New Schedule of SSS Contribution Table 2021

The Social Security System SSS releases the new schedule of Contribution which will take effect in January 2021. Aside from the increase in contribution rate, part of the changes will require all those whose salary brackets start at 20,250 and above to contribute to the SSS PESO Fund or the Mandatory Provident Fund.

SSS Circulars 2020-033-b; 034-b; 035-b

The SSS shall implement the NEW SCHEDULE OF REGULAR SOCIAL SECURITY, EMPLOYEES’ COMPENSATION (EC) AND MANDATORY PROVIDENT FUND CONTRIBUTIONS for Regular Employers & Employees, Self-Employed, Voluntary & Non-Working Spouse and Household Employers & Kasambahay as mandated under Republic Act No. 11199 or the Social Security Act of 2018, and detailed under SSS Circular Numbers 2020-033-b, 2020-034-b, 2020-035-b and 2020-036-b as of 22 December 2020.

What’s the difference between the Old Rate and the New SSS Rate?

The new contribution rate and new minimum and maximum Monthly Salary Credits (MSC) that will be implemented starting January 2021 are aimed at covering a larger percentage of the contributing members’ monthly incomes, so that they can look forward to larger benefit amounts and/or higher pension savings in the future. Refer to the table below.

  1. Guess, both SSS and Philhealth don’t use their heads and just increase contributions without taking into account the difficulties that happened in 2020. Guess, if they continue increasing the contributions and will just accumulate large sum of money for to be used by unscrupulous and greedy high ranking officials. Look at what happened in Philhealth? What happened to those corrupt officials that were investigated? NOTHING, just investigation. Where is the money stolen? When will this country change?

  2. The Table of New SSS Contribution Schedules
