SSS Online Registration: Steps For Members And Employers4 min read
The Social Security System (SSS) is moving towards digital processes to improve its services. It allows for online registration for its members through its portals.
This online onboarding procedure applies to two SSS online platforms:
- SSS Member Portal. This is the new SSS website that is accessible to members only. It is an upgrade of the previous version with a better design and can be opened on any browser at a higher speed.
- My.SSS. This is the old version, but still working. Both members and employers can use this online portal but only on a specific browser, which is Internet Explorer 11.
Don’t worry if you haven’t tried using the portal. In this guide, we’ll show you how to create an SSS account online and navigate through the website for different transactions.
What is the SSS Member Portal?
SSS Online, or SSS Member Portal, is a platform for members to access their account details and perform transactions with the SSS through the internet or mobile devices.
Users can access and print their account records like contributions, benefit claims, or loan repayments. My.SSS also enables users to file for application of SSS loans or benefits.
The portal saves users from going to the agency’s physical offices and enables them to avoid long queues and travel time.
