SSS RETIREMENT BENEFIT – Here is a list of what a retired Social Security System (SSS) member may receive aside from the monthly pension.
In the Philippines, the institution that takes charge of the insurance of the people working in private companies and sectors is the Social Security System. More commonly known as SSS, it is also open for the insurance of self-employed individuals.
A member must pay for the SSS monthly contribution to avail the SSS member benefits and services which can greatly help most especially in the face of emergencies. Also, there is a long-term benefit – the SSS pension.
The monthly pension is under the SSS Retirement Benefit. A retired member of the social insurance institution may avail it if he or she has reached at least 120 total monthly contributions.
In case the retired member has not reached the set limit for the monthly pension, he or she may receive a lump sum amount.
Aside from the monthly pension or lump sum amount, the retirees would also receive other benefits and assistance under the SSS Retirement Benefit.
