Is it OK to Stop my SSS Contribution If I Completed the 120 Months?



Often times this question comes from voluntary members of Social Security System (SSS). Those who are self-employed and some Overseas Filipino Workers (OFWs) who paid their own membership without a share from their companies. According to SSS, when a member completes a 120-month contribution, that is equivalent to 10 years, the member is entitled to retirement pension at the age of 60. Even members who did not complete or contributed less than 120 months are also entitled to lump sum pension.

The answer is no and this is not advisable. A member who contributed at least 120 months is qualified for a pension at 60 years old but ceasing your SSS contribution means the following;  1. You cannot avail of sickness and maternity benefit. A member should have at least three contributions in a year before the semester of sickness, maternity or miscarriage.  2.
