You can now remit contributions to SSS using your PayMaya account or any credit, debit, and prepaid card

06:11 PM December 23, 2019

Now you can skip the lines and easily remit your membership contributions to the Social Security System (SSS) through the official SSS mobile app, using only your mobile number linked to your PayMaya account as well as via any credit, debit, and prepaid card. This convenience was made possible through SSS’s recent accreditation of PayMaya as a payment platform.

If you are self-employed or a voluntary member who wants to make sure that your SSS contributions are up to date, all you need to do is to download the newly launched SSS mobile app from the Google Play Store or the Apple App Store to easily make contribution payments anytime, anywhere.

“We are very glad that we were able to add another accredited collection partner that will ensure fast, convenient, and secure ways of remitting the hard-earned money of our members for their future contingencies and retirement options to the pension fund.”–Aurora C. Ignacio, SSS President and CEO.

Filipinos who do not have a bank account or a credit card can easily sign up for a PayMaya account by downloading and registering in the PayMaya app. Once done, they can also use the Pay with PayMaya option to pay for their contribution payments using the SSS mobile app.

And since the SSS app now accepts all VISA, Mastercard, and JCB credit, debit, and prepaid card payments through the PayMaya Checkout payment gateway, even overseas Filipino workers (OFWs) abroad can ensure that their membership contribution payments are up to date even if they are not physically present in the country.


“Using digital technology in delivering social services to all Filipinos is a big leap for SSS and we are proud that they have tapped us in this initiative. Making public service more accessible to all Filipinos through digital financial services is in line with our thrust at PayMaya to push for digital and financial inclusion,” said PayMaya Founder and CEO Orlando B. Vea.

Initially available for payment via the app are contributions from self-employed, voluntary, and OFWs. For the next phase of the partnership, employer’s contributions (regular and household) and salary loan payments will also be made available soon. Card and mobile wallet payments will also be possible at other online channels and physical branch offices of SSS using PayMaya’s unique integrated digital payments platform.

The SSS is part of the growing list of government partners enabled by PayMaya with its universal payment platforms that enable all kinds of enterprises and institutions to accept digital payments through their online, mobile, and branch channels, helping them deliver more efficient public services to every Filipino.

These initiatives are also in line with President Rodrigo Duterte’s mandate to improve ease of doing business and streamline government services by opening up avenues for online transactions, following the enactment of the Anti-Red Tape Act in 2019.

PayMaya is the only financial technology company in the Philippines offering integrated consumer and merchant payment solutions. It is the first to give millions of Filipinos an e-wallet that allows cashless transactions at any time of the day, anywhere in the world, and from any device. Through PayMaya Enterprise, it enables merchants to accept all payment options, including credit, debit, prepaid cards and mobile wallets. Meanwhile, Smart Padala by PayMaya, the country’s largest domestic remittance network with over 27,000 partner agents, is providing millions of underserved Filipinos access to digital financial services.
