One of my plans this year is to continue paying my SSS contribution. I will be paying as voluntary member since Iâ€™m not employed. I have yet to visit the nearest SSS office in our area to know more about the things I have to secure in order to continue my SSS contribution. My sister in law suggested that I pay the same amount when I was employed to receive a bigger retirement benefit. Paying a higher contribution fee (which I have yet to determine) is also beneficial when I apply for a loan. The higher contribution I pay the bigger loan I can avail. Iâ€™m also reviving my Philhealth contribution. This is important for me because we donâ€™t have health insurance to depend on when emergency arises. I will also check if I can still afford to pay a monthly Pag-ibig contribution.
