Does SSS accept cash cards or prepaid cards?
Yes, but get a cash card or prepaid card that can contain up to 100,000 pesos.
 
The generic BDO cash card can contain only up to 10,000 pesos at a time.
Kung 41,600 pesos ang maternity benefit mo, hindi makakapasok ang benefit sa cash card mo.

Puede ang UMID card

You  can also use your SSS UMID card as your ATM card, but you need first to activate your UMID card at Union Bank kiosks at SSS branches in:

Diliman
Manila
Buendia
Pioneer
Baguio
Cebu
Davao

    1. Hi adriel, find a bank with low opening deposit amount, like Landbank (500 pesos), Eastwest (100 pesos - Basic account), City State (500), One Network Bank.
      Puede pa rin yata ang cheque, pero mas matagal. Kung hindi ka pa puedeng mag-open ng bank account, punta ka na lang sa SSS branch mo and ask.

    1. Hi Dyanne, I hope you'll get your benefit this January. If SSS got your bank name and account no. and a copy of your deposit slip or atm card with account no., then SSS will deposit your benefit to your bank account, but if not, it will be delivered to you by registered mail.

  14. Hi gud evening ask ko lang kung anong bank pwede mag open acc.para sa sss maternity ko? Kylangan pa kasi ng bank acc. Tnx

  15. Hi. Update ko lang din para sa reference ng iba. kasi isa rin ako na nakibasa dito heheh.

    My wife submitted here Maternity Benifits(1 & 2) on May 1, 2017.
    weeks after that, when we checked SSS online, it is stated as CLAIM SETTLED.
    By June 27, she finally received her money on her bank account.

    there is also a bit of discrepancy on the back details that we provided. The bank servicing branch that she provided to SSS was Makati Pasong Tamo.

    While her Bank account servicing branch is actually Makati Insular Ayala.

    despite the error. We still have received the money on her account.

    Thanks! ^_^
