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.

  9. the online given instruction to get an sss id is absolutely useless over here in batangas city sss office. i managed to follow the procedure completely but it was totally annoying as soon as i get to the sss office and approached the guard in duty. he didn’t even know about the online sss membership registration, more over the id clearance. i spoke to the personel in the information desk after but he did not entertain the print out copy of the id clearance that i managed to acquire via online registration. all she gave me was just a piece of paper labeled with 242, meaning that i need to fall in line and wait for that number to called. so it only showed that the id clearance that we can get from the internet is not valid. it was justified when this personel instructed me to fall in line with the numerous people over me waiting as well. the personel told that it was to validate the application in order to get to the next step(picture capturing) wherein i need to fall in line again.it was time consuming really while you’re standing there waiting.at last the generalist shouted ‘242’. it was my turn. the generalist just grabbed my E6 form and he asked for 2 valid identification documents. while he was processing my application i started to have a short chat with him and asked about the sss online registration. this time i thought he knew what i’m inquiring about. he stated that the id clearance that i got through online was not valid. from there all proved that it was not fine. i thought that i don’t need to wait for that very long with the crowd only to process my sss id application. believe it or not, i took 6 hours to complete the process. i don’t know whose mistake was that. i don’t know really. is it the given instruction in this website that is not applicable to all sss offices or is it the sss office in batangas city that was not implementing the correct alternative procedure upon applying for sss id. thank you.

    OMG! people here are sharing SSS #? Its much better if you will visit SSS website and create an account because if you want to apply an SSS id you need to make sure that ur # is not temporary. You can also go to the main office at quezon to apply for an id and have it updated. Be careful when providing SSS # online. hayyyzzzzzz

  29. chris says:

    PEOPLE, PLEASE. If you think posting your SSS numbers here would get the SSS employees and/or the Government to speed up processing of your IDs, niloloko nyo lang ang sarili nyo.

    Contact the SSS branch/office directly. You are opening yourselves up to identity theft.

    i was so disappointed in seeing all the comments and queries regarding all the application in getting an SSS ID card bcause somebody applied 2 years ago and up to now there is no result about his ID, because I applied only early last year. I don’t know why this is all happening in your good office. i don’t like to post my sss number either due to some fraudulent reason that you should understand, will just go there
