What is the Pag-IBIG Fund?
Pag-IBIG is the shortened version of the Pag-IBIG (Pagtutulungan sa Kinabukasan: Ikaw, Bangko, Industriya, at Gobyerno) Fund. It is also known as the Home Development Mutual Fund (HDMF). As such, the Pag-IBIG contribution is also the HDMF contribution table.
Simply, it is a savings program initiated by the government. Furthermore, its mandate mainly aims to help the Filipino people save up for their own homes or shelter.
The HDMF Law of 2009, which was signed by then president Gloria Macapagal Arroyo, mandates that all employees who are covered by SSS and GSIS, uniformed personnel of the AFP, PNP, BJMP, and BFP, and Filipinos with foreign employers have a membership with the Pag-IBIG Fund program.
2023 Contribution for Members
The Board of Trustees has set the contribution rates at a minimum of 1% and a maximum of 2% of their monthly income for members without employers. The same is also true for OFWs whose employers are not under mandatory coverage.
Furthermore, employed individuals and OFWs whose employers are under mandatory coverage have a contribution rate of 3%. Additionally, the maximum is 4% of the monthly compensation, which is shared between the employee and the employer.
The maximum amount of monthly compensation or income considered on which the contribution rate is applied is Php 5,000. In addition, members whose monthly salaries or income exceed Php 5,000 still have their total contribution rate at 4% of Php 5,000.
2024 Contribution for Members
This 2024, the fund aims to increase its monthly fund salary (MFS) from Php 5,000 to Php 10,000. As a result, the contribution rates will also double, assuming the employee earns at least Php 10,000 and above every month.
Monthly contribution for Employers, Employees, and OFWs with mandatory coverage
For regular employers and employees, and OFWs with mandatory coverage whose monthly salary is Php 1,500 or less, the total contribution is computed at 3% of the monthly salary, with the employer paying for the 2% and the employee paying for the 1%.
For those earning more than Php 1,500, the total contribution rate is set at 4% of the monthly salary, with the employer and the employee paying 2% each.
Monthly contribution for Self-Employed Individuals
Mandatory HDMF coverage for Self-employed individuals starts with those earning at least Php 1,000 per month. The contribution rate for self-employed individuals is set at 1% of their monthly income for those earning Php 1,500 or less. Furthermore, it is 2% for those making greater than Php 1,500.
Monthly contribution for OFWs not under mandatory coverage
Overseas Filipino Workers whose employers are not under mandatory HDMF coverage must pay 2% of their monthly compensation as their monthly HDMF contribution.
Monthly Contribution for Non-working Spouse
Non-working Spouse members’ contribution depends on their spouses’ monthly compensation. Suppose half of the spouse’s monthly compensation is less than or equal to Php 1,500. In that case, the member has to pay 1% of half the amount of their spouse’s salary. If half the spouse’s compensation exceeds Php 1,500, the member must pay 2% of that amount.
Monthly Contribution for Kasambahays
Kasambahay members whose monthly compensations fall below Php 5,000 have their total contributions paid by their employers. However, those earning Php 5,000 and above share the contribution with their employers in equal halves.
Employers of kasambahays earning Php 1,500 or less monthly pay 3% of their employees’ monthly compensations, while those earning more than Php 1,500 but less than Php 5,000 pay 4% of their employees’ monthly payments.
Kasambahays, who make at least Php 5,000, pay half the total contribution, which is 2% of their monthly salary, while their employers pay the other 2%.
HDMF offers a good number of services and programs for its members to help them save up. Furthermore, it is the same for acquiring, preserving, or improving their houses. Here are the main programs and services.
Pag-IBIG Fund Regular Savings
This is where the members’ regular monthly savings go. Regular savings are subject to Pag-IBIG Regular Savings Dividend Rates each year. As such, bigger savings guarantee higher dividends to earn.
Regular Savings reach maturity after 20 years but may be withdrawn earlier due to reasons acknowledged by Pag-IBIG. This includes cases like retirement, permanent disability, or critical illness.

Modified Pag-IBIG 2 (MP2) Savings
MP2 savings is a special savings program of Pag-IBIG that allows members to save more and earn higher dividends aside from their regular savings. These savings mature after five (5) years, but can also be withdrawn prematurely due to reasons acknowledged by Pag-IBIG.
MP2 savings earn a higher dividend rate than regular savings. It is also possible to open several MP2 savings accounts simultaneously.

How do members pay for their contributions?
There are several ways for Pag-IBIG members to pay their monthly contributions. Employed members get their contributions deducted from their salaries for their regular savings. Employers are mandated to remit the deducted amount and their share of the contribution to Pag-IBIG on the assigned date; otherwise, a penalty will be incurred.
Suppose the member has loans or other savings accounts opened (like MP2). In that case, the member may opt to have their employer deduct the appropriate amount from their salary or pay them separately by themself.
Self-employed and voluntary members must pay their contributions themselves. Below are some of the ways they can make their payments.
Members who want to give their contributions in cash may go to any Pag-IBIG branch and do so. To pay their contribution, they must remember to have their Pag-IBIG MID Number or a printed Member Data Form (MDF).
The Virtual Pag-IBIG allows members to make their payments online. However, the member must first have an account with the Virtual Pag-IBIG. Furthermore, Virtual Pag-IBIG enables members to pay using credit or debit cards or E-wallet accounts like GCash or Paymaya.
Accredited Payment Centers
Members may also visit payment centers authorized by Pag-IBIG to collect the members’ contributions. The member must have their Pag-IBIG MID Number (or MP2 account number if paying for MP2) to have their contribution credited to their account. Additionally, there are accredited payment centers like Bayad Center, M Lhuiller, and SM Bills Payment counters.
GCash, Paymaya, and other E-wallets
Another way to pay the contributions is to use e-wallets like GCash. A member must, of course, have a registered and verified account with their chosen e-wallet and sufficient account balance along with their Pag-IBIG MID number or MP2 account number.
Members of Pag-IBIG can use the ECPay Online Portal to make their contributions. But first, the member must register their mobile number with the ECPay Online Portal.
In addition, they must fill out all required fields on the form and validate their Pag-IBIG MID Number or MP2 Account Number, and choose to pay at 7-Eleven.
After that, a screenshot or printed copy of the resulting 7-Eleven instruction page must be presented to the 7-Eleven counter and the appropriate amount within 24 hours of the ECPay transaction to validate the contribution.
OFWs who pay their contributions by themselves may pay through Overseas Remittance Channels.
