Complete Guide to Pag-IBIG Fund: Online Registration, Benefits & Programs

Last Updated on – Jul 19, 2023 @ 8:45 pm

Confession time: For the longest time I had no idea what the acronym Pag-IBIG meant.

All I know is that it’s a mandatory contribution that employees are required to participate in. But what is it for, exactly? If you ever wondered where your PAG-IBIG contributions are going, this article will get you the answers and more.

And if case you’re wondering, here’s what Pag-IBIG stands for: Pagtutulungan sa Kinabukasan: Ikaw, Bangko, Industriya at Gobyerno.

The “IBIG” part is where the meat of the definition is: You (I), the Bank, the Industry, and the Government all play a part in this savings scheme.

To be clear, it’s one and the same with the Home Development Mutual Fund or HDMF, which is a corporation owned and controlled by the government.

Per their website, the HDMF was established to be “an answer to the need for a national savings program and an affordable shelter financing for the Filipino worker.”

Pag-IBIG Fund Benefits & Programs

So what’s in it for me as a member of PAG-IBIG? Benefit-wise, the program is divided into three categories:

  • Housing Loan
  • Short Term Loan
  • Provident Savings

Membership is exclusive to all Filipinos who are or ought to be covered by the Social Security System (SSS).

Let’s take a closer look at each category.

Housing Loan

This is what PAG-IBIG is best known for. The idea is to provide affordable financing to Filipinos through its loan program by partnering with local Real Estate Developers.

As of January 2022, loan interest rates of the Pag-IBIG Fund Housing Loan starts at 5.750% for 1-year and 6.375% for 3-years minimum. A loan is payable up to a maximum of 30 years (at 10% interest rate).

This helps our fellow Filipinos buy their own house through a staggered payment approach stretched to their preferred time horizon.

Short Term Loan

Pag-IBIG also provides its members the ability to make short-term cash loans. It’s classified into 2 types: Calamity Loan and Multi-purpose Loan.

  • Calamity Loan – As its name suggests, this type of loan is for people who need financial aid after some unforeseen type of calamity or disaster (flood, fire, etc).
  • Multi-purpose Loan – This type of loan is for people who want to borrow money for a variety of reasons, whether it’s for a personal purchase or raising a small capital to fund their business idea.

Provident Savings

Aside from housing and short-term loans, Pag-IBIG also acts as a Savings Program, or better known as Provident Savings.

The employee’s monthly savings (including employer share, as applicable) and total annual dividend earnings make up the member’s TAV or Total Accumulated Savings.

Members can claim their Provident Savings after membership maturity of 20 years with 240 monthly contributions, retirement, or in the event of disability, termination from work due to health reasons, death, or departure from the country.

Features include:

  • Tax-free annual dividend earnings
  • All Savings are guaranteed by the government
  • Portability of Savings – Members may easily continue their savings/contribution even when transferring from government work to private sector (and vice versa)

6 Tips to Maximize your Pag-IBIG Benefits

1. Treat your Pag-IBIG contributions as Assets 

Most people will dismiss Pag-IBIG contributions as “just” a mandatory deduction from their monthly salary. But as we’ve discussed above, there’s more to it aside from just being a simple housing loan option.

Aside from the benefits of the Pag-IBIG 1 program (Short-term loan and Provident loan), there’s also Pag-IBIG 2 or (MP2) which is an additional and voluntary five-year savings option offered to Pag-IBIG I members.

It provides you with another avenue for investing which is essential to wealth building.

2. Make sure your Pag-IBIG contributions are up to date 

It’s your responsibility to ensure that monthly deductions are being made and remitted accordingly.

To do this, you can visit the nearest Pag-IBIG branch or check it online (refer to section above: How to check PAG-Ibig Contribution Online)

3. Sign up for the Pag-IBIG Savings Program 

Remember the MP2 (or Modified Pag-IBIG II) program we mention in #1? This option allows you to allocate a minimum amount of Php 500 per month in an investment that is rated to earn at a higher interest rate compared to savings and time deposit accounts on some banks.

Monthly ContributionReturn in 5 YRsReturn in 10 YRs
*If dividend is set to 6% by Pag-IBIG

You can even deposit in lump sum. And as we’ve mentioned here, while banks provide you with a safe place to store emergency funds, they’re not ideal if your goal is to build wealth.

Savings in the MP2 program can be claimed after it matures in 5 years.

Members can also opt to renew it should they wish to. And here’s the kicker: Your Total accumulated value (TAV) will not be charged with 20% withholding tax unlike the savings and time deposit accounts in banks. Nice!

4. Higher Contributions = Higher dividends from savings and higher success rate for qualifying for bigger loans 

When you opt to contribute more than the minimum amount, it increases your chances of getting approved for bigger loan amounts.

And since Pag-IBIG also acts as a savings program, the more amount you put in translates to higher potential dividends and earnings in the future.

5. Grab a Pag-IBIG Loyalty Card 

Yes, you heard that right. And believe it or not, its benefits are surprisingly useful. Through its partnerships, it features the following discounts:

  • 5% to 50% discount on medicine
  • 10% to 20% tuition fee discount
  • 10 pesos off your LPG purchase

If you’re interested, simply download and complete this form. Submit it to the nearest Pag-IBIG branch, then pay the 100-peso fee.

6. Contribute in lump sum to quickly become eligible for their loan program 

Here’s another tip most members are not aware of. You can actually pay for the full 24-month contribution upfront, enabling you to become a member and be eligible for loans, without the need to wait for 2 years! Cool, huh?

Step-by-step guide to getting a Pag-IBIG Housing Loan

Want to apply for a Pag-IBIG housing loan? Below are the steps that you have to follow. But first, determine how you want to apply for a Pag-IBIG housing loan.

You can either enlist the help of a developer in applying for a housing loan or apply on your own.

1. Determine the purpose of your loan

The Pag-IBIG housing loan may be used in many ways. Apart from financing building of a house, a Pag-IBIG housing loan can help you with a number of house-related expenses like buying a residential house and lot or condominium, or even doing major home repairs and renovations.

Choose the option that will best suit your purpose.

2. Choose the Pag IBIG housing loan program that matches your current income level.

You may choose between two payment programs: affordable housing loan program and the regular housing loan program.

The former is ideal for low-income earners particularly those earning not more than Php 17,500. Under this scheme, you can borrow a maximum of Php 750,00 and pay a reasonable minimum monthly fee. You’ll get a lower interest rate too.

If your gross monthly income is above-average, you may opt to avail the regular housing loan program wherein you can borrow a maximum of Php 6 million and get an interest rate of as low as 5.375%.

Keep in mind that though that the loanable amount will depend on Pag-IBIG’s assessment of your application.

So while there is a Pag-IBIG Fund Housing Loan Affordability Calculator available online, it can only give you a rough estimate of what you can get and not the exact amount.

All about Pag-IBIG acquired assets

Pag-IBIG fund has always served as a channel for people to make their dreams of acquiring a home of their own easier through the various products they offer.

Everyone knows about the loans and savings programs they offer, but very few talk about how they enable prospective homeowners to buy properties at a cheaper price through auctioning Pag-IBIG acquired assets.

As its name implies, a Pag-IBIG acquired asset is a property that has been repossessed because of failure of payment from the owners.

It is typically auctioned to the public at a way more affordable price in an effort to get back the defaulted home loan.

Now you might be wondering, will Pag-IBIG acquired assets make good investments? Relatively, they’re cheaper than market value and will  give you more value for your money as its worth increase in the long run.

Properties acquired by Pag-IBIG are usually built back in the days when prime locations are widely available.

This allows prospective owners of Pag-IBIG acquired properties to enjoy the perks and convenience of living near the city center such as having easy access to hospitals, supermarkets, offices, and schools.

Before bidding for a foreclosed property, make sure that it is still in livable condition and that you wouldn’t end up spending more in home improvement and renovation. Also watch out for any possible issues with the property’s previous owner.

This can bring undue distress to you and your wallet should the situation gets out of hand and you’ll need to bring things to court.

Tips for Buying a Pag-IBIG acquired property

1. Know everything you can about the property.

Find out the reason for foreclosure and gather information from the neighbors. If you can, meet up with former owners as well. This should give you a bigger picture of what to expect from the property and the area’s living conditions.

If you’re buying for investment purposes, check if its location is ideal for getting the most out of your real estate investment and if the property developer is reliable.

2. Be mindful of the expense.

Apart from the remaining balance that you’ll have to pay, you must also check for possible hidden costs.

Typically, your expenses will include notary and registration fees, down payment, and local transfer tax.

Should the property you are considering need some fixing, you need to factor the cost in to your overall expense as well.

3. Do an ocular.

Make it a point to visit the property you are looking into so that you’ll see how it really looks like.

Inspect not just the house or condominium unit but the area surrounding it as well to ensure how well the property has been maintained.

Figure out how easy or difficult it would be for you to get to and fro your home as well.

4. Have an expert look at it.

If you want further assurance that you are making the right decision, bring along a real estate expert to visit the property with you.

He or she should be able to give you sound advice due to his or her knowledge and years of experience.

Final Thoughts

Preparing for the future is an important task that everyone should do. The Pag-IBIG Fund provides a great way for Filipinos to have an affordable housing and short-term loans along with an excellent savings program.

  2. Melben Hondos says

    Is there any ways that i can print my registration form with my pag-ibig number on it ? di ko na ma access kasi yung view registration information it seems deleted na sa kanilang website

    PAGIBIG on-line website sucks, and you cannot get through when you want to check your contribution status. It keeps on showing that the site is being upgraded but as far as I can remember it was being upgraded for couple of years already, while the link to their accomplishments, how to pay contributions and other money generating programs on their favor are always updated. The website caters for less important issues and information while you still have to send them email to request for your most valued contributions and wait for forever to receive any response.

    Help naman po please. And palink nalang po sana kung anuman ang pupuntahan. Para maayos yung Pag Ibig Number ko thanks.

    ko. Hindi ko tuloy mahulugan sa office. Paano ba maaayos yung number ng Pag Ibig ko gamit po sana yung online? Para hindi na ako pupunta sa anomang branch ng Pag Ibig.

    Hi po tanong ko lang kung ang sahod po ay P12,000 at 2% po ang nakaallocate sa contribution bale tig P240 po ang employer at employee. Paano po kung ang hinuhulog lang po ay tig 100 sa employee at employer, tanong ko po dapat po ba ay obligado si employer at employee na 2% ang icontribution o allowed ang employer na gawin na 100 lang ang ikaltas pra sa contribution. Gusto ko po malaman kung pede po ang ganun na hindi 2% ang inihuhulog ni employer pra sa contribution sa Pagibig

    Sir, you have penned the most comprehensive, information packed article on the subject of Pag Ibig as an investment and the benefits offered that I have ever read! I have read a lot on this before, asked questions of my Brother In Law who works at Pag ibig and still, I learned a lot that I did not know. Thank you very much for the time and effort, it is appreciated. You have greatly helped this EX-pat in making the decision of where to invest for my beautiful bride and our family.
