What is an MP2 Savings Program?
The Pag-IBIG MP2 Savings program or Modified Pag-IBIG 2 savings is a special savings facility available for Pag-IBIG fund members. It’s different from the usual Pag-IBIG regular savings deducted from your payroll if you’re employed. Simply put, this program is voluntary.
Pag-IBIG fund members can save more through this program while earning higher dividends. The more you save, the more dividends you earn. It’s also important to note that dividends are tax-free. You can withdraw this annually or after the five-year maturity.
This is available for natural-born Filipino fund members, pensioners, and retirees. Active fund members must at least have a one-month contribution within the last six months. Also, regardless of age, you can save via MP2 as long as you have 24 monthly savings before retirement.
