Posting of SSS Contributions -- Request for Correction


SSS Member:

Please help me write a Letter to SSS requesting SSS to post my monthly SSS contributions to my SSS Number. I found out recently, after about four years, that there is no record of my monthly SSS contributions.  I investigated, and I discovered that my cousin, whom I asked to make the payments for those years, wrote her own SSS number. She wrote my name and my address, but she failed to write the correct SSS number.


This is a sample letter I created. I hope I did not miss anything. You can modify it, or add to it.

Your cousin should also write a similar letter, describing her error, and requesting SSS to post all the payments to your number. This is very important, specially if the SSS contributions were posted in her SSS records, despite her SSS number not maching the name and address. SSS might even require her to submit an Affidavit describing her error and her request to correct the error.

Here is a sample Letter of Request for Correction:

Date of Letter

Self-Employed and Voluntary Members Department

Dear SSS Officers,

This is about the posting of my monthly SSS contributions to my correct SSS number.

My Name:  _____
My SSS No.:    _____
My Date of Birth: ______
My Current home address:  ________________

May I request your good office to please post the ____ monthly SSS contributions I paid from _____, 2009 to _____, 2013 to SSS No. _____________________.  These contributions were incorrectly credited to SSS no. ____________________.

This error happened because my cousin ____________________ who paid all the ____ contributions in my behalf while I was abroad (write valid reason) inadvertently wrote on the RS5 forms her own SSS number: _________________, instead of writing my correct SSS number, which is ________________.

Please post the following monthly SSS contributions to my SSS No. ____________________.

Applicable Month   RS5 O.R. No.      Date Paid      Amount Paid

April 2010            T#9118Z10H        05/08/10       0,000.00
May   2010          SBR#988428        06/07/10          000.00
June  2010           OTC#007897        07/07/10       0,000.00

Attached are copies of RS-5 forms for payment above.
Thank you very much for your consideration.

Respectfully yours,

SSS Member (signature above name)

Additional Notes:

Xerox all the RS-5 receipts for submission to SSS. If possible, go to SSS together with your cousin, so the SSS officers can immediately ask whatever question they need to ask.  Bring your SSS IDs or valid photo IDs.

Make 2 copies of your letter of request, so you can have one copy Received and Stamped by SSS.

About the missing RS-4 forms for the year 2009, your cousin should list these payments in her own letter, including the Applicable Months, and Amounts Paid.  She can check her online SSS account, if these were posted in her SSS account. If these were not posted, ask the SSS officer what you can do to have these contributions with missing RS-5 forms posted to your account.

We hope you can share later on your experiences with SSS, so you can help others in the same situation.

When Are SSS Contributions and Loan Payments Posted on SSS Members' Records?


  1. Hi good evening... Ask lng po ako, ano po ba dapat gawin pag laging pinapaasa ako ng past employer ko na ibigay ung L501? Pabalik balik na kc ako eh, may certificate of employment ako, certificate of non-advancement... Wla akong certificate of separation pro naka state po sa COE ko na separated na po ako... Pwedi p bang wla nlng ung l501?? Thanks...

    1. Hi Glendel: Yes, puedeng wala. Mag-submit ka doon sa SSS branch kung saan nagre-remit yong former company mo, kasi meron nang L501 doon yong company. Merong at least 2 members na nagkuwento dito na ganon ang ginawa nila, at natanggap naman yong claim nila.

    2. Okey thank u po ..god bless!

  2. Ano po b ung L501?ska ung certificate of separation need p b tlga? Ung company q kc nde ngbbgay. Pero meron n qng certificate of non cash advance. Wla dn aqng certificate of employee pero voluntary nq s sss after q dun eh.

    1. Hi jenny: Sorry I missed your question. Required ang mga certificates na yan kapag ang time gap between your date of resignation or separation and date of child delivery ay less than 6 months. Idagdag mo na lang ito sa cert of non-advancement of benefit mo: Affidavit of Undertaking

  3. Hello. Tanong q lng affected b ung mgiging benefits kng employed ka or nde?

  4. Hi Goodnoon..Please help me..what should i do po?..kasi po mali yung amount na nabayad nang company namin sa recent month...kulang po ng EC contribution...iba kasi ng.compute...and now hindi ko mkapost online and even makagawa ng R3 para submit ko sa SSS...

    1. Hi Eva: Do you mean yong kulang na payment ay for last October? Tingnan mo yong R3 form, sa PAYMENT DETAILS. Sana kung puedeng sulatan ng 2 sets of TR/SBR no., Date Paid and Amount Paid yong "3rd" (October), then i-total mo lang yong kulang at magbayad then you have 2 payment receipts.
      Pero mukhang hindi puedeng sulatan ng 2 sets of payment receipt data, so ang suggestion ko, file 2 sets of R3 forms (yong isa yong October ay kulang ng EC; the 2nd one ay for adjustment -- yong sa data field na "ADJUSTMENT TYPE" at "Addition to Previously Submitted R-3" sa R3 form -- at sulatan mo na yong sa "3rd" (October) ng payment receipt details (yong total of ECs unpaid na binayaran nio).
      Sorry I'm not from SSS; ask others too, kung ano ang mas okay na remedy. Mas maganda kung punta ka na lang sa SSS at tanungin mo kung puedeng 2 payment receipt details yong sa isang month sa R3 form.

  5. Hi hopefully someone can answer may question regarding SSS Posting..

    - Just want to ask lang sana what if nagbabayad kami for our employees but the problem is hindi siya nagreflect sa system ng SSS because hindi pa siya napopost, but yung file with receipt nung binayaran naming SSS contribution is nawawala without posting it yet. May possibility po kaya na malaman namin kung hanggan kelan yung last payment na nagawa namin and ano po yung puwedeng gawin kasi hindi na mahanap yung receipt thanks.

  6. Gud am ask ko lng po...dati po ako employed 4yrs nkapagcontribute...ngayon po ngvoluntary ako 330 jan feb march gusto ko po iupgrade to 550 ung aril may june contribution ko..pede po ba yun...paki sagot naman po..thanks po May

  7. sir,pano ba gumawa ng letter yung sa R-5 covered yunng ilang mos.pero yung na post nya is 1 month lang kung baga covered lang xa lahat sa 1 month.

  8. Good evening. Magtatanong lang po sana ako if qualified pa ako makakuha ng Mat2. Sa Manila po ako nagtrabaho. Nakakuha pa naman ako ng Mat1. Umuwi ako ng province para dito manganak kaso I have decided na di na bumalik para maka focus sa baby. I gave birth Dec 21, 2016. Pwede pa po ba ako mag claim ng Mat2 kahit di na akonconnected sa prevoous employer.ko? Thanks!

  9. Hi po ask lang gaano po katagal magpost yung sss ng payments ng employers?thanks

    1. Hi Madilin: Monthly nagbabayad ang mga employers sa SSS (in lump sum, name lang nila, wala pang names of employees), pero yong pag-submit nila ng collection list na kung saan andon ang mga names ng employees ay quarterly (after the quarter). Kaya usually, nade-delay ang pag-post ng contributions sa mga individual accounts sa SSS.

  10. pls help me po to write an explanation letter kasi po d ko nlagyan ng Sr yung pangalan ng tatay ko nung kinuha ako po yung death certificate nya.

  11. Good Day!
