Pag-IBIG Online Verification
Open the Virtual Pag-IBIG website and click “Be a Member” and then “Verify MID No.”
Enter your registration tracking number (RTN), last name, and date of birth in YYYY-MM-DD format. Click “SUBMIT.”
Your Pag-IBIG membership ID (MID) number will be shown. Copy or write it down for your reference.
The Pag-IBIG online verification method only works if you have your Pag-IBIG registration tracking number or 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, tap 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 Sunday for Pag-IBIG number verification.

Final Thoughts on Pag-IBIG Number Verification
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 Pag-IBIG number since online verification isn’t possible due to the lack 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].
