How to Increase your Savings with Pag-IBIG Fund

Aside from saving your money in the bank which offers lower interest rates, you can also save your money through the savings program of Pag-IBIG Fund.

As of 2017, the maximum contribution a Pag-IBIG member can save per month is P100. If you’re employed, your employer’s share is also P100. This means you save P200 per month.

Why should you increase your savings or contribution to Pag-IBIG Fund? 

They say the more you save, the more you will reap or receive in the future. This is also true for your Pag-IBIG savings plus there are other benefits.

1. If you have bigger savings, that also means bigger dividends for you.

If you save P200 monthly for 20 years with Pag-IBIG Fund, your total savings would be P48,000. And if for example, the annual dividend rate is at 4%, you will take home P73,015.85 after 20 years of saving.

This is way better than if you save your money in the bank that only offers more or less 0.25% interest rate per year.

2. If you apply for the Multi-Purpose Loan (MPL) Program of Pag-IBIG, your loan amount will be higher if you have bigger savings.

Remember that the loan amount is based on the member-borrower’s total savings and the length of membership
with Pag-IBIG.
