The members of the Fund include locally-employed individuals, self-employed individuals, overseas Filipino workers (OFWs), and voluntary members. A membership to the Fund is mandated among government employees and the workers of most companies and businesses in the private sector in the Philippines.

To keep an active and updated account, a Pag-IBIG Fund member must regularly post a monthly contribution or savings. The minimum contribution depends on the minimum rate set by the Fund.

Currently, the Pag-IBIG Fund awaits the approval of Malacañang on the possibility of raising the minimum mandatory contribution of the members. Once approved by the Palace, the minimum mandatory contribution will be raised from Php 100.00 to Php 200.00.

According to the government-owned and controlled corporation (GOCC), the increase on the minimum contribution pave the way for an additional P1 million in the housing loans without an increase on the interest rates.

Fund members with updated accounts may qualify to the loans offered by the government-controlled institution. It is most popular for the Pag-IBIG Housing Loan offer which has helped countless Filipinos in financing the following:

  • purchase of vacant lot and residential units

  • home renovation

  • combined loan purposes

Aside from the Housing Loan offer, the Fund also has the Pag-IBIG Multi-Purpose Loan and the Pag-IBIG Calamity Loan offer.
