Do you want to know your future SSS pension when you retire?

Did you know that you can check your estimated pension amount for your 60th or 65th retirement age? Have you even wondered how your SSS pension is calculated?

Me and my employers have been paying my Social Security System contributions diligently for the past years and recently, I became curious on the benefits that I have under the SSS program. A few weeks back, I was playing around the SSS portal (www.sss.gov.ph) and aside from being able to see all my contributions (yes all of them), SSS benefits, and eligibility, I stumbled upon their “Stimulated Retirement Calculator” feature which is basically a glimpse of your possible estimated pension amounts you will get starting on your 60th and 65th retirement.

I was expecting something like P4,000 pesos but to my surprise, it was better.

 

Here’s how to check your future SSS pension. No need to compute manually, you just need to follow these 3 simple steps. But before anything, you need an active SSS online account (My SSS). So assuming you already have that all figured out, here it goes:

 

Quartercup Cafe: BF Resort Las Pinas

Quartercup Cafe BF Resort Las Pinas (3)

 

Before I begin, I have been living in Las Pinas city for almost 3 years now, particularly in BF Resort Las Pinas. I have been eating around the places within BF Resort Village and I have not blogged about any of them – yet. A lot of people know BF Homes Paranaque as a food haven in the south but recently, the BF of Las Pinas has been gaining ground when it comes to becoming a foodie haven in its own right. Well, I won’t promise to cover them all but I plan on starting a #DenciosBFResortAdventure series. It will be a crawl alright – probably 1-2 places a week. I think BF Resort has a lot to offer and I am looking forward to sharing them with all of you. Now moving on.

 

Let me start with BF Resort’s newest coffee place – Quartercup CafĂ© which is located at Onofre Commercial Building along Lalaine Bennett Street (near the Creative Middle School and All-Day Convenience Store intersection). The shop is located at the ground floor right beside the self-service laundry. It is small and cozy, probably can sit just around 20 people inside.

 

I have been here twice already, today and last week. I will have to be honest with you, I have not tried their coffee. I am usually there around dinner time and they don’t have decaf so there, no chance for coffee. However, I was able to try a couple of their All-day breakfast and their dark chocolate drink.

My Recession Coffee Experience

Recession Coffee Manila (14)

 

About a few months ago I came across a post on my Facebook Feed about this relatively new coffee shop (they opened around 2015) which according to the post, lets you decide on how much you pay for your coffee. The place is called recession coffee which is a coffee place where you can go whether you are in a good or bad financial situation in your life. To simplify, Pay more if you have more and pay less if you have less. I understand the concept however I am still not convinced on the idea. Are you?

 

Well here goes my Recession Coffee experience.

CleanHome PH Review

 

Almost three years ago, I decided to move out of my parent’s house and find a place for my own. And in the process, I am sort of proud to say that I was able to manage without much pain. I am very domesticated, I can clean, wash the dishes, do the laundry – if I want to – but the reality is, I don’t have the time to do that. The dishes part was easy, the laundry part was a breeze since laundry shops are everywhere however, the main hurdle was the cleaning. Most of the time, my one-bedroom apartment is empty since I have to go to the office during the day but what I realized is that even though there is not much foot traffic and even if you seal your room properly, dusts and dirt accumulate. They just do! Under the bed, behind the TV, behind the refrigerator, the floor, and the toilet and shower area. Then, there came a time when my regular sweeping and dusting does not work anymore – My home does not feel clean anymore! (goes to the shower, turn on the water, sit on the floor, hugs self while rocking back and fort! whispering Ang Dumi Dumi Ko…)

 

Bothered, I tried looking online for cleaning services but to my disappointment, there were no provider that caters the Las Pinas area. So what I did was ask around for recommendations from my friends. Fortunately, I was able to find one who caters to the areas of Paranaque and Las Pinas. It was was a home business, no online platforms and everything was manual. At first it was all good however after my 4th booking with them they became very unreliable. They cancel on the last minute, they send in-experienced cleaners etc. Good thing last year, I stumbled upon CLEANHOME.PH on Facebook.

 

It was super easy. Go to the website, log-in, book a date, and that’s it!
