Philippine Social Security System Funeral Claim Procedures

Updated on November 4, 2017

The Philippine Social Security System


In 1957 the Philippine government created an agency to provide retirement and health benefits for all members. The SSS is a social insurance program for private sector wage earners in the Philippines. Retirement, sickness, maternity, partial disability, pension, and death are some of the many benefits available to SSS members.

In addition, there are so-called "calamity loans" which can be availed by members affected by natural disasters like flooding, earthquakes, and the like. Salary loans may also be filed and approved, depending on the monthly salary of the employee who is a member of SSS.

Filing for Death and Funeral Claims

Death claims may be filed by the primary or secondary beneficiary of the deceased employee-member. There are only four types of individuals authorized to receive claims from the deceased member: Living parents if the deceased is single, all of his/her living siblings, their legal spouse, beneficiary children of legal age, and guardians of children below 21 years old.

It is important to understand that funeral claims are different from death claims. Funeral claims are given to the person who shouldered the funeral expenses regardless of his/her relationship to the SSS member. As of this moment, funeral claims amount to Php20,000. each. The documents you need to file this claim are as follows:

  1. Death Certificate of member duly registered with Local Civil Registry Office.
  2. Official receipt/contract (if not yet buried) issued by the funeral parlor or certificate of ownership for prepaid memorial plan.
  3. Filer's Affidavit (Sinumpaang Salaysay), to be accomplished by the person actually filing the claim.
  4. Waiver, if the claimant is not the one named in the official receipt. Include authentic identification (with signature) of the one waiving the benefit.
  5. New Residence Certificate of the filer (Cedula).
  6. Any valid I.D. of the filer and SSS Digitized ID of deceased member.

List of accepted ID's

  • Company ID
  • Philippine Passport
  • GSIS Card
  • ID Card issued by professional associations recognized by PRC
  • Marriage Contract
  • NBI Clearance
  • Police Clearance
  • Postal ID Card
  • School ID
  • Senior Citizen Card
  • Tax Identification Card/Affidavit
  • Voter’s Identification Card/Affidavit

Completing the Claim

Upon completion of the above mention documents, proceed to the nearest SSS branch in your area. SSS personnel will give you claim stub for the check. Wait for a few weeks to months before the release of the check, you may do phone call to follow up on your claim so make sure you have their phone number. This way you don't have to wake up early and fall in line just to follow-up. They will text you if your check is ready for pick up.

If you receive the text, bring valid ID, and death certificate of the member, and the claim stub that SSS has given you when you submitted the documents for your claims.

It is best if you put the filer's name to the receipt from the funeral parlor. Document stated in number four will not be necessary. Less hassle, less documents needed, faster claim. It is also better if you file the claim before the internment. If funeral parlor service charge is less than Php20,000 you must keep all receipts of the burial expenses for food that was serve on the wake.

Do you think being an sss member is a big help?

      Hi! Hope you can give me po details. My father died 8 years ago and he was an sss member. We already claimed the burial and currently receiving our monthly pension but I just heard from my mother that one of our siblings has not been included since we started receiving our monthly pension. The problem is, when my mother was processing the death benefits the said sibling was late registered at NSO so they instructed her to pass affidavits then other documents which has been fulfilled by my mother but suddenly they asked her to submit payment of tax in which this said sibling has been included. Because of confusions and other problems at that time during the processing and she doesn't even know where she can get it because my father was only a taxi driver who doesn't have tax returns. Is there still a possible way to solve this problem ma’am? Hope you can help me po. Thank you!

      @debbie YES you can get the burial, present an official receipt coming from the funeral parlor, put the name who will process the claim on the OR from the servicing funeral parlor. If the amount of the service stated on the OR(official receipt) is less than 20,000 you need to include other receipt like those receipt from supermarket which items include what was use on his wake(coffee, sugar, candies, receipt from catering services if you have one). The thing is the expenses should be at least 20,000 or above. His children is not entitled to a pension since he only have 11 contributions. You may also want to ask the sss personnel once you process the burial.

      Hello, Please advise if my sister's monthly retirement pension is transferable to my brother-in-law. My brother-in-law and my sister were married in 1983, (33yrs.) They have no children. My sister passed away on May 17, 2016, in Sydney, Australia and was buried in Sydney on May 25, 2016. My sister was a retiree pensioner with a date of retirement on July 21, 2002. She was paid her monthly pension up to June 2016. I wish to ascertain my brother-in-law's entitlement before filing the Death Benefit Claim. It is costly to have the required forms and documentations authenticated at the Philippine Consulate. My brother-in-law is on Disability Support Pension. I defrayed the funeral expenses and I understand I have to file that separately. Thank you for your kind and early reply on this matter.

      Good Day!

      My father-in-law died last July 29, 2016. My mother-in-law had already received the burial/funeral claims. But what their problem is, they cannot process the pension of my mother-in-law because we later found out thru the NSO that my father-in-law has no registration of birth. My husband called the LCR of Cagayan Valley if they have a record of my father-in law's birth certificate but my husband was told that they don't have anymore files of births on year 1940's. My father-in-law was born year 1945. Will the NSO certificate of no birth registration be accepted at SSS for the pension of my mother-in-law?

      Pls. help because Cagayan valley is too far because my father-in-law's family now residing in Taguig City for a very long time. Hope you could enlighten us by answering our queries. Thank you very much!

      October 21, 2014


      Hello po!

      Sana po masagot nyo po ang aking mga katanungan:

      Isa po akong worker sa pribadong sector at patuloy pa rin sa pagtratrabaho sa kasalukuyan at ako ay 51 years old na ngaun at alam kung umabot na ang aking contributions para qualified to receive a pension huli kong silip is 256 contributions.

      Ako po ay walang asawa wala ng mga magulang at may 5 kapatid. Isa sa aking kapatid at ang kanyang isang anak ang ginawa kong beneficiaries

      Sometime around late April of this year nagka heart attack ako, nakakuha naman ako ng sickness benefit, sa ngayon habang tinatype ko itong sulat na to, medyo hindi na naman maganda ang health ko at natatakot na baka umulit huwag naman sana, sa katunayan nagpaaalam ako ngayon habang tinitipa ko ito sa aking pinagtrabahoan na pumunta sa aking cardiologist dahit sa kirot ng aking puso.

      Mga katanungan:

      1. Dahil sa aking takot na baka may masamang mangyayari sa akin dahil sa kondisyon ko, ako po ay malayo sa aking mga kamag-anak , maari po kaya akong mag file ng disability retirement at ano po ba ang aking makukuha kung sakali, sa opinyon nyo po ba isang paborabling hakbang ito para sa akin?, may maeenjoy kaya akong benefits. Kung sa pagtratrabaho kayangkaya ko pa at I enjoy my work, stresswise manageable naman siya para sa akin. Ang kinatakutan ko lng kung makaramdam ako ng hindi maganda, gusto ko talaga umabot pa sa retirement age, kaso nga traydor daw kasi ang sakit sa puso at seguro kelangan ko na talaga magpahinga muna dahil nagtrabaho ako simula nung pagkagraduate ko ng college hanggang ngayon.

      2. Anong kaibahan ng disability retirement at permanent retirement, magkano ang aking makukuha at may lump sum bang makukuha pag disability retirement?

      3. Kung sakali huwag naman sana muna ngayon gusto ko sanang ilista ang pagprocess step by step at ibigay sa aking kapatid para walang sagabal at kalitohan ang mangyayari sa isang taong namatay, anong unang gagawin anong susunod kelan dapat gawin those kind of things.

      4. May hangganan ba ang disability retirement benefits? or permanent benefits?

      5. Pag namatay ang member during disability retirement may makukuha pa rin po bang death at burial benefits? may makukuha pa rin ba ang beneficiaries at hanggang kailan?

      Maraming salamat po.

      God bless us all

      1-2 weeks makuha na ung check.. mas maganda kung kinuha mo ung telephone number ng branch kung saan ka nagfile

      @yamz villarubia

      since wala sya kahit 1 contribution. WALA PO SYANG MAKUKUHA

      @edilberto llaneta

      kung member ng sss mother OO. pero kung pensioner lang sya at yung tatay mo ang member.. hindi..

      @laura alcazar

      after makuha ung funeral claim the sss officer will tell you kung ano pa orther benefits na entitled kayo.. unahin muna ung funeral claim-(death certificate, official receipt, at Id ng SSS member need dalhin pagpunta ng sss office)

      @dennis contreras


      kung MARRIED



      ung burial PWEDE MONG LAKARIN, BASTA SA IYO MO IPAPANGALAN YUNG RESIBO GALING SA FUNERAL PARLOR. death cert at ung plastic id ng tatay mo lang need dalhin.. of course valid id mo..

      since nag pension na tatay mo, transferable ung pension sa mother mo. HINDI KA PDENG MAGLAKAD NG DEATH CLAIMS(PENSION) ang NANAY MO LANG


      kung sa states sya namatay. may additional requirements na hihingin sau ang sss.. mas mainam na sadyain mo ung pinakamalapit na sss office sa inyo. death cert at iD ng sss member at iD mo muna dalhin mo

      @chris and nelly

      itetext ka naman pag ready for pick up na ung check mo.. and mas mainam na kunin mo ujng telephone number ng sss office kungg san ka nag file ng claim mo..

      Sorry for your lost, if your 8 year old son is using you late husband's surname and he was properly and legally acknowledge by him HE SURE WILL BE CONSIDERED AS A BENEFICIARY even if your son is not declared as one.

      PROVIDED, the father signed the birth certificate of the child duly registered at NSO. And you as the mother given the fact that he is a minor will be in charge of the claim for your kid. You may file a claim. Present the birth certificate of the child and IF YOU ARE NOT LEGALLY SEPARATED/ANNULED the marriage contract will be needed.

      IF for instance, may kinakasama na at may anak pa sa kinakasama ung husband mo, entitled sila(anak sa kinakasama at ung anak sa iyo) sa claim(lump sum/pension) . The key there is if the dead member acknowledge the relationship to the claimant or the beneficiary in papers, meaning with proper documentation.

      Hi, my husband just died. We were married and have a 1 eight years old son but we got separated for over 8 years now. My question is, if my husband did not wrote in my son's name as a beneficiary, would my son still be qualified as one?

      @rose dones

      unfortunately since you said you stop your contribution, you cannot file a death loan. dapat kasi active member ka ng sss or paying ka.. or you have at least 6 months contributions prior(bago) sa araw na nagfile ka.. halimbawa mag file ka this august 2014 dapat from august 2013-july2014 may 6 months ka na hulog..

      @mr august

      yung bc, kahit ung no record sa NSO pde present yun. BASTA UNG BC NYA EH KASAMA SA NAWASH OUT nung binomba ang records sa city hall. May certain years na alam ng sss kung kelan nawala records lahat ng bc.. sa tito ko ganun, 1946 at yung isa mas una pa jan sa year na yan. WALANG RECORD SA NSO.. tinanggap ung nso copy na no record..

      Regarding sa OR, need po nila un talaga. pero kung susubukan nyong ipasa contract baka mapakiusapan nyo sss officer na kausap.


      yung pension naipapasa lang sa ANAK NA MENOR DE EDAD O SA LEGAL WIFE.. kung legally separated na sila, at wala ng menor de edad na anak. WALA NG MAKUKUHA AFTER NG BURIAL.FUNERAL CLAIM(P20,000)

      @mr. August

      Sir, ung resibo po ang hanap nila. Ang kontrata kasi tinatanggap lang nila pag HINDI PA BAYAD ung service. pero kung bayad na resibo talaga hinihingi.. Pde naman kayo humingi ng kopya ng or sa funeral servicing parlor-TELL THEM GAGAMITIN SA SSS CLAIM, bibigyan nila kayo ng kopya for sure.

      But you may also try presenting the contract alone. bring NSO copy ng BC ng tatay mo at ORIGINAL NA DEATH CERTIFICATE NG tatay mo

      @ms gdgp

      yung funeral claim(P20,000) isa lang po authorized maglakad-KUNG SINO NAGABAYAD NG SERBISYO ng punerarya. MUCH BETTER ung may oras maglakad ng papeles ipangalan ung OFFICIAL RECEIPT from the funeral parlor.

      yung death claim naman, 4 na forms-tig issa kayong magkakapatid . kung buhay pa ung nanay nyo at legally married sila ng tatay mo pang lima sya. 5 claimants, SA ISANG TAO LANG IPAPANGALAN cheke..

      quote ko lang ha "Please be inform that funeral claim is different from death claim. Funeral claim is given to the person who shouldered the funeral expenses regardless of his/her relationship to the SSS member. As of this moment, funeral claim is amounting to Php20,000"

      FUNERAL claim unang nilalakad, un yung 20,000 pesos fixed amount yun. TIP: kung yung service ng funeral parlor is less than 20,000 (halimbawa ang nakuha nyong serbisyo eh around 18k or below-basta hindi umabot ng 20,000-may 2 options kayo para paabutin ng 20k ung gastos 1st)ask nyo ung funeral parlor na ilagay sa OFFICIAL RECEIPT na iisyu sa inyo na 20,000(twenty thousand pesos) ung binayaran nyo. maiintindihan naman nila un, sabihin nyo lang na may sss kayo na i claim, 2nd)kung di pumayag si funeral parlor, LAHAT NG RESIBO NA GINASTOS SA LAMAY, pagpapalibing, pagbukas ng nitso, pagpapasemento, lapida, i file nyo sama nyo sa isusubmit sa sss office. NEED KASI SA SSS NA YUNG GASTOS EH 20,000 PATAAS.. if I WILL REPEAT IF THE FUNERAL SERVICE' CHARGE AMOUNT IS EQUIVALENT/MORE THAN P20,000 kahit wala ng resibo ng gastos sa lamay OKAY NA YUN.. OR NA LANG FROM THE SERVICING PARLOR..

      ung death claims po, na claim after ma release ung check na P20,000. pwedeng LUMP SUM or PENSION depende sa number of contributions ng member. at sa choice ng claimant.

      kung ung FUNERA CLAIM po ung tinutukoy nyo, wala namang expiration ung claim nun. sabihin nyo lang na ngayon nyo lang nalaman na may sss sya. after funeral claim(P20,000). KUNG ANG HULOG NG TATAY MO EH more than a year 12 months or more, may makukuha pa syang lump sum. ANG PDE LANG MAG CLAIM NGAYON, EH KAYONG MAGKAKAPATID-since NAG ASAWA na ung mother mo s you claim.




      you can go to the nearest sss office to check kung ano sss number ng mother mo. present lang ng one valid id ng moter mo at one valid id ng magveverify

      yes you can still file a burial claim. as long as makumpleto mo ung requirements. kung sino nakapangalan sa resibo ng servicing funeral parlor. yun ang dapat maglakad ng claim. Kung hindi naman sya available para lakarin yung claim. Kailangan ng authorization letter plus VALID id ng name na nakalagay sa OFFICIAL receipt ng punerarya na nagsasabing pinahihintulutan nyang maglakad ang sinuman na itatalaga nya na lumakad ng burial claim. AGAIN, MAS MAHABA ANG WAITING TIME, BUT STILL YOU CAN FILE A CLAIM( which is more important kesa wala).

      @jun typically when a pensioner dies the pension ceases. In some cases the pension is transferred to the spouse. In other cases the pensoin is terminated. I believe the time the marriage was in affect has a lot to do with the decision.If the couple were married for twenty or thirty years then the pension is transferred. If the marriage is recent then it would most likely be terminated unless the spouse can show cause why the pension should be continued. Another factor na kino consider is kung may minor pa na anak ung deceased member.

      But that may take a while, because as part of the process they have to check on the servicing funeral parlor, and check where your father was buried. Approximately 2- 3 weeks. If you are to file the claim, DON'T FORGET to get their landline number for you to be able to follow up on your claim over the phone. That way you need not to go their office for your follow ups. PATIENCE IS A VIRTUE.
