Social Security in The Philippines
Social security in the Philippines consist of the Social Security System (SSS), the Workers' Investment Savings Program (WISP), health insurance (PhilHealth) from the Philippine Health Insurance Corporation (PHIC), and the Home Development Mutual Fund (HDMF) which many also call Pag-IBIG. Contributions are shared between employers and employees.
Contributions to the SSS are variable according to a complex set of tiers in which your income falls into. There are also minimum and maximum caps as well. The WISP, which is the mandatory provident fund (MPF), is part of the SSS. Only income over a certain threshold are subject to mandatory contributions to the WISP which also follows a similar set of tiers and rules as the SSS. Note that some sources may cause some confusion by combining the contribution rates for the SSS and the WISP together.
The health insurance contribution rate is 4%, which is evenly shared between employers and employees with a maximum cap on the applicable income.
Lastly, HDMF or Pag-IBIG contributions come in at around 1% to 2% according to your income.
Note that all social security contributions are tax deductible for resident citizens.
Foreign nationals are not required to participate in contributions to the HDMF (also called Pag-IBIG). Unlike with resident citizens, foreign nationals can not deduct contributions to lower their taxable income.
Resident status and income tax in The Philippines
Resident citizen taxpayers are subject to tax on worldwide income while all other taxpayers are subject to tax only on income derived from sources within The Philippines.
According to Section 22, sub line E of the National Internal Revenue Code, citizens may be considered to be non-resident for tax purposes if they establish the fact of their physical presence abroad and definite intention to stay abroad to the satisfaction of the Bureau of Internal Revenue (BIR) Commissioner, leave the country to reside abroad as an immigrant or for permanent employment abroad, and gain an income abroad with work that requires them to physically be abroad for most of the year. The tax code says that proof must be submitted to the Commissioner.
For foreign nationals, those that are working in the country on a contract for an indefinite period will be considered a resident alien. Otherwise, they are generally considered to be non-resident aliens which are then split up into two categories. If they stay and work in The Philippines for over 180 days in a calendar year, they will be considered to be a non-resident alien "engaged in trade or business". Otherwise, if the period does not exceed 180 days in a calendar year, they will be considered to be a non-resident alien not "engaged in trade or business".
