SSS Maternity Benefit: How Much Solo Mothers May Receive

SSS Maternity Benefit Amount for Solo Mothers

SSS MATERNITY BENEFIT – Here is a guide on how much solo mothers may receive under this Social Security System (SSS) benefit offer.

The Social Security System (SSS), one of the biggest social insurance institutions in the Philippines, has a lot of offers for its members. Most of the people who have membership under this state-run social insurance institution are those who are working in the private sector.

Some of the members of SSS are self-employed individuals while others are voluntary members. The social insurance institution allows those who are SSS members to continue their membership even if they are now working in the government.

With regards to the benefits offered by the Social Security System, one of these is the SSS Maternity Benefit for women who had to leave work for childbirth or due to miscarriage or emergency termination of the pregnancy.

SSS Maternity Benefit

Under the said SSS benefit offer, a pregnant woman who is unable to work because of childbirth or miscarriage or emergency termination of the pregnancy will receive a daily cash allowance. She must have notified the social insurance institution about her pregnancy through her employer.

The SSS has set different amounts under the said benefit offer as the grant is on a case-to-case basis. Under the said offer, a solo parent gets a higher amount because of the Republic Act 8972 or the Solo Parents’ Welfare Act of 2000.

If you are a solo mother, your SSS Maternity Benefit is equivalent to your Average Daily Salary Credit (ADSC) multiplied by 120 days. If your ADSC is P600.00, your maternity benefit is P72,000.00.
