ANSWER:
Since your due date is March 2015, your Semester of Contingency is Oct 2014 to March 2015.
SSS will look for your 6 highest salary credits with the 12 months prior to your semester of contingency, which are the months of Oct 2013 to Sep 2014.

Your 6 highest salary credits within the said 12-month period are:

Nov 2013 - 1,560 - 15,000
Dec 2013 - 1,560 - 15,000
Jan 2014 - 1,705 - 15,500
Apr 2014 - 1,760 - 16,000
May 2014 - 1,760 - 16,000
Jun 2014 - 1,760 - 16,000

Add your 6 highest salary credits.
Your total salary credit is 93,500.

Divide your total salary credit by 180 days.
93,500 / 180 = 519.44

Multiply by 60 days (if normal delivery).
519.44 x 60 = 31,166.67

Multiply by 78 days (if Cesarean Section or CS).
519.44 x 78 = 40,516.32

If you delivered normally, your SSS maternity benefit is:
31,166.67 pesos

If you delivered by CS, your SSS maternity benefit is:
40,516.32 pesos
