As a Regular Employee, each one is required to acquire Government Identification Numbers. This will be used by our employers for our benefit remittances. I, myself had completed securing all the required Membership including SSS, Philhealth and Pag-Ibig.
Question, do you know what is your Pag-Ibig Membership Identification Number? Think of it? Did you know that years ago, Pag-Ibig allows every employee to just use ther SSS Number for their Pag-Ibig Remittances. But this year, pag Ibig requires every one to have their own Pag-Ibig Membership Identification Number. Starting July 1, 2012, Pag-IBIG will only use Pag-IBIG Membership Identification (MID) numbers as basis for membership contributions. All employees, therefore, must register for and acquire an Pag-IBIG Membership ID number to ensure that the contributions are properly remitted to and recorded with the Pag-IBIG Fund. But How can you do it without the hassle? Simple, you do the Pag-ibig Membership Identification Number Application online!
To start of our tutorials on how to apply for your Pag-Ibig Membership Identification Numbers, you are required to have your SSS Number and TIN Number ready. If you don’t have it yet, then get one. Visit the official website of Pag-Ibig. Under the Benefits and Program Tab, click on the Membership Programs. I have also provided in this blog screenshot images for your references in case you’re lost. (Important: Enlarge the images by clicking it!).
After the page loads, scroll down at the bottom of the screen and you can see three (3) tabs.
Registering at the Branch for your Pag-IBIG Membership Identification Numbers which I really don’t recommend for you to do, honestly. It’s just too time consuming. I’d rather sleep than to pay a visit the local Pag-Ibig Branch. The Flow chart which I’m really sure you’ll not be interested after seeing it. But you can try to look at it, (it’s a free country!). And the last one is Register via Internet which is you should click select. It will open a small window and will show you the next items.
Since you are trying to register and want to secure your Pag-Ibig Membership Identification Numbers, you should select Register as New Member (Click the radio button to select your choice). At the bottom, click the button that says Continue.
The next page is all about CAPTCHA. Just enter the Letters or Numbers displayed in your screen correctly. This is a security feature which helps to avoid infestation of bots in using the Pag-IBIG Membership Identification Numbers webpage. Enlarge the image on I’ve shown to be sure. No extensive discussions needed here.
Once you’re done with the captcha, you will now arrive at the first page of your Online Membership Registration Form for your Pag-Ibig Membership Identification Numbers. The first page of your Pag-Ibig Membership Identification registration page includes basic information about you. Fill up the required fields such as your complete name (First, Middle and Last names) and the name of your Mother and Father. Click the Next button below to proceed to the second page.
The Other info tab requires you to supply your Date of birth under the mm/dd/yyyy format. The Place of birth is a little bit tricky. You don’t need to type it in. Under the box, click the “Click to get Place of Birth link” , It will open another window and check IF you’re birth place is outside the Philippines (meaning Abroad) or IF not, select you’re Region. I was born in National Region so I will select it under my region. Then the City where I was born which is in Makati City. Click Ok and it will be automatically populated.
The next information you’ll be filling up is your Gender, TIN Number, SSS ID Number and GSIS ID Number if available. Don’t forget also the information at the right side which are the Citizenship (mostly Filipino), your Civil Status (if you’re Single, Married or It’s in Complicated status on Facebook. lol). The Spouse name is required depending on your answer on Civil Status. Click Next at the bottom to continue your Pag-IBIG Membership Identification Numbers registration.
On the Address Tab of Pag-IBIG Membership Identification Numbers registration, supply your correct Address. Your Address should be entered correctly based on spaces provided. This requires a little bit of thinking on how you gonna do it. If you arrived at the City/Municipality Text box, you need to click first the ZIP CODE link at the right hand. Again, it will open a new window and you have to select the correct Region, City/Municipality and Baranggay. After your selections, click OK button and it will automatically populate the require field in you address.
In my case, my Baranggay is not listed. What I did is I just selected the CPO or Central Post Office. I believed that as long as it’s in the same city and correctly entered your address, everything is fine.
Check the “Check if same as above” to copy what you have written previously. It saves time. “Check if Abroad” if you’re in foreign country and enter your correct address. If you have different address which is your present location, correctly type it in. On the bottom of the page, (Preferred Mailing Address ) check where you want any mails to be delivered.
On the contacts tab, type in the email address. Enter (if available) your Home Telephone Number, Office Telephone number and the most important, your Mobile phone number. Click next to move on to the next Pag-IBIG Membership Identification Numbers Tab.
As a Member of Pag-Ibig, you are entitle of benefits. Especially when you’re aleady dead! (hahahaha) Well, all I can think of about this page (Beneficiaries) is about death, sorry ’bout that! My bad :) lol. Anyway, If you’re unmarried you can simply enroll your closest family member which can be your Parents and Siblings. You cannot enroll someone without legal relationship with them.
Sorry, you cannot enroll your neighbors or your girlfriends as your Beneficiary. lol.
After finishing the Beneficiary Tab, you are now set to fill up the Member Category. In this tab, you are about to classify yourself whether you are an Employed under Private or Government Company or a Private Household, Self Employed, an OFW, Individual Payor or not yet Employed. Once you select one, the page will automatically load information that you need to fill up. The information required is all about your Employment Information which you can easily fill up.
The next tab is only applicable to those members with Employment History, if you’re not ever been employed then you can skip this part. Click the Add Employment Detail Link and it will open another small window. Click Next to continue your Pag-IBIG Membership Identification Numbers application.
The Employment details requires the Pag-IBIG Membership Identification Numbers applicant to fill out the Company Name, its address and the month and year when he/she was employed. Click Save and it will appear on the list. Add another Employment detail if applicable. Click next for the final and last step of Pag-IBIG Membership Identification Numbers application.
We’re almost finished! (Hoooray!). You are in the Summary Tab, and there’s only three button.
The BACK button, if you want to review everything what you have written before which I don’t suggest to use. Because the page has a navigational bar whenever you need to go back to a certain tab.
The second button is the “REVIEW MDF“. The function of this button is to show you your accomplished Pag-IBIG Membership Identification Numbers application / Member’s Data Form. You can review it if there’s typographical errors. Review it carefully, I beg you.
The third button is the “Submit Registration”. Whenever you’re satisfied on what you’ve written then you can submit it.
Success! You’re done, after clicking the Submit Registration button, you will be led to this page. Read it if you like. It just states that your Pag-IBIG Membership Identification Numbers Application is successful. If you have available printer, you can print it. If you don’t. You can just leave it for a while.

What you need to do now is to regularly check if you have been issued a Pag-Ibig Membership Identification Number. It took me two days before I got mine. How did I know? Well, look at the image below:
Notice that the Pag-Ibig MID No. at the upper left hand of the form is blank. Two days after I screen shot that image (which is my actual and real MDF form) I checked my registration and saw that the Pag-Ibig MID No. is not blank anymore. I already have my Pag-Ibig Number. My officemate got her Pag-IBIG Membership Identification Numbers in just 15 Minutes!
