1 SSS Maternity Reimbursement on Tue Mar 12, 2013 4:42 am


Arresto Menor
Hi po, I would like to ask regarding my SSS maternity reimbursement.

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?

imo, this should be released by SSS. Make sure to file a follow up letter everytime you go there so you'll have a paper trail
