Deadline for Filing Your SSS Maternity Benefit Claim

By KD

Until when am I allowed to I file my SSS maternity benefit claim?

You have 10 years from your delivery date to file your SSS maternity benefit claim.

But it's best to file your claim as soon as you have completed the required documents.
In case there are defects in your documents, you can remedy them more easily because your company or former company where you worked, or the hospital or clinic where you had an operation is still existing.

If you file your claim after some years from delivery date, be ready to explain to SSS why you waited so long before filing.

When should I file my MAT1?
Anytime from your 60th day of pregnancy to the day before your delivery date.

But file your MAT1 soon after your 60th day so you'll have already notified SSS in case a miscarriage happens.

If you're voluntary, OFW, self-employed, or non-working wife, you can make your maternity notification online through your online SSS account. 

If you are employed, and your employer has an online SSS account, your employer will notify SSS through your employer's online SSS account.

    1. Hi rosen: August or September 2016 ka ba nanganak? Meron ka bang at least 3 contributions within Apr 2015 to March 2016? Kung Oct 2016 ka nanganak, meron ka bang at least 3 contributions within July 2015 to June 2016? If yes, you are qualified to claim your benefit. Nag-file ka ba ng maternity notification sa SSS? Kung hindi, I hope ma-consider kasi sabi naman sa rules na kapag sa DOH-accredited hospital ka nanganak, puede nang walang notification.

  3. Hi Rosemarie Eligible ka ba noon for the benefit? Hindi mo lang kasi alam? Or employed ka ba noon? At hindi ka lang nila nasabihang mag-file?
    Merong kang at least 3 contributions within the 12 months prior to your semester of delivery?
    Tingnan natin yong case ng youngest mo. When is his/her birthday? and tell me the months na meron kang contributions within the 15 to 16 months before his/her birthday. Anong hospital ka nanganak? Tinanong ko lang kasi meron silang instruction about DOH-accreditation

    1. Hi leia: Okay lang. Rest ka muna. Puede kang mag-file ng claim pag very strong ka na. 10 years naman ang time frame to file, so kahit matagalan ka pa sa pag-file, pero siempre mag-file ka na as soon as you can.

  6. hello po..tanong ko lang po, im on my 8th month of pregnancy at hindi pa po n.approve yung maternity notification ko. Binigay ko po ang mga docs needed for my mat 1 sa employer ko kaso nagkaproblema po sa I.D. ko dahil wala pa po akong I.D. na gamit ang family name ng husband ko. Nag-attached po ako sa mat 1 ko ng marriage contract and nbi clearance kaso my problema sa signature q sa clearance. My alam po ba kayong other options na pwde kung gawin pra m.approved na po yung notification ko? Hindi din kasi ako makakuha ng philhealth i.d kasi indigent yung status ko sa philhealth. Kung kukuha po ako ulit ng nbi clearance it will take 10 working days bago ko makuha dahil hit ang name ko, baka ma.abutan na po ako ng due date ko.

  19. Hi , just want to ask if the 10 yrs prescription period for SSS maternity claims also applies to an employer? The situation is that, as employer, we already advanced the maternity benefits to the employee but upon return to work, the employee in one way or another fails to complete the require sss docs leaving us with huge receivables from SSS. In addition , is it legal to pay the materinty benefits in 2 transches, say 50% before the ML schedule and the other half upon completion of the docs from the employee? Thanks for you advise
