Do you have an existing SSS loan? Do you know how much your outstanding balance is? If you have no idea, don’t worry, I’ll teach you how you can check your current balance online.
You can personally go to the nearest SSS branch to inquire your loan balance, but wouldn’t it be better if there’s a way to do it without leaving your home? Actually, you can even check it anywhere using your smartphone device with an internet connection.
How do we do this?
