Anu Ang Pagkakaiba ng MP2 Savings vs MP1?
Ang MP1 ng PAG-IBIG ay ang regular at mandatory contribution mo as a member.
Ito ay deducted sa iyong sahod or kung voluntary member ka namn, ito ang amount na monthly na dapat mo bayaran.
The multi-purpose loan of PAG-IBIG is computed based on your MP1 contributions.
Ibig sabihin, kapag mag-fifile ka ng multi-purpose loan sa PAG-IBIG, i-cocompute nito ang 80% ng MP1 contribution mo para sa iyong loanable amount.
Ang MP1 din ay ang isa sa basehan or factor kapag kukuha ka ng housing loan sa PAG-IBIG.

Ang PAG-IBIG MP2 Savings ay hindi mandatory. Ito ay voluntary ngunit kinakailangan meron ka munang MP1 bago makapag-open ng MP2 Savings.

After 5 years, kailangan mo na itong i-withdraw mula sa PAG-IBIG at pwede din naman na hayaan mo ito sa PAG-IBIG fund.
