If you’re a member of the Home Development Mutual Fund or the Pag-IBIG Fund, you know how important it is to pay your contributions and loans on time. By paying way before the due date, you’ll avoid costly penalties for late payment. The good news is that you can conveniently pay your Pag-IBIG contributions, savings and loan amortizations online, so there’s little reason for you to miss your Pag-IBIG payments.
The government has really made it easier for Filipinos to pay their Pag-IBIG contributions. Aside from the usual over-the-counter payments at banks and payment collection outlets like Bayad Center, the Pag-IBIG Fund has opened several online payment channels for those who prefer to pay through the Internet. Using a computer or mobile phone, members can pay their Pag-IBIG contributions, MP2 savings and loan amortizations easily and conveniently. There’s no need to personally visit the Pag-IBIG office or a payment center to remit your contributions or pay your loans.
In case you don’t know, the agency has launched the Virtual Pag-IBIG website to facilitate the quick and easy access to Pag-IBIG services. Through the Virtual Pag-IBIG platform, members can apply for housing loans, check their contributions, view their savings records, pay their contributions online, and many more – all through the Internet. Read this article to learn how to register for a free account.
If you want to know how much to pay each month as your Pag-IBIG contribution, you can refer to this Pag-IBIG contribution table. Your maximum monthly contribution is ₱200 if you’re a self-employed or voluntary member, or ₱100 if you’re employed (the maximum employer share is also ₱100).
