SSS Maternity Reimbursement

Finally, I received my Maternity Reimbursement from SSS! Whoopee.

Before anything else, you should consider your sss contributions. If you are unsure, you can register online through

It is easier if you are enrolled because you can view your total contributions. Plus, you can see immediately if you qualify for a maternity benefit or not and how much you will receive, no computations needed.

The easiest status is being employed because all you need to do is fill out the forms. Then, it should be your HR’s job to process everything else. You should receive half of the amount before your maternity leave/before your delivery date and half of the amount after you give birth.

If you are either a voluntary or a separated member, you should have paid at least 3 monthly contributions within the 12 month period preceding the semester of your delivery.

If you got confused, let me tell you my experience ..

I gave birth November 2011, so my semester of contingency is from June 2011 to November 2011 . I did not have any contributions during those months because I am now a separated member. I resigned May 2011 so my last contribution was April 2011. It doesn’t matter because the important thing is you should have at least 3 months of contribution during the 12 month period before the semester of contingency. In my case, it was June 2010 to May 2011. I had contributions for the whole 12 month period because I was employed from December 2009 to May 2011.

I received P 30, 000 in cheque. Good thing no tax was deducted 🙂

You should pass your maternity notification or MAT 1 together with your pregnancy test or ultrasound report before your date of delivery. SSS says you should pass it within 60 days after your pregnancy. I think they might be lenient about this because I have a friend who passed it weeks before she gave birth but it was still accepted. In my case, I was already 4 months pregnant when I notified SSS.

After you give birth, you should pass your maternity reimbursement application or MAT 2. For normal delivery, you need the birth certificate of your child. Make sure it is the Certified True Copy that is registered to the Local Civil Registrar. I advise you photocopy it for future use  because SSS is going to take the original copy. That was my mistake so I had to go to the office of the Local Civil Registrar and go back to SSS. For Cesarean, include the Operating Room Record. Make sure it is certified by the hospital. Otherwise, SSS won’t accept it. For separated members like me, there are a lot more requirements so it took time before I completed mine because I did not know all about the requirements before. You should include your certificate of employment, your employer’s certification of a Non Advance Payment  of Maternity Benefit with the L501 ( your employer should know ), your OB History signed by your OB ( get the form from SSS), and a photocopy of your SSS ID. If you don’t have one (like me), you can file for your SSS ID and just photocopy the stub they will give you.

After passing all my requirements, I was told to go back after a month. I passed my requirements January 9, 2011. I went back February 10, 2011. SSS informed me that my cheque is already available. They gave me the cheque number. However, I passed my MAT 1 in SSS Diliman Quezon City Branch, but I am now in Davao City and I passed my MAT 2 and all the other requirements here. My cheque will be coming from Manila via post office so they are going to deliver my cheque via Philippine Post Office. And so I waited. Finally, my cheque was delivered February 21, almost 2 weeks after. So I encashed 30,000 pesos without tax through PNB. It will be 39,000 pesos if you underwent Cesarean, but it all depends on how much your salary or monthly contribution is. Again, you can check through SSS website for the computation.

I bought a camera for my baby as a gift 🙂

My advice to all the moms or future moms out there, you should get your maternity benefits because you pay your contributions and you deserve your reimbursement. The money is quite large and it will be a lot of help to you. Some of the money I will use to find a new job.

Good Luck to all the moms out there ! 🙂

      sabi saken ng SSS samen sa dati mong emploer mo makukuha yun. pero kung separated ka sa employer for example dahil nag AWOL ka, pede ka gumawa/kumuha/magpagawa ng affidavit of undertaking. yung affidavit of undetaking downloadable sa website ng SSS

    Hi. Update ko lang din para sa reference ng iba. kasi isa rin ako na nakibasa dito heheh.

    My wife submitted here Maternity Benifits(1 & 2) on May 1, 2017.
    weeks after that, when we checked SSS online, it is stated as CLAIM SETTLED.
    By June 27, she finally received her money on her bank account.

    there is also a bit of discrepancy on the back details that we provided. The bank servicing branch that she provided to SSS was Makati Pasong Tamo.

    While her Bank account servicing branch is actually Makati Insular Ayala.

    despite the error. We still have received the money on her account.

    Thanks! ^_^

    Do you have an article by labor or SSS stating that Maternity reimbursement or MAT2 can be submit up to 10 years?

    My employer keep on saying that to me since I don’t have complete requirements yet.

    Hi!I gave birth last 2014 and passed all the requirements for MAT2 but my previous employer told me that I lacked documents. Can they still file my MAT 2 if I will pass the requirements? If they will file it this year, will it affect my sss benefits if I will get pregnant on this year?

    Hi po. I badly need help. I had a miscarriage last feb this year 2016 and na approve sya ng sss for reimbursement that time I undergone d&c kasi 2 months na nung nwala baby ko. This August I had another miscarriage di ako nakapag ultrasound kasi young sched ko sana nung week na yun 6 weeks preggy na ako dun ako nag start mag bleed and nag I.E. Yung OB ko she suspected threatened abortion bec of the blood clots. I do have the ultrasound after na nung miscarriage but I was just given medication no operation since halos kunti nlang po natira sa loob 😢. Pwd po ba ako mag claim ulit for sss? 2nd child to be ko pa to. I don’t have medical records except sa check up sa ob and ultrasound after nakunan plus 2 Medcert young threatens Ana confirmed incomplete abortion na po. Hope you can find time to help me out.

      Sis ang maipapayo ko humingi ka a ob mo ng med cert na nagpapaliwanag ng lahat..6 weeks dn aq nun.makunan. wala dn aq pregnancy test na maituturing dahil nun una beses nagpachek up aq kasi delayed aq, walang makitang bata ung ob ko s loob so void ung PT ko and wala ako d&c report since complete abortion ang nangyare saken. Almost a yr bago naaprub ung ML ko kc ilang beses na-denied ng SSS even if i already passed mg histopath result as a proof na nabuntis nga ko. So ang ginawa ng OB ko binigyan nia aq ng medical cert na andun lahat ng explanation about my case at jn ang pinasa ko s employer ko. Then after 3 days naaprub ang maternity benifit ko. 🙂 so i suggest na hingi ka sa ob mo ng med cert na nagpapaliwanag ng lahat. Kc minsan maxado tlgang mahigpit si SSS

    Hi po, SSS contributor po ako since May 2012 until October 2015 through employment. Expected Delivery date ko po is next month, August 24,2016. I am outside the country na po ngayon. Question ko po is paano po ako mag file ng MAT1 considering na resigned na ako sa previous job ko ( I resigned last October 2015) and my sss contributions were through my them, what are the steps and requirements po ang dapat ko sundin? Should I file MAT1 through my previous employer or can I do it directly to SSS? thank you po 🙂


    • Rhens Aquino
      Aug 01, 2016 @ 14:49:15

      Hi Joy, If October 2015 ka resign sa work mo then your eligible for a maternity benefits. I suggest you create an online account to sss. There you could file your MAT1 as separated or voluntary member since your outside the country to do it manually. Do it now kasi dapat ang MAT1 is filed before the date of your delivery. If you failed to do this you could submit letter of explanation why you are late to submit your notification but in some cases most of it na late ang filling ng MAT1 is automatically disqualified for a maternity benefit application. There if you register you could read the information and requirements for the processing of your MAT1 and MAT2. Goodluck!

Pero I have all the screenshoots po na nag contact ako sa sss about my intention to notify them of my pregnancy through email and facebook sss inquiry account, siguro pwede ko ito i attach sa letter ko po. Mga 2017 pa po balik ko sa Pinas, pwede pa po ba ako mag file nyan? Thanks po

    Jul 17, 2016 @ 14:20:32

    Hi Good pm po, ask ko lang po kung pwede ko pa ba mafile yung Mat 2 ko? ito kasi nangyari nakalimutan ko na nakanotify pala ako sa SSS nung 1st child ko that was November 2012, then nagwork ako nung May-Nov 2012 so pag-notify ko sa SSS hindi ko na naisali sa pagpirma yung employer ko kasi end of contract na ako. Tapos nanganak ako last week of January. Pwede pa ba yun e-file ngayon? by the way I have my new employer now for almost 3 years..Thanks amd Godbless


    • Rhens Aquino
      Aug 01, 2016 @ 15:05:53

      Hi Juliefer, Yes! you can still file for a maternity reimbursement If you filed your MAT1 before your delivery date in January 2013. Processing of MAT2 is good until 10 years as long as you’ve file your MAT1 before your delivery date. You need the MAT1 form with the stamp received by SSS to go alone you’re claim. I suggest you register first to sss online to see your contribution for the year 2011-2012 to know if your eligible for a maternity benefits. If you have at least 3 monthly contribution for this range of month of Aug. 2011 – Jul. 2012 then you are eligible for a maternity benefits. GoodLuck!


  76. Stef
    Jul 15, 2016 @ 14:51:08

    GoodDay ! Ask ko po kung pwede pa ifile ang Maternity Benefits ko po? Kase nung nagfile po ako nung January pinabalik po saken ng taga SSS-Congressional dahil po naka temporary number lang ako sa SSS pero complete po ako ng requirements(Ultrasound,BirthCertificate) due date ko po ng March11 pero napaaga po ako ng panganganak nung Feb.29 . Employed po ako pero di po naasikaso ng employer ko kaya binigyan nalang po ako ng NonCash Advance Certificate with the L501. Ngayon po itatanong ko lang kung pwede ko pa po ihabol to? Updated po ang SSS contribution ko since March2015 to February2016. If pwede pa po posible po ba na pagsabayin ipasa ang MAT1 & MAT2 ? And how long po ang process to get my cheque? Thankyou! GodBless!a


    • Rhens Aquino
      Aug 01, 2016 @ 15:30:50

      Hi Stef, Fixed first yung temporary number mo sa SSS, kadalasan kasi ng naka temporary number is hindi pa naipapasok or wala ka pa talagang register number sa sss. Ask sss pano ang process ng pag change ng temporary number mo to register solely owned sss number of yours. Then dun mo asikasuhin ang MAT1 mo, but now you need a letter of explanation why you are late to submit your MAT1. Kung employed ka pa din dapat talaga employer mo ang lalakad nyan. If not ask sss how to process yung benefits mo since ang pag process lang ng Maternity benefit is two way; One is thru employer if your employed, Two is thru seperated or voluntary member process. Since employed ka pa din with your employer ask sss on how is your process. Since hindi inaasikaso ng employer mo yung benifits mo. Goodluck!

      Hi Myrene, This is not a SSS online service this is just a blog, so there’s no way for us to know your inquiry. I suggest you call SSS or go to the nearest SSS branch and ask for it or you could do the quickest solution to register online here is the link, once register, you could check there the status of your claim thru SMEC tab under maternity benefits section.

      Aug 01, 2016 @ 15:42:34

      Hi kling-Kling, Yes, if you have file your MAT1 before delivery date, but if you failed to do so you can still try to submit your MAT1 and MAT2 together with a letter of explanation why you’re late in filling your MAT1 (hope they would accept your explanation) and if your eligible for a maternity benefits by your monthly contribution. by the way processing of maternity benefits is until 10 years.

    I had a ceasarian delivery and i have submitted my MAT-1 when i was 7 months pregnant that was in august, there was a maternity notification created on online sss, but I haven’t receive any cash advance prior to giving birth, I was told my employer that it will be given as soon as they’ve processed my MAT-2, so I waited, but until now I haven’t receive eveb for the reimbursent and I don’t know why, I resigned last january and was advised that i need to have a certicate of non cash advance L501 along with my requirements, what will be my next step? Looking forward for you answer, thanks! 🙂

      hi po. dapat ba upon application sinabi mo na thru cheque or bank mo kukunin yung reimbursement? kasi yung sakin after receiving the requirements may binigay lang sakin na slip wala nmn sinabi kaya nagtanong ako anong gagawin after. sabi dun wait lng daw after a month tas nagtanong ulit ako if pano makukuha, sinabi lng na ime.mail lng daw yung cheque. i didnt know pwd pala thru bank kasi wala nmn silang sinabi (1st time to apply here and voluntary kasi ako)

    Hi sissy! Want to share my experience. I filed last April 4. And Approved last April 28. As per checking on my SSS account online. Settled na po ang status. I tried to follow up sa SSS Hotline. Then they advice na i-monitor ko daw this week until next week. Kasi after settled date may 8-10 banking days pa daw to process ang payment thru bank. Update ko kayo pag pumasok na sa account ko. 3rd day ng 8-10 banking days ko ngayon 🙂
    I’m separated from my employer. I submitted all the requirements needed. Kaya mabilis lang ang process 🙂

    Update as of May 18, 2016

    I have already received my benefits in my bank account. Deposited yesterday (May 17,2016)

    Filed April 4
    Approved April 28
    Settled May 5
    Received May 17

    They told me at sss na wait ng 8 to 10 banking days from the date they settled it. And as fast as Im expecting mas mabilis sya sa inaasahan ko. Bank ko is BDO. And the good thing is they called me (BDO) to inform na deposited na sya kahapon pa. If thru bank I suggest BDO. You can advice them once na may pumasok sa account mo at pwede ka nila tawagan.

    Hi! I need some help. I am currently 7 months preggy and I am employed. But my contract will end on April 15 (so it means I will be unemployed) and I need to file for my SSS Maternity Benefit. Our HR told me they will submit the requirements and they will inform me maybe on or before April 15 kung ma a-approve. If not, then I will file it sa SSS branch directly. Does anyone experienced my situation before? I need some advice, I will appreciate any response. 🙂

    Para sa mga nagtatanong po na separated from employer, need nyo punta sa kahit anong branch, tell them na separated ka, bigyan ka nila list ng req. Kakapasa ko lang nung req ko last week. Need ng ob history,L501(photocopy ng signature ng mga authorized person from your company),birth certificate ni baby (duly registered sa local registry or nso,) letter of explanation (para dun sa mga hindi nakapagfile ng MAT1), certificate of employment, certificate of non-advancement of payment (kukunin nyo sa prev company nyo stating na wala kayong nakuhang any amount from your employer), record of operation (kukunin nyo sa hospital) CS kasi ako, 40k+ ang makukuha ko. 2-4 weeks daw. Nakakuha na ako before kasi nakunan ako at niraspa nung 2014, 23k naman nakuha ko nun. Mga 1 month yung first kong cheque.

    Hi good day ng resign po ko ng may 2015 sa company and then ng file po ko ng mat 1 June 2015 now po ang tanung ko anu Anu po ba ung mga requirements for separated members ??

    Yung l501 po ba sa may employer ko ba un kkunen tsaka ung non advancement need further answer tnx


    • Raquel Diagro (@ms_kellyjugger)
      Dec 12, 2015 @ 00:33:56

      Yes po, yung L501 sa company mo makukuha yun. Ask ka ng list of req sa any branch ng SSS then pakita mo sa HR nyo. Alam na nila yun. Since nakapagfile ka ng MAT1, kakailanganin mo yung certificate of non advancement from your company kasi yun yung proof kung may nakuha kang pera o wala. Need mo ng OB history, Birth certificate ni baby (certified true copy from local civil registry or nso),record of operation with operative technique certified true copy (get it from the hospital of clinic kung saan ka nanganak, certificate of employment, 2 valid ids w/ photocopy

    Hi, ak ko lang po. Nag resign ako sa company last May, and nakuha ko naman ung COE kp ng August. Nag file ako ngMAT-1 last Nov. 16, dun ko lang nalaman yung mga additional rrquirements. Tanong ko po, magkakaproblema po ba kung yung pipirma ng L-501 form at Certificate of Non-cash Advance pareho pero yung nakapirma sa COE ko iba din? I specifically ask my previous employer kung pwedeng iisang tao lang ang pipirma kaso sabi nila not authorized to sign daw sa L-501 at Certificate of Non cash advance yung nakapirma sa COE ko. Thanks for any respond

      After mo manganak need mo po ilakad mga additional docs..kukunin mo sa previous employer mo ung Cert.of Employment,L501 tsaka Certification for No Cash advance on maternity..ung gnwa nlang pag encode nanotify lng na makiclaim ka ng Maternity,pagkatapos mo manganak need mo kumpletuhin nkalista sa MAT2 na form mga ipapasa mo..kasama certified true copy ng baby mo..saka plang mapaprocess yun pgkapanganak mo..tpos hintay kpa mga 1month cguro

      Goodluck po sa panganganak. Uhm, after mong i-file, pwede mong makuha from 2-4 weeks, minsan inaabot din ng 2 mos. Yung una ko, nakuha ko sya ng halos 1 month din kasi kinuha ko lang sa post office, matagal kasi pag dinilever pa nila sa house nyo.

    Sep 14, 2015 @ 22:56:58

    Hi. I found you blog when I was checking for similar issue as mine. I got separated from my last company last Aug 2014. Since then, hindi na ako nakapag hulog. I got pregnant and gave birth June 2015. Hindi ako nakapag file ng Mat1 kasi hindi ko alam nung una na pwede naman pala. Then may nag advise sa akin na magtry pumunta sa sss. I went to the newly opened Masangkay branch and they advised me na since nakapanganak na ako, MAT2 na ang kailangan ko isubmit, no need to file yung MAT1. I submitted the MAT2 form, registered birth cert, LS-05, COE and OR technique (CS ako) last August 24. When I checked online, SSS main received it Sep 2, then it was encoded Sep 9. Tapos I just checked now, settled na yung claim. Waiting for my check na lang.

    Ang tanong ko ngayon ay, yung mailman ba na regular na naghahatid ng sulat ang maghahatid nung cheque? Dun kasi naka address ang mga IDs ko sa parents ko, pero hindi na ako doon nakatira. Also, may loan ako na hindi ko nahuhulugan, pero yung amount sa cheque ay buo pa din based sa computation sa akin. Does that mean hindi ibinawas yung loan?

      Hi. Had the same issue. L501 kasi is “personal document” daw ayon sa company. Kinulit ko lng ng kinulit yung dti kong pinasukan kya bnigyan ako inaraw araw ko tlga. Kinausap ko ang sss regarding dito. Sad to say kailngan tlga ng sss kase dyan nila binabase yung pirma na nasa documents nyo. Meron akong nabasa na kpag 6 months knang resign sa company hndi na need ng l501 but if within 6 mos, need tlga. BUT maraming mahigpit na inspectors sa sss na kahit more than 6 months ka ng resign hinahanapan pa din ng l501. Hope na mabigyan kayo.

    Hi there! Need help please. This is the first time i will file for sss maternity benefits. The problem is I already miscarried before i even let my employer know that im pregnant and i wasnt able to file for maternity notification form. Im not even sure that i was pregnant until i went to the doctor Jan 25 and was told that was about 4 weeks pregnant and confirmed that i just miscarried. 😥 Should I still submit the maternity notification form or just the reimbursement form would do? Would SSS still approve it? Thanks in advance.

    Its funny how your info and dates are so parallel with mine! I too gave birth last November, filed my maternity during my 4th month of pregnancy, submitted my requirements for maternity claim last January 9, and Imam also a separated member! Haha!

    Anyway, I now have an idea when I should be receiving the cheque. I was planning to go to SSS and ask ( long queue!) but, thanks to you, I would just give it a few more weeks….

      Hi melody… Magpunta ka s SSS and magfile ka ng voluntary… Magbayad ka narin ng contributions mo pwede hanggang May na para maging eligible ka. Kelangan gawin mo n un ASAP para pasok ka s maternity benefit requirements. Taz pwede mo narin isubmit ung MAT-1 mo. Basta punta ka s SSS. Minimum contribution is P110 per month. Hope this helps.

    tatawagan ka ba ng sss to inform you na ready na ung cheque? or need mong pumunta sa sss outlet.. kc pinasa ko ung mga requirements ko nung january 12 sabi nia within 2 weeks ready na un tapos kung nagkaproblema daw tatawagan nila within 1week eh until now wala pa akong narereceive na tawag.

    Hi Sis,

    The submission is not WITHIN 60 days of pregnancy, rather, the earliest is AFTER 60 days of pregnancy and BEFORE birth. 😀

    I was also confused at first, kasi papano naman yung mga irregular na nalaman lang buntis sila after 60 days diba. Hehe.

    Btw, I was also employed, but became a voluntary member before ako mabuntis. Sana di na ako ilagay sa category na “seperated member.” Sobrang hassle nga daw kasi pag seperated ka.

    I truly find this blog helpful, thanks for posting this for the benefit of all the mom’s out there.

    I’d like to also take this chance in sharing my experience with SSS Mat Reimbursement.

    Back in Dec 2013 I left my company due to a case I filed in Dole correlated to my pregnancy. Shamefully speaking, the company of which I served for, illegally suspended me which later on led to illegal termination, to cut things short, I had to continue my quarterly payment as a voluntary member.

    Since my prev company failed to process my Mat 1, I did it instead at SSS Zabarte branch. 2 days after, I checked my SSS online and saw the notification right away, (tuwang tuwa naman ako) for the simplest reason of (mabilis na pala sa gobyerno umaksyon ngayon).

    Come, July 22, I gave birth to my second baby, after three weeks, I received a phonecall from the records dept of the hospital saying that the NB screening and Birth Certificate is now for pick up.

    August 27, I went to SSS to submit all the requirements needed for me to get my reimbursent. I was told to go back 10 days after. Yesterday was the 10th day, surprisingly, my claim is still under review, you know why? because SSS Zabarte sent my documents to the main office just yesterday (bawing bawi lahat ng papuri ko sa SSS) and their excuse? down ang system because they are trying to upgrade to a new platform apart from that they blamed the messenger too, kung alam ko lang ako na sana nagpasa sa Main Office.

    *still im patiently waiting*

    Hi Rose! Thank you for having this blog. We have a similar experience. I’m also giving birth this November 2014 and got separated from the company just this June 2014. I was employed there from March 2012 to June 2014 and as per my static info online, they have paid consistently the max. contribution for me for the period of my employment. At first, I was still confused if I could get the maternity benefit after separating from the company so I thought of becoming a voluntary-paying SSS member but paid only the minimum contribution for July and August 2014. With this post, most of my questions were really answered and I guess I’ll be expecting a 30K check from SSS, too (I hope and pray I get a normal delivery! :)). BTW, aside from SSS, did you claim maternity benefit from PhilHealth too? I think they have that also. If yes, how did you process it? Thanks ahead! 🙂

    Hello there! 🙂 I’ve been paying SSS since 2007. But by Sept 2011, I resigned. Starting Oct 2011 until December 2012, i wasn’t able to pay my contributions. By January 2013 until September 2013, I paid again (employed to voluntary). I filed my MAT 1 last November 2013 – due date is on May 11, 2014. As per online, I am eligible for maternity benefits (max). Now my question is, I’m planning to stop paying my SSS. Do you think there will be problem/s that i might encounter? Napapaisip kasi ako baka bglang hndi na ako eligible because magstop akong magbayad. TIA! 🙂

    Hi Im MC. Ask ko lang po kasi di ko pa nakukuha Maternity benefit ko from sss. Ganito po kasi yon.Last January 2012 I found out that I was pregnant,but I was employed at that time,badly kasi umuwi ako ng province ng walang sabi sabi sa employer ko, so it means AWOL ako sa company. And also I wasn’t able to notify the sss na pregnant ako kasi nd ko agad naisip yon. Until I gave birth last september 23 2012,still hindi ko pa na ii file yong maternity benefit ko. Sabi naman ng SSS pwede daw ako ang mag tuloy ng contributions pero does it really need pa ba ng notification sa previous company ko?..kasi ang nag aapear eh starting nong nag buntis ako wala pa akong contribute ulit,pero may 20 months na hulog na ata ako dun sa sss. Requirements ba talaga ng sss na dapat atleast naka 3 months kang last contributions before giving birth? Thank you po.

    Hi Rose,

    I’m also separated from the company for a year now and i just figured out that i am still eligible for maternity benefits thanks for this post, i’m already 8 months pregnant, i submitted my MAT1 just yesterday however SSS was offline so the personnel asked me to log my sss info together with the expected date of delivery on a log book and she put a stamp on my MAT1 form and an indication that it was offline that day, she then told me to pass my MAT1 together with the MAT2 and all other documents after i gave birth. will it be posted online that i already notify them yesterday or just after i have submitted everything? and in regards with the Non Advance payment and L501 you mentioned that i can get it thru my employer, can i request for it now or just after i gave birth? and then i asked for OB history form yesterday as well and the personnel told me that i wont be needing it since it is only for miscarriage. please advise. thank u.

    Hello Rose! I just submitted my MAT 1 to HR 3 days ago. I am just wondering, since a lot of the ladies here say that you will be given half of the Benefit by your company a few days or weeks before you give birth, is this going to be through my Payroll Card, or this is advance reimbursement going to be in a form of an SSS check?


    • rosesoriano
      Oct 12, 2013 @ 15:21:12

      It will be given through an SSS check or if you are employed, it will be a check from your employer.

      Oct 05, 2013 @ 15:54:55

      On the dropdowns above when you log in to sss website, go to eligibility then go to sickness/maternity. Put in your employer’s SSS number then you would know if you are eligible for maternity benefit.

    Hi …
    I was searching on how to get your maternity reimbursement when i clicked this blog. It really gives me many information and answers most of my question.

    However, i still have some questions.
    I’m currently employed. I was 2 months pregnant when i decided to go to SSS to submit my Maternity Notification. Unfortunately they told me that i’m not yet a member. It really surprises me because my company has been deducting me for my sss contributions for the past 12 months. During my first month in the office they asked me to give the necessary requirements because they will register for me. I did.

    I decided to talked to the HR in my company. They told me that they are not yet authorized to register an employee.

    So what i did is i refunded all the contributions they had deducted for the past 12 months. Then i register to sss last March this year (2013). Am i eligible to receive a maternity benefit? I will give birth on November.

    Also, i haven’t submit my maternity notification now because at first i didn’t know that i need to have an ultrasound.

    And one more thing. Do all companies need to give the half of the benefit before the delivery? Because in my company when you applied for maternity leave you will not receive any salary for the working days you didn’t worked for. I don’t know why it is called ”LEAVE”. And they say they will not give me the half of the benefit.

    I hope you can help me. Thank You.

      If you are separated or self-employed/voluntary member, you will have to submit an OB history. You can get the form from SSS. but if you are employed, OB history would only be required if it’s already your 3rd baby or more ..

        Hi, u said that If you are separated or self-employed/voluntary member you will have to submit an OB history for reimbursement. In my situation I’m still employed and it’s my 1st baby (normal delivery) but why my employer ask me to have the OB history to be fill up my OB? I still wonder ‘coz I have coworker that they didn’t pass OB history form then my employer was able to reimburse there ssss maternity.

    hi! i hope you could help me with my situation. i gave birth last january 2013. i rcv my maternity benefit just before i give birth to my daughter. And then i decided to quit my job to take care of my baby just before my maternity leave ends. After a month i received my last pay, they deducted me the 30k which i rcv as my maternity benefit. Hindi ba benefit ko yon? so why should i pay for it? hope you could help me.. thank you in advance

      If your requirements for MAT 1 and MAT 2 weren’t submitted before you resigned, that’s the reason why they deducted your maternity benefit because it was your employer who gave you the 30k. They wouldn’t be able to have it reimbursed with SSS if you haven’t passed your requirements for your maternity benefit.

    hi, i gave birth last oct 21, 2012, and yet up to now i havent filed my MAT 2 its because of so many requirements, every people/employee of SSS has different list of requirements given to me like lacking of L501 since i was separated when i got pregnant but im qualified because my first 4 months is paid, i cannot understand is L501 optional or is it ok if i only have certificate of no advance payment,,, i am so very disappointed because many times i came back to SSS just because they did not gave me clear/exact list of requirements, its a waste of time, i only have 1 restday per week and its the only time i can takecare of my baby,,, now he is 6 months old, can i still claim my benefit,

    thank you so much!



    • rosesoriano
      Jun 29, 2013 @ 17:46:58

      If you are separated, L501 isn’t optional. It is a requirement together with the non-advancement of payment. L501 is just a list of signatories that are authorized by your previous company’s HR to do transactions with SSS.

    ask ko lng po..mejo confused po kc aq…nag resign aq nung sept.2012..buntis po aq ngaun and delivery ko po ngaung sept.2013..meron na po aq nung mat1,non cash advancement,employment certificate from my last employer..kylngan ko pa po bng mag hulog ng contribution sa sss.kc po ang last na hulog ko pa ay nung sept.2012..tnk you po..


    • rosesoriano
      Jun 29, 2013 @ 17:53:45

      Yes, you should continue your contributions with SSS. Otherwise, you will not receive your maternity benefit. They require at least 3 months of contribution within the last 12 months before your delivery date.

    May 05, 2013 @ 14:21:52

    my past employer is not responding to my request of the said L501.. i dont know where their office is because it is the agency who comes to us and i just stayed with the said agency for just a month.. we just communicate through texting but now their not answering my calls and text… i think they dont want to cooperate.. what should i do

    • rosesoriano
      Jun 29, 2013 @ 17:55:45

      I think that’s already the full payment. As far as I know, for the new 2013 maternity benefit, it will already be given in full unlike before. But it wouldn’t hurt to follow up with SSS as well so you will be sure.

    • rosesoriano
      Jun 29, 2013 @ 17:59:26

      yes. the salary loan is a different benefit from the maternity benefit so you should be able to enjoy your maternity benefit even though you have an existing salary loan.

    • rosesoriano
      Apr 08, 2013 @ 11:06:46

      Im not exactly sure, but I think there will be a very big delay in processing your maternity reimbursement. Because if you are employed, it will be your employer who’s going to give you your maternity benefit and SSS will reimburse them afterwards. I suggest you wait until you receive your full maternity benefit 🙂


  325. rosesoriano
    Mar 31, 2013 @ 12:34:27

    symae – have you received your check na po ba ? if settled na ang claim online, usually nasa local post office na ung check. kasi a settled claim means they’ve already sent out the check. Go to your post office to ask if they already have the check if you still haven’t received it by now

    • rosesoriano
      Aug 25, 2012 @ 18:48:44

      If you underwent Cesarean delivery, they can reimburse up to 39,000 depending on the amount of contribution. If you received 29000, then you MIGHT be receiving 9,000 if you underwent Cesarean delivery because they already gave you the 29000 in advance.

      Did you enroll your SSS online ? If not, I suggest you do. You can check there right away the status of your cheque. It is much less hassle free and saves you the time, money, and trouble in going to the SSS branch.

    hi!i just read your blog about the maternity benefit, i am really confused =)regarding this maternity benefit.can you help me??=) my due date is next month (July). i am also a separated member,i was employed from january 2011 up until january 2012. my last contribution was until feb.2012. how should i compute for the benefit that i will get from sss? and do i really need to go to my previous employer,to our HR and get the employer’s certification of a non-advance payment of maternity benefit with the L501? because last time i went there to get my MAT-1 form they didn’t give me any of those L501 certification, they just give me the copy of my mat-1 which was already received by sss…

    hoping for your reply.

    thanks =)


    • rosesoriano
      Jul 14, 2012 @ 18:02:17

      Yes, you really have to pass the L501, if you lack even just 1 requirement, they won’t process your maternity benefit. I had to go back like 3 times before I completed my requirements. You also have to get a form from SSS wherein you will have to let your OB sign it. Just go to SSS first to ask for the list of the requirements.

      Regarding the amount, it depends on how much your salary/contribution is. If your contribution is maximum, then you will be receiving Php 30000.

    • rosesoriano
      Jul 14, 2012 @ 18:04:06

      From what I’ve read at the back of the MAT – 2 Form, I think it’s just up until 60 days after you gave birth, but you are always welcome to inquire at your nearest SSS branch because maybe they give extensions.

      Aug 25, 2012 @ 18:45:06

      Im not sure if you can still get it. Because if you check at the back page of MAT 2 form, it indicates they can only process reimbursement up to 60 days after date of delivery. But there will be no harm done if you try. You’ll never know, they might still reimburse it. 🙂

I am a mother of 3, I didnt had the chance to claim a maternity reimbursement for my 1st child, but I asked SSS if I am still eligible to claim it even though I have rcvd the reimbursement fotr my 2nd child and now waiting the check for my 3rd child and they said YES. As long as you have atleast 3months of contributions within the 12month period preceding your delivery date, you can still get a reimbursement. Ofcourse, that should go hand in hand with your complete requirements. :)) Hope that helps.
