Pssst! Ang mga sikreto sa pag-transact sa SSS.
Mahahanap sa SSS Codigo ng Bayan.

eOFW has been getting a lot of comments regarding the SSS website.  Unfortunately we are not connected in any way to SSS and therefore do not have authority to fix their website.  But for the benefit of our dear readers, we wrote to the President and CEO of SSS, Corazon de la Paz regarding the state of their website and here was our letter.

Dear President de la Paz:

I write on behalf of many SSS members who have left comments on our OFW blog, .
I write further as one of the pioneers in studying e-Government in the Philippines
See e-Government in the Philippines: Benchmarking Against Global Best Practices.

As a concerned citizen and member of SSS, I would personally like to stress the importance of your website in providing information to Filipinos here and abroad.

Unfortunately, the SSS website does not provided the information expected, nor the level of service expected from a well managed government institution.

This is evident from the many comments left at our eOFW website featuring SSS online service.

Below are excerpts of comments regarding the SSS website:

nagpunta ako ng SSS para sa Employee Statistics Information at ang sabi sa website daw mado-download and nung chineck ko nabwisit lang ako dahil ndi ko makuha ung kelangan ko at take note ang dami nyo na palang mga complaints sa ibang sites and forums and there’s no action on it kelan pa kayo kikilos?, pag lahat ng tao nagalit sa inyo?

The SSS members expect better service.
We hope eOFW has helped bring this to the attention of the SSS managers
who can make a commitment and a difference to serve their SSS members better.

I have copied key officials of the CICT and the website whom I believe can help in resolving problems of the SSS website.

All the best! Here’s to better online services from SSS for the benefit of the Filipino people!

Last September 2, 2008, we got a reply from SSS member relations stating:

Mr. Edwin S. Soriano

Dear Mr. Soriano:

This refers to your e-mail dated Aug. 18, 2008 regarding our website.

We thank you for bringing the matter to our attention and we apologize for the inconvenience because for the past few days, our system has been experiencing some technical problems. The system is undergoing enhancements to tighten its security features in order to ensure that no individual can access the account of another SSS member. Please try to access again.

If you still have problems in logging in, please send your communication directly to member_assistance[at] for assistance or contact tel. nos. 920-6401 local 6066, 6073 or 6082 for their information and appropriate action. Don’t forget to mention your SS number as reference.

Thank you for writing.

Very truly yours,

Department Head

To our dear readers, as Ms. dela Cruz has mentioned in her letter, if you have any problems logging in, the best one to contact would be SSS directly through member_assistance[at] or contact tel. nos. 920-6401 local 6066, 6073 or 6082.

Also, we’d like to remind everyone that for your own security, you should never divulge your SSS number to anyone not authorized by SSS much less post it on the internet. As such we have deleted comments that give out their SSS numbers on our articles. We don’t want all your hard earned contributions being stolen away by unscrupulous people. eOFW cannot be held responsible for the consequences of posting your SSS numbers on the comments section.

Thank you for reading our articles and we hope that in our own little way we have helped you, our kababayans, to be better informed.
