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.

  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.

  5. hi? po tanong ko lang po? ngayon ko lang po nalaman na wla po akong date of coverage? ksi daw po ay nag voluntary po ako nung first contribution ko? anu po ba ang dapat kong gawin?

    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.

  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

      Delete
    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.

    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.

    ReplyDelete
  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?

    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?

    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.

    1. Yes, kung meron kang Date of Coverage. Kung na-approve yong application mo as self-employed, ituloy mo lang ang pagbayad mo ng contribution, para makakuha ka ng ID. Kung hindi mo makita sa online account mo, you can go to SSS and verify your status kung meron kang Date of Coverage.

    1. Hi hazel, noong nag-submit ka ba ng form, hiningan ka ba ng proof of source of income? as proof na talagang self-employed ka? Or ininterview ka ba tungkol sa source of income mo? Meron ba siyang isinulat na amount of monthly contribution mo sa form mo? Andian ba yong form mo? Kung na-approve ka as self-employed, magkakaroon ka ng date of coverage usually after 3 monthly contributions, based sa mga nababasa ko na comments.

  22. Ano pong dapat kung gawin d ko matrace yung una kong employer paano ako kukuha ng date of coverage ano pong dapat kung gawin e useless lang pala ang sss ko kasi d pala ako makuha ng benifits employed po ako ngayon as seafarer.

    ReplyDelete
  23. Hi seafarer, meron ka na bang one month or more na seafarer? Ask your agency kung nai-report ka na sa SSS using SSS form R-1A? Sabihin mo nagtatanong ka lang kasi wala kang Date of Coverage dahil hindi ka naireport nang past employer mo. If possible, ask them to email you a copy of your R-1A. Halimbawa man hindi mo na makita yong old employer mo, itong start of contributions mo with your agency na ang magiging Date of Coverage mo. Pag meron ka nang posted contributions as a seafarer, enroll on SSS online para ma-track mo ang contributions mo.

    ReplyDelete
  24. Yong R-1A pala, form yan for employees, so puedeng one or more employees ang nakalista diyan, kung meron kang kasabay na irereport ng employer sa SSS.

    1. Nagregister ka ba as self-employed? Hindi valid kapag nagsimula kang magbayad as Voluntary. Dapat Employed, or Self-Employed or OFW or Non-working spouse. If you registered properly, ituloy mo lang magbayad. Malamang after 3 to 5 months of paying bago ka mabigyan ng DOC

  29. Hi Jutz, dapat mag-register ang asawa mo as OFW. Hindi puedeng magsimulang magbayad as Voluntary. Yong 2 monthly payments ire-request mo later on na i-apply na lang sa future payments after maka-register ang husband mo. Padalhan mo siya ng Personal record form. Or puede rin niyang I-download from the SSS website, I-fill-up niya then i-email niya sa SSS together with a scan of his IDs. Or baka merong malapit na SSS branch sa country where he is working para doon siya mag-register

    2. Sorry at hindi ako naka-reply agad this time.
      Good that you have that form already. Next time you pay, for example sa Bayad Center, check OFW. Yong Date of Coverage, ipo-post nila siguro after 3 to 5 payments. Based on many people commenting that they don't have yet their Date of Coverage, hindi agad napo-post ang Date of Coverage -- it takes time. Keep your receipts and his OFW registration form.

    1. Meron kang SSS registration form na signed and stamped by SSS? Na Self-employed yong na-check mo? at nasulatan nila ng monthly contribution mo? If yes, dapat puede ka nang magbayad. Ipakita mo sa kanila yang registration form mo... na it's approved na. At meron na nga silang isinulat na amount ng contribution mo.
