What is Date of Coverage in SSS? Is It Important?


DATE OF COVERAGE in SSS is the Date  (Month and Year)  set by SSS as the start of your membership.

It is NOT the date when you got your SSS number.

FOR EMPLOYEES:
If your first contribution to SSS was as Employee,
your Date of Coverage (DOC) is the Month and Year you first worked for your first employer that reported you to the SSS.

FOR SELF-EMPLOYED:
If your first contribution to SSS was as Self-Employed, your DOC is the Month and Year of your first valid contribution to SSS as Self-Employed.

Your first contribution is valid if you registered as Self-Employed using SSS RS-1 Form and this form was approved, stamped and signed by SSS.

FOR OFWs:
If your first contribution to SSS was as OFW, your DOC is the Month and Year of  your first contribution to SSS as OFW.

If you were not Employed, Self-Employed or Non-Working Spouse before becoming an OFW, you should first submit to SSS an accomplished SSS OW-1 Form before making your first contribution as OFW.

FOR NON-WORKING SPOUSE:
If you registered as Non-Working Spouse, your DOC is the Month and Year of your first contribution to SSS as Non-Working Spouse.

FOR VOLUNTARY MEMBERS:
If your FIRST contribution to SSS was as Voluntary, your first contribution is INVALID.
The cashier accepted your payment because she did not know it was your first payment to SSS as Voluntary.

You must FIRST register and pay as Employed, or Self-Employed, or OFW, or Non-Working Spouse before becoming Voluntary later on.

Is Date of Coverage important?

Yes, this date is very important.  You WILL NOT be able to get any SSS benefit, even your pension, if you do not have a Date of Coverage.

If you have a Date of Coverage, it means that you registered with SSS correctly and properly and that SSS approved your membership.

How Can I Know if I have a Date of Coverage?
Two ways:
- You visit the nearest SSS with your ID and ask your DOC. Many branches ask you to fill up a verification slip to present to the SSS officer.
-  or You enroll in SSS Online service so you can see your Date of Coverage.

  3. How to check your Date of Coverage:
    Enroll in SSS online service. After your enrollment is processed, login, click Member Info and you'll see your Date of Coverage near your name and date of birth.

  4. Hi ngayun ko lang po nalaman na wala po akong date of coverage sa sss ko , hindi yata na update ng dating employer ko. Ano po yung dapat kong gawin

    1. No date of coverage: Wala kang date of coverage pero meron kang mga posted contributions? Ang status mo ba sa online account mo ay Employed? Tawagan mo ang dati mong HR or employer at sabihin mo na wala kang Date of Coverage sa SSS. Mag-request ka ng copy ng R1-A form (Employment report form) na kung saan andon yong name mo, then pa-xerox mo ito (get your own copy) and submit it to SSS together with a letter to SSS requesting that they enter your Date of Coverage.
      Asikasuhin mo ito asap kasi wala kang pension or other benefits kung wala kang date of coverage.

    1. Hi Lorven: Employed ka ba ngayon? Ask your HR kung naireport ka na sa SSS para ireport ka nila using the correct SSS form. Kung hindi ka pa employed at meron kang source of income, register as Self-employed at SSS. Bring your ID and any proof of your source of income (barangay cert or sales commission receipts). Dapat merong SSS approval yong registration form mo before paying your SSS contribution. Yong mga naunang payments mo as Voluntary ay invalid kaya irefund mo. Write a letter to SSS asking them to refund your invalid voluntary payments. Write amount, receipt no., date of payment and total. Present photocopies of receipts.

    1. Employer's Date of Coverage is the first day of work of the first employee, as reported to the SSS through R-1A. Tanungin mo sa employer mo o hanapin nio
      yong R1 nio or first R-1A.

      Delete
  7. Puede rin namang pumunta sa SSS yong authorized representative nio to ask your employer's date of coverage

    1. Galing po kmi sa SSS at tinanong nga po ung date of coverage, nde dw po nia masilip un, kelangan dw po i trace nmin ung file nmin nung 1st payment... pano nga po un kung nde n makita? Tnx.

      Delete
    2. Hindi nia masilip?: How can they help employer members if they don't have access to the DOC? Kasi sa individual members, nakikita nila kung meron o wala. If you can't find documents, ask the owner kung kelan sia nag-start ng operation or kung kelan sia nagreport sa SSS, then enter dates until mag-match sa andon sa SSS.

    3. panu po sa mga ofw mam? 1st hulog palang.,. peru hinanapan kami nang DOC.. hndi kasi ako maka apply nang umid

    4. OFW: Ang first payment mo ba sa SSS ay as OFW? Kahuhulog mo pa lang? Kung andito ka pa sa Philippines, go back to SSS at mag-register as OFW. Sa Personal Record form, icheck mo yong portion ng OFW doon. Bring your passport with visa or OFW job contract as proof of your being an OFW. After approval, pay your first contribution as OFW. Continue paying in the next months. Hindi ko alam kung naging mabilis na ang pag-post nila ng DOC, pero dati it takes them 3 months to post DOC. Later on, mag-enroll ka sa SSS online para macheck mo kung meron ka nang DOC. You will need your payment receipt transaction number.

    1. Hi noel: Oo, maintindihan ko kung starting pa lang sila, pero sana pinag-register ka nang tama kahit self-employed para nagkaroon ka ng DOC 6 years ago. Nakaipon ka na sana ng 72 contributions towards your pension and for other benefits like loan. Kausapin mo ang HR o employer mo na ayusin yong SSS mo ASAP para penalties lang ang additional gastos nila. They will pay all your contributions plus penalties. Kung hindi nila remedyuhan, puede kang pumunta sa sa SSS branch nearest your company's location. Keep your payslips and photocopy your company ID -- these will be proofs of your employment.

  10. Ma'am good day! Ask ko lang po bakit ganun sinunod ko ung sinabi nyo na ung employer date of coverage eh starting sa first day of work of the first employee, as reported to the SSS through R-1A. Andun din naman po sa papers, pero pag nagta-try ako magregister online as employer "Date of Coverage is not the same with SSS records." ang laging lumalabas. Hope matulungan nyo po ako salamat po ng marami.

  11. Hi Tam: Try mo kayang 01 yong day. Kung nagla-lock after trying some dates, call SSS (try late at night) 920-6446 to 55 or go to SSS and ask. Bring your ID and proof you're the authorized representative of your company.

    1. binaybay ko na po ma'am lahat ng date from jan2014 to jan2017 "Date of Coverage is not the same with SSS records" pa din po ang laging lumalabas. try ko po tawagan this day. due kase ng payment eh this 15th day.

    2. Siguro you also tried yong "Start of Operation" na nasa R1 nio?

      Delete
    3. opo ma'am, feb 1, 2014 po ang nakalagay. pero ayaw tlaga. di ko na alam kung asan ang sablay nito. kase pasok n naman lahat ng contribution dun sa sss nung isa kung tauhan na pamangkin ko din naman.

      Delete
    4. Kumusta Tam, alam mo na ang DOC mo? Subukan mo nga ang Jan 1, 2014... kasi that's the start of the quarter na nag-start of operation mo. Kasi I noticed yong aking DOC ay Jan 1 kahit Feb 14 ako nagsimulang mag-work.

  13. self-employed, no date of coverage (DOC): Kung di ka nag-register as self-employed, mag-register ka muna. Yong Personal Record form ng SSS, merong portion doon for self-employed. Bring proof of source of income like receipts or Avon ID, or insurance commission receipt, business permit.
    Kung registered ka na, at wala ka pa ring DOC, kagaya pa rin siguro ng dati na you need to wait for around 3 months and pay 3 monthly contributions before you are given a DOC

    1. DOC: Magkakaroon ka lang ng DOC kapag meron nang na-post na valid contribution mo. Valid ang contribution kung niremit ng employer o nabayaran mo after na-approve ng SSS ang application mo for self-employed. Yes, kapag meron nang DOC, puede nang mag-apply for UMID. Iba-iba ang processing time for UMID. Puedeng from one month to one year. Mabagal din kasi ang movement sa postal system. Ang average siguro is 3 months.

    2. thanks for your response ma'am. btw po ma'am nung araw po na nagpamember ako,nagbayad po agad ako at kinabukasan po nakatanggap po ako ng mensahe mula sa SSS na posted na po ung contribution payment ko. after 4 days po bumalik po ako sa SSS for SSS ID or UMID. nung tinaype na po SS number ko ay wala pa po akong DOC.. bumalik daw po ako after 3 weeks. So ngayon po paano ko po malalaman na may DOC na po ako? i mean makakatanggap din po ba ako ng mensahe mula SSS katulad ng contribution payment ko po?

      Delete
    3. DOC: Ang alam ko hindi tinitext kung meron ka nang DOC . Yong contribution, nate-text kasi ginawan ng software. May 3 weeks na ba? Balikan mo yong nagsabi ng 3 weeks para matanong. Noong nagpa-member ka ba ay self-employed ang tsinek mo? Ininterview ka ba? At merong isinulat na monthly contribution amount sa registration form mo?

      Delete
    4. opo self employed po ako. Odd Job lang po. wala naman po masyadong interview. Sinulat ko din po ung monthly contribution amount sa registration form ko. babalikan ko plang po next week para maitanong ko po ung about sa DOC ko. maraming salamat po.
