SSS RETIREMENT REQUIREMENTS – Here is a list of the documents needed in applying for the Social Security System’s Retirement Benefit.

Members of the Social Security System or SSS, a social insurance institution in the Philippines, are entitled to a lot of SSS member benefits. One of them is the SSS Retirement Benefit for members who have reached 60 years old and with an active account.

Under the SSS Retirement Benefit, there are two offers – an SSS monthly pension and a lump sum. The former is open for retired members who have reached 120 monthly contributions.

With regards to the SSS lump sum, it is a one-time payment for retired members who have not reached 120 monthly contributions. It is equivalent to the total contribution of the member, his or her employer, and the interest.
