LEGAZPI CITY – The Social Security System (SSS) Bicol Division announced on Wednesday that employed, self-employed and voluntary members and active employers can now pay their contributions using online applications.

Jeanette Mapa, SSS Legazpi Branch spokesperson, said active members can now pay through the ShopeePay application.

"For our 623,667 active members, they can now enjoy paying their contributions in a cashless, convenient, and hassle-free way," Mapa said.

She added that the Shopeepay app is a remittance sub-agent of Bayad Center, Inc., an SSS-accredited collecting partner.

"It is a digital wallet, accessible through the Shopee App, wherein users can make safe and cashless payments for online transactions such as bill payments and other transactions," she said.

The SSS has various accredited bank and non-bank collecting partners that offer over-the-counter and online payment options. These are in addition to the Automated Tellering System facilities located in SSS branches.
