How Do I Compute My SSS Maternity Benefit?

By
QUESTION from Blessing Calayag:

Hi :)  My name is Blessing. How do I compute my SSS maternity benefit? My due date is May 2015. These are my contributions:

2013

Oct - 1,560
Nov - 1,560
Dec - 1,560

2014

Jan - 1,760
Feb - 1,760
Mar - 1,760
Apr - 1,760
May - 1,760
Jun - 1,760
Jul - 1,760
Aug - 1,760
Sep - 1,760
Oct - 1,760
Nov - 1,760
Dec - 1,760

ANSWER:

Since you'll give birth in May 2015, your Semester of Contingency is Jan to June 2015.
SSS will look for your 6 highest salary credits within the 12 months prior to your semester of contingency. Your 12-month period is Jan to Dec 2014.

Your monthly contributions in 2014 were all maximum monthly contributions.
Obviously, your 6 highest contributions are six 1,760, and
your 6 highest monthly salary credits are six 16,000.

Add your 6 highest monthly salary credits:
16,000 + 16,000 + 16,000 + 16,000 + 16,000 + 16,000

Your salary credit total is 96,000.

Divide your salary credit total by 180 days.
96,000 / 180 = 533.33

Your salary credit per day is 533.33 pesos.

If you'll deliver normally, your SSS maternity benefit will be:
533.33 pesos x 60 days = 32,000 pesos

If you'll delivery by Cesarean Section or CS, your SSS maternity benefit will be:
533.33 pesos x 78 days = 41,600 pesos
