After successfully logging in to your account, navigate to TRANSACTIONS menu then click the Maternity Notification link. You need to fill out an online form that requests for information such as expected date of delivery, number of delivery/miscarriage prior to current notification and date of last delivery/miscarriage. Those are the same information that you will provide if you opt to submit your Maternity Notification Form directly at an SSS office. The good thing with the online maternity notification aside from escaping the hassle of waiting in line is that you do not need to submit right away all the supporting documents needed. Also, you will be informed if you are entitled to this benefit based on your monthly contribution and an estimated computation of your maternity claim is also available online. So after you have successfully submitted your notification, you will receive a message thru the site with reference number and an indicator that your MAT1 is online accepted. You only need to print this confirmation page or email which will serve as your MAT1 form. Attach to your Mat II Form together with supporting documents which you will later need to submit to your SSS servicing branch after securing the birth certificate of your child. One less hassle in going to the crowded SSS office just to submit your MAT1 Form.
