    To whom this may concern,

    I have been a member of sss since 1980″s.And I have already an old ID.In fact I have completed the number of contributions required in order to receive pension,but I decide to still continue giving my contributions till now.
    My concern is that, I have applied my new ID for 3 times already ( with digital photo needed as it was done in sss branch Butuan City)and the last application was last year.I have series of applications is always at a lost since it never came to my post everytime.It is my husband always following it up bec.I can be home only once a year from abroad.How to do about it?Do I have to pursue it? and submit the above requirements? If ever same thing happens,Does my old ID without picture ,enough in case I will be receiving my pension soon?

    I hope you can advise me.Thanks so much..

    From: Mrs.Milagros Delmonte Torralba- SSS# 08-0882435-2

  • Raphael de Ocampo says:

    I already have an SSS number and have completed my contribution. However I could not retrieve my old original ID card.

    Should I have to accomplish an Affidavit of Loss to get the new SSS ID card? Where do I process the application?

    Thank you for your attention.

    • Philippines Review says:

      You will need po the death certificate unang una… ipresent nyo po ito sa nearest SSS branch and from there tanong nyo na po kung ano pa ang kailangan.

  • guadalupe ormilla says:

    where can i get a new sss id.. is that important that i need to come in main sss?

    • Philippines Review says:

      It seems na only the main SSS had the ID capture machine for SSS ID application so it is best to go there if you don’t want to end up going to branches where the machines are either long broken or not running.

  • irma says:

    i am already entitled to apply for SSS retirement. problem is i do not have a birth certificate and a baptismal certificate—was born in zamboanga and baptised there but it would be too expensive to fly there and ask parish for certificate of baptismal. what secondary documents should i present to sss in lieu of birth and baptismal? i already have NSO certificate of no birth cert found


  • Adelfa says:

    mag aapply ako ng work dito sa Laguna, i am required to submit SSS. anong pwede kong gawin kasi nawala ko yung papers ko ng SSS? please respond thank you!

  • mia says:

    and one more thing, wala ako SSS ID, pero may binigay sakin na paper before (yun yung nawala ko). does it mean na kailangan ko ulit mag apply para sa bagong SSS or mag apply ako for a lost SSS?

  • sheryl says:

    can i apply for sss( voluntary contribution) if i am a gsis member

    • Philippines Review says:

      No, you can’t po. From my understanding, if you are an active member and paying your contribution to the GSIS, hindi po pwedeng magkasabay ito sa SSS. What you can do is to migrate your GSIS account to your SSS. Please do note that you cannot do it the other way (or it is not allowed to migrate your SSS account contributions to your GSIS).

  • Fe C. Marcellus says:

    To be able to get the title of our house and lot from the SSS, I need several documents one of which is my SSS ID card. I know my SSS number but I do not recall having been issued a card while I was still working in Manila (1976 to 1990). I am now a German citizen. How can I be issued an SSS ID card? Thank you for your answer.

  • Iss says:

    I just called SSS to ask about my yaya’s SSS id that she has been waiting for 2 years already. According to them, SSS HAS STOPPED MAKING IDs AND DONT’ KNOW WHEN THEY WILL RESUME MAKING IDs

    • Philippines Review says:

      The Social Security System Philippines has stopped manufacturing the plastic / hard card ID but they are still accepting applications for new SSS ID in branches where you can find image / photo capturing machine. I suggest that you go straight to the head office or main branch para mag apply.

  • Angelita D. Navarro says:


    I have to fix an error on my name in SSS. It’s only my middle name though. I
    ve already secured a notarized affidavit of 2 disinterested persons, my marriage contract, and my NSO bcert. The problem is, my bcert is late registered. So, they are asking for my baptismal cert. I went to the church which my mom told me I was baptized, but my record doesn’t appear there. What would I do? Is there any other document I could submit in place of my baptismal cert?

    Pls help me. I can’t avail the benefits due to me and my family because of this. Thanks =)

  • Syd Castillo says:

    My not-so-happy letter to SSS regarding the middle name (and not middle initials) on the new digital unified SSS ID. I hope you don’t make the same mistake. , Enjoy reading!

    Dear Sir/Ma’am


    About an hour ago, I came from the Social Security System (SSS) Office at your branch located at the G/F SSS Makati Building, 6782 Ayala Avenue corner V. A. Rufino Street, Makati City. And I am not happy.

    I wanted to replace my lost SSS Identification Card and I was impressed how efficient SSS was, on using its website to disseminate information. I downloaded the forms I needed and followed the instructions on the form. Brought with me the required forms to the SSS Branch Office and started to queue. I was online for about 30 minutes. The line was very organized and the Securtity Guards were very friendly.

    When my time came to be served, the gentleman on the counter, who was very polite, informed me that I do not have the complete documents. He further informed me that SSS is in the process of upgrading its ID System and as such, the system changed from middle initials to full middle names. This information was not in your website and I was upset because this entails that I have to apply for a birth certificate and I have to return back again. Not to mention the time it will take! If you are on my shoes, I am sure you will also get upset.

    In your SSS ID page in your website –

    Since you provide world-class services to your members (that’s your vision, by the way), there should be an advise somewhere that SSS is updating its system, explaining that the old system only carried middle initials and to change it to middle names, one should bring a birth certificate from the National Statistical Office. Furthermore, it is really amazing how illogical for a government agency not to honor a public document. I had my passport, which shows my middle name, but SSS does not honor If you do not honor the passport. If you do not honor the passport, then why do you put in your website that SSS Form E-6 must be submitted together with any of the following primary documents – one of them is the Passport. I find this very bureaucratic.

    Even the picture of the SSS ID in your website is an old one!

    And one thing more, to avoid people signing the forms with blue ballpoint pen (like what I did), perhaps you should consider putting the word “Use Black Ink” as a watermark across the form.

    I feel a victim of your system. I can not do anything but to follow your system. I am at your mercy. I hope you are happy!

    To the SSS management

    Its really very very upsetting, getting replacement sss electronic card. I completed all the requirements for lost ID, and 2x queuing a very very long line just only for the matter of middle initial to change into complete middle name. In a fact that all identity cards are valid with birth certificate, still need to sign e 4 form to change middle initial into complete middle name and again wait for 1 week before you can apply for replacement electronic sss id card. This is a very poor management of SSS never appreciated. Slow process no wonder why our country is no improvement.
    I dont know if only branch in Urdaneta,Pangasinan is like this or nationwide.

    SSS employees are the one who record middle initial we submitted complete names and so therefore it is your mistake and you should rely to the documents that are valid.
    To the SSS mangement Dont let us suffer because if not of us contributers of SSS you are not in your possession. Your duty is to serve us not to make us suffer from our contributions that we are given.

  • Gela says:

    Hello po! I lost my SSS ID, well technically hindi po ako yung naka wala nun, it just never got to me. I had it delivered sa old company that I worked for. I applied Sept 2009 for the ID and I resigned from that company Jan 2010. I asked for print out sa SSS and I found out na na receive nung company na yun. I inquired sa HR office nung company, but they said wala sa kanila. I even made a follow up sa post office and my ID wasnt there too. Im thinking of just having the ID replaced by getting an affidavit of loss but then i will probably wait for months just to get that replacement. I am wondering if there is anything else that I can do. Sabi sa post office, secure daw ako ng printout from SSS and they will “trace” the mail. Sana mapag sabihan din ang companies na pag non existing employees na, sana ibalik nalang ang mail sa postal office para mas madaling ma claim. Kaka stress! How many months ba usually before mo makuha yung replacement ID?

    I am a SSS member since 1986 and last May 16, 2011 , I went to your main office to secure a SSS ID card and I was scheduled last Aug. 25, 2011 for the electronic photo card. Your employee told me that the card will be delivered after 1 month. Now my concern is until now Nov. 16, 2011 I haven;t received any SSS ID card no delivery from both my resident and office. It is almost 3 months now pls. let me know if there;s a chance for me to have my SSS ID card.

    This is a no joke I went to your office twice to east ave. quezon city coming from San Pablo City.
