Pag-ibig Retirement in the Philippines — Process Your Claims Quicker

If you’re nearing retirement and you’ve had more than one employer, check as soon as you can if all the records of your contributions since your started contributing to Pag-ibig are already in one branch of Pag-ibig.

Pag-ibig does not consolidate the records of members whose employers are located in different Pag-ibig jurisdictions; it expects its members to consolidate their records.

It takes months to consolidate, so start now.

Ipunin mo ang records mo sa isang Pag-ibig branch lang

My husband, who had two employers and who also continued paying as a voluntary member while working abroad, had to track his contributions and consolidate them in one branch before he was allowed to submit his retirement claims.

The dollar-denominated Pag-ibig Overseas Program, however, is really separate. You make your claims separately at the Gil Puyat, Makati branch.

By the way, my husband has paid more than 240 monthly contributions, so he was to able to file a claim. But he’s still waiting because of the consolidation process.

Update as of March 2011:

My husband’s claim, which was processed over a span of several months in 2009, was rejected because Pag-ibig counted only 231 contributions. Pag-ibig advised my husband to pay nine monthly contributions, either monthly, quarterly, or at one time, but has to wait for 9 months before he can file his claim again.  We didn’t yet refile because we decided the money can earn more with Pag-ibig than with a time deposit. We can use it for my daughter’s tuition fees in her higher years in college.

  3. Hi vhina, if your father has previously claimed all his money from Pag-ibig, then he has no more to claim. If he is not sure, he can go to his Pag-ibig branch and ask, or he can authorize you to ask. Bring his ID and your ID.

  4. gud am. where can I claim or file? I went to atrium in the past; should I go there? My previous office was in Fort Bonifacio, but it’s now closed – Vetronix Inc. Can we claim here in Bacoor or Las pinas? Tnx. God bless

  5. Hi Carmencita, Pag-ibig records are not yet centralized, so you should file your claim at your branch. I assume your branch is the Buendia branch, as you mentioned you were going to Atrium in the past, and Fort Bonifacio offices are remitting at the Buendia branch.

  6. Hi Carmencita, there’s no more Atrium branch. Yes, the Makati branch is in Justine Bldg, Gil Puyat, formerly Buendia

  8. Hi Janine, not yet. When you have accumulated 240 contributions and you’re 45 years old or older, you can claim your savings and dividends. If less than 240, wait till you turn 60.

  11. Hi Ms. Can I apply for Optional withdrawal of my provident funds? I became a member in 1995 up to the time that we were early retired by the company in 2007. I am already 50 yrs old and since 2007 was no longer employed. And where can I get an updated membership contributions. Thanks in advance.

  12. Hi Cora, optional withdrawal is allowed if you contributed continuously without a gap, and you can request only on the 10th or 15th year. But you can already claim your savings, as you’re already older than 45. Ask about your savings info at your Pag-ibig branch — usually the branch nearest the location of your former company.

  16. Hi Cora, if you and the Education Dept. continued to pay contributions to Pag-ibig even after age 60, then you have something to claim from Pag-ibig. You can check your last payslips. If you’re not sure, you can email publicaffairs@pagibigfund.gov.ph.
