Are you a regular employee who always wonder how that Pag-IBIG deduction got in to your pay slip? Or you don’t really care since it is as normal and as inescapable as the income tax?
This article shows you how to become a member of the Pag-IBIG Fund if you are an employee here in the Philippines.
Pag-IBIG Membership For Employees
Earning at least P 4,000 a month? Thanks to Republic Act 7742, membership to the Pag-IBIG Fund has become mandatory for all employees covered by the Social Security System (SSS).
That’s right, all you have to show is you are earning a minimum of PhP 4,000 and you are working in a legitimate company, then you can be a member of the Pag-IBIG Fund.
As for employees earning less than P 4,000 a month, membership to the Pag-IBIG Fund is only voluntary.
So How Do You Exactly Become A Member Of Pag-IBIG Fund?
In most cases, you don’t even have to bother about it since your employer will file your membership to the Pag-IBIG Fund and remit your contributions on your behalf.
In a perfect world, everything is taken care of. In reality, that’s not always the case.
If your company won’t even bother, you can always be in control take the necessary steps yourself. This is especially true if you are considering getting a housing loan anytime soon. You want to show them that you have “perfect contributions” and is ready to take a loan.
Here are some guidelines:
- Locate the Pag-IBIG branch that is nearest to your place of work. Usually, this is the regional office of Pag-IBIG Fund.
- Proceed to the Marketing and Enforcement Division of the concerned branch.
- Request for a copy of the Membership Registration/Remittance Form (MRRF).
- Accomplish and submit two copies of the MRRF together with the following supporting documents to the Marketing and Enforcement Division:
- Members’ Data Form (MDF)
- Certificate of SSS Coverage and Compliance (for the current year), if private employer
- GSIS Certificate of Membership, if government employer
Pag-IBIG For Employers
Yes, local employers are taking part in contributing to “your membership.” That’s why some of them (the small businesses, especially) feel a little bit itchy when complying to this mandate.
A problem arises when your company is not even a member of Pag-IBIG. (And this is not uncommon for very small business outfits.) In that case, here are some guidelines for employers.
- Accomplish two copies of the Membership Registration/Remittance Form (M1-1).
- Prepare the following documents (2 photocopies):
- SEC registration or the company’s DTI and SSS registration
- R3 and R1A forms (SSS registration and remittance forms)
- Present all documents (M1-1, Registration and SSS forms) to the Marketing Division of the concerned Pag-IBIG branch office for verification (bring all originals for authentication). Secure a referral slip from the Marketing staff.
- Proceed to the office’s Cash Division for payment of the first monthly remittance.
- Submit the referral slip prepared by the Marketing staff and all verified documents to the cashier.
- Succeeding remittance dates shall depend on the schedule of payment of the office. Accomplished M1-1 shall serve as the remittance form for succeeding payments.
- Submit to the Marketing office two copies of the accomplished Member’s Data Forms (MDF) of all qualified employees to the Marketing Division on the second month after the first payment of contributions.
The names of newly-hired employees, who are covered by RA 7742, should be included in the accomplished M1-1 form and their corresponding contributions duly remitted to the Fund. The accomplished MDF of the new employees shall be submitted on the following month.
For Sole Proprietorship
- DTI Registration
- Mayor’s Permit/ Business Permit
- SEC Registration
- Articles of Partnership/Incorporation and By-laws
- The original copy of the documents shall be presented for authentication.
- Upon submission of complete documents, the Marketing and Enforcement Division shall issue the Payment Order Form
- Proceed to the Cash and Administrative Services Division and pay the 1st monthly membership contributions (MC).
- Upon payment, present the Pag-IBIG Fund Receipt (PFR) to the Marketing and Enforcement Division.
Summary of Pag-IBIG Fund Membership For Employees
Once you have verified your membership to the Pag-IBIG Fund, your employer should be able remit your monthly contributions (which is deducted from your salary) to the Fund since your employer also acts as a collection agent of the Fund.

Really good work about this website was done. Keep trying more – thanks!
rizabel galdones says
how can and will know my pag-ibig number thru a particular site? the pag-ibig site is not functional.
At the moment, Pag-IBIG doesn’t have that facility yet.
You can do any of these to obtain your ID number:
Phone the nearest Pag-IBIG Office / branch
Personally visit the office
If you are not here in the Philippines, issue an authority to someone and have him/her go to Pag-IBIG on your behalf
Reyna Jackson says
Where I can apply for Pag-ibig membeship? I’m currently living overseas Okinawa Japan. I am an immigrant of United States.
At the moment, Pag-IBIG has no Office / Contact yet in Okinawa. It’s best if you can drop by or contact the staff of Pag-IBIG in-charged with the Overseas Program.
Here is a useful link ==>> Pag-IBIG Fund Overseas Program International Directory.
Please follow the link to see the presence of Pag-IBIG Fund in key cities worldwide.
I am currently staying abroad. How could I become a member?
Hi Reyna and Daffodil,
You need to check if there is a branch of Pag-IBIG there in your host country.
If there is none, you can assign someone from the Philippines to pay for your membership to the Pag-IBIG Fund office.

Hi, I’ve been working since year 2006, got deducted on Pag ibig monthly of worth P100.00. My question is, how do i know my contribution?My former employer said that, its automatic to be deducted when your are a member of SSS. Since this year, my recent employer, i sign-up a Pag-ibig form but i have’nt a number yet. Does it mean that my contribution from my former employers are not remitted to PAG-IBIG?
You can check it with Pag-IBIG. Go there have request a print out of all your contributions including those of your previous employers.
hi good day im working here in koreafor a garment factory im akorean ziticen my husband having a smallbusiness of his own i want to be a member of pag ibig can u please tell me what are the requaremnts and how to be a member i waiting for ur reply thanks
Pag-IBIG Membership is only open to Filipino Citizens.
Rogelio Balighot says
Hi, I just need to know some info. I used to be a member of PAG-IBIG Fund when I was in the Philippines. Now, I migrated to Australia and already become an Australian Citizen. How can I activate my AG-IBIG Fund membership? Thanks
First, you check request for a list of your contributions from any Pag-IBIG Fund Office — have them consolidate your payments. When you continue paying, these payments will just be added to all of your previous contribtions and you are once again active.
I am currently an active member of the fund and had availed of the housing loan but subsequently defaulted and the house was foreclosed. Am I still entitled to avail of the other loans, like the multi-purpose loan? I heard of some members, receiving cash surrender value of their policies. How can this be availed of?
Yes, you can still avail of the multi-purpose loan, though it will be difficult on your part since you have defaulted on your housing loan already.
I am a sole proprietorship, with 4 staff, Is there any minimum number of staff for a one company, to become a pag ibig member? I want my employee to have this benefit ( pag ibig) how can i register them? pls reply
It is now required for you to contribute to Pag-IBIG even if you only have one employee. There is an article here for employers, please check it.
Rona Samaniego says
I just would like to know on how to get my pag-ibig number if im already a member? Thank you!
Jonalyn G. Tingson says
Gud morning.. May I ask if what form i’m going to use if I have correction about my name. Thank You..
It is better that you proceed to the nearest office of Pag-IBIG since this one can’t be done online.
Ramon Michael Mababa says
Hello I just want to ask how can I retrieve my number. I work for a company in QC and the branch in my place of residence cannot verify if I am a member or not. My employer never gave me my number. Do I need to go to your branch on QC to verify this information. Thanks
Yes, that’s the best way to do it. Go to any Pag-IBIG Branch and then request for a hard copy of all your contributions from Day One till the last. The print-out should reflect your Pag-IBIG Number.
Sir/ Madam good day!
ano po ang mga requirements ng employer kung kukuhanan ng Pag-ibig yong mga employee?
hoping for your response
I think there is an article here that answers that question. That’s for employers and it’s really best if you can proceed to the Pag-IBIG Office if you are the one processing this on behalf of the company. My guess is that, your accounting or bookkeeper also knows how to handle this one.
hi im albert i just want to ask kng ilan years ang requirements para mkpghousing loan aq,member ako since january 2010,tnx and more power

You can do it at Pag-IBIG or Department of Labor or DTI.

You may visit any Pag-IBIG Office and then request a print-out of all your contributions. The staff there should be able to give you the correct forms to use when doing this request.

According to the requirements of the company to apply its employees as member to pag-ibig are the, R3 and R1A forms (SSS registration and remittance forms. what if, the company has not paid the initial months remittances say for like July, August, and September. Can we apply for the employees membership if the only remittance that the company has so far are for the months of October and December?

i was a member of HDMF my last contribution was march 2006.. and now i currently working as OFW in saudi arabia. And i want to continue may contribution. What should i do?
@corazon: The reservation fee is not dictated by Pag-IBIG, so it depends on the developer/seller.
@marge: you may want to call the attention of Pag-IBIG so that they can take appropriate action.
@mara: I’m not sure if getting a MPL is what you need really. Please read on the article about the Multi-Purpose Loan to know how much you can borrow.
@nora: same reply with @mara
@Jen: Thanks and there is no maximum payment; you can pay as much as you want.
@Maggi: Sorry, I don’t understand.
@marie: if she’s already retired, then she can withdraw her contributions all the TAV.
@jenny: Yes, nakakalito talaga ang Pag-IBIG. That’s why this website is created.
@anne: Yes you can continue anytime. your previous contributions will be combined with the newer ones.
@mharie: you simply pay for your new contributions to become active again.
Good morning po. active member po ako ng PAGIBIG Fund since 1997. Naghousing loan po ako in 1997 unluckily di ko po nabayaran ang housing loan at ang bahay ay naforeclosed. Ano po ba mangyari sa membership ko? makukuha ko pa ba ang contribution ko upon my retirement inspite of my housing loan default? Di na po ba ako puede magapply ng housing loan ulit? Salamat po.
@Leo: Please check the article on Foreclosure.
lorna cuesta says
hello, Ask ko lang po sana ung Email add nio sa pag ibig at ung contact person.. Please send it to my email add. Thank you po.
very informative site! my question is if i have a small business where my single employee is only working part-time and earning less than pHp 4k per month, do i need to inform pag-ibig this info?
the reason i’m asking is that i received a letter from pag-ibig that i need to remit my employees’ pag-ibig donations, but then from the article, it is the employee who should apply to be a voluntary member.
hope you can enlighten me with my query.
First, it’s not a donation, but a contribution. 😉 If the salary is less than 4k, you can safely ignore that letter.
good day po, pwede po bang makahingi ng employer’s data form FPF040 kasi hndi po ako mkahanap sa site nyo. tnx
paki send nlang po sa email add ko, tnx
jena may says

Your employer should be able to process this for you.
It’s best to do it at any Pag-IBIG office.
renelio mangubat ycot says
how can i update my loan balance thru online?
Hi!Good day!i need some clarification regarding this matter..i went at pag-ibig branch here in our area to get my pagibig number because it is one of the requirements of my employer, since it is my first time to apply in pagibig they told me to register online and print the MDR form then submit it to my employer..so i did the online registration..but when i’m already going to print the MDR, i noticed that my contact details was not written in the form even though i wrote it on the registration form before proceeding to the next step..what am i going to do regarding this matter?how can i put my contact details on my MDR form?also, is it okei if i choose “not yet employed” on membership category?since i’m still completing the other requirements and not yet signing any employment contract from my employer..thank you in advance! 🙂
It’s good that you pointed this out. Please just go on with whatever printable form what generated by the system. And yes, you can choose that “not yet employed” option.
Please try this link from the Pag-IBIG Website:
juvy salazar says
pwede po bang malaman ang pag-ibig number ko kc po nawala po yung card ko dahil natangay po ng baha.nakalimutan ko na po?salamat
You have to request it from any Pag-IBIG branch or better yet to the branch where you are currently based.
hi! magtatanong lang po kung pwede po bang gamitin ang pag-ibig housing loan to pay for a GSIS property? for sale na kasi yung house and lot. di na natuloy nung previous owner yung pagbabayad sa GSIS. we have plans of buying it, pwede kaya yung pag-ibig housing loan?
Gudpm. Gusto ko lng po malaman kung paano ako makakapagloan s Pag-ibig. marami po ko pinaggalingang company ung iba s kanila ay lumipat n… at hindi ko mahagilap. Panu po kaya ko makakapag-loan s pag-ibig?
pwede po bang malaman kung may online membership apllication ang Pag-ibig? panu dn po ako magkakaroon ng number nito?
You can find it by going to the Official Website of the Pag-IBIG Fund.
I think the first problem that you should address is your membership status withe Pag-IBIG. If you have the time, please go to the Pag-IBIG Office and have then consolidate all your contributions from the different companies you had.
Yes, but then this is going to be very complicated.

They told me that pag-ibig haven’t generated any numbers yet because they’re going to have unified I.D. with philhealth… i would wanted to know my contributions and when can i loan to and i can’t track all of my conrtibutions. Thank you so much.
hi! i asked pag-ibig to consolidate the payments I have made since 2005 because i am planning to apply for a loan. is there any way that i could verify my contributions online or via phone?
IM US CITIZEN NOW BUT IM A MEMBER OF POP. AM I STILL ALLOWED TO BE A MEMBER?
Yes, you were a member in the first place.
You have to check it again at the office where you made the request.
Please check your contributions at the office.
If you are an employee, your employer should be able to process it on your behalf. Otherwise, the best thing to do is to visit the office of Pag-IBIG.
It depends on many factors. The rule says, it has to be 24 months consecutive.
Please check it at the office where you applied for the MPL Loan.

How can I check my registration tracking number online?I was told by our HR personnel that I can check it online but I’m having a hard time finding it.And where can I get the security code because I only know my PAG-IBIG MDI NO. and it’s asking for a security code when I tried Updating Online.Thanks.

Ma. Doraine Con-ui says
Hi there. I’m currently working at a BPO company. When I applied for a Multi Purpose Loan, it was denied kasi 23months palang daw contribution ko. This is my 2nd company and I was hired sa first company ko July 2009, sabi ng friend ko from Pag-ibig San Fdo, may gap daw yung contribution ko, parang 2 surname lumalabas sa database nila which is CONUI and CON UI. What do I need to do?
i am currently working for a company and i was the one in charged for all the sss, pag-ibig contributions, etc. we just send our payments to pag-ibig thru a friend who is working for pag-ibig. my problem is that the company itself doesn’t even have its own pag-ibig number..as well as all its employees. is it really possible n may contribution kmi pero wlang pag-ibig number? ang sbi nung friend nmen n nagwowork sa pag-ibig hindi n raw kailangan un kc sss number nmin ang gngmit..is it true? please answer.
thank you in advance.!
How can I get my security code? I. Only know is my pagibig number. Pls rrply
Admin, ask ko lang when can i get my security code. Nag avail kc ako Via online application? thanks
@Ryan, @Jheed and @Mark:
Please email your concerns to firstname.lastname@example.org
Sorry to tell you, but friend is not the Pag-IBIG Fund. What if he/she transfers to another company?
For one, employers (or companies) are required to become members of the Pag-IBIG Fund also and are mandated to
contribute for the membership Funds of their employees.
You need to update your account information with them. Please visit the branch. After doing that, you may also want to have a consolidation of
all your contributions.
The only way to find that out is by requesting it from the branch where you think your contributions are recorded.
You are not alone. Pag-IBIG doesn’t really release an ID like the SSS do. But you should have a membership number on file there at the branch.
YOu may want to send an email to email@example.com.
you can do that at the branch that handles your husband’s account.
