You need the SSS ID of employer to successfully enroll for an online SSS access. But therein lies the challenge because the SSS employer ID number is not published online for security reasons. You can’t also find this listed in the website of SSS.
But this shouldn’t stop you from registering your SSS account online, because there are other ways to get your employer’s SSS ID.
Here is how to find employer SSS ID number so you can finally register online:
- Call or visit your Human Resource Department or HR to ask for your employer’s SSS ID. If ask what for, just inform them that it is so that you can register for SSS online access. A good HR will not refuse you this information.
- Call SSS hotline number to ask for your employer’s SSS ID. These are the Call Center Hotline numbers: (02) 920-6446 to 55; IVRS: (02) 917-7777.
This is what we did with one of iSensey’s writers. He stopped working for a couple of years and currently doesn’t have any employer, but he wants to register online to check how many monthly contributions is under his SSS account. So he called up SSS hotline number and was able to talk to a CSR.
The SSS CSR asked him several questions to established his identity, that he is who he claims he is. Among the questions asked were mother’s maiden name, birth date, previous employers, employment history, what year he started and resign from his last company, etc.
Once the CSR fully verified his identity, the CSR gave him the SSS Employer ID of his last employer, and advised him to try that in registering an account for SSS online. Furthermore, the SSS personnel on the phone advised him that if he is back working on a freelance status or doing business, he should apply for voluntary/self-employed so he can continue his SSS membership and be able to enjoy the numerous benefits offered by SSS to each members.
Armed with the employer SSS ID number, he successfully registered for an SSS online account.
