I worked for a private company starting Jan 2010 to May 2010. I understand that the company was still beginning so the sss contributions were still on the process. they are still registering the company and it was ok for me.
At the start, I wasnt aware that I was already pregnant at that time, my boss learned of it and it was ok. I was with them for 5 months. On May 15, 2010, I had an argument with my boss that resulted in my suspension. He asked me to surrender everything tha twas issued to me, cp, laptop. I surrendered everything. After that, I was not allowed to go back and terminated me. I didn't file for any legal action because of my pregnancy.
During that time, I checked SSS and I was elgible for the Maternity benefit. After I gave birth, I completed the requirements and hoping that I will be getting the benefit that was due to me.
SSS asked me to provide a Certification of Separation from the company where I was terminated. It turned out that on May, they included and submitted my name on their list of employees to SSS.It was also the month when they terminated me. SSS was asking me to provide a Certification telling that no advance payment was made by that company to me. I asked my boss to provide me with this 2 documents but as per my boss, he cannot give me that documents DAHIL MAGKAKAPROBLEMA DAW SYA SA SSS, dhil nde nga nya hinulugan yung isang buwan(May) na nakalista ako dun. nde nmn daw nya ko kinaltasan. The fact that he wasnt able to deduct it from me because I wasnt able to get my May 30 salary because I was "suspended". My officemate which submitted the list gave me a letter instead and informed SSS that I wasnt supposed to be included in the list. "ERRONEOUS INCLUSION" as what they called it. She signed it. SSS didnt accept that and denied my maternity claim. SSS told me that I will be receiving a letter from them but until now, 4 months have passed since my claim, I still have not received any letter.
I know that this is not a huge amount but with the situation Im in right now, I really need it.
I am hoping you can help me on this. I am so confused and getting hopeless.
I find it so unfair that I cant even claim my own money because of some lousy company.
I would really appreciate your help on this.
Thank you very much in advance.
