About Pag-IBIG Savings Claim

The Pag-IBIG Savings Claim is for mandatory and voluntary members qualified to withdraw their total contributions plus the dividends earned by their accounts over the years. It consists of the members’ monthly contributions from salary deductions or voluntary contributions. Whether employed or unemployed, eligible members can claim their Pag-IBIG Savings, given they have at least 180 or 240 monthly contributions and meet the terms and conditions.

Under this program, members can apply for the following Pag-IBIG Savings Claim:

  • Members without any outstanding loan from Pag-IBIG before claiming benefits
  • Members with at least 180 monthly contributions

Note: Pag-IBIG will only approve applications for Optional Withdrawal for members who have contributed continuously without any gaps during employment. Pag-IBIG will automatically decline your application for the claim if you’ve skipped several contributions despite being a member for 18 years.
