Several visitors to this site who are based outside of the Philippines have asked me about how to go about contributing to the Pag-ibig Fund.
The e-payment system will hopefully make it easier for you to pay your monthly contributions.
Some overseas Pinoys have also inquired if it is possible to apply for Pag-Ibig Overseas Program (POP) membership online. There’s currently no such thing.
However, overseas Pinoys may file their application with any of the following offices:
* Pag-Ibig Overseas Program (POP) Office
* POP Overseas Offices
* Accredited Overseas Marketing Representatives
* Metro Manila and Provincial Offices
There are POP overseas offices in North America, Europe, Middle East, and Asia Pacific.
Once you are a member, paying the monthly contributions is easy through the e-payment system. The system allows POP members to pay through any remittance center or overseas branch of the Philippine National Bank (PNB).
The e-payment system, called the Overseas Bills Payment System, was launched only last month. Pag-Ibig, in a news release, said the system utilizes PNB’s overseas banking network to optimize service to Filipinos overseas.
