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.
