II. The Text SS (SMS) and Messaging Inquiry System
Everybody had a cellphone unit these days. This makes it easier for all Pinoys to make an inquiry regarding all or any member records. Via the text SSS inquiry system, any member may get or know latest social security information from loan status, monthly contributions made, loan payments and more.
Step by Step Procedures
How to do this: Type in your mobile phone or gadget (iPod / iPad / iPhone / tablet) SSS REG 0123456789 06/05/70 then send it to 2600. If you are successful in your registration, you will receive a txt back with your PIN number which you can now use in all transactions.
In case you didn't know it yet, there is this currently and recently provided system for inquiring about your SSS records and membership status. It's called the IVRS or Interactive Voice Response System.
In this type of SSS contribution inquiry, you will have to make a call to their official hotline numbers which I have listed below for your information. It is a computerized voice instruction procedure where certain pre-made questions will be asked to the member similar to that of the PLDT hotline service 171 and 172 for their broadband and landline service.
III. IVRS Hotlines:
As an alternative, you may also call 917-777 through Globelines nationwide toll-free number.
IV. Using the Call Center to Make Inquiry
Social Security System now had a call center which you can call to avoid the hassled of getting hanged up by customer service reps in a designated branch when inquiring about your SSS contribution and other related static information.
Although both have a similar function, a call center agent will definitely answer your concern and attend to you ASAP as well as give you the proper instruction on how to go over with your problem or concern.
Call Center Hotline: 920-6446 to 55
Remember that this hotline is a 24-hour call center service open only during weekdays and working hours.
As a member, it is strongly suggested to exercise patience and proper conduct in conversing with the customer service agent all the time.
Just like you and me, they are humans and unlike office reps, they are definitely there to serve good useful information regarding any member concern and inquiry. If you've gone used to being neglected by calling a nearby branch to ask about your SSS contribution, here, the people would be glad to serve their purpose.
V. Pakisuyo System
With the growth of the service to Filipinos by the Philippine government and the private and public sector, one of the unpopular ways to go over with not having time to make an inquiry or get a document or information you need and make a request and go through the different processes involved in it, Pinoys found a way to make business and earn from serving these types of needs.
Introducing www.pakisuyo.com. A business catering to those who do not have time to work out acquiring a document or information like DFA passport application, NBI clearance, Visa, SSS static information, NSO birth certificate, CENOMAR, school documents, LTO license, LTO motor vehicle inspection report, LTFRB docs, SSS contribution and the like. This particular service offers taking care of all sorts of needs that you can make pakisyo with including simple payments you need to make to the nearest bayad center outlets.
Although the word pakisuyo has become a popular word for immediate relatives, there is now a service Filipinos can rely on when it comes to similar types of needs to opt in for pakisuyo. Otherwise, you can always issue a letter of authority duly notarized and have someone, usually a nearest relative take care of your needs and processing.
