For some reason, there may be cases where a person may fail to continuously pay their mandatory deductions as employed individuals. May it is because of resignation or end of contracts for others, one may find themselves questioning as to how they can continue paying their monthly premiums to the various government agencies.

Well, in the case of Pag-IBIG fund, records of contributions made by an existing member which has stopped working or have made defaults in the supposed monthly payments are still kept on a system. So, when the member decides to continue payments either voluntarily or through a different employer, he may do so.

However, the Fund does not accept/allow retroactive payments for those unpaid months. It will automatically be considered as gap/s in the monthly contributions.

These are the things required for a person to start or continue their contribution payments to Pag-IBIG Fund:
