What should I do if my work said I need to do a 5-year renewal after I paid my SSSC fee?
I paid my SSSC fee in March and my place of work has said that I need to do a 5-year renewal how do I go about this?
You pay a fee with your application and a fee each year for the period of your registration. This is usually five years except for social workers (three years) and social work students (up to seven years). At the end of the registration period you are invited to renew your registration.
