IF YOU’RE an overseas Filipino worker (OFW), self-employed, or voluntary member, there is now an easy, fast, and secure way for you to pay or remit your Social Security System (SSS) contributions online. That is through your PayMaya smartphone app.
Recently, the state-run pension fund inked partnership with PayMaya as part of the government initiatives to ease doing business with the private sector and streamline services, hence allowing more avenues for online transactions.
PayMaya (a subsidiary brand of PLDT and Smart Communications and regulated by the Central Bank of the Philippines) is a free smartphone app available on iOS and Android that provides a prepaid virtual Visa or MasterCard and can be used to make online payment at almost the same convenience that a regular credit card offers.

 Log In to Your Social Security System (SSS) Account. You can do it via your SSS Mobile (downloadable app via Google Play or Apple App Store). Use your existing My.SSS account login credentials (user ID and password).
 Generate Your Payment Reference Number (PRN). After your successful account login, click on the Generate PRN/SOA icon and generate your payment reference number.
 Manage Your Transaction Details. Select your membership type, applicable period, and monthly contribution amount. For OFWs, you also have the option to add funds to your FlexiFund. Click Submit to continue.
 Review All Data Selected and Encoded. A pop-up window will appear. Make sure these are all accurate based on your existing SSS account records. Click Ok to continue.
 Initiate Your Payment. If everything is set, click on the Pay button. Select Pay with PayMaya Account from among the available options. Your PayMaya mobile number must be associated or the same as what has been enrolled in your SSS Mobile. Take note that a convenience fee amounting to PHP10 will be charged. Click Ok afterwards.
 Now, Log In to Your PayMaya Account. You will receive an OTP (One-Time Password). Encode it as instructed. Click Proceed.
 Verify Your Transaction Details as Displayed. Your payment transaction details will be displayed once more. Proceed with your actual SSS contributions payment. Click on Confirm Payment.
 Wait for the Confirmation. Once your payment has been processed, a pop-up window will appear confirming that the transaction is complete and successful. Accordingly, payments using PRNs will be posted immediately. You may check your payment on your SSS Mobile or web account.
