Tip: If you are only paying for one month of Pag-IBIG contribution, we suggest that you use your credit or debit card as you will only pay a convenience fee of ₱1.75, which is 1.75% of ₱100. However, if you opt to pay a higher amount or cover more months, we suggest that you choose GCash or Maya since you will only pay a flat rate of ₱5 as a convenience fee.
