SSS Maternity Benefit for Separated (from Employers) Members

During the early stages of my pregnancy, I thought of leaving my work in a BPO company to focus on my pregnancy but I was hindered by a misconception that I can only avail of the SSS Maternity benefit when I'm employed. However, upon reading some forums, I learned that every pregnant member, whether employed or not, is entitled to avail of the maternity benefit. So after careful consideration, I handed my resignation letter to the company's HR officer and a month after, I bade good bye to the company after almost nine years of love-hate relationship.

Separated members shouldn't have hard time processing their SSS Maternity benefit if the HR officer is well-informed regarding this matter or if their is enough information available online. In my case, the HR officer from my former company haven't experienced a case similar to mine and the SSS employee in-charge of receiving the documents is not clear with his instructions regarding the requirements, so it took me a little longer to finish processing. But I wouldn't rant about that since the purpose of this post is to share information to other members whose situation is similar to mine.


So here are the requirements/documents separated SSS members need to submit in order to be granted the SSS Maternity benefit:

  • Maternity notification form duly stamped and received by SSS (MAT 1)
  • Maternity Reimbursement Form
  • UMID or SSS biometrics ID card or two (2) other valid IDs, both with signature and at least one (1) with photo and date of birth
  • Medical certificate (original or certified true/machine copy)
  • Hospital abstract/admitting notes (original or certified true/machine copy)
  • Operating room records (original or certified true/machine copy)
  • Certification from last employer showing the effective date of separation from employment (issued by personnel who is also one of the signatories in the specimen signature card/L501)
  • Certification that no advance payment was granted (if confinement days applied for are within or prior to separation, issued by personnel who is also one of the signatories in the specimen signature card/L501)
  • Certified or authenticated copy of duly registered birth certificate
  • Machine copy of L501 (Specimen signature card)

I completed and submitted all the documents required on June 7, 2016 and the check was issued on June 10. Quezon City post office received the mail on June 16 and arrived at my local post office (Iloilo Province) on June 28. I only claimed the mail on July 5 as the postman in our municipality do not deliver to the address but instead wait for the addressee to claim the mail in the post office. According to the SSS employee I talked too, processing time takes a month to a month and a half but as you can see in my timeline, it only took three weeks which is pretty impressive for a government office. Change must have came! :D

SSS bank is with PNB so I encashed my check there. Note to those members whose last name have special characters like "Ñ", SSS system cannot recognize it so a "?" will appear on your check. The bank will not encash the check unless you have it corrected and signed by two SSS personnel who are authorized to do it.


By the way, SSS reimbursed me Php 41,600 because I gave birth to my son via Caesarian Section and my monthly contribution was Php 1760.

Hoping that you find this post useful and enable you to process your SSS Maternity benefit without so much hassle.

  1. Thanks for sharing, this is such a relief. I was terminated due to my pregnancy and health conditions and afraid that I will not get any benefits even If i'm religiously sending contributions to my sss. This really helps a lot.

  2. Can i still get mine? Like you i thought that i cannot get this benefit when im not employed...i got pregnant when ii had finished my contract with my last work...so i did not have the chance to file the mat1. My son now is already 8 years old can i still have the chance to use my maternity benefit? Thank you and God bless.

    1. Hi Petra!

      Thank you for your comment and sorry for the late reply. I'm not sure if you can still file a claim eight years after giving birth. I remember when I was processing my maternity benefit, the officer in-charged mentioned that I have one year (after giving birth) to process my claim. But you can ask them to be sure.

      Hope this help.

  3. Hi, just wanna clarify. Pwede na po ba akong magrequest ng
    -Certification of Separation
    -Non-Cash Advance Payment of Maternity Benefit from last employer
    -Copy of L501 (Specimen Signature Card) of employer duly received by SSS

    kahit hindi pa ako nanganganak? Expected Date of delivery ko po is on Oct 2, 2017.

    1. Yes, I requested for mine before my last day at work (a month before I give birth). However, I only requested for the L501 after giving birth because that's the only time I was told na needed yun. Hindi alam ng company HR na kailangan yun.

      Hope this helps! :)

    2. Hi maam cecille. Saan po ba makukuha ang L501? Sa employer po bah?

    3. Hi! Yes, you can get the L501 from the employer. Just borrow it and have it photocopied.

    1. Hi! If you are still employed, then you do not need all the documents listed above. This is only for SSS members who left their jobs before giving birth. Also, if you are employed, your company (particularly your HR officer) should have helped you in processing your maternity benefit. As far as I know, advance binibigay ng company ang maternity benefit sa mga employees who are about to give birth.

    Ask lang po for idea, i was gave birth to my youngest last feb 10 2009, hindi po ako employed that time because nag closed na ung company na pinapasukan ko before. and now i am employed for 8 years to my present employer. ma avail ko p b yung maternity leave ko?

    1. Hi! Are you pregnant now? If yes, then makaka-avail ka ng maternity leave when you give birth. But if you are referring to your pregnancy in 2009, then I am not sure if you can still claim eight years after. Were you a member na before you get pregnant?

    1. Hi Chel! Thank you for reading my post. SSS is kinda strict with the requirements especially that there is money involved. You really have to coordinate with your former company so you can avail your maternity benefit. Have you submitted your MAT1 already? It is important that you submit it as soon as you found out that you are pregnant, or at least before you give birth.

    Do I still need to submit the following documents if I am already 5mos separated from my employer from the date of my delivery and have already changed my status from employed to voluntary sss member?

    Certification from last employer showing the effective date of separation from employment (issued by personnel who is also one of the signatories in the specimen signature card/L501)
    Certification that no advance payment was granted (if confinement days applied for are within or prior to separation, issued by personnel who is also one of the signatories in the specimen signature card/L501)

    I resigned may2017, gave birth october 2017. I paid my contribution as an sss voluntary member prior to my delivery. I will really appreciate if you can answer my question.

Hihiramin mo lang naman and pa-photocopy then balik mo din agad. Sa employer ang specimen card. In my case, I got it from the HR officer of my previous company.

Why not ask a favor from someone from your previous company to have the documents mailed to you through LBC or other courier services para hindi ka na mahirapan. Send them money na lang to pay for the shipping charge.

    1. As long na complete mo na ang documents including ang birth certificate ng kid mo, pwede mo na sya i-process agad. Sa akin June ko na na-complete kasi wala akong time mag-process and besides CS ako so I waited na maka-recover ako physically. Then July ko na nai-claim kasi hindi ko agad na check sa post office ng town namin. June pa lang nandoon na pala sa post office but since hindi sila nagdedeliver house to house and akala ko after a month or two pa dadating so hindi ko kaagad na check. As mentioned in my article, three weeks lang ang processing time ng sa akin after ko ma-complete ang documents.

    1. It's okay lang naman kung sila ang nag process ng MAT 1 mo. Valid pa din yun. Same case with mine kasi ang company ang nag process ng MAT 1 ko then I resigned a month before ako nanganak. Just make sure na na-receive talaga ng SSS ang MAT 1 mo.

  46. Hi po. Ask ko lang. Nagresign po ako sa work ko nung last march this year. Need ko po ba palitan status ko as voluntary from employed para ma-avail yung maternity benefit? Tsaka po kelangan po ba talaga PSA yung birth certificate nung bata?Di po ba pwede yung local?
