The Social Security System (SSS) regrets to inform its members of the delay in the release of checks for salary loan, death, disability, retirement, sickness and maternity claims submitted starting May 22, 2018 onwards due to check printer malfunction.

The necessary repairs are already underway and the SSS aims to have the checks ready for delivery to PhilPost starting June 8. SSS is coordinating with PhilPost for special handling of these checks for faster delivery.

SSS is also notifying some 106,950 affected members and pensioners of the delay via text message thru the number they registered with SSS. For other inquiries, members may call phone numbers 920-6446 to 55 or email

This is the first time that SSS had a check printer malfunction.  The agency apologizes for the inconvenience.
