How Employers Can Update Data Records at SSS

Not all employees remain with one employer until they retire. Some of them resign and find work under another employer, others get dismissed from their jobs or the company ceases to operate.

The same is true with the status of the employer, as an SSS member, it is its duty to provide SSS with accurate information. So if there are changes in its previously entered information such as phone number, operating address or name of company, a notification to SSS must be made at once.

Using the form SS Form R-8 or Employer Data Change Request, employer details of change and effectivity date should appear in the form.
