SSS Maternity Benefits

I have been a member of Social Security System even before graduating from college. I remember they used to have their booth in our school during our foundation week and they encourage the students to sign up. Right there, I became a member without monthly contribution until I had my first job.

I wasn’t totally aware of the benefits I am entitled of being an SSS member. All I know that every month a portion of my salary will be deducted for the SSS contribution, which I thought it was only a torture to my pocket. I never thought of those benefits until I get pregnant with my eldest. Although I gave birth to our son in Kuala Lumpur, I was still able to avail of the Maternity Benefits as I have continued paying the monthly contribution while working overseas and that made me qualified for the maternity benefits.

sss maternity benefits
For the second time, I have received my maternity reimbursement from SSS. So for preggy moms who are members of SSS, here’s how to avail of your maternity benefits.

First off, who are legible for maternity benefits? Ofcourse, female members who have paid at least three monthly contributions within the 12-month period immediately preceding the semester of her childbirth and has given the required notification of her pregnancy through her employer if employed, or to the SSS if voluntary or self-employed, OFW or separated member.

To notify SSS about your pregnancy, file a Maternity Notification. Of which you have to fill up MAT 1 form together with your ultrasound report. If you are employed, you can file through your company’s Human Resource or any SSS branch near you if you are a voluntary member. For OFW, authorization letter is required if applying through a representative. Be sure to file no more than 60 days from the date of conception. But you can still file Maternity Notification even if it’s way over 60 days. I have done this with my two pregnancies.

Then once you gave birth, you have to apply for maternity reimbursement. You will have to fill up the maternity reimbursement form commonly known as Mat 2 and submit it to the nearest SSS branch together with your notification and your child’s birth certificate. Then just wait for your check to be delivered to your house. I received mine, two weeks after filing for reimbursement.

On my next post I will share how to incash check issued by SSS.

    Its quite a relief getting the benefits of what you religiously paid for. Its really advisable to get secured and take advantage of getting something in return during those needy times.

    • kara claudine says:

      i’ve read the previous posts and nakakainggit kasi ang bilis dumating nun mga cheke nyo…sakin kasi late filing because i didnt know that i can file a claim pala when i gave birth to my eldest nun 2009 so 2013 na ko nakapagfile. september ko pa finile yun until now wala pa.for review ang status nya online.ano kaya ibig sabihin nun?

  2. Franc Ramon says:

    It’s good that you are benefiting from SSS along with all those on maternity leave. Social security works.

  3. rj's mama says:

    I haven’t updated my contribution, sayang nga I wasn’t to get a maternity benefit :(

  4. It truly pays that SSS brings security to our lives or in times when we need it most. I am still young yet looking forward to reaping the said benefits from this agency.

  5. jeu-izah montuno says:

    hi just receive an email from sss telling me na qualified nga ako to avail of the maternity reimbursement, but im still confused about mat-1 and mat2, i already have 2 kids one is 5 years old and youngest is 4, i wasn’t fully aware of the said benefits before kaya i didn’t file any of that, i was a voluntary member before and yun nga qualified ako na magfile, what requirements would i need to submit? do i need to secure mat-1 padin maski na tapos na ang child birth ko? what about pregnancy test?thanks in advance po

    • adminbevz says:

      Hi! I am not sure about your case sis, since mejo matagal na ung pregnancies mo. Much better if you inquire directly sa SSS. As for the requirements naman, you need to attach ultrasound result sa Mat1 application mo and for reimbursement attach you child’s birth certificate to your Mat2 application.

      • izah says:

        hi sis thanks much, im not sure if i can still print out ultrasound copy, possible ba kumuha ng copy sa hospital? kasi nilagay ko sa album ang utz copy ko and ayun nag fade ang pictures nya=(

        • Eliana says:

          Hi, Izah! :)

          Filing of the MAT-1 form must be at least 60 days from the date of conception but not later than the date of delivery.

          In my opinion, I am afraid you can no longer claim your maternity benefits since you have given birth already. However, just to make sure you may go o the SSS office in your area.

          God bless you! :)

    • adminbevz says:

      • christine C says:

        • momsicle says:

          I have applied for maternity reimbursement twice and definitely dumadating naman po ung check. Better follow up na lng po sa SSS.

  11. j-gabz-r says:

    hi adminbevz,
    andito po ako ngyn sa malaysia. pede po ba mag submit by email ng maternity reimbursement? wala na kc sa pinas ang sister ko para mag submit. i gave birth last oct 17 here in malaysia.. kaso di ko pa na submit ng MAT-2 di na kc naasikaso ng ate ko bago sya umalis ng pinas.
    also for CS delivery medical report from the hospital OK na ba yun?

    Thank you..

    • momsicle says:

      Birth certificate lng ang requirements when reimbursing sa SSS. But with CS, im not sure if need pa ng medical report/cert. If pwede mag submit by email, that I don’t know po.

  12. Beverly D says:

    Hello, I’m employed under a BPO Company and I already have 7 contributions so far. Do you have any idea how much can I get from my Maternity Benefits. Thank you

  13. Yvett Chavez says:

    Hi, I’m about to give birth next week. And so far natanggap ko na yung first check ko. Ang akala ko kasi I’ll receive the whole benefit in full. Kalahati lang yung binigay sa akin, and then yung kalahati daw kasama na sa reimbursement. It depends kung Normal or CS ako. Pero according to SSS:
    How would the claimant be paid the maternity benefit?

    For employed members – the benefit is advanced by the employer to the qualified employee, “in full” , within 30 days from the date of filing of the maternity leave application. The SSS, in turn, shall immediately reimburse the employer 100 percent of the amount of maternity benefit advanced to the female employee upon receipt of satisfactory proof of such payment and legality thereof.

    Yung kilala ko na nasa ibang company, binigay sa kanya, “in full” before sya mag leave. This is my first baby by the way and I still don’t know kung Normal delivery or CS ako. Need answers po. Thank you! :)

    • momsicle says:

      Im a volunteer member kc sis, so I don’t know how it goes for those employed members. I normally get my benefit in full.

  14. annabel canales says:

    i gave birth last january 4, 2013. cs po ako. i passed all the requirements nung february 7 pa po, they said 2-3 weeks daw we can get na yung check, but until now wala pa din. when i checked the status of my sss maternity benefit, i saw there that my reimbursement is denied due to *wrong encoding. i followed up sss malabon branch where i passed my requirements, they say it’s still on process and as per them i need to wait. oh, God malapit na mag 2 months wla pa din feedback. is there any caes po na katulad sakin? i really need the money also.. thanks..

    • sarah says:

      my gosh gurl ako rin grabe yang sss denied rin sakin gawa ng true copy of bertcerti..tas nagpunta ako sss sabi naman ibabalik daw sakin ung docs ko…eh 1 month and 2 weeks na nun madenied until now wala pdin docs ko…grabe cla

      • momsicle says:

        madali lng nmn kumuha ng true copy of birth certificate sis? sayang naman kung un lng ang reason why nadeny.

  15. blueangel says:

    Nagwork din po ko before sa BPO. 6 lang po nging contribution ko then ngstop n ko work after that. KUNG malaki contribution mo po sa SSS, malaki din mkukuha mo. Me kasi I received 23,500 kahit pa 6 mos lng nhulog ko sa sss eversince. It depends tlga sa last 6 months na hulog mo preceeding ur giving birth. dun kasi binabase un makukuha mo.

  16. dee ira says:


    • momsicle says:

      I think as long as you have contribution for the last 6 months prior to delivery you are entitled sa benefits. To be sure, better inquire directly sa sss na lng.

  17. ssshugar says:

    hi sis. ask ko lng kng entitled ako s maternity benefits. employed ako before pro nun jul-sep 2012 d ako nkabayad kase i worked abroad. pro nabayaran ko un oct-dec 2012. so far complete paymmt ko for 2013. aug 4 2013 ang due ko. tska when is the best time to submit the mat1 form? thnx sis :)

    • momsicle says:

      as far as I know you should have atleast 6months continuous payment before delivery. Mat1 form should be submitted not later three months after conception. Not sure though, please check na lng sa website ng SSS.

  18. christine says:

    hi! ask koh lang poh panupag nanganak ka g august 2012 tapos april 2012 ka lang nagstart mgcontributions , makaka avail ka ba ng maternity benefits pag nakahulog ka continously from april 2012 onwards??? please reply

  19. mary says:

    i get mad bcoz untill now wla pa ung maternity reimburhment to ngfile po ako latg feb 26,2013.a sabi ng agency ko wala pa daw cheque…sana nman hindi nla INIIPIT ing pra sana sa akin..

    • momsicle says:

      why is it may agency na involve sis? I personally filed for maternity reimbursement, no need for agency. 2 weeks lng dumating na check sa house…


    It sounds easy for you guys to get your maternity reimbursement. i got pregnat last may 2009 i filled mat 1 last sept of the same year. i gave birth to may daughter jan 09 2010 in japan. i filled for reimbursement last december of 2010 when i came back. The staff of SSS STA. MARIA, bulacan branch told me that i need to secure a paper from from the consulate of the phils in japan to prove the birth. I provided the birth cert. in japan written in japanese but i had it translated in english.i leave a way far from embassy or consulate. can somebody nhelp me pls.

    • momsicle says:

      hi Elesa! I gave birth with my eldest in Kuala Lumpur. I was able to get reimbursement naman. I submitted my son’s birth certificate while applying for reimbursement and a copy of ultra sound report during mat 1. During this period I was in KL so I just send an authorization letter to my sister to carry out the application. In lessthan a month nakuha ko reimbursement. I applied sa diliman branch.

  21. aniebe says:

    ask ko po, i was SSS member for 15 years, but i was already resigned na for almost 2 years.And i was pregnant for my 2nd baby now, Paano po ba ang proseso para makuha ko maternity benefits ko, and pano ba ang computation kung un-employed na.

    • momsicle says:

      you should have paid at least three monthly contributions within the 12-month period immediately preceding the semester of your delivery.

  22. conniemariecampos says:

    hi! please help me.. I am a member of SSS since 2010 complete yung contributions ko until january 2013. I resigned Feb 2013 and now I am almost 6 month pregnant, I will be giving birth on Sept 2013. Can I still file my maternity directly to SSS? or I have to update first my contribution as voluntary member? Please help me I am about to go later to SSS las pinas branch for this. Thanks!

    • momsicle says:

      not sure about this jamjam…beter inquire directly sa sss. Helpful nman ung mga tao dun

    • Jet Chua says:

      Hi, we have the same case. You can pay your sss and indicate voluntary member so that they can update your status from employed to voluntary. You file Mat 1 to SSS DILIMAN branch. Then after you give birth you submit Mat 2, birth certificate of child duly stamped by the local registry, Certificate of none advancement of maternity from your previous employer and L501 form also from previous employer. If ceasarian you may add clinical abstract and OR technique (you may request this from the hospital). Complete all of these you will get your maternity benefit.

  28. Jojo says:

    Hi! I gave birth last dec.2012 here in ksa and no plans of having a vacation for the next 2 yrs. my question is,do you have an idea f i can still claim my maternity benefit by that time? If so,what are the requiremnts/ submit. By the way. I am an active member but i stop for a yr.i just resume my contribution last april 2012 til present. Am i qualified to claim the said benefit? Thank you so much

  29. aryce pascual says:

    I filed the documents that sss needs and I waited for 5 months for my maternity benefits. Tapos last may 20 binalik sakin yung mga requirements na ipinasa ko denied daw kxe wala akong cert. of separation but I provided the affidavit of separation since wala na ako sa company and dissolve na yung dating company ko. Sinunod ko lng naman yung nakalagay sa citezen’s charter ng sss. Tapos sa system ng sss nla ndi nagdeclare na sarado na yung company. pinuntahan ko yung dating building ng company sabi ng admin wala n daw dun..nagtanung tanung ako sa mga dati ko na officemate wala na nga daw. Pano ako makakapagprovide ng document na hinahanap nila eh kung wala n nga? hindi ko na ba makukuha yung benefits ko na yun kung complete naman yung hulog ko? One more thing ang sabi ni Mrs. Abrenica hindi daw sila ang responsible sa paghahanap ng dati ko n company.panu mo mahahanap ang isang company na hindi na nageexist? Dba trabaho yun ng field inspectorate nla? Panu naman yung ibang mga members ng sss na may problema n katulad ko at nkapaghulog ng maayos? Mababalewa nlng yung benipisyo? Please give me an advice..thanks

  30. tine rabina says:

    • momsicle says:

      as long as you have paid at least three monthly contributions within the 12-month period immediately preceding the semester of her childbirth i think you are legible for maternity benefit.

  32. Iam says:

    I had a miscarriage six months ago. The only document that’s lacking is the histopath as there has been a miscommunication between my OB and the hospital attendant. We were not instructed to bring the specimen to a pathologist. Can they still consider my claim?

  43. Thonie says:

    Hi. Hope someone can answer my question. I’m working abroad (dubai) and i’m about to deliver na anytime now. Kaso i haven’t filed my mat 1. Puede pa rin ba me mg-claim ng reimbursement without filing mat 1? Kc feeling ko ndi na cxa aabot since nasa abroad ako at need ko pa i-file un sa pinas through my family. Thanks.

  44. Jocelyn says:

    Hello :) I’ve read you gave birth in KL, when you submitted the Form Mat1, was the ultrasound result authenticated by The Philippine Embassy in Malaysia before you sent it to SSS? I’m assuming you had your ultrasound in KL. In my case, I notified SSS online about my pregnancy and there was no requirement. But they might ask me of a copy of the ultrasound when I’l file for the benefit claim. I had my ultrasound and baby here in Australia. Thank you and God bless!

      Actually they were asking for it the first time my sister inlaw applied for it, I just send her scanned copy of the ultrasound lng kc. But when she went to different branch of SSS, they accepted it naman. Pero beter yet have it authenticated na lang para no hassle. :)

I am planning to start my voluntary contribution just now, any advice if I should pursue? Makaka-claim pa din kaya ako if I am due anytime May2016? Thank u so much! :)

      you are eligible if you have paid at least three monthly contributions within the 12-month period immediately preceding the semester of her childbirth and has given the required notification of your pregnancy. However Please verify directly to any sss branch…
