The ID capture machine of most SSS branches are already either out of service or no longer working. With this situation, it made it very hard for most SSS members looking to apply for a SSS ID. That is, because most of the time, they had to sacrifice 1 day just to fall in line to the main branch because it is only there that you can be guaranteed to have ID capturing machines to accommodate your SSS ID application.

If this situation will continue, members of the Social Security System in the Philippines will have a hard time getting their own ID. Another problem that I think must be addressed is the problem of issuing the said SSS ID. It sometimes takes years before these ID’s come to the mailing address provided by members. I hope the local government of the Philippines will be able to give a concrete solution to this problem.
