How To Check If You Are Qualified For A Pag-IBIG Housing Loan

“Am I qualified for a Housing Loan?”

This is a recurring question which appears on this website as comments under different articles with different topics. This article is intended to address that question once and for all and also show you some useful tips.

You can actually personally determine if you are eligible for a housing loan based on the following:

  • Your Pag-IBIG Membership
  • Your Age
  • Your Capacity To Pay
  • Other Pag-IBIG Loans

We’ll try to elaborate each one on the succeeding paragraphs.

Your Pag-IBIG Membership Status

You need to remember the following basic requirements for Pag-IBIG Fund Members.

  • You must be an active Pag-IBIG member for at least 2 years and has contributed a minimum of 24 monthly contributions.
  • Both the principal borrowers are subject to the above mentioned requirement.
  • Up to three Pag-IBIG Members may avail of a single housing loan (same collateral) provided they are related within the second civil degree of consanguinity.

Question: Can I pay 24 months one-time and then avail of the Pag-IBIG Home loan immediately?

Answer: Not anymore, the new Pag-IBIG Law of 2009 has changed the rule. But, you may still pay 24-months one time (Pag-IBIG will be more than happy to accept it) and wait for another 24 months to apply. (Other branches will allow you to wait for just 12 months.)

Pag-IBIG Financing Tips on Membership:

For the complete list of document requirements, please check this article.

Your Age

  • You must not be more than 65 years old at the time of loan application.
  • You must not be more than 70 years old at the date of maturity.
  • You must be insurable.

Advanced age really is a hindrance to getting a housing loan. And take note that this is true whether you are using Pag-IBIG or any Bank.

Pag-IBIG Financing Tip: If you can afford it, apply for a housing at a young age.

Your Capacity To Pay

Pag-IBIG Housing Loan InterestAs a general rule, your monthly amortization should not exceed one-third of your gross income. This is the rule used by many financial institutions when qualifying a loan applicant.

But when it comes to Pag-IBIG Financing, your monthly amortization (principal + interest) should not be more than 40% of your Net Disposable Income.

Actually, there is a table that you can use to determine much loan amount you can get given your income, contributions and loan term. To see the Table, please refer to the article on “How Your Income And Contributions Affect Your Housing Loan Entitlement”.

Pag-IBIG Financing Tips:

  • Have your finances in order by saving enough for the Down Payment (or Equity).
  • You need to show some proof of income. Prepare the following documents: Pay Slips, Income Statements, Employment Contract (with indicated salary).
  • Learn about the 5’s of Credit
  • If your income is insufficient, you may take on a relative (within the second civil degree of consanguinity) or your spouse and tack-in your contributions then apply for a housing loan.

Other Pag-IBIG Loans

  • You are only allowed one Housing Loan at a time. If you want to take another one, you have to pay your existing loan.
  • If you have previously availed of the housing loan, make sure that it was not foreclosed, cancelled, bought back, or subjected to dacion en pago.
  • If you have an outstanding Multi-Purpose Loan, your payments must be updated and it must not be in arrears at the time of application.

It is important that you take note of the information presented here before you apply for a housing loan from Pag-IBIG.

And if you are disqualified for some reasons, please remember that Pag-IBIG is not the only Home Financing option available. Or, you may want to try applying again in the future. Your loan application may be approved by that time.

    We would like to apply a loan for a lot that we wanted to get. But the thing is I am currently in Canada and wanting to apply for a loan so we could take advantage of the current promotion the lot agent offers.

    Is it possible po ba to apply a loan even if the member is currently abroad? What requirements do I need? How can I apply?

    Thanks and I appreciate your prompt response.

  • Arlon

    Is the % of the amount loaned calculated per annum or it’s a monthly amortization (i.e. 2M = 10.5%)? ~ Arlon of DSFH

  • ricardo pagas

    gud day ask q lang po yung loan q last 2005 pa as of now nd q pa nbayaran magkano n po ba ang interest at pwde po ba ng installment o 1 tym payment plz reply at my email add tnx

  • admin

    As for your down payment, it is still covered by the policies of the developer, so you may coordinate with them.

    As for your loan, on of the most important requirements when applying for a home loan is the proof of income. And this usually means your employment or business status.

    Yes, it’s possible and your agent should be able to assist you on this. First thing is, you need to be an active member. Secondly, you or your representative shoudld attend the loan seminar. From there you can apply for a loan and then wait for the approval.

    Good question. I’ll be writing another article on this one because it’s really better explained in details with figures.

    Yes, because that was just a rental agreement you had with Pag-IBIG. It should not affect your loan application at all.

    Yes, as long as that lot is considered residential. The best thing that you can do is to attend the Housing Loan Seminar.

    I think paying the 24 months will post that much of a problem for you. The waiting period could take only about 12 months. But please inquire this at the Pag-IBIG Branch wher you are applying for a home loan.

    Regarding your other question on changing your contributions, you may also do that anytime.

    He needs to be an active member. As for the loan amount, please check on this article.

    Yes, you can simply execute a contract of sale for the said lot.

    Please check first the status of that loan. I believe it’s a multi-purpose loan and maybe part of your overall TAV is being taken
    to pay for your dues.

    YES… You just need to reactivate your membership.

    Please check this article

    Please check that one at the Pag-IBIG Office.

    hi i would like to inquire if possible to apply loan for renovation,but the lot is not in my name but on my parents name

  • admin

    One of the ways you can be a member is to have your representative do it for you. You may have to execute a Special Power of Attorney.

    You may want to use an MPL Loan for that. It’s simpler and will not require a lot of documents.

    For married people, the signature of the husband is really necessary for the loan to be released and for the title to be registered.

    I have been employed by two companies for almost 5 years now. However, I have not accounted how much my total PAGIBIG contributions are already. Is there a way in which I can have this information (e.g., can I get it from my previous and current employers? Or I have to go to a PAGIBIG office?P?

    Many thanks!

  • Donaldo A. Villanueva

    Dear Sir/Ma’am,

    I am a Pag-IBIG member from 1995 to mid of 2005 using my name Donald A. Villanueva. I continue again my contribution from 2009 August up to present. My question is, Is there any problem if my first name that I used before is Donald and I am using now Donaldo? I am OFW here in Saudi Arabia. If there is, Please advice me what I have to do. Kindly reply on my email.
    Thank you very much.

  • del

    Mas maganda pa rin kung pupuntahan ang pagibig office near your place for all the infos you need. It was my first time to go there last week sa Makati branch for membership verification and supposed loan. All my questions answered. Staffs were polite and accomodating. May pila pero mabilis naman. For OFW’s, go to 6th floor.

  • sye aniga

    can my husband and i apply for separate housing loans, different properties? thanks

  • admin


    You are definitely right on that one. Please do it if you have the time. And better prepare your questions.

    You need to execute and affidavit verifying that those names are under the same person.

    YOu may want to have your contributions consolidated. Please request it personally at the office.

    Please refer to this article

  • Reniel Federiso

    I applied a housing loan in Las Palmas before i tooked the bare type then i decided to change it to semi complete with 1 bed room then the developer told me that my DP will increase because my loanable amount will decrease but it is ok for me i pay my DP in monthly basis in 6months. Now i ask them that i want to move-in to house i bought then they told me that my papers will submit in window 2 and to enable to process it i need to pay my full DP it will increase again because of the same reason, my loanable amount will decrease. My question is, is it possible that my loanable amount is decreasing? if yes, what is the reasons why it is decreasing? Please i need your help on this matter.

    thank you very much

  • oyie

    good day po. ngbabayad na po kami ng asawa ko ng downpayment para sa 2 unit ng bahay, worth 600k++ each. initially po, bank financing ang inaapply namin. kung sa pag-ibig po ba pwede po ba kami magloan ng 2 unit?

  • admin

    I’m putting this answer on top of everyone else because, that’s a good question you have. Take note that when you apply for a loan, the lender (Pag-IBIG Fund in this case) will:

    • conduct an assessment of the property’s value (appraise it)
    • screen you as an applicant for your capacity to pay
    • determine the loan eligibility based on these

    That’s also possible. If each of you is qualified, then no problem.

    When applying for a loan, it is very important that you can convince them of your capacity to pay. That usually means, a steady source of income that is documented.

    YOu can request it from any Pag-IBIG Branch.

    Please re-read the article to check if you are qualified for a loan.

    Yes, you can combine as one and then apply for a single loan.

    Sorry but Pag-IBIG doesn’t grant a housing loan anymore to those who have a history of foreclosure.

    you have to personally do it at the Pag-IBIG office.

  • admin

    Please check this link for the requirements :

    There are really a lot of factors to consider and just because you applied for a loan doesn’t mean you are guaranteed to get it.


    1. you need to be an active member and of good standing.
    2. make sure that you have proof of income.
    3. attend the loan counselling seminar.

    The principal and co-borrower have to be any of the following: parent-child, or between siblings, or husband-wife.

  • Lorraine

    Hi, I’ve been in 5 companies already which are from different places in Metro Manila since 2005. Is it possible to get all my contributions record in Pag-ibig Makati office (Atrium), since I just got aware that I should have asked for that with my previous employers? Also, I am not aware of my Pag-ibig fund memebership number or do I really have that? I would like to know all of these since I was not able to continue my contributions for more tham 3 yrs already and would like to reactive it. Please advice. Tnx!

  • Rachel Santos

    Dear Mr. Admin,

    Your site is very helpful!

    Do you have any article on properties which used to have legal “issues”. We are buying a property na nagkaroon ng case because the owner used it as a collateral. He already paid for it though and there was already a court decision na naka award na sa kanya uli ang property. By these consequences, meron tatak yung TCT and I heared Pag Ibig does not accept TCT na may nka tatak.

    Your inputs and recommended articles to read will be very helpful.

    Much thanks and regards,


  • admin

    You can do it from the Makati Branch and then they should be the one to coordinate it with the other branches. It may take them a while to do this is since there is no centralized databased system in place yet for the whole agency to use.

    As for your Pag-IBIG ID Number, it should be given to you together with the Contributions Report that you are requesting. Meanwhile, only your name and the name of the different companies will be needed this time.

    As of now, we don’t have that kind of article yet. Maybe not in the future. We are trying to limit the discussions on this website on the issues revolving around the Pag-IBIG Fund especially those that relate on membership and loans. My suggestion is for you to consult someone who is an expert on that topic.

    Pwede po ba mag-loan sa pag-ibig for rennovation of my house pero hindi po nakapangalan sa akin ung lupa kundi sa mother ko..

  • jeneth

    Good day,
    Tatanong ko lang po kung gano katagal ang proseso ng multipurpose loan? ano-ano ang mga requirements kapag halimbawa po ba na dati akong may work tapos wala na ngayon siguro almost 1 year ko nang di nahulugan yun makakapag loan pa po ba ako? ano pong mga req? thanks!

  • admin

    That’s possible, but you need to have a permission from your mom, because the land title will be used as collateral.

    Please take note that one of the important requirements in getting a loan is your proof of income. Without it, your qualification will be very slim.

  • jas

    can we collateralize our land title to have financial loan for us to buid a house. is it possible how can we avail?

  • Charles


    Will it be possible, at any chance, that I can apply for a loan even though I am not yet contributing or 24 months? I’ve been contributing in PAGIBIG for only 1 year.

  • admin

    Yes, a collateral is one of the important requirements for a Pag-IBIG housing loan.

    The minimum number of contributions is 24 months for you to be able qualified for the Pag-IBIG Housing Loan Program.

    hi! ask ko lang po, im planning to purchase a lot worth 380,000. possible po ba na mas mataas ang appraisal ng pagibig kaysa sa seller’s price na 380k? if yes, for example pagibig appraised it for 450,000, are they going to lend me 450,000 instead of 380,000.00?
    On the other hand, if pagibig appraised it on a lower amount…lets say 300,000. Does it mean that I have to find another means even if my capacity to pay is capable of 500,000? thanks po!

    i have a friend n teacher but she resigend last mar, she wants to aplly for salary loan is she entitled kahit wala cyang work now but she is nagrereview for board exam,who will sign sa part ng employer?thanks a lot

  • admin

    One thing she should consider is how to pay for that loan that she is planning to get. If Pag-IBIG detect that she is
    not capable of paying it, then it’s futile to even apply for one, because it will be a negative right from the start.

    The maximum housing loan that can be granted to a member is P 3M. Please check with your developer if that project is okay for Pag-IBIG Housing Loan. The developer should know.

    Yes absolutely.

    You need to check it from the office of Pag-IBIG where she got the loan.

    Yes, you can provided you remain an active contributor to the Pag-IBIG Fund.

    @jen [#58]:
    You have already answered both of your questions. :-) Yes you are correct on both.

    Please refer to this article for the details about your membership:

    Same answer, please read the article on Voluntary Membership to the Pag-IBIG Fund.

    Please take note that there are other factors that they will consider before your loan is granted.

    YOur previous contributions will never be lost. You may continue paying for it even if you are already based there in Abu Dhabi.

    Good Day!
    Tanong ko lang po pwede ko po ba ipa check sa inyo yung application namin kasi sobrang tagal na po kami naghihintay. ang alam ko po kasi 2-3 weeks lang malalaman mo na ang result yung samin kasi 2 years na tpos nung april nagpa update sila ng requirements. until now, wala pa rin result kapag tumatawag ako sa Filinvest ang sinasabi wala pa daw kayo pino forward na letter para sa application nmin. nakakainip na po kasi dahil ang tagal tagal n nmin naghihintay. ang tita ko nga po 3mo’s lng lilipat n sila. kaya dko maintindihan kung san me problema kung sa Filinvest b or sa Pagibig. Conssesa Sagun po ang name ng sister ko yun yung nag aapply ng housing loan, Sunrise Place ang name ng subdivision. thanks po!

    Hi Admin,

    Nag housing-loan ako noong 2004. Na grant ung loan. Pero hindi kami tumira sa ni-loan naming bahay, kc nagkaroon ng financial problem, in-short, hindi ako naka-hulog ng amortization.

    1. Pwede pa ba mag loan?
    2. Bakit merong buy-back ang developer kung kung na pwedeng mag-housing loan ulit?
    3. Bakit pinapayagan ng PAG-IBIG ang Buy-Back sa developer?


    Good day, ask ko lang po paano ako makakapagloan my binibenta kc sameng house & lot 900t lang sayang po kc dhil manila gusto ko po sana iloan through pag-ibig, nandito po kasi ako sa abroad pede ko po ba ipaprocess sa taong pinagkakatiwalaan ko?anu po ang mga documents na kailangan?

  • admin

    I’m not sure I understand your meaning of surrender. That normally means you are not continuing your loan anymore and that Pag-IBIG has to take the collateral and FREE you of your loan obligations. Which means also that you can take housing loan any further.

    Remember that the loan amount also depends on your capacity to pay and your income. Please read this article to know more:

  • marlita balimbin

    good day! magkano po ba ang first loan para sa short term loan?

  • Arian


    Is there a Pre Approval process for Pag-Ibig? Is there like a form where I could submit to Pag-Ibig to check how much is my loanable amount? I do understand the table, but I’d like to have it pre-approved by Pag-Ibig before I go ahead with the actual application.

  • Eric

    good day! ask ko lang, paano mag apply ng pagibig kasi andito ako sa abu dhabi gusto ko sana kumuha. im only 23 years old. am i qualified? thank you.

  • admin

    The MPL Loan Amount depends on your TAV. Please refer to the article that discusses the Multi-Purpose Loan.

    Yes, you can be pre-approved once you attend the Housing Loan Seminar.

    Please re-read the article above to know the factors involved in the pre-qualification process.

    me and my girlfriend were planning to get a house thru pag ibig housing .. were not married yet but we will in the next 2 years.. we have monthly basic salary of 18k a month .. we already have savings and can pay already the downpayment and equity of the house were planning to get.. the house worth 700k.. do you think pag ibig will approve if we gonna loan… ty

  • admin

    At your current situation, you can’t be principal/co-borrower for the other.

    It loan amount will be release on a per progress basis. First, you apply for a housing loan and then wait for an approval. Once approved, you need to personally finance the initial construction, which is roughly 30% of the project cost, before Pag-IBIG will release your first loan amount installment.

    Yes, sure.

    Sorry, but you are not allowed to get a loan anymore once you experienced a property that was bought back by the developer.
    The Buy-Back Gurantee is a safety net implemented by the Pag-IBIG Fund to make sure that the borrowers are eligible to really pay the loan.

  • Ben.L

    Good pm..gusto ko pong malaman kung pwede po akong ma avail ng loan. ofw po ako and retired 61 years..and a SSS member and how i can get the pag ibig loan application loan.

    It’s possible to retire your loan earlier. Please read this for more details:

  • admin

    It’s called home equity loan. But Pag-IBIG doesn’t allow that at the moment. Please check with the banks in your area if they have that kind of loan.

  • may a.

    we are planning to avail of your housing loan but we head that you do not accept titles whose mother title is homestead. can i get a confirmation to this? anyway, the title was transferred to his daughter and to us. thanks!!

  • Jaime

    I am an ofw for 10 years in many countries. I have just applied as POP member here in Saudi Arabia last Sept. 2010. yesterday, I went in Pag ibig branch office here in Al Khobar to continue may contribution (US10) from Oct.2010 till December 2012. I am planning to apply for house construction in a lot given to me by my parents when I go vacation on December. My questions are: 1)how is the process for house construction since I am planning to loan an amount of 800 thousand, is the lot enough to be a collateral? 2) how long is the processing since I will be staying in the Phils. for only 1 month, can my wife authorized to take care everything when I go back here in KSA? 3) if ever my loan was approved, are they going to give the whole amount of 800 thousand or in installment basis?
    Thanks a lot admin..and more power!

  • admin

    Yes, that’s right. Not all kinds of titles are accepted.

    Please refer to this link:

    Yes, you should ask your wife to take care of this once you go back abroad.

  • geraldine

    im a member of pag ibig and i just pay already 2 years for the 300 piso monthly contribution i want to ask f pwde na po aqng maghousing loan.

  • japs10boy

    My objective is to be able to obtain a housing loan.

    My situation is that I have been moving companies and also was not active in my pag-ibig payments for quite some time already:

    1997-1998 Pag-ibig contributions paid.
    1999-2002 Pag-ibig contributions paid.
    2003-2012 No payment/contributions made.

    1. How do I find out what is my old pag-ibig number from 1997-2002?
    2. Is there a way to consolidate the old pag-ibig number with the new one generated by the new central IT system? How is this done?
    3. Will I be able to secure a housing loan given that I have been able to provide payments from 1997-2002?

    Thank you.

    • admin


      To be able to get a housing loan, you only have to reactivate your membership and you have to be an active member for 24 months. Please visit the branch where you want to pay for your contributions and request them to consolidate your past contributions.

      • japs10boy

        Thanks for the prompt reply.

        Final question:
        What if the 1997-2002 contributions were done at a different Pag-ibig branch (e.g. Pasig city) and the branch for >2012 to-be contributions would be in Makati? Would a pag-ibig branch in Makati have access to my old Pag-ibig number as well as old contribution records from 1997-2002 OR do I need to go first to Pasig city branch to get my old Pag-ibig number/contribution records before going to Makati branch?

        • admin


          They have to request it from the other branch. All you have to do is supply them the right information about your past employments. This may take time, though.

          But of course, it would help if you can also help in the processing of your records.

    hi admin,

    please assist me in my present situation and this is how it goes:
    i already have more than 24 months contribution since 1996, but stopped for several years and now employed again, i resumed my contribution. i am presently renting a house and the owner is offering the house for sale worth 1.5million. but i have no spot cash in buying the said house, can pag-ibig assist me on this matter? here are some factors for consideration:
    a) my income is only 19thousand pesos monthly, and having a net income of 16thou pesos.
    b) my dad is an OFW but aging of 64 years old, but he has the capacity to pay as he is receiving a salary of 3,000USD.
    c) my dad has a passbook of pagibig for OFW workers and paid a total of 5thou pesos, breakdown as 200 pesos (membership) plus 4,800 (for 24 months) but for now he stopped paying.

    admin, from the facts above, am i qualified to avail housing loan for 1.5Million to buy the present house i am residing? if yes, is my dad qualified to be the AGGREGATE– or my co-maker for that loan REGARDLESS of his 64 years old age? if yes, what are the requirements on my part and on my dad’s part- and on the part of the seller?

    thanks a lot. more power.

  • Joann

    Hi Admin,
    Is there any way I can avail of home improvement loan even if the title is named to my Parents? Hope you can give clarifications.

    • admin


      The title must be in the name of the borrower.

  • Lery

    Hello Admin,

    Good day. I would like to inquire regarding my husband’s qualification to a housing loan.

    I just found out that he has an outstanding MPL balance of 2.5k due as far back as 2010. We have paid this through Pagibig office already.

    I was just wondering if this could affect our application for a housing loan? I will be the principal borrower (my MPL is updated and will be paid in full soon) and he will be my co-borrower.

    Hoping for your reply. Thank you.

    • admin

      Hi Lery,

      No, it won’t affect the housing loan application.

    Hi Admin,

    Would a bad credit card history affect a housing loan application? Do you do CI based on this or the capacity of pay, property and PIF records alone? Please enlighten me. My husband has a cancelled credit card in 2005 and he is trying to settle this bit by bit but i know his name is tarnished already by this credit history. Thank you.

    Good day!

    I already have an approved housing loan year 2002 and started with my mothly payment with your office. Unfortunately, i became broke and failed to continue my payments and the unit became foreclosed. At around year 2004, i asked your office to recompute for settlement of my loan which comes around 70k plus including attorneys fee. etc. etc. But still i was not able to settle such a big amount.
    Now, I am presently employed with a good company and financially stable, Will the company give resettlement and can I apply for a new housing loan?

    • admin


      You can still have your house back if you settle all the payment dues and provided the house is still in the hands of the Pag-IBIG Fund.
