Social Security Story

One of the things Ive been considering about being sick and just staying at home is MONEY of course! No work for three months means no income. Pulubi!

But since I dont have any choice then, I gave in. Right after I told our HR that Im sick, he instructed me to go home (at 2am!) but be back the day after to submit my duly accomplished SSS sickness form.

Ano daw? Ano yun?

Serisouly I was clueless. I dont know much about SSS aside from getting a pension at the time I reached the age of 60. Uhm wait, I am also aware of the disability benefits, like they pay you most when your thumb gets cut. haha

But with my case, I havent heard of any so I am really surprised that I'll be getting benefits from SSS!

** The sickness benefit is a daily cash allowance paid for the number of days a member is unable to work due to sickness or injury.

WOW! Eh magkano naman? (Wag nako demanding, pamblili lang ng daily gamots at uhm pambayad ng phone bills OK na OK na saken yun!)

** The amount of an employee's sickness benefit is computed as: the daily sickness allowance times the approved number of days. The daily sickness allowance is 90 per cent of the average daily salary credit.

Huh? At ano naman yang Average Daily Salary Credit?

** Search mo nalang. Cant explain it eh.. ;)

Well, what's more important is how can I claim this benefit?

** My company instructed me nothing else but to fill up the sickness form and that's it. Sila na bahala.

Hhhmmm, with this kind of setup, i have less worries na din. Im not asking for a big amount or so. Ansarap na din magstay sa bahay, uminom ng 9 tablets per day, at magmarathon ng Prison Break habang SSS ang nagpapasweldo sayo.

don't expect a big amount on's a percentage of your basic salary, minus the taxes and all other deductions.. and it would also depend on the number of contributions you had given them (sss).. I also had a week absent before, but i never filed for it anymore. The amount i will be getting, i thought, is not worth the trouble. hehehe

at least, nag-eenjoy ka right now..
nakakainggit naman yan...

Chyng said...

whew, thanks for that info!

well, i think there's a big difference kung three months ang pinag-uusapan na benefits dito. but again, im not expecting a big amount. actually im not expecting any dba?

Hello everyone!
I would like to burn a theme at this forum. There is such a thing, called HYIP, or High Yield Investment Program. It reminds of financial piramyde, but in rare cases one may happen to meet a company that really pays up to 2% daily not on invested money, but from real profits.

For several years , I earn money with the help of these programs.
I'm with no money problems now, but there are heights that must be conquered . I make 2G daily, and I started with funny 500 bucks.
Right now, I managed to catch a guaranteed variant to make a sharp rise . Visit my blog to get additional info. [url=]Online Investment Blog[/url]
