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.
