How to Pay SSS Contribution via Auto-Debit Arrangement (ADA)

My sister-in-law sent me a private message on FB asking me if I have already created a video tutorial or a blog on how to pay SSS contribution via Auto-Debit Arrangement or ADA.

I told her that I haven’t created a content yet about that topic, but I promised to research on it and write about it soon.

Btw, my S-I-L is an OFW in Jeddah and she pays her SSS contribution quarterly by depositing it to her friend’s account here in the Philippines, who then pays her SSS contribution in one of the SSS branches in their province.

What a hassle, right?

Not only is it a hassle for my S-I-L, who needs to go the remittance center to deposit money to her friend’s account, but also a hassle for her friend, who has to withdraw the remittance and then go to SSS branch for her payment. (Not to mention the long queues when making payments at the SSS branch).

While doing my research, I saw this article written by Ms. Susie Bugante, the vice president for public affairs and special events of the Social Security System.

In the article, she talks about auto-debit arrangement (ADA) program, how it’s done and why it’s a better option than going to the SSS branch each month or quarterly to pay for SSS contribution.

“With this program, you save time, money and effort. Also, your payments are immediately posted. You no longer have to go to the bank or the SSS every month, fill out so many forms and queue for hours.”

  1. I went to bdo and they said they dont allow sss auto debit arrangement.

    • We also went to BDO Waltermart Banlic Branch and the officer there didn’t seem to know of SSS ADA for household employer. She contacted several personnel from main branch but they too are not aware of this. Seems like BDO is not oriented on ADA for SSS payments.
