SSS Death Benefit Claim Form

Screenshot of the SSS Death Benefit Claim Form DDR-1

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.

Requirements in filing for SSS Death Benefit Claim:

1. Death claim application (SSS DDR-1)
2. Affidavit of claimant or Filer’s Affidavit
3. DDR Savings Account Form
4. Passbook (for pension)
5. Report of Death (if cause of death is related to employment)
6. SSS Form CLD 13A (Affidavit for Death Claim, if claimant is a secondary beneficiary)
7. SSS Form CLD 13 (Joint affidavit, if claimant is a legal heir)
8. ID photos of claimant
9. Valid IDs of claimant
10. If deceased member is married, marriage certificate of deceased member, issued by NSO or certified by the Local Civil Registrar
11. If deceased member has minor child or children, birth certificates of minor and children, certified by the Local Civil Registrar or issued by NSO
12. If deceased member has a child with permanent disability, birth certificate of child with disability, certified by the Local Civil Registrar or issued by NSO
14. If single, the deceased member’s birth certificate and marriage certificate of the parents, certified by the Local Civil Registrar, or issued by NSO
15. Other papers required by SSS during claim processing because of deficiency of information in documents submitted

  • Angie Tan says:

    My father was member of sss with sss card and number. He died 2002 at the age of 84. Prior to his death we have already inquired at the sss office, but somehow they too cannot trace his record. Now that he is death how much more can we do with his case. My mom now also 84, should have been the beneficiary.
    However, in as much as we wanted file papers documents etc to find out my father’s record, the SSS officer are also at lost to what is our next step.
    I am clueless where to begin and which agency we can go to start the process of retrieving my father’s record.
    Hope you can enlighten me on this matter. Thanks, Angie

    nagfile ako ng death claim dito sa malabon sattelite office..kaso nireject ang application ko dahil hnd tinanggap nung nag assist sa akin yung requirements na pinasa ko..hinahanpan ako ng exact date ng death ng lolo ko na namatay at missing dahil captive sya ng mga hapon during WW2..kumuha ako sa national archive ang nakalagay sometime in 1942 dahil wala nga nakaalam kung kelan kahit lola ko hnd na yun nalaman. gusto nila alamin ko rin ang parents ng lolo ko na wala nga nakakilala dahil ng ipanganak ang tatay ko jan 1942 that same year din namatay ang lolo ko. kahit ako hnd ko alam ang mga fullname nila dahil mga dugong kastila. nag asawa uli ang lola ko at na question n naman dahil 1991 namatay at married ang status..ngayon gusto nung empleyado ng sss magpasa ako ng death cert nung 2nd husband? anong kinalaman nun? tapos kelangan ko pa ilista lahat ng mga kapatid sa labas ng lolo ko at mga anak. tapos kelangan maghanap ako ng pinsan ng tatay ko na makakapag testimonya ng pagkamatay ng lolo ko..namatay ang tatay ko age lahat ng half brother patay na. ayaw naman nila ng testimony ng mga pamangkin ng tatay ko..Ganito ba talaga nila kung pahirapan ang claimant? nakakawalang gana ng mag file..wala man lang consideration..

  • Irish Simbillo says:

    Gud evening po.Ask ko lang po kung pano gagawin sa pag claim ng death /burial benefit ng father ko.Pensioner na po sya ng sss.Aug 11 2013 lang po siya namatay.He is 83 yrs old. Born Feb.14 1930.Pero sa record ng sss born feb.14 1925.nagkamali lang lang daw po ng pag file ng date of birth nung ng apply sa sss.negative po sa nso ang birth certificate nya pati s local civil registrar dito sa lugar namin dahil panahon pa daw ng world war II. Kaya wala na daw pong record.Wala din po syang record ng baptismal cerificate.ang nakalagay na pong date of birth nya sa death certificate ay feb 14,1930 dahil yun po ang alam namin.pano po kaya gagawin ko para maayos ang problem na ito tungkol sa date of birth ng father ko.anu po kaya ang pwede naming iproduce na documents para maayos ito?maiaayos pa po ba ito?makapag claim pa bo ba kaya para sa burial? pwede po ba maitransfer sa mother ko ang pension ng father ko?buhay pa po ang mother ko.

  • Vicky Ballesteros says:

    Hello po! Nag file ako ng death claim ng husband ko sa main office ninyo sa east avenue quezon city noong May 2014. Ang sabi ay manual verification pa daw nila yung previous employer ng husband ko at sinabihan ako na balikan ko daw after a month. Namatay po ang husband ko noong May 14, 2014 at na claim ko naman po yung funeral benefit niya bago nailibing. Since limited lang po ang bakasyon ko at kailangan ko na rin bumalik sa trabaho ko (canada) napag-iwanan ko po. Gusto ko lang po malaman kung ayos na po yung verificattion ng previous employer na siya ang kulang lang noon. I hope na masagot po ninyo ang queries ko ito para malaman ko po at para ma follow din po ng anak ko na siya ang binigyan ko ng authorization na mag claim. Hope to hear from you soon. Thank you.
