SSS Safety Net

An important aspect of the SSS is its mandatory membership for all overseas Filipino workers (OFWs) working at sea and on land under the age of 60. This requirement is intended to recognize the significant contributions OFWs make to the Philippine economy and to ensure that they receive social security benefits despite working overseas.

The benefits provided by the SSS are designed to be proportional to each member’s contributions, meaning that the amount of benefits paid in applicable circumstances is directly related to the amount and number of contributions a member has made over time.

However, to ensure a basic level of support for all members, SSS has set the minimum monthly payment at 8,000 pesos (about $136).
