How to Pay Your SSS Contribution Via Gcash

There’s a good reason why paying via Gcash is a good option. The service fee when paying via the SSS payment channel is PHP 98.00 versus Gcash which is only PHP 8.00.

Setting Up Your GCash Account

First, if you don’t have a GCash account, you’ll need to create one. There’s a helpful guide here to walk you through the process. Once you have your GCash account set up, you’re ready to go!

Using the SSS Portal

1. Log In: Go to the SSS Member Portal and sign in to your account. If you don’t have an account yet, you can sign up here.

3. Create PRN: Hover over “Contributions” and select “Generate PRN” from the dropdown. You’ll be redirected to a form.
