With the things that are going on with the world right now due to COVID-19, it has affected how we live, how we work, how we engage with other people and a lot more. The world at large has had to renegotiate the common norms of social activity with distancing measures that are increasing daily. And while we still wanted to be on top of our monthly responsibilities including our bills payment like SSS contribution, most of the establishments, offices and payment centers are closed. Life of all Cebuanos was changed on the midnight of Friday, 27th March when Cebu Governor Gwendolyn Garcia announced a month-long Enhanced Community Quarantine (ECQ) in an attempt to flatten the curve of COVID-19 cases.
While people working in essential industries such as healthcare and food production were exempted, for the majority of us we found ourselves in a situation where we weren’t allowed to leave our homes unless to stock essential supplies such as food and medicine.
We’ve put together a list of online apps where you can pay your SSS contribution online.
GCash is a digital wallet that allows you to put money in it and use for multiple cashless transactions such as paying bills, sending money, buying load, savings and even for online shopping. The cash being digital makes it easy to do transactions with it, empowering the user to leverage it to do work without as much effort.
Aside from paying your utility bills, you can also pay your SSS contribution. With the GCash App, SSS Contributions are actually posted real time or just few minutes after you paid your contribution. It's very easy, free of charge and hassle free!
Below is the easy guide on how to pay your SSS contribution online using GCash.
Once done, you’ll receive an SMS and email notification that the transaction has been completed. The payment will be instantly posted to your account. You can confirm it by logging in to your online SSS account.
PayMaya is pretty much similar with GCash. To make SSS contribution payments using your PayMaya account or your payment card, simply do the following steps:
1. Log in to the SSS mobile app using your My.SSS account.
2. At the homepage, tap on the “Generate PRN” or Payment Reference Number button, fill in all the necessary information for your contribution payment, and verify your PRN request details.
3. Once the PRN has been generated, click on the Pay button and choose the payment method of your choice. Click the “Pay with PayMaya” button in the payment page. Log in using the mobile number and password associated with your PayMaya account.
You will receive a One-Time PIN (OTP) that you need to enter to verify the transaction. Once done, click “Confirm Payment” to finish the transaction.
4. Once payment is successful, the contribution payment will be reflected in the “My Contributions” section of the app.

You can pay your SSS contribution by logging in to your SSS account online. All you have to do is to generate PRN from there it will promt a "PAY" button beside the PRN of the said payment transaction.
Currently, SSS is partnered with Moneygment App. Once you click on the "PAY" it will prompt you login to Moneygment App. If you are new to this app, you are required to register to complete your payment. A service charge of ₱10 for the convenience fee.
Moneygment is a mobile app that caters payment services to Filipinos who are self-employed, individuals, business enterprices or OFWs. This app allows you to pay your Pag-IBIG, PhilHealth and SSS contributions, Bills, loans and insurance and investments, File and pay your taxes and even allows you to send money to your friends and loveones.
When you do the transaction directly to the app and not from SSS portal, the app charges ₱25 per transaction for SSS voluntary payments and ₱50 for OFW. The good thing is, if you will pay quarterly or annually for your SSS Contribution, you will be charged with one transaction fee only.
The transaction is processed within 2 banking days from receipt of payment and will be reflected on your SSS account within 5 days.
The nice thing about this app is that it will allow you to save your information just once, like your government numbers so that you don't need to find where you put this information every time you will pay your government contributions. Another reason why you should love this app is that it can issue SSS PRN inside the app itself as it is already link with the SSS system, saving you time and hassle of contacting SSS or falling in line in any SSS branch.
