What is Pag-IBIG?

Why it is important that I know how much is being deducted?
Knowing how much the deductions on your payslip is a big thing simply because it is your payslip and it is the reason why you work. Also, being able to know how much is being deducted can be a great factor in maintaining a balanced and well-managed salary.

P 1,500.00 and Below 1% 2% 3%
Over P 1,500.00 2% 2% 4%
As you can see, if your basic monthly salary is Php12, 000.00, your HDMF contribution is calculated as: Php11, 000.00 x 0.02. The employer’s part is also calculated like that and if we are to compute that, the result would be Php220.00 for you (the employee), and Php220.00 for the employer. It’s basic, right? Once you know your monthly compensation, it will be easy for you to deduce how much you contribute to the HDMF Fund.
In case you have future plan in getting a house in the next few years, you may ask your finance or human resources officers to adjust your HDMF monthly contribution because the bigger the contribution you have, the bigger and better the loan you will be getting once you file for one.
