Pag-IBIG Fund – Home Development Mutual Fund
To our friends in the Filipino Community in the Netherlands,
We are pleased to inform you of the recent signing by Her Excellency President Gloria
Macapagal-Arroyo of Republic Act 9679 or the Home Development Fund Law of 2009.
With the new law, which took effect 1 January 2010, membership to the Fund has become
mandatory for all employees covered by the Social Security System (SSS) and the
Government Service Insurance System (GSIS), regardless of their status of employment
or nature of appointment. Mandatory Fund coverage now also extends to include
Filipino seafarers and other Filipinos working for foreign-based employers. The Pag-IBIG
Fund coverage of overseas Filipino workers will provide them greater access to the savings and
loan benefits which are exclusively available to Fund members.
