How to Invest in Pag-IBIG MP2 Savings Program

Just recently, we shared about how OFWs can save money through the SSS Flexi-Fund. Today, we are going to share about another investment opportunity: the Pag-IBIG MP2 Savings Program.

You might be thinking, isn’t Pag-IBIG just for housing loans? Definitely not! Aside from the current Pag-IBIG 1 (P1) program, it also offers the “Modified Pag-IBIG” or MP2 — a voluntary program where you can earn tax-free savings at higher interest rates than most banks.

Planning to invest? Try the Pag-IBIG MP2 Program.

Whether you are residing in the Philippines or working abroad, as long as you are an existing Pag-IBIG 1 (P1) member, you are qualified to join the MP2 Program. If you are looking for a good investment for your hard-earned money, then consider this as a possible option.

Pag-IBIG MP2 Savings Program Features
Wondering what the MP2 Program is all about? Here are its basic features:

  • Tax-free, voluntary program
  • 5-year term, renewable at end of term
  • Minimum monthly deposit of PHP 500
  • Higher yield due to higher dividend rates
  • Savings option for Pag-IBIG 1 (P1) members
  • Higher return of investment (POI) than most bank accounts

What’s more, if you miss making a monthly deposit, your Total Accumulated Value (TAV) will not be forfeited — unlike insurance plans, VULs, and other pre-need programs. In other words, the MP2 Savings Program is a low-risk option for “conservativeinvestors.
