Joining him are (from left, partially hidden) DOLE Undersecretary Ciriaco Lagunzad III, Pag-IBIG Deputy CEO Alexander Aguilar, Pag-IBIG Trustees Gregorio Montenegro and Ma. Lorelei Fajardo, Housing Secretary and Pag-IBIG Fund Chairman Jose Rizalino Acuzar, and Pag-IBIG CEO Marilene Acosta.

In a span of only three months after Pag-IBIG Fund entered partnerships  with the country’s top transport networks to provide better access to its  membership, 13,128 delivery drivers and riders have registered as Pag-IBIG  members and now enjoy the agency’s benefits. 

“We are very happy that a growing number of delivery riders are now part of the  more than 15.6 million active members of Pag-IBIG Fund. As members of Pag-IBIG  Fund, they now have secure savings and shall gain access to our affordable home  loans. This is in line with our efforts to provide inclusive housing to all Filipino  workers under the Pambansang Pabahay para sa Pilipino Housing or 4PH Program  of President Ferdinand R. Marcos, Jr.,” said Secretary Jose Rizalino L. Acuzar,  who leads the Department of Human Settlements and Urban Development  (DHSUD) and the 11-member Pag-IBIG Fund Board of Trustees. 

Earlier this year, Pag-IBIG Fund partnered with transport network &  app-based courier companies Angkas, foodpanda, Grab, Lalamove and  Pick-A-Roo. With the partnerships, delivery riders are provided better access  to Pag-IBIG Fund membership to allow them to enjoy the agency’s benefits  that include its Regular and MP2 Savings, short-term cash loans, affordable  home loans and the Pag-IBIG Loyalty Card Plus. 

Pag-IBIG Fund Chief Executive Officer Marilene C. Acosta, meanwhile,  expects that the number of delivery riders who shall become Pag-IBIG Fund  members will continue to rise, especially with the agency’s ongoing Pag-IBIG  Asenso Rider Raffle Promo, a special raffle promo for delivery riders. 

“We remain committed to our mandate of bringing the benefits of Pag-IBIG Fund  membership to more Filipino workers. This includes our delivery riders, whose  service have become vital in our daily lives. That is why in addition to bringing them  better access to Pag-IBIG Fund membership, we are also providing our delivery  riders the opportunity to win special prizes to help them with their livelihood with  the Pag-IBIG Asenso Rider Raffle Promo. All these are among the many ways how  we bring our Lingkod Pag-IBIG Brand of Service – Tapat na Serbisyo, Mula sa Puso  – to our members,” Acosta added.
