Every employee must contribute to the Pag-IBIG Fund on a regular basis if they want to take advantage of all the benefits given by the Home Development Mutual Fund (HDMF).
It’s very crucial to check if all of your contributions are showing up in your account because having at least 24 monthly contributions is one of the primary prerequisites for getting a house loan or any other Pag-IBIG loan.
That said, it’s critical to check if you’ve met that criterion, which you can do by accessing the Virtual Pag-IBIG portal and monitoring your payments online.

What is Pag-IBIG Contributions Consolidation?
It’s quite probable that your Pag-IBIG contributions and records will not appear on your Virtual Pag-IBIG account if you’ve worked for several firms in different regions. This is due to the fact that your records have not yet been consolidated.
The Pag-IBIG Fund’s attempts to consolidate its members’ data, whether from several sources owing to a history of working for various companies or enterprises, into a single destination record are referred to as record consolidation.
Various member record sources are combined or merged into a single member data record throughout this procedure, which will be displayed when you log into your Virtual Pag-IBIG account.
Why Consolidate Pag-IBIG Contributions?
You must seek consolidation of your contribution records if your Virtual Pag-IBIG account does not reflect all Pag-IBIG contributions paid under your name.
PAG-IBIG members may also need to request record consolidation for the following reasons:
- Having worked for a variety of companies in the past;
- Having intentions to take out a home equity loan or a personal loan; or,
- They have inconsistencies in their Pag-IBIG data, particularly in their names.

How to consolidate record if I have discrepancies in my name?
If you wind up with two different records as a consequence of an error or inconsistency in your complete given name, you’ll need to cooperate with the employer that made the mistake and obtain a Certificate of Oneness.
What if I cannot obtain a Certificate of Oneness?
You may submit a duly completed and notarized copy of the Joint Affidavit of Two Disinterested Person form if your previous company that made the erroneous name in your Pag-IBIG Fund record has already closed down or cannot be tracked due to any other circumstances such as a change of address, the employer not responding, etc. This, along with the other basic prerequisites to process the Merging or consolidation of your Pag-IBIG Fund contribution records, must be manually submitted to the nearest Pag-IBIG Fund branch, since this sort of request for application of Merging of Records cannot be done through email.
