The SSS provides a funeral benefit of up to PHP 20,000 to help cover the funeral expenses of the deceased member. This benefit is available to the person who paid for the funeral expenses. However, it should be provided that they have receipts and other documents as proof of payment. You will have to submit the documents to SSS for the claim.
Make sure that the funeral home that you availed service from is legal and can provide official receipts.

The SSS also provides a death benefit to the primary beneficiaries of the deceased member. The amount of the benefit depends on the member’s number of contributions and the average monthly salary credit. Nonetheless, it can be up to PHP 1,000,000.
The SSS provides a monthly pension to the primary beneficiaries of a deceased member who has paid at least 36 monthly contributions. The amount of the pension depends on the member’s number of contributions and average monthly salary credit. The monthly pension can be paid for up to five years or for the lifetime of the beneficiary.
In addition, the SSS also provides a dependent’s pension to the children of a deceased member who are below 21 years old, unmarried, and not gainfully employed. The dependent’s pension is also available to children who are over 21 years old but are physically or mentally handicapped.
The dependent’s pension can provide much-needed financial support for the children of a deceased member, especially if they are still in school or have special needs. It’s important to note that the dependent’s pension is only available to eligible children, and it’s important to check with the SSS to confirm eligibility.

Lump Sum Amount
If there are no primary beneficiaries or if the primary beneficiaries are not qualified, a lump sum amount will be given to the secondary beneficiaries of the deceased member. The amount of the lump sum benefit depends on the number of contributions paid by the member.
In conclusion, it’s important to be aware of the SSS death benefits available to you in the event of the loss of a loved one.
