Created by Kamiworkforce Support Admin, Modified on Wed, 13 Mar at 4:11 PM by Nica Naraja

The Social Security System (SSS) is an insurance program mandated by the Philippine government to cover all income earners or workers in the private sector.

SSS Rule

  • Every month, Employed Members must pay their SSS contributions through the company they work for
  • SSS contributions are determined based on the employee's Range of Compensation for the month.  The range of Compensation should consider all employee's earnings
  • Here's the SSS contribution table for 2023 for your guidance

You may update SSS settings on Contribution type settings when there's an update on the rates

KAMI SSS Computation

Understand how KAMI computes SSS deduction on payroll batches!

If the employee is paid twice monthly, KAMI will automatically spread the SSS requirement across 2 periods as follows.

  • For any 1st semi-monthly period, or first payslip issued within each month:

  1. Monthly Salary Credit - will depend on the Wage floor and wage cap that was set under Contribution Types >SSS (EE) & (ER)
  2. ER and EE Share - contributions based on half of the estimated monthly contributions
  3. EC Share - will always be set to P10 as the minimum payment

  • For any 2nd semi-monthly period, or the second payslip issued within each month:

  1. Monthly Salary Credit - will be determined based on compensation in 1st-half plus compensation in 2nd-half
  2. ER and EE Share - contributions based on the full month's MSC calculated above, less any ER and EE already paid in 1st-half
  3. EC Share - based on full month MSC less any EC paid in 1st-half

Monthly contribution will be deducted fully if your company computes payroll once a month.
