In light of the widespread devastation brought by storm Ondoy, Pag-IBIG is assisting its members by extending calamity loan availments to them. Igan Arnold Clavio of Unang Hirit interviewed Pag-IBIG CEO Jaime Fabiana to explain how members can avail of the calamity loan.
In the interview, Mr. Fabiana cited the example of an employee who's been a Pag-IBIG member for 15 years. "Ang mahihiram ng miyembro will depend on the total savings of a member with Pag-IBIG. So halimbawa yung isang miyembro na may 15 years na sa Pag-IBIG fund, more or less yung savings niya sa Pag-IBIG meron na rin siyang P50,000 so 80 percent of that puwede niyang mahiram that will be around P40,000. 'Yan yung makukuha niya sa aming calamity loan program... Yung P40,000 babayaran niya for 2 years pero binibigyan namin yung borrower ng 5 months na grace period kaya nga mag-uumpisa siyang magbayad sa loan on the 6th month," explained Fabiana.
Pag-IBIG accepts calamity loan applications in field offices. Pag-IBIG members need to fill up the application forms signed by their employers and file them with Pag-IBIG field offices together with valid IDs.
Malaking tulong ang calamity loan program na ito ng Pag-IBIG para sa mga kababayan natin sa kanilang muling pagbangon mula sa hagupit ni bagyong Ondoy.
