With the rise of the pandemic, several government agencies and institutions are continuously helping out the entire country. They’re giving out loans — furthermore, they’re providing financial aids.
One of the loans that have been announced to be available is the Pag-IBIG loan. However, in order for you to apply, you need several account-specific information such as your Pag-IBIG Membership Identification Number (MID).
In this article, we will help you retrieve your Pag-IBIG MID number in case you forgot it. This can greatly help you in applying for loans!
Lost Pag-IBIG MID Number
To be eligible for loans and benefits, a Pag-IBIG member must be able to pay the monthly contributions that come. Moreover, it is also needed for a member to be aware of his or her MID number — but what if it got lost?
However, there are some cases in which a person may have lost or forgotten his or her Pag-IBIG number.
So what would be the best thing to do? Would you be able to retrieve it? Before, the only way to retrieve a lost or a forgotten Pag-IBIG MID number is by calling them.
However, it has been one of the best things that it is now possible to retrieve your Pag-IBIG MID number through the use of Virtual Pag-IBIG website.
Without further ado, here’s how you can retrieve it via the Virtual Pag-IBIG:
- Open the virtual Pag-IBIG website and select “Be a Member” and then “Verify MID No.”
- Input your registration tracking number (RTN), last name, and date of birth in this format (YYYY-MM-DD).
- Hit on “SUBMIT.”
Your Pag-IBIG Membership ID (MID) number will appear onscreen. Copy or write it down for your reference so you won’t lose it again!
Quick Note: You may only follow this method if you have your Pag-IBIG Registration Tracking Number or RTN.
If you fall under the unfortunate circumstance of being unable to access the website or you may have forgotten your RTN, there are still some methods you may follow to retrieve your Pag-IBIG MID number.
