It is important for you to become aware of the benefits of using the DAEM. Please check out the details below for more information.
What is Disbursement Account Enrollment Module (DAEM)?
The Disbursement Account Enrollment Module (DAEM) is a My.SSS feature allows employers and members to credit SSS benefits and loan proceeds directly to the enrolled bank account. It is a feature available to every SSS member-from employer to employees and individuals who are either self-employed, voluntary or even OFWs.
Though this is an option available to everyone, those with the UMID ATM cards may opt not to enroll their bank accounts, as the proceeds, either benefit or loans, may be deposited directly to their UMID-ATM account if they so desire. There are certain restrictions, which we will be listing down in detail later.

What are the things that to remember when enrolling a My.SSS Disbursement Account?
- Make sure to use only valid and active bank account details or mobile numbers.
Avoid making the following mistakes:
- Closed, Dormant, or Frozen Accounts. These are bank accounts that are not in active use for a certain period. These types of accounts were either closed by the bank or were made dormant due to inactivity.
- Dollar Account. Note that the disbursement bank account should be a Peso Account.
- Joint (and/or) Accounts. These are bank accounts that are named after you and/or another person.
- Time-Deposit Account
- Invalid Mobile Number. If you are enrolling an e-wallet account (e.g., Paymaya or Gcash), make sure that you are entering the correct mobile number digits
- Account Name differs from Member Name. To avoid problems, make sure that your bank account bears the same name as the one registered in your SSS account.
- Different Disbursing Bank. Make sure that you are enrolling with the correct disbursing bank. That is, if your bank account is with BDO, then make sure you are selecting BDO when registering a disbursing bank account.
- Prepaid Account
- Account with Restrictions
- Ensure that you are not using duplicate accounts or mobile numbers as they will be rejected upon registration.
If you plan to use another person’s mobile number as your e-wallet disbursement account, make sure that the other person has not used it as his/her SSS Disbursement account. It is best to use your mobile number when you register or make your disbursement account to avoid your benefit or loan disbursement problems.
- Make sure that all the details are error-free.
Errors in your enrolled disbursement account details may result in the non-crediting of your benefit or loan proceeds. Requests for re-crediting the benefit or loan amount also take time as it may take up to 30 days of processing time upon correcting the incorrect account details.
- When using bank accounts, do note the following:
- Employers, or their authorized personnel, must elect only one (1) PESONet-participating bank account for all branches and subsidiaries.
- Employed as well as all individually-paying members may enroll up to three (3) active bank accounts but must nominate one of these accounts for benefit or loan disbursements.
- Make sure that you are entering the bank account number and not the ATM card number. If unsure, double-check the correct bank account number from your preferred disbursing bank.
- Bank account numbers should be written as a continuous string of numbers, without special characters like dash or other symbols in between.
- When using a cash card, make sure that the issuing bank allows the use of the card for SSS disbursement.
- When choosing to enroll a Remittance Payout Company (RTC) or a Cash Payout Outlet (CPO),
- Note that SSS will send the reference number that you will need to claim the benefit or loan proceeds via text message (SMS), so make sure that your mobile number is correct and active.
- Encode mobile numbers must be in their 11-digit format (e.g. 0917234567). Do away with the +63, or dash (-), or any non-numeric characters.
- There is a maximum allowable amount limit when disbursement is made via RTC or CPO. It is Php100,000.00.
- RTC or CPOs like MLhuillier will charge a transaction fee, which will vary depending on its current prevailing rates.
- When using e-wallets, like Paymaya or Gcash,
- Make sure that your account is upgraded or verified so that it can receive the full amount of proceeds beyond the usual limit. An Upgraded Paymaya account will have a green checkmark, and a verified GCash account will have a Fully Verified note next to the owner’s profile in the e-wallet app.
- If you encoded the wrong mobile number upon enrollment in the DAEM, or if you lose your registered mobile phone (i.e., Lost Reference Number), note that the re-crediting of the benefit or loan proceeds to the correct or new mobile number may take up to 30 days processing time upon receipt of correction or change data request.
