The Social Security System (SSS) Old vs New Contribution Table


Effective January 2021, the monthly SSS contribution will be increased… again. One of the reasons for this increase is to extend the fund life until the year 2045. But this will not be the only time that SSS will increase its rate. There will be a 1% increase until the year 2025. If you are asking why this is done, it is because of the pension hikes that was implemented.

PhilHealth Contribution Calculator


Aside from SSS, PhilHealth is also increasing its monthly contribution. As of 2020, we are at 3%. 2021 will be 3.50%, 2022 will be 4%, 2023 will be 4.50%, and 2024-2025 will be at 5%. If you ask why? This is because of the Universal Health Care law that gives members and non philhealth members alike, avail the outpatient packages (the provisions are currently being finalized) and immediate eligibility to benefits during confinement/hospitalization.

BDO Nomura Buy and Sell Calculator


In the spirit of fairness, I need to take into account other stock market platforms also. That is why I made this calculator. To all users of this calculator, if there are any changes with the fees. Let me know so that I can update. It would also help, if you include the fees itself when you comment.


I've also been planning to create similar calculators for other platforms. However, since I don't have an account, I can't access their fees table. So I request other platform users to comment the buying and selling fees below.

COL Financial Buy and Sell Calculator


To play the Stock Market game, you need to be fully aware of your entry and exit prices. Meaning, if the market goes up, you already know what your target profit is. If it goes down, you already know amount you can let go. Remember always the mantras "Buy Low Sell High" and "Buy High Sell Higher".

COL Financial Average Down Calculator


Ever since I've created this calculator in 2018, it hasn't left the number 1 spot. This is the article's third year of being the most viewed and used calculator.


Trading and Investing in stocks only mean one thing, you will be dealing with numbers all the time. It is difficult to determine if a stock that you are planning to buy is a good deal or not. Especially, if you already have that particular stock in your portfolio. So how do go about it? The answer is to do take advantage of AVERAGING UP or DOWN the price.
