Let’s break down what this SSS contribution table for Voluntary and Non-Working Spouses means:
- Contribution amounts are based on your monthly salary credit – this is the compensation base to compute your contributions
- Salary credit ranges from Php 1,000 to Php 20,000 per month
- Higher salary credit will result in higher contribution amounts
- But note the maximum contribution is Php 4,200 based on the Php 30,000 monthly salary credit cap
- If your monthly salary credit is Php 15,000 – your monthly SSS contribution is Php 1,500
- If your monthly salary credit is Php 8,000 – your SSS contribution is Php 800
- Even if your actual income is Php 40,000/month, the maximum SSS contribution is capped at Php 4,200 monthly

The monthly SSS contribution of non-working spouses is fixed and not based on income. The contribution amount for 2023 is Php 240 per month – Php 120 is your share, and Php 120 is the share of your employed spouse.
