SSS ID is no longer for free
SSS has recently passed a proposition paper asking for a P500 fee for processing and printing of the SSS ID. No date has been set yet on when this will be implemented but this proposition is close to being approved.
To those who have not applied for the ID yet, I suggest you apply now that it is still for free.
FYI, the ID can be used for availing SSS benefits, i.e., Salary loan, sickness and Maternity benefits. Not to mention the unquestionable validity for those piece of plastic they call the SSS ID.
Refer to this post on how to get the ID.
Hi. As of this writing, August 14, 2008, I have received no confirmation or updates that the proposal is approved and implemented. Please disregard the title and assume it is still for free and let’s wait in the news because for sure this will be publicized when the proposition is approved. Thanks all.
