To ensure proper implementation of Real-Time Posting of Contributions (RTPC) system, selected branches of the Social Security System (SSS) nationwide are open on all Saturdays of February. Members and employers can pay their contributions on the said days through the Automated Tellering System (ATS).
According to SSS President and Chief Executive Officer Emmanuel F. Dooc, in addition to the Saturday operations, 78 SSS branches also extended daily operations for two hours for the whole month of February, extending their closing time from 5 pm to 7 pm.
“Since the RTPC system is new and some members and employers are not yet accustomed to it, we are extending our ATS facility to accept contribution payments and at the same time, provide assistance in using the RTPC system,” said Dooc.

These branches are Cubao, Diliman, Eastwood, Fairview, San Francisco Del Monte, Valenzuela, Antipolo, Mandaluyong, Marikina, Pasig-Pioneer, San Juan, Legarda, Pasay-Roxas Blvd., Welcome, Alabang, Makati-Gil Puyat and Taguig.
