  1. I’am 53 years old.i’am not working anymore because i need to take care of my sick wife and aside from that it’s hard for my to get a job again because of my age.can i avail the early retirement to claim my contribution so i can use it for my wife medical maintenance?please reply how.

  2. Hi Beauregard, you can claim your Pag-ibig savings now if you have accumulated 240 monthly contributions or more. If you lack some months, like for example, you have only 234 contributions, you can make contributions for the next 6 months (minimum 200 pesos), then on the 7th month, you can file your claim. Sorry that if you’re far below the 240-contribution mark, you need to wait till you’re 60 before you can claim your benefit.

  3. I turned 60 last Dec. 8, 1955. I filed my retirement claim in your Alabang Branch last May 16, 2016 whch was received by your Makati Office on May 20, 2016.

    As of today, July 4, 2016 NO check has been prepared. According to Ms. Nora, it takes only a month to process it.

    Thank you.

  4. Hi olivia, documents: Application for Provident Benefits Claim form, 2 valid IDs, NSO birth certificate. Bring Pag-ibig card if you have

  5. i am now an sss pensioner since 2012, started working in 1972-1989 w/ an unsettled outstanding loan. Can i apply for any benefit claim?, please give info’s on where, how & all requirements and for what benefit claim title-re: my application

  6. Hi Carlos, do you mean you did not claim anything from Pag-ibig when you retired? If did not, file your claim at the Pag-ibig branch where your employer remitted your contributions. If you worked in different companies in different cities, check if all your contributions are in your main Pag-ibig branch. Ask for a copy or ask to see your summary of contributions. Documents: Application for Provident Benefits Claim, 2 valid IDs, Pag-ibig ID if you have. If date of birth is not on your IDs, bring NSO birth certificate (xerox and orig). It’s good Pag-ibig loan balances are set-off with total savings after loan term, so their interest do not balloon to huge amounts like with SSS salary loans.

  7. gud day po,lapit na po ako mag-60 kaya lang nagpalit ako ng date of birth.

    thanx po

  8. good day. Ms. Nora My question is this, Can I get my full Pagibig contributions at the age of 60 and sometime my housing loan was foreclose due to the reason that its very far on my work thats why it was foseclose but some one applied on that unit. Please let me know.

  9. Hi fatima, what I know is that if Pag-ibig recovers in full your housing loan amount and foreclosure expenses from the sale of the property to the new buyer, your savings will be safe. In their old circulars for loans taken out up to 2004, defaulting members’ savings are affected. But let me first find what’s said in the recent circulars.

  10. I have just filed my claimed on my pag ibig fund i just want to know how true that i takes a month before i got it thanks

  11. Hi Apolonio, yes, around 1 month usually napa-process ang Pag-ibig retirement claim. If you worked in only one or 2 companies in the same city, mas mabilis. Mas matagal kapag naikalat ang contributions ng member in different Pag-ibig branches dahil nag-work in different companies in different cities.

  12. Hi Ms. Nora. I used to work with government 15 years and then with private companies 2.5 years. I decided to stop working to take care of my children full time. I think I had only a total of 150 monthly contributions. I am now 61 years old. Will I be able to claim benefits from PAGIBIG? Thank you very much.

  13. Hi Dinah, yes, you can already claim your Pag-ibig savings. File at the branch where most of your Pag-ibig savings were remitted to. You can first request to see your TAV (total accumulated values) to check if all your contributions, private and government, have been posted in your branch. This is the Pag-ibig Application for Provident Benefits form

  14. Nag retire po ako last June 2008 at nakakuha sa pagibig fund totoo po ba by this time ay may makukuha pa ako from my saving interest fund salamat po

  15. Nagretired po ako last June 2008, still do i get more from the interest of my pagibig fund thank you

  16. Hi. Is it ok to file an early retirement claim? My father retires at 53 years old because of some health conditions. His contributions are around 14 years only. Please advise. Thank you.

  17. Hi Mae, yes, pero kelangan ang medical certificate from the doctor together with his medical or clinical abstract. Dapat ma-certify that your father can no longer work due to incapacitation arising from his health condition. Ito ang exact words from Pag-ibig: One valid reason — Permanent Total Disability or Insanity (loss or impairment of a physical or
    mental function resulting from injury or sickness which completely incapacitates a member to perform any work or engage in any business or occupation as determined by the Fund). Another valid reason — Termination from service by reason of health.

  18. Hi Anita, sorry kung nakuha nio na yong Provident Benefits nio when you retired in 2008, wala nang makukuha pa, kasi once na nakuha na lahat, wala nang balance na mag-i-interest pa. Ang meron lang makukuha pa ay yong pagkatapos naka-claim ay nagsimula uli ng panibagong savings sa Pag-ibig (usually yong employed pa after age 60). Merong list yong Pag-ibig ng members who still have some money to claim, kaya lang down yong Pag-ibig website ngayon; ibigay ko sana yong link. Search mo na lang yong Pag-ibig website during working days.

  19. hi my husband is already 61 and his contribution is less than 240 months its about 100 month. Can we continue on paying contribution til it cost for 240 months?

  20. Hi Mary Jane, yes, you can continue paying so he can save more. If you don’t need the money yet, it’s better that he does not yet claim it, and instead continue saving because Pag-ibig’s dividend rate is higher than banks’ rates. But he has the option to claim his benefit now, and then get a new Pag-ibig number and continue saving. But if you don’t need it yet, then don’t claim it yet (because you might just spend it for unnecessary things) and just continue saving.

  21. Hi What if I am qualified to claim the provident fund (i.e., 45 years old and has completed 240 contributions and left work)? After claiming the pag-ibig provident fund can I still go back to the corporate world?

    thanks.

  22. Hi Marivic, yes! And you can start contributing again, whether as employed or voluntary. Ganun ang ginawa ng relative ko. After claiming his Provident his benefits, he opened another account (new MID) as Voluntary and has been paying for about a year now. Pero, in your case, if you go back to the corporate world, your company is mandated to pay its share and remit your Pag-ibig contributions just like before.

  23. I turned 60 last Sept. 13, 2016 I filed my retirement claim in your Commonwealth Branch last October 10, 2016, after completing the Provident claim form, submitting xerox copies of 2 valid ID’s, NSO birth certificate, and TAV copies. Last December 6, 2016,i went to the Pag-ibig Commonwealth brach where i filed my claim to check the status but to my surprise still NO check has been prepared, i called up the pag-ibig hotline on that particular day to follow-up for the same but they told me still no record on their file that my claim was approved but instead they gave me reference number of 1257290 and after 24-48 hrs they will back to me but no reply from them so i called back to them this morning of Decemebr 8, 2016,2016 still they said to me wait for another 24-48 hrs and they will back again to me.Prior to this last December 6, 2016, between 10am-11am i first called-up Makati POP via tel no 422-3000 local 5950 and the lady who answered to me that my claim was already approved last November 16, 2016 and told me that they sent the check to Commonwealth branch, so i went to Commonwealth branch on that day but the in-charge guy they did not receive any check from Makati head office. So i am confused now which statement is true now? what shall i do now please help me. beside the fact that processing procedure will last only for one month. Do i still have the chance to get the check for my retirement?

    Thank you.

  24. Hello,

    Umalis po ako ng Pilipinas ng single pa. Nagpakasal po ako at isa ng U.S Citizen. Pwede po bang hindi ko muna Iwithdraw ang contribution ko?
    Pwede rin bang iretain ko ang maiden name ko at ang mother ko pa rin ang beneficiary? Hindi po interesado ang asawa kong Americano na magclaim ng mga benefits ko dyan sa Pilipinas.

    Salamat po.

  25. Hello po, i’m 37 years old at nakahulog na po ako ng 17 years sa pag-ibig or 408 months pwede ko na po ba makuha yung nahulog ko since hindi na po ako nagtatrabaho pra po sa mga anak ko.

  26. Under po ang ng POP (overseas program) since 2005 and maturity ko is 10 years. Pwede ko na ba sya ma claim provided wala ako existing loans sa pagibig and ende ko na meet ang 240 contributions?

    Gaano katagal ang processing ng claims?

  27. Hi mike, yes, puede mo nang kunin ang POP savings mo. Yong Pag-ibig 1 ang under the 240-contribution rule. Sorry pero hindi na ko updated sa speed of POP processing. Noong time na konti pa ang claimants, the same day lang. Dapat one day to a few days lang ang processing.
