SSS Online Inquiry is a service that members of the Social Security System, or SSS, of the Philippines can access for information concerning salary loans, SSS contributions and membership records. Members can also make online transactions and schedule appointments with local SSS branches.

The Social Security Service of the Philippines is not an official agency within the government. It is a private insurance organization that offers services dealing with sickness, disability, maternity, loans, retirement and death. Most members of the SSS contribute a certain percentage of their income to the program or have their employers do it for them. The "My.SSS" website allows members to make sure their contributions are regular and to manage their accounts.
