Here is the latest Pag-ibig Contribution Table or HDMF Contribution Table in 2021. The Home Development Mutual Fund helps Pag-ibig members generate savings, earn dividends, and avail housing loans and other loans offered by Pag-ibig.
Unlike the SSS and PhilHealth who increased their monthly contributions requirements effective January 2021, the Home Development Mutual Fund (Pag-ibig Fund) postponed increasing their contribution requirements because of the pandemic.
In consideration with the economic crisis caused by the covid19 pandemic, HDMF rescheduled the plan to increase contributions by 2022.
All employees, employers, OFWs, non-working spouses, and kasambahay members must know their updated Pag-ibig monthly contribution to ensure income growth.

Pag-ibig Contribution Rates for Household Employers and Kasambahay Members
Kasambahay members will pay no share of their monthly HDMF contributions if their monthly salary falls below 5,000 because household employers must shoulder their full contributions. Otherwise, the kasambahay, will pay a 2% share.
How to compute Pag-ibig Contributions?
The maximum monthly compensation allowed to compute each employee’s Pag-ibig contribution is currently set at P5,000. It means that the maximum contribution a member can pay per month is currently P100 and the employer’s share applied to that maximum contribution is also P100.
If you are employed and receiving more than 5,000 every month, you will be deducted 100 every month to cover your employee share. Your employer will also pay 100 to your Home Development Mutual Fund (employer share).
How Pagibig Fund earns money?
Pagibig (HDMF) is a mutual fund. All the money you will contribute to the HDMF will be pooled and invested in different financial instruments, usually government funds or money markets. These Mutual funds then will earn income from those investments. As a member of the Home Development Mutual Fund, you are entitled to that income.
