Tatay just turned 60 last January 2018. And dahil 60 na sya, I am happy that finally graduate na ako paying for his monthly SSS contribution. And that finally he will be one of its pensioners na.
February 2018, I called SSS hotline to inquire about what are the documents needed.
These are but not limited to:
- SSS pension application which can be downloaded from SSS website
- SSS ID of applicant
- Bank account
- Applicant’s PSA copy of birth certificate
- Dependent’s PSA copy of birth certificate
- Marriage contract if the dependent isn’t registered yet as a dependent
I made them ready beforehand and brought them home in Tiaong para nga ma process na.
Mid March, inay and tatay, accompanied by my cousin went to SSS to file the application. Everything seemed okay, until they realized why there’s huge contributions starting 2014 eh 56 na daw si Tatay that time.
Yes, those were big because I decided to pay for the maximum para naman malaki laki mapepension ng Tatay ko. But this seems to be a big problem. They were given a stub and told to return after a month, Tatay’s record will be verified and adjusted.
With the initial assessment, Tatay’s pension was Php5K+ a month. Hopefully this is still the amount he will receive. Pera nya yun and when I checked online, ganun din nag aappear na benefit nya.
After a month, they went back to SSS. They were asking for the payment return starting 2014. Fortunately they were with me, kulang kulang nga lang. I don’t know why maybe I threw them unknowingly. So I LBC’d the returns kasi nasa Pampanga ako.
Then they went back again bringing the copies. Again, not okay yet. They were asked to photocopy the returns. They were asked to notarized a declaration of income kasi daw ako ang nakapirma sa mga payment contributions. Duh! This is duh!
So again, they were asked to go back after photocopying the returns and have the income declaration notarized.
They went back to SSS San Pablo on May 3. Submitted the necessary documents. Inay told me that okay na daw and it’s now nasa taas for processing, alam nyo na yun kung ano. They were advised to come back after three weeks.
Sana lang talaga the same amount will be given to Tatay. Dahil it is his benefit. And I really made sure that they will have this amount para makatulong ng malaki sa kanila.
Thank you Ate Ria for assisting inay and tatay. Thank you for your big help! Mwah!
will keep everyone posted!
