Sickness
The sickness benefit is a daily cash allowance paid for the number of days a member is unable to work due to sickness or injury.

A member can be granted sickness benefit for a maximum of 120 days in one calendar year. Any unused portion of the allowable 120 days sickness benefit cannot be carried forward nor added to the total number of allowed compensable days for the following year.

The sickness benefit shall be paid for not more than 240 days on account of the same illness. If the sickness or injury still persists after 240 days, the claim will be considered a disability claim.


Maternity
The maternity benefit is a daily cash allowance granted to a female member who was unable to work due to childbirth or miscarriage


Disability
Adopting the World Health Organization's (WHO) definition, disability is any "restriction or lack (resulting from impairment) of ability to perform an activity in the manner or within the range considered normal for a human being".

The redesigned SSS Disability Benefit program adopts the International Classification of Diseases and Related Health Problems codes and takes into account the medical management of illnesses and injuries and their corresponding impairment ratings.


Retirement
The retirement benefit is a cash benefit either in monthly pension or lump sum paid to a member who can no longer work due to old age.


Death
It is a cash benefit either in monthly pension or lump sum paid to the beneficiaries of a deceased member.

The primary beneficiaries are the legitimate dependent spouse until the person remarries, and the member's dependent legitimate, legitimated, or legally adopted, and illegitimate children who are not yet 21 years old. In the absence of primary beneficiaries, the dependent parents shall be the secondary beneficiaries. In their absence, any other person designated by the member as beneficiary in the member's record.

It is a cash benefit given to whoever pays the burial expenses of the deceased member or pensioner.
