SSS President and Chief Executive Officer Aurora C. Ignacio said that SSS had extended the payment deadline for SSS contributions. SSS made this decision after the President placed the entire country under a state of calamity due to the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19).
She said that self-employed, voluntary, and non-working spouse members can pay their SSS contributions for the applicable months of January to March 2020, or the first quarter of 2020 until June 1, 2020.
On the other hand, regular and household employers have until June 1, 2020 to pay for their employee’s contributions from February to April May 2020 without incurring any penalties.
Employers with approved installment proposals under the Contribution Penalty Condonation Program must deposit their post-dated checks due in February, March, April, and May 2020 on June 1, 2020.
Ignacio added that contributions paid retroactively by self-employed, voluntary, and non-working spouse members will not be used as eligibility for any benefit claim if the payment date falls within or after the semester of contingency.
