Guide On How To Claim Your Pag-IBIG Contributions.

However, there are certain criteria a Pag-IBIG member needs to satisfy before he or she is considered eligible to withdraw his or her contribution. Below is the complete guide to claiming your Pag-IBIG contribution.

First, you need to know if you are eligible in claiming your Pag-IBIG savings or Provident Benefits Claim. Read on!

1. Membership Maturity

You've paid your Pag-IBIG contributions for at least 20 years, equivalent to 240 monthly payments. If you're a Pag-IBIG Overseas Program (POP) member, you can claim your contributions at the end of five, 10, 15, or 20 years, depending on the option you chose during your membership registration. Check this guide to learn the ways to check your Pag-IBIG contribution payments.

2. Retirement

When you reach 65 years old, you'll be under compulsory retirement and thus eligible to claim your Pag-IBIG contributions. You may retire earlier at age 60, from the SSS, GSIS, or government service, or under your private employer's retirement plan, as long as you're at least 45 years old.

3. Permanent Total Disability or Insanity

Pag-IBIG members with physical and/or mental disability due to an illness or injury, causing inability to work or run a business, may apply for Provident Benefits Claim.

4. Separation from Service due to Health Reasons

If you can no longer work because of severe health conditions, you can make a claim for your Pag-IBIG contributions. You need a doctor's certification for this.


5. Permanent Departure from the Philippines

You can withdraw your Pag-IBIG savings before you leave the Philippines to live permanently abroad. But you have to show proof that your new country of residence has allowed you to live there indefinitely.

6. Death

For deceased Pag-IBIG members, their heirs, authorized representatives, or any appointed court administrator or executor can file the application for Provident Benefits Claim.
