SSS further extends the deadline of contribution payments until June 30

The Social Security System (SSS) announced that it is once again extending the deadline for the payment of monthly contributions of its members and employers until June 30.

SSS President and Chief Executive Officer Aurora C. Ignacio said that self-employed, voluntary, and non-working spouse members could pay their SSS contributions for the applicable months of January, February, and March, or the first quarter of 2020 until June 30. “For regular employers, they have until June 30 to pay for their employee’s contributions from February to April. On the other hand, household employers can pay the contributions of their kasambahay for the applicable months of January, February, and March until June 30,” Ignacio said.

Ignacio explained that regular and household employers could settle all unpaid contributions for the said period without incurring any penalties if their business or home address was placed under community quarantine.

Employers with approved installment proposals under the Contribution Penalty Condonation Program must deposit their post-dated checks due in February, March, April, and May on June 30.

Ignacio added that contributions paid retroactively by self-employed, voluntary, and non-working spouse members will not be used as eligibility for any benefit claim if the payment date falls within or after the semester of contingency.

“We extended the payment deadline for SSS contributions to give our members and employers ample time to settle their obligations. It is one of our ways to help them in this difficult time brought by the current pandemic,” Ignacio said.

Ignacio also reminded employers that the payment deadline for the applicable months after April should again follow the regular payment schedule. For self-employed, voluntary, and non-working spouse members, the payment deadline for the applicable months after April or quarters after March shall follow the regular payment schedule.
