What are the SSS Contribution Rates for OFWs?


OFWs are divided into two categories: land-based and sea-based. The contribution rates for land-based OFWs are as follows:

  • For those earning a monthly salary of PHP 10,000 or less, the contribution rate is 14% of the regular monthly salary credit. For example, your monthly salary credit is PHP 9,500, so in this case, your contribution amount would be PHP 1,330 (₱9500 x 14%).
  • For those earning a monthly salary of more than PHP 20,000, the contribution rate is 14% of the total monthly salary credit (Regular SS + Worker’s Investment and Savings Program amount). For example, if your Regular Social Security is PHP 20,000 and your Worker’s Investment and Savings Program (WISP) is PHP 1,000, then your contribution amount would be PHP 2,940 (₱21,000 x 14%).

These rates are subject to change on a yearly basis. OFWs are advised to check our website regularly for the most up-to-date information on contribution rates.

I’m an OFW. Can my family members in the Philippines contribute to My Behalf?

Assigning a representative back home to contribute to OFWs is a viable option for securing their social security benefits.

Family members in the Philippines can contribute on behalf of OFWs, provided that the necessary payment details are given and posted contributions are regularly monitored to ensure remittance to the SSS.

This option is particularly useful for OFWs who do not have the time or capacity to pay their contributions themselves.

There are two main payment options for family members who wish to contribute on behalf of OFWs: overseas remittance or paying at any SSS-accredited collecting partner in the Philippines.

To ensure that contributions are properly credited to the OFW’s account, the family member must provide supporting documents, such as the OFW’s PRN (Payment Reference Number) and other payment details.

It is also important for the OFW to regularly monitor their posted contributions to ensure that they are properly remitted to the SSS.

By taking these steps, OFWs can ensure that they are able to secure their social security benefits even while working abroad. Also, this makes them eligible for pension benefits, for which you can calculate the amount with the SSS Pension Calculator.

As for your surprise with the amount you paid, there may have been changes or adjustments in the SSS contribution rates or rules that affected the amount. It would be best to verify this with the SSS directly or through their online channels.

    My mother is based in Dubai. The last time she made SSS Contribution was Dec 2017. Since then, she’s no longer able to do her contribution. What would be the next steps if I will be the one filing the contributions from now on?

    1. To file your mother’s SSS contributions, you need to check her account status, settle any unpaid contributions or penalties, choose a payment mode and period, prepare necessary documents, and submit them to the SSS office or authorized payment center. Following these steps will ensure that her contributions are updated and avoid any future problems with her benefits.

I want to pay it so i can update my payment this 2023.

    Thank you and waiting for your feedback.

    1. Yes, you can still pay your SSS backlog from March 2022 to December 2022 even if you are no longer employed by the company that previously paid for your contributions. You can make these payments as a voluntary member through any SSS branch or authorized payment center.

    My husband last monthly contribution was 2014, nothing follows due to travel ban and difficulty of returning back for work in Libya. Now, he is working in Papua New Guinea and he wants to continue to pay his monthly contributions. Pls. Advise what to do.

      It’s also important to note that your husband may have unpaid contributions from 2014 to the present, which can affect his entitlement to SSS benefits. He may also need to settle any unpaid contributions and penalties before he can resume his membership.
