SSS now requires members to use Payment Reference Number or PRN when making contribution payment to the Social Security System. There are 5 ways on how you can request and get your SSS PRN.
*This rule on getting PRN before paying contribution in SSS became mandatory starting January 16, 2018.
PRN allows the member to get instant confirmation and posting of premium contributions after payment.
How to Request and Get SSS PRN?
You need a PRN to pay contribution in SSS.
SSS will send the PRN number to your registered email address and mobile number when it is time to make contribution payment. Now, what if you got your PRN but accidentally deleted the info in your email or cellphone. How can you get your PRN again?
There are 5 ways to request for the Payment Reference Number, and they are as follows:
- You can login to your My. SSS account in the SSS website. Make sure to register in SSS online portal for members to access the platform.
- You can email the customer service at PRNHelpLine@sss.gov.ph or firstname.lastname@example.org using the email address that is already registered in your records with SSS.
- You may call the SSS Call Center (02) 920 6446 and (02) 917-7777. The customer service officer will ask you some information to verify your identity like your SSS number or your employment history, etc. Once your identity is established, you will be given your PRN.
- You may visit an SSS branch, then go to the SSS Tellering Counters to ask for your Payment Reference Number (PRN). You may also inquire for PRN in accredited Payment Channels (bank and non-bank).
- You may also go to an SSS branch and go straight to the E Center to get your PRN. There is a machine there that you can use to get your PRN.
Step by Step Procedure in Paying SSS Contribution
This is the step by step procedure in paying your premium contributions in the Social Security System.
Step 1: Secure your PRN using any of the 5 methods discussed earlier.
*Members cannot pay contribution without PRN beginning this 2018.
Step 2. Present the PRN when paying your SSS contributions.
Step 3: View your SSS contribution INSTANTLY after payment.
*This is a good thing so that you can be 100% sure that your contribution payment was accepted and posted by SSS right away.
This new SSS PRN system is put in place to Enhanced Contributions Collection. Because of the electronic Collection System (e-CS), SSS members can right away verify that their contribution has been posted to their account instantly, right after paying! Plus, this new system allows for faster and more accurate processing of member’s benefit claims and loan proceeds.
VERY IMPORTANT: Register to My.SSS
SSS now requires members to REGISTER at My.SSS at the official SSS website sss.gov.ph. Make sure to remember your username and password, as well as the email and mobile number that you registered online.
*iSensey recommends that you use Internet Explorer to access the SSS website.
Just before your contribution due date arrives, you will get an email notification in your registered email reminding you about the upcoming due. You will also get a txt message in your registered phone about the upcoming due date of contribution and your SSS PRN number.
If you want to get the latest information from SSS, make sure to update your details in My.SSS online access. Registering with SSS online is very useful because you can view your Statement of Account (SOA), you may also change your payment period or contribution amount, and of course, get a PRN.
