New SSS Coding Scheme | Based on Last Digit of SS or ER Number

As additional precautionary measures following the country’s pandemic-related protocols, the Social Security System (SSS) implemented a new coding scheme for all allowed walk-in transactions done inside any of the SSS branches. 

Starting October 19, the members, employers, or any SSS visitors shall only be allowed inside the SSS offices once a week, depending on the last digit of their SS number or Employer (ER) ID Number.

The Number Coding was enforced to control the volume of people inside the SSS branch.

The new coding scheme is only for the following transactions:

  • Contribution payment and loan amortization;
  • Personal appearance as a requirement for online SS Number application;
  • UMID Card pick-up;
  • Submission/presentation of the original copies of documentary requirements for claim application; and
    • For funeral or death claims, the claimant shall base the schedule according to the deceased’s SS number.
