Sickness Benefit of the Philippine Security Social System is a premeditated program for active members who are in need of financial assistance.
For self-employed and voluntary members should notify the SSS directly within five calendar days after the start of confinement, unless such confinement is in the hospital, in which case, notification is not necessary. SSS Sickness Benefit will be paid directly by the SSS to the self-employed and voluntary members. Forms needed for SSS Sickness Benefits:
1. SSS Form CLD-9A (Sickness Benefit Claim for Self-employed/Voluntary Members)
2. SSS Form MMD-102 (Medical Certificate)
3. Presentation of the SS Digitized ID/SSS Form E-6 (acknowledgment stub) with 2 valid Ids, one of which with the recent photo.
If you belong to the status of voluntary and self-employed active member, you are advised to process your SSS Sickness Benefits at the SSS Office nearest the place of your residence. To get more information about SSS Sickness Benefit, you can contact the SSS Online Support Team in their official SSS Facebook Fan Page. They are happy and willing to entertain your queries.
