OFWs can now pay SSS contributions using mobile app

Social Security System (SSS) members abroad can pay through the SSS mobile app using their PayMaya account or any Visa, Mastercard, or JCB credit, debit, or prepaid card.

SSS President and Chief Executive Officer Aurora C. Ignacio and PayMaya Philippines, Inc. Chief Executive Officer Orlando B. Vea formally signed the agreement, making PayMaya as one of the 85 accredited collecting and paying partners of SSS, 35 of which are already Real-Time Processing of Contributions (RTPC) system compliant, said SSS website. 

State-run Social Security System (SSS) has tapped digital financial services leader PayMaya to allow members to conveniently pay their contributions through the SSS mobile app. PayMaya is providing its universal payments platform to SSS to allow it to accept PayMaya as well as all card and mobile wallet payments through its mobile app and soon on its other online channels and branches.

For those without a card, they can simply sign up for a PayMaya account by downloading the PayMaya app on their iOS or Android devices and use the mobile number associated with their account when they pay via the SSS mobile app, the report added.

Last July, Ignacio and her team met with the Filpino community in Bangkok to answer and address issues about SSS among Thailand-based OFWs. The meeting was arranged by Secretary Antonio Cablitas, Presidential Adviser on Investments.
