  2. Hi! I was separated from my company July1 of last year and have already filed mat1 before my cs delivery. Ngaun magpapasa kmi ng mat2 and nakailang balik na kmi to ask the requirements para sa reimbursement but never told na kailangan pa nmin magpasa ng l501. Will my cert of clearance or coe can be considered as cert of separation? Do i really need to pass the l501? I read from the comments above na l501 is only required pag less than 6mos ang date ng separation from prev comp. Please reply. Thanks!

  3. QUESTION from MaRiShKA Villa Mar 1 2015
    Hello. My previous employer did not remit to SSS my contributions. I came to know just recently when I was filing my maternity claim. I have filed a case with Dole and I'm sure the processing will take a long time. How much is the required amount that I should pay to avail of maternity benefit? I have worked for 4 years for my previous employer. Thanks
    ANSWER:
    Hi Marishka, it's so sad to come to know of your situation. I'm also sad to say that you cannot pay contributions for years that have already passed. There are SSS payment deadlines. To qualify, it's not about amounts paid. It's about having at least 3 posted contributions within the 12-month period prior to the semester you gave birth.
    Your previous employer is liable to remit your SSS contributions and pay the penalties and to pay your maternity benefit (if you were qualified for maternity benefit with contributions under this employer).

  4. QUESTION from Elaine Pastor Mar 8 2015
    Hi! I was separated from my company July 1 of last year and have already filed Mat1 before my cs delivery. Now we will file mat2 and have gone to SSS many times to ask the requirements for reimbursement but never told that we need to pass l501. Will my cert of clearance or coe can be considered as cert of separation? Do i really need to pass the l501? I read from the comments above that l501 is only required if date of separation from prev comp is less than 6 mos. Please reply. Thanks!
    ANSWER:
    Hi Elaine, you need to submit separation documents (cert of separation with date of separation, cert of non-advancement of maternity benefit and L501) if the gap between your date of separation and date of delivery is less than 6 months. If the gap is more than 6 months, pay 1 contribution as Voluntary so your member status will change to Voluntary. Make sure your member status has been changed to Voluntary before filing MAT2 as Voluntary.

  6. QUESTION from noemi estillana Feb 27 2015
    Hi po. my previous employer refused to give me the requirements I need to claim my maternity benefits. I gave birth jan. 11. I resigned july 2014. They said they won't give me the requirements because they didn't know I was pregnant when I left and I
    am no longer with them.
    ANSWER:
    Hi noemi, if the gap between your date of separation and date of delivery is more than 6 months, you can file MAT2 as Voluntary and not as Separated. Pay at least 1 monthly contribution to SSS as Voluntary so that your member status will change from Employed to Voluntary. Wait for your member status to change to Voluntary before filing MAT2.
    If the gap is less than 6 months, submit affidavits to replace separation certificates.
    Separation Affidavit
    Non-Advancement Affidavit

  8. QUESTION from Sally Clave March 8 2015
    hello po. I've passed my requirements march 04. I gave birth oct 27, 2014. HR told me they're not sure about the claim because I was late in submitting MAT2 documents. Is there a deadline for MAT2 submission?
    Before my cs delivery, I received almost half. I was told I'll get the other half after MAT2 submission. I was not informed if there's a limit time to pass the mat2 requirements. Then they told me they're not sure if I can get more benefits as I was late in passing the requirements. What I know is that 10 years is the limit for mat2. pls i need an answer. I'm worried.
    ANSWER:
    Hi Sally, you're right that you have 10 years to file your MAT2 claim. But of course it's always better to file within the first year, which you have. If you have submitted a complete set of documents, and there are no discrepancies in your documents, then your claim will be approved. Check your online SSS account from time to time.

  14. Hi Anne, yes, you're qualified for maternity benefit (not loan). It seems that the gap between your date of separation and date of delivery will be less than 6 months, so you will be required to submit separation papers. But if more than 6 months, pay at least 1 contribution so your member status will be changed to Voluntary, so you can file your MAT2 documents as Voluntary.

  18. Hi good evening. My status is currently married, but annulment is in process since I am separated from my husband for 13yrs. As per my Atty. we're almost done on the papers hopefully we will get the court order this year. When I filed my MAT 1 with my current employer I used my husband's last name. As per my Atty and OB I can use in the birth certificate of the child as single so the father of my baby which is my current partner can have his last name for the baby since he is very much willing as well. I will be giving birth by September this year. My question is will there be any problem when claiming my benefits or filing the MAT2 when in my baby birth cert I will have my maiden name or single status last name? Need your inputs please. Thank you so much

  24. Question from Jho Domagtoy Jun 10, 2015
    I asked my previous employer for a l501 and they told me they're not issuing L501. Is my Certificate of employment enough - there's info there that I'm already separated from them.
    ANSWER:
    Hi Jho, many SSS officers require that the title of the document is Certificate of Separation, and not Cert of Employment. They also require Cert of Non-Advancement of Maternity Benefit. These 2 papers are required if the gap between your separation date and delivery date is less than 6 months. Try pointing out to the officer the info about your separation in your document. File at the SSS branch nearest your previous employer, so it will be more likely that your previous employer's L501 is with that branch.

    ANSWER:
    Hi Grace, yes, you can file in your province. If the gap between your date of separation and date of delivery is less than 6 months, you need to file your Cert of Separation and Cert of Non-Advancement of Maternity Benefit, issued by your previous employer.

  27. Hi, I gave birth po last November 26, 2013. I resigned from work due to high-risked pregnancy when I'm on my 3rd month. May 10, 2015 is the date of my separation from work. I wasn't able to file for Mat 1 because I got confused if I could avail for that claim since I am not working anymore. As per checking this website, I decided to claim for my maternity benefit. Am I still going to file for Mat 1 since it is a requirement for my claim? Mat 1 should be filed to SSS before giving birth, right? Please help me regarding this matter. Thank you.

    1. About delayed filing:
      Hi Bambina, yes, MAT1 filing before delivery is required, but you can try filing. Some who commented here said their claims were approved; some were not. Yes, include MAT1. Fill up MAT1 form and attach your letter explaining why you were not able to file your MAT1 before delivery.
      To be sure you're eligible: check if you have at least 3 posted contributions within July 2012 to June 2013

  28. Hi po. I'm Kath. Ask ko lang po kung panu po yung last employer ko e ayaw ako bigyan ng certificate of separation as well as their copy of L-501 and non cash advancement of maternity leave kasi end of contract na po ako sa kanila nung nanganak ako. Ang reason out kasi nila sakin kaya ayaw nila ko bigyan is that hindi daw ako nag-turn over for 30 days. Pwede po ba nilang ihold yun? May mga sanctions po ba ko na pwede ikaso sa kanila? Thanks po.

  29. About certificates from former employer, Kitkat Visbal 11/5/15:
    Hi po. I'm Kath. My last employer refused to give me certificate of separation as well as their copy of L-501 and non cash advancement of maternity leave. I was on end of contract when I gave birth. Their reason is that according to them I did not turn over for 30 days. Can they refuse to give certs? Are there sanctions I can use to sue them? Thanks po.
    ANSWER:
    If your former employer refuses, ask them if they prefer that you file a complaint with the SSS. You can file a complaint at SSS Diliman. Bring your letter of complaint, xerox copies of payslips showing SSS contributions, other proof of employment and your baby's birth certificate.
    Is the gap between your separation date and delivery date more than 6 months? If yes, pay one Voluntary contribution, check if your status has changed to Voluntary, then file your claim as Voluntary.

  32. irene consing, about payment of contributions and maternity benefit11/16/15
    hi Can I file po for maternity loan? It's been 9 months I haven't paid my contributions because I resigned from my company. I had a loan before I resigned. I plan to pay as voluntary the months that I missed paying. Do I need to get a certificate of separation even if I have resigned a long time ago. please reply po thanks.
    ANSWER:
    Hi Irene , it's maternity benefit, not loan. Comment again and write your date of resignation, date of delivery and the dates (months and year) of your last 12 monthly SSS contributions, so I can answer. If the gap between your date of resignation and date of delivery is more than 6 months, you don't need separation papers. Pay as voluntary so your status will change to voluntary, and so you can file as vonluntary.

  34. Hi Mam, I'm Darlyn Vegino po, mam ask ko lang po...

    I got pregnant po before I have ended my contract with my previous company, that was my first job and it only lasted for only 5 months, to be exact I have separated with them last November 30, 2011. I gave birth on July 16,2012 and I haven't been able to pay my SSS contribution since I got a job after almost a year and a half. My question po is, I am presently employed as a regular employee for a private company and I still want to pass my MAT2 for the reason that I gave birth through Cesarean Section and I still want to claim my Maternity Benefits at SSS. Will I be able to claim any benefits? If yes, may I know what am i going to do to be able to claim my maternity benefit. Your reply will be a big help to me. Thanks in advance.

    1. Hi Darlyn, I also replied to your question you posted in another article.
      Yes, you can file your MAT2 claim as voluntary or unemployed, as you were unemployed when you had your CS. Were you able to file your MAT1 before your CS? If not, fill up MAT1, then include a letter explaining why you were not able to file your MAT1 before you had CS. Actually, SSS says that if you gave birth in a hospital, notification is not needed. Obviously, you gave birth in a hospital.
      In the new MAT1 and MAT2 forms, there's no more field for member status, so this is no longer a problem. Tell the SSS officer you were unemployed when you gave birth in 2012, although at present, you're employed in another company.
      SSS might ask you to submit a certificate of separation with date of separation from your previous employer or an Affidavit of Undertaking, or they might not.

    3. Hi Rose, you can try. It depends on the SSS officer evaluating your documents. It might be better to file at the branch where your former company is filing their submissions, as that branch has a copy of your former company's L501.

    1. Hi diana mae, are you sure they filed it? Then they should have given it back to you. Since your former company did not give you back your MAT1, fill up another MAT1 form. Part II will not be filled up as you no longer have an employer. You're Separated. Then go to SSS with your ID and your ultrasound report or pregnancy certification and file your MAT1. The SSS officer will stamp it, sign it and date it and give it back to you. Keep this MAT1. You will submit this later on after you give birth, together with MAT2, birth certificate, etc.

What will happen sa MAT1 na nafile ko sa previous employer ko? Kelangan ko po ba pununta ng sss para magpasa ng mga documents?

    1. Hi MCR: no problem sa married surname mo kasi yang married surname mo naman dapat ang surname mo kahit widow ka na. Mag-change lang ang surname mo kapag you will marry again.
      I think yes, you can use the online MAT1 filing ng employer mo kapag mapa-print mo the acknowledgment page. Pero to be sure kasi Separated ka na, mag-file ka na lang ng notification as Separated sa SSS branch. Puede ka naman sana sa online din pero Employed pa kasi ang status mo, so hindi ka pa maka-online file as Separated.
      The gap between your delivery date and your resignation date is less than 6 months, so ask for a cert of separation and non-advancement of maternity benefit plus L501 form from your former employer.

    2. Hi MCR: Additional info: Sabi sa Civil Code Article 373, a widow may use the deceased husband’s surname as though he were still living.

  52. Hi good day! My concern is about the reimbursement process because I have my MAT 1 form stamped by SSS and i was told that i can reimburse it directly to them but I wasn't able to ask the requirements i need to bring and how long will it takes for me to claim the benefit. I was separated by my employer only this friday, july 29 because I am only a trainee and my OB advised me to rest for a couple of days. Hope you can help me because I'm worried that I will be getting it after i give birth which would be difficult because we need to secure the money before the delivery date. Thank you so much in advance.
