SSS extends filing period for claims
by Press release

The Social Security System has temporarily extended the filing periods of sickness notifications and sickness benefit claims for contingencies from March 1 to April 30.

SSS President and CEO Aurora C. Ignacio said the initiative is for its members and employers to avoid the penalties of late filing while there is the occurring threat of the coronavirus disease-2019 (Covid-19).

For sickness notifications of home confinement, under the temporary extension, employed members may submit their Sickness Notification Forms to their employers within 60 calendar days after the end of their confinement.

Their employers, on the other hand, are also given 60 calendar days from the receipt of the said forms to submit them to SSS.

Self-employed (SE), voluntary members (VM), and Overseas Filipino Worker (OFW) members are likewise given 60 calendar days after the end of their confinement to submit their applications to SSS.

Meanwhile, sickness benefit claims for home and hospital confinement with filing deadlines that fall within the said temporary extension period will not be reduced or denied.

Employers and SE/VM/OFW members may still file their sickness benefit claims until June 30.

Before the temporary extension, the filing of sickness notifications for employed members is within five calendar days after the start of their confinement, and another five calendar days is given to the employers to notify the sickness of their employees to SSS.

The same applies to SE/VM/OFW members on the submission of their applications to the SSS.

OFW members, however, are given a 30-day grace period to submit their respective applications given the nature and location of their employment overseas.
