With fears of catching the coronavirus making people question the safety of making the trip to a payment center, businesses are transitioning to online settlements. The Social Security System addressed this by offering online settlement options for regular and household employers.
Remittances can be sent through web facilities like Security Bank Corporation-Digibanker, Union Bank of the Philippines–UnionBank Online (regular and household employers), Bank of the Philippine Islands–Bizlink (regular employers), or the following eGov BancNet member banks:
- Asia United Bank (AUB)
- Bank of Commerce (BOC)
- China Bank (CBC)
- CTBC Bank
- Metropolitan Bank and Trust Company (MBTC)
- MUFG Bank
- Philippine Bank of Communications (PBCom)
- Philippine National Bank (PNB)
- Rizal Commercial Banking Corporation (RCBC)
- Robinsons Bank (RBC)
- Standard Chartered Bank(SCB)
- United Coconut Planters Bank (UCPB)
“Over the years, we have established a strong partnership with our various bank collection partners who played a significant role in our contribution collections from our members and employers as well. It is why we tapped the internet banking services offered by our partner banks so they can remit their employees’ monthly contributions at their own convenience,” SSS President and Chief Executive Officer Aurora C. Ignacio said.
Employers can also check employee contribution payments and loan repayments, generate payment reference number, monitor sickness and maternity reimbursement claim status, certify salary loan and retirement, and submit various notifications and forms using their My.SSS accounts.
