  1. there are a lot of SSS members na after registering or getting their SSS Online Account ID, kapag nag-log in ang makukuha mo na response sa SSS Online is "username blocked" (and i'm one of the 'faceless beings') na hindi maka-access sa aking SSS acount. I however managed to 'un-block' it kasi i personally went to SSS Diliman office noon ako ay nagbakasyon. So kung sino man ang may concern about un-blocking and registering their online accounts, please send your concern to this e-mail address: member_assistance@sss.gov.ph at ibigay lang ang inyong sss no., full name and date of birth and one of the assistants there will oblige to answer your queries, or tawagan ang kanilang tel. no. (+ 63 2) 920-6401 local 6201.

  2. Hi Sir,

    Thanks for that information.Actually medyo marami pa talaga dapat improve sa service na to ng SSS. Dati nga laging down yung service na yon.Then nung nag inquire ako sabi ng reply ng SSS under system maintenance daw kasi nag upgrade yung IT ng server. So far, ngayon ok naman.Basta reminder lang wag hulaan yung password ng 3 beses.Kasi yung iba ganun ang nangyayari kaya na ba-block yung account.

  3. in my case Angelo, after na matanggap ko yun approval sa aking online account, at once i logged-in (and i am certain i did enter the correct password), but really did not went through, the answer was "blocked username", that was grossed, kasi from that time on hindi ko talaga na-access ang aking account (2008), and the message shown was: to un-block the username, i have to call their hotline numbers (i am nuts to call overseas and they will put you on hold for several minutes and respond to you later without getting the proper answer we wanted), so i waited and waited and waited 'till i went for vacation, kaya ayun, i personally went there and solved my concern ^_^

  4. thanks angelo for this very informative and helpfull blog.
