The fastest way to unlock your SSS account is to go to SSS office and request for unlocking or resetting your locked SSS account. Please don't forget to bring your SSS ID or UMID. If you don't have those ID's, bring any valid ID's and a your SSS number. A valid id is required for identity verification.
Another option is to call SSS Customer Service and request for unlocking your SSS account. Just prepare your SSS number before calling.

Suggestions/Recommendations to SSS
- SSS should implement a temporary (24-hour) locked-in of SSS account. After 24 hours, the locked SSS accounts should be accessible again. This is like the lock-in feature of some major banks in the Philippines. If you get locked to your online banking account today, you can log-in or access it again tomorrow. Hassle-free isn't it?
