3. Contribution before loan application - the member must also have made a one-month contribution within the previous six months before his or her loan application.

4. Default accounts - these types of accounts are not eligible for the Pag-IBIG salary loan. These include those who have default housing, existing MPL, or calamity loans.

8. Pag-IBIG loan form - Once you’re done with the requirements above, print the Multi-Purpose Loan form. Make sure to print the latest form to avoid issues once you file for a loan. 

9. Co-Maker’s signature - This is one of the most overlooked parts of those who are applying for a loan, so make sure you will not make the same mistake. 

On the form, find “PROMISSORY NOTE” and at the bottom of this area locate "Witnesses." Do not forget to let two people, either an officemate or a relative, with a different surname with yours, as witnesses, please see image below.




10. Certificate of Net Pay DetailsEven if you have your payslips with you, let your HR fill out the “CERTIFICATE OF NET PAY” at the back of your form.

The interest rate on your loan is 10.75% of the total loanable amount. The interest is calculated per annum which is then divided into 24 months.
