Steps on How To Apply for SSS Salary Loan
SSS SALARY LOAN – Here are some steps on how to apply for a salary loan to the Social Security System.
Through the Republic Act No. 8282 in 1997, the Social Security System or more commonly known as SSS was established. It is an insurance program that is governed by the state.
Most employees who are working in private companies and establishments are insured under the SSS. Some members are also non-working individuals who applied for SSS membership.
If you are a member of the SSS, there are actually a lot of perks and privileges. You will have to pay a low monthly contribution but upon reaching 60 years old with at least 120 monthly contributions, you will be entitled to a monthly pension.
Another benefit offered by the state-run insurance program is the SSS Salary Loan. Members of the program who are qualified for the said loan may borrow money for their personal purposes.
According to SSS, a member who has paid at least 36 monthly contributions with six (6) of it within the last twelve months may be entitled to a one-month loan. For example, if the SSS member is earning Php 15,000.00 a month, he or she can borrow Php 15,000.00 from the social insurance institution.
If a member has 72 monthly contributions with six (6) of it posted in the last 12 months, he or she is entitled to a two-month loan. In this case, the member who is earning Php 15,000.00 a month may borrow Php 30,000.00 from SSS.
The following are the other qualifications to the SSS Salary Loan:
- The employer of the member-borrower must be update in terms of contributions
- The member should have not availed any final benefit like retirement and total permanent disability
- The member who want to borrow money must be younger than 65 years old when he or she applied for SSS membership
- The member-borrower should not have committed fraud against SSS and has been disqualified
