SSS Maternity Notification and Benefits

NOTE: Hi guys! I’m not from SSS. I’d love to help you answer your questions, but may not be the most qualified to do so. At the end of this post are links to articles you may refer to for additional knowledge. For more immediate clarifications, it’s best to contact your HR department or SSS directly. Check out these two links from SSS: Part 1 and Part 2.

SSS Maternity Notification
SSS Maternity Notification Form
Our HR department provided this form for me. You can also download it from the Gov.Ph website (Maternity Notification Form).

Submit the accomplished form with your Ultrasound Report at least 60 days from conception to your employer, if employed, or to SSS, if unemployed, voluntary or separated. If you’re employed, your employer will submit the form to SSS no later than 15 days after they get it from you. The instructions are on the back of the form. πŸ˜‰

NOTE: It doesn’t say so on the form, but I also needed to show my original SSS digitized ID and a photocopy. Have that handy.

SSS Maternity Benefits

Know your SSS Benefits

If you’re a paying SSS member, you have a right to avail of the maternity benefit. More specifically, you have to have paid at least 3 monthly contributions within the 12-month period right before you give birth or have a miscarriage. You also need to have filed the maternity notification form. The maternity allowance is equal to 100% of the member’s daily salary times 60 for normal delivery or miscarriage, 78 for caesarean.

For specifics on how the maternity benefit is computed, check out the Maternity Benefits FAQ on the Gov.ph website (Maternity Benefit FAQ)

Employer Maternity Policies and Benefits

Do ask your employer about policies and benefits. Some employers require a medical certificate. Talk to your boss about your situation. And if your company is new-Mom-friendly, good for you! I once worked for a company that allowed new Moms to go home at 4.30 pm – much earlier than the usual time-out hour. Check out what benefits your employer offers.

I have more questions…
Now how do you go about claiming your maternity reimbursements? How does one file maternity leave at work? I’ll share my personal experience with you when THE day is nearing! Meanwhile, you can check the helpful links below for more details.

    Hi Toni. It would also be good to have the Philhealth requirements ready on the month of your expected delivery. With the excitement of the big day, these things might be missed. So include it in the bag of
    things you’re bringing to the hospital. Hope the pregnancy is going well!

    Thank you for the tip Giselle! I’ll prepare another entry on Philhealth requirements when I’ve gotten my stuff together. πŸ˜€ Many thanks!

          same issue as mine. I did file maternity benefit on my previous company but it was denied. originally may expected date should be may 11 2015 so our HR said it was not qualified because of the 6 months contribution. so that is the reason of denial . turns out that I delivered my son on June 11 2015.

          can I still file for my benefit?

          This is the answer i’m looking for. I’m also not sure if to too na 10 years. I got separated from my Company April 2016 i gave birth August 2016. I was able to submit my SS notification but since i moved in Canada, hindi ko pa nasusubmit ang claim form. Do SSS require the Certified True Copy of Birth Certificate or Do they acknowledge the photocopy of the Certified True Copy with stamp ng Philippine Embassy ditto sa Canada?

        Hi Mommies,
        My name is Rhen, 28. I’m a single mom. I had cryptic pregnancy kaya I was not able to file MAT-1 sa SSS. I found out that I was pregnant a week before I gave birth, and that was a month after I resigned. Am I still eligible sa Maternity Reimbursement? Someone told me kase that SSS might deny my application kase wala ako na submit na notification. Is there a way na maka kuha parin ako ng maternity benefit? I need the money for my kid we are suspecting that he has inguinal hernia and I am currently unemployed yung sa SSS Lang ang inaasahan ko for my son’s check up. Hoping for your response. Thank you and God bless!

      Hi Toni, I gave birth to 3 kids now aging 9, 8 and 4. I wanna ask if I can still get my maternity benefits though they are on these age? I wasn’t able to get any of it eversince I gave birth. I have been working since I’m 16. And still working as a call center agent. My colleagues just advised me of this benefit. I honestly don’t know anything about this and other loans that I may take advantage of. No Pag-Ibig loans or SSS loans at all… Looking forward for a response. I really wanna know so that I can file it, if I can still do so. :)

    Toni, Philhealth nowadays require Membership Data Record, so you must get that file before you admit yourself to the hospital come delivery time.

    Correct! I’ve requested for a copy from our HR already. Even though delivery is months away, at least that’s one requirement down already.

    I’ve never claimed any maternity benefit from SSS yet but here’s what I know…In the past, the SSS benefit is 2 months salary or maximum P30,000 (for normal delivery – 3 months for CS but I’m not sure how much is the maximum). I am also not sure if the maximum P30,000 is for those who have maximum contribution. Depending on you employer, SSS benefit is usually not on top of your salary thing! Most employer just pay the difference between the P30,000 and your total of your two-months salary. Daya no? But check with your company and you may be the lucky few who gets their SSS benefit on top of their salary.

    Now, to simplify the process it is the ususal practice for the employer to just continue paying your salary while you are on maternity leave and they will take care of the SSS reimbursement so as not to hassle you.

    I’ve been away from the country for 5 years already so I don’t know if things have changed but the last time I talked to the SSS rep here, the maximum benefit is still P30,000 for normal delivery. Hope this helps.

    Thanks! Will double-check SSS reimbursement benefits vs. salary with employers.

    And I have heard that some employers continue paying an employee’s salary and take care of SSS reimbursement on their own. It varies from employer to employer though!

    This is really helpful. Thanks a lot Nina!

    As already mentioned above, a lot of companies just continue to pay you your 2 months’ (or 2.5 months for CS) salary while you’re on maternity leave and then they just claim the reimbursement (P30,000 max) from SSS themselves. If that’s the case with your company, then you don’t need to do anything. Yung company mo na ang kakausap sa SSS.

    Some companies are more generous, though. They give you the 2 months’ salary from their own pocket, and then allow you to keep the SSS reimbursement (maximum of P30,000) for yourself. In which case, you’ll need to make the claim of the extra P20,000 yourself.

    ====

    By the way, don’t forget: your newborn baby is also entitled to Philhealth benefits!! This is important, because a lot of moms don’t know this and they only claim their own Philhealth and forget to claim Philhealth for their babies. If your baby is perfectly healthy, mga P1500 lang ang pwede niyang iclaim, but if your baby has complications Philhealth will pay for more than that.

    Also … bear in mind that when you leave the hospital after giving birth you’ll be paying for 2 hospital bills: yours and your baby’s. So don’t just save up for your bill, also set some money aside for baby’s! Yes, when you go in, isa ka lang, pero pag labas mo, dalawa na kayo. :)

    THIS IS SUPER AWESOME ROWIE! Thank you. I’m waiting for our HR right now, and I’m looking forward to clarifying some things with her. My old company used to shoulder the 2 months salary and settle SSS themselves, so I want to know if the same applies here in this new company too.

    I have a question about Philhealth for the baby — is any paperwork needed for the wee little one? Or is that part of the Maternity Care Package forms that Philhealth has already?

    2 hospital bills! That’s right. Thanks for that reminder.

    wow..that is awesome that you are getting compensation! despite it being a super-power, the U.S. is still behind on family benefits! we get time off, but we don’t get paid!

    by the way, here’s a tip to maximize your “normal” clothing (as opposed to switching to maternity clothes right awa): get a belly band! i’m pretty sure they have a version available over there.
    i used mine (and my normal clothes) up until i was 6 months pregnant!

I haven’t bought any maternity clothes yet. Will just do that when I’m really running out of clothes. Gotta save save save!

    Hi toni. As a government employee, I filled my maternity leave one month before my due date and accomplished a clearance form immediately after the leave was approved.

    About the reimbursements, I was not able to avail of that. I stop my SSS contribution as I start working in the government because we are required to pay and be a member of the GSIS. Though I still want to continue paying my SSS contribution it is very hard for me to pay GSIS & SSS at the same time while I am also required to pay on my Pag-ibig and Philhealth contributions.

    Just a piece of advice, I got from my friend about the philhealth claims. Apply for reimbursement directly to the philhealth office rather than let the hospital deduct it from your hospital bill. Mas malaki daw ang marereimburse mo kapag diretso kang nag-apply sa philhealth samantalang konti lang ang binabawas ng hospital sa bill kapag sila pa mag fill ng claim sa philhealth.

    Toni: as far as I know the paperwork for baby’s Philhealth is separate. Actually what happened with Rafa as that the Philhealth woman in the hospital who brought me the Philhealth papers didn’t know that babies are supposed to get Philhealth benefits too. But I was pretty certain about it so when I got home from the hospital I called Philhealth and the Philhealth office gave me the list of requirements that I needed to submit to be able to get a Philhealth reimbursement. The reimbursement check arrived around 2 months later.

    Hi Ms. Toni! With regards to SSS maternity benefit, 30, 000.00 is the max. benefit for normal delivery and 39, 000.00 for CS delivery (provided that your contribution is also the max. (which is 1,590 a month including ER share).. Some companies give the computed amount before a mom-to-be take her ML (ask your HR re: your policy)

    With regards to Philhealth benefit, it would be more convenient if you will fill-up/prepare the ff before you give birth:
    claim for your delivery
    * Clam form 1 (HR will provide certification)
    * photocopy of your current MDR

    right after you give birth, prepare the ff: (ask someone to do it for you) this is for the claim for your baby
    * Clam form 1 (HR will provide certification)
    * fill up M2, attach birthcert of your baby, ask for an ER2 from HR and submit (M2 with ER2) to the nearest Philhealth office so you may be able to get MDR indicating the name of your baby as your qualified dependent.

    philhealth benefit is up to 30% of the total bill.

    This is SUPER helpful. Thank you Renin!

    I think it’d be best if you go to your nearest SSS to get the correct information. I tried searching for answers on the net for you, but am unsure of its accuracy. You may want to check out this thread for some information. But I’d still advise you to give your nearest SSS a visit. :)

    At the back of maternity notification [MAT!] it says that it should be submitted together with the maternity reimbursement [MAT-2] 60 days after conception. What should I indicate on the MAT-2 regarding the type of delivery (normal, CS, miscarriage) if I am still on my 2nd month?

    I don’t think you give the MAT-2 till AFTER you give birth.

    Hi, Good evening! i just want to ask you regarding my problem with SSS reimbursement! I gave birth sept 2009, i filed for the notification july 2009 and after that my company gave me 15,000 in advance.. I filed for the reimbursement dec2009. Now, they told me that according to SSS i am not qualified for the maternity reimbursement since i lack 3 months of contribution from april2008-march2009… I am puzzled how they came up with that months of contingency (i think?!).. And worst, my company is asking me to return the 15,000 they gave me in advance or they will deduct it from my salary… Do i have the right to refuse from deducting the 15,000 from my salary since it is not my fault anyway? They should have verified first from SSS if i am qualified or not, right?,, well, i hope you can help me out with this one, thanks in advance!

    Uh oh, but is it factual that you missed out on SSS contributions? Because if you did your company could take back the 15h they loaned you.

    Hi, I have a friend who works in a company and she has filed her Mat-1, given birth etc. She’s asking though that since she’s on maternity leave, does the employer stop paying SSS contributions? Or does she have to file payments herself during her maternity leave?

    Thanks!

    Hi all. I am a new mommy,just gave birth to a baby girl last august. I filed for maternity notification, 2 weeks b4 my due and my company was able to submit it to sss branch they are part of,i also file maternity leave for 1 month a week b4 my delivery date. after gave birth I decided to resign to focus on my baby,so when i process my clearance my company helped me process my sss mat reimbursement,since i am a separated member my company will not able to reimburse the amount by the company but they did provide all the requirements i need for me to submit it to the sss office for reimbrsement. The computation will be based on your 6 highest salary within the 12 months preceding your contingency or delivery date,so if your highest salary within the 12 mos is 12000 multiply it by 6 divide it to 180 then multiply by 60 (nrmal) or 78 (cs) that should be the amount that you will get from sss. Cheque will be recieve depending on the advice of the sss representative. hope this will help:)

    Maternity benefit depends on the company you work for. There are generous employer that provide maternity benefit aside from the sss maternity benefit that you will get. So it is best for you to ask your HR regarding the benefits your entitled to. Some companies can reimbrse the sss mat benefit for you in advance and then they are the one who will ask sss to pay them the amount that they reimburse for you,just like insurance rules:) Hope this will clear some of your questions:)

    gud day! i was submit all the rquirements to the sss nearest branch…i am employed but my employer did not advance my maternty benefits. they told me to wait the check from sss and give to me. But it is almost two months of waiting the checques. until now im still waiting. How many days will the sss give the cheque to my employer so that i will also claim my maternity benefits?

    I think it’d be best for you to follow up your employer. You’re entitled to that benefit so make sure you get it!

    Hi! It’s good to see this informative site. :) I’m also an expecting mother (for my 2nd child). I resigned from work last year and failed to continue paying for my SSS contributions. But when I learned that I’m pregnant pala last Feb 2011, I went to SSS office to inquire if I can still continue to pay for my contributions and at the same time, be eligible to avail of the maternity benefit. Pwede ko pa raw naman habulin if I pay for Jan-June 2011 since I’m due on October pa. I already paid for Jan-Mar and will pay for Apr-June by July (quarterly payment). I paid for the maximum contribution as voluntary member kase I want to get the maximum benefit sana. But is it true that if there is a salary loan, ideduct ba nila un sa maternity benefit na makukuha ko? May loan po kase ako when I was still employed and I was not able to pay for it na after my resignation. I hope someone can provide me an answer if the loan amount will be deducted from my maternity benefit or not. Thanks!

I paid SSS monthly contribution for 34 months from year 1999 to 2002. Is it possible for me to claim for maternity benefit? Furthermore, I will be delivering my baby here in Bahrain.

    How many contributions should I need to have mat-1 for SSS?

    I had miscarriage September 2009. I filed mat-1 on October 2009, my expected delivery date was March 2010. I have worked for the company for 5 months then which means I only have 5 months contributions. They gave me the the half of my benefit. I was not able to file mat-2 since I was not aware that I still need to file for it.

    Last April 2010, they told me to comply my mat-2. I waited for it for almost 2 months now. Then they told me that I am not eligible for mat-1 and mat-2 since I had insufficient SSS contributions during the required period. Now, they told me that they will deduct the amount of my mat-1 to my salary. they told me that my miscarriage date does not suffice the 12mos. period prior to the semester of contingency.

    I really need some help here. Can you tell me if I should get mat-1 and mat-2 with 5 months contributions when I had my miscarriage?

    Hi po. I gave birth last october 11 and true enough my company advanced my maternity benefits of 30K (CS po ako). I’m still waiting for my daughter’s birth cert to give to my employer so that they can process the reimbursement from SSS. I am due to come back to work this December, but unfortunately I believe I cannot continue to work and was hoping to focus on my child before I go back to the workforce. Can i resign even after i have received the advanced maternity benefits provided I will comply with the requirements for the company to reimburse it from SSS? Or should they ask me to pay the 30K before I resign, and I shouldered 30K personally, can I personally continue to process the reimbursement from SSS so that I can still attain my maternity benefits? I do hope for your immediate response.

    Hi,

    This is very informative! Thanks a lot! πŸ˜€
    I would like to know if I should pay for it after?
    I am a voluntary SSS member & I applied for an emergency loan last September. Currently, I am paying for my loan & monthly contribution.
    If I avail of this benefit, will I have to pay for it monthly too? Because if that’s the case, I would have to pay for three already and it would be too much from my end. I will be giving birth with my 1st baby in 1-2wks from now πŸ˜€ This can really help a lot πŸ˜€

    Also, what do I need to present to SSS office should I go there this week?

    Hoping for your soonest response.

    One of the many advantages to exploring careers in various employment placement agencies is that you will find that it normally does not take a four year degree to acquire employment. Normally, in order to acquire a position of employment placement agency in, you will simply be required to submit proof that you have graduated from an accredited high school. However, it is important to know and understand that many administrative or specialized positions within the agency may require you to submit proof that you have Obtained a higher form of education.

    hello, good fay!. I am four months pregnant now but has no yet informed my employe about my pregnancy. I am already 3 months plus when I knew about my pregnancy, it is because, from the previous moths/years, I had always a unregular menstrual period that takes 1-2 months of missed period. At first, i think that it was just a missed period, due to my non regular menstrual periods, and i will have back my preiod the next month, but since I didnt have the following month I decided to undergo a home pregnancy test, and discovered that I am pregnant. Would it be too late for me to inform my employer regarding this, and be able to avail the maternity benefits? As stated on the rule, one must informed the employer :for at least 60 days from conception” and I am 4 months now. Please do answer my querry. I badly need your opinion.. Thank you so much.

    Hi Ms.Toni, hope you can help me. Can I still avail my SSS maternity Benefits for my five (5) years old son. Since I was employed on my previous company last 2009, I was unable to have thier CERTIFICATE OF EMPLOYMENT as one of requirements for claiming my benefits because I got AWOL from their company. I have no certificates from them and maybe because I was employed less than 1 month.But I was employed after 7 months of my delivery from June 2010- May 2011 and another company for 2012 up to 2014,and now Im currently working. What should I have to do to continue pursuing my Maternity benefits for my son??

    I really hoping for your quick response!!

    Thank you so much.

    I discontinued my SSS contributions since I left my job 5 years ago.
    My employed husband has declared me as a dependent under his SSS #.
    Can i also claim for SSS maternity benefit?
    His company continuously pays his monthly contributions.
    Do I also get the same maternity benefits?

    Hello,

    I hope you can help me,
    I didn’t able to give MAT-1 Notification to SSS by my employer because I didn’t know I have to. But my immediate superior knew that i was pregnant after i have the first ultrasound. But they didn’t able to gave the information to our HR. Also I wasn’t able to do it myself because i was advised to have some days of leave due to my bleeding. Then after 2 weeks i got a miscarriage. Now I did gave my employer all documents needed, Mat-1 & Mat-2, and explanation letter why I didn’t able to send Mat-1 right away. With late Mat-1, does my application can still be approved? can i still claim my maternity benefits?

    I would be grateful for your help.

    Thank you!

    HI. I miscarried my 3rd baby, and when I gave birth to my 4th daughter, I stated on MAT-1 that she is my 3rd baby cause I don’t know that my miscarried baby was included on the list. Later did I know that my miscarried baby is included. When I filed MAT-2, I stated there that my daughter is my 4th child. Now when I’m trying to avail my maternity claim I can’t cause the details were mismatched. What should I do? If I’m going to make a letter, what should it state?

    I had miscarriage last july, then was on maternity leave for 2 months. Then after a month, I receive the amount of my 2 months salary. akala ko yun ung bigay ng SSS na maternity benefit, then ung next pay ko wala akong natanggap na sahod. turns out, my employer gave the money in advance. tapos ang status ng claim ko is ‘waiting for reimbursement. ibig sabihin ba nun wala na kong ibang pera na makukuha sa sss? ung maternity claim po ba is un na mismong bayad nila sa maternity leave? akala ko pa naman may extra pa yun :(

    I gave birth to my first child in 2011. I was able to claim my maternity benefit just 2 days ago. I didn’t have mat-1. They just asked me to fill out the mat-1 then submit the ff documents: OB History form(They will accept it even if you get it from an OB other than the one who facilitated your delivery, NSO/CTC of Birth certificate, Certificate of separation from employer (if you got separated from your employer before you gave birth), certificate of no maternity benefit advancement (from previous employer), Mat 2, OR room record (if CS), LS501 form from employer (signature card), photo copy of 2 valid IDs.

    Good day to you all of you my name is Christopher Miles, I’m from USA, Texas, am very happy as am writing the testimony how i got my loan from this loan, i believe God has a plan for me, after i was been scammed of my money by many so called loan lenders, i was deceived and almost thought to take my life, but God has a purpose for me, if you want to get a loan from any company you have to chose Mike Johnson Firm, when i was first started with him, thought he was like the rest, and to my Greatest surprise i got the loan of $69,000.00 in my account and that was the Exact amount i applied for in his company, and you that is feeling that there no hope for you? is a lie because if you interested in getting any type of loan, you can contact him via email, his email is: mikejohnsonfirm@yahoo.com, God Bless you like he blessed me with Mr Mike Johnson by getting my loan after been falling in the hands of scams.

    Hi,

    I would like to inquire about your policy when it comes to maternity benefits. My Girlfriend gave birth to our 2nd daughter last July 12, 2016. She was last employed as a call center agent in one of the bpo companies here in Iloilo, is on AWOL status. Last employment month was April, 2016. Will she still need a certificate of contributions from her company? Or will an affidavit of undertaking be suffice?

    Thank you and looking forward to your swift reply.

Sinabihan ko po ang nanay ko na puntahan ang sss office sa Imus para magpatulong kung papaano ito gagawin. Ang sabi po sa desk office no need to notify basta kpag makauwi na po ako sa Pilipinas kailangan ko lang po ng birthcertificate at ultrasound ng bata (kasalukuyang 4 na buwan nang nakakalipas ng manganak ako). Gaano po ito katotoo? Natatakot po ako na baka di ko matanggap amg aking benepisyo ng dahil lamang sa di ko pagnotify sa SSS (I tried many times on their site, but it did not work).

Well, as per sss rules, they require that we have at least 6 contributions prior to being pregnant. Since 2010 ang contribution ko but i was not entitled to any maternity benefits coz i don’t have any contributions before i got pregnant. Sad, but that’s life..hope i was of help to you.

    Hi good day!. I am browsing your blog and I find it helpful for those mothers like me. I have just a few questions.
    Am I still qualified for a Maternity Benefit?. I delivered a child last December 8, 2016. Sadly, I have not filed earlier my MAT 1 and also I was separated from my employer last June 1, 2016. But the good thing is I have a contribution from January – May 2016.

    Hope for your help. Thank you very much

    Anne

    Hi toni.Buntis po ako 27weeks na. Ang due date ko is on May 20,2017. Sseparated po ako sa work last October 10,2016 pero nahulugan naman ng previous employer ko ang sss ko from july to october 2016.. nagvoluntary pay na ako sa SSS ng November at december 2016. Nagfile po ako ng maternity notification form sa SSS office nung December 13, 2016. Tapos nitong february 7 2017 naemploy po ako for fixed contract 6 months (from feb7 to june 6, 2017.tanong ko lang po, need ko pa ba magsubmit ng maternity notification sa current employer ko?

    hello. may I ask lang. kasi my employer doesn’t want to give me the advanced maternity benefit pay due to 1 month suspension kasi di ako nakasal agad (yun lang suspension agad) although employed ako. they want me to process it personally after ko nalang daw manganak pero pwede ba yung employed ka then magpapasa ka ng MAT 2 for reimbursement, how are you going to indicate na di naman binigay in advanced yung maternity pay mo? and maaapproved kaya yung MAT 2 application ko? sino po ba dapat magprocess talaga, ako or yung employer ko since employed and status ko pa din sa kanila? and if ever na may approve yung check po ba is mapapadala sa employer? thanks po. sana masagot nyo po because I am really confused. My employer po kasi overlapped the suspension with my maternity leave, sinasadya po ata nila para di kami mabigyan ng leave pay na due to us.
