Study now, pay later
May I know if my son is qualified to the study now-pay later scheme by the government? He is a third year medical technology student at Adventist University at Silang, Cavite, but has stopped because of financial constraints. He wants to continue studying in the same school this coming first semester but we cannot support him in full. We need help.
Please enlighten us about this scholarship program. Me and my husband are SSS members.
Thank you very much.

REPLY: This is in response to the letter of Mrs. Aleli C. Gebone asking about the educational assistance loan program and how she and her husband can avail of the program for their son’s education.
We would like to inform Mrs. Gebone the following qualifying conditions to avail of the loan:
The member should not have reached the age of 60;
The actual monthly income of the member is equal to or less than P25,000;
Member has at least 36 monthly contributions and at least six posted contributions within the last 12 months before the month of filing of application; and
Member should be up-to-date in payment of other member loans with the SSS, if any.
We advise Mrs. Gebone to visit the nearest SSS branch, call our call center at telephone numbers 9206446 to 55 to know if she and her husband are qualified to avail of the program. We also encourage Mrs. Gebone to register with My.SSS through the SSS website (www.

We hope we were able to clarify this issue with you.
