Do you have unpaid, existing SSS loans? Galing ka ba sa lugar na nasalanta ng kalamidad? If you do, apply now for the SSS Loan Restructuring Program (LRP).
This 2016 to 2017 SSS LRP program gives delinquent member-borrowers a chance to regain their good standing with SSS, so that they can enjoy SSS benefits and privileges in the future. For example, borrowers can renew their SSS loan six months after they have fully paid their overdue principal and interest under the LRP.
UPDATE March 25, 2018: There is a SSS Loan Restructuring Program for 2018. This is a re-implementation of the LRP last 2016. For those waiting for extension of the loan condonation program, THIS IS YOUR CHANCE!!!
If you don’t pay your overdue SSS loan, when you retire your retirement benefit will be greatly reduced because the original amount you loan would have ballooned to tens of thousands. Plus, in case of permanent disability or death, the benefit will be reduced if you have any outstanding loan.
An example demo given by SSS is this:
A P5,000 loan made in 1990 today now amounts to P70,000 to P80,000 because of the interest and penalty fees levied on the loan.
If this is the same case as yours, your retirement benefit will be so small! Avoid this possibility, apply now for loan condonation in SSS if you qualify.
You have the option to pay for your restructured loan in installment or in full, depending on your capacity and preference.
