DUMAGUETE CITY (PIA) – For its 35th anniversary, the Home Development Mutual Fund (HDMF) or Pag-ibig Fund here has embarked an electronic collection and remittance including loyalty card to make its services accessible to members.
Branch head Julio Carmel Alfarero of Pag-ibig Fund Dumaguete said this effort under its Circular no. 355 mandates all employers from government and private sectors to remit their employees’ membership savings and loan amortization through its accredited partner-banks.
This program also saves time and transportation costs as employers can remit their monthly contributions and payment of short term loans using the e-collect.
With 61,781 Pag-ibig members in Negros Oriental, this reform will ensure faster transactions as soon as the employers have registered with Pag-ibig and the partner-bank of employer’s choice will provide the employer with user ID and password.
Meantime, Alfarero has also urged the members to secure the new Members Loyalty Card.
“The card serves as an additional benefit for the members, card holder can avail certain percentage discount in medicines, tuition fee, fuel from over 50 merchant partners nationwide so far,” Alfarero said.
