MANILA – The state-run Social Security System (SSS) said Wednesday members could now pay their contributions through its mobile and other online channels.

In a statement, SSS president and CEO Michael Regino said individual members – self-employed, voluntary, non-working spouses, and land-based overseas Filipino workers – may pay their contributions using their GCash, PayMaya, and Bank of the Philippine Islands account, or debit/credit card through the mobile app.

Individual members may also use the mobile app and website of other collecting partners accredited by SSS, such as the Robinsons Bank Corp., Security Bank Corp. (SBC) – SBOL, Union Bank of the Philippines (UBP), AltPayNet, CIS Bayad Center, Inc., GCash, and PayMaya.

“We encourage our members and employers to pay their contributions using our online channels as through these payment facilities, they no longer have to go to our branches. These can be accessed at the safety and convenience of their homes or offices,” Regino said.

Household employers could pay online through the SBC – Digibanker and UBP, including its UnionBank Online App.

Meanwhile, business employers may use the BPI – Bizlink and BancNet’s eGov facility through its 19 participating banks to make online payments.

The auto debit arrangement is available for all types of payers through the BPI, Country Builders Bank, First Consolidated Bank, Metropolitan Bank and Trust Co., and Philippine National Bank, Regino said. (PNA)
