Employers are to file online the sickness, maternity benefit reimbursement claims

The Social Security System (SSS) reminds covered employers that Sickness Benefit Reimbursement Applications (SBRAs) and Maternity Benefit Reimbursement Applications (MBRAs) can now be submitted online through the My.SSS Portal at www.sss.gov.ph through the E-Services tab of the employers.
The online submission of SBRA is mandatory for new or initial claims with approved sickness notifications, but not for those that need adjustment or are re-filed claims, which must be physically filed at the SSS branch.
The online submission of MBRA applies to new or initial claims and the following cases for adjustment: Member is qualified as Solo Parent; Correction of type of claim; SSS computation is higher than employer’s computation; Additional posted contributions will increase the amount of maternity benefit; Correction of approved number of days from 60 (normal delivery) or 78 (caesarian section delivery) days to 105 days; and Allocated leave credits not used due to separation from employment of the child’s father or qualified alternate caregiver.
Mandatory online filing will be implemented on September 1, 2021. However, the employer must choose only one method.
“As our partners in providing meaningful and timely social security benefits to employees, one of the legal obligations of employers under the Social Security Act of 2018 is to pay in advance the social security sickness and maternity benefits of qualified employees. Through these online facilities, they will also be assured that they will receive their corresponding reimbursements in a faster, safer, and more convenient way,” SSS President and CEO Aurora C. Ignacio said.
