What is SSS Loan Restructuring Program(LRP)? A program of the Social Security System that helps SSS members pay off their past due loans by removing their loan penalties from their total SSS loan balance. A way for helping individuals who could not pay off their loans especially those who were affected by calamities and disasters in different parts of the Philippines. Also known as SSS Loan Condonation that aims to help pinoys who were unable to pay their loans simply because they don’t have work anymore or they were unable process their payments on time.

Even if you were not directly affected by these calamities or disasters, it is possible that your place was once included under state of calamity.

For example, during typhoon Ondoy in 2009, not all areas in NCR were flooded and not all residents were affected. But you know what, the entire NCR or National Capital Region, including Metro Manila was declared by the national government under State of Calamity.

Therefore, if you were working or residing anywhere in Metro Manila during typhoon Ondoy or even right now when you apply for LRP, you are still eligible.
