To begin the application procedure for the Pag-IBIG Housing Loan, proceed to the NCR or regional branch of Pag-IBIG with a valid ID and pick up an MSVS. Once you have finished and given back the MSVS, they will return it to you with an acknowledgement receipt (AR), the PHLAF and the Checklist of Requirements (COR).

Find out which branch of Pag-IBIG (whether NCR or a regional branch) has jurisdiction over the property that you are loaning for and go there. Once there, you are to surrender two filled-up copies of the PHLAF, as well as the required documents. Go to your online Membership Registration System, fill up or update the information and obtain a system-generated Member’s Data Form or MDF (The document should have a registration tracking number).

Once you have claimed a payment order form (POF), bring it to the cashier and pay them a processing fee of P1,000 to be given a Pag-IBIG Fund Receipt (PFR). Photocopy the PFR and give the copy to the NCR office Member Services Support Divisio-Servicing Department or your regional branch’s Housing Loans Division in exchange for an acknowledgement receipt.

(The Mortgage Loans Specialist should be given 5 working days to report any findings while conducting the credit investigation of the member. The property appraiser will let the member know within 5 working days when the appraisal will take place, and will also give the result of the evaluation 2 working days after the appraisal.)

The third and final installment of the Pag-IBIG Housing Loan series will cover loan approval and release.
