State-run Social Security System (SSS) recently partnered with PayMaya to allow members to pay their contributions via the SSS Mobile App.

Thanks to this partnership, individual members of the pension fund such as Self-Employed, Voluntary, and Overseas Filipino Workers (OFW) can now pay their contributions using their PayMaya account or any Visa, Mastercard, or JCB credit, debit or prepaid card. In the next phase, PayMaya will then accept employer’s contributions (regular and household) along with Salary Loan payments.

SSS members who intend to use their PayMaya accounts should download the SSS Mobile App from the Google Play Store, Apple App Store, or from the Huawei AppGallery.

They can login using their existing My.SSS account’s user ID and password and generate their Payment Reference Number or Statement of Account in the SSS Mobile App by tapping the “Generate PRN/SOA” button. After generation the PRN, they need to tap the Pay button and select either “Pay with PayMaya Account” or “Credit/Debit Card.”

If the member opts to pay using PayMaya, he will have to enter his email and password. PayMaya will then send a Onte-Time Password (OTP) to proceed with the payment.

Upon completion of payment, a pop-up message will display the PRN, amount, convenience fee and payment reference number.

“This is only the beginning of our continuous effort to provide quality and convenient services to our members. Hopefully, we can soon use PayMaya for loan repayments and payments from employers not only in the SSS Mobile App but also even on the SSS website.” 

– Aurora C. Ignacio, SSS President and Chief Executive Officer

The Social Security Commission (SSC) approved the accreditation of PayMaya, after it had submitted and passed the standards and requirements of the RTPC system.

SSS members may also pay their contributions via online transactions offered by partner-banks and other collection partners. For the official list of online payment channels, members may visit the SSS website.
