How to Update Your SSS Beneficiaries

By KD

Question from our Comment Section:

How can we change our SSS beneficiaries?. My husband went to SSS to ask about beneficiaries and to apply for his SSS ID, but the SSS officer ignored him. Can we change beneficiaries online?Are there requirements?

Answer:

You cannot yet change the names of your beneficiaries or update your list of beneficiaries online.

If you want to register your wife or husband as your beneficiary, go to the SSS branch nearest your workplace or your home. Bring your marriage certificate (original and xerox copy) and your SSS ID or any valid ID.

Ask for E4 form -- Member's Data Amendment Form -- from the frontdesk clerk or from the guard.

Fill up the form, and then go to the Member Assistance Center.
Ask for a Number from the guard, if people are holding number cards.

If you want to register your children as your beneficiaries, bring their birth certificates (original and xerox copies).

About SSS ID:

Have you paid at least one SSS contribution? Was this payment already posted?  Do you have a Date of Coverage?
If yes, you can apply for your ID at any branch that has an SSS ID photo capturing machine. Bring your valid IDs.
Here's a list of branches with SSS ID picture capturing machines.

Fill up this form -- E-6 Application for Social Security Card. Submit it at the SSS ID capturing counter, and wait for your turn or instructions.

  1. Hi,

    Please help naman po.. i have pending death claims sa sss for my father. Nag iisang anak lang po ako. Namatay na din mama ko. Tapos ang problem ko ngayon ay di ako makapagprovide ng death certificate ng parents ng papa ko dahil i have no infos regarding their deaths. Pati mga kakilala konh kapatid ng tatay ko ay wala din maibigay na infos sakin basta alam nila patay na parents nila. Nagkawatak watak na kasi silang pamilya simula nung namatay tatay nila bata palang daw sila. Please help me kung anong alternative ways to prove that my grandparents were already dead. Ayun nalang po kasi ang needed documents para malump sum ko yung contribution ng namatay kong ama. Sss staff told me also na im not the primary benificiary kasi di na ako minor. Legal heir nalang daw ako. So ang primary na ay yung parents ng papa ko thats why they are requesting death certificate ng parents ni papa. Hope to hear from you soon. Thank you so much!

    1. Yes, you can write your father and mother as your beneficiaries if you are single. If later on you get married and have children, you can change using the E4 form.

    1. Hi Wella, go to SSS with your ID. Fill up Member Data Change Request. If you'll add your spouse, bring marriage cert. If you'll add your child, bring birth cert.

  10. Maaari po bang gawin beneficiary ang anak ko ng Tito nya na siyang nagalaga at sumuporta sa kanya Simula pa LNG nung pinanganak siya kasi nagkahiwalay na po kami ng papa ng anak ko. Bale inampon po siya ng walang kasulatan.16 years old na po ang anak ko at sa Tito nya na po siya lumaki. Wala pong ibang beneficiary ang Tito nya kasi binata pa po siya at patay na po ang kanyang mga magulang.maraming salamat po kung matugunan nyo ang aking katanungan.

    1. due in March: Sorry no, you should have paid at least 3 contributions within Oct 2015 to Sep 2016. Ask others too.
      There is a rule called semester of contingency.
      What is semester of contingency?

    1. Hi Ms. J: If you're giving birth in March, sorry you won't qualify if you have not paid at least 3 contributions within Oct 2015 to Sep 2016. But if you deliver in April, you will qualify for the benefit.
