Ask ko ***. may makukuhang sueldo pa ba mula sa company kung may nakuha mula sa SSS Maternity Benefit?
ang alam ko ala na, bale yung company mo lang ang mag-aadvance sayo ng bayad, then after, sisingilin ng company mo yung SSS. pero nasa company na rin yun kung bibigyan ka pa din ng sweldo aside from the SSS. I just got lucky, kasi aside sa SSS, may sweldo pa, kasi yun na daw eversince ang ginagawa ng company where i work (salamat naman).
I submitted Mat 1 Notification, kaso na-reject at blue ink daw kasi ginamit ko, so online may form at dun ko na fill-up at print then padala sa company ko. Sila na magfile for me. Sabi nung nasa-SSS kahit daw at least 2 months before delivery ang Mat 1 submit, kaso sa likod ng form mismo nakalagay must submit within 60 days of conception, puwede ba naman yun?
nag file ako ng Mat-1,mga 3months pregnant ata ako nun...nakakuha rin ako one month salary from work,aside from the SSS benefit i got.yung philhealth,malaki rin naitulong kasi mga 5K yung na-deduct sa hospital bill ko.
i'm going back to work na this friday and nag advised yung HR namin to submit my all requirements for MAT 2, medical certificate tska birth certificate with violet seal.sana ma process agad kase half pa lang nakuha ko 1 month before ako manganak via cs.
hi! im jst new sa thread na to..ask ko lang kung pwde ba akong magbayad as voluntary kahit na employed ako? gusto ko kcing dagdagan *** contribution ko *** mas malaki ang makuha kong benefits sa sss particularly maternity...pwde ba ang ganitong case? Thanks in advance sa magiging reply nyo.
hi firefoxx! *** ginawa ko nung sa 1st baby ko, wala pang 1 month nakuha ko na *** kabuuan ng maternity benefits ko kc *** BC at operative report na manggagaling sa hospital wala pang 2 wks nakuha na namin tpos pinacertify namin sa city hall kc kung antyin mo sa NSO baka di pa sya nasubmit or kakasubmit pero di pa encoded sa database nila...tapos pinadala ko sa ofc or HR namin...the following day after submission nakuha na namin *** full amount ng mat benefits ko
pwde ba e request sa company mo na e advance yung sss beneifts mo? saka ano ba requirements ng philhealth para maka avail ano *** mga documents na e papasa sa cashier?
sabe sa philhealth as long as may 9 contributions (9 out of 12 / 1 year) ka before ka manganak magagamit mu cia..
sabe pa pag ginawa ako beneficiary ng husband ko iccancel nila *** philhealth ko.. kaya wag na lang.
malaki din mabawas sa bill namen 13-15k din.
***** antay ko na lang *** SSS benefits ko.
depende ba sa monthly contribution kung magkano ang makukuha sa SSS? e paano kapag kambal ang baby? kasi nung nanganak ako sa panganay ko,(normal delivery) ang monthly contribution ko e P1500+ (OFW ako dati)at nakakuha ako ng 30k. tapos nung nag-for good ako, nagbaba rin ako ng contribution, *** P312.00/month. last january nanganak ako ng kambal tapos CS at P18,200.00 lang ang nakuha ko.
sadya bang ganon kahit kambal? sabi kasi nila malaki daw makukuha ko kasi nga kambal. thanks!
Hindi pa kasi kami kasal, tanong ko lang kung anong maternity benefits pwede makuha ng mommy ng baby ko. May contributions naman sha kasi almost 3 years na sha nag ttrabaho. The thing is, nung 3 months preggy sha, tumigil na sha sa work kasi ndi na talaga kaya. Due na sha sa June, so more than 6 months na sha unemployed. Can she still get her govmnt' maternity benefits? Any advice will really be appreciated. TIA.
hi i have a question.. before i was employed pa so may contributions ako s sss but now wala na so voluntary n lang *** status ko. will i still get a reimbursement even if home delivery lang then sa midwife lang? and how long yung process ng reimbursemnt? thanks..
hi medyo naguluhan lang ako. yong SSS benefit na almost 30k hindi mo makukuha ng buo yon? kelan makukuha yong mat1 and mat2?
nung nagfile ako sa sss, 39k nakuha ko kc cs. kelangan lang meron ka 6 contributions prior ka magbuntis. tapos file mu *** mat 1 mu before ka manganak, kc ako 6 months na ko nung mafile ko un.. tapos nung nanganak na ko kinuha ko lang *** operative procedure sa hospital, birth certificate ni baby, saka *** certificate na wala pang inaadvance na pera *** company kung san ka work saka 2 valid ID. tapos immail nila sa house mu *** cheque.. 2 weeks lang inantay namen tapos after a week nareceive na namen.
mat1 - is to inform your company and SSS that you are pregnant
mat2 - is to inform SSS that you already give birth and that your company did not/did advance your monetary benefit.
depende sa company kung makukuha mo ng buo *** benefit mo,
- may ibang company half pag nanganak ka na, half pag balik mo ng work.
- may iba makukuha mo ng buo
- may iba may additional benefit, like paid maternity leave, etc.
SSS Maternity Benefit
What is the maternity benefit?
The maternity benefit is a daily cash allowance granted to a female member who was unable to work due to childbirth or miscarriage.
What are the qualifications for entitlement to the maternity benefit?
1. She has paid at least three monthly contributions within the 12-month period immediately preceding the semester of her childbirth or miscarriage.
2. She has given the required notification of her pregnancy through her employer if employed, or to the SSS if separated, voluntary or self-employed member.
Is the voluntary or self-employed member also entitled to the maternity benefit?
Yes, A voluntary or a self-employed member is entitled to the maternity benefit provided that she meets the qualifying conditions.
How much is the maternity benefit?
The maternity benefit is equivalent to 100 per cent of the member’s average daily salary credit multiplied by 60 days for normal delivery or miscarriage, 78 days for caesarean section delivery.
How is the maternity benefit computed?
1. Exclude the semester of contingency (delivery or miscarriage).
*A semester refers to two consecutive quarters ending in the quarter of contingency.
*A quarter refers to three consecutive months ending March, June, September or December.
2. Count 12 months backwards starting from the month immediately before the semester of contingency.
3. Identify the six highest monthly salary credits within the 12-month period.
*Monthly salary credit means the compensation base for contributions benefits related to the total earnings for the month.

4. Add the six highest monthly salary credits to get the total monthly salary credit.
5. Divide the total monthly salary credit by 180 days to get the average daily salary credit. This is equivalent to the daily maternity allowance.
6. Multiply the daily maternity allowance by 60 (for normal delivery or miscarriage) or 78 days (for caesarean section delivery) to get the total amount of maternity benefit.
For example, let us say that an SSS member gives birth in December 2004.
1. The semester of contingency would be from July 2004 to December 2004
2. The 12-month period before the semester of contingency would be from July 2003 to June 2004
3. Let us assume that the six highest monthly salary credits are P15,000 each. Thus, the total monthly salary credit would be P90,000 (P15, 000 x 6).
4. The daily maternity allowance would be P500 (P90,000/180).
5. The total maternity benefit due would be P30, 000 (P500 x 60 days) for normal delivery or P39,000 (P500 x 78) for caesarian cases.
Is it necessary to notify the SSS of a member's pregnancy?
Yes. As soon as a member becomes pregnant, she must immediately notify her employer (if employed) or the SSS (if separated/voluntary/self-employed) of such pregnancy and the probable date of her childbirth at least 60 days from the date of conception by accomplishing SSS FORM MAT-1 (Maternity Notification Form) and by submitting proof of pregnancy.
The employer must, in turn, notify the SSS through the submission of the maternity notification form and proof of pregnancy immediately after the receipt of the notification from the employee member.
Failure to observe the rule on notification may result to the denial of the maternity claim.
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.
If the employee member gives birth or suffers miscarriage without the required contributions having been remitted by the employer, or the employer fails to notify the SSS, the employer will be required to pay to the SSS damages equivalent to the benefits the employee would otherwise have been entitled to.
For separated/voluntary/self-employed members - the amount of benefit is paid directly to them by the SSS.
What are the forms and documents needed in filing for maternity benefit?
For employed members:
1. SSS Form MAT-1 (Maternity Notification) duly stamped and received by SSS;
2. SSS Form MAT-2 (Maternity Reimbursement);
3. Other documents:
* Normal delivery - certified true or authenticated copy of duly registered birth certificate. In case the child dies or is a stillborn, duly registered death or fetal death certificate.

* SSS digitized ID or E-6 acknowledgement stub with two valid IDs, one of which with recent photo.
* To ensure receipt of benefits by members authorized company representatives who file maternity benefit claim shall present the members SSS digitized ID or E-6 acknowledgement stub with two valid IDs (at least one with photo). This requirement is in addition to the presentation by the company representative’s own SSS digitized ID and blue-card.
For separated members:
1. Items 1a to 1c of required documents for employed members.
2. Certification from last employer showing the effective date of separation from employment or notice of company’s closure/strike or certification from the Department of Labor and Employment that the employee or employer has a pending labor case.

For self-employed/voluntary members:

Where must the member file her application?
1. For employed and separated members - applications may be filed at the SSS branch where the employer and employee records are based.
2. For voluntary/self-employed members - application forms may be filed at any SSS branch nearest the members residence or where her record is based.
