When is the start of salary deduction of SSS loan?

Since many have been trying to ask us regarding details on when is the actual start date of salary deduction after receiving the cheque / check for the SSS salary loan, we decided to post it here via a short discussion. According to the official Social Security System (SSS) website, the first deduction from their salaries shall start on the second month following the date of loan.

  • For employed member-borrower (including participants of the fast track program), the first deduction from their salaries shall start on the second month following the date of loan
  • All remittances shall be made on or before the 10th day following the applicable month of deduction to the SSS or to any of its authorized banks.
  • The employer shall be responsible for the collection and remittance to the SSS of the amortization(s) due on the member-borrower’s salary loan through payroll deduction.
  • With respect to late remittance penalties and transfer of new job, – The employee is obliged to report to the new employer his obligations with SSS and shall allow the new employer to deduct from his salary the corresponding amortizations due, plus any penalty for late remittance of amortizations.

For those asking about matters on loanable amount and how does the SSS determine the exact cash fund that an active SSS member can expect to get upon application of a SSS salary loan, the details are as follows below.

How much is the loanable amount?

  1. A one-month salary loan is equivalent to the average of the member’s latest 12 monthly credits posted.
  2. A two-month salary loan is equivalent to twice the average of the member’s latest 12 monthly salary credits posted (rounded to the next higher monthly salary credit), but not to exceed P24,000.

If you are self-employed or Voluntary Paying Member:

For self-employed or voluntary paying member-borrowers, the first amortization shall be paid to the SSS or any of its authorized banks on or before the 10th day of the third month following the date of loan.
