Up to when am I allowed to file my SSS sickness benefit claim?



If you were hospitalized, you should file your SSS sickness benefit claim within 1 year from the date you were discharged from the hospital.

If you were treated at home, you should file within 1 year from the start of your illness.

But of course, file your claim as soon as you have completed your documents. In case there are questions about your documents, it will be easier to get back to your doctor or the hospital where you were confined.

For employees:
Notify your employer within 5 days
