All existing members of the Social Security System (SSS) have the option to access their accounts online through My.SSS.
This is a service portal that lets members check their contributions, update and manage membership records, make online transactions, set appointments with their local SSS service branches, request copies of their records, and process other transactions virtually instead of having to visit a SSS office physically.
How to Register for SSS Online
Having access to the online version of your SSS account is very convenient since you no longer need to go to a SSS branch physically. Here are the steps on how to register at the SSS website.
To create or register for an online account, follow these steps:
Visit the SSS portal registration page at https://member.sss.gov.ph/.
Choose the “Register” option. You can find it below the “Member Login” section.
You will be directed to the Online Member User ID Registration page, where you will see the following options:
- Savings account number, UBP Quick Card, or UMID – ATM savings account number registered in SSS
- Mobile number registered in SSS
- UMID card
- Employer ID number or Household employer ID number
- Paid payment reference number, SBR number, or Payment receipt transaction number
- Date of the last loan
- Transaction number in your Personal Record or Unified Multi-Purpose ID (UMID) Application (E-1/E-6)(The transaction number is available only for online SS Number applicants from December 10, 2020 onwards)
- Check number of any SSS monthly pension
Choose one of the pieces of information you initially provided to SSS to proceed.
Provide the required information.
Fill out the SSS online form with the information needed. Make sure that you do not leave a field blank, especially those marked by an asterisk (*). Here are some tips to prevent errors when signing up:
- If your first or last name exceeds the character limit on the form, check your SSS ID or UMID and follow the format used. (If you do have your SSS ID or UMID on hand, you may contact the SSS hotline at 920-6446 to 55. Be ready to verify your account information, as needed.)
- If you do not have a middle name, you can leave the field blank.
- Use the drop-down calendar when inputting your birth date to avoid errors or an incorrect date of birth.
- If you selected “UMID Card” in Step 1 (see above), provide your UMID Card pin code. (You can find more information about the UMID pin code in the FAQs section below.)
- Tick the CAPTCHA box found at the bottom of the page.
- Place a tick on the small box beside the “I accept the Terms of Service” option so you can proceed with the registration.
Check your registered email address for the validation notice.
After signing up, check the email address you registered with SSS for the validation and activation email from email@example.com. The notice is usually sent within 30 minutes to an hour after registration. If you have not received an email, check your spam folder.
Activate your SSS Online Account.
Check the email notification you received from SSS and click on the activation link provided. You should activate your registered online account immediately. The link you received will expire after five (5) working days if not used right away.
You will be redirected to the page where you need to set up the password for your online SSS account.
Ensure that your chosen password meets the following conditions:
- Password length must be between 8 and 20 alphanumeric characters.
- The first character must be an alphabet.
- You cannot include special characters in your password.
- The password must be different from your chosen User ID.
Once you are done inputting your password, re-type it in the next field to confirm. Click the Submit button to finalize. If both password inputs match, you will be directed to the SSS Online login page.
Input your User ID and password if you wish to log in.

Do I need to visit the SSS Main Office at East Avenue, Diliman, Quezon City, Philippines, to apply for a SSS account?
If you are a new SSS member or intend to be one, you will need to create or open an account first.
However, you do not necessarily need to go to the Main SSS Building (East Avenue, Diliman Office) to do this. You can choose to register online instead.
