What are SSS Maternity Benefits in Philippines

SSS maternity benefits are a set of benefits that you get if you are pregnant in the Philippines. These are rights, not privileges that you can demand from your employer based on the provisions of the Department of Labor and Employment.

The SSS Maternity Benefit (1) is the daily cash allowance of SSS female members upon instance of pregnancy who are unable to work due to:

  • childbirth
  • miscarriage
  • emergency termination of pregnancy, including stillbirth

The Expanded Maternity Leave of SSS is eligible to female members regardless of:

  • civil and employment status
  • child legitimacy
  • frequency of pregnancy

The following is a list of the main benefits which we’ll tell you more about:

✅ 105 days of paid leave

You are entitled to this leave regardless of the outcome of the pregnancy or the process. What it means is that you are entitled to 105 days of maternity leave if you had a caesarian section or natural. However, if you had a miscarriage, you can only avail up to 60 days of leave with pay.

✅ Full Pay

During your leave, you shall receive full pay. The company you work for must also provide you with other health care benefits during your pregnancy. In addition to this, the employer must also provide you with benefits during the period postpartum or after you give birth. This salary is based on your basic pay only, which means the employer will not pay the cost of allowance and all other remunerations outside of your basic pay.

✅ Right to Work

Once the leave is over, the employer should take you back as an employee. It is illegal for an employer to fire you simply because you got pregnant, or you were out during your maternity. As such, you have a guarantee that you have a job to support you and your baby after recovering from birth.

✅ Welcoming Environment for Pregnant Employees

One thing that people overlook when they get pregnant or after they give birth is that they have a right to a conducive environment. What it means is that the employer must give you access to a supportive environment as regards your pregnancy.

  • This may include providing ergonomic furniture, ensuring proper ventilation, and making accommodations for physical limitations.
  • Some examples are the availability of breastfeeding rooms or facilities to accommodate your pregnancy needs.

However, this may not be available in many Philippine companies, especially if you work in places like low-economic businesses such as “canteens.” In situations like that, what matters is that the employer is willing to accommodate your needs. For example, if you are not feeling well, it should be easy to ask for a leave of absence if you need to see your doctor.

Your employer must also be within reach to speak to you about your benefits and answer other questions you may have.

Granted benefits included in this law are:

  • Full pay, consisting not only of the SSS Maternity Benefits but also the salary differential paid by the employer.
  • An option to extend another 30 days duration but without pay for childbirth, providing the employer with due notice.
  • Female National Athletes are also eligible for the benefits.
  • Health care services courtesy of National Health Insurance, under its existing rules and regulations.
  • Unlimited childbirth claims, including miscarriage.
  • Maximum benefit claim of PHP 70,000 for both normal and cesarean delivery.

SSS maternity computation

SSS Maternity Computation in 2024

In this section, we will take a closer look at what you can earn if you avail of your maternity leave pay or how to compute SSS maternity benefit. The first step is to take a look at the SSS Contribution Table for 2024. There are five types:

  • Employer and Employee
  • Household Employer and Kasambahay
  • Land-based OFW
  • Self-Employed
  • Voluntary Member

How to Compute SSS Maternity Benefits for Employers

For this example, we will use the EMPLOYER and EMPLOYEE table. For the rest, you can visit the SSS website for an updated table.

Here is the table:

SSS contribution table 2024

The first column, Range of Compensation, refers to your monthly salary. If your range of compensation is ₱11,000 monthly for your basic pay, then you belong to the ₱10,750 – ₱11,249.99 range (highlighted in red).

How Much is the Maternity Benefit in SSS for 2024

Now, let us calculate the SSS maternity reimbursement for you. The first thing you need to understand is that there is a thing called MSC or Monthly Salary Credit, shown below:

How to compute maternity benefits in SSS

This MSC will help you determine your maximum SSS maternity benefit. So, in our example where your salary is ₱11,000 monthly, your MSC is 11,000 (see first table highlighted in red).

The formula for how to compute maternity benefits is this: 100% of your average daily salary credit X 105 days. Below you will find the steps on how to compute the SSS maternity benefit.

  • Step 1: From the date of birth, exclude the past 6 months of what we call the Semester of Contingency. This Semester of Contingency is six consecutive months BEFORE the birth.
  • Step 2: count 12 months from the month BEFORE the Semester of Contingency
  • Step 3: Look for the highest MSC within this period of 12 months.
  • Step 4: Add the SIX HIGHEST MSC to get the total monthly salary credit
  • Step 5: Divide this number by 180 days, and you will get the AVERAGE SAILY SALARY CREDIT.
  • Step 6: Multiply this number by 105; this is your SS Benefits

For this demonstration, we made a table that is easy to understand. Let us say that your monthly salary is ₱11,000.

Here is a table of events:

Now, we will count 12 months from December 2023. This will take us as far back as December 2022.

2023 Aug 11,000
2023 Sep 11,000
2023 Oct 11,000
2023 Nov 11,000

So, how to compute sss maternity benefits?

The highest MSC for these 12 months is 11,000. The SIX HIGHEST MSC for the last 12 months is also 11,000 each.
So, we will add 11,000 six times, and we get 66,000. After this, we divide 66,000 by 180 days, and we get 366.67.
Finally, we can now multiply 366.67 by 105 days and we get a final value of: ₱38,500.

SSS Maternity Benefits for Voluntary Members

The process of availing maternity benefits as a voluntary member of SSS is different from that of those members who have employers. As soon as you have a copy of your first ultrasound, you can notify SSS about your pregnancy.

You can apply for maternity benefits by filing a Maternity Notification Form (Mat1). This SSS Maternity leave form is available in the SSS branch and downloadable from the SSS official website.

Submit the following requirements to the SSS branch:

  • Filled out Mat1
  • Ultrasound
  • 2 valid IDs

After that, they will return to you your Mat1 with another form attached to it. This form contains the list of additional requirements you need when claiming the benefit. These are:

  • Bank Account Details (affiliated by SSS)
  • Certified True Copy of Operating Room Record (for Caesarean delivery)
  • Baby’s Birth Certificate (certified true copy)
  • Maternity Reimbursement Form (Mat2 for SSS maternity reimbursement computation)
  • Valid ID
  • Authorization letter (if a representative will submit the requirements).

The Mat2 can also be obtained from the SSS branch. You can fill this out and submit it together with the other additional requirements. Wait for SSS notification within 2-3 weeks.

How to Compute Maternity Benefits for Voluntary Members?

You might be asking, how much is the SSS maternity benefit for voluntary members?

The computation of the maternity benefits for voluntary members is similar to the above calculation. Get your monthly salary credits based on your paid monthly contribution first.

Then, get your average daily salary credit. And again, multiply your average daily salary credit by the approved number of days. The result is your total maternity benefit.

SSS Maternity Benefits: Requirements for Application

To apply for SSS Maternity Benefits in the Philippines, a female member must submit the following requirements:

  • Maternity Notification

Submitted through the My.SSS Portal on the SSS website, via the SSS Mobile App, or through the employer for employed members.

  • Maternity Benefit Application Form (MBA)

For employed members, this is submitted through the employer.
For voluntary, self-employed, and OFW members, this is submitted directly to SSS.

  • Proof of Pregnancy

This can include ultrasound reports, pregnancy test results, or a medical certificate from a doctor.

  • Child’s Birth Certificate

If the maternity benefit is claimed after childbirth, the birth certificate issued by the Philippine Statistics Authority (PSA) or a duly certified copy must be provided. For cases of miscarriage or emergency termination of pregnancy, a fetal death certificate and obstetrical history stating the number of pregnancies must be submitted.

Both IDs should have a photo and signature of the member, and at least one should show the member’s date of birth.
For employed members, it’s important to notify the employer of the pregnancy and the expected date of delivery as soon as possible. The employer is then responsible for notifying SSS.

It’s crucial to submit the Maternity Notification before the childbirth or miscarriage. The SSS allows the submission of notification before the delivery but has specific time frames depending on the type of delivery (normal or cesarean section) or in case of miscarriage.

How to Avail SSS Maternity Benefits

You can get your SSS Maternity benefit from your employer. However, this only applies if you are regularly employed. At the end of the day, everyone claims the SSS maternity reimbursement from the SSS itself.

So, how many days to claim maternity benefits? Ideally, you should file a maternity leave 30 days before your expected delivery date.

SSS maternity benefits requirements

How to File a Maternity Benefit Claim with SSS?

Now, let us discuss the maternity claim SSS process. If you have an employer, you must discuss this with them or the HR department. If not, you must go to your nearest SSS office to file for the maternity benefit.

Here are the SSS maternity benefits requirements and process on how to avail of SSS maternity benefits:

  1. Accomplished application form; this is the MATERNITY BENEFIT APPLICATION form
  2. Medical certificate from your obstetrician indicating your projected delivery
  3. Solo Parent ID if you are a solo parent (you will get an extra 15 days for your maternity leave)

Your HR will guide you through the entire process for maternity claim SSS. If you are not employed, you can go to SSS or ask somebody to do it for you.

After submitting your application form, the next thing to do is to wait. An SSS personnel will send you an email notifying you of your payment. The SSS will send the money to our nominated bank account.

If you are employed, the employer will pay you the money the same way they pay your salary. Then, it is the employer who will seek the disbursement for what they paid you in advance.

How to compute maternity benefits

The Expanded Maternity Leave Law

Recently, there have been talks about expanded maternity leave. Also called Republic Act No. 11210 (3), the government now allows 105 days for maternity leave instead of the traditional 60 days. This is the number we used in our calculation earlier.

The document for this is long and legal to read. To help you, we summarized the key points about this law below.

  • Women are entitled to Maternity Leave (ML) Benefits regardless of Civil Status
  • You can avail of ML even after you got recently terminated from work for as long as it has not been 15 days between your delivery or miscarriage and the date of your employment termination.
  • The minimum leave is 60 days and the maximum is 105 days
  • If you are not paying SSS, PhilHealth will cover your maternity leave
  • There is security of tenure for your employment if you avail of the maternity leave

Earlier, we covered the Paid SSS Maternity Leave and its calculation. The revised law for maternity leave also has a provision for Optional Maternity Leave Extension. This only means that instead of 60 days, you have the choice to expand it to 105 days.

Not all mothers want to spend their 105 days on leave. As you may know by now, some mothers want to get to work as fast as they can because if they come to work, they get paid more.

Think of our example earlier.

If your monthly salary is ₱11,000, and then you have an allowance of another ₱5,000, your total earnings per day (at a 22-word day period) is ₱727 per day.

If you multiply that by 105 days, you get ₱76,363. With the SSS pay, you only get ₱38,500 for 105 days. As you can see, you are earning more if you go to work. Because of this, some mothers opt to only get 60 days of maternity and then come back to work.

What are the Liability and Penalty of Employers

Your employers have legal liabilities if they do not comply with the law. Based on Section 18 of the new maternity law, the penalty is not less than ₱20,000 and not more than ₱200,000. In addition, an employer can go to jail for not less than six years but not more than 12 years.

It is either the judge penalizes the employer in cash or imprisonment, or worse, both. What if the people guilty of this are a corporation? In this case, it is the directors and managing heads who will be held accountable. In the worst-case scenario, the employer may not be able to renew his business license.

The employer’s responsibility is to pay the maternity leave benefit of the employee and allow her to take her leave. From here, the employer will have to go to the SSS office and process the reimbursement.

It is also the responsibility of the employer to ensure that the office has a safe provision for the employees who are pregnant or those who have birth.

What Are the PhilHealth Benefits for Maternity

Now that we have thoroughly discussed SSS maternity, let us move on and talk about PhilHealth maternity benefits.

What is the PhilHealth Maternity? By Universal Health Care Act (4), all women who are about to deliver their babies are entitled to coverage of social health insurance. The thing is that you have to be a member of PhilHealth to be able to avail of this program. In addition, you should be a regular contributor to qualify for the PhilHealth maternity benefit.

How to Qualify for PhilHealth Maternity Benefits?

The most important qualification is that you should be a member of PhilHealth and that you are an active contributor. You must meet these qualifications:

  • You should have paid at least three months of contributions before your availment and these three months shall have been made within the last six months before your delivery date
  • If you are not an employee, or you are a self-employed member, you must have paid at least 9 months of contributions in the last 12 months

Some OFWs are sponsored, and they are a special case. For as long as the date of the availment is within the validity period, they can enjoy the benefits of a PhilHealth Maternity Benefit. There are several packages or amounts you can get, and we will describe them below.

How to compute sss maternity benefit

🍼 Antenatal Care Package

In this package, you will be able to get services that include pre-natal check-ups, check-ups for detection of pregnancy problems, management of complications, nutrition for the mother, immunization, counseling, lifestyle counseling, family planning, and breastfeeding guidelines.

🍼 Maternity Care Package

This is the financial package that ranges between ₱6,500 and ₱8,000 if you have availed the PhilHealth, but only if you gave birth in accredited hospitals or clinics. The Maternity Care Package also referred to as MCP, also covers the antenatal period and normal delivery.

Mothers can also avail of this package during the post-partum period. The financial support of ₱6,500 is for accredited hospitals, while the benefit of ₱8,000 is for people who gave birth in maternity clinics or what we call birthing clinics.

🍼 Normal Spontaneous Delivery Package

This type of package refers to the common way of giving birth or the normal birth. Also called NSD, the mother could get a package worth ₱5,000 if the mother gave birth in a hospital. If the birth happened in a birthing home, the mother could get as much as ₱6,500.

🍼 Maternity Benefits for Other Types of Childbirth

Other types of childbirth, like Caesarian delivery, or those who have had complications, can still avail of the PhilHealth maternity benefit. The amount that you can get varies according to your condition.

🍼 Newborn Care Package

Finally, there is a package for the newborn baby of up to ₱1,750. This package includes newborn screening, tests for hearing, and other standard provisions for newborn babies.

🍼 Z Benefits for Premature and Small Newborns

There are several packages that mothers can get for this situation. The Z Benefit Package has the intent to capture preventive approaches for patients. Women who are pregnant for 24 to 36 weeks and are at risk can avail of this package.

Here are the benefits:

  • For the prevention of preterm birth, the package is between ₱600 and ₱4,000
  • For preterm and newborns, the package is between ₱35,000 and ₱135,000
  • For preterm and newborns between 32 weeks but less than 37 weeks, the package is between ₱24,000 and ₱71,000

You can only avail of the Z package if the baby is premature. As such, you can only get this if you deliver between 24 and 37 weeks. Also, the baby must be between 500 to 2,499 grams.

How to File PhilHealth Maternity Benefit

In this section, we will discuss  the PhilHealth Maternity Benefit requirements.

Accredited hospitals and surgical clinics have dedicated PhilHealth desks to assist with registration. It’s advisable to prepare all required documents beforehand to expedite the process and prevent delays upon discharge.

Employed members should ensure they have the following PhilHealth maternity requirements for 2023:

  • A valid ID or PhilHealth ID
  • A copy of your latest PhilHealth Member Data Record
  • PhilHealth CF1 (Claim Form) and CSF (Claim Signature Form), available through employers or their authorized representatives
  • Additionally, a certification of contribution or proof of payment may be requested. This information allows PhilHealth representatives to verify your records online and process your maternity benefit claim efficiently.

For members under 4Ps (Pantawid Pamilyang Pilipino Program) and indigent individuals, coordination with local government units or social welfare offices is necessary to obtain certification for PhilHealth enrollment or maternity benefit eligibility.

If married, PhilHealth will ask you to submit a copy of your marriage certificate. As a reminder, you must submit these documents for application to the PhilHealth office within 60 days after your discharge from the hospital.

How Much Can You Receive in PhilHealth?

You can receive anywhere from ₱600 to ₱71,000. It all depends on your condition.

Maternity Benefits in National Health Insurance

National Health Insurance offers maternity benefits that are health packages that expectant mothers can avail of to help them during their pregnancy. Every member that is about to give birth is immediately eligible for these benefits, regardless of number of contributions.

There are two maternity benefit packages: Maternity Care Package (MCP) and Expanded Newborn Care Package (NCP). The MCP has two packages, namely Antenatal Care Package and Normal Spontaneous Delivery Package. Members can avail of the MCP for prenatal checkups, normal delivery, and postpartum care. MCP coverage is Php 6,500 for accredited hospitals, and Php 8,000 for accredited birthing homes, lying-in or maternity clinics.

Meanwhile, the Expanded NCP has a coverage of Php 2,950 and covers essential newborn care, newborn screening tests, and newborn hearing tests.

To avail of National Health Insurance maternity benefits, you must prepare and secure your member’s data record (MDR),  Claim Form (CF1, if employed), CSF form (if employed), proof of premium payments, National Health Insurance ID and valid IDs, and  CF2 from your healthcare provider.

GSIS maternity Benefits

Unfortunately, unlike the SSS, the GSIS does not offer maternity benefits to its members.

However, government agencies are mandated to grant maternity benefit claims to its employees as stipulated in the RA 11210. That means women government employees can still avail of the 105-day maternity leave.

While the GSIS does not offer maternity benefits, members can still avail of its retirement and life insurance benefits that can help first-time parents and established families alike. Alternatively, they can apply for maternity benefits from National Health Insurance, which we will show you in the next section below.
