The Philippines is vulnerable to natural calamities like volcanic eruptions, storm surges, flooding, landslides, and the like. With that said, Filipinos are exposed to damaging incidents and severe distress and losses, especially those in affected areas. Hence, the Pag-IBIG Fund Calamity Loan seeks to provide immediate financial aid to affected Pag-IBIG Fund members in calamity-stricken areas. So now, let’s know more about the loan program, the qualifications, and the steps to applying online.

Pag-IBIG Fund Calamity Loan

As mentioned, the Pag-IBIG Fund Calamity Loan seeks to provide immediate financial aid to affected Pag-IBIG Fund members in calamity-stricken areas as declared by the Office of the President or the Sangguniang Bayan.

The Pag-lBIG Fund’s Calamity Loan Program shall be limited only to man-made hazards and any of the following naturally-occurring disasters and hazards:

• Typhoon
• Storm Surge
• Tornado
• Landslide
• Earthquake
• Tsunami
• Volcanic Eruption
• El Nino and La Nina Phenomena

In case the calamity is not caused by natural disasters or by geological processes, the Fund shall conduct an internal assessment upon the approval of the Board on whether the Fund will open the program to cover the calamity.

Eligible members must avail of the Pag-IBIG Calamity Loan within a period of ninety (90) days from the declaration of a state of calamity by the Office of the President or the Sangguniang Bayan for their area of residence.

Borrower’s Eligibility

You must have the following to qualify for the loan:

• At least twenty-four (24) monthly membership savings under the Pag-IBIG Regular Savings;
• Active membership, by having at least one (1) monthly membership savings within the last six (6) months before the date of loan application;

The borrower must also be a Filipino citizen and must live in an area under the State of Calamity as declared by the Office of the President or the Local Sanggunian.

Qualified members may borrow up to 80% of their total Pag-IBIG Regular Savings, which consist of their monthly contributions, their employer’s contributions, and accumulated dividends earned. If you have an outstanding Multi-Purpose and/or Calamity Loan, the amount of loan you will receive shall be the difference between the 80% of your total Pag-IBIG Regular Savings and the outstanding balance of your loan/s.

This means that the more you save in your Pag-IBIG Regular Savings, the higher loan amount you may apply for via the MPL.
