What to do with lost SSS ID
So you have a lost SSS ID a few months ago but not over a year ago. What you wanted to know at first is how do you deal with it. What requirements you need to produce to be able to get a replacement for your lost SSS ID and where can you go to apply for it. So if you are asking the same questions, chances are we have been to the same situation before. I also lost mine maybe more than 10 years ago and already got it replaced. With this regard, here is a short guide on what to do if you lost your SSS ID.
Step By Step Procedures on What to do for Lost SSS ID
Step 1: Get yourself an affidavit of loss (some would call it affidavit of lost for some weird reason). You can get this in any City Hall office where you can also find public attorney offices to do the notarization for you. Be sure to prepare the story of how you ended up with your lost SSS ID as you will be asked by the typist who will make the affidavit for you. Here is where you will state briefly how you lost your SSS number or ID.
step 2: Have your affidavit of loss duly signed by an attorney at law or lawyer (ipa-notaryo or notarize).
Step 3: You can download the SSS ID E6 application form from the official website of the Social Security System Philippines. If you don’t know it, then you can either type in your browser this URL – https://www.sss.gov.ph/ or click it. You will be redirected to the official site.
Step 4: Go to the nearest SSS branch in your area of from where you are staying right now and get yourself a number from the guard or desk officer for the line on the SSS customer service to submit your lost SSS ID requirements. If you can make a call and get entertained, then better (chances are you will not get entertained based on my experience even if you use the SSS hotline number but you can always try).
