Well, in my case, at least. After a little over three months, I finally received it. I received my Social Security System (SSS) ID in the mail today. My SS card was sent via registered mail and interestingly, the “generic” letter that came with it (which was signed by current SSS Chairman Romulo Neri) was dated February 3, 2009 but the envelope was postmarked February 19, 2009. So I’m thinking the SSS has one really very slow mailing process.
Anyways, this post on how long before you get your SSS ID comes three months after my entry on how to get your SSS ID card. In that post, I mentioned that the data capture operator told me that it might take more than two months before my SSS digital ID is sent via registered mail. Well, what do you know? She was right! Not only did it take more than two months, it actually took more than THREE months *rolls eyes* Ayayay.
My brother, who also received his own SSS card today, even joked that it might have even taken a longer time but the SSS people have to do double time on pleasing their contributors. After all, didn’t the SSS raise the possibility of diverting P12.5-billion SSS funds to the government’s so-called “stimulus plan“?
So what about you? How long did it take before you received your SSS ID?
