What is a Pag-IBIG Multi-Purpose Loan?
The Pag-IBIG Multi-Purpose Loan is a cash assistance program every Pag-IBIG member can avail of. If you’re a qualified member, you can borrow up to 80% of your Pag-IBIG regular savings and have your loan processed in as fast as two days.
Since this is a multi-purpose loan, you can use it to pay for the following:
- Home improvement
- Business capital
- Medical expenses
- Education-related expenses like tuition and miscellaneous fees
- Home appliances and furniture
- Utility bills
- Credit card balances
- Special events
How to Compute Pag-IBIG Multi-Purpose Loan Amount
How much is the first salary loan in Pag-IBIG? Calculations for the Pag-IBIG Multi-Purpose Loan amount are made according to the individual's membership term, multiplied by their monthly contribution. From there, a 60% loan factor is applied.
For example, an individual who has been a Pag-IBIG member for 24 months can only loan ₱2,880. The computation is as follows:
24 months (total Pag-IBIG membership contribution) x ₱200 (monthly contribution) x .60
The amount you can loan increases as your monthly contributions increase, and so does the loan factor. An employee who has made contributions for 120 months or more can take out a loan at an 80% factor.
