Most visitors coming to this website are Overseas Filipino Workers based from different places abroad. And many of them are asking about the online facilities of the Pag-IBIG Fund (the official website is at http://www.pagibigfund.gov.ph) so they can do some transactions anywhere they are comfortable. Some of the most common questions we encounter are listed below.
- I want to become a member of the Pag-IBIG Fund. Can I do it online? Do you have an online form that I can fill up and send back to you?
- Can I apply for A Housing Loan Online?
- May I request for my Pag-IBIG ID Number? Please send it through email.
- How will I know about my past contributions?
- Can I send my payments (contributions/amortizations) online?
Of course these are valid concerns as legitimate members of the Pag-IBIG Fund.
In this article, we’ll address each of these questions.
#1. Membership Application: I want to become a member of the Pag-IBIG Fund. Can I do it online? Do you have an online form that I can fill up and send back to you?
Yes, this is possible. Simply download Member’s Data Form. Print two copies and send back to the Pag-IBIG Fund.
While doing that is very convenient, the good ole way of actually handing it to the office is still best way to do it. That way, you get someone to give you an acknowledgment that your form has been received.
The most ideal way of doing it should be to just fill-up and online form — as opposed to downloading it — and waiting for a verification via email. Unfortunately, this one doesn’t exist yet. So, let’s make the best use of this one.

#2. Online Loan Application: Can I apply for A Housing Loan Online?
Just like the new member’s concern stated in #1, applying for a housing loan online still involves downloading an application form. Actually, there are other forms available on the website that are related to Pag-IBIG Loans. Here is one that you can use for the Housing Loan
The best way you can do with that form is to first study it. That should give you an idea of the documents and financial information required of you. Of course, the application will only be honored once submit it together with your signature.

#3. About Pag-IBIG ID: May I request for my Pag-IBIG ID Number? Please send it through email.
Sorry, but you have to personally go to the office and request for your Pag-IBIG ID Number. Please refer to #4 on how to best approach this concern.
#4. Contributions: How will I know about my past contributions?
You may want to proceed to the nearest Pag-IBIG Office and approach the staff that you want to consolidate all your contributions. You will then be given a form that you need to fill up.
The result of this might take some time especially for those who are transferring from one employer to another or those who have changed their memberships, say from employee to self-employed.
Please be patient and follow-up your inquiry at the concerned Department from time to time.
Once you get the result, you should be able to view a list of your contributions and that of your past employers. Plus, take note, the document should bear your Pag-IBIG ID Number.

#5. Online Payment: Can I send my payments (contributions/amortizations) online?
Unfortunately, this is not possible yet. The closest way to accomplish this is to open an account with a Philippine Bank that accepts Pag-IBIG Payments. You can then arrange with the bank to execute an auto-debit setup from your account to Pag-IBIG Fund to pay for your contributions or obligations.
