Sample SSS Certificate of Separation from Employment

By KD
You can use this sample SSS Certificate of Separation from Employment as one of your documents to claim your SSS maternity benefit.

This certificate is required if you delivered your baby within 6 months of your date of separation from your employer.  Sometimes, SSS officers also require this certificate even if the gap between separation and child delivery is already more than 6 months but still less than one year.

Request your former employer to title your certificate as Certificate of Separation from Employment, because that is the certificate required by the SSS. A Certification of Employment (COE) is different, even if it contains almost the same information.

SSS did not issue a standard form for a Certificate of Separation from Employer or from Employment, but it specified that it must include the Date of Separation.

SAMPLE CERTIFICATE:
                     
                                          Company Name
                                          Company Address
            
                CERTIFICATE of SEPARATION from EMPLOYMENT

This is to certify that Susan Masipag who has been employed since April 4, 2008 by our company XYZ Co., with address at 123 Masaya St., Makati City, was separated from our employ on September 8, 2013.

 This certification is issued upon her request for the processing of her maternity benefit claim with the SSS.


                                                 
                                                                Name and Signature of 
                                                                Authorized Company
                                                                    Representative

                                                            Designation/Position of 
                                                           Authorized Representative

                                                                    Date Signed                                    


Reminder:

  Only one and the same person should sign these 3 documents and the signatures should be the same: 
         Certificate of Separation from Employment
         Certificate of Non-Advancement of SSS Maternity Benefit 
         L-501 Form (2 copies)                                                 

NOTEIf your company has closed down, and you can no longer find the owners, ask SSS if you can submit instead an Affidavit of Separation from Employment. SSS usually checks its records if your former company has indeed closed down.

  4. Hello JK.

    I send this message in behalf of my wife. It is better that i ask this rather than wait the long lines and pass the requirements for maternity benefit for nothing. Not worth my time spend useless po.

    The story is...my first child was born june 21, 2012. Me and my wife got separated altogether from the company last feb 28, 2012. We just got married this april 9, 2016.

    She started working from the same company as i was working last sept. 1, 2010. She had her contributions paid and updated from jan 2011 up to feb 2012 (this i will check again).

    The issue is..can we still get something despite it is almost 5yrs have passed since the birth of my first child?

    Your comment is highly appreciated. Thank you very much po.
