1 SSS Maternity reimbursement on Sun Aug 07, 2016 3:29 am


Arresto Menor
Good day Atty!

I would like to ask a few questions:

1. My employer did not advance my maternity benefit to me. I know this is not legal so I asked them but they did nothing. What can I do?

I have already given birth (4 year ago!) and I have still not received my benefit. I left the company on January 2013 and they would not accept my resigantion so I went AWOL. I kept following up regarding this but there are so many excuses from my employer that I don't understand why. Finally, I asked them if I should just file it directly from SSS and they told me that the reason they have not advanced it is because they have lost all my documents. I agthered all necessary documents (again) and then submitted this to SSS inclduing the L 501 form stating my employer did not advance any payment to me.
Now I found out that my claim has been denied. The reason being:


However, I did send this form otherwise they would not have received my claim since I am separated and this form is a requirement. I asked SSS about this and they said to wait for my documents in the mail because they will return it to me since my claim was denied. No additional info was provided.

This is causing so much stress in my lif that I don't know what to do anymore. Please provide some advice Atty because I am going out of my mind thinking about this for the last 4 years.
