Getting an SSS Verification Slip

Got a new job? Congratulations!

One of the most tiring thing to do when you land a job is securing the requirements asked by the company. That is the time you need to go to different government agencies to update your records, or to obtain some important documents, for example NBI clearance, BIR form 1905, work permit, SSS E-1, NSO-certified Birth Certificate, et cetera.

Proof of SSS Membership


If you have a previous job, a proof of SSS membership like a UMID (Unified Multi-Purpose ID), Employee Static Information, et cetera is one of the primary requirements to submit in order for the new employer to remit contributions to your account. If you are a newbie without an identification card yet, an E-1 form with a valid stamp will do.

Aside from those mentioned, some companies will require a supporting document like a verification slip, and that is what I am going to discuss in this post.

About SSS Verification Slip


When I luckily got a new job last year, the company asked for a copy of a verification slip. I have an identification card by that time which came from the SSS, but the HR department still requested the said document since social security number is not usually printed on a UMID.

I don't have any idea about the verification slip. At first, I thought it's the same with Employee Static Information, simply referred to by some as static info, however it is entirely a different piece of document.

It shows your social security number, complete name, as well as birthday. The other information that will be declared on the small form is your total contributions, date of the most recent posted premium, latest employer, and loan details (if there is).

Here's an example of an SSS verification slip (9 cm x 10 cm):

I masked some information on the form for privacy and security reasons.

Here's the back portion of the slip showing the date the form was requested.

Where and How to Get an SSS Verification Slip


OK, so here is the main idea of this article. I will explain where and how to get a verification slip if the company you have joined is requiring you to submit one.

Note: It is not necessary to go back to the SSS office or branch where you initially applied for an account number to get a verification slip.

I got the form above from a small SSS branch located on the second floor of Robinsons Otis in Paco, Manila. I got it right after I secured a clearance at the adjacent NBI office.

It took me only a few minutes, about five, to get one. Luckily, there was no queue that time. The lady who signed the form for me is very accommodating. At first, I have no idea whether they can provide me what I need. I just dropped by their office to inquire. I was surprised when she verified that they are indeed issuing verification slip.

She asked for one valid identification. What I presented to her is my Unified Multi-Purpose ID which is the new card that SSS is issuing instead of the old one. It is important to bring a copy of your social security number so that they will be able to locate your information easily.

A verification slip will be manually accomplished by a representative. He, or she will confirm the records on file while filling out the form.

The important part of the form is the stamp (see second photo above). Without it, it is an invalid document, or useless. Hence, make sure to have your verification slip stamped, and signed before leaving the counter.

Again, the whole process of getting a verification slip will only take a few minutes, but it might take longer depending on which branch you are going to secure one, and the queue as well.

I am not sure if all SSS offices nationwide are issuing verification slip. You may try calling first a branch near your place to verify. To get their phone number, go to the Branch Directory page.

If you are a Windows user, please use Internet Explorer in accessing the SSS website.
Local SSS offices are usually open from Mondays to Fridays (8AM to 5PM). There are no operations during Saturdays and Sundays unless there is a memorandum.

You may also post a query to their Official Facebook Page. They are active in answering inquiries there. Or, call their contact center at 920-6446 to 55 anytime from Mondays to Fridays except regular holidays and special non-working days.

According to the PDF file I have pulled up online, SSS call center operation is now 24/5 (weekdays only). See third reference below.

Verification slip is for free. There is no validity period. You may get another one anytime you want.
