He clarified that proceeds of this loan program are not sure to be made through online bank crediting because SSS officials are still finalizing agreements with several banks “but definitely, the benefits that have been approved earlier can be sent to the members’ bank accounts anytime.”
SSS Calamity Loan Deadline
The deadline for the application for the calamity loan or CLAP is until September 14, 2020. Since the declaration of the State of Calamity is all over the Philippines from March to September 2020, all SSS members can apply for this loan as long as they meet the required number of paid contributions.
