First, I was seven weeks pregnant and had a miscarriage last February 1, 2013, unfortunately, i failed to inform my employer about my pregnancy.I know that in order to avail the SSS maternity benefits, I should inform my employer and file MAT 1 within 60 days starting from the date of conception.However, I had a miscarriage and I was on my 49th day of pregnancy.My question is...Am I still qualified for the SSS maternity benefit?
Second, I went to SSS and filed a maternity reimbursement, they accepted my documents such as medical certificate,biopsy and curettage certificate without the presence of MAT 1. and they give me the acknowledgment stub.My second question is...Is there a chance that after a couple of months my Maternity claim became not qualified? I still did not get my check.
Third, I thought that maternity claim will be advanced by the employer.But our HR told me that I should wait for the SSS check to arrived as they will not advance my benefit.
Fourth, how long will it take for the check to be released?
