SSS ID: How to Apply and Get an SSS ID?

Applying for and getting an SSS ID ( Social Security System ID Card) can be easy and at the same time very tiring and frustrating. Some people get lucky why applying for an SSS ID while others are not.

Here’s a short tutorial on how to apply for and get an SSS ID:

1. Download the E-6 form from the SSS website. Click on Forms at the left navigation pane. Then select E-6 from the list. Or click here for the direct link: E6 Form. Print then fill up the information needed.

2. Click on Employment History at the left panel. You will be shown a list of all your employers, past and present. Copy the employer number of your company into the form.

3. Click SSS ID Clearance at the left panel. If the note says “Member Qualified for an SSS ID Card”, then you are cleared and eligible to apply for the ID. Print this page. Just click the File menu of the browser, then Print.

4. Go to the SSS Office. Tell the guard you already have an SSS number, the E-6 form and the ID Clearance and that you are applying for the ID. He should give you a priority for your picture to be taken.

5. Get in line at the SSS ID section and get your picture taken. Present two IDs from the list stated at the 2nd page of the E-6 form. If you have your company ID and an ATM card with your complete name, then you should be fine.

6. You’re done. Just wait for the SSS ID to be mailed at your home or office address. Or you can get the SSS ID at the SSS Main Office.

    nakakahiya naman talaga…
    bakit nyo pinapacheck ang contributions nyo and status ng id nyo dito?
    pinost lang naman dito kung pano mag apply for an SSS ID…
    kung makautos kayo agad na icheck status ng ID nyo, icheck ang contributions…as if naman na sa SSS kayo nag tatanong!
    or mga tamad mag basa at umintindi ng nakapost?
    kaya wala unlad bansa natin eh…
    tatamad nyo…
    iaasa sa iba gusto malaman…

    went my way to sss pasay taft office,just few minutes ago, hoping and praying I can aquire my SSS ID for the longest time swept. but to my surprise,the ones currently being processed are those applications for year 2009. and mine will roughly be mailed feb/march next year (applied sept 2009).another flaw of SSS needing utmost attention. peace out!
