Check your SSS contribution Online. Yes, it is never too EARLY to think about retirement.

7/20/2011

When I was still a regular employee, saving for retirement was the last thing on my mind. Oh no, I think it didn't even crossed my mind. Well, what do you expect from a young mind. The Human Resources Department of my previous employers handled all SSS, BIR, and Philhealth transactions. But now, being one of the many Filipino oDesk contractors, it is quite different. Specifically working online where all transactions are done virtually. My clients abroad would not bother to think about my insurance or retirement funds since their businesses are not physically located in the Philippines. If I want to get the SSS, Philhealth and other insurance benefits that regular employees get, then I have to apply and pay for everything myself. That's the trade off in freelancing.
