(UPDATED 04/04/2022) Some SSS members have expressed concern about how to easily transact in an SSS branch because people must queue for a specific time to obtain a priority number and have their transactions completed the following day if successful.

As a result, this guide is designed to help SSS members easily schedule an online appointment if the nearest branch does not use a coding system for their transactions.

SSS, or Social Security System, is a government-run social insurance program in the Philippines that provides coverage to workers in the private, professional, and informal sectors. It was created by Republic Act No. 1161, also known as the Social Security Act of 1954.
