SSS Loan Restructuring Program or SSS Loan Condonation Extended Until April 1!

A few months back, I went to the nearest SSS office to inquire about my mother-in-law’s existing SSS loan which she has not paid for a few years already. 

As far as she remembered, her loan amount was Php 15,000 back in year 2000 and it’s now ballooned to more than Php 50,000 including the principal amount, interest, and penalty.

I asked the SSS officer if they’re offering SSS Condonation program, but he said that it wasn’t available yet when I inquired.

Good news!

  • Calamity Loan

  • Salary Loan
  • Emergency Loan
  • Educational Loan (old)

SSS LOAN RESTRUCTURING PROGRAM: LOAN AMOUNT & PAYMENT

The principal and interests of all past due short-term loans of the member-borrower shall be consolidated into one Restructured Loan (RL1) payable either in full or instalment payment.

Full Payment – If member-borrower wants to pay his loan in full, he must settle it within 30 days from the approval of his SSS Loan Restructuring application.

Instalment payment – If member-borrower finds it more convenient to pay in an instalment basis, the loan is payable in equal monthly amortization over applicable term based on RL1 range as shown in the table below.

SSS-Loan-Restructuring-Program-2016-2017

  • If the RL1 range amount is less than Php 2,000, preferred term is FULL PAYMENT.
  • However, the member-borrower may elect his preferred payment term but not to exceed 5 years.

SSS LOAN RESTRUCTURING PROGRAM: INTEREST & PENALTY

Interest – 3% Rate per Annum

For Installment term, RL1 shall be subject to interest rate of 3% per annum. It is computed on a diminishing principal balance over the applicable payment term.

Penalty – 0.5% per Month

A penalty of 0.5% per month shall be charged against the amortization due for every month unpaid during the approved term.

CONDITIONAL CONDONATION & INTEREST RATE AFTER TERM EXPIRY

  • Penalties shall be condoned after full payment of RL1 within its approved term.
  • The balance of RL1 should be ZERO at the end of the term.
  • If not zero or if there’s still remaining balance, the unpaid principal of RL1 and the proportionate balance of condonable penalty shall become part of a new principal under

Restructured Loan 2 (RL2) and shall be charged a 10% interest per annum until fully paid.

  • The unpaid interests and penalties of RL1 shall likewise be transferred to RL2.

DUE DATES & MANNER OF PAYMENT

  • Monthly instalment shall be due for payment every 10th day of the month following the amortization month.
  • Amortization shall start on the month immediately following the approval date of the SSS Loan Restructuring Program.

If for example the Restructured Loan was approved this month, which is MAY, the first amortization month is JUNE, and the first instalment amortization is due on JULY 10.

  • SSS member-borrower may pay through any SSS branch with tellering facilities or authorized collection agent of the SSS.

OTHER CONDITIONS FOR SSS LOAN RESTRUCTURING PROGRAM

  • SSS member-borrower cannot avail of other SSS short-term loan programs while the restructured loan is existing/outstanding.
  • SSS member-borrower may avail of the SSS short-term loan programs after 6 months from the date of full payment of the Restructured Loan.
  • SSS member-borrower cannot avail of any future SSS condonation or SSS loan restructuring programs once this restructuring application is approved.
  • SSS member-borrower shall notify the nearest SSS branch his updated contact information by accomplishing the Member Data Change Request or SS Form E4 during the term of the restructured loan.
  • In case of member-borrower’s retirement, death, or total disability, the total loan obligation or any unpaid amount of the loan as well as the interest and penalty thereon if any, shall be deducted from the final benefits.

    Hello po. Bayad na po ako ng loan restructuring ko last 3 yrs ago. But when i verified my loan is still intact. I have pròof of payments. Sss denied, and said technically unpaid. Horrible. Tinamad na akong bayaran at ayusin po uli last time na nagverified ako.parang niloloko nila ang member. Kinuhaan lang ako ng pera buwan buwan.
