Effect of SSS Salary Loan on Maternity Benefit

Question:

Can I claim my SSS maternity benefit even if I have an outstanding salary loan?

Answer:

Yes, you can file your claim for your SSS maternity benefit.  Your claim will be processed as long as you are qualified and your documents are complete.

However, if your salary loan is delinquent, your total loan balance will be deducted from your SSS maternity benefit. If your delinquent loan balance is bigger than your maternity benefit, then your cheque amount will be zero.  If this happens, console yourself by saying "At least, I have paid off a big portion of my salary loan."

If your loan is current and your payments are on time, you will get your SSS maternity benefit in full, without deductions.
