Need immediate extra cash? If you’re an SSS member and a consistent contributor, then you are in luck! You can now process your loan in the safety of your home through the My.SSS portal. Just provide the necessary documents and make sure to meet the requirements, and you will receive your loan funds in no time.
One of the services the Philippine Social Security System (SSS) offers is the SSS salary loan, which has low-interest rates unlike any other. The amount you can loan will also be based on your existing contributions, which means the funds loaned are partly yours.
SSS Salary loan details
SSS members eligible for the salary loan are the following:
- At least 36 months consistent contribution;
- Currently employed with the employer for at least a year;
- Monthly contributions must be up-to-date;
- Has not been granted the final benefit such as total permanent disability, retirement, or death;
- Must be under the age of sixty-five (65) at the time of the application;
- Has not been disqualified due to fraud committed against SSS
Note: The amount of the loan will be based on the SSS member’s total contribution.
A one-month salary loan is equivalent to the average of the borrower’s latest posted 12 Monthly Salary Credits (MSCs), or the amount applied for, whichever is lower. Meanwhile, a two-month salary loan is equivalent to twice the average of the borrower’s latest poster 12 MSCs, rounded to the next higher monthly salary credit, or amount applied for, which is lower. The net amount of the loan shall then be the difference between the approved loan amount and all outstanding balance short-term member loans.
Schedule of Payment
According to SSS, the loan shall be payable within two (2) years in 24 monthly installments. Monthly amortizations will then start on the 2nd month following the date of the loan, which is due on or before the payment deadline. See the image below for example.
Payment shall be made at any nearby SSS branch, SSS-accredited bank, or SSS-authorized payment center.
A service fee of one (1) percent of the loan amount shall be charged and deducted from the proceeds of the loan.
SSS member-borrower is eligible to renew loan after payment of at least 50 percent of the original principal amount and at least 50 percent of the term has lapsed. Accordingly, proceeds of the renewal loan is any amount greater than or equal to zero, as long as the outstanding balance on the previous loan is deducted.
In case the member-borrower transfers employment, he/she must submit to his/her new employer an updated statement of account of any outstanding loan balance with SSS and allow his employer to deduct from his/her salary the corresponding amortization due, including any interest/or penalty for late remittance.
