Freelancers are welcome to start or continue their Pag-IBIG contributions (minimum of PhP200 per month or higher every year); just visit the Pag-IBIG office.
If you're a freelancer hoping to reactivate your membership, prepare for the following as you may be asked as well to submit them (for voluntary membership):
- Two valid IDs and one 1x1 picture
- Proof of billing (e.g., Meralco, PDLT, cable, or Internet connection)
- Certificate of employment (BIR Certificate of Registration for professional income earners)
- Commission voucher (e.g., photocopy of the latest official receipt you issued your client)
- Contribution from a minimum of Php200/month and up (see chart below for details.)
Succeeding payments may be completed using the Pag-IBIG online payment facility. But payments made through the online payment facility do not get posted immediately. Paying directly to the nearest Pag-IBIG office is thus most recommendable.
You probably want to know about the consolidated amount of your Pag-IBIG contributions online, similar to the website feature we can access from the SSS member's log-in page. Unfortunately, the Pag-IBIG website does not have such system at the moment. Meantime, members may request for a printout of their updated contributions from the Pag-IBIG office nearest their location.

Berberabe on photo, being the first Filipina and second Filipino awarded the Asia Pacific CEO of the Year (2013), encourages members to "save more with Pag-IBIG and qualify for higher loan amounts and bigger dividend earnings" (Source: Pag-IBIG website, Save More with Pag-IBIG Fund).

Pag-IBIG Online Services include membership registration, online payment facility, housing loan application, and others.
