What should I do with my SSS, PhilHealth, and Pag-Ibig?

Hello, Kababayans! I'm getting ready for my visa application and will leave my 8-year call center job soon. For 8 years, they deducted from my paycheck to pay for SSS, PhilHealth, and Pag-Ibig. What should I do now that I will be leaving my job soon? Can I "suspend" my contributions? Is that even possible? How did you continue paying for these benefits? Those who have moved to the USA, did you continue paying for the benefits or did you stop becoming a member of these? Thank you in advance for your answers. So lost. Lol

Suspend your contributions? My asawa just stopped participating in SSS and Philhealth when she came here to the USA. Philhealth can't be used here in the USA, and we already have SS here in the USA which will pay out more than you will ever get from SSS.

CFO Seminars back in the days would try to convince you to keep contributing from your USA job.  (Just another reason I am not a fan of te CFO Seminars)

 

Me personally unless you plan on only spending a few years in the USA I would be done contributing

Okay, thank you. I might just do that.

Yeah, contributing after the move doesn't make a lot of sense. Thanks.

Hello, I knew I didn’t have plans of using my sss, Phil health and pagibig when I got here. So what I did when I went back, I went to closed my account and was able to get a check( lump sum) of my contributions in pagibig. I will wait till I get old for my sss because I do not believe you can close that ( I could be wrong of course). Good luck

May I ask Magknano/Pila?

 

How long did you contribute?  

 

Did they charge you a fee or penalty for early withdrawl?
