Although I live and work in the USA, I still want to pay for my PAGIBIG Fund contributions. SSS? Nevermind. I am no longer a believer of the SSS. That’s a long discussion so let’s save it for a different post.
If you are an OFW, maintaining your PAGIBIG Fund membership has many benefits. As a PAGIBIG Fund member, you are entitled to apply for a housing loan or a short term loan. The housing loan is very helpful when you decide to buy a lot, a house, or a condo unit. In addition, you can contribute more than the minimum required by law and this could serve as a savings account.
If you registered as an OFW and secured your OEC, you would have been asked to pay for your PAGIBIG Fund contribution at the POEA office. Before you can use the online payment facility, you will need the following;
- PAGIBIG Fund Membership ID (MID) No.
- Credit Card (Visa or Mastercard)
