Why is PRN Required when Paying SSS Contributions? 

The SSS established the PRN-based system for the real-time posting of SSS contribution payments.

This means that once your payment is successful, you can now view your SSS contributions instantly.

This system will address delays in the posting of contribution payments that result in ineligibility to SSS benefits and loans and delays in the processing of claims.

If you don’t have your PRN yet, just follow the steps above to get your PRN, then present it when paying your contributions.

Watch this video tutorial on How to Generate SSS PRN Online:

And if you wish to see if your contribution has already been posted, just login to your SSS online account.

To do that, follow the instructions here:

  1. My bad that already file prn.
    And late enrolling my account to flexifund.
    Can i still use my prn FOR PAYING my contribution even if i change the amount that i already filled in SOA?

  2. Is PRN is a one time reference number that will be used every payment of SSS contribution?

  3. eduard marzan says

    i could not even register. after clicking the submit button the page displays the error message” WEB PAGE BLOCKED”
    i tried logging in using my old user id and password but it says “Invalid user ID/ Password”
    i recommend you should fix bugs in your online platform first, and troubleshoot your system for errors before implementing this new directive which compels voluntary members to use PRN for payment of their contributions.
    this new system it is very frustrating as it complicates the paying process for those who have no access to mobile phones, computers or internet
