SSS Death and Funeral Benefit Claim Requirements
The Social Security System is the agency of the Philippines government that handles all social security insurance and benefits for Pinoys whether working abroad or locally / employed or not. What is important for anybody looking forward to claim different benefits offered by this agency is for the member to know the list of requirements and how to file the claim.
Sad to say that even the official SSS website doesn’t have a concrete clear guide for Filipinos who are members of the SSS and for this, I am looking forward to help in my own small way by searching through the internet and using Google Search to find relevant and useful information to feature here at Internet Philippines.
Eventually, I am looking forward to establish a brand that will stick to the mind of my blog visitors that this website was put up to help people and to provide important classified and practical tips and information that aims to guide them.
Today I went online again only to find so many comments on a post I wrote a couple of months ago regarding a comprehensive guide on how to file for SSS death benefit claim. It seems that this is not enough as I was not able to find the comprehensive list of requirements for this particular claim for Pinoys to completely use my information to their advantage. Today, I am glad to announce though that I finally found a classified information by searching again to ease out and be able to answer clamors and requests by my blog visitors to feature the list of requirements for use in SSS death and funeral benefits claim procedure. Here they are below.
