Pag-IBIG Fund ID Replacement
According the official Facebook page of the Home Development Mutual Fund, also known as the Pag-IBIG Fund “We no longer issue ID cards, what we issue now is what we call the Transaction Card. This card is not considered as a valid ID. The card contains your MID number and security code. This card is issued by the branch where your MID number was generated. If you would like to inquire if your MID number or Transaction Card has been released or generated, please call 724-4244. In the event that your card has not been issued yet, please wait until the next batch of MID numbers are generated.”
Pag-Ibig advised its members without the MID yet to secure a registration tracking number (RTN) at any Pag-Ibig branch or through their website www.pagibigfund.gov.ph.
The RTN can be used in place of the MID. Or you can get Pag-IBIG Loyalty Card.
And remember regarding Affidavit of Loss, it doesn’t have to be specific, if you lost your ID together with other ID’s and cards, you can suggest to the Public Attorney to indicate all lost items in your affidavit. Just like what had happen to me, I lost my wallet with PhilHealth & TIN card. Here’s my notarized Affidavit of Loss for your reference.
That’s it, just wait for a few more days to process your application and you can have your ID’s back. I hope this article serves a little help, particularly for beginners online & don’t forget to share to your friends & relatives. God Bless.
