Pay SSS Contributions Online for OFWs, Self-employed, Voluntary et al

Ever wanted to remit your monthly SSS contributions without going to an SSS branch or bank nearest you? You can now do this online via BancNet, if you happen to have an account with the following banks:

Allied Bank, Asie United Bank (AUB), Chinabank, Chinatrust, Citibank, Citystate Savings Bank, Eastwestbank, ExportBank, Metrobank, Postal Bank, PSBank, RCBC, RCBC Savings Bank, Security Bank, Standard Chartered, Sterling Bank of Asia

To pay your monthly SSS Remittance, just follow these steps:

1. Open your browser and go to Bancnet Online Website
2. Select your bank (a new window will pop up)
3. Click I Agree (If you've already read the terms and conditions)
4. Click Payment on the left navigation pane
5. On the Biller/Institution dropdown menu, select your category from the list:

SSS Farmers and Fishermen
SSS Contribution - OFW
SSS Contribution - Self-Employed
SSS Contribution - Voluntary
SSS Non-Working Spouse

6. Enter your SSS Number (follow this format: SSS Number + month and year of payment period e.g. XXXXXXXXXXmmyyyy), ATM Card Number and Amount to be paid on their respective fields, select your Account type (Savings or Checking Account)

7. Key in your ATM Pin (or mPIN, depending on your bank) using the onscreen keypad (note the use of scrambled numbers there)

8. Hit the Submit button.

9. You may print or capture a screenshot of the resulting transaction receipt for record-keeping and reference.


this is a free transaction. Not all banks have online banking facility simply because they need an eBanking license from the BSP. No transaction fees required, no hassles, waiting time and long queues at the bank. :P


  1. Hey! Yesterday, I realized I missed our SSS payments and then today, I read Salve's blog about SSS payments. I pay our contribution quarterly through the remittance center here and I've completely forgotten that I need to pay at least our October contribution before 10th of October.

    Anyway, too bad, I don't have an account in any of the banks listed above. Last July, I went to SSS to apply for Auto Debit Arrangement (ADA) which is possible for BPI account holders but since my account is in Manila, SSS in Bataan cannot process my application. I am surprised that despite all the computerization thing, their operations are not centralized yet! And when you choose ADA, you can pay for own contribution only and not your spouse's. So my husband and I have to set-up separate ADA. How tedious! Ako, suko na. Sobrang hirap makipag-transact sa bangko, sa government institution lalo na pag OFW ka.

  2. nina, dapat you opened a bancnet account and pay them both there, problem naman yung pagpondo dun. weird talaga yung mga BPI na yan pag regional. sa metrobank meron pa sila regional fee pag over the counter pero kung may online ka libre :(

  3. It's been years since I paid my SSS.. thinking of paying as an OFW contributor

  4. Hi,

    I have a metrobank account and I intend to pay SSS online. However I do not get the exact step by step as illustrated above.

    1. I went to (Bancnet Online Website)
    2. I selected Metrobank
    3. There is no pop up for I AGREE. All it did was direct me to metrobank's omepage

    At this point I have no other option but to logon. So I logon.

    4. There is no PAYMENT menu inside

    Can somebody help me what did I do wrong?



  5. Jim, with metrobank i think you need to enroll the SSS number for you to pay. This is because the BancNet Online website only acted as a portal to Metrobank's proprietary internet banking site. This is different from Chinabank Online where you can also pay SSS contributions as well as use your Chinabank ATM card to pay at BancNet Online

  6. I hope BDO will also accept monthly SSS contributions online soon.

  7. ....what banks can yu advise for sss ada and online payments? Wala kasi ang bdo kaya mag-open ako sa iba...please suggest some banks which has an efficient online banking....thanks

  8. anonymous, i already listed them all there, those using members of bancnet using the facility

  9. how about sss loan monthly amortization is it also possible to pay online through the bank liste? please help me with this matter?

  10. anonymous, inquire with your own bank. even banks not listed here can arrange one for you sort of a an auto-debit arrangement for SSS payments...if not, look for another bank ;P
