How To Apply For Pag-IBIG Loans
PAG-IBIG Fund is a government-run mutual fund developed for the primary purpose of providing affordable housing programs for the majority of Pinoys. Aside from housing, another goal of the PAG-IBIG Fund is to generate savings. Considering the inflation rate, this option is a practical means of purchasing a property or getting the money you need during emergencies.
In 2009, under RA 9679, Pag-IBIG membership was made mandatory to all employees that are covered by the Social Security System (SSS) and Government Service Insurance System (GSIS). The good thing about being a member of the PAG – IBIG Fund is that you can withdraw your savings after 2 decades of membership, after completing a total of 240 monthly contributions.
The fund is primarily designed to provide affordable housing loans to its members. This enables contributors to have enough money to pay for their dream house. Borrowers then pay PAG-IBIG for their housing loan with a reasonable repayment amount for an extended time.
Besides housing loans, the PAG-IBIG Fund is able to extend loan facilities for other purposes where contributors can borrow short term loans from the fund. Their loan products other than their housing loan can provide financial assistance to members who need livelihood, medical and even educational assistance. Borrowing money from the PAG-IBIG Fund is convenient and practical considering the minimal deductions that you will have to bear.
