PayMaya now enables cashless options to easily pay for your BIR and SSS dues from the safety and the comfort of your homes.
BIR and SSS
Even if quarantine rules have relaxed a bit, it is still safer and more efficient to pay your government dues online using cashless methods. For the Bureau of Internal Revenue (BIR), convenience fees are waived when paying via the Bills section of the PayMaya app. As for the Social Security System (SSS), you can get a chance to earn up to 100% cashback when using PayMaya to pay your fees via the SSS mobile app.
Both BIR and SSS has previously announced a final extension for tax filing and membership dues, respectively, until June 15, 2020.
Other Government Agencies
Aside from BIR and SSS, PayMaya has also enabled more government agencies and units with the ability to accept card and e-wallet payments as the whole country accelerates its digital efforts in light of the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic.
These agencies and units include the PAG-IBIG Fund, Department of Trade and Industry (DTI), the Professional Regulation Commission (PRC), the Department of Science and Technology (DOST), the Department of Foreign Affairs (DFA), the National Home Mortgage Finance Corporation (NHMFC), and the City of Valenzuela, among others.
The Commuting Public
PayMaya had also partnered with the Department of Transportation (DOTr) and the Land Transport Regulatory and Franchising Board (LTFRB) in order to equip public utility vehicles (PUVs) such as taxis, buses, and TNVS cars with cashless payment options. hirna, a ride-hailing app, had already adapted a cashless payment option with PayMaya QR.
