Here's a brief procedure on how to be a member in SSS (Social Security System) Philippines. As long as you secure all the needed requirements, it is very easy to register in SSS. Just be patient with the long line (falling in line system) due to many SSS applicants and members everyday inside an SSS Office/building.

Steps in SSS Membership Registration
1. You should get an E-1 form in the SSS office. Just ask someone in the office where you can get an E-1 form and fill it out. Here's a sample of an E-1 form below:

2. Submit this E-1 form in two (2) copies.
3. Also submit the original copy and photocopy of the following documents (requirements):
In the absence of any of the primary documents, submit any two of the following where the name and date of birth of the registrant appear:
Record of Employment/Employer ID
GSIS Member's Record
Certification form National Archives
Alien Certificate of Registration
School/Voter's Identification Card
Birth Certificate of children
Joint Affidavit of two disinterested persons attesting to the correct name and date of birth of the applicant.
4. If the above-stated documents (requirements) are not available at the time of registration, comply immediately by submitting to the nearest SSS office to facilitate availment of benefits and privileges.
1. Issuance of SS number does not automatically qualify you for coverage. You must first be engaged in an occupation subject to SSS coverage.
2. An SS number is a lifetime number. No one should have more than one SSS number.

Hi I just want to ask if you need to register as member of SSS, you should go to the SSS office personally or is it okay if you have proxy? I mean, I want to register to SSS and I don't have much time to go to SSS for forms and everything but I can ask someone to do it for me. Is it possible? Or I just download a form thru internet and then fill this out then I will go to your office by myself and proceed to the procedure of registration there?

hi! i'm Mr. Marvin Canalija Gonzales, 32 year old. i remember, i was able to register SSS when i was still on my first high school year. do i still have a chance to re-activate my old membership or do i'll just have to apply as new member? thank you and more power!
Sonia orourke, you need to go to SSS office and request for your SSS number. You can't get a new SSS number because it's SSS policy that no one is allowed to have more than one SSS number. Your SSS number is a lifetime number.
