5 Registration Options For SSS Online Account Application

Registering for an SSS online account is difficult especially when you are directed to this page, which will ask you to select one of the registration options.

In this post, I will explain the 5 options in simple terms. Understanding each of the options will guide you to choose what is the right one for you.

How do the registration options work?

The options are information that is linked to your SSS records. To register, you must choose one of the choices. 
When the system receives your online member registration form, it will check the information you encoded from their archive.

If the information is not consistent or is not found on your SSS records, the system will reject your online application.


To avoid delay, choose the option that you think you have the correct information. Otherwise, you have to repeat the process.

What are the 5 options?

1. Bank Account Number / UMID ATM Account Number registered in SSS

You need to have your bank account number or UMID card registered as an ATM account number to use this option.

2. Mobile number registered in SSS

To use your mobile number to register, you must link this to your SSS records.

3. UMID card number

If you opt for UMID Card Number to register, you should have your UMID Card number ready.

4. Employer ID Number

Option Number 4 is for the employed members, whether in the formal or informal sector. So, if you are one, this is the best option for you.

5. Payment Reference Number (PRN) / Special Bank Receipt Number (SBR) / Payment Receipt Transaction Number (PRTN)

The PRN / SBR / PRTN is the number written on the topmost right portion of the receipt you get when paying for your contributions.

You may use Option Number 5 if you are a self-employed member.
