The new electronic registration form was recently launched by the Home Development Mutual Fund (Pag-IBIG Fund), to facilitate the applications of new members. It can be accessed by the public through their website anywhere, anytime.
The Member’s Data Form (MDF) is available at http://www.pagibigfund.gov.ph/benpromembership.aspx. It must be printed in two copies before submitting directly to the Pag-IBIG office or thru the employer, she said.
The forms bear a Registration Tracking Number (RTN), which will be assigned to the client as a temporary account number while the application is undergoing verification, which usually lasts up to three weeks. After submitting the form, the applicant will then receive a confirmation of the application thru text. The new members will also get a permanent Pag-IBIG Membership ID to avail of its services.
De Vera advised clients to keep their account numbers handy when they transact as the Pag-IBIG Fund no longer accepts payment from clients without their membership number.
Payment of contributions is still done manually but the office is already finding ways to automate that also, De Vera added.
