online account.
    Ask others too.

  72. Happy New Year! I just want to ask kasi I have filed my MAT-2 last Nov 27 and when I checked just now nakalagay settled claim with cheque number na din. What does it mean? Ang problem pa, nagulat ako na 30k lang ang benefit ko kasi I was expecting 39k dahil CS ako. When I checked the details of my claim online nakalagay sa STATUS of DELIVERY: Normal. I submitted all the necessary requirements like operation record, discharge summary, birth cert and lahat yun naka indicate that I underwent a CS section. How come normal ang nakalagay dun? Is there a way I can still claim for full benefits? Sino kaya nagkamali dun? I have a feeling they did not check my docs na kaya ganun. Napaparanoid din ako na baka may nag claim na iba using my name.

  73. Hi Rona, you can wait for your check and voucher to be delivered to you through postal mail, and then check if your name and SSS no. are correct. If correct, xerox your voucher and check (for your copy) and then go to your SSS branch and ask. Ask if you can encash your 30k check and then request for recomputation so you can get your additional 9k.

  74. QUESTION from Sahra Mae Leoligao Jan 10 2015
    hi! our company is small so I'm also the one computing our pay. my due date will be this april 2. My 12 monthly contributions from Jan 2014 to Dec 2014 are all 935.
    Thanks. Hope you can help me. Im afraid the amount my employer gives me is not equal to the refund from sss. Sara
    ANSWER:
    Hi Sahra, sorry I shortened your list to save space.
    Your due date is April, so your semester of contingency is Jan to June 2015. SSS will look for your 6 highest contributions within the 12 months before your semester of contingency -- within Jan to Dec 2014.
    Salary credit for 935 is 8500
    8500 x 6 = 51k
    51k / 180 days = 283.33
    283.33 x 60 days (normal delivery) = 17k
    Your maternity benefit is 17k
    Your employer can advance you 17k.

  75. Sahra Mae Leoligao By the way, Sahra, what do you mean by "Im afraid na baka hindi mag coincide yong amount na ibibigay ko sa employer ko dun sa refund na ibibigay ng sss."

    ANSWER:
    Hi elia, did you mean you started paying oct 2013? If yes, your benefit is 3,000 pesos (based on 312 monthly contributions). You said you paid 330? There's no 330 in the 2013 table of contributions. There's 312. You can get your check within 3 weeks to 2 months.

    Answer:
    Hi Sucel, go to SSS today asap and try to pay for Oct to Dec 2014 so you can qualify. If the last digit of your SSS no. is 3 or higher, you can still pay. Your payment for Jan to Mar 2015 will not be counted because your semester of contingency is Jan to Jun 2015.

    ANSWER:
    Hi Ann, if your due is September, you can pay Jan to Mar so you can avail. Did you contribute as an employee before or as OFW? Do you have a Date of Coverage. If none, register first as self-employed before paying. Show proof of source of income. You can pay 1,760 if your monthly income is 15,750 or higher.

    Hi can i just ask? I worked last time for a year and then my employer contributed only for 3 mos. after that I got another work, now it's like oct-dec. were the only ones paid for and then my problem now is i might give birth 1st week feb 2015 or last week of jan. how is that? 6 mos but with gap, is that ok? actually I filed MAT1 last nov. do i have to pay until march so I can get what they say as 6 mos straight payment? pls answer thank you :)
    ANSWER:
    Hi Shirley, if your due is Jan or Feb 2015, your semester of contingency is Oct 2014 to Mar 2015. To qualify, you should have at least 3 contributions within Oct 2013 to Sep 2014. Whatever you pay this quarter will no longer be considered for your delivery this Jan or Feb.

  85. QUESTION from Ervin Reyzaner Bernal January 25, 2015
    Hi,its me again. somebody told me that voluntary members without a business can not get maternity benefits. That's what they told her when she went to an sss branch. I hope you can answer. Why are we paying as voluntary if we cannot get maternity benefits? Thank you again
    ANSWER:
    Were you employed previously? And did your employer remit your contributions to SSS? Do you have a Date of Coverage? If yes, then you're truly a Voluntary Member. And if you have at least 3 contributions within the 12-month period before your semester of contingency, then you are qualified, even if you don't have a business. When you file your maternity claim, you are not required to show proof that you have a business.
    Was your friend employed previously? Does she have a Date of Coverage? If not, she cannot start paying as Voluntary. If she paid without registering correctly, her payments will not be valid. She must first register as Self-Employed. To register as self-employed, she must show proof of source of income, like business permit, or sales commission, or barangay certification of source of income.

  91. QUESTION from Nagie Macaraeg Jan 29 2015
    Good day. I'll give birth MAY 2015, but I'm not married to the father of my child. although we live together. My child will use the surname of his father, which is legal now, right? Will it not be a problem for my mat claim? as my child and I will have different surnames? Thanks
    ANSWER:
    Hi Nagie, it should not be a problem, as your child'd birth certificate will show that your surname is your child's middle name, and the father's surname is your child's surname, and the certificate will also show that you're not married (Date of Marriage will be blank). SSS might ask you to include an Affidavit of Discrepancy in Surname, stating that you are not married to the father of your child. But I hope they no longer require it.

    hello. I gave birth last nov. 2, 2014. actually I've filed with sss already. I checked online and 37,226.66 pesos is the amount paid. I have not received the check. I came across this blog and I computed following your instructions. My result is 39K. How did they compute 37,226.66. My 12 month period is from jun2013-May2014, right? heres my contribution. hope you have time to compute. thanks. Jun2013-Nov2013, 1560 pesos. btw I had cs.thanks
    ANSWER:
    Hi Haruko, your sem of contingency is July to Dec 2014, so your 12-month period is July 2013 to June 2014. Your July to Nov 2013 salary credits will be considered. Salary credit for 1560 is 15k.
    5 months x 15k = 75,000
    75,000 / 180 days = 416.67
    416.67 x 78 days = 32,500
    So you see that my computation is lower.
    Maybe you paid Dec 2013? So you should get 39k.
    Do you have a delinquent salary loan balance?
    So they deducted 1,773.34 from 39k?

    ANSWER:
    Hi Rocell, SSS will look for your 6 highest contributions within April 2014 to March 2015. Add your 6 highest salary credits. Divide by 180. Multiply by 60 days if normal delivery. Multiply by 78 if CS.

  95. Hi Sahra Mae Leoligao, yes, you can claim your benefit. I hope you have already filed your MAT1. Your employer has submitted their exemption application, but it has not been processed by SSS. Maybe SSS has a backlog of SMB applications. Check from time to time.

  96. QUESTION from Lynxmeister Feb 17, 2015
    hi Ms.JK, can I claim my maternity benefits. my due date is september, just started paying this feb. for the months of jan-march Voluntary contributions. Then I plan to pay in march for the months of april-june. Am I Qualified for benefits? Thanks
    ANSWER:
    Hi Lynxmeister, you said you just started. Did you pay SSS before through your employer in the past? Because if not, you should first register as self-employed before paying. You're not allowed to start paying as Voluntary. You can qualify for half of your maternity benefit if you pay Jan to March, but you need to be sure that you started paying properly. One way to check is if you have a Date of Coverage. You can verify it at any SSS branch. How to register as self-employed member of SSS

    ReplyDelete
  97. Hi Lynxmeister, as I was browsing I saw your other question in which you mentioned you worked before. You've paid Jan to Mar so you will qualify. Have you filed your MAT1? But it's also good if you verify if you have Date of Coverage. Maternity Benefit Eligibility

  99. QUESTION from sab_albuen
    Good day! how much is my maternity benefit? I paid from jan.2014 to sept.2014 amt of 495php.and i give birth aug2014. I had previous work from march2012 to feb2013 . I submitted my mat2 last dec29,2014. How long will my claim be processed? Do I need to make follow up at sss personally? Thanks po.
    ANSWER:
    Hi sab_albuen, SSS will consider only your Jan to Mar 2014 contributions. The salary credit for 495 is 4,500 , so you will get 4,500 as maternity benefit. Your benefit would have been 9k if you had 6 contributions within Apr 2013 to Mar 2014. Wait for about a month or more. You can make follow-up if you haven't received your check after 2 or 3 months. You can also register at sss.gov.ph so you track your claim status.

  103. QUESTION from Mary Anne Chua Feb 23, 2015
    Hi! I'll give birth on Sept 2015. I have Contribution po from August 2014 up to Dec 2014.
    aug - 1760
    sept - 1760
    oct - 1760
    nov - 1760
    dec - 1760
    Is this the correct computation?
    16000*5=80,000/180=444.44*60=26666.66
    I don't have contributions for jan and feb 2015 as I was unemployed.
    If I pay 1760 for march 2015, will this be included in the computation for my maternity benefit? What I understand is my 12 month period is from april 2014-march 2015. my semester of contingency is from april 2015-sept 2015. is this right? Thanks
    ANSWER:
    Hi Mary Anne, your statements and computations are all correct. I'm glad. Yes, if you pay 1760 for March 2015, it will be included in the computation, so pay asap, and your benefit will be 32k.

  104. QUESTION from Renmer Mer February 28, 2015
    good afternoon mam/sir. Can I file a complaint against my company because in july 2009 I gave birth via cs. I got my maternity benefit, which was only 26000, for normal. I passed all the requirements. Our HR employee said I did not complete the requirements, so I got only what was for normal. Now that I registered online, I was surprised to see that what SSS gave me was 32,000. My employer owe me 6,000; what sss paid was for cs. Can I get the rest of what was due to me? what should I do? thank you.
    ANSWER:
    Hi Renmer, yes, you can ask your HR or accounting department politely but firmly to correct their mistake and give you their balance of 6,000 asap. Xerox your payslip in which the 26k appears, and the payslips sandwiching this payslip (to prove that you got only 26k). Print also the SSS page showing that SSS paid you 32k in 2009. Attach these to a letter of request asking your company to give your 6,000. Explain also what happened, similar to what you wrote me here. Xerox these and have them sign it to prove that they have received your request letter and docs.
    I advise that you make it appear that it was a mistake so as not to antagonize your company because you're still working there (it might have been done by an employee without knowledge by your employer; maybe an employee benefited). Pray and take care

  113. Hi Empress, you can no longer pay for June to Dec 2014. You can pay asap this month for Jan to March 2015.
    If you deliver in Oct or Nov, you can pay every month from Apr to June, as these months will be counted. If you deliver in Sep, SSS will look for at least 3 contributions within Apr 2014 to Mar 2015.

  114. Hi Aissa Quimbao, yes, pay asap this month for Jan to March to increase your benefit. SSS will look for 6 highest contributions within Apr 2014 to Mar 2015. Pay as Voluntary.
    How much is your benefit? If you pay 1760 each month from Jan to Mar, then SSS will add five 16k (for 1760) and 5k (for 550).
    16k x 5 plus 5k = 85k
    85k / 180 = 472.22
    472.22 x 60 (normal delivery) = 28,333 pesos (your benefit)

    April 2014-march2015 pala. If that's the case until when can i pay jan-march2015? Will i pay as voluntary? Then file ko yung mat1 ko 1st week of april. Kasi i got hired and will start 25th of march. Pwd pa bang mgfile nun? Kasi mas madali kung sila magfafile kesa ako. Thank you po

  122. Im 8 mos pregnant. Already claimed 9 days for threathened abortion on my 3rd month. Then was advised for another bed rest from my 6 month until now (8 months). SSS already approved a total of 73 days on my Sickness Benefits. Since my due date will be this end of September. I can only file for 47 days Maternity Benefit for normal delivery. Is it true that SSS covers a total of 120 days for both Sickness & Maternity Benefits combined and not 120 for Sickness and another 60 or 78 days for Normal or CS delivery.

    ReplyDelete
  123. About sickness and maternity benefits September 5, 2015
    What I know is that the maximum no. of days for sickness benefit is 120 days per calendar year, and the maximum no. of days for maternity benefit is 60 days (for normal) and 78 days (for CS), and they are basically separate benefits. The exact dates claimed for maternity benefit cannot be claimed for sickness benefit, meaning there's no double benefit for the same condition on the same dates.
    I've read somewhere, from someone based on her experience, that if the sickness benefit was availed of in the 37th week of pregnancy and onwards, it's already counted as part of the maternity benefit (check if that's the reason you can enjoy only up to 47 days of maternity benefit.)

    Hello po I am ofw po. I haven't paid sss since 2001. Now I'm pregnant and due on Feb 10, 2016. Can I make retroactive payments so I can claim my maternity benefit? thank you po.
    ANSWER:
    Yes, because you are OFW, and because you have not yet given birth. For OFWs, your payments for previous quarters are not late payments because OFWs were given flexible payment deadlines. But if you pay here in the Philippines, you must show a proof you're OFW. If you're currently abroad, you can pay through accredited SSS payment centers there. Keep proofs you're OFW during these months.
    Pay for at least 6 months from Jan 2015 to Sep 2015.

    1. About paying contributions to avail of maternity benefit:
      Yes, what the SSS personnel told you is true. Your semester of delivery is Jan to June 2016, and SSS will look for at least 3 contributions within 12 months before the said semester. Pay asap Oct to Dec 2015.
      If you pay 5280, your benefit will be 16,000 pesos.
      Computation:
      16,000 x 3 = 48,000
      48,000 / 180 days = 266.67 pesos
      266.67 x 60 days (normal delivery) = 16,000 pesos

  131. About SSS maternity benefit amount:
    Hi Jubby, there's no 1,250 in the SSS contribution chart. There's 1265, and the corresponding salary credit is 11,500.
    11,500 x 5 = 57.500
    57,500 / 180 days = 319.44
    319.44 x 60 days = 19,166.67
    Your benefit, if normal delivery, is 19,166.67 pesos

    Hi, can I still avail of the benefit if i delivered 2 years ago? I got pregnant nov. 2012; I resigned dec. 2012. I gave birth aug. 2013.
    ANSWER:
    Filing is allowed within 10 years. Did you pay at least 3 contributions within Apr 2012 to Mar 2013? If yes, you can try filing. Submission of MAT1 before delivery is a requirement, but there are times SSS considers certain cases. Attach a letter to your filled-up MAT1 explaining why you were not able to file your MAT1 before delivery.
