SS and Philihealth are two important insurances for a certain Filipino need to have. It is important because these insurance will cater the safety of Filipinos' future happening just like sickness, matenity, and many others. But there are lot of business who are paying these insurance for these insurances for their workers. Is it really possible? Are some business really allowed not to pay?

When it comes to SS and philhealth it is mandatory for employers to deduct and remit it to the government. Not unless the employee is not yet regularized by their employee. But once your employment status has regularized already they should deduct a portion from your salary and the employer are obliged to pay and remit your ss and philhealth.

But there are establishment not following that one. For them not follow it, they made no regularization of employee and just open the contract even employee reaches for many years.

everyone is requested to pay both SS and philhealth. philhealth requires a minimum of 100 per month and everyone can join under the category of voluntary payment. all businesses, no matter how small it is, is REQUIRED to pay their employees' contributions. if there are businesses who are not paying, philhealth agencies should be notified. the thing goes with SS. everyone is required to pay their fees. for govt employees, they should apply in GSIS. SS offers several services such as loans, maternity benefits, pensions, etc. it is a big help for the people who has both SS and philhealth.

it is mandatory for businesses to deduct a part of the employees' salaries.. however, 50% of philhealth contributions of the employee must be paid by the employer..
