What is the Pag-IBIG MID Number?
The Pag-IBIG Membership ID (MID) number is a unique 12-digit number that is assigned to each individual Pag-IBIG Fund member. When you register to become a member of the Pag-IBIG Fund, you are given your own Pag-IBIG MID number that you can use to access your membership records, pay your contributions, apply for housing loans, request for assistance from the agency, and all other actions related to your membership.
The Pag-IBIG MID number is different from the Pag-IBIG registration tracking number (RTN), although both have the same number of digits (12). The Pag-IBIG RTN is the tracking number that was given to you upon first-time registration, and can be used to verify the status of your Pag-IBIG MID number.
Virtual Pag-IBIG Online Verification Process
The quickest and most convenient way to check your Pag-IBIG MID number is through the Virtual Pag-IBIG website. You don’t have to sign up to Virtual Pag-IBIG in order to check your MID number, although it’s recommended to register for a free account because it allows you to view your regular savings contributions, MP2 contributions, link your Pag-IBIG Loyalty Card, and more.
Follow these steps to check your Pag-IBIG MID number through the Virtual Pag-IBIG website:
Step 1: Open the Virtual Pag-IBIG website and click “Be a Member” and then “Verify MID No.”
Step 2: Enter the following required information:
- Registration Tracking Number – Enter your Pag-IBIG RTN. This is the 12-digit tracking number that was given to you during membership registration.
- Last Name – Enter your surname or family name.
- Date of Birth – Indicate your birthday in DD-MM-YYYY format. For example, if your birthday is on February 14, 1990, type 14-02-1990.
When you’re done, click “SUBMIT.”
Step 3: If your provided information matches with your records, your 12-digit Pag-IBIG Membership ID (MID) number will be shown. Copy or write it down for your reference.
Take note that Pag-IBIG online verification only works if you have your Pag-IBIG registration tracking number (RTN). If you don’t have or if you forgot your RTN, follow the other Pag-IBIG number verification methods below.
Call the Pag-IBIG Hotline
Dial the Pag-IBIG hotline number (02) 8-724-4244 to talk to a customer service representative. For faster access, press 1 and then 3 when prompted.
You will be asked to provide your complete name (including middle name), mother’s maiden name, date of birth, and employment status. If you’re calling from your prepaid mobile number, make sure that you have enough cellphone load. The agent may ask you to spell out your name so it will take around 8-10 minutes to complete the verification.
Be sure to have a ballpen and a scrap of paper ready in order to list down your Pag-IBIG MID number and/or RTN.
The Pag-IBIG hotline is open 24 hours a day, seven days a week, so you can call them even on Sundays for any membership-related concerns.

As humans, we’re prone to forgetting many things and one of them is our Pag-IBIG number. In my case, I didn’t receive an email containing my Pag-IBIG MID number and RTN, and I failed to record them somewhere. I had to call the Pag-IBIG hotline to know my MID number since online verification isn’t possible due to the absence of the RTN. If you already know your RTN, then the Pag-IBIG number verification process is easy, thanks to the Virtual Pag-IBIG website.
If you have any questions or inquiries about Pag-IBIG number verification as well as other related concerns, call the Pag-IBIG 24/7 hotline (02) 8-724-4244 or email [email protected].
